You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?

Why coach with me?


If your life is exactly as you’d like it to be then congratulations. In my experience you’re one of the lucky few. For most of us, there’s often a sense there’s a better me, a better career or just a better life out there waiting to be claimed. All these are at the core of ones life goals and aspirations.

While there are almost countless reasons why one might work with a coach, all of them are about growing, transforming, evolving and developing in order to be able to live more optimally in life and career and to achieve those goals.

what they say about me

Rod ... helped me pioneer a path through a forest of forces in my life that had been keeping me stuck for years. His ability to actively listen to my story and mirror back unexamined aspects of it, gave me the agency I needed to level up. Rod Francis has my highest recommendation.

Rod ... helped me pioneer a path through a forest of forces in my life that had been keeping me stuck for years. His ability to actively listen to my story and mirror back unexamined aspects of it, gave me the agency I needed to level up. Rod Francis has my highest recommendation.
Rod is one of the most insightful humans you are likely to encounter in the coaching sphere. He has a unique ability to listen deeply and respond from a place where insights are able to organically emerge. And yet he also works from a background of intellectual rigor, empirical data, and structural mastery. To hold space as Rod does, in multiple realms simultaneously— the liminal, the embodied, the intellectual, the instinctive, the heart and the head- as a coach takes exceptional craft, skill, knowledge, and presence. A rare combination. Working with Rod has deeply shaped my life and work, and my wish is that many others will also receive the impactful experience of sharing their precious time together with him.

Working with Rod is easily the best investment I have made in myself. I have gained more from the experience than I ever anticipated. I know that our time together has changed me forever. Working with Rod was a great adventure. He has an empathetic, non judgemental and compassionate manner. There were often times during our sessions when I thought I had found the edge and then with one question, I was in a free fall. Rod was always right there gently guiding me to places I was not able to get to myself and then often with laughter and his trademark kindness, skilfully ensuring a soft landing. He challenged me to see my strengths, drop what wasn’t working for me and then set about designing my future. He is so skilled at holding space and listening, whilst at the same time encouraging and challenging me to find my answers. I always felt comfortable sharing and trusted him to get me to where I needed to go, even though I was driving the session. His nuggets of wisdom and the resources he shared always lead me in a new direction, challenged my perspective and inspired or reassured me. Rod is a master of his craft. If you are wondering if you should reach out to him - the answer is definitely YES!

So much has changed in the six months I’ve been working with Rod that I feel like I am a new person. When we started, I felt overwhelmed and was under a constant stress of work. In our first session, thanks to Rod, I finally saw that a lot of what was happening was the effect of my decisions, not external circumstances. Rod helped me to set developmental goals and to build a life I wanted and to live it in an easy-going, efficient, fun way. Within a few sessions, I was a changed person. The issues I struggled with for years disappeared one by one. I felt lighter and happier. Interestingly, all of the sudden, numerous professional opportunities appeared, almost as if the Universe was providing me with what I wished for. It’s been an amazing ride since Rod and I started working and I can’t wait to see what the next six months will bring!

My life can be split into two phases: before Rod and after Rod! His coaching helped me to sit up straight, speak my truth, and seize the career I wanted but never dared to reach for.

I have a lot of respect for the way in which Rod embodies what he stands for. Whether it be in his role as a coach or as a teacher, he lives and breathes Presence.

The space he creates during the sessions and the wisdom he brings to the process enable me to access invaluable insights and the motivation to take meaningful action.

Working with Rod was a life changing decision for me. As I reflect it was Rod’s nature of holding space for me to think, for him to be a support to me, listen and not judge. Over time this gave me permission to be kinder to myself and free up so many more opportunities. This has been liberating for me and I am truly grateful.

After 20 years of working in the software industry, climbing the ladder and growing a family with three kids, I came up for air and started looking for what should come next. How do I aim for that next level in life and career?  Rod has been instrumental in helping me work through goal setting, creating more self awareness and clarity of feelings and values. His process and resources have helped me gain valuable insight, skills and habits that have set me on the course of personal and professional growth both exciting and rewarding.

I started working with Rod a few months ago. In this time I have been through some profound changes due to the work we have done together. (The) work has been exceptionally surprising and revealing to me, even after 13 years of various kinds of personal development work – I found I was very surprised by the simplicity and depth of this experience … What I set out to achieve has radically changed, some of my goals have already manifested whilst I am really getting to the heart of what I really want and what is of real truth to me in other areas. This again has been unexpected and I feel that I am very gently starting to trust myself and new approaches to life … It has been a gift.
