It's February!

Don't let 2018 slip by without taking action on your job hunt

ARE YOU LOOKING, THINKING ABOUT LOOKING OR NEED TO BE LOOKING FOR A NEW JOB IN 2018?

Do you essentially know the type of job you want and what you need to do, but not doing it?

Is this despite having landed great jobs in the past and most likely sitting on the other side of the interview table many times?

When it comes to job searching, most accomplished professionals know what to do but find it challenging applying their knowledge and experience to their own job search.

"We like it to the the old adage that the bootmaker's children will have holes in their shoes!"

You know the theory of what you should be doing, but you're not really putting it into action.

That's where peer-based group coaching and mentoring circles come in. They help flay self doubt and create momentum.

HOW PEER BASED COACHING CIRCLES WORK

Peer-based coaching & mentoring circles connect like minded professionals into small, discreet cohorts whose members draw upon their experience and expertise to advise, support and encourage each others' job search.

Supported by a skilled facilitator you essentially have a Board of Advisors dedicated to supporting your job hunt.  Created as 'virtuous circles', this means that as a member of the 'Board' in turn, you use your experience and insight to advise others in the circle.

Our program is run over 5 weeks and combines face-to-face and online meetings. Each coaching circle is comprised of 5 - 10 people.  Being part of a coaching circle helps you:

  • gain courage, confidence and momentum from regularly meeting with a supportive, like-minded group
  • stay focussed and accountable in your search and on top of the latest trends with the support of a skilled facilitator
  • access peers to discuss, brainstorm and get advice on the small questions to the big challenges of your job search

Other benefits include:

  • carving out dedicated time in your calendar and increasing the effectiveness of your job search through added focus 
  • replacing or complementing more expensive coaching options
  • expanding your network

"Whether it's to canvas thoughts on if a text, email or phone call would be the best way to followup a recent meeting, understand how others deal with the frustration or get the group's opinion on how your last role is best described, even seasoned professionals benefit from someone to talk things over with."

WHY 5 WEEKS AND WHY CALL IT A 'CIRCLE'?

Participating in an ongoing program allows a trusted and safe environment to develop. 

It fosters the time, space and relationships needed for ideas to form, thoughts to percolate and insights to evolve. 

In the spirit of 'what goes around, comes around', it is a circle because the cohort is only effective if participants 'give as well as get'. Partly because that's the right thing to do. Partly because you can learn as much by listening to and advising others, as you can from seeking and hearing advice.
