Your head-bone’s connected to your windscreen-bone – you risk driving, but not to find a better job!

Every day you get into a metal box on wheels and are happy to be propelled from 0-60mph in seconds.

A million obstacles can get in your way.

A trillion things could happen to make your trip go disastrously wrong.

Nevertheless, you still climb into your vehicle and make the trip.

Even though the only thing to stop your head-bone connecting to your windscreen-bone, whilst your foot-bone’s connected to your brake-bone is a 47mm wide strip of fabric.

Yes, I have measured the width of a seat-belt for your benefit.

And yet when it comes to changing your job to something better, you believe you are too afraid to take risks? Seriously?

You leap into a car to start your journey without the slightest concern that whilst being catapulted at great speed along a road filled with obstacles, threats and challenges, the only thing that is keeping you from serious hard is a thin bit of cloth. And you think you are risk adverse!

So, what is the difference between a car journey and changing your job to something better?

Not much actually.

You know that the car industry has taken necessary measures to ensure the risks are controlled. They fit cars with seat-belts. They enhance the braking systems. They use crash-test dummies in simulators to understand the impact of risk and put protective measures in place to keep you as safe as possible.

Coaching is no different. A career coach is like a crash-test dummies. I have gone through the windscreen at speed, so you don’t have to! I have tested the mechanics of a career change, understand the impact, and put protective measures in place. I have used that information to expertly design programmes that lead you on the smoothest path.

I am your co-driver by your side in case you come up against an obstacle. And with a career coach as your guide, your journey to your dream-goal destination is safe.

Don’t be a dummy and set off without a seat-belt.

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.
