The Quickstep Career Change Programme
You know you need to do something to change direction, but you don’t know what.
Circumstances might have forced a career change, or perhaps your dissatisfaction at work have grown too strong to ignore. You’re ready to take action but how exactly can you take the first steps to a more fulfilling working life?
Most of my career change clients are looking for answers to these questions:
What else can I do?
What am I really looking for?
Have I left it too late?
How can I actually make a new career pay?
And however can I make this change happen?
If this frustration is sapping your energy and your optimism, read on!
The Quickstep Career Change Programme is a structured 3-stage course designed to enable you to:
gain crystal clarity about what a fulfilling career means to you
generate and evaluate new options that suit you and your life today
create a workable plan to make this new career a reality
develop greater self-belief and resilience for your transition
This is what one of my recent clients had to say when he’s completed the programme:
At the end of the programme you’ll have re-gained your conference that change is possible, achieved clarity on your new direction, why your new career is perfect for you, and how you will get yourself there.
You’ll have fuel for the journey and belief that it can happen!

How Does It Work?
The Quickstep Career Change Programme is designed to get your career change moving in the right direction for you. From Clarity to Direction to Action, you can move at your own pace through each of the 2-session stages.
FLEXIBILITY to suit you: You can sign up for each phase separately or get a discount if you reserve the whole 6-session programme in advance.
The pace is completely in your hands. Most of my clients find one session every fortnight works well, but if you have more time to devote to the reflective work between sessions, it's possible to opt for once a week. If life throws you a curve ball during the programme, it's absolutely fine to have a couple of weeks off and then pick it up again when you're ready.
The 3 Phases
1. CLARITY: This is all about YOU. Over 2 coaching sessions, we'll explore your strengths, values, achievements, purpose and what drives you. Using the Freestyle profile sheet, you'll record everything you discover about yourself to use in the next phase.
2. DIRECTION: This is dream time! Over 2 coaching sessions, you'll generate a wide range of career ideas to explore against your CLARITY findings. Using a Spectrum of Possibilities, you'll explore what it could look like to have each of your top two options in your future working life. You'll then be ready to choose one of them.
3. ACTION: In this final 2 hours of coaching, you'll work on your new idea and create a career-change plan that is both ambitious and practical. By focusing first on reasons your idea is likely to succeed, you'll then be in the right frame of mind to identify gaps, problems and other aspects of your context that will need some work. This is the bridge-building phase when we get thoroughly grounded in your reality and create a plan to tackle each potential barrier so that you can move you into an inspiring future.
The Final step is called Claiming My Future - your final commitment to making this reality.
What's in it for me?
This career change programme is a winner when it comes to diving deep AND getting into effective action.
At the start of the programme most of my clients are feeling:
STUCK - some have been thinking about changing direction for some time but have got stuck inside their heads. Others have actually completed online or face to face career change courses or done tried self-awareness exercises during their career or by downloading assessments. BUT! for one reason or another this process has stalled and they need help getting back into focused action
UNHAPPY - either with themselves (Why can't I get going? If I'm finding this so hard perhaps I don't deserve to be fulfilled) or with a career that's sucking them dry, leaving them so exhausted and despondent that the prospect of finding the energy to make a change is really daunting
CONFUSED - what else can I possibly do? I've got these three great ideas but how do I choose between them? How do I make my real passion earn me enough money to live on?
LOST - for ideas, support, professional guidance or where to turn next
DESPERATE - if I don't do this now, it'll be too late!
Do any of these sound familiar?
I really do understand because I've been there myself. And this is why I created this particular career change programme - I know it works and I understand how awful it is to feel trapped and frustrated with what was once a successful career.
How does this sound instead?
By the end of the Quickstep Career Change Programme, you'll be feeling:
CLEAR about your future path
EXCITED to get your plan into action and claim this purpose-filled future
HAPPY that you have invested in your life, that you have taken yourself and your own right to fulfilment seriously
MOTIVATED to overcome the challenges ahead - it won't all be plain sailing but now you know exactly WHY this new direction is a perfect fit for you. This will fuel your planning and inspire your creativity
EMPOWERED - you will have a process that works, the self-awareness to make it happen and the ability to re-design if you need to
CONFIDENT in yourself and your choice. It all makes sense and you're ready to fly!
What does it cost?
This 6-session coaching programme, complete with all materials and email contact throughout and after completion, is priced at £480.
I offer payment plans to suit your circumstances and a 5% discount when you pay for the programme in advance. Just get in touch if you have any questions or would like to request the programme brochure: firstname.lastname@example.org
