Are you ready for the technological revolution? Do your skills stand the test of time? Maybe you have noticed that there are less jobs in the field that you work in, or perhaps you want to change careers but you can't seem to progress in the direction that you want to go into. Maybe talking to your family and friends creates new possibilities or alternatively reduces your options, resulting in you finding it harder to make a decision.
It never ceases to amaze me that whilst some individuals are willing to pay for expensive cars, phones or clothes - they consider investing in themselves for their employability a luxury! The amount of time we spend working in our lives: surely it is worth knowing where we want to be in our career and how to get there. By investing in yourself you will appreciate how delicate the fit is between us and the work that we choose to do. This understanding of how we fit into the workplace supports you in making confident work decisions.
Together we will review your: work history, education, strengths, accomplishments, problem areas, skills, values, motivations and goals. I can also offer career assessments. We can then explore and examine career possibilities based on 'you'. Together we will create a targeted plan to move to you forwards.
Take a look at your programme of study below.
'Self-analysis' is the key to finding happiness in the workplace or your career. The Explore part of the programme provides you with the tools (this will include psychometric testing) to understand yourself in a work/careers/life context.
Once you understand yourself e.g. what your values are, what are your strengths, which skills you prefer to use, your personality profile in relation to the world of work, what motivates and drives you... you will then know what you need to have in your career or job in order to be satisfied in the future.
This part of the programme will consist four hours coaching and it includes 10 exercises alongside the coaching. You will have an electronic workbook to record your responses. This will enable you to review your coaching responses. £200
Outcome - You will understand 'who you are' this knowledge could have a huge impact on your work happiness and success.
By the end of the Dream section you will be able to visualise what you are looking for in an ideal job or career. This will be completed predominantly through the coaching process and this usually takes two sessions. There will be 3 exercises to complete alongside the coaching and the findings will be cross referenced with your self-analysis from the Explore part of the programme above. You will be able to complete the more of the electronic workbook to record your coaching responses. £100
Outcome - You will understand - what careers & opportunities are suited to you and your personal commitments.
People who are 'self-aware' and can 'visualise' where they want to be are generally more successful at achieving their ambitions.

By the end of the Discover programme you will be able to outline your steps to work towards your dream career or job. This will take approximately two sessions with additional support materials for you to complete outside of the session, enabling you to complete the final part of your electronic workbook to record your coaching responses. £100
Outcome - You will have a plan with action steps for you to work towards your desired career.

'The course has helped me clarify my thinking and my career direction. I have now taken the steps to start my new career knowing why I am doing it and where it will lead me to. However, the most important part for me was the self-awareness knowledge, I can now assess any possible opportunity and whether it will suit me.' Nikki

I have twenty years' employability and career coaching experience.
Although I can coach all different clients, I am particularly interested in coaching women who are returning to work after a break or having children. For some, the complexities of practical arrangements alongside finding work that they are interested in can be quite a tricky process. It is a period of transition which sometimes needs an external person to help them through this period of change.
