Career Rescue


Have you been promoted into a senior role, feel out of your depth and struggling to compete with your new peer group?

Have you started a senior role in a new company and it is not going as well as you hoped?

Do you want to avoid being one of the 40% of leaders who fail within 18 months of getting promoted or changing jobs?

If this sounds like you, I can help. My proven 6 month coaching and mentoring programme has been designed for people just like you. Take a look at what I cover during a typical programme –

Month 1 – Assessment

During the first month, we will do a deep dive assessment on the following areas –

  • Success criteria, metrics and impediments
  • Expectation, values and misalignment
  • Relationships
  • Vision
  • Your organisation
  • Professional development areas
  • Personal balance

From this we will create a current state heat-map to identify areas we need to work on as a priority.

Month 2 – Plan

This month, we will take the heat-map and build out a challenging, but achievable 90-day action plan with milestones and measurables so we can turn the heat-map back to green.

Month 3, 4 & 5 – Execute

During the next 90 days, you will execute your 90 day plan with full support from your accountability and change partner.

Each month we will reassess the heat-map and adapt the plan if required.

Month 6 – Reassessment

In the last month of the programme, we perform a full reassessment to ensure you are back on your way to success in your new role.

Why this programme & why this coach?

Unlike many other coaches in the market, I have spent over 15 years as a senior technology leader where I have successfully transitioned multiple promotions and taken on a senior role in a different company.

I have also successfully mentored and coached many leaders through the same challenging transitions.

From this experience, I have taken what worked and what didn’t work and carefully designed a programme that will help you and others to succeed during this exciting, but challenging time in your career.

Nick is an incredible mentor and coach. Having worked in his team at Credit Suisse and learning from his leadership and people skills, I am glad he has considered coaching through his venture ‘Develite’. I have been following his blogs and it has helped me a lot and I highly recommend people to read them and connect with Nick to receive his coaching for personal and professional development.

Nick’s coaching helped me stop feeling completely overwhelmed by workload and shown me how I can take a calm step by step approach to decide what I need to achieve and then work out a logical order of tasks to get there.
