Are you feeling stuck in your career? Looking to change/transition your career? Leap Career Coaching programme aims to take you on a journey from uncertainty about your present career, through to having a clear vision of a career that is right for you, and a plan for how to get there.

LEAP Career Coaching Programme

The career coaching programme has been carefully tailored using research into best practice in career evaluation and transition and backed up by my own experience as a Career Coach.

The tried and tested career coaching programme has been designed around four main areas: Personality, Skills, Research, and Marketing.

Research shows that those who are most satisfied and motivated by their work are in careers which reflect who they really are; careers which reflect their true nature and their real passions; careers which draw on their innate strengths and employ their favourite skills; careers which allow them to honour their deeply-held values.

Because of this, the foundation of the programme entails a long, hard look at who you are and how you view the world.  To assist with the Personality phase, a range of personality assessments are used as a guide along with specific career coaching exercises and powerful questioning, to help you gain knowledge about yourself and your life as a whole.

The aim is to gain clarity on what you must have in your career to be satisfied and motivated by looking at:

•Your personality
•Your values
•Your key work motivator’s

•Your preferred working environment/industry/organisation
During the second, Skills phase, we will examine your key strengths and working environment preferences. The Skills phase aim is to support you to gain clarity around:

•Your personal strengths
•Your transferable skills

•The skills you enjoy using most

The next layer of the programme is the Research phase and it involves you reflecting on what you have learnt in the first two phases of the programme and brainstorming career ideas that would you allow you to gain what you need at this point in your career. The research entails getting informed about what is needed to gain work in your chosen areas. This whole empowering process will enable you to turn your vision into a career that’s right for you into a soundly based action plan to make it happen.

You will investigate the top career possibility and research:

•How to align your needs
•Suitable positions
•Industry trends
•Job search strategies

Armed with the above information you are now ready for the final Marketing phase. At this point your CV and LinkedIn may be reviewed alongside your chosen career, interview and job hunting tips may be needed to maximize your chance of obtaining the role you want.

The areas of focus depend on your needs, some of the areas that may be covered are:

•Career Planning
•CV review
•Interview Skills
•Exit strategy

Like any coaching relationship, the coach is there to support you in achieving your goals but to make this programme effective you will need to take action. In order to achieve the outcomes desired and that are individually appropriate, a tailored, rather than prescriptive, career coaching process is used.
