Career transitions can be exciting as well as scary. It may be your choice or the change may be forced upon you. Coaching gives you the space and to expand and explore your options and identify next steps. Coaching helps you achieve your goals. Discover new ideas and develop options to deliver business goals, reach your personal objectives, overcome your challenges or make sense of where you are and where you want to be. Create action plans and steps to move forwards and achieve your goals.
I specialise in Transition Coaching:
• leaders at all levels who have recently been promoted or hired into a more senior role be more effective more quickly
• career coaching for those who want to focus on, plan and manage their career, are at a crossroads, or who are considering a career change or for those re-entering the workplace.
The coaching I do is non-directive - you set the agenda about what to discuss and you come up with ideas and actions. Expect to be asked questions, offered feedback as well as support and challenge to help you be clear about what you want to work towards or achieve or change.
I also offer:
Coaching can be done in person, on the phone or using Skype.
