If you want to change jobs or career then you need to ensure that you are going towards something you DO want and not away from something you DON'T want.

Perhaps you feel stuck in a rut and want to grow and learn but you are worried about leaving the security of where you are now for something unknown that may not work out?

Perhaps you just have a  niggling sense of dissatisfaction with your current role and your prospects? But you just don’t know what you really want to do with your career?  

Or perhaps you feel that you are at a career crossroads but are afraid of going in the wrong direction?

If any of those applies to you then this short course will show you how to set your career compass and ensure you are going in the right direction.

There are 3 exercises, with explanatory videos and associated templates for you to download:

  1. The daily journal 
  2. Career anchors
  3. The wheel of life

You may have come across some of these before but I have adapted them to reflect the latest Behavioural Science and Happiness research. Wouldn't it be great to have a job in which you are genuinely happy and that you are proud of?

The second two exercises are best done quickly but will cause you to reflect deeply on what you really want and how to find a balance between different aspects of your work and your life as a whole.

The first exercise, the daily journal is best done over at least two weeks and preferably a month. It might sound onerous but I have created a template you can download, that allows you to record the keys elements of each day in just a couple of minutes, so don't be put off.

The journal is important because your memory is fallible, so you will remember high points and low points. Stand out moments. But most of your time at work isn't one of those, so it's really important to track your experience as closely as possible to when it occurs.

So the course is short but is prepared to have to think very hard but you will be rewarded with a career compass that will help you to navigate not to your next job but for your whole career.

Who this course is for:
  • You will find this useful if you want to find a job but your not sure what you want to do?

About the instructors

For over ten years, I have been helping thirty-something professionals, like yourself, to find a job you love.

Before that, I specialised in running large IT-enabled change programs, primarily in the finance industry. And in that role, for more than 20 years, I had to hire a lot of people, at all levels of the organisations I worked in. Recruiting people was often a frustrating business. The people I needed, to help me get the results I wanted, often didn't make it through the formal recruitment process.

Then, just over ten years ago, I started mentoring thirty-something students and alumni for a leading UK business school. I subsequently joined their executive coaching panel.

And it turned out that the #1 topic for most of my clients was out that how to find a job they would truly love. Luckily, my long experience as a hiring manager enabled me to teach clients how to sidestep the traditional recruitment process and to persuade hiring managers to hire them, even when there was no job advertised.

It also turned out that the core advice that helped my clients was pretty much the same, no matter whether they were a junior manager or a high-flyer with their eyes on the C-suite.

So, rather than ask clients to pay top-rate for my time, just to listen to me, I started to put the information into videos, articles and exercises that they could watch, in bite-sized chunks, on the move, when they needed it. 

And incidentally, I still do some work as a consultant in the field of organisational change, alongside my career coaching and mentoring work. This gives you the benefit of advice from someone who is still involved in what is going on within organisations but whose main focus is helping talented professionals to find a job they love.
