Do you hang up half your personality with your jacket when you get to work? Feel like jumping ship, but not sure where the exit is?
No matter where you are in your career, you can find an alternate career path that inspires you, instead of reluctantly dragging yourself out of bed every morning. If you’re dreaming about escaping corporate life in order to start your own business, we can help you do that, too.
With the support of an experienced coach, the WorkInColour Escape Hatch program provides you with creative tools and exercises to identify your strengths, skills, values and goals and help you create a clear picture of your ideal career. Then we use results-oriented techniques and practical advice to help you craft a plan to get there.
Through private coaching, an interactive workbook and ongoing support, you will develop the confidence to change your path and to work through your individual challenges.
The Escape Hatch program is a no-nonsense approach to developing a career or business that inspires you every day.
You can also develop your Escape Hatch program further, by adding one of our formal assessment tools. We use three structured tools - Highlands Abilities Battery, the Q12 instrument and StrengthScope. In different ways, they allow you to clarify your strengths and define your abilities (and there may be some you haven’t even thought of), not to mention working out what drives your behavior. This will not only give you a better understanding of yourself, but help you find the ideal next career. If you’re interested, we can help you decide which one’s right for you.
Starting your own business can be a satisfying way to take control of your career. You’ll be in charge, you’ll be doing what you love and you’ll be working with clients that you truly believe in. You’ll be following your dream! You’ll be working from your beach house and have time for afternoon naps! Right? Well, maybe (and good luck with the beach house). But you might also be sitting at your desk, terrified that you’ve taken the big risk of your career. And wondering if it was worth it.
We can help you work out what you need to do to start your new business, how to get your head around the planning and risks, and how to channel that heady mix of fear and excitement into useful fuel for your new business.
