About Self Determined Life

martin-cole-lawyer-coachHi I’m Martin Cole

I’m a British born lawyer and coach, currently living in Australia.

I have experience of leading professional teams in financial services regulatory and compliance environments, as well as teaching at post-graduate level.

I am a professionally certified organisational and executive coach and have a Masters (M.Sc.) in Coaching Psychology from the University of Sydney.

My mission with the Self Determined Life is to help smart professionals increase their confidence and improve their work performance so that they can achieve the career success they deserve.

This involves focusing on the whole person, not just the professional one. So with my writing, coaching, teaching and training, I promote evidence-backed strategies for transformational leadership, professional and personal development.
