Driven to Coach
Danny grew up on the northern beaches of Sydney, Australia. A sports fanatic, trialing his hand at soccer, cricket, basketball, golf, rugby league and rugby union, he never hit the heights of stardom, nor ever looked like becoming a professional sportsman. However, at a young age found a passion in developing the potential in others on and off the sporting field.
In serving others so they feel significant, he offers the tools that encourage happiness and give value to people’s lives. Why, so they may experience success and fulfillment. When you are happy and fulfilled, it replicates in your relationships with teammates, friends, family and most importantly, yourself.
After retiring from rugby league and cricket in his late twenties Danny experienced a loss he had never felt before. An emptiness which he couldn’t quite comprehend. For the previous 20 odd years, he had belonged to a tribe, a team, a second family. Unlike his parents and siblings, these tribes were not expected to love him, they did so because of the camaraderie found on the sporting field.
Danny spent the next 10 years looking to fill that void. Drifting in and out of depression. Consistently feeling like a failure. Changing job to job, failing business idea after business idea. With no kids of his own, life was left meaningless. That is until he was introduced to strengths coaching.
Dan explains, “My Strengths coach helped me understand my strengths. She showed me how I could become comfortable with being me. I was given a language to describe myself and explain what made me great. I spent a lot of my 20’s and 30’s believing I was defined by the sport I played and the teammates I hung around. We finished playing and they all went off and got married, had kids and had careers to fall back on. I felt like I had nothing, I felt like a failure.
I found strengths coaching and it gave me a reason to battle through my depression. My mission is to ensure others don’t go through the same emotional and psychological cycles I went through.”
