Career Development and Transition
To help Deborah frame the next stage of her career direction, building on and consolidating previous experience while learning new skills as part of her continued professional development.
We provided Deborah with a range of interventions including strengths and emotional intelligence assessments, journaling and selected readings to help achieve her objectives. The short term objective was to work as an independent consultant; while her medium term objective was to be intentional in achieving her long term objective which was to run a theatre venue. We focused on helping Deborah hone specific leadership competencies in terms of soft skills and behaviours as opposed to technical and functional skills.
