Careers

Coaching for career development
Ambitions for today, aspirations for tomorrow
I work with people in positions of responsibility, which comes with a lot of demands.

You are ambitious, so I help you not only to excel at what you're doing now, but also upgrade and prepare for a bigger future.
The word 'career' means 'path'
The path in front of you emerges as you travel

I often find myself quoting this saying to clients:

'A journey of 20 miles can be accomplished in thick fog, where you can only see one yard in front of you.'

The challenge is that the next yard only comes into view as you traverse the yard before it. Standing where you are, no matter how long you remain here, will not reveal what you're seeking.

It is human to wish that we could see the entire path ahead of us. It is human to have to travel with only a limited view ahead. On the plus side, this limitation keeps the adventure exciting.
Beyond training

Research into work-place training has shown that it is often insufficient to support people in mastering new skills while keeping all the balls in the air.

Beyond 20th century-style Career Advice
If you've encountered traditional 20C-style Career Advice and been disappointed, there is a simple explanation.

Modern scholarship on the history of career guidance has concluded that the entire outlook in the 20th century was based on *fitting you into the categories as the workplace saw them.*

Some occupation-choice questionnaires are still based on requirements of the employers, not on what is helpful to an individual for plotting their trajectory.

Modern Career Guidance reverses this, so that the entire process is based on you, your strenghts, your priorities, your concerns.
Coaching turned out to be exactly what I needed
Careers in the 21st century
Modern career guidance has evolved to assist you as an individual to plot your path taking into account everything that is important to you. Gone are the days of trying to pigeonhole you for a rough-and-ready fit that doesn't set you up for the long-term.

You may have already done some of the work in Phase 1: Know Yourself (although this is a never-ending task, as there is always more to discover). Or you may have found that getting all the elements that matter to you to line up is tricky enough already.

Whichever phase you're in, and whatever the type of obstacles you're encountering, coaching can help you find a path beyond the obstacles and keep you moving forward.
DETERMINE YOUR DIRECTION

Some people wake up at the age of 11 with complete clarity on what they want to do professionally. For others, it is a process of discovery.

It is common to struggle to choose a direction, because there are so many factors to consider. If you've been finding the task of determining the professional direction for the next phase of your career lurking on your horizon, help is at hand.
Crisis or opporunity?
Every momentous decision feels like a turning-point, with the pressure of success or failure in the balance
WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH MY LIFE?
School leaver
After years of being told what to do during your school years, you are suddenly asked to make a major decision "that will impact the rest of your life."

Guidance/expectations from the family tend to play a large part at this stage. Did you leave something aside for the sake of being 'sensible'?
WHERE CAN I GO FROM HERE?
Graduate
Some degrees will have already set you on a specific professional path. Most degrees leave some room for manoevre.

Fewer people than you might imagine access career guidance/advice at this stage. Some have a vision, some just find their way as they go.
THERE MUST BE MORE TO LIFE THAN THIS
Career Review
You are finally mature enough to know that you want to do this right, and that getting proper professional support can make the world of difference.

Most of the people I work with on career-related topics are proper grown-ups who have to take many factors into account to make sound - and inspired - decisions.
Nobody knows better for you than you
I do not provide career advice. Instead, I coach you through the process of mapping out everything in play for you, so that you arrive at the right decision for you.

Each stage of the exploration is approached as a structured process, with the results of one stage becoming the foundation for the next.

It is amazing how far and how fast you can travel one clear step at a time.
'YOUR FUTURE CALLING' course
I also run a 6-session group coaching course 'Your Future Calling', which takes you through a programme of clearly defined steps to identify your next career direction.
Make sure that you bestow *your unique gifts*
The legacy you want to leave behind
THE CLUES WERE THERE ALL ALONG
What were you into as a youngster?
Your young years contain many clues to your unique combination of interests and aptitudes. Revisiting the history of your aspirations can prove a fertile endeavour.
WHERE CAN I GO FROM HERE?
Even without a plan, you will have been gathering rich experience along the way
Gathering together all the skills, knowledge areas and personal strenghts
