Senior Executive Career Coaching Services and Executive Career Transitions Coach
Who Works With an Senior Executive Career Coach?
I work as an online executive career coach or face to face career coach with directors, CEOs, senior managers, consultants, tech workers and knowledge workers. Professionals I coach typically are mid career. My executive career coaching clients also include people from 'traditional' professions like doctors, engineers, lawyers and accountants. I also offer executive career coaching to people who aspire to such roles.
Why Work With an Executive Career Coach?
As your career progresses you may find yourself from time to time feeling less fulfilled in your professional life. Two factors often contribute this type of career dissatisfaction. Firstly, your organisation and your role and responsibilities may have evolved or changed. Secondly, you too may have changed; as you've grown and matured. As a result, you can start to feel that there's no longer a good fit between who you are now and the current reality of your role.
An executive career coach like me can work with you to identify and implement the changes you need to make to your career and working life so that you feel excited about your work again. Executive career coaching can help you gain self-awareness, boost your career success and career fulfilment.

One on one executive career coaching can help you update your self-knowledge about what’s important to you in your career now and what motivates you now. You’ll start to see your career and your professional field with ‘fresh eyes’ and gain fresh insight and knowledge about your career to date. This means you’ll be career planning on strong foundations.
Specifically executive career coaching can help you to:-
Develop long- and short-term career plans
Accelerate your career progression
Increase your pay and benefits
Find more meaning, purpose in your career. Feel more motivated.
Reduce stress and anxiety around work and career issues.
Want these things for yourself? Let’s have a chat about your situation and how executive career coaching with me can support you to take a fresh look at your career, make changes and achieve your goals
We’ll have an exploratory session of transformational executive career coaching. You’ll experience the executive career coaching relationship for yourself, so you’ll know how coaching with me feels for you.
I’ll then map out how personal executive career coaching with me will support your visions, dreams and goals to become reality and help you to make the changes you want to make.
When you’re happy with the plan we’ll proceed with a series of career coaching conversations. Below are some of the aspects we may look at :-
Reviewing your career journey to date, so that you understand not just the stages of your career but your decision-making processes along the way.
Deepening you self-awareness and self-knowledge including getting clear on your ‘career drivers’ – what motivates you in your career, and your ‘career values’ – what’s important to you in your career.
Analysing your skills.
Your 'higher values' around service and contribution, which for many people can be key to their long term career fulfilment.
In addition, we'll get creative! Creative thinking is a key part of my executive career coaching. Creative thinking can help you to find new options and solutions to your current career challenges. Creative thinking can also help you to create and explore new career futures for yourself.
An executive career coach never tells you what to do. You know yourself and your career aspirations best. Executive career coaching provides a creative space where you can gain insight and develop your own ideas and plans. I will help you by:-
Listening to you with empathy and without judgment
Helping you to tap into more of your experience - mind, body and feelings so you're moving forward from an authentic place
Asking you powerful questions that will help you gain insight.
Challenging you to you raise your game so you achieve more than you thought possible.
Supporting you to build your confidence and courage to make changes.
Helping you generate new ideas so you have more options.
Holding you accountable for your actions, so you achieve results
