Unleashed Coaching Retreats and Mindful Listening – Angela Watson
The MIndful Listening Retreat

I am a dog owner and leadership coach, dedicated to the mission of:

Developing leaders and their teams

Thrown in at the deep end, leaders are taken out of their businesses and put in a field with one of my boisterous, strong willed Golden Retrievers, and asked to complete a task, by honing their senses and listening to their natural instincts.

Some leaders will be successful and some might struggle. Some will be uncomfortable and some will excel. Some may need additional support, and some will want to ‘tell’ and ‘reason’ with the dog without considering the best way to communicate. But that’s okay – because there’s learning in everything.

What people say...

Angela is wise, experienced and inspirational. She not only teaches her craft meticulously but provokes her clients to exceed their personal boundaries, to gain deeper insights, broaden their horizons and gain greater self-awareness.

I had an extremely surreal experience during a meeting when I decided to be myself, align myself with what’s important to me…and the whole atmosphere of the meeting changed like magic. We spent a lot of time talking about values not just business, it was a more relaxed atmosphere and I got great feedback….you’re a genius!

“Angela is an excellent coach, mentor and facilitator. She demonstrates passion for what she does; and uses a blend of  coaching methods that really work. Angela is warm, encouraging and patient. I would recommend her to anyone seeking the guidance of a highly competent and professional expert in this field”

If you’d told me that day that I’d learn so much from a dog, I’m not sure I’d have believed you. It was invaluable learning I still use 2 years on.
