“Spiritual Intelligence is about remembering your own truest self, the person
you’ve always been. As you make your relationship with it stronger each day you
can keep the promise you made to restore this world and yourself to the awareness of love.
Through this Self-leadership we realise we are the ones we have been waiting for.”
~ Nick Williams and Sarah Alexander
Traditional approaches to coaching focus primarily on your personal wants, needs and goals and how to accomplish them. This approach certainly brings success to many and yet it relies purely on the power of the focused, logical mind to create results. It often exacts a high-price. Spiritual Intelligence adds further dimensions and a greater context to the coaching conversation. It also embraces the context of a higher purpose and invites questions such as:
- What are you being guided to be and do?
- What gifts, talents and abilities are waiting to emerge from you?
- What are you inspired to do?
- Where are you being called to grow and become more?
- What are you being guided to next?
- What contribution are you invited to make next?
- What fears and resistances are you being guided to grow beyond?
This approach adds the dimension of a higher and guiding intelligence working in tandem with our own mind and moves coaching into a more spiritually connected approach that encompasses people’s professional and personal life and their whole being.
In this foundation workshop, Sarah Alexander and Nick Williams will introduce you to the techniques they use in their coaching and mentoring of business owners and entrepreneurs which they call "Spiritual Intelligence."
“Quite simply tip top! Inspirational, practical and experiential. Great to come away with
many ways to improve the service I offer from the inside out. I really enjoyed it.”

Spiritual Intelligence is based on the concept of collaboration with clients and a mutual Higher Power. The value of this approach is that the situations and gifts that we then draw to us are totally in alignment with who we are as people, and are often far greater than what we ourselves had dared to imagine.
To coach in this way requires knowledge and a trust in the principles of Spiritual Intelligence. These principles are based on our connection, as coaches, to an energy force within us, which for some is our Higher Self or for others, our connection to Spirit. This energy force is constantly buiding us forward, evolving us as people and leading us to the art of effortless accomplishment in all our coaching relationships.
This inner energy can be used in our coaching sessions to guide all that we say and do as coaches. We can be open to the emergence of new possibilities. This means that our sessions really do give the client what is truly in alignment with their greatest good and gives them the clarity that they need to move forward and reveal their brilliance.
On this foundation workshop you will learn:
- The eight spiritual principles that underpin this approach to coaching.
- The five belief systems that you, or your clients may have that will limit Spiritual Intelligence.
- The difference between forcing things to happen and the feminine power of allowing.
- How to prepare for coaching sessions so you're in alignment with your Spiritual Intelligence.
- How to easily access this wisdom and intelligence from within through four distinct ways.
- How to hold a high, compassionate and non-judgemental space during your sessions
- How to lift the client above their current limiting thinking.
The day will include guided meditations to align you with this thinking and draw to you your future clients and business connections. We will also be practicing these techniques in this safe space so that you can gain familiarity with them. This workshop is open to coaches as well as those interested in using these methods in their own work capacity.
“Thank you for a great day. I am looking forward to joining you on the 4-day course.
I loved the guided meditation and the balance between input and
exercises. Brilliant day, thank you.”

Sarah Alexander is the author of Spiritual Intelligence in Business, a book which brings Eastern spiritual principles to the modern, Western business setting. Sarah currently coaches and mentors entrepreneurs and people from many different business settings to enable them to develop and grow both personally and professionally based on the spiritual principles set out in her book.
Sarah’s background is in the world of sports. For more than 15 years up until 2001, Sarah specialised in the training of both horse and rider for success in competitions. In 1989, she took over a small equestrian centre which was failing as an enterprise and in the first year turned it into a successful “top end” business, which remained successful throughout the time that Sarah was there. Sarah sold this business in 2001 just prior to the birth of her daughter. Since then, Sarah has gone on to coach top equestrian competitors and other sports professionals including those competing at international levels. Her success at improving client's performance with these techniques prompted her to take them into the corporate environment and create the same performance success there.
Over the years, Sarah has worked with clients from multi-nationals including Shell, Motorola, Citibank, Royal Bank of Scotland, Guinness, and Zurich and with senior partners from successful law firms. For 5 years she ran Leadership Development programmes for a multinational in the UK, Europe and the Far East.
"Overall", says Sarah, "I motivate people to use their innate talents and capabilities< so they can easily create their own success. My desire is always to inspire people to their own highest potential through connecting to their own inner wisdom and knowledge."
“An excellent introduction to a new way of thinking which balanced theory
with how to practically use it. Very useful for facilitation skills and for unblocking personal
resistance In general well prepared, time well managed and a good pace.
Very enjoyable - time and money well spent.”
