What can I expect from Career Coaching?

Your career coaching programme will be designed around your own career needs and aspirations. You might want to discuss how you're feeling about work, issues that are currently troubling you, your aspirations for the future or things you feel are holding you back that you're feeling you'd like help with.

Coaching is a two-way equal partnership which is all about helping you to define, plan and achieve what you want from your career. Your coach will ask you some exploratory and perhaps deep questions that you've not previously considered,  helping you think about your career in a new way. They may also share insightful observations about you and your career which are designed to help you achieve greater personal growth.

"I had been reconsidering my career for some time, but had been struggling to have clarity or focus. These sessions helped me to re-engage with my core skills and motivations, some long neglected, and then progress into thinking about in what way these could be brought into future opportunities.

This has dramatically changed the way I am planning for my future, and has made me feel confident about my ability to achieve my new goals. " Lisa Hadwin

Disc Personality Profiling

A DiSC Personality profile is the language of behaviour.  Having your own DiSC profile can help you better understand yourself and those around you. It will help you to become a better communicator, to minimise conflict and to appreciate the differences in other people. Because DiSC is all about communication, you'll be able to positively influence those around you, and to improve your relationships both at home and at work.

No matter what industry you work in, there's no doubt that understanding the people around you can give you a major advantage. Whether you're a team leader, responsible for recruitment and team building then it would be great for you. If you're responsible for sales and nurturing relationships with clients, it can really help. Or if you simply want to have a better relationship with your team or your boss at work, it will give you some great insights. However you work with people, having an objective and comprehensive insight into different personalities can give you a real edge.

DiSC is a great tool that has helped many people all over the world. It's one of the most heavily relied on personality profiling tools which has been established for many years. In just 7 minutes you’ll answer a set of questions that will produce a very detailed report about your personality and behaviour. It’s not about limiting or labelling you, because no one acts in the same way all the time; instead it's about showing up general tendencies that may occur more often in your behaviours.

Here's an example of one of the pages of the report.

* The acronym DISC stands for the four personality styles represented by the 4 letters:

D - Dominant, driver

I - Influencing, inspiring

S - Steady, stable

C - Correct, compliance focused

DiSC Personality reports are included in all our Career Coaching Programmes.
