My journey to setting up Sian Rowsell Coaching and Training
Having had a very successful and varied career in pharmaceuticals (mentoring, change leadership, continuous improvement, team leadership, project and portfolio management across global cross-functional teams), I have chosen to do full time what I really love: coaching and facilitation.
Early in 2014 I received coaching myself which was aimed at me figuring out ’What next??’ – I knew after 16 years in a corporate role that I wanted to do something different career-wise but didn’t know what…
Through the course of the coaching sessions I explored what activities and aspects of my current role, hobbies and volunteer work I found rewarding and fulfilling (coaching, facilitating, delivering workshops, teaching) and considered how I could turn these into a career that made me jump out of bed in the morning going ’Woo hoo!’
In 2014 (thanks to the coaching I received), I ’took a brave pill’ and took the leap into self-employment as a coach and facilitator, helping individuals and teams enjoy a more fulfilling life inside and outside of work, combined with teaching dancing – shaping how I spend my time so that I have the kind of days and weeks that make me jump out of bed eager to start the day. Woo hoo!
I started dancing while at university in London, quickly became hooked and competed for the Imperial College Ballroom team. Combining my coaching skills and my passion for dance, I teach adult Ballroom and Latin American classes and also provide personal tuition at Mykita dance studios in Macclesfield.
“You don’t stop dancing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop dancing”
Unknown – let’s never find out if this is true!
