Career Success Coaching

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” 
 Steve Jobs

Need some help to get your career out of that rut and moving forward with success again?

Are you feeling unsettled in your current role, feeling like something needs to change, but not sure what?

Could it be that you feel ready to move on, or up, after a long time working for the same company, but are anxious that your skills won’t transfer to a new organisation?

Perhaps you’re considering making a total change in direction, something that will see you bouncing out of bed in the morning again?

Maybe with some career success already achieved, you’re weighing up your future options, realising you’ve still got twenty or more years of work ahead of you and starting to feel you need a totally new challenge…or a different, less stressful pace of life

Are you being looked over for promotion, with a resulting hit to your confidence, and wondering what you need to improve or change so you’re ready to go and get the step up that you want?

Or perhaps this is the very start of your career journey, and with no clear plan for your future you’re feeling anxious about what decisions to make that will leave you happy and successful and take you in a direction you’ll feel excited and proud of?

If any of these are you, your head is probably feeling something like a ball of tangled wool, your thoughts going round and round in circles as you try to work out what will get you unstuck and back onto a successful career path that feels fulfilling, and exciting, again. You might be weighing up some of the following:

  • Going for a promotion versus taking a sideways move that could gain you more experience
  • Moving to a new organisation to get a new challenge
  • Considering taking your skills and experience to start your own business
  • Making a complete career change, doing something totally different

In my experience, if you’re feeling stuck about which direction to take, the starting point is often to work out what success actually means for you. But even when you know what success would look like, there are some common obstacles that leave your thoughts as tightly tangled as ever, no matter how hard you work at it. These are the things I hear my clients say to me most often of all:

“I feel trapped by my salary. I can’t afford to earn less, and that’s limiting the options open to me”

“I’m unhappy but I’m afraid to take the risk of losing the security I’ve currently got”

“What if it goes wrong? I’ll have given up a good job for nothing and I’ll never be able to forgive myself for that”

“I’ve been with my current company so long I don’t know if I could actually even do it anywhere else…I’m scared I’m not as good as people here think I am”

Whatever the reason you’re at a career crossroads, career coaching with me will help you work through your options and get you over the barriers that are leaving you stuck where you are, so you move forward onto a new, more fulfilling path to success. I can help you:

  • Achieve specific targets and goals

Why choose career coaching with me?

Having taken a few sideways steps along the path to career success and been through a big career change myself, I can vouch for the fact that making career changes can be exciting and incredibly rewarding!

But I also know first-hand that working out which career destination to head for and how to get there isn’t always easy. After all, it’s one thing to say “I want to follow my passions”, it’s another to make sure you do it in a way that will also pay the bills and leave you time for your family and for yourself. And what if you don’t actually have a particular passion you want to follow?

All my career success coaching programmes are bespoke and unique to you and your needs – coaching with me is not a “one size fits all” experience. I’d love to work with you to design an inspiring and practical plan for your future career.
