Introducing a one-to-one career change coaching programme which brings you the courage and motivation to make a career change, forge your path and align with your purpose. Whether you’re contemplating a new role or industry or ready to launch a purpose-led business, if you need a gentle (or not-so-gentle) nudge and a roadmap to make the leap, then this programme is for you.
The Forge Your Path career change coaching programme…
If you’re setting up your own business, you will also discover how to:
I work with people like you who are finally ready to make a career change, launch into a more purpose-led career or business and enjoy a more fulfilling working life. I’ve supported hundreds of people in making the change into a new career or business. I’ve also been a Business Consultant in my days before becoming a Coach as well as setting up and running a couple of small businesses of my own.
So I understand first hand the fears and trepidations of taking a leap of faith. But I also know that with a bit of planning and the right mindset, you can make a successful leap into a more fulfilling career.
Let’s turn this question around…consider what it might be costing you to not invest in yourself (with me or whoever) in terms of higher income potential, happiness, health and wellbeing, relationships and things you can’t put a price on. Coaching is an investment and when you invest money into your growth, you are more likely to show up and do the work. Plus, each of my career coaching programmes has a monthly payment plan to help you spread out the cost.
I offer a risk-free 30 minute Coaching Taster Session to enable you to test the waters, ask me any questions you might have about coaching and get a sense of whether this is a good fit for you. If it isn’t, then you are free to choose another route.
Whilst timing is important, it’s also good to separate out a genuine need to delay starting with a process like this from an underlying fear of moving forward. Sometimes it’s better to wait until you have more headspace but also it can be useful to have coaching in the thick of things as this can add useful context and give you an opportunity to test out what you’re learning.
In this blog article, I give you some pointers on how you can decide whether now is the right time for you. Ultimately, I would always refer you to your intuition to guide you!
Change can be scary, I get it! But be aware that there are two different types of fear. One is a fear of something happening that you don’t want but there is also another fear. A fear of expanding, growing and occupying a bigger and exciting new space in the world. If this type of fear is present, take it as a good sign and don’t let it hold you back from making the changes you know you want to.
This is a mental position and nothing more! Regardless of your circumstances or what has already happened in your life, positive change is possible for you. When you open yourself up to the possibility of change (even if you don’t know how) then magic happens. I see it all the time.
I understand that not everyone will need the exact recipe of what I offer within each of my programmes. So, I am happy to adapt them to meet your specific needs (for example, if you’re in the middle of this programme and decide that staying in your current career is the best option but you need some support in building confidence or creating more balance in order to make it work). Alternatively, you can choose the flexible coaching option from the start where you co-create the goals and the agenda.
Everybody is on a different path and with a different timescale, so it’s possible that you may have further support needs. We can discuss your ongoing coaching needs at the end of the initial period and add on some sessions on either a regular or ad hoc basis.
All coaching sessions are currently held via Zoom. I offer a limited number of face-to-face sessions in the Manchester and Sheffield/Chesterfield regions.
Coaching is all about taking action and learning from those actions.
Initially in a session, we will check in with your current state, how you are feeling, what’s happening for you and any progress you have made towards your coaching goals. We may go through a coaching exercise together where I guide you through a process or technique which I know can support you in moving forward. There is always the opportunity for you to bring to session any relevant issues or opportunities which we can work through together. I will always check in with you at the end of a session to see how it went and ensure you are getting what you need from me.
Each session will typically involve establishing 3 or 4 actions or next steps for you to take before the next session which will move you closer to your goal. This might include completing a coaching exercise/worksheet, beginning a new practice/habit or approaching an upcoming work challenge or opportunity in a new way. (It may also be about doing nothing and allowing yourself to just ‘be’!) There is also a certain amount of self-reflection which is encouraged in between sessions and journaling about any thoughts/feelings/beliefs or insights which arise which we can then use in a future session.
Aside from the sessions themselves, I would normally recommend a minimum of 2 hours in between sessions to work through any exercises or do some journaling. Many of the actions can be integrated into daily life (e.g. being more mindful or showing up to a work meeting in a different way) and so don’t require a time commitment as such.
Drop me a line and I’ll help you get the information you need to see whether you want to take things any further.
