We have listened to our clients. So we understand that some people find the transition from their current position to their new role somewhat daunting. As a result, they get ‘stuck’ and find it easier to remain where they are. Or start to move forward only to stall at the first hurdle. In order to address and rectify this problem, we have developed our Career Coaching Programme.
Career Coaching and Career Development
What is it?
One-on-one career coaching enables you to progress from where you are now to where you want to be ultimately. Your career coach will guide and facilitate your progress towards defined goals. We will remove barriers that have prevented change from happening, and break down a large goal into manageable steps.
What are the benefits of career coaching?
One-on-one career coaching encourages you to be totally clear about what you want from your career and why you want it. Consequently, it provides you with practical support throughout the process. We will help you develop clear goals and achieve them. Your career coach will support you every step of the way, ensuring that you are committed to take action. So, by building awareness, confidence and self-belief, you can achieve more.
What does a career coaching session look like?
A career coaching session generally lasts for 1 or 2 hours during which time the career coach and client review specific actions, outcomes and issues. Each session closes with agreement on actions to be taken before the next session.
How many sessions do I need?
We suggest weekly meetings and would propose a booking of 4 sessions in order to see significant results. However, you will experience some benefits almost immediately.

Looking for career development in the career you already have?
To stay on top of your game you need to progress and develop your skills. Today’s workplace is increasingly uncertain, so you need to be fully confident in your abilities and career path.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Am I progressing as I think I should – if not, how can I accelerate this?
- Is the organisation I’m working for the right size and culture for me?
- Am I making the most of my talents, abilities, experience and qualifications?
- Should I retrain or update my qualifications?
- Are there areas, such as leadership skills, that are holding me back?
- Is stress, anger or resentment an issue and restricting my progress?
Examine your career progress with our qualified and experienced team of career coaches.
It’s time to take stock and review your options. Find out about your strengths and weaknesses. Can new qualifications invigorate your passion for your career? Will a move to a different organisation be the right option?
Career Analysts will help you clarify your goals and accelerate your career development. We will explore your hopes for the future, your personal and career history to date, and your personal practical circumstances and draw all of this together to help you progress in your chosen career path.
We work with you to put a strategy in place for your career development. It will involve coaching for the areas that are holding you back, such as leadership, people and man-management skills. It may be identifying potential new employers to approach or promotions to target, or even involve branching out on your own.
The objectives of these sessions are entirely set by you. Whether it is to hone your leadership skills, manage change, how to get the best from your team or managers or just to stay on top of your game. In short, these individual coaching sessions make the difference.
We find that the normal requirement for this process is six to twelve sessions. Our pricing for this programme is at an hourly rate. We are not in the business of overselling to our clients. If you only need six sessions during this process, we will not try and sell you twelve.
