“A programme of Coaching each 3 to 4 weeks over an 8 month period has enabled me
to delegate well, enhance my communication so that I can get my message across better
and not take personally the rebuffs and put downs from my fellow directors. I now
work to live not live to work. I have changed my attitude to networking and feel
far more myself. As a result of all of this I am actually getting more responsibility
and respect from my co-directors who previously treated me like the naughty little
sister and I am enjoying the new challenges at work.”

Conflict with fellow directors and poor work life balance
You are probably reassessing how you were treated and the impact this has on your
views of yourself and life. Sometimes there are practical challenges like – “Where
am I going in my career?” Or “How do I find a new job and earn again?” “How can I
concentrate with this hanging over me?” Your mind is consumed with the conflict and
litigation process, the unfairness of the situation and all sorts of thoughts about
how the problem came about. There can be a loss of confidence, self esteem and motivation.
Bitterness or depression can set in.

Fiona helped her manage and balance her emotions, drew out her work motivations and
transferable skills, and helped her stay motivated and focused as she searched for

Ann’s boss gradually undermined her. Then started getting angry. After a shocking
shouting down in front of colleagues, which left her panicky, she saw her Dr and
took legal action. She knew what happened was wrong and she knew she had justice
on her side. However she underestimated the impact it had on her self esteem and
confidence. She thought searching for jobs from home would be easy but didn’t realise
how much she needed the buzz of people and the city (London).

Emotional after losing your job?
People who had put so much effort into their career or business and then lose it,

to them, shapes who we become”
Stepping Up To Challenges
Positive Psychology shows that happy people express their values and build on their
natural strengths and what better place to do this than through your career? When
there are challenges at work sometimes it’s because you are in the wrong role or
environment for you. If you are not growing and developing in your role it may be

Career coaching helps you understand your motivation and strengths so that you can
be the best you can be in your career, achieving the results you want and enjoying
your role. It's also about shaping your future to honour your unique values, skills
and aspirations and having energy for the rest of your life.
