New Taster Session Option

It is not always easy to explain coaching – it is better to experience it (and us) to understand it properly.

We have therefore introduced a 30 minute remote taster session. This takes place by phone or online by Skype or equivalent.

So if you want a no commitment way to try coaching, let us know. (For fees, see our fees page).

Brumpod Ep 14 – HS2

The confirmation or cancellation of HS2  will have an indirect effect on local employment  in the Midlands,but also directly  affect those who will work for it or in supporting industries.  Is it  worth the money? You decide.  Available on your  favourite  platform, but on Apple here.

Have you seen our new employability packages?

We have just introduced an employability assessment (Carrus). This measures the attributes which make people more attractive to employers, and produces a  report suggesting areas which can be developed. It is particularly useful for school and college leavers and new graduates, but can be used for all ages.

As the pace of change in the workplace accelerates, Carrus can help to future proof careers too.

Stop Lying About the Role

Successful job seekers often find that the job description they have been given is misleading. This article in the Harvard Business Review makes the point that this is detrimental because a disgruntled employee is unlikely to perform well. Additionally, it quickly becomes known on social media that this is an employer to avoid.

I would also say that the converse is true. A candidate who lies on their CV will not thrive, and quickly gain a reputation as someone not to recruit.
