The most recent research (Sept 15) from The London School of Business & Finance indicates that 1 in 4 men regret their current career choice.
So why are both men and women professionals hesitant to make career changes?
In the same research, the following reasons were identified. Do you recognise any of them?
- Financial Stability
- Fear of Failure
- Not Knowing Where to Start
- Time Required
- Disruption to Life
What if you could navigate these fears?
What if you could openly discuss them with someone who won’t judge you?
What if you could shift your perspective, and jump those hurdles way more easily than you thought possible?
Career Change Programme
Six hours coaching – to be completed within 6 months
This programme is for you if you want a solid foundation on which to build a new career.
‘I found my sessions with Sandra really helpful in helping me to decide my future career direction. Sandra is very easy to talk to and provides plenty of prompts so that you don’t feel the sessions are all one way. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sandra to professionals considering their future career or who are looking for a life coach.’ – Adam B, Harpenden (Adam went on to recommended his brother to me)
Your Career Change Programme is unique to you, but to give you an understanding of what’s available here are some of the things I can help you achieve:
►Discover what you want
Gain clarity about what you want as a future career. This is essential to a successful career change. Your skills, talents and desire for change are all you need to begin. Together we will create a plan that will allow you to pave the way to a brighter future, starting right where you are.
►Banish your fear of failure
We will tackle your fears and discover your work values so that you more deeply connect to what’s really important to you at work. Your values drive your motivations, so discovering what they are then analysing your two most powerful drivers will mean you can make a profoundly informed choice about your new career.
►Design a life plan
This is a chance to create a life you won’t regret! The great thing about changing career is that you get to decide how to do it. If work / life balance is important for instance, you will design your plan with this in mind. You choose the pace, and how much it will affect your life.
►Lay the Foundations
This is an opportunity for you to sit down with your finances so you know exactly where you’re at and what you need to enjoy the life you want. Knowing what shape your finances are in can provide a platform from which to make any decisions. I will de-bunk any myths you may have around salary and working conditions in other jobs/industries.
►Decide the timescale
Some clients have eased themselves into their change, taking years rather than months to ensure more of a gentle transition rather than a massive leap. Others have launched themselves full throttle into new careers in months. The pace is up to you.
►Create new career possibilities
I will help you identify the resources you already have, and any others you may need to more fully support your new career aspirations. Job ads and online job boards are not the only ways to find your dream job. With a bit of inspiration and guidance from me, many of my clients have enjoyed highly creative ways to land their new career. You may be relieved to know that changing your career does not have to be difficult.
Many of my clients say that their career change was easier, and way more fun than they had imagined!

Imagine yourself in a year’s time and nothing has changed. How will that feel?
If you gave a shrug and thought, ‘that wouldn’t be so bad’ then perhaps this is not the right time for you. If your shoulders sank along with your heart, I’m afraid that feeling will only get worse. Even though this may be a really hard to hear, you cannot expect things to change unless you do.

Career Change Plus
This package includes everything in the Career Change Programme above with the addition of an hour’s review of your LinkedIn Profile over skype.
If you are serious about changing your career, getting a new job, or being a successful business owner it is essential that your LinkedIn Profile reflects who you are and what skills you have. LinkedIn is more and more becoming the go-to tool for employers and customers to find out if you are the right fit for them. If you aren’t visible there, and someone else who has a similar skill set to you is, they will have the advantage over you. Similarly, if you are on LinkedIn but your profile is out of date, or doesn’t reflect your best qualities, you are putting yourself at a disadvantage.
I will review your Profile and provide you with pointers that will enhance your online success based on what we’ve discovered during our previous six sessions.
My experience in HR Recruitment including my skill as a competency-based interviewer will provide you with insight about what’s important to say in your profile and guidance about how to stand out. You will also receive advice about how you can use LinkedIn to make the most of your profile and secure your next job.
Investing in this package will give you clarity and confidence about your next career move, and you will:
►Feel more confident about being seen on LinkedIn
►Understand how to use LinkedIn more skillfully to maximise your chances of success
►Gain insight and guidance about what to include, and what not to include
Your Investment: £700 including email support (concessions available if you’re claiming benefits, including working tax credit)
If you just would like more information or you would just like to work on your LinkedIn Profile page without additional coaching then I can offer a standalone personalised LinkedIn Profile Review.
Interested in investing in Career Change Plus? Please contact me to arrange a free, no obligation 40-minute consultation and we’ll discuss if this is the right programme for you.
Consultations are held in Luton, Bedfordshire only 30 minutes by train from London, or by phone or Skype so you can be anywhere in the world!
