On Saturday 7th March the Our People’s Coach Street Team came together for the first Coaching Flash Mob of 2015, our fourteenth event in total. The all-female team of coaches and change makers mingled with shoppers and visitors to the International Women’s Day Festival in Derby to share powerful conversations.
Event Managed by Angela Armstrong and powered by Divine Chocolate, the OPC Street Team worked courageously to impact 130 people, in just 10 minutes coaching interactions. The impact? We’ll let the feedback speak for itself…

No. of people connected with: 130
No. of coaching hours: 6.5
No. of coaches: 8
No. of assistants: 3

Just a sample of feedback from the 10 minute coaching sessions…

“I feel more grounded now than any time in my life. I feel that I really know where I’m going, my coach affirmed that for me.” Ken, retired, 65 years old

“Great because it was a real problem that had been worrying me for a while. Really helpful to talk to someone objective. 10 minutes made a difference.” Ellen, 29 years old

“10 minutes is not a lot but it’s motivating and makes you think. Sometimes you need a kick up the bum!” Norma, quality control, 61 years old

“Brilliant! I didn’t know what my passion was and it’s clearer now.” Raza, warehouse operator, 30 years old

“My coach was a very good listener and I confirmed the actions from my recent appraisal.” Viv, operations manager, 45 years old

“I’ve had a breakthrough on getting started. Only looking at the first step makes it obvious I can do it. Keeping this promise to me will help my self-esteem and get the ball rolling on losing more weight.” David, banking, 38 years old

“Being coached was really interesting and enjoyable it helped me get clarity and has motivated me to take action.” Ann , retired, 61 years old

“The coach put the tools in my hands and I saw other resources that are within reach. Now my goal feels more achievable.” Dominic, student, 30 years old

“It was really good. I’m ‘buzzing’ and really looking forward to achieving my goal.” Deborah, student, 21 years old
