Coaching Services

CAREER COACHING

In today’s ultra competitive job market there are few strategies that can make your career transition more effective. With my expertise in Recruitment and Career Coaching, I can help you find a new career path, develop a career progression strategy, clarify your career goals and aspirations and help you shed light on your key skills and areas of improvement.

EXECUTIVE COACHING

Executive Coaching will enhance your leadership skills, self-awareness, team management skills, and communication style. The process usually consists of a programme of 6-8 personalised sessions of approximately 1h30. The process will invariably expand and extend your thinking, with continuous challenge, clear goals and objectives where you become accountable  for your own development and improvement. It is not only a journey to self-development, but also a definite tool to increasing performance, and ultimately a feeling of fulfilment.

CAREER TRANSITION
Career Guidance Sessions focus on giving you the best possible strategy when going on a job hunt.  The sessions will help ease the process and get you where you want to be, faster and with less stress.  The guidance will help you plan adequately and efficiently your your job search. This usually takes 2-3 sessions where we agree on the level of support your need.
RETURN TO WORK COACHING

Returning to work after a break can be challenging. Following a career break, we often start with a negative mind-set. After, 4 or 5 sessions, you will a have a strategy of how to successfully return to work. For some individuals, looking to re-enter the workforce, a full-time, stable job with benefits is the only path back. For others, re-entry needs to involve part-time, home- or project-based work.

GRADUATE COACHING

Graduate coaching is the best way to ensure that graduates reach their true potential. I ensure that they get the right job, not just any job. The sessions will help you clarify the career you want and the steps you need to take to get there. This usually involves a combination of one-to-one coaching sessions, career guidance, and mentoring to start a successful professional life. 

Frequently Asked Questions

EXECUTIVE & CAREER COACHING

Coaching is a thought provoking technique based on the use of one-to-one conversations to enhance an individual’s skills, knowledge or work performance. Coaching objectives usually focus on specific skills and goals, although it may also have an impact on an individual’s personal attributes (such as emotional intelligence or confidence). It’s for people who wants more from their career and their personal life.

A session is done usually in person or via Video Call. Prior to the session, we would have agreed on your objectives, your priorities/values and what areas of your career/life you would like to focus on.

A typical session will normally comprise periods of self reflection coupled with learning key insights into how to reach your goals. The focus of the sessions is determined by the client. We then try to solve the problems by asking the important questions and give structure to your thoughts.

When taking on a larger goal, I help you design a project and provide the support and structure needed to make sure goals are met. I try to bring out the best in you by providing perspective, setting high expectations, offering strategies and celebrating wins.

A typical session last between 1h30 and 2h. . The process can take 6 to 12 months and consists of approximately 4-6 full sessions. I will also be always available for short conversations on the phone during the programme and for follow-ups after the sessions have ended.

Your Coaching process usually starts with a free consultation whereby we meet or talk on the phone and establish a road map with your goals, learning goals and a timeline. Through our initial discussion you can establish what your priorities/values are and what areas of your career/life you would like to focus on. I, then send you a proposal with structure of the coaching programme, the cost and timeline.

This can and does happen but it is up to you to talk about it with your employer before the coaching starts. Usually companies are happy to contribute to the development of the employees and help them truly thrive in the organisation.

All the material we discuss in the session is totally confidential unless we both agree that someone else needs to be informed at some stage.
