Rehab Career Session The goal is to support candidates in making informed decisions about their career development and trajectory, as well as offer various tools that they can use – CVs, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles – to meet those goals.   During the session: We will work together to create a clear path to find the kind of job you’ve always wanted. You’ll uncover the hidden challenges that may be sabotaging your success in your job search.

Understanding Start-Up Capital

Understanding Start-Up Capital

Finance for Non Financial Managers
You probably didn’t grow up dreaming of a career in accounting. But, I promise you if you don’t understand how the numbers work, you’re going to get yourself in trouble. What is the ROI of this project? If I increase my margins, what impact will it have on the bottom line? What is the break-even analysis for adding a new truck? If this all sounds like complicated financial speak, we are here to help. Many small businesses owners struggle because they aren’t comfortable analyzing and tracking their financials – there’s just not enough time in the day and there are too many other things to worry about. Anyone interested in building a stronger business needs to understand and use the information captured in financial statements.   Financial Literacy That’s where…

One size clearly does not fit all

One size clearly does not fit all

Training
We all have painfully sat through courses where the instructor “teaches” by reading the slides. The slides are text intensive and while lots of information is potentially conveyed, the participants don’t engage. Shortly, they have checked out. Checking emails and texts. Your precious training budget wasted. In a digital world, it seems almost counterproductive to schedule a physical training session.  We are all busy and couldn’t our time be better spent than trotting off to some training. There must be a book or online tool that can meet these objectives at a fraction of the cost and time.   Why Online Training Fails Multitasking competes for our attention. According to Gloria Mark, professor of informatics at University of California, Irvine, we are interrupted nearly every three minutes. Business books have surprisingly…

Job Search Strategies Over 40

Job Search Strategies Over 40

Career Coaching
Due to changes in the global economy, many executives are finding themselves back in the job market.  Is job seeking a young person's game? My answers are from my personal experience in Abu Dhabi. Yes, predominantly under 45. Above 45 those who have and are still being coached by me are not necessarily searching for new ''jobs''. They seek to find what they ''love'' or like to do or have been wanting to do all their lives.  Therefore, resulting in ''creating'' their own job. By choice? My clients - yes, however, according to many other coaches not necessarily by choice. Many who have either lost their jobs above the age of 45... tend to search for a job until they realize that they are not necessarily respected as they were…

Word of Mouth Opens Doors

Word of Mouth Opens Doors

Career Coaching
I have a two-year-old and fortunately, I have a killer babysitter - who we love, as does my daughter. A friend of mine was looking for a sitter and I referred our sitter. My friend met with the babysitter and hired her for the summer. She didn't interview anyone else, she went with my referral and was equally impressed with how quickly her daughter took to the sitter. My friend was at work and was mentioning the new sitter and how the summer arrangement was working out so well.  A co-worker overheard and asked if she could hire the sitter for the month of September.  "Don't you want to meet her? my friend asked.  "No - I know you and know you would only be happy with her if she…

Planning for GDPR

Planning for GDPR

Resources
The GDPR Plan: Getting Started Even though the implementation deadline for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is fast approaching (25 May 2018,) there are still many companies of all sizes who are not ready for it. As a consultant working in the area of project management, I approach almost everything as a project and recommend to my clients they do the same. The advantage of taking this approach is that it can take something seemingly insurmountable and decompose it into more manageable pieces. So, even with the looming deadline, start with a project charter, such as the following example, which includes, among other things: Statement of Work: Prepare the policies and procedures needed to abide by the GDPR… Target Schedule: by 25 May 2018 Target Budget: 200 staff…
