Career Coaching

Career coaching is focused on helping you transition into a role that you love, get paid what you deserve and, in an environment, where you will flourish. Navigating the tricky pathway to career fulfilment is often fraught with frustration and lack of self-belief.

Claire-Marie Boggiano

My coaching style is open and safe. You choose what to focus on.

I mostly listen, ask some questions, reflect what I hear and encourage you to identify your own key learning points plus any actions you wish to give yourself.

I work with people seeking to make personal career transitions and business leaders implementing complex change.

I believe coaching is simply a way of helping someone move from A to B faster than they would on their own.

Jo Channon

Thinking about a career move? What’s stopping you? Very often we feel there’s something standing in our way; some barrier, perceived or real. I will work with you to identify what that might be and using different coaching and NLP techniques, help you to move forwards in pursuit of your goal.

I absolutely believe in the power of coaching and will create a safe place in which you can explore your options. I look forward to working with you.
