I’m Kate Flory, founder of Kapow Coaching. Kapow Coaching was set up in 2002 primarily to deliver Co-Active Coaching and various coaching and leadership training, either solo or alongside other hand-picked specialist trainers. Kapow Coaching’s professionals also share a passion for coaching, developing, and inspiring others. Our joint expertise and training lie in areas of Co-Active Coaching, PQ Coaching, NLP, leadership, team dynamics, business management theory, positive coaching psychology along with other psychometric profiling tools.
Since starting, we’ve matured into an organisation that offers inner development via Coaching, Leadership and Mental Fitness. We believe our coaching, training, and creative consultancy solutions have an immediate and positive impact on individuals, teams, the organisations as well as the wider community.
Let me tell you how Kapow Coaching came about
My passion and interest in personal development and self-coaching started in my early 20’s – getting me out of some tricky situations from failed relationships, family disputes as well as illness. At a time when I felt I had nothing and no-one, I quickly realised I had myself, and that was enough. Teaching me early on that there’s always a solution – you just have to ask the right question and be willing to listen to the answer, whether you like it or not! I learned that you can do it on your own, but with a coach, you can get there faster, more lightly, and far deeper than you ever expected.
Difficulties in my life have taught me resilience, the power of inner belief, self-motivation, getting to really know myself, never giving up, and the power of choice. This is probably why Silver Lining, Inspiration, and Curiosity are still my guiding business and personal values.
I’m passionate about the impact coaching and coaching-based conversations have on people’s lives and souls. As a coach, I believe that everyone should experience coaching. I know that managers of people and projects can become curious and begin to have coach-based conversations at work to engage, motivate and provide a safe space for others to be themselves. For me, leadership starts with self, the Inner Leader, and that everyone is a leader, they just need to recognise their leadership positions at work and at home. Having a positive mental mindset is key to not only happiness and wellbeing, but also productivity and building better and healthier relationships.
