How do I know if this program is for me?
The Career Clarity Program is for you if you know that something needs to change in your career, but you feel uncertain about where or how to begin looking for better career options
Do any of these statements describe you?
You know deep down that you were made for something more than what your current job offers you, but you feel stuck in your job situation
You feel disengaged, dissatisfied, or unchallenged in your work. You've even tried scrolling through job ads online, only to find uninspiring results
You aren't in urgent need of finding a new job right away, but you do want to take proactive steps to carefully consider what other career options to pursue
You are open to exploring career paths outside your current company, occupation, or industry, but it's hard to know what type of work will align best with who you are.
The Career Clarity Program is a 7-session virtual one-on-one coaching program, specially designed to help professionals, managers and executives discover new career paths that are rewarding and fulfilling for them.
It was created based on Thomas’ 7+ years of coaching experience working with clients navigating their own career transitions.
"Thomas does an excellent job of helping you to map out your career journey... and provides you with tangible, actionable tools for jump-starting your short-term and long-term career path."
Ashutosh Sharma, Manager
What's the most successful way to navigate a career change?
There are two parts to any successful career change:
1. Getting clear about the type of work you want to do next
2. Then targeting opportunities to do the work you want, typically by job searching, starting a business, or pursuing multiple gigs
Unfortunately, too many career changers move straight into job searching without getting the clarity they need first.
This can lead to a downward spiral of disappointing results:
A confusing and inefficient job search prolonged by the fact that you aren't really sure what you want
Risking precious time and money preparing for a new role you aren't even sure you'll like
Eventually finding yourself in another unfulfilling job, and now you're back to square one
Fortunately, you don't have to make that mistake in your next career change!
The Career Clarity Program equips you to discover the occupations that fit with who you are! This saves you time and money by enabling you to avoid false-starts and target the careers you know you’ll love.
"With Thomas’ coaching I was able to transcend the confusion and lack of clarity I had around my work life and career. Not only did he help me face some difficult realities but he helped me to see my value and to honour my strengths and abilities."
Sandy Halloran, Financial Controller
