Why Emperor Coaching?
I had lots of thoughts and discussions about what to call the business, but walking along beside the sea on my annual girls trip to Tenerife my friend and I were discussing names, she suggested that I should choose something with a play on my nickname – Penguin – and then suggested Emperor Coaching, and it just felt right!
The more I researched the name, the more it made sense. Emperor Penguins are one of the most resilient mammals in the world they work in a team in extreme temperatures to ensure the survival of as many as they can. As a defence against the cold, a colony of emperor penguins forms a compact huddle ranging in size from ten to several hundred birds, with each bird leaning forward on a neighbour. As the wind chill is the least severe in the centre of the colony, all the juveniles are usually huddled there. Those on the outside up wind shuffle slowly around the edge of the formation and add themselves to its leeward edge, producing a slow churning action, and giving each bird a turn on the inside and on the outside.
These attributes encompass two keys themes I encounter during coaching, the need to be resilient and building high performing teams.
The name also resonates with me, whilst thinking of the Hans Christian Anderson story of the “Emperor’s New Clothes”. The moral to be authentic and speak up when you know the truth.
I also love the simplicity of the branding, black and white with a splash of yellow! And that’s the story of how Emperor Coaching was hatched.
