Career and Performance Development

How does Career Development and Performance Coaching work?

Career development and performance and skills coaching can either take the form of structured sessions or you might want to deal intensively with one particular issue or event. Structured one hour sessions are scheduled at specific intervals arranged to fit in with your work commitments. If you need intensive coaching you might prefer longer sessions to target your significant issue.

By setting your own journey goals and using a variety of exercises and techniques during the program with actions to complete in between sessions you will maintain focus and be able to benchmark your achievements.

An added benefit from performance and skills and career development coaching is that you will be able to compile your own Personal Development Plan to take forward and keep you on track. The important thing is you will be deciding to take control of your issues and you will be investing in yourself.

What can Performance and Skills Coaching help with?

In 2001 the European Council indicated that job satisfaction was an indicator of job quality.

In a 2010 CIPD survey almost two thirds of employees stated that stress had increased as a result of economic factors.

The Work Foundation Survey in 2001 found that many employees felt that work was simply a way of making a living.

Being unhappy or dissatisfied at work can be a major problem for people managing their careers and affecting their personal lives. Being able to handle change, being tough and masterful, juggling varying tasks and enjoying good relations with colleagues and superiors are skills many people need to achieve a happy working life.
