Career Management - Managing Career Transitions

Career Management“The wheel of fortune turns round incessantly and who can say, ‘I shall today be uppermost’.” - Confucius.

It is estimated that about 50% of managers experience career derailment or fail to achieve their true potential. Some of the causes will be unavoidable circumstances but many problems could be foreseen, prepared for and avoided.

JQA provide confidential professional support for people who need career coaching to unleash their potential or make complex career choices.

The challenge

The word “career” implies a graded progression of jobs following in a logical pattern. Life in modern organisations is not that simple or straight forward. Many talented people want to make progress but do not know how to prioritise areas for development. They do not feel in control or fully understand their strengths and weaknesses.
