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

It has been a real pleasure attending the sessions with you. The sessions were very insightful and you’ve been amazing. Thank you for helping validate the decisions I have made re next steps forward for my career.

Vikashni
Whatever happens, I’m feeling so much more positive and excited about the future, which is something I haven’t felt in a long time. Thank you so much for your help.
Anna , PhD

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.

Kylie, Operations Manager
Thanks for your expert guidance and patience working with me to develop a plan for the next stage of my life.
I now feel that I have more clarity with my goals and a realistic programme to achieve those goals.
Your achievements with me are an inspiration.

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.
