Christine is a coaching associate in Wellington - supporting our Wellington clients for face-to-face engagement.
Having worked in people development roles for over 25 years Christine brings significant experience as a career coach, organisational development consultant, and management consultant. She’s experienced first-hand the challenges of having her role disestablished and transitioning back into professional employment after nine years of being a full-time parent. Christine’s ability to change direction has been due to her pragmatism, analytical skills, strong networks, and the ability to articulate exactly how she adds value to organisations. These have enabled her to move between roles and sectors in the Wellington market, and as a career coach provides valuable insights for others seeking to secure a new role.
Christine has worked with people in the public sector, finance industry, legal profession, IT, education, creative sector, and not-for-profit sectors at all levels. She believes most people have significantly more professional potential than they ever realise.
"As New Zealanders, we believe Kāore te kumara e korero mō tōna ake reka (The kumara doesn’t speak of its own sweetness). However, during a job search, there's benefit in balancing your humility alongside effectively sharing with others what you've achieved."
As a career coach, Christine will enable you to authentically describe and evidence your strengths in the language you're comfortable with.
“ Christine makes the impossible feel possible. She rebuilds your confidence, defines your strengths, and teaches you to connect with people and opportunities effectively. It was invaluable having such an astute, pragmatic person in my corner. With Christine’s help, I found a rewarding role faster and with less stress.” Jamie
Christine works with job seekers to clarify their career narrative (the story of where they’ve been), focus on their potential (explore what could be) and make change happen (use practical tools to connect them to their next opportunity). She’s known for being strategic, people-focused, discrete, and practical - aiming to find that balance between challenging and supporting people to be their best.
Christine joined MyCareerBrand because of the depth of experience, collaborative team coaching, and strengths-based, rigorous, market-leading, and people-friendly tools developed for career progression.
