She encouraged me to go for it when others hadn’t and now I’m working in exactly the organisation I wanted
I came to Suzanne because I wasn’t happy in my role and kept flitting between hugely different career paths. I was worried something was wrong with me because I wasn’t fitting in at work and seemed to be pushing in the opposite direction to all my colleagues. I was stressed, isolated, misunderstood and worried I was going a bit crazy!
I was originally concerned that Suzanne would tell me to stop chasing my different dreams, but she completely understood me and encouraged me to go for it when others doubted me. And, in a few weeks I am moving country to start my new role in exactly the organisation I wanted.
Her assessment really helped me understand the type of role and organisation I am best suited for. It helped me see that I am obsessed with quality and doing things right – but that this isn’t always possible and not the way most people think. She showed me that I need a role that supports and encourages this part of my personality.
I also feel more confident about the skills I can bring to an organisation. Suzanne made me realise something about me that I didn’t know before; that if I can’t do something immediately, I’ll invest all the effort required to learn it. Recognising that this is a valuable skill that not everyone has makes me feel like I can try moving into different career paths, without having to go back and study first.
Suzanne also helped me to prioritise and delegate some things in my current role that I had been putting off, making time for what I actually want to do and things I am good at.
Suzanne brought great value in return for my investment with her. She was very responsive and reassuring when I needed it the most. She also helped to reinforce my strengths, which was so helpful when I was getting batted down as the ‘odd one out’ at work.
If you’re reading this and you have lost trust in yourself and are not sure what value you are bringing to the working world, working with Suzanne is a great way to remember who you are and what’s unique about you.
