Introducing another of our guest Bloggers; Nicholas Harrison a career strategist, published author and expert in helping Armed Forces personnel going through resettlement explains how the philosophy, Transperformance™, can help people who are experiencing a period of change in their lives.
We are regularly affected by transitions some being fundamentally ‘life-changing’. When such episodes occur, too many of us feel pressured into following the crowd, being told what to do, doing things that will keep other people happy, accepting second best or eventually giving up and accepting our lot. Such approaches to change in our lives are stressful and, if badly managed, can upset both our psychological and physical well-being.
The key to experiencing a successful transition out of the armed forces is to know who you are and to identify what it is you really want to do. After that, how you can secure the right role becomes easier. Unfortunately, many job-seekers find that when they seek professional help, the first question asked is often, ‘So, what do you want to do?’ and this is often the hardest question to answer…
Transperformance™ courses take a different approach to the more process driven, sheep-dip style of employment support where you are ‘told’ what to do. We will teach you how to realise, for yourself, your unique set of capabilities, and show you how to find out, again, for yourself, through effective networking and research, what roles would you be happiest and most fulfilled doing and how you can present yourself to give you the best chance to secure a new position. Three key steps, self-awareness, self-direction and self-presentation can make all the difference.
So, if you have ever asked yourself, who am I? Can I tell people what I do? Do I know what I want to do? Have I defined my goals? Can I ‘sell’ myself to a potential employer? Then email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask about Professional Development courses.
