How talking with a career coach can help:

If your work is impacting the quality of your life, and you are not doing the things that matter to you, it might be time to review your career. Compromising life for work that is not satisfying is unsustainable. A career specialist will help you to make a decision or create a plan towards living your best life.

Equally situations such as uncertain or insecure work, struggling to find the right job, unhappiness in the workplace, or feeling stuck and unable to see a way forward, can impact life negatively. Usually, people find sorting through the myriad of concerns and influences on their own is difficult and invariably causes stress.

So let us help.

Talking to a qualified career coach will help you work through all aspects of the situation and give you strategies and tools to make the change that will give you the life and the job satisfaction you wish for.

Individual Career Coaching –  Career Development, Planning, Decision-making and Guidance

CareerEQ consultants will help you to evaluate, re-align, and navigate your work situation to achieve greater levels of congruence and career success. With your career specialist, you will evaluate your employment situation, explore skills, personality traits, aptitudes, values, interests, and aspirations to clarify or confirm your career direction, goals, and objectives. Career Coaching helps to increase self-awareness, affirms your career identity, and helps you to negotiate change. It can make a real difference to your work transition and job satisfaction.

Career Coaching sessions are tailored to suit each individual. Working with your coach you will determine the outcomes you want from the process. 3–6 one-hour sessions are normally required. Sessions are structured to form a well–rounded and outcome-orientated process.

Career Downsizing – the pathway to retirement

Downsizing our careers is necessary as we get older. The transition from being a valued contributor at work to full retirement  is best managed gradually and consciously. We need to plan for it whilst also managing well at work. A successful transition to retirement can take many years involving stages of downsizing towards the lifestyle we want for ourselves. If you are looking to work out how best to make the transition career transition coaching is truly valuable. It will help you to re-envisage your next stage of life and to identify the steps and conversations you need to make in order for that to happen well. You will work with an experienced consultant who understands the nature of managing work transitions and wellbeing later in life.

3 one – hour sessions are recommended.

The sessions include:-

  • Identifying the career journey and how that has shaped you
  • Clarification or establishment of your life values
  • An exploration of what motivates you now, the possible areas or activities of interest you may transition to.
  • Objective setting, planning the steps needed now and into the future.
  • Perhaps reshaping your CV and job application approach to target part time work.

Transition Mentoring

When people move into new roles and increased responsibilities they typically experience a major and sometimes unnerving adjustment. Mentoring support during the first 4-6 months significantly enhances adjustment success. Self-awareness is improved and older habitual adjustment behaviours dispelled. e.g. Overworking, low confidence, relationship conflict.

Having highly confidential, one on one support empowers the participant to adjust gradually, enhance performance and develop productive relationships quickly.

Coaching Feedback

Suzanne helped me to tell the story of me, to uncover my passion and experience, and see where I can provide value to a future employer. I gained confidence in my abilities and worked out what I really wanted and needed in my next role. I believe that being able to fully articulate this in my CV and interviews landed me my dream job. Thanks so much Suzanne!

Emily, HR

I wanted to email you to thank you for your services and although I didn’t end up in the Diversity & Inclusion environment this time, I will be working on this in my new role and made that known to my new employer.

It was a very valuable process and I learnt to champion my wins, skills and experiences in a much more confident way. It allowed me to look inward and self reflect and ultimately set me up for the interview process in which I was able to gain 3 job offers.

Why CareerEQ Consultants are good at what they do

Organisations and individuals who seek out career coaching services come to us with a very different set of challenges than they did 5 years ago. People are now dealing with enormous amounts of complexity.

A well qualified and experienced career coach (such as our CareerEQ coaches) should work with individuals in an empowering way to enable greater levels of self-awareness and career confidence needed for coping and responding to the challenges people face now. CareerEQ coaches have following qualities:-

  • an ‘authentic’ approach and will tell you whether their process and experience can help you/your employee to meet your objectives

  • show a strong understanding of the world of work experience yet have a ‘holistic’ or ‘whole-person’ approach

  • facilitation skills to stimulate your ‘storytelling’ with reflective listening to pick up on themes and context dynamics from those stories

  • experience and knowledge that will open up worlds of possibility for you – appropriate to your field

  • have an ability to ‘facilitate’ or ‘enable’ your understanding rather than ‘telling’ or ‘advising’ too much

Best of all, we love it that people who have used our services recommend us to their friends. Clearly they have valued the work we have done with them. Trusted guidance, good technical abilities ( including understanding the job market) and intelligent communication are qualities that have served us well.
