About personal success coaching
“Men who lack or feel out of balance”

This type of coaching is specifically designed for men who lead extremely busy lives professionally, personally and socially.

We live in a society today that demands the utmost of our time and resources. Men have to learn to juggle their professions and family lives and still find the time to socialise. Unfortunately this balancing act often becomes unmanageable for most men. This, in turn, leads to disrupted families, burn-out and a diminished overall lifestyle.

Coaching can help you put the tools and control back in your life.

What can you expect from personal success coaching?

  • Learn to de-clutter your life.
  • Control your emotions.
  • Figure out what’s really important to you.
  • Get your needs met in a healthy way.
  • Engage a healthy mind perspective.
  • Learn to see what’s already good in your life, and how to have more of it!

Professional development coaching is for men and women who want more out of life, who realise that they are not where they want to be and are prepared to take responsibility and action!

Come and explore the world that awaits you!

What can you expect from professional development coaching?

  • Discover your life’s purpose.
  • Set goals and then mega goals for your future.
  • Align your values with your new goals to ensure success.
  • Make sure your 6 human needs are being met in your new venture.
  • Discover and eliminate any limiting beliefs that may hinder you from tackling new challenges.

    1.What difference has coaching with Tim made in your life?: The biggest difference was the realisation that my perception of myself, based on my past experiences, kept me back from enjoying my future. I use the word “perception” has they weren’t based on facts and reality. Kicking the legs out from under these lies and building on a foundation of facts has proven to be invaluable.

    2.What can you do now that you couldn’t before coaching?: Coaching with Tim has given me the handles to take on seemingly daunting goals – break them down, deal with doubts and insecurities and take responsibility to take action on them.

    3.What has changed your life?: The ability to think about my dreams once again. To look at the current reality of my life and appreciate what I currently have in my hand, but also sit back and dream about the things that are in my heart. It changes the way you approach life.

    4.What new skills has coaching provided you with?: To take the approach used in my coaching sessions to apply it to all avenues of my life.

    5.What would you say to someone thinking of hiring Timothy as a coach?: Do it!

    Through the few months I’ve been doing life coaching with Timothy, my life, the way I see, experience, live and enjoy life has changed dramatically. Timothy has given me the tools to destroy old dysfunctional belief systems that did not serve in reaching my goals and helped me build new belief systems around my most important values, thus empowering me to be more productive and effective in my current job function and also in achieving more long term goals. I have a “learning difficulty” called dysgraphia similar to dyslexia. Timothy listened but more importantly understood my needs in this regard to how he approached the course material with me. That was extremely important to me and made a lot of difference. For the first time in my life I’ve been able to understand, develop and clarify my goals and steps needed to manage, direct my energy and resources to produce the results I wanted. I have attended many workshops and learning courses, and self- help programs. This life coaching course has been the best as with regards to measurable improvements in my Job, in my finances, in my relationships, and in my overall general well being. I have recommended Timothy King as a life coach to my family, close friends and work colleagues in the hope that they too would reap the benefits I’ve experienced.

    Finding the right coach is sometimes a challenge. I believe a good coach needs to effectively guide you in learning how to manage and deal with the various challenges in life. Are you perhaps not happy with where you find yourself in life? Or are you aware of problems you should face, but don’t? Things that need doing or goals that need to be reached, but never do? I know I had things that bothered me and I needed to them sort out, and decided to do something about it. A good life coach and program can truly help anyone seeking to learn how to improve themselves, their self-belief and how they organize their life so that they meet targets and conquer challenges. And also importantly learn how to do this on an ongoing basis.
    For me personally I would recommend Timothy and the Lead Life Coaching program to anyone seeking to unlock the true potential within them. I have benefited tremendously from the program and Timothy’s coaching guidance.
    I hope you also have a true life changing experience like I had. Just decide and take action.

    Coaching with Timothy has really enhanced my life by guiding me on this wonderful journey of personal growth and contribution. I am now more confident, I believe that I am a leader and that through God nothing is impossible. I have become a better leader that cares greatly for others and contributes more to society at large. Coaching has provided me with the ability to plan and execute stated goals with realistic milestones that are very achievable. I now have the belief and confidence to succeed! The specific results I have achieved include my personal growth and achieving my objectives of which I was very skeptical of in the beginning. If you’re thinking of hiring a life coach, interview various coaches to find that connection. I would definitely recommend Timothy King as a life changing coach! To sum up coaching, coaching has really guided me on the journey to a more fulfilling life, a life with real purpose and a new belief in myself and my abilities.

