Career coaching is a series of one to one conversations that help you identify and overcome any challenges you are facing and to achieve your goals.
Whether that’s increasing your confidence and skills, becoming a better leader or moving into a new role.
Career or business coaching is founded on the belief that you have the answers you need within you. Your coach simply helps you find them for yourself by asking the right questions and using the right tools.
- Help you set clear goals and then reach those goals
- Guide you to do more than you would have on your own
- Focus you better to produce quicker results
- Provide the tools, support and structure to accomplish more.
Watch first hand what career coaching is like, why people use it and the benefits it brings them…
Lezanne is looking for support with setting new goals that challenge her, give her purpose and something to look forward to. This will give her back the structure and sense of purpose that she feels is missing for her.
Mary wants to work on time management to help her see things through to the end so that she feels in control and less stressed.
Lucille is using career coaching to work out how she can reach her ideal clients to grow and develop her new business.
How does coaching differ from mentoring and other forms of learning?
Coaching is forward looking, not remedial. It is a structured learning conversation, with agreed actions between sessions. It focuses on the development of new skills, enhancing interpersonal skills, career and leadership development. Your coach does not have to be an expert in your field of work. They are an expert in asking the right questions and using appropriate tools to help you unlock your potential.
How does it work?
We can either meet in person or talk on the phone or video call, or a mix, whichever suits you. Coaching sessions usually last around 45 minutes to 1.5 hours and will always end with you committing to action.
The number of sessions you’ll need depends on what you’d like to achieve but is typically 6-10 sessions over 5-6 months. During our initial conversation we will talk about your goals and Jenny will then suggest a tailored programme for you, letting you know how many sessions she would recommend. If you are happy with this, we will get our first call booked in.
It’s important to say that Jenny offers a completely confidential service so nothing you discuss would ever be shared.

- For Organisations
When providing corporate coaching, we typically begin the process with a triangular conversation between line manager, coachee and coach. This can include HR or other sponsors also. The purpose is to contract around confidentiality, objectives and how we will work together. Reviews during the process and at the end may also take place as well as evaluation.If you are interested in coaching for your team or across your organisation, please get in touch letting me know your requirements and goals so that I can tailor a package for you.
