Finding your Purpose – Planning your Career

Finding your Purpose – Planning your Career is an experiential group coaching course. By the end, you will both have clarity of your purpose and have created a plan to take your first steps. This programme is run in 4 x 2-hour workshops. Each workshop focuses on specific topics.

Overview

The last few years have caused many to question their overall purpose and career direction. Consequently, people are revisiting their values and reassessing their roles to determine the fit with their idea of a fulfilling career. If this resonates with you, our programme will provide the framework and tools for developing the clarity you are seeking. 

Each individual has unique definitions of purpose, career and ambition, and also expresses their values differently. To support this, we have structured exercises for reflecting on these attributes for building a meaningful action plan, underpinned by a practical peer coaching programme.

Our approach to purpose and career is pragmatic, holding that most careers serve to earn a living for oneself and their families. We are confident that you will gain clarity on your own definitions, and together we will explore how you can express these through your working life and career development.

This course is relevant for anyone regardless of your role, level or stage in life. In the group coaching process, you will be able to reflect on your stage in life and explore what is next for you.

 

Objectives

  •   Learnt from highs and lows, successes and challenges of your career to date
  •   Identified your strengths, values and motivators for your working life

Coaches
We introduce a staged approach to exploring purpose and career which you will be able to use to support your coaching clients.
Managers and Leaders

A core part of our role as leaders is to have career conversations with our team members. Our staged approach to having these conversations will provide you with a model to use with your teams.
