My clients say more

Claire was an excellent coach. She was a professional, but above all I felt that she truly cared which I really appreciated. Through the coaching sessions with Claire, I have learned how to cope with stress/challenges which made me adapt quickly to the culture in the organisation.

Are you a Jackhammer or a Hummingbird?

Being British I had to look up the former as I had no idea. Basically it’s rather like a woodpecker! I’ll come back to this later on. As a Career Coach of some years, I often get clients who are frustrated as they don’t know what they’re going to do workwise. They feel they haven’t got a ‘passion’. They often sense that something is ‘wrong’ as they ought to know what they want to do career-wise. This is even more obvious with those starting out on their careers. They are often asked by well-meaning family or friends ’so what are you going to do now?’ There’s often a huge expectation that they SHOULD know exactly what they want to do. Some people do.
