Hey there, want some evidence on how easy it is to make a difference in your worklife today? Read on…….
Kelly was frustrated, bored and feeling let down by her employer. In her early 30’s, and like many professionals, Kelly had stopped learning and her role had become stale. She blamed her employer for not providing her with the opportunities for training and development and was considering a change in profession.
She knew she had been at this point before with a previous company and this time decided to see if she could do something about it herself rather than continue a cycle of job hopping
When she came to Purple Co for coaching Kelly was very clear about what she wanted:
- To start enjoying her work life again
- To be recognised for the value that she gave her company, and
- To become confident to say no to the tasks she simply no longer enjoyed (and had not enjoyed for years).
In our first coaching session Kelly clearly identified her passion for more learning opportunities and was able to articulate her desire to nurture and grow a team of young professionals. She also clearly defined some new boundaries for her work roles that she felt were reasonable given her skills and experience.
After just one powerful session Kelly was confident enough to arrange a meeting with her employer. For the first time she was able to articulate her concerns and her professional goals and ask if there were other opportunities for her within the company.
As a result of that meeting her employer realised that a highly valued employee had further potential and very quickly created an opportunity for her.
She was offered a temporary promotion as a Site Manager – a clinical role with strong team leadership development and operational responsibilities.
Since then, further coaching has assisted Kelly to grow in her operational and people management skills. Kelly has embraced the value of taking control of her own professional development and of building a life of continual learning.
