The Programme In Action

When taking a brief, we take the time to get under the skin of your transition challenges. This makes a critical difference to creating and delivering a career coaching programme that is truly transformational. To get to the heart of the challenge quickly, we are not afraid to challenge the brief in order to agree the best way forward. Once this is established, we typically follow these 5 steps of the Platinum Career Coaching Programme…

The personal chemistry between our Lead Career Coach and those going through career change is crucial. Our coaches are not only acknowledged experts in career transition – some also have many years of experience as business leaders in their own right.

We have a two-step process:

a. The senior executive reads several profiles to explore the personal style, experience and attributes of each coach. The executive meets the two most inspiring coaches and chooses which of them to work with.

b. The coach becomes a ‘professional friend’ – a one-to-one mentor, coach, advisor and manager of the service from start to finish.

It is crucial for senior executives in transition to take time to understand themselves. The coach helps them to:-
a. Know Why
b. Know How
c. Know Whom

Clarity around an individual’s career destination is essential. We identify target companies and those with the power to hire. Seventy per cent of all senior executive roles are filled through networking, so we also audit personal networks and recommend ways to leverage these effectively for the best possible job search.

We also provide:-

a. Specialist help in putting together a CV and LinkedIn profile.

b. Research assistance for identifying targets and setting up interviews, client meetings and other personal, financial, administrative and presentational advice and support.

c. Strategic business advice and support to address issues and identify challenges.

With the right job strategy in place, we help senior executives deliver on it. Practical help we give includes:-

a. Developing presentational skills (including access to presentational, voice and image coaches) for maximum impact.

b. Interview preparation and practice, including the use of recorded TV footage, to ensure candidates have the right approach and mindset.

c. Practical guidance on CV production, proactive PR campaigns and access to boutique search support.

d. Monitoring and feedback on the execution of the job strategy, with KPIs and milestones to measure effectiveness.

e. Assistance with structuring business plan pitches, negotiating remuneration, preparation and coaching during the first 90 days in the new role to ensure successful transition.

Long-term employability means investing in oneself not only “on the job” but also in thinking ahead beyond the current role. So we go far further than others – typically our clients receive our ongoing professional support. They call on us whenever they need to resolve challenges that arise in their daily working lives and key career moments, with lifelong access to our network of business leaders. Similarly, the networks we help executives to build during their transition will serve them well over the remainder of their career. It is essential that their network understands their values and motivators and that personal brand is aligned to career aspirations.
