Career Reboot

career reboot

Are you outwardly successful, but inwardly unfulfilled, unsatisfied or unhappy in your current role?

Do you wonder about running your own company, starting a new career or doing something completely different, but aren’t sure what that looks like?

Do any of the following sound familiar?

  • You don’t know what to do, so do nothing
  • You feel financially trapped
  • You feel institutionalised and think you cannot do anything else
  • You find it hard to give up a role that took you years to achieve
  • You feel relatively safe and comfortable
  • You’d like to make a move, but are scared you may screw up
  • You are bringing these negative feelings home with you and those closest to you are noticing
  • It just seems impossible right now and you just don’t know where to turn

It doesn’t have to be like this. My coaching programme can help get you back to being excited, exhilarated, energised and empowered with a clearly mapped out future plan.

Together, we will –

  • Get crystal-clear on what you really want to do next
  • Remove any blockers that are stopping you moving forward to the future you want
  • Take your new business from concept to reality or your new career from idea to job offer
  • Keep you on track when you are hit with what seems impossible internal and external roadblocks.
  • Celebrate your exciting, rewarding and fulfilling new future

Why this programme & why this coach?

Unlike many other coaches in the market, I have followed the same challenging journey from outwardly successful, but unhappy senior leader to running my own fulfilling and rewarding business. Let me share my story:

My Story

I was a senior leader, with an impressive title, large global team and a hefty compensation package. My family and I were proud of what I had achieved, but I felt unhappy and unfulfilled.

I often dreamed about running my own company but did not know what to do. So, I stayed put. The more this went on, the more disenchanted and anxious I became.

I started to disengage at work and I took my emotions home with me.

My daughter constantly asked me why I was unhappy and grumpy

This was a trigger that I had to do something, but what?

I Escaped

Looking back, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. A colleague of mine had been on a coaching course at the weekend and wanted someone to practice on. I agreed, thinking I was helping him out, but boy was I wrong. We worked for weeks together and finally realised that it was ok not to know what to do. I had to try a new approach to find out what my next career move was.

I decided to take a year out to try these new things and spend more time with my family. I got my family’s support, which was critical, developed a plan and started execution.

It felt like a big weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I was excited, focussed and driven to find out what my future direction would be.

I created and sold a web application, qualified as a coach and started building my new business.

Bolted Back to Safety

I loved it, but, unfortunately, I got scared. Could I really do this? Was I prepared to continue to back myself? Would I run out of cash? And, I don’t mind admitting, at that stage, I lost my bottle and bolted back to safety into another corporate leadership role. I convinced myself that this was just a holding pattern, but after a year I got stuck again and became disgruntled, disheartened and very unhappy. Grumpy old dad was back.

I hired a qualified coach who spent a year with me helping me discover my “why”, working on my fears, my limiting beliefs and my business plan. I have never worked so hard on my internal self before. When I was a 100% ready, I hit the eject button again.

Happy Dad is Back

I now run my own successful and fulfilling business and I am no longer a grumpy old dad.

I have taken what worked and what didn’t work during my difficult journey and carefully designed a programme that will help you and others to succeed during this challenging time in your career.

I have had some difficult challenges in my career, but this was the most difficult. I 100% believe that without professional support, I would never have succeeded.
