Do you want to become a Partner or get on the Board? If you are in a senior position, on the Board, changing career or just been made redundant you may hardly remember the last time you were in an interview. Whatever your situation, a lot will have changed since then and your story needs telling well!
Whether you are fighting to become a Partner or get on the Board, changing career, changing company or struggling to get going again after being made redundant – professional interview preparation and storytelling coaching could literally change your life.
All professional athletes have coaches – why don’t you have one for your career?
Board Room battles
Some of my work involves board room battles, succession wars and campaigns to become Managing Partner. These can be tough when you really do not know who to trust – board room politics can make Westminster politics look tame. Having an independent outsider, coach, sounding board and confidante could be just what you need.
AGM Preparation and Preparing for Select Committees
I help Board members prepare their delivery for AGM speeches and AGM Q & A and I have also helped a senior VP prepare to go in front of a House of Commons Select Committee.
Becoming a Partner
Some of my work is with Senior Associates wanting to make Partner in law and accountancy firms. This is literally life changing – you make Partner or you get missed out for another year. If you miss twice you may as well change companies.
Been made redundant or fired?
If you have been made redundant or fired, you have a sensitive and very important story to tell. Fewer senior jobs, more applicants and an increasing focus on youth over experience means you must make every interview count. You have to stand out – or your competition will get ahead of you. But you also have to fit in – to play their game and to play it well. I can help you with this.
Discrete executive coaching
Some of my clients are able to put my fees through Business Development or Personal Development budgets – while others prefer to keep the coaching away from office gossip and we meet off-campus and pay me directly.
A professionally qualified trainer, I also have extensive interviewing experience from the other side of the fence:
Confidentiality is extra important in interview preparation for senior executives.
I deal with all my clients directly.
Discretion and rigour are guaranteed.
Career development is the most important part of most people’s lives. The decisions you make in your career and the steps you take to identify and then progress in your career are amongst the biggest you will ever make.
In the 24,000 plus hours of message crafting and narrative work that I have done over the last 24 years, I have coached over 1000 people 1-2-1. This executive career coaching focuses on you, your personal brand, your personal development, your aims, ambitions and progress. It is intense but rewarding – and in some cases literally life-changing.
Some people have changed careers totally because of the work we have done together. Some have decided to stick to their chosen paths and, partly because of the work we have done together, have prospered. Some have been promoted or head-hunted. All have become clearer about what they want, their abilities and where they need to catch up. Or stay ahead! All have left better equipped to get what they want out of their lives and their careers.
This includes ditching the negative perceptions of themselves that they had harboured, nurtured and tolerated like favourite children. All of them are now able to identify and articulate their strengths, their assets and their ambitions. All of them are happier. Most are richer and more successful.
