If you are unhappy with your work, let me help you do something about it.  Unhappy with:  

  • Your rate of progress and your results?
  • Not making enough of your potential and capabilities?
  • The quality of your working relationships?
  • How much you get done in a day and the quality of that work?
  • Your career direction or lack thereof?
  • Feeling stuck or unable to take action?
  • The way that running your own business seems to be running you into the ground?

Never continue in a job you don’t enjoy. If you’re happy in what you’re doing, you’ll like yourself, you’ll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined”. – Johnny Carson

When we are happy at work, we can bring our best selves to it.  We have more resilience and presence, creativity and flexibility, time for ourselves and others at home and work.  We are more effective leaders and team mates.  Unfortunately, most of us are just ploughing on; over thinking, over reacting and overworking ourselves.  This reflects on our family life and our results at work.  Why do we go on like that?  Because:

“You can’t see the label from the inside of the jar”

This is where I come in.  Change can be tricky.  It’s a step into the unknown. However modest or obvious they are, solutions and possibilities are difficult to spot when you are in the thick of it.  Even when we know what to do, we don’t always know how or feel able to make the move.  I am here to give you:

Clarity:  on what’s going on where you are right now , what you really want from working life and what’s stopped you until now.

Courage:  to make the changes necessary in your thoughts, beliefs and actions; to get out of your own way.

Commitment: to keep going, learning from your experiences, celebrating your successes and growing in confidence and build momentum.

So you can be your way to a happier, more meaningful and productive working life that fits with your strengths, values and and goals for life.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT THE CHANGE AGENT

“Warm, charming and honest, Shirley is a truly lovely person to work with. The help she offers is worth every penny.”

You played a key role in me obtaining my new job. I knew my previous role was not the right one for me but you helped to identify what I required from a job to be fulfilled, what motivates me. Your assistance with interview preparation and technique was brilliant and allowed me to feel calm and confident for my interview. I am truly grateful for the support and encouragement you have given me.

Overall, I found the process very helpful, supportive and insightful. When I first came to you, I knew partly what I didn’t want from a job/career, but was unclear on what I did want. The sessions provided a platform to discuss my thoughts, ideas and jumbled views in a supportive, professional and totally confidential environment. I was at ease from the first few minutes and knew I could talk in total confidence and trust.
