Career Management

Enlightened individuals realise that in these times it is a real struggle to stand out from the masses to secure or maintain a job. They need to engage with the career management of their working lives; as companies no longer take the responsibility for doing  that. Prior to the financial crises, the old maxim was to hire someone who was a 75% fit for the company. The remaining 25% allowed the individual to develop into the role. Companies understood that they needed to train a new employee and that the employee probably had a steep learning curve.

This is no longer true.

Companies are now hiring employees who are a 100% fit. This is damaging to the company and the individual. This decision means there is no growth available for the successful candidate – which means that they will soon become dissatisfied and begin to underperform. The company soon has apathetic employees and unsuccessful candidates despair that they will ever find the role that they are looking for.

Mavericks may find themselves unable to fit into the organisation and risk losing their job or being overlooked for promotion.

We help individuals who wish to manage their career. This might be a CV review, interview practice, enabling them to make a career move from one role to another (eg retail manager to HR). We also specialise in helping individuals stand out from the crowd and craft their own ‘branded’ identity.

For those that are interested in identifying and exploiting their core talent then our N-Code® – Personal Success Strategy programme may be of interest.

Please note that our services are solution based. This means we assess with you, your needs and the ultimate solution provided may be delivered via consultancy, 121 mentoring, public course or a combination of these or other items not previously mentioned.

If you are looking for a particular intervention that you don’t see here, please contact us.

This is why managing mavericks can be alternatively frustrating and rewarding. They are complex individuals which have the ability to provoke amazing performance in themselves and others or create a toxic environment that few can survive.

We are approached at times by the maverick themselves. This is usually because they are fed up with not getting the rewards they deserve, because they are yet to understand how to harness their own talent. Alternatively they are compelled to seek change because their job is on the line.

Fortunately we have knowledge of the maverick mindset, their capabilities, the strategies that they use to be successful and how their utilise power to their best effect. When we work with you, we distil this knowledge so that increased performance and reduced toxicity becomes a given. Regardless o whether we are working with the manager, the employee or both. It is a fun, challenging and rewarding experience for all involved.

Don't just take our word for it.Take a look at what is being said.

I asked Judith to help me with some coaching, so that I could become clearer directed and better focused in my business. She was quick, and perceptive, helping me some habitual techniques were limiting my effectiveness. She gave me simple and useful strategies that made a significant difference.

Then things really stepped off the beaten track. Through a deceptively simple series of steps, Judith guided me on a process of self-discovery so that I identified something she referred to as my N-Code®. This is a short phrase that completely describes what I fundamentally do when I express my greatness. This phrase expresses me at my most productive, my most effective, my most authentic, my most successful.

What a tool!

If I find myself somewhat adrift on a project, or am struggling to see a clear way ahead, recalling my N-Code® and its elements quickly helps to restore clarity of purpose to my endeavours, so I act more productively and happily.

Thank you Judith. It was a pleasure to work with you. Sure, it was challenging – work like this is bound to be. But you were kind and clear … and persistent, so that I could not hide behind platitudes.

My recommendation? Take time with Judith if you want your work to become a natural and comfortable expression of your own authenticity, and want more clarity, success and peace in your daily endeavours – Christopher Head, Director, Irenicon Ltd 

Judith very skilfully combined escorting me towards discovering my N-Code® with helping me see the way that I work through others’ eyes. This gave me a much clearer vision of my personal value add and the pitfalls that I must avoid, which have stood me in good stead in daily life. Judith showed the strength to provide effective feedback to a maverick senior manager – I was impressed and remain very grateful – Tom Heinersdorff, Director, Business Guidance Ltd
