G'day! I'm Bernard Kates, from NSW, Australia. I'm a practicing Life Coach and Mentor both
to aspiring Life Coaches and to people in many and various executive roles who
are working on their own personal and professional development so as to become
effective, transformational leaders.
I bring a wealth of life
experience to my practice and I believe that through empowerment comes
responsibility – responsibility to live authentically, to live with empathy and
non-judgement towards others, to continue to develop ourselves both personally
and professionally, to spread this way of life to the world at large and to
never miss an opportunity to help those who need it.
I've moved countries three times,
moved house fifteen times, changed jobs more times than I've had hot dinners
and I'm currently on my seventh career (but who's counting). I'm 21 years old (with 40-something years of
experience) and I believe that although change is scary the alternative is
stagnation. There are almost always more
opportunities than threats arising from change if one embraces it with a
positive attitude and a determination to make the best of whatever situation
one finds oneself in.
