I AM Awesome!

i-am-awsome-800x400

If you’ve recently lost your job
and now are feeling like a bit of a blob
Don’t oversleep, despair or cry
Look up instead at the bright blue sky

Consider how wonderful you really are
Shout out to everyone – both near and far
“Hey everybody – I AM awesome”
One like me is like hiring a foursome!

Here’s my technique to make that happen
It’s pretty cool and it’ll keep you clappin
Think about all your career wins
The awesome ones – not just the sins!

Write down all those special times
You added value to your employers’ lines
Made a huge difference to the company
Increased their profits with positive integrity

Give specific examples of everything you did
Soon you’ll start feeling like a very smart kid
It’ll be hard to wipe the grin off your face
But I promise it’ll help get you back in the race!

This little exercise will make you feel better
To get back in the game and become a go-getter
Don’t be a silly sausage – too shy to do this
Jump out of bed and follow your bliss

Too many jobseekers crumble under the pressure
Far better to reinvent, revive and feel fresher
So, shout out on Social Media at the top of your voice
I AM Awesome – the best candidate – and the best choice!

Virtual Career Coaching

virtual-career-800x400

Virtual Career Coaching is really great.
You don’t have to rush – or be late!
Do it from the comfort of your home.
You could even do it – from your throne!

Avoid the hassle of crazy rush hour.
You have control – you have the power.
Switch on SKYPE – you’re ready to go.
Talk to a Career Coach – in the know.

You save time and you save money.
It really is true – so not that funny.
This is the future of career coaching.
Yes it is – and I’m not even joking!

You fit in a session – when it suits you.
Day time or night time – either will do.
Wear your dressing gown, that’s okay.
Wear what you like – have it your way.

The main thing is that you can relax.
You could even – fix a few snacks.
Feel perfectly comfortable and at ease.
No need to dread – exorbitant fees!

Coaching is great – coaching is fun.
You’ll be shown – how things are done.
Nothing to fear – no need to fret.
Your expectations – will all soon be met.

So give it a go – come work with me.
I’ll show you things – you didn’t see.
Build up your confidence – make you so proud.
But most of all – to stand out in the crowd.

Career Coach Confessions – why I do this work !

Career Coach Confessions – why I do this work!

I love to write poetry;
I’m not one to be coy!
I advise on careers;
This brings me great joy!

A professional career coach,
I know what to do.
Job loss can be painful;
Career change is too.

Corporate restructures
Affect lots of lives,
Redundancies piercing,
Like daggers and knives!

I’ll reduce the suffering,
Put a halt to your pain,
Build up your confidence,
And help you stay sane!

When I motivate and inspire,
Uplift and entertain,
Educate and empower,
My work’s not in vain.

I’ll create an action plan
Especially for you,
Put you on the right path,
And help you get through.

Why investing in a career coach makes sense and how I can help!

  • As a Consultant, how do I provide the biggest impact?

    As a Consultant, my primary focus is to build each client’s confidence so that they remain motivated and inspired to take action. Some clients require more assistance (hand-holding) while others are already quite motivated and sufficiently empowered after only a couple of career coaching sessions. For those who require more attention, l will prepare a customized and detailed Strategy /Action Plan to guide them every step of the way. I follow up regularly via email /SMS /telephone to make sure they understand and complete the necessary homework provided. I stay in touch to make sure they remain engaged and committed throughout the program. My clients appreciate my attention to detail and know that I will go the extra mile to check that they stay on track.

  • How I can help parents supporting their adult children’s job seeking journey?

    I work with parents who may be experiencing stress and anxiety because their adult children are out of work.  I can provide the necessary guidance, motivation, inspiration and support needed to get your unemployed adult child back into the work-force!  Call me for a confidential, obligation-free chat about your specific situation.

  • What are the main career challenges for those in blue-collar / junior positions?

    Taking far too long to accept the reality of their situation. Dragging their feet! Not coming to grips with what has happened and therefore not taking the necessary immediate action to adequately prepare for their exit out of the company. Not knowing where to start. Not having a clear direction and action plan to do this. Engaging the services of a professional Career Coach to help you get on track and stay on track – can make all the difference for a successful outcome.

  • What are the main career challenges for mature age workers?

    • Lack of self-confidence and self-belief.aboutus
    • Ageism, discrimination (whether perceived or real)
    • Inadequate or insufficient computer and research skills
    • Outdated Resume, LinkedIn Profile
    • Feeling insecure about general marketing
    • Lack of presentation skills
    • Fear of self-promoting and appearing ridiculous
    • Fear of failure
  • What are the main career challenges for those in senior to mid-level management positions?

    The nature of jobs and the job landscape keeps changing rapidly. For this group, staying one step ahead of the curb can be a challenge – especially if they’ve been employed in the same company for over 5 years.  Managing expectations, uncertainty, crushed egos, bruised self-confidence, staying motivated are all mixed emotions this group are likely to experience. I am a professional Career Coach with over 25 years experience and I can help manage such challenges.
