Career Coaching: Relaunching

Career Coaching – Relaunching. Many people are showing up here discontented with how their careers are right now.

Many of them showed up to their careers advice session at school with high aspirations. Only to have their aspirations, of being barristers, authors, journalists dashed. To be told it ‘wasn’t possible’, that It wouldn’t make money, or that they “couldn’t possibly understand how much commitment it would take”. And then, they were spun around like the pointer in Twister game and headed off in a totally different and seemingly random direction. Most returned to the classroom, deflated.
There is often that question of how would my life have looked if….?” Isn’t there. The problem with ‘Careers Advice’ is that it is exactly that: It’s ‘Advice’. I don’t remember any ‘listening’ or ‘hearing’ or ‘collaborating’ in this process at school. I remember psychometrics, assumptions, and judgments. Where was the space to explore and see what’s possible? I think many opportunities were lost.

Career Coaching: Relaunching

And, now, I am witnessing a lot of people who are making sure they pick these threads up later in life. The bonus is that they bring heaps of experience and capabilities to these endeavours. It’s a privilege to witness …
It IS possible, and, do you know what, whilst the rules are suspended, this is EXACTLY the time to carve it out your own way. Given a couple of years; when our “New Normal: had been set in place, dictated by the powers that be, it will be more difficult to weave your own way to the place you always wanted to be.  
Now is EXACTLY the right time to take your place in the world and to have your say!
Try it – I Dare You!
