Key Areas we cover in your Career Coaching journey…

There’s a balance to be struck between structure and working with where you are at in this moment in your life.

Below are some of the tools that are used in my Career Coaching programmes. I coach and support the whole person and work with what you bring. We will co-create the space to ensure you are receiving as much value as possible from every minute of every session.

This is your time! Your time to understand yourself; to evolve and to unlock your future.

01: Why are you here?

First, we take time to understand where you’re at.

Some people come to coaching because they are completely lost or stuck.

Others know where they want to go but need help navigating to their dream destination.

Together we explore what success will look like for you and where you want to be.

02: Strengths & Weaknesses

It’s impossible to optimise your career unless you know your strengths.

Most people take their strengths for granted, they miss or overlook what they are innately good at and focus on what it is they are not good at, what a waste.

Whilst we will explore your weaknesses and look to understand them, we will primarily work towards harnessing your strengths and turn them into your superpower and USP (unique selling proposition).

03: Values

Your values are the things that you believe are important in the way you live and work.

They determine your priorities and, deep down, they are probably the measures you use to tell if your life is turning out the way you want it to.

When the things that you do and the way you behave match your values, life is in flow and aligned, creating peace of mind and happiness.

Values should be at the core of every action.

04: Stress drivers

As we know, the way we were brought up has a big bearing on how we lead our lives today.

Awareness of your Stress Drivers helps you take actions to negate them and therefore reduce stress. Ultimately we’ll help you turn them into effective motivation drivers.

This session will help you see why you clash with other people and their working style. And help you figure out what type of people you need to work along side.

05: Vision

This is where we start to bring it all together.

What good is knowing your Strengths, Values, Drivers if you aren’t capitalising on them? Together, we’ll design a path that puts your new self-knowledge at the centre of everything you do.

In this session, we’ll dream big! But, we’ll also use aspects of your past to help us model your future.

06: Barriers

What’s going to get in your way?

Unfortunately, life isn’t always smooth sailing. It would be remiss of us not to look at the potential obstacles and devise tactics to mitigate them.

Obstacles might include lack of money for training or low self esteem or minimal free time or a strong inner critic.

Creativity can be key, as are the many tools I have to support this work.

07: Habits

Too often, we convince ourselves that massive success requires massive action.

Changes that seem small and unimportant at first will compound into remarkable results.

We will start to understand how you can live your best life, by dissolving negative habits that don’t serve you, and create new habits that will lead you to success!

This is about being holistic, creating work-life balance and designing the week you want to repeat.

08: Next steps

There will be actions emerging from every session.

By this point, you will know who you are, what you’re great at, who you want to work alongside and what problem you want to (help) solve.

You will know where you’re heading and how to manage the inevitable obstacles that will threaten to block your path.

You will be feeling more confident, more in balance and have greater peace of mind.

Transform your career with expert Career Coaching

Investing in ourselves can be tricky. Sometimes we think we don’t have the funds or the time. Sometimes we think we ‘know it all’ and don’t need the help or support. But in reality, most of us are in our own heads. And when we are in our heads, we attach to our ‘thoughts’, making them ‘problems’, resulting in stress or anxiety. Learning to take action from a conscious place is more powerful than acting from the unconscious.

When we truly start to invest in ourselves and in our evolution, then it has a ripple effect on other key areas in our lives.

  • Career Coaching builds confidence.

  • Career Coaching helps you grow and develop.

  • Career Coaching delivers peace of mind.

  • Career Coaching helps you wake up to your life.

When we unpack where you are at and dive into where and why you are stuck, we will find flow and give balance back to your life. Understanding and celebrating who you are is key to your success!
