Looking for a new role?

Or just some clarity about your future options - given the current economic situation and the effects of the Corona Virus?

Perhaps you've recently lost your position, or think that you might do in the next few months? Or perhaps you just feel like a change!

If so, you're probably worried and stressed about how you are going to manage this situation.

You may be anxious about how you will keep paying the bills and maintaining your family’s current lifestyle.

Any sort of career transitions are tough. Right now, given the present situation with the Corona Virus, those career transitions just got a whole lot tougher.

One of the main problems is that when we are under significant stress, we find it hard to think clearly and objectively.

And this prevents us from making accurate assessments of our situation and making effective plans of action to move ourselves forward in the right direction. 

We can end up spinning in circles, going over the same thought patterns again and again, and ultimately being stuck and unable to move in any direction.

This is where I can help you…

My name is Antony Shave and I work with senior managers to help them transition from one job position to another, to improve their leadership skills, and to build high-performance management teams.

Since 1999 I have worked with 1000s of senior managers in over 50 large organisations in 25 different countries.

The career transition coaching service that I provide for senior managers delivers the following benefits

  • You will have greater clarity about your professional goals and the kind of position and role that you seek - you will know exactly what you are looking for!
  • You will feel in control of your current situation, as you become fully aware of all the aspects of it (good and bad), and the many options that you have.
  • You will have a direction and clear pathway to take - so you don’t waste time and energy going around in circles or down dead-ends.
  • You will have greater peace of mind in knowing that you have a simple and practical “Plan” and are not just leaving it all up to chance and luck.
  • You will feel a renewed sense of confidence in the tremendous skills and experience that you have to offer - and that you will find that new position.
  • You will feel motivated to take the actions that you know you need to take towards finding and securing a new role.
  • You will have a confidential, independent, and objective thought partner and sounding board for you to contact at any time to discuss your ideas (and concerns) - and to hold you accountable for what you said that you would do!

The Approach

The career transition coaching service has five phases:

Phase 1: Situation Review

In this first phase the aim is to fully understand and lay-out your current life situation (both professionally and personally), so that you can see and appreciate the big-picture (the good, the bad, what’s working, and what’s not).

Phase 2: Goals and Objectives

Once you know exactly where you are, you can now focus on where you want to get to. What you want to achieve. The kind of roles and positions that would suit you best and where you can add most value. Goals will give you direction, meaning, and purpose. Without goals you are rudderless, floating around, getting blown wherever the wind takes you.

Phase 3: Options

So you now know where you want to get to and therefore in what general direction you want to go. Now you need to think about all the possible ways that you can get there - all the options that you have (and there’s always many more than you can immediately see or think of). Once we’ve laid out all the options, we need to start evaluating all those options and prioritising them.

Phase 4: Strategy and Plan

When we’ve identified your best options, we can start creating a simple strategy and plan of action for the next 6 - 12 months. Identifying what you will do and when. The activities that you will do every day, week, and month - that will help you move your game forward. During this phase we would also be working on polishing your CV and professional profiles like LinkedIn.

Phase 5: Actions, Tracking, and Course-correction

Now you’ve got your plan, you just need to start acting on it. Doing the things that will take you towards your goals. Measuring your progress along the way. And adjusting and polishing your plan as you need to. This may well include revisiting your goals and options as well. We will also do some interview training and reviewing your salary negotiation tactics.

Typically, the first four phases would be covered across four x 90-minute coaching conversations over a 2 to 3-week period of time.

Phase Five consists of regular 90-minute coaching conversations every 2 weeks. Of course we will be in constant contact by email throughout the whole programme.

Whether you just need to urgently find a new position asap, or have the time and resources to pause for a while and reflect more deeply on your professional and personal life goals, I can help you.