    “First off I would like to thank my coach for helping me make such a profound difference in my life, coaching has made me a more confident individual and given me the tools to become the person I want to be. I have the ability to find the positive in life and insight to see the way people perceive different situations. I have really enjoyed seeing myself grow in all aspects of importance through this journey and can see how coaching can help anyone to grow in different phases of their life. I also now realise I have the confidence to make better decisions and I can improve my skills as a leader each day. What would I say to anyone thinking of hiring a coach? Simply, It can change your life!

    “Coaching with Timothy has changed my life tremendously and has helped me to properly define what it is that I truly want in life. I can now use my purpose and goals to make better, more informed decisions. Everything including my outlook on life has changed. The way I see things, the way I see myself and what I see myself doing with my life. Coaching has provided me with the skills to set goals and milestones, and to achieve them! I have also learnt to balance my life in order that I might grow. I have now graded at Muay Thai, have gotten the promotion at work I wanted and have achieved my goal weight too. I would say to someone thinking of hiring a coach that it is a very good idea and would urge them to do it as soon as possible!! To sum up my experience, coaching was a great experience that helped guide my choices and decisions in the right way to achieve the results I wanted.”

    “I always heard of the name Tim among my colleagues and how great you are, I know I needed to come see you but like everything else I kept it on hold, till one day my circumstances pushed me to take that step, I can now say with gratification in my heart that I am so so glad I took that 1st step.
    The sessions I did helped me in so many ways, I always thought that I have a moderately good picture of how things seem to be but you showed me that I have only been seeing the tip of the iceberg you “opened my eyes” to an entire new world on how my situations look and truly are, making me aware of things I never saw in that perspective and I realised if I have never seen the bigger picture I would have dealt with my life’s circumstances in the wrong way.
    The sessions were 100 times and more worth the money I paid and I will recommend it to everyone I meet. I can easily say that I feel more comfortable with who I am and the things I am dealing with in my life, that I feel I have more control over the things I never thought I had control over and how to deal with the things I do not have control over, I know now that I am more on the right path than ever of being the person I was meant to be.
    The energy you put into yourself the amount of time, money and effort you are willing to give up for your future – I chose you Tim to give me a chance to be the best me I can be and I will chose you over and over again. You are really an inspiration to me and have helped me so much. I will be forever grateful for the people that introduced me to you.”

    Everybody who is anybody now days can become a “Life Coach”, but a true “Life Coach” has that extra something about them and there is one person that comes to mind immediately, and it’s Timothy King. When it was first suggested to me that I go see a life coach I was rather apprehensive. What could a life coach do that a psychologist couldn’t. With a lot of hesitation and scepticism, I took up the suggestion, made the phone call and went to my first session. Needless to say a year later I am writing this testimonial as I head into my last session of coaching.
    During my year with Tim, I have found him to be wise beyond his years. A real no nonsense, straightforward, and kind hearted person. The wisdom, knowledge and vast insight he has regarding life and all of its struggles from family issues to addiction, from insecurities and emotional turmoil, to faith or lack thereof – whichever place you find yourself in – he will be able to guide you through it all, step by step.No matter how stubborn a person you are. And believe me when I say I am probably one of the most stubborn people Tim has ever met – yet he was patient, understanding and firm when needed. And I survived through it all to tell the story. With Tim guiding you through the process you will come out the other side a recovering, stronger and a more contented you.

    The weekly sessions were filled with all kinds of discussion points and emotions, from sad to anger, happy and laughter to shame and embarrassment. Tim was throughout it all professional and sympathetic, caring and genuinely concerned for my wellbeing. His passion for his work radiates through his words, guidance, advise and teachings. And I can truly say that I will carry his wise words with me into forever, even the words spoken that I didn’t agree with, those too I will carry with me.

    If ever you find yourself or someone you love heading for rock bottom, or battling to stay afloat, I would recommend Tim without thinking twice about it. He changed my life for the better, and as I always say “Happiness is”!!

