WHAT DO I DO?
I help the experienced over 40s who are thinking of a new role or career change but are feeling a bit lost and don’t know what direction to take.
WHY DO I DO THIS?
When you are happy at work – whether in employment your own business – you thrive. You do your best work, have the best ideas and seem to have loads of energy. And this has a greater impact on everyone you are in contact with – your colleagues, customers, friends and family. When you recognise and accommodate what is uniquely important to you, you can be much more confident in your professional choices.
WHO DO I DO THIS FOR?
My clients are highly capable, experienced senior employed and even self-employed people in the UK, predominantly over 40, ready to make a significant career move but are feeling somewhat stuck or lost. I uncover what’s uniquely important to people at this stage in life and guide their transition towards either a motivating new role or a motivating new business – or something else!
“No matter how people reach their career crossroads, it is my privilege to help them recalibrate their compass and guide them towards their motivating working life.”
My clients learn what is professionally uniquely important to them at this stage in their life and what they must have and avoid in the future to feel fulfilled, excited and renewed. Depending on what’s right for them, my clients are given at least one motivating new role idea or a motivating new business idea. That brings clarity and relief even though it might be a bit unexpected! And isn’t that exciting?
HOW DO I WORK:
Clients can choose from the following:
1. CAREER CLARITY SERVICE
The first step is to become aware of what is professionally important to you at this moment. We use an ISO accredited diagnostic tool called a Motivational Map. I carefully interpret the results, set you some thought-provoking homework, and in our two 75 minute phone calls, I reveal my honest and pertinent insights and the door to your future working life opens up infront of you. You have a new direction. Read my article on how some people take a few months to let this percolate before taking any steps towards it. We keep in touch as much or as little as you wish during this time.
RESULT A – If self-employment or running your own business is your new route, armed with your motivating new business idea, you are given next steps and places to find business start-up or franchise guidance and advice. I am a business owner but not a business coach so I recommend a very experienced Start Up Business Coach who can walk you through the latest UK support and plenty of other appropriate contacts to suit your needs.
RESULT B – If it turns out that employment is best for you, my clients can choose some/all of the personalised options below. Very few navigate the route there on their own as they want to know all the hacks and make the process as fast and as enjoyable as possible.
NEW ROLE SEARCH AND EVALUATION – OPTIONS
- A CV upgrade and a LinkedIn profile upgrade to increase your visibility and appeal to recruiters and HR
- A strong Cover Letter that makes your uniqueness shine through and significantly increases your chances of getting an interview
- Job role Feedback on specific job adverts you’ve seen or roles you’ve heard about from headhunters – whether to pursue, what specifically to include in your initial communications and what to leave until interview
- Interview preparation – what questions you personally need to consider asking the interviewer, how to personally answer those difficult interview questions. You can even have a mock interview session if you’re out of practice.
- Post interview debrief
- (Multiple) job offer acceptance guidance
- New role keep in touch service
Here are some quotes from recent testimonials that say it better than I can:
Working with you was the singular best thing I have done this year to get my thinking about career issues on track. Not only did I get the opportunity to understand myself and my work life better, refocussing my thinking about what is important to me, crucially it helped steer me away from poorer decisions too.
My fear was that Suzanne would lack substance, be too fluffy or would push me too fast into making decisions. None of which was the case. Suzanne carefully guided me through a thorough evaluation of my strengths to root around in my career and personal goals, uncovering ambitions long forgotten and tucked away.
Finally, I’d like to say how much value I got. I’d recommend Suzanne to others facing a similar career roadblock. This was not fluffy, navel gazing personality based assassination – it’s been a valuable, professional and extremely useful journey with many a belly laugh along the way.
Seeing as you updated my CV and LinkedIn profile for me, I thought you’d like to know that during the interview for the role, the Director told me she had received over 300 CVs. She had selected just 8 to interview – of which I was one.
The main thing I feel now is that my desire to take a new career path is somehow validated. A lot of uncertainty and insecurity has been expelled and I feel energised to really focus on my future business.
A natural coach with insights that verged on psychic at times! Suzanne listens, observes and asks some killer questions that help shift perspectives and ways forward. She’s also very engaging, fun and inspiring to be around.
Thank you so much for your support and for inspiring a change. I feel like I have regained my confidence. I can’t thank you enough.
I would definitely recommend to anyone that they should talk to you if they are serious about making positive changes in their life to feel more fulfilled and happy in their work. It can only be a good thing for a person’s overall wellbeing. (Cliché alert) We only get one chance at life so it seems a shame not to take every opportunity to make it a happy one.
