Career Coaching

Are you ready to take charge of your career?

Hello! I’m Yvonne Akinmodun.

 I coach people who have reached a turning point in their working life.

Perhaps their current career no longer holds the same fulfilment and sense of achievement it once did for them and they feel stuck.  Maybe they are facing redundancy or returning to work after having children.

Many have been in professional roles and/or had successful careers so far and now want to regain balance or build confidence to do something that gives them greater fulfilment.  Some people have a dream but no plan, others have no idea what they want to do next –  but they know they don’t want to do what they are doing now!

If any of this sounds like you, then career coaching can help you to make the changes you want.

PEOPLE SWITCHING JOBS

Has the time come for you to look for a new job? Do you hate the idea of waking up every morning and going to work? Perhaps your fed up with office politics and would like a new start.

I work with people who have worked with their current employer for many years but don’t enjoy their job. They stay in their current place of work because they lack the confidence or tools needed to look for their ideal job. I can help you unblock any limiting beliefs that might be preventing you form taking that next step to job satisfaction.

THOSE CHANGING CAREERS

It can be so tempting to go after a career that promises the key to your future! Recruitment websites that list sought-after jobs make them seem like blessings from above. And some of them probably are. But does that mean that such careers are for you?

When choosing a career path, it’s important to be wise with your deliberations. I work with individuals who are seeking to find the right career choices for them. The support I offer includes working with individuals to identify their passion and what they are seeking in a future career and match it with a job or career path that offers fulfilment. This is particularly important if you are seeking a second career in later life.

PARENTS RETURNING TO WORK

Are you a stay at home parent who now needs to get back into the workplace? This can be quite a daunting experience. I work with parents who need help from preparing their CVs to identifying the main tools they need to use as part of their job search.
Being out the job market for a while can often mean that you are not being sure how to prepare for a job interview. What do you wear? How to you explain the gaps in your CV?

EMPLOYEES EXPERIENCING REDUNDANCY

Whether you are an individual or a company having to make staff reductions I can work with you to help manage the process and make it a less difficult experience as possible. For employees who have been with their employer for a long time and suddenly find themselves thrust into the job market they need to appropriate support to determine their next steps.

I carry out assessments using a range of career planning tools to help support employees take stock of their strengths and determine what they might want to do next. This may range from finding another job in the same sector to finding work outside the sector or even using the opportunity start their own business
