Be Your Best: Springboard Coaching

Building candidate knowledge, skills & confidence to transition to new opportunities faster.

Who are you?

A senior manager or director ready to make the next ‘step change’ in your career and intent on presenting the very best version of you.

Your situation

  • You’ve had little investment in personal development, lack recent experience
    of recruitment processes and are keen to invest to improve your success in securing your next position.
  • You’ve got extensive experience at a senior level but lack the confidence & knowledge about how best to present that to potential employers.
  • You are frustrated that you often leave interviews feeling you could have done more/said things differently & that the potential employer didn’t see the very best version of you.
  • You struggle to articulate clearly the best examples of your skills & experience & relate them to this opportunity.
  • You lack self-awareness about your preferences as a leader, how you make decisions, how you deal with conflict & how you respond to change, stress & conflict.
  • You get all the way through a lengthy recruitment process to the final 2 and then get feedback that you’re appointable but keep getting pipped at the post.
  • You’ve never received professional, objective feedback & you’d really value a fresh perspective on how to bring the best version of yourself to the selection process.
  • You lack confidence to engage in a genuinely 2 way recruitment process & are concerned you might make a poor choice of role/organisation because you feel under pressure to find a job.
  • You feel very rusty & out of touch with the job market & need some input & support to get in the zone.

What would you rather have?

  • To feel satisfied that you have presented the best, authentic version of yourself in every recruitment process.
  • To be able to articulate your competence & experience in a confident, clear way that best showcases your skills & abilities.
    To feel in control as you step up into the next career move.
  • To learn more about your strengths & blindspots & how these impact you as a leader & to feel comfortable talking about them at interview.
  • To shift mindset from ‘it might be possible’ to it’s ‘definitely doable’.
  • To be open & authentic whilst inspiring confidence through your presence
    & gravitas.
  • To be confident you are making the right decision for this important next step.
  • To give employers confidence that they are making a great recruitment decision.
  • To be stretched out of your comfort zone into your learning zone & to have experienced both high support & high challenge.
  • All the information you need about values & culture so that you make an informed choice to accept or decline an offer.
  • Specific feedback to help grow your confidence & skills in performing at your best through the recruitment process.

Rae is an exceptional practitioner and master of her art. Her ability to get to grips with individual personal objectives – and understand these in the context of complex organisational/market behaviours – is truly outstanding. Rae will get beyond the brief and challenge you to think differently. I’d highly recommended Rae based on my own experience which has yielded very positive outcomes.
