The mission is to coach individuals to build the best career and financial capital they possibly can. It’s about developing your “personal economy” to make your life richer.
Simple as that.
The two worlds go hand in hand. Getting to grips with both provides a fuller picture of your true “net worth”.
And improving your skills, behaviours and mindset go a long way in helping you navigate the challenges we all currently face in a job market and personal finance picture that have experienced major disruption in the last decade.
Godfrey formed Spiritworth Consulting in Hong Kong to bridge interests in finance and personal development that were originally shaped growing up in the UK.
Comfortable coaching across industries, his particular strength in career coaching is working with individuals below C-suite level looking to change direction, seeking career advancement, or simply wanting greater meaning and clarity in their lives.
The process involves self-reflection, discussions on pressing issues and a roadmap to frame the way forward.
Sometimes all the coachees require is a good sounding board.
For financial coaching, the focus is on helping people think differently about their money.
Maybe they are too scared to talk about their money in public. Maybe they don’t have a clue on where to even start! The goal is to arm them with awareness, tools and a powerful framework to shape their financial independence, confidence and accountability. This is not about providing financial advice.
Because he grew up in a household where money was never spoken about, and where a lack of financial understanding had a significant impact on the quality of life, Godfrey appreciates the need for simplicity in explaining finance.
Godfrey worked in private banking as a stock advisor and investment analyst in the UK, the US and Asia. He has a Master of Finance (MFin) from Curtin University, Australia, and is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) Level 2 candidate.
Having previously attended personal development programmes created by the likes of Tony Robbins and Robert Kiyosaki, Godfrey was inspired to earn an Executive Diploma in Corporate Coaching from the University of Hong Kong. This has led him to provide executive, career and life coaching services since 2009.
He is a professional member of the Hong Kong International Coaching Community (HKICC).
