Finding the Right Job
The uncertainty of not knowing what job is right for you can be agonizing or deflating at the very least. Or you might know what you want but you are afraid you could never get it or make it work. Or, perhaps you might just have no idea what you like or what job you might enjoy. This is all very anxiety-provoking as well as overwhelming. Through career counselling, we will teach you strategies to deal with the fears and anxieties and to manage them so that you actually give yourself a chance to find and go for a meaningful career that you truly enjoy. Life is short and you deserve to be happy.
Ever heard people say that it’s not possible to have a career you like and get paid well for it. Our career counsellors would disagree with this prerogative and can actually help shift perspectives to make this a reality!
We will use our career counselling and coaching skills along with career testing to help you discover what you like and who you are. We use explorative career counselling and coaching sessions, experiential homework exercises, and other in-session exercises to explore and understand who you are and what your unique values are in constructing a personalized career roadmap that is achievable and actionable. This may include:
We have coaches and therapists on staff with Meyers Briggs Type Indicator teacher training. These are personality and career suitability assessments that can help you find a career that suits your unique personality.
Interview skills counselling and coaching:
Help managing anxiety and coming across as someone who has confidence when interviewing and networking. Role-playing interview questions and answers.
A Personalized Career Roadmap
You’ve heard of or have maybe even partaken in various personality tests at work under the banner of team building. You left feeling like they got it half right, or more. The insights into what drives a person like you at the workplace. All good knowledge to have by the way. But how do you now pull it all together into a cohesive plan where you are coached along while you achieve milestones designed and laid out just for you? Our amazing team of experts can help and guide you through this – providing the guard rails to ensure you stay on track as well as the right ways to keep you accountable and active in creating and pursuing the many opportunities that lay ahead for you.
Maybe you are at a workplace where you are having interpersonal communications issues with colleagues and management. There could be some toxicity in your environment – it wouldn’t be uncommon! Wherever you have more than one person working on something there are chances for misunderstanding, personal agendas, and the forming of power cliques. All things which add to anxiety, apprehension, and passive or full on aggressive behavior at work. How can I navigate my workplace – many clients come to see us because they may be in a rough patch with their boss, or are deadlocked in competition with a colleague for a promotion or plum project, or don’t know how to approach their manager with the fact that their life has changed and they need to be able to work from home more. Regardless of what work-life can throw at you we have the expertise and experience to help you not only succeed in achieving your objectives but also maintain relations with your colleagues, staff and bosses.
We have also helped many clients who are transitioning to progressively senior roles with increased scope at work. And all the “goodies” that can come with this. How to delegate and deliver more effectively… what approaches can I take to advance my ideas and those of my team… how can I adapt to my workplace and role while remaining authentic to my own values? Sound familiar? You are far from alone – why stumble around in the dark when you can benefit from the expertise of a therapist or life coach who has worked, in a hands on way, with these types of issues and opportunities for many many years and who can apply these real life learnings, with their training, to your situation in practical ways.
