Career Transition Coaching

Whether you are at a point of choosing change or are having change thrust upon you, e.g. redundancy, relocation, career change, business start up, Career Transition coaching can help you create an exciting new future with courage and confidence.

The Process

  1. Identify core strengths, values and areas of greatest, individual impact
  2. Engage in structured exploration of personal and professional aspirations to determine next steps around career
  3. Learn how to plug knowledge and skill gaps
  4. Identify pilots (small experiments) that you can make around your career, to find the most promising career direction with low risk
  5. Work on energy flows and blocks which will enable clear, continuous steps towards career goals

Key Takeaways

You are a good candidate for Career Transition coaching if you want the following

  1. Work/career which is aligned to how you see yourself (your needs, motivations, interests)
  2. Clarity on where and how to reskill yourself
  3. Staying relevant to the latest workplace scenarios and directing your career by choice, rather than compulsion
  4. A clear strategy to make your mark as an independent professional/expert/entrepreneur

Research around Transitions

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.
