Contact Aeona to book your place.

This programme builds your confidence to take control of managing your career and guide your search for your next job or promotion. With the insights you gain on this programme, you will target positions that you will find fulfilling and give you job satisfaction - whether you are managing your promotion up the career ladder or finding a new direction. When you know what you want, you will be more effective at looking for it and more successful at making it happen for you. We take a holistic approach and also consider family, values and goals, passions and leisure interests and also possible constraints such as financial considerations.

This intensive and transformational programme includes:

  • Four highly interactive meetings: two-hour group coaching sessions where we introduce some thought provoking tools and exercises to help you develop your thoughts, working individually, in pairs and as a whole group.
  • Pre-course work: starting you thinking about your personal values, what is important in your life and your goals.
  • Between sessions: flesh out the exercises and take actions, complete the online profiling questionnaires to aid your self-knowledge.
  • Useful resources on where to go for support on CV writing and job hunting.
  • Email support over the next 3 months to help you implement your plan.

week 1: Who am I and what is important in my life and career?
week 2: What do I want from my career?
week 3: What do I bring to my career?
week 4: Putting it all together: Setting goals and plan how to achieve it.


  • Raised self awareness (valuable for everyone in all walks of life and especially important if you are interested in leadership positions)
  • Your "Big5" personality profile, team profile, leadership and management profile and engagement profile.
  • Deeper understanding of your own motivations, sources of energy and where you will find fulfillment.
  • Deeper understanding of what you want from your career and how you will achieve it.

Participant Feedback from
previous career development workshops.

"I found it most useful to have time out to evaluate life/career. I liked the group discussion and workshop style and found it all very interesting and useful. I will now think positive!"

"I liked the discussion in pairs and using the wheel with ­work emphasis – always done the life one! I will do more reflection on what I want!"

"The discussions and idea of re-evaluating your own beliefs and values worked well for me."

"I liked sharing each other's thoughts with people outside my department and tips on thinking about who is in charge of my career. I will think more about me and my career."

"I liked the new approaches and having space to think."

"Very thought provoking."

"It was all great and interactive and thought provoking – especially reflecting on career / wants / needs / beliefs. I liked reviewing the wheels and working through one goal together. I will now consider my personal goals and values and work through my wheels!"

"Sue's presentation style including introductions at the outset was very warm and set an excellent tone. I liked the discussion with partners and found the techniques useful, especially with Sue's very good questions and encouragement to analyse them."

"It helped me think in a different way."

"I liked working with other delegates and I will now take the first steps towards my priority goals."

"The workshop gave me a chance to think and I liked the exercises."
