The Future of Work which is already here will require us to keep reinventing ourselves in our work and career. According to the Guardian, Career paths are becoming fluid, with many following a zigzag rather than a straight path. The world is less predictable than it was in the industrial age, so you stay relevant by acquiring a portfolio of transferable skills
A McKinsey study says, the future of work is one with different kinds of transitions. Each kind of transition has implications on how people view and shape their work, continuously re-skill and re-invent themselves, and the impact of this on them -psychologically, physically and professionally. All of us will need to learn how to navigate multiple aspects of career transitions – professional and emotional and that’s what we are here to help you with.
The Career Transition Coaching process is a completely confidential 1-1 coaching paced over 4 months. This includes 6 online coaching sessions of 90 min each with our coaches (KAVITA NEELAKANTAN or NEERU GUPTA) who will coach you through the B-R-I-D-G-E process. These sessions will be scheduled according to mutual convenience, typically at an interval of 2-3 weeks between sessions. You will also be sent reflective exercises, readings and assigned other mini projects to do between the coaching sessions – these will be custom designed according to your needs and reviewed over email/phone between sessions as well.
The coaching also includes psychometric tools to help you understand career interests/interpersonal behaviours, review of your career search process until now and what needs to change and ongoing support over email and phone as you distil your career into marketable stories that stand out.
As I worked through my transition, the sessions with Kavita helped in several ways - holding the space and helping me understand that many of the emotions I was feeling were par for the course, helping me reflect and look at the issue in new and different ways that went around some of my own blocks, and also opening myself to new possibilities and breaking out of old patterns of behaviour. All of this was grounded in getting to know myself better through the sessions and through specific tools that Kavita brought to the work. Within a few sessions, I had far greater clarity on the path ahead.
The coaching helped me uncover a few hidden problems which were making my career transition complicated. I was able to see clearly where my interest lies and identify what I could do to pursue those interests. I also benefited from having a clear strategy to reach out to my mentors and ask for support. I am happy to say that the coaching process enabled me to make a shift in my career change process and move to a new role within 3 months.
