Would you tick any of these?
If you answered yes to any of the above you will want to re-set your life goals to secure your Career Leverage, defining what you know, what you like, when and with whom you’d like to do it.
Often, when people stop working full-time they still want to do some kind of ‘work’, be it paid or unpaid. ‘Work’ in this context can mean any time you are using your talents, experience, time or wisdom to benefit others.
What will it look like – part time, full time, doing what – more of the same or something different, how different?
Bottom line – you’re goal and action oriented, so you do need to make it happen rather than let it hit you in the face or not happen at all.
The objective of this coaching programme is to get you out of the chair you don't want to be in, and move you into the lifestyle you want.
Over a period of 3 coaching sessions totaling 5.5 hours face to face (8 hours of coach time) we’ll work with you to explore, test and shape action plans for you to leverage your career and life goals.
Whilst each module is structured in its delivery, the solution is designed to flex to meet your needs – whether it’s via face to face coaching or video conferencing.
We also offer to video your coaching sessions so that you can review these on-line as many times as you like. This has proven to be very popular with our clients as a powerful way of recalling the process, reflecting on key areas and re-capturing the essence of your coaching sessions in your own time.
What you will walk away with:
Note – you may have some of the below already in place. The purpose is to align and test.
Life Goals – Preparing for your future:
Work & Life: Work Choice in context – for the purposes of this programme the first transition step towards Work & Life Choice is potentially ending full-time work. Work Choice can be at any age and stage of life.
Reflections on Work Choice: Challenge your assumptions and mindset about Work Choice. One size does not fit everyone.
The Psychology of Reinvention: Being clear. Understanding that Work Choice is a process not an event or destination. The benefits of starting earlier rather than later on your process transition.
Planning for Choice: Identity, Money, Health, Relationships and Lifestyle.

Often when people stop working full-time they still want to do some kind of ‘work’, be it paid or unpaid. ‘Work’ in this context can mean any time you are using your talents, experience, time or wisdom for the benefits of others. This work could be a change from what you are doing now.
- Career Review and Stock Take: Includes identifying any career inhibitors, if they haven’t already arisen. Inhibitors can be addressed at this point, or any other point in the programme. The goal is to maximise your career opportunities.