    What difference has coaching made in your life?
    When I first heard about coaching the first thing that came to my mind was I definitely don’t need a councillor! But my boss had gone and had great results so skeptically went. After the first session with Tim I was hooked and inspired to set goals and actually achieve them. Tim helped me take dreams that I had and make them into a reality. Coaching has helped me with communication and listening skills towards others personally as well as in my working environment. The skills I have picked up and learnt from Tim has helped me in guiding others and helping them with day to day tasks as a mentor and a leader and not just being the boss.
    What can I do now that I couldn’t do before coaching?
    A really great achievement is on a personal level where I wanted to increase my fitness performance. After 6 months I was able to go from not being able to run even 2km to running 10km obstacle races with a smile on my face. I also increase my crossfit max weights from 20kgs to 30kgs.
    What has changed in my life?
    My ability to read others and be patient with them has grown extensively. I have gone from controlling every situation to rather giving and instruction and allowing others to carry it out in their own way and just guiding and being there for them as they have needed me. Thus empowering them in their process of growth.
    What new skills has coaching provided me with?
    The ability to set a goal and stick to it. I have also gained the ability and knowledge to help others through a same process of maintaining and sticking to what they would like to do. Tim’s passion and guidance as well as his caring nature for listening and helping without giving any actual answers has inspired me to do the same for others.
    What specific results have you enjoyed during the coaching programme?
    I have enjoyed all the achievements I have managed on my own (with the help of Tim) from being just an operational manager to stepping up my game to mentoring and supporting my staff and teaching them to the point that I don’t have to be involved in all aspects all the time to also letting go in my home life and not controlling every situation.
    What would you say to someone thinking of hiring a coach?
    I would tell them to stop making excuses as to not hiring the coach. I would tell them you don’t hire a coach because they give you content or resources but rather that they aid you in getting from Point A to B. Tim has a way of motivating people in such a way that you just cannot fail at what you are doing. Sometimes you may have all the information in the world and a degree or doctorate in something making you think you know everything possible but every so often you may actually just need someone to hold your hand through the process.
    To sum up my experience of coaching
    The last 6 months have been the most amazing sometimes frustrating learning curve I have ever gone through. Just knowing that I had a weekly goal and targets to meet kept me motivated and Tim’s encouraging words every 2 weeks helped me to achieve things I never thought even possible. I learnt that me and only me was accountable for all actions and processes in my life. I learnt how blaming others actually doesn’t help you move forward but taking responsibility has helped me to grow in ways I never thought possible.

    Coaching has changed my view of myself on a wholesale basis. Changed my view of my abilities in particular. I can now stay committed and motivated to persevere. I can now engage with negative and limiting beliefs and thoughts in a constructive manner. What has changed? I am more positive. My self esteem has improved. I believe in myself. I am proud of myself.I would definitely recommend coaching but also remind people then that there will be a lot of hard work! This has been an empowering and liberating experience!! Thank you Tim.

    2. What can you do now that you could not do before coaching? I am now able to set inspirational life goals that evoke emotion and lay the responsibility for achieving them firmly at my feet!

    3. What has changed in your life? My self-awareness and the sense of gratitude that I feel on a daily basis. My ability to be less rigid with myself and make it easier for myself to feel good. I consciously do things that make me happy!

    4. What new skills has coaching provided you with? To listen without judging and seek first to understand.

    5. What specific results have you enjoyed during the coaching programme? I achieved my personal development goal and have the ability to re-set and keep working towards my health goals based on the self-knowledge and skills I have gained as a result of the coaching programme.

    6. What would you say to someone thinking of hiring a coach? Do it! This is an opportunity for you to have someone who is on your side to support you, guide you and enable you to gain insight into who you are and who you truly want to be, or become, as you work towards achieving your goals.

    7. Please sum up your experience of coaching in a few words of your own: Surprising, enlightening, humbling, challenging and incredibly rewarding. It has been an empowering journey of self-discovery.

    8. Anything else: This is probably the best gift I could have given myself as I consider and plan how I would like to live the second half of my life!

    Coaching with Timothy has expanded my capabilities and has given me a practical and inspiring way to go after my goals. I can now take action, inspire others and go after the things I truly want! My life has changed in that I am more balanced, more driven and I have a far deeper understanding of who I am. Coaching has provided me with the skills to identify projection, has taught me communication and self analysis skills. The specific results I have enjoyed are realizing my purpose, changing jobs and publishing a book! To someone thinking of hiring a coach I say do it, don’t hesitate , you will not regret it. This is a promise. To sum up coaching in a few words; inspiration, compassion, taking action, self development, purpose and happiness. I am very grateful to have had the privilege of completing the program and working with Timothy.

    The difference coaching has made in my life is that it has taught me to believe in myself, to approach each challenge/goal by writing it down, weighing it up and clearly getting a picture of what I want to achieve. What I can do now that I couldn’t do before coaching is believe that I can start a new business in line with my goals and make a success out of it. What has changed in my life? I now have the time to calmly plan my action steps and spend time with my family and friends that are most important to me. Coaching has also provided me with the skills to plan a goal/challenge on paper and to control any emotions around it. The specific results I have achieved during the program are accomplishing my professional pilots license and working on my business instead of in my business. To someone thinking of hiring a life coach, not only do you learn new skills but you also get a sounding board to talk to. To sum up my experience, life coaching with Timothy gave me back control of my life , emotions and actions in my business and planning.
