  1. 7 ways coaching will help your career

    Posted on

    Everyone’s at it! From your favourite sports star, award-winning actress, to your favourite soap star or most-listened-to musician. In fact I'd take a bet that your former boss and the business leaders you most admire are all doing it too!

    Doing what?
    I'd take a bet that they are all having coaching or mentoring sessions, to improve their game, whatever their game is. 

    As leaders in their fields, they know they need to stay ahead of the crowd. Coaching helps them do this, and it will help you do the same! 

    In this blog I share with you my 7 ways in which coaching will help your career and much more: 

  2. Making the moves that count post-redundancy

    Posted on

    Redundancy is hard. There’s no two ways about it. But what you do - or don’t do - after it can make all the difference to your future.

    I’ve written before that a redundancy ‘signals a chance to assess your lifestyle’. It’s a time for you to really think hard about what you want next from your career, and how you’re going to make that happen. 

  3. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

    As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic fallout, the number of UK redundancies this year is estimated at 134,000 so far, though many more positions are expected to head that way over the coming months, too.

     If you’ve been made redundant during 2020, you’re not alone.

     But you’re probably wondering - what next?

     Sadly, at a time of increased redundancy, employment opportunities are fewer.

     Times like this are made from a cruel mix of less full-time employment positions available, and many more people scrambling to win them. Not a position any jobseeker wishes to find themselves in.

     I know this all sounds bleak, but bear with me because there is a solution to your problems.

     As the saying goes; ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade’.

    For those willing to step outside of their comfort zone, there are a lot of opportunities available.

    Though many full-time jobs no longer exist, it doesn’t mean that the requirements of those jobs have disappeared altogether.

    It’s common that companies no longer need someone for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week but that they instead need someone to step in and take care of a few of the former-role responsibilities.

     Enter: Consultants.

     A consultant’s role is increasingly important during times like this, and companies are clambering over each other to find the right person.

    That person could be you in as little as 6 weeks’ time if you take the right, and relevant, steps today.

    I know, taking the Leap into Consulting™ can seem intimidating. There is a lot to think about but my tried and tested method gets results.

    Think of it this way: in 6 weeks’ time, what are your chances of finding - and landing - your perfect new job?

     If you join my Bootcamp, alongside it’s other go-getter delegates, I’m sure you’ll find your chances are better than you ever could have hoped for.

  4. Do you want to earn more money while working from home?

    Do you want to earn more money while working from home?
    Do you want to earn more money while working from home?
    You're not alone...

    I know what you’re thinking - it doesn't sound real. But I promise you it can be.

    In fact, I set out on this very journey 26 years ago and found I could make it happen much more easily than I had imagined. Since then, I have helped countless people do the same.

    The good news? You can do it too. The answer lies in consulting. Consultants often out-earn salaried workers within the first couple of years.

    The bad news? Making the Leap into Consulting™ can be a bit of a minefield. New consultants often find themselves lost for a few years; losing money while they try to figure out the business side of things, how to price themselves, or how to find clients.

    But, as it’s 2020 and I think we all need a little more good news in our lives, I’m here to tell you that becoming a consultant doesn’t have to take years to figure out. Many new consultants just need a helping hand and some robust advice to ensure the entire process happens much quicker.

    In fact, I can help you do it in just 6 weeks.

    My 6-week Fast Track HR Consultants Bootcamp focusses on a few specific steps you need to take in order to reach success. Many others have been through the Bootcamp and come out as successful owners of a consultancy business.

    Have a look at some of our recent 5 star reviews here.

    We focus on mindset, motivation and yes - money.

    Six weeks is all it takes to change your life. If you’re serious about making it happen, join us.

    Our next Bootcamp starts mid September - it's self paced with group coaching once a week.

    If you'd like a chat with me about how this might work for you just book a time in my diary, I'd love to help you become a consultant.
