Needs

INDEPENDENCE

“I want to go independent, but I’m not sure what I should do.”

We work with you to create clarity about what you want, why you want it and then identify what you should do to get there.  We explore your talents and how you can tap into your passions to find roles that “light you up”. We help you navigate your options and select the best course of action to move forward.

CONFIDENCE

“I know I’m good at what I do, but not sure if I could go independent.”

We help you clearly define and articulate what your unique talent and contribution is.  Although you’re not running a formal business, you do own a business.  People buy “you” – and you have to become adept at marketing yourself because you do it every new contract.  We help you create clarity and certainty when you talk about your skills and the contribution you make to potential projects.

FULFILMENT

“I feel like there’s ‘more to this’.  I want to make a positive impact with my professional skills.”

As professionals we gain skills and stature and many of us want to use the success to make a difference.  Our programmes help you pinpoint the difference you’re keen to make, and pathways for leveraging your success to have the impact you always wanted. As a contractor, you are uniquely position to select your projects, and we can help you determine the strategies to do that effectively.
