Insightful, practical help at points of change

Are you between roles or organisations? Firstly, transitions are difficult. Career coaching can help you traverse the period of significant change. Without the right support, it can be lonely or challenging. If you have recently been made redundant or decided to leave where you are, then our career coaches can help. Alternatively, you might be returning to work after a career break and wondering about the possibilities ahead. Again, our career coaches can help you to ease back into work confidently.

In essence, everyone can benefit from career coaching at certain points, especially during these phases of increased uncertainty, anxiety and change. Everyone needs someone they can rely on to hear them out, be a sounding-board, care what it’s like for them and be a real ‘thinking-partner’ at their side. Generally speaking, we will:

  • Help you process what you are experiencing and navigate your way through of job-loss or role change
  • Prepare you for the up-and-coming challenges by creating time and space for overall reflection about your future options
  • Work with you to develop practical resources (CV, LinkedIn Profile, networking strategies, great interview answers, a positive new story) that in the long run enable you to communicate clearly and confidently
  • Support you on your journey through the uncertainties and help you move forwards towards the potentially exciting opportunities that are ahead

Our career coaches offer expert input during these critical periods of transition – coaching designed especially for you.

Career coaching for individuals

Whether you are looking to find a similar role to your last job or thinking about something new, we can help. Ultimately, transitioning from any role is challenging and searching for something new can feel just as daunting. You might feel stuck, or isolated. Most importantly, your next job needs to be right for you. You then need to be actively giving yourself the best chance of securing that new role when you find it.

Our career coaches will offer practical advice to best position you for this process. From creating a new CV, right through to interview practice, they will help put the best you forwards. Our coaching approach will also help you process this career opportunity and move forwards with confidence. If you feel you could benefit from time with our career coaches, contact us today

Our outplacement coaches are discreet, respectful and confidential. They will offer your people the best possible support as they move on. Outplacement coaching demonstrates a commitment to your people, even in the face of difficult circumstances. After all, that professional support can be vital in ensuring your people move on well.

Kintsugi, wabi-sabi, and why it’s fine to be imperfect

In Japanese ‘Kintsugi’ means to 'join with gold', an elegant and graceful way to mend broken pottery, leaving the mend fully visible and highlighting it with the precious metal. The pot shards are fused back together with gold, and the gilded cracks become part of the object's beauty.

Innovate or stagnate? Get ahead of the curve

In a fast-changing world it is important to stay open, and be aware that people who are the most responsive to change are those who survive, even thrive. Does that sound familiar?

About the process of transition – And how to handle it well

Everyone experiences transition at work. It can be as dramatic as a seismic shift in the outlook of the business or as basic as someone familiar leaving the firm, the loss of a loyal supporter. The key is to recognise a transition point when you reach one, and to handle it well.

Flattery and ingratiation – first cousin of manipulation?

How do you feel about being flattered? Most of us find it slightly uncomfortable, even though we're not always sure why it doesn't feel right. Praise and encouragement almost always feel real. Flattery and ingratiation tend to have a shallower edge, an undercurrent that isn't as positive as it might at first seem, a hidden agenda.
