Hello! I'm Briony
When I was five years old, I didn’t have the foggiest idea what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I didn’t know at 18 either, or at 25 or at 35.
I've always envied those people who seemed to have a clear vision of what they wanted to do with their lives and what their career trajectory would look like.
Today, a few decades later, I am finally sure that I want to help graduate professionals:
invest in the business of being themselves,
acquire the skills necessary to identify and overcome their career derailers, and
navigate their career transitions when the time comes.
So often we get caught up in the fear and failure.
We get stuck in the "I'm not good enough", "I should be better at this", "I must be an idiot if I can't get this right", and talk ourselves out of doing the work that gets us past the fear and into the learning, growth and confidence.
There was a time in my career when I knew those feelings well. For a long time, I thought that was just the way it was supposed to be! Thankfully I figured out, with a lot of help along the way, including investment in my own career coaching, that it didn't have to be like that.
What I learned along the way is that when you are making a transition in your career - whether you are starting out, stepping up, moving on, it can be exciting and overwhelming at the same time, and it can feel like you need someone to brainstorm with, to talk to without being judged or told what to do, to hold your hand while you build your competence and confidence for change.
Here's how I can help you...
Are you the CEO of your career?
You are the CEO of your career when you know that you are the decision maker in your professional life and you manage your career like a business.
You are proactive, intentional and purposeful in your actions, your words and your decisions. You are curious, a life long learner, resilient and adaptable to change. You have a clear relationship with your articulated values. You know who your stakeholders are and you nurture your relationships with them.
You are strategic in your decision making and seek out opportunities for your growth and development. You hone your knowledge, skills and experience to build your competence for the career you are developing. You surround yourself with your personal board of directors, and you actively seek to serve and reciprocate in the careers of others.
For the last two years, I have been developing content to help my clients manage their careers like a business.
Now I want to make that content more widely available and I have decided to do that through the format of an online coaching course called:
CEO of My Career
This 10-part course is currently in development and modules are becoming available for beta testing in 2019.
This course stems from my 20-year career, a lot of successes, and some failures, loads of learning, a career change, and a lot of self-reflection!
