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 change, or perhaps your restlessness and dissatisfaction at work have grown too strong to ignore. This can happen at any stage of your career - early, mid and later career-changers can all share a strong desire to build a more fulfilling future.

I tailor the Quickstep Career Change Programme to suit your individual needs, wherever you are in the world and whatever stage of you life you’re currently living.

And in January 2019, I’m launching a group Quickstep Programme for the career-changers who feel extra-motivated amongst others on a quest for more fulfilling work.

What's Included in the Career Change Programme for individuals?

  • A proven career-change process and materials created by Firework™

  • 6 coaching sessions in person or by Skype

  • 25 tasks and exercises between sessions to help you build the future you want

  • Email contact throughout the programme

  • By the end of Quickstep, you’ll have a compelling plan to move into a new direction – one that fulfills your values, strengths and passions and that is realistic and practical for your unique context.

  • Visualisations, guided meditation and coaching techniques to combat your inner critic and discover your empowered self

 

How Does It Work?

The Quickstep Career Change Programme is designed to get your career change moving fast. 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 YOU-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 completely online or face to face career change courses or done a great deal of self-awareness exercises during their career or by downloading excerises and 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!

 

But don't take my word for it

Here's what some of my previous clients have said about the Quickstep Career Change Programme:

I loved the Quickstep process and found it useful to break it into manageable chunks. I loved the build up and progression that it gave me without being too daunting! I need to ensure that I now revisit everything (as there was a great deal of information) and make sure I have absorbed everything and can keep it fresh in my mind. There was so much great information, templates and exercises provided and it was great value for money.
— L.M. (Consultant and entrepreneur)
Before starting the Quickstep Career Change Programme I felt lost, frustrated and scared of change, but by the end I was much more understanding of myself, my motivations and my strengths. What’s more, now I’m taking action to do things that are exciting and fulfilling without feeling like I need to wait for the perfect circumstances before starting.

And about me as a coach: 

Becky is superb. She has a natural ability to build a trusting relationship with you very quickly which helps you feel at ease. She immediately felt like a friend, made me feel at ease, built my confidence, listened and guided – all of the attributes that you would want from a coach.
— Liz M.
Becky’s welcoming and open manner instantly put me at my ease and I felt extremely comfortable talking with her. Without me realizing, she was able to identify the things that were important to me and help me focus on achievable actions with confidence. I always left our conversations with a bounce in my step and a smile. Thank you!
— Vanessa R.
Becky helped me to explore various career options and opportunities enabling me to gradually focus and refine my targeted career segment. This well- structured journey, allowed me to exploit and focus on my strengths, resulting in a job offer from a global company much earlier than I’d expected.
Becky always makes time, and even more importantly, engages with you at a personal level, with personalized material. Her ‘soft nudges’ kept me on track and I have no doubt that her grace and patience can carry anyone along.
— M.Z.
