What the Program Entails...

Three Phases

The programme has been designed in three phases, each of which has been named after an inspiring quotation:

EXPLORE. DREAM. DISCOVER. 


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. 

Explore. Dream. Discover.
MARK TWAIN

 

We want you to be inspired to take up that challenge.
 

Explore Phase

The foundation of our programme entails a long, hard look at who you are.

This is the EXPLORE part of the programme.


Research shows that those who are most satisfied and motivated by their work are in careers which reflect who they really are: 

  • Careers which reflect their true nature and their real passions;

  • Careers which draw on their innate strengths, and;

  • Employ their favourite skills;

  • Careers which allow them to honour their deeply-held value.


You can't work out what you want
until you work out who you are.

BEN CROWE
 

During this phase, you’ll get a clear idea of:

  • Your values;

  • Your life purpose;

  • Your most powerful self;

  • Your personal strengths;

  • Your knowledge and interests;

  • Your personal achievements;

  • Everything you need in your life to be happy and fulfilled.


We start by gathering knowledge about you as a person, your life as a whole - your strengths, interests, life purpose, values and lots more.

The next layer on the foundation stone in the EXPLORE phase is about your work preferences - Job skills, achievement, ideal working life as a starting point.


Using two formats for capturing the vital information which EXPLORE is designed to elicit. These are the Life Canvas and Work Canvas.

These canvases will provide a richly coloured snapshot of who you are and what you need in order to be happy in your life and work. 
 

By the end of the EXPLORE phase, you will be very clear about what you must have in your career to be satisfied and motivated. The two Canvases act as the acid test for evaluating any career ideas or job opportunities. 
 

The Explore Phase is powerful enough to be completed on its own.

Dream Phase

The next phase is DREAM.

This is a very creative part of the programme when together we generate a number of possible new career choices.
We call it DREAM because the idea here is to be expansive, to think outside the box, not to be constrained at this stage by traditional notions of what’s possible. 

In truth, almost anything is possible if it’s right for you.
And we will deal with making it possible in the final phase, DISCOVER.

We will then explore the most attractive ideas in some detail and then finally narrow these down to between one and three strong possibilities which will then be explored in detail in the DISCOVER phase, which is the final part of the programme.

 

Discover Phase

DISCOVER is the point where we investigate the top possibility that was generated in the DREAM phase.
We will use a creative and empowering process which lets you turn your vision for an exciting career that’s right for you into a soundly based action plan to make it happen.

 

We develop a plan to build a bridge from where you are now, to achieve the vision you have for your future work life.

 

It takes courage to grown up

and become who you really are.

Your Ideas Bank

A parallel process will also be occurring during the program, you will open an Ideas Bank.

This is a space where you can capture any career possibilities which come up throughout the early weeks of the programme, including ideas that you may have in mind before beginning coaching.
Ready to be evaluated later in the light of what we find out about you during the first phase of the programme.
