Career Development Coaching

Take your career to the next level of success

Do you want to take your career to the next level, but feel something is holding you back? Are you feeling frustrated in your efforts to reach a more senior role, or in finding the challenge you’re really looking for?

Developing your career can be a frustrating experience, and sometimes it can feel like the path forward is a secret known to everyone but you. Through coaching you can better understand where to focus your efforts, and how to overcome the obstacles in your path to achieve the career success you’re looking for.

Career development coaching can be helpful in situations including:

  • Achieving a promotion
  • Getting a pay rise
  • Boosting your performance and effectiveness
  • Positioning yourself for more senior roles
  • Identifying new opportunities in your industry

During career development coaching I help you to recognise your achievements and strengths, become clear on what you want, explore the options open to you and then create and implement an action plan for you to reach your goal.

Career Transition Coaching

Find your path to new opportunities

Are you thinking about a career move or new direction, but aren’t sure where to start? Whether you’re thinking about a move to a new role, a different employer or a complete change of direction, it can be a time of great uncertainty. Knowing how to navigate this period of change, utilise your existing skills, experience and networks and how to deal with the challenges in your way can make all the difference to your success.

In career transition coaching, I support you in making this change as smoothly as possible, considering the practicalities as well as the dream.

In career transition coaching we will focus on helping you to evaluate the strengths which can be harnessed in your new career, creatively explore the options open to you and evaluate how these meet your needs. We also explore obstacles to this change and how you can overcome these, before creating and implementing your action plan to achieve this exciting life change.

  • Nick, Higher Education

    Scott undoubtedly helped me realise and achieve my goal which was to progress within my department. The advice, encouragement and coaching Scott gave me was valuable and allowed me to freely express and think about what I wanted to do and how I should get there. If it wasn’t for Scott I very much doubt I wouldn’t be where I am today.

  • Mary, Solicitor, Legal Services

    Scott coached me when I was at a cross roads in my career. Scott is very easy to talk to and a great listener. He uses different techniques which help you understand yourself better and think about options you have never considered before. He offers practical and creative solutions which help you address issues. The results of Scott's coaching gave me the confidence to really focus and take action which I would not have been able to do without Scott's support. I am now much more fulfilled and happier. Scott is a fantastic Careers coach and I cannot recommend him more highly to anyone else who finds themselves stuck in the same position in their own career.

  • Stefanie, L&D Specialist

    When I started the 1-1 coaching with Scott, I was ready to make a change in my career but lacked the necessary self-awareness, clarity and direction to take next steps. I highly recommend Scott because the sessions have been a revelation in many ways. Under his guidance not only was I able to clearly identify and build on my strengths, moreover he encouraged me to explore professional development options that I had not considered before and provided me with extremely useful practical support in terms of tailoring my CV and building my networks. Scott has given me the springboard that I needed and I am very grateful for his continuous support.

  • Nidi, Manager, Local Authority

    I started coaching sessions with Scott when I was facing challenges at work and wanted to work through how best to tackle these and develop my role at work. Scott is a great listener and very patiently helped me work through different options and showed me techniques to help understand what I needed to do to take control of my role. The tips and techniques we worked through have been invaluable to me. In particular the exercise we worked through to help me understand what I am good at and what I actually enjoy doing was very illuminating and with Scott’s help I have a real understanding of where I could develop my role. By the end of our sessions, I have much more self awareness and an understanding of what I need in my work and how I can best develop my role using my skills and abilities. I feel much more confident and am enjoying the work that I do with a strategy to develop this and my skills further. I have no hesitation in recommending Scott and his excellent coaching skills to anyone else.

  • Hannah, Director, Charity and Social Enterprise

    Working with Scott has been really valuable for me. I was at a point of transition in my career when we met - leaving a business I had set-up in order to start new work and pursue different opportunities. Scott helped me reflect on my strengths and what I had learnt through running the initial business, and also what would motivate and energise me as I developed a new business. These reflections have been really useful and I’ve used them to shape my direction and the work I am undertaking now.

  • Matt, Director, Property Management

    I worked with Scott over a period of around 6 months and found our sessions useful, interesting, and enjoyable.  I work as an Area Director in property management overseeing a number of staff and projects, as well as being directly answerable to numerous clients.  Our discussions allowed me to carefully review and re-evaluate my existing approach to issues within my career, as well as head towards forthcoming challenges in a clear minded and prepared way.  Scott is personable, perceptive, and allows discussions to take place that lead one to work towards solutions, always ensuring that the coachee leads the thinking and ‘owns’ the conclusions reached and plans agreed.  I would be happy to recommend Scott’s services.
