Before I signed up for the Career Energiser Programme I was concerned about the time it would take up. I didn’t want it to be one of those things I take up, but not really follow through on.
But the programme gave me perspective on the traditional career path I’ve been chasing and enabled me to identify my skills and which ones I value and enjoy exercising. I have a better view of where I’d like to be in the future. I am now looking for a similar role because coaching has made me realise that I am in the right field, but what it has done is open up options that I’d previously been dismissive of.
Having the opportunity to reflect on my career has been really rewarding, throughout a demanding few years working in a tough environment I had lost sight of my achievements. I found the vision board particularly telling about what I’m looking for and to talk through this with Sarah helped me understand that the particular environment I was working in wasn’t right for me. The Career Energiser provided a structured programme for me to reflect on my career, open my eyes to new options and offered a tangible set of next actions.
