Coaching

Chris Murphy · 27 July, 2021

Have you reached a plateau in your career? Are you hungry for a new challenge? Have you lost the spark that propelled you towards design in the first place?

I can help you.

As a designer, I know what it's like to face the abyss wondering: Am I good enough? I also know the critical role a coach plays in advancing your career, which is why I have a coach myself.

A good coach helps you to step outside yourself and see the world a little more clearly, they also enable you to establish goals and stick to them.

Apparently this photograph isn't what one should use to sell. Why? Because I'm not looking you in the eye. F__k that. I am who I am and I think this photo is very me (because I have a smile on my face), so until I get my son over to take more photographs: This is me.

Testimonials

The results of my coaching are incredibly inspiring to me, but I’m naturally a little biased. Here are testimonials from people I've worked with:

Chris helped me bring my portfolio to life. I can't thank him enough for driving me forwards, holding me accountable and helping me focus on the areas I needed to focus on. Without his help I couldn’t have done this. —Tom, Nottingham

A day with Chris is like a semester in university, he provides an abundance of knowledge and inspiration. I wouldn’t have achieved what I have without his support and the accountability he provides. —Stephen, Belfast

Chris's 'secret sauce' is that he's been through everything he coaches. Add in his strong focus on holding individuals accountable, and he’ll help accelerate you in ways you won't believe. —Al, Seaford

I can help you.

As a coach, I'll serve as an accountability partner and sounding board, enabling you to:

  • establish specific career or business goals;
  • identify and amplify an idea for a digital product;
  • develop ideas on product market fit;
  • define a plan that will help you to level-up, for now and for life; and
  • help you focus and deliver on your goals.

I’ve been mentoring and coaching designers for over two decades and I'll help you to define career-changing goals and dramatically increase your ability to deliver on those goals.

How our coaching works.

The School of Design’s coaching programme focuses on weekly, fortnightly then monthly goal-setting and check-in sessions that enable you to make small, sustainable changes that support you on your journey.

It is affordable and we offer payment plans.

I’ll serve as an accountability partner to help you work through challenges and barriers to your success. I’ll also help determine what practices can best support you on your individual path.

During our meetings – which are a cross between coaching, mentoring and tutorials at an art school – I’ll enable you to establish career, business and product goals and help you stay accountable to those goals.

I'll also provide you with access to tools I've used with Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 companies, helping them to grow their businesses. This is a short, sharp intervention that will enable you to refocus your career, or establish a new, future direction.
