Last week I received amazing feedback from two workshops that I ran for a national commercial company. Everyone in the room was engaged and given the opportunity and freedom to express feelings about their impending redundancy. It was powerful, impactful, empowering, and inspiring. Everyone in the room was important. It is exciting to empower people to take ownership and action of their situation, to take proactive steps and initiative to make things happen. Through our caring of people and knowledge and guidance of the steps required to reach goals, many go on to amazing opportunities.
Are you up for the challenge to meet with us for one on one coaching? Or are you going to sit on the fence and hope something is going to happen?
A participant on 19th June, 2016 wrote the following about our Transition Coach.
I would like to thank you for all your help. I came to you at one of my lowest points I can remember in my life, how I was treated by my company and a few select individuals was beyond belief, this in turn affected my whole family.
At 50 years old and now unemployed I did not believe another company would want to invest their time with myself, adding to the stress I had submitted a dozen resumes 4 years previous at a time when the Mining sector was booming without one reply.
Elizabeth was a breath of fresh air from our 1st meeting, so pleasant and easy to talk to allowing myself to open up with ease relieving some of the built up anger I had been carrying allowing me to concentrate on the important things in life and to move forward.
Elizabeth is total honest in what you bring to the table, if Elizabeth says your Resume or cover letter is not up to scratch, please listen and take note, I am proof that a well-drawn up Resume and cover letter gets noticed.
With my confidence at its lowest Elizabeth encourage me to aim higher. With my new Resume and cover letter completed with a huge amount of help from Elizabeth,
I applied for 2 production manager jobs. I had a call the same day it hit the recruiters desk, with an interview the next day, 8 days later I was short listed for the other production managers job. My qualifications are in supervising so I was not expecting any response. Elizabeth makes you believe in your self-worth again. In the end I had to make a decision on what job I wanted, I picked the first one and I am learning everyday it’s a great feeling
Thank you Elizabeth without your experience, belief and enthusiasm I would still be looking for a job or a job that would not let me grow
Thank you from all our family

It makes my heart sing when an amazing transformation takes place. A young man who has been struggling with alcohol abuse and mental illness for quite some time met with me yesterday. He has been dry for over 4 months and with courage admitted himself into hospital. He sees this as a failure, I see this as courage and taking action.
I have found that just about everyone has issues and problems, and in some cases that go way back to early childhood. These problems are deeply entrenched in our subconscious and serve to remind us daily pulling us back from moving forward. I started helping my client to unravel the layers to get to the route of the problem. Together we determined a strategy that worked trialling a number of ideas. At the end my client felt motivated and for the first time in a long while in control. For a man who came in flat and lifeless, he left laughing and smiling.
What I know is that one way does not work for everyone and an open mind to trial different techniques and strategies may make the difference even if in a small way.
We all need a coach to help us get where we are going. We are all so good at burying our heads in the sand and making out that everything is fine and avoiding the real issues. The horrible fact is that nothing really goes away and the longer we leave it the harder it is to resolve, come to terms and deal with what is holding us back from achieving what really is possible. Mental health wellness truly matters.
