Career Coaching

TWEAKING YOUR CAREER

Nicola

One-on-one Career Coaching is for you if you are:

  • In transition.You have been laid off, have quit your previous position, or are onboarding to a new position.

  • Unhappy in your current position.You may feel a general sense of annoyance but can’t put your finger on the exact problem. Something just doesn’t seem right with work.

  • Ready and committed to working with someone. You understand that need to make some changes.

Benefits of working with a coach

Fulfillment and Daily Satisfaction: 

Whether you are in the wrong role, the wrong company, or the wrong industry, Nicola can help to re-align your work and help you achieve more fulfillment and daily satisfaction. While a tiny tweak may be all that is required, Nicola can also help you with substantial tweaks — just like she did in her own life (i.e., transitioning from teaching computer science to coaching).

A True sense of purpose:  

When your work is anything but fulfilling, it can take its toll on you. After all, work is a big part of our daily lives and contributes to our overall happiness. When you are happy at work, you tend to feel more fulfilled with a true sense of purpose.

Clarity for the future: 

Up until now, you might have been trying to figure things out on your own, but your mind seems to go around in circles without any clear direction. Talking with an expert will help you to move out of that circle. And towards a clear path for the future. Nicola will work with you to analyze your unique wants and needs and optimize your transferable skills to work towards a brighter and better future.

  • You are stressed about your workload.

  • Your needs are not being met with the organization.

Kelly Woods
Nicola is a pleasure to work with as a career coach. She provides thorough assessments, evaluations and insightful recommendations for someone who is interested in exploring new career paths and opportunities. I would highly recommend her professional services and consider it a great privilege that I have had the opportunity to work with her.
I worked with Nicola when I was going through a career change, through multiple personality and other tests. Nicola helped me understand how I work and what environment suits me best. She helped me narrow down my career options to a top 5 and encouraged me to talk to people in those fields to understand better what they do. I was able to find a new job within three months of meeting Nicola and am incredibly grateful for her help!
Nicola helped me understand my talents and abilities and confirm my own personal observations, allowing me to move forward with more confidence in directions that I have selected. More importantly, she also allowed me to identify my foundational skills, giving me the opportunity to apply them successfully in new situations. I have also been able to identify some new opportunities, areas that I did not realize that my skills were applicable or valuable. Through the entire coaching process she also acted with high integrity and helped me face both the good and bad opinions that I had regarding my work skills. At the end she demonstrated that she cares for the people that she helps.
Nicola is thorough, responsive, flexible and insightful. She helped me understand my strengths and abilities which in turn allowed me to communicate about them more effectively to different groups. Nicola’s guidance strengthened my professional voice and sharpened my career focus. Her support helped me successfully identify and secure the right opportunity.
