The WHOLE News - September 2017
If you’d ever been sick, whether it was something dramatic like stroke or something as ordinary as the flu, you have probably found yourself wondering why this illness assailed you and how you can recover more quickly.
A few days ago I interviewed Clare Coffield, a Leadership Specialist and Empowerment Coach who experienced a stroke literally as she was speaking to an audience and writing on the whiteboard. She finished her presentation, sat down, and her body collapsed down one side.
Clare was rushed to hospital where they found she had had a near-fatal brain bleed. In the months that followed, she wondered what had caused this episode and came up with some very pertinent answers that will probably resonate with you too – which is why I wanted to interview her.
She also had an insight as she observed how she interacted with her grandchildren that had a significant effect on the speed of her recovery. The key word is ‘kindness’.
