Job Seekers Program
Finding yourself on the job market at any point in your career can be daunting, whether it is your choice or not. The way you present yourself is crucial. From your resume to your elevator pitch to your interview skills to that all-important LinkedIn profile – you need to stand out from the crowd if you want to succeed. Now is the time to clarify your goals; develop your strategy; take control of your personal brand; rethink your resume/social media presence and get that new job.
Career Change Program
Are you unhappy with your job? Would you like to switch to a truly satisfying career?
Step 1 – Online Career Assessment : To help you find the right career direction, we will assess your strengths, career values, interests, skills and career personality and the kind of work environments in which you will flourish. This provides an understanding of the types of careers, industries and work environments that suit you and bring out your best and make you happy.
Step 2 – Career Consultation : When you have completed the two online assessments and a skills assessment, your career consultant will set a time with you to go through your reports. During this session you will discover the careers that best suit your strengths, interests, values, skills and personality, explore your career options and get help identifying a career that best suits you, learn how to conduct deeper research into areas of career interest and develop an action plan to help you on your path to a rewarding career.
What is executive coaching?
An executive coach acts as a sounding board, challenges thinking, stimulates creativity, provides tools and techniques for dealing with challenging situations, gives encouragement and builds confidence. The coach has unconditional positive regard for the coachee, has no agenda other than the coachee’s and is always on the coachee’s side. Together with good rapport, this builds a coaching relationship based on trust.
The benefits of executive coaching
For executives and senior managers, executive coaching is for you if you want to progress at work but not sure how, or you want to be an even more effective leader or improve your workplace performance. Executive coaching is for you if you want more out of your career.
What does a life coach do?
Life coaching is for people from all walks of life and all ages and stages of life who want more out of life but are struggling to do it alone. For those who would benefit from a trusted advisor, a confidante, a mentor and coach to encourage and help them achieve sought after goals.
Our approach to life coaching is an integrated mix of practices from solution focused coaching, NLP, neuroscience and positive psychology.
Solution-focused coaching is concerned with what a client wants to achieve in the end. A solution-focused coach will question a client about a goal in order to clarify his or her vision. What is it they really want? How are they going to get there? What happens once they do get there? Solution-focused coaching encourages: introspection, self-evaluation, clear goal setting and a richer understanding of one’s own unique path in life.
