Are you ready to make some changes in your career?
I coach people who have reached a crossroads in their working life.
Clients often say their current career no longer holds the same meaning for them and they feel stuck.
Sometimes they are facing redundancy, a restructure or returning to work after having children. Many have been in professional roles and/or had successful careers so far and now want to regain balance or build confidence to do something more fulfilling.
Some have a dream but no plan, others have no idea what they want to do next – just not what they are doing now!
If any of this sounds like you, then career coaching will help you to make the changes you want.
How does Career Coaching help?
Deciding that you want a change can feel overwhelming, especially when you are trying to do it alone.
Having a career coach enables you to reflect, focus and re-gain control.
It stimulates your thinking, draws out your innate strengths and resourcefulness and provides you with the support you need to make decisions and plans.
I use the FireworkTM career programme which involves a series of thought provoking exercises and 1:1 coaching. It is split into 3 focus sections and step by step we work together to enable you to move from stuck and uncertain to having a clear vision about what you want and a realistic plan to make it happen it.
Typically, what to expect:
Part 1: you will gain a full understanding of your values, strengths, passions and all the things that make you tick. It is a bit like a working life MOT! Clients often enjoy this part of the process as it helps them to reconnect with the essence of who they are and what is important to them. It can also highlight what is currently missing in your working life. This vital insight will help you to evaluate your career options and answer the question “will doing xxxx help me to lead the life I want?”
Part 2: you will explore a range of ideas and career possibilities and then narrow it down to your preferred choice. This is a creative process with a focus on what interests and inspires you; what is your ideal working vision? What would you really love to be doing? For some people the change could be a significant new direction, for others it may be a subtle yet impactful shift.
Part 3: here you will work on bridging the gap between your currently reality and your new chosen direction. Clients usually find this a very pragmatic stage in the process; they are making decisions and starting to work out their next steps. Being supported by a coach will help you to galvanise your plans towards a working life that it right for you.
