Plan Your Career
Many of us work for over a third of our adult life, yet we don’t invest much time in reviewing our career to check if we are doing what we are best at, in a job we love. Planning your career is is all the more important in a workplace that experiences turbulence and unpredictability.
Smart decision-making and good career planning can serve to help you to manage yourself during this turbulence and seize career opportunities that come your way.
You can start by asking yourself these questions:
How do I explain my work to date? (understanding the career story)
Where I am now? (assess current values, skills, etc.)
What drives me? (identify career drivers and purpose)
What do I want? (prioritise needs and goals)
What holds me back from getting what I want? (barriers to change)
How do I get there? (self-marketing & action plans)
Arranging a career conversation with one of our highly trained and experienced career coaches can be a starting point for answering these questions. Invite us to work with you on unblocking the things that hold you back.

Conversational Intelligence ®
Conversations are the cornerstone to relationships. We’ve grown up with a narrow view of conversations, often focusing on the exchange of information and giving of our opinion. The reality is that conversations are dynamic, interactive and inclusive and we have the ability to open people up or close them down within 0.07 seconds, even before we’ve opened our mouth!
