"“I’ve been working with Caroline as I’ve stepped into a senior management role for the first time. I’ve found this to be a real step change and with a broader and more strategic portfolio of work. Caroline has helped me to challenge myself to think in a different way and develop strategies to gain confidence in my new role. I’ve come away from my sessions with Caroline with a renewed sense of motivation and clarity on how I can move forward. I’ve noticed in the past few weeks that I’ve been actively using some of the approaches we identified in the session and I am seeing a difference. I’m really grateful to Caroline for helping me to navigate this period of change and looking forward to my next session!”

THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH ME...
You're feeling a bit stuck right now and although I firmly believe you have the answers within you, sometimes the 'noise' of life gets in the way. But I can help you succeed in reaching career success and satisfaction, using my years of experience and qualifications, helping people do just that. Not only have I been working in Careers Guidance/Coaching and Development (L&D/OD in busy HR teams) for over 15 years, I also have various professional memberships, qualifications and accolades which help me in my work including:
Diplomas in Career Coaching, Career Guidance and Development.
ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management) certificate in Coaching.
Diploma in Learning and Development from the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development)
Psychometric profiling practitioner for Myers Briggs (MBTI) and Thomas International PPA (DISC theory) and TEIQ (Trait Emotional Intelligence Indicator).
Associate member of CIPD, member and on professional register of the CDI (Career Development Institute) and member of the ILM.
My work has been used as an example of best practice by the NfER (National Federation for Educational Research) and have been a finalist for the national Career Champion Award.
I have a full DBS check (children and adults) and signed up to the online checking service.
I follow the EMCC (European Mentoring & Coaching Council) competency framework and GCMA Global Code of Ethics in Coaching and Mentoring.
And most importantly, I really care. I've worked with lots of confused and overwhelmed individuals, actively listening to the challenges they face and supporting them in achieving a new plan and path to career success and satisfaction. Why not let me help you move forward, because if you don't make a change, you won't see any change. And if not now, then when?
"Receiving coaching from Caroline at the Talent Cycle has improved my mindset and productivity significantly. In the context of a series of friendly chats she has drawn out from me the actions I need to take to move my business forward rather than sitting in a quagmire of ideas and semi-plans. Caroline has helped me clarify my vision and objectives and helped me see for myself how to prioritise in order to make meaningful progress rather than struggling to keep on top of a never-ending 'to-do' list. Amongst other light-bulb moments I have redefined my niche market, clarified my marketing approach and set in motion an efficient plan to create an online aspect to my business.
Caroline listens attentively and asks pertinent questions that assured me she understood my business and me! There is no jargon or complicated methods to apply, just a straight-forward approach to help you\your business make realistic plans and actions, and of course, having such an approachable person to be accountable to has been very helpful too. As a sole-trader I was missing having someone invested in collaborating with me and the benefits of having done so have been many and varied and all very positive! I would recommend working with the Talent Cycle and look forward to continuing to do so myself."

I bet your head is spinning right now! One moment everything is fine, the next you've had an unexpected conversation where the life you trusted has taken a dramatic turn. I've been there myself and know what an emotional and practical upheaval it can be.
For some, this is a great opportunity to take the new career path you'd secretly dreamed of. But you weren't prepared for this right now and making big decisions feels particularly challenging at this moment. What if you choose the wrong thing? I can help coach you to gain clarity on your career goals and confidence in the path to get there.
For others, your confidence has been knocked and you just need to get a new job and fast. So you want some direct guidance and advice on exactly how to do that. This is something I can help with as well, using my years of experience to make sure you're putting forward winning applications and interviews.
You don’t want to waste time on failed job applications or picking the wrong job, so you need someone to guide you through the recruitment process quickly and successfully.
CAREER CHANGE AND DEVELOPMENT
You're feeling stuck, and with work being such a huge part of your life, it is not only draining, but taking over. It is making you question your decisions and even the brilliant skills and knowledge you have built up, so now you are even wondering if you could get another job. Whether you have outgrown your current role or wondering whether it was ever right for you and want a complete career change, to make the brave move you need a plan.
From working with clients and my own personal experience, I know how important it is that when you are thinking about a career move, you get this right. I can help you with planning for this, deciding what it is you actually want, and how to take (and sell!) your transferable skills and knowledge to get you there.
SO, WHAT NEXT?
However you'd like me to support you, the best first step is to get in touch. I can answer any questions you may have and we can even have a completely free of charge, no obligation, chat, so you can find out a bit more about me and how I can help.
So what are you waiting for? Let's get you that job you'll love.
