We also assist with professional CV writing, researching Executive Search Firms, Recruitment Agencies, and Job Boards, as well as offering advice on networking and targeting of relevant roles. Clients are able to practice interview techniques and psychometric tests and receive constructive and motivational feedback.
Coaching sessions tend to take place at off-site venues, which are convenient for the individual client. Best practice recommendations are for up to 4 sessions spaced two or three weeks apart. This allows the individual time to complete practical interim assignments in-between sessions.
Each Coaching session is conducted in a relaxed and informal way, however there is an emphasis on professionalism and developing a SMART Personal Action Plan, which may include potential further development opportunities such as relevant courses, online learning or working with a Mentor.
