Who you are...
If your focus is...
- taking on a new role or promotion
- changing job and changing company
- considering a change of career
- starting a new business
- or just want to get the most out of your current role
you want to realise your professional and personal potential and demonstrate it effectively.
If you want...
- support, challenge and a confidential space to think about the next steps in your career
- time to explore options so you can make smart, well-informed decisions and plan what to do next
- to understand what motivates you and gives your work life meaning, purpose and to consider which kind of company is the right cultural fit for you, so that you can bring greater energy and engagement to your job
- to look at which strengths underpin your success and how you can use them to greater effect
- to be aware of which of your personality traits could let you down when you are under pressure, or simply disengaged, and how they may be impacting your reputation at work and therefore career advancement.
How I can help you...
I can help you create a clear and motivating, personal development plan to you help achieve your career-based goals. Working with me to create a personal development plan is the perfect way to quantify your abilities, understand your motivations, define or redefine your career path, examine what might get in the way and demonstrate to yourself and employers, how you are actively working on those career-based goals.
Personal Development Plans with a difference…
We look at your aims and objectives in detail and formulate a plan on how to achieve them. We also take it a step further by doing a personality and values assessment, evaluating:
What Makes You, You? What is important to you, your levels of self-confidence, how you manage your emotions, resiliency and self-control, drive and ambition, how competitive and inclined towards leadership you are.
How You Get on With Other People… Maintaining good relationships, having empathy and consideration for others, ability to factor others into decision making, how engaging, empowering and influential you are.
How You Get the Job Done…. Your approach to tasks, planning, analysis, problem solving and thinking style, commercial interest and awareness, how conscientious, reliable and meticulous you may be in delivery.
How Stress or Pressure Impacts You… We are all inclined to have performance limitations, but when we are stressed, bored, feeling disengaged or burned out, we can stop “managing” our day to day reputation which can result in negative or counterproductive behaviour. Some people may withdraw, becoming irritable, mistrustful and inclined to micro-manage, while others may become, intimidating, resistant to feedback or reckless in their decision making. Psychologically speaking, these are all strategies for managing insecurity, which are often quite outside our awareness.
I also provide recommendations for managing behavioural “derailers” that could impact career success. By helping my clients gain greater self-insight and clarity on achievements and goals, they have been able to improve performance, confidence and demonstrate ability and readiness for moving to “the next step” in their career.
By predicting how you do the job, you gain better insight into you motivations, strengths and areas for development at work.

Online Personality & Values Assessment
You complete 3 online assessements (approx. 40 mins total)
The purpose of these assessments are to predict your likely performance in a job role, based on your personality, values and preferences. The Hogan Assessment view of personality is that it is made up of two components:
We look at two views of your personality in our assessments
How you are likely to see yourself, your values and what is important to you, which is largely subjective
How others are likely to see you, this is based on an individual's behaviour in terms of characteristics. Those characteristics reflect how that individuals behaviour is observed and evaluated after repeated interactions with others.
