I am very excited to be able to announce the release of my first career coaching book, ‘The Tea Model: Slowing down in a fast-paced world to find the career you love’.
When I first set up my business, one of my dreams was to write a coaching book to help individuals find the career they love. The dream remained a dream while I spent time designing and developing my career coaching programme through coaching 100’s of individuals over the last 10 years. In 2019 my dream to write a book became a goal, a goal which has now been achieved and I want to be able to give you a brief insight into my book in this article.
First of all I want to ask you three questions….
Are you struggling to achieve a good work-life balance as you attempt to navigate the increasing demands and complexity of the world of work?
Are you struggling with that Monday morning feeling?
Are you wondering whether a career change is right for you, or wishing to return to work after a break, and searching endlessly on the internet for the answer?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions then my book will help and guide you to create a career that suits you and makes you happy.
I know that navigating the fast-paced world of careers is becoming increasingly complex and deciding on the best-suited career path can be challenging. You may be mid-career and struggling to decide on your next steps. You may be feeling really stressed at work and confused about what the future holds. You may have been made redundant or are returning to work after a break and unsure of the options available to you. Your struggles and challenges will be unique to you, and it is important that you get the right help and guidance that supports your needs as well as helps you to create a career that you will not only enjoy but also fits comfortably with all aspects of your life.
The Tea Model provides this help through a simple 3 stage process.
- Time to Think
- Time to Explore
- Time to Act
It helps you to navigate the fast-paced and complex world of careers and reduce feelings of frustration, dissatisfaction and stress by enabling you to reassess what you want to be by focusing on who you are, rather than on what you think you should be, and creating the career you desire.
In Stage 1 you will focus on the most important person in this process (you!). This stage will help you to overcome any negativity that you may be feeling, develop a positive approach to your job search and establish a thorough understanding of your skills, aspirations, values and motivations to ensure you find the best career for you. Stage 2 will take you through the process of pursuing a detailed exploration of career opportunities and realistic options so that in Stage 3 you can ultimately make the best decision regarding your future career and create a detailed action plan to develop your chosen path. There are activities for you to complete and guidance to follow within each stage to enable you to maintain motivation and get the most from your career search.
Whether you are wanting to make a career change, review the suitability of your current job or find a new job, I have used this approach for many years within my career coaching programmes and it works.
My programme has enabled many individuals to pursue satisfying and fulfilling careers leaving them feeling happy, motivated and fulfilled and it is now time for me to share it with you too.
