BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH A COACH
Clarity on transferable skills and options:
Whether you are in the wrong role, company, or industry, Nicola can help to re-align your work and achieve more fulfillment and daily satisfaction. Nicola will help you to analyze your unique wants and needs and optimize your transferable skills to work towards a brighter and better future. 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 your daily life and contributes to your overall happiness. When you have a true sense of purpose, you are more likely to feel fulfilled and happy at work.
Direction 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 a circle. Talking with an expert will help you to move out of that circle. Nicola will work with you to create a clear vision of the future, with action steps to get there.
