Firework Career Coaching Programme

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Mark Twain

My ground breaking Career Coaching Programme aims to help you take a journey from uncertainty about your present career and not knowing what your next step might be, through to having a clear vision of a career that is absolutely right for you, and a plan for how to create it. Together we will clarify what you want in your life as a whole as well as in your work.

I have co-written, researched and developed the Firework Career Coaching Programme. It has been carefully tailored using research into best practice in career evaluation and transition, backed up by our considerable experience as life and career coaches. I now train and licence other coaches to deliver my Firework Programme internationally.

What is unique about this programme is that it draws on your own innate resourcefulness to help you identify an exciting and viable new career direction. The programme provides a framework for the coaching in the form of interesting and engaging exercises which will bring out your own creativity and resourcefulness and direct it toward discovering the right next step for your working life.

Research shows that those who are most satisfied and motivated by their work are in careers which reflect who they really are; careers which reflect their true nature and their real passions; careers which draw on their innate strengths and employ their favourite skills; careers which allow them to honour their deeply-held values. When you are inspired and motivated by your work, you spring out of bed each morning, eager to get going.

My pioneering Career Coaching Programme is a structured coaching process which will enable you to ignite your potential. You will clarify who you are – your values, your personality, your interests, your strengths. Step by step we work together to discover where to direct your talent and energies, and then we create an action plan which represents your chosen career path.

"Previous perceptions of careers involved a ladder.  Those are changing and may be more like a carousel which people jump on and off, into jobs that have yet to be invented."
