We will design a coaching programme that meets your specific needs, or those of your organisation. Below are some examples of the most popular options chosen by our clients as a guide. If you would like more information on how these work feel free to contact us.
Most of our coaching is conducted in person in central London but we are happy to travel and coaching via email, telephone and Skype are also popular options with our international and US clients.
Career clarity intensive
Many of my clients find that after several years in a job they are not as fulfilled in as they would like to be. They may feel unchallenged, frustrated at a lack of progress or even wondering if they are in the right career at all!
Many people who feel this way simply jump ship, taking the first new opportunity that comes along and sadly they often find themselves in the same boat 6 months later. If you are feeling this way the best thing you can do is to stop, take stock of where you are and plan your next step carefully.
The career clarity intensive does just this and takes clients from confusion to clarity in just 4 hours. Following our proven process our clients tell us that taking this time out to reflect on what they truly want from their career and to plan how to get it, has been the first valuable step in achieving their ambitions.
Overview of Career Clarity
- Pre-session self reflection
This bespoke workbook will help you explore your career history, successes , strengths and identify areas where you want to improve. Completed in your own time ahead of the session, this gives us a head start, gets you focused on your values, motivations and what really matters to you. It will also encourage you to delve into what you really enjoy doing at work and help you understand why. This gives us a huge amount of information to use as a basis in the intensive coaching session.
- 1/2 day intensive career clarity coaching session
Held at a convenient private venue in central London, this session goes even deeper.
At the end of it you’ll:
- have a clear idea of what drives and motivates you
- know what you want to achieve in your career and your short, medium and long term goals
- understand your strengths and areas where you’d like to grow
- know what resources and skills you have and what expertise you
- have clarity on your “perfect job” to use as a base for your future decisions and for you to refer to when opportunities come up
- have a map of the first steps of a practical strategy that you can start on straight away to achieve your career ambitions.
- 2 x 60min skype or in person coaching sessions
In addition to your session, these will be scheduled as desired by you and can be taken at any time within 3 months. These are there to support you, keep you on track, provide attentional resources and to work on anything that may crop up as you progress towards your career ambitions. This time can also be used to optimise your CV or LinkedIn profile and prepare for interviews if needed.
6 month executive coaching programme
Structured with an initial 90 minute meeting followed by 10 sessions of 90 minutes each, this programme is designed completely around you. During the sessions we will refine your aspirations into clear goals and develop a plan to achieve them. The frequency of sessions is dictated by your specific circumstances, usually fortnightly with e-mail and telephone support also provided in between sessions.
Benefits : The structure of this programme allows you to implement changes and see real progress towards your goals in between sessions. This provides you with plenty of time to reflect, practice new thought processes and refine what you want to achieve. Clients tell us that the process of agreeing upon a course of action, completing it successfully and reporting back at the next session is the ideal motivation. This tends to be the most popular programme as it works for all kinds of challenges faced by executives, from “How can I achieve promotion?”, “How do I strengthen my leadership skills?” and “How do I improve my professional impact and influence?” to “How can I achieve a better work / life balance?”.
12 Month VIP coaching packages
Provided over a longer period, these start with a professional strategy day to achieve clarity of your goals and quickly focus you on your chosen path. We then continue with fortnightly, 60 minute, one-to-one coaching sessions to assess your progress, refine your goals, develop new action plans and learn and develop new techniques and skills.
In this programme we will help you define your aspirations for your career, leadership style, health and life balance and develop a plan to achieve them. we will then provide you with motivation, stability and support through the critical first 6 months, giving you a much better chance of achieving your goals.
Benefits : This is the ultimate in coaching support with truly embedded learning and hands on support. Combining an intensive start to achieve clarity and focus, we will then meet in person to continually reflect, review and revise in order to improve your skills, grow your confidence in using them and progress you to achieve your goal. For anyone thinking of implementing significant lifestyle changes, this is the ideal choice. A major career change, promotion to a leadership position, or relocation to the UK from abroad are prime examples of when this kind of support will help you achieve everything you want to.
