About Lisa Spencer-Arnell
Hello and thank you for visiting our site. As mum to Grace (10) and Jack (3), confidence and self esteem is a topic that’s very close to my heart.
I live in Nottingham and have 3 passions in life; people (I love spending time with my family and friends and my work developing leaders), football (I’m a big Nottingham Forest fan) and the next generation (I’d love all children to have great self esteem and really believe in themselves). It’s been an absolute pleasure working with these 24 talented children on the book “Confidence for Kids by Kids” and my hope is their confidence has grown as a result of it as well as the book making a difference to a lot of people’s lives.
It took me until I was in my 30s to pluck up the courage to ask what it would take to get a book published (I had been told and believed it was far too difficult, most book ideas get rejected etc). I was astounded to find out how easy it was and after an initial conversation with a publisher, I was commissioned along with two colleagues to write her first book: “Emotional Intelligence Coaching” (Published by Kogan Page & nominated for the Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year award 2009). I later published “Who Stole My Success” and my next book “Who’s Driving Your Life” will be out next year.
I set up my business CCS Coaching International twelve years ago. I work with individuals, teams and organisations to discover their ‘hidden treasure’ helping them connect to what’s important, challenging them to grow their self belief, be at their best more of the time and ultimately enable them to achieve their vision. My work involves Values, Leadership, Coaching, Emotional Intelligence and Work/Life balance initiatives. As I’m passionate about supporting the next generation to lead positive, happy, healthy and successful lives.
