For Those Struggling with Drift and Confusion About Their Futures
What I Do
Foresight Coaching isn’t so much a system as an approach to reclaiming control over the future. Your future.
It applies the latest research from psychology in helping you understand the challenges of thinking about what lies ahead and shifting your mindset to embrace the uncertainty. It then adopts the tools of foresight to explore the future, set a direction and take action.
I work under the principle that the future may not be pretty, but only by embracing it can we maximise our control over how it treats us. I aim to regenerate, rejuvenate and revitalize those I work with.
I’m going to challenge you, I’m going to push you. You won’t get anywhere by retracing the paths you have already taken. I will use various techniques to expand your imagination, get clarity on the possibilities, and become resolute in your desire to achieve them.
There is no formula – what I do is completely tailored to you.
Career Clarity Challenge
1. Signals of Significance
What’s important to you? For many people, the answer doesn’t come easily.
2. Find Your Edge
It’s easy to focus on trying to fix “development areas,” but what if you focused on your strengths?
3. Feel Your Future
This is the fun part. And the most difficult, because it’s where you stare down uncertainty.
4. Work Backwards
Just visualising a future won’t make it happen – you need to plan to overcome the challenges.
5. Commit and Accomplish
Where the rubber meets the road. Developing a sense of conviction to make the right decisions.
If we work together, I’ll invest 100% in you. You’ll get a 24/7 partner in your success. Make no mistake – I’m not going hold your hand or carry you to your objectives. My clients walk on their own two feet. But what I will give you is honesty, authenticity and straight talking supported by the latest in foresight and psychology research.
You’ll get clarity, direction, action. No ifs, no buts.

DOES IT WORK?
My clients say it does.
Here are a couple of examples:
“The single biggest benefit of working with Graham was getting to know myself better, so I could figure out where I was, what I needed to do, and the plan to make it happen. It’s a big thing.”

“Graham quickly helped me understand what strengths I could play to and what sorts of things I might find harder. I wouldn’t have been able to achieve some of my personal goals without him.”

HOW MUCH TIME WILL IT TAKE?
The first 30 days are intense, because I’m assuming you don’t want to wait around. There are six sessions.
You will have a 1.5-hour session with me every 5 days (including at weekends if necessary). In between, you will be researching and reflecting in a structured way on the previous session and preparing for the next one. This might take 2-4 hours per session.
The total time in the first month, therefore, could be 20-30 hours. After that the intensity really depends on you – how fast do you want your future to change?
WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT FORESIGHT COACHING COMPARED WITH OTHER TYPES OF COACHING?
Most coaching assumes you have some idea about what you want from the future. I assume you have no idea.
That’s why I take tools from the world of strategic foresight and apply them to the psychological principles relevant to thinking about the future. This makes it possible to imagine futures you’ve never considered before and plan for them in ways that connect to reality of the present.
The way you think about the future is central to what you make of it.
WHAT KIND OF GUARANTEES CAN YOU GIVE ME?
If you’re not happy at any point, I’ll give you your money back. As someone comfortable with uncertainty, I’m more than happy to take risks, including that our relationship doesn’t work out. The way I manage that risk is through our 45-minute strategy call before we start.
CAN I JUST PAY AND START?
Glad to see you’re keen to recreate your future. But that doesn’t necessarily mean I’m the right person to help you get there. Time is important to both of us, so that’s why I talk with all potential clients before engaging them in any of my programs.
