4 ways to tell if you are focused or flitting in your career change.

Deciding you want to change your career is just the start of the process. If you really want to change career, it will require focus to successfully transition. The following questions will help you determine whether your career change is focused or if you are just flitting without direction.

Do you have a mapped out strategic plan of HOW you are going to go through the stages of your career change?

  • Yes – you are focused.
  • No – you have a strong possibly of flitting directionless.

Are you clear about precisely the types of roles and opportunities that will really suit you and make you happy / fulfilled doing?

  • Yes – you are focused on the roles that align with your career drivers, so have confidence your choices of career change options will make you happy.
  • No – you are probably stumbling blindly with “choice overwhelm” because you are unclear about the types of roles you should be focusing on.

Can you accurately identify your current strengths and skill-set, understanding which are the most valuable transferable skills associated with new roles?

  • Yes – you have a clear focus on how to re-market yourself to align with your change of career.
  • No – you are flitting if you cannot align your existing skills with a new career change.

Are you taking incremental steps of progress to move your career change forward in a tangible direction?

  • Yes – you have focused step-by-step action that is leading you directly to your new role.
  • No – you are probably feeling lost or stuck in this process and flitting from being overwhelmed to procrastination, going nowhere fast.

How did YOU do?

  • Focused? Congratulations, you are well on your way to a successful change of career.
  • Flitting? You need help to get your career change on track if you are serious about it.

I first worked with Will whilst I was a junior member of a teaching team. I worked closely with him for around three years and he became a true mentor to me. During this time Will helped encourage me to discover my own leadership style and he mapped out what it takes to be successful. I highly recommend Will for life and career coaching.

Will is a professional, natural leader who manages to make you feel at ease. He manages to be both emphatic and encouraging, whilst also managing to challenge you to find your own answers. Will’s approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. Working with Will has allowed me to address challenges I was facing and he brought a wealth of resources and practical tools to help me set goals, clarify my values, and explore avenues right away. Even though I left teaching 5 years ago, I still seek out Will for his help and guidance and I appreciate his versatility as a thought partner, ally, and coach. Our sessions are always productive and efficiently run, which is perfect for someone who is juggling many priorities! Will brings great communication, professionalism and quality to his work and I highly recommend him as a life/business coach.

Will at Mapleleaf vision fitted me in for a last minute decision-making session that I needed to make ASAP re. a job offer / career change. He was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff! He unpicked things that I could never have done on my own. I’m so grateful to him & will be highly recommending him to everyone! Where there is a ‘Will’, there’s a way! Thank you, Will. You truly have a gift.
