5 steps to blast off your amazing new career

It’s not a rocket launch. You don’t need 76 steps leading up to blast off. You have easier options. Would you like to blast off your amazing new career? Let’s start the count down.

5. Do your safety checks.

You need to know what it is that you like (and more importantly don’t like) in your current role. If you understand your needs, you will have a safer transition into something better, not just something new.

4. Inspect your kit.

It is a good idea to have an idea of your strengths and key drivers if you want to align the things you love doing (and are great at) to your amazing new career. If you have some missing components, now it a good time to build up your kit.

3. Activate and test navigational systems.

It is essential to know your planned route to a clear destination. Without a goal and knowing the way to get there, you will only get lost. The world of work is vast – not as big as space – but still not where you want to be drifting aimless about.

2. Fuel up.

If you want a successful mission, having enough fuel and reserves to get to your destination is vital. Check your motivation levels, your determination, your resilience, your mental and physical strength. Any journey takes effort, so you need to be in peak condition.

1. Buckle up.

The engines are firing and you are about to launch. This means take-off is imminent. You need courage. You might need a change of pants. You need to actually do it now – past the point of no return. The reward for bravery and preparation…

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.
