The Cheerleader

Naomi Honey:
Yeah, absolutely. So, as a coach, I work with people really closely. We work one-on-one. And we look at, okay, what do they want in their lives? What are the changes that they want? And that can be practical, tangible goals, and it can be emotional stuff as well of … Sometimes my clients want more confidence, whether that’s in their personal life, at work, whatever. And so, the range of what we might work on is huge. But particularly I work with people who aren’t living the lives that they want. And often I work with a lot of professionals. So, part of my line is people who work too much and live too little, or people who are going through the motions rather than living fully. Craig’s looking very guilty here. And and I help people to really reset that balance.

Naomi Honey:
And with a very … The thing that a lot of people think is if I go and live more, live more fully, than my work will suffer and professionally it will suffer, and actually, it’s completely the opposite. Because when you are energizing yourself in between and doing all the things you need to do to feel really excited and inspired and well rested and all of that, then actually you bring your A game to everything rather than when you get dragged down and run down and you’re bringing your C game to everything. So, that’s what we work on. And it’s so much fun. I absolutely love it. And it’s a massive privilege because I get to hear people’s real thoughts, their really deep conversations. They’re much more fun than that sounds, but they’re really real conversations.


Craig C:
And I would assume you also get to hear the successes and get to see the changes. So, they come back. And then you’re also the number one cheerleader after success.

Naomi Honey:
Exactly. That’s amazing. So, I’m the cheerleader while they’re doing it and while it’s difficult, and I’m the cheerleader when there’s success. And then, one of my absolute favorite moments. Coaching is designed to end at some point.

Craig C:
Right.

Naomi Honey:
It’s a win if people go, “Okay, I feel ready. I’m really happy with what I achieved and I feel ready to go it alone now. It’s like we’re both really sad that the relationship’s ending, but this is so wonderful.

Meet the team: Melissa

I love the educational aspect of Movers Mindset. Each podcast is an opportunity to learn about someone, how they think and how they move. I love learning about what each guests finds important and learning something new, whether its an idea or an approach, that I can apply to my own practice. The podcast has introduced me to many people and projects that have expanded my interests and understanding of movement.
