Gain a Sense of Direction and Purpose in Your Career

1-1 career coaching for mid-to-senior career professionals. 

Learn to plan your career strategically and transition into a new job, industry, or career with confidence.

Guided by experts:

  • Align your work with your current priorities in life.
  • Maximize your natural and gained skills.
  • Do work that’s personally meaningful.

You have a unique talent: a way to improve the world (purpose) + a skillset to do so.

When you bring your talent into the workplace not only do you help the team, company and their clients but yourself – as you become more alive, find your place in the world, spend our time doing something worth doing, and become fulfilled and successful (at work and at home).

Here are a few symptoms that you have kept your talent buried:

You lost the spark and joy in your job

You don’t have the same energy, motivation or excitement to wake up and go to work.

You struggle to plan on your own

Articles, books, videos, assessments – you've tried them all to find clarity, but without much success.

You’ve become bored, frustrated, or …

<<insert the negative feeling of the day>> with you job, team or company.

Your life has changed

And you job is now in conflict with your current priorities in life (family, growth, balance)

What makes us different?

We've been unfulfilled in our careers. We also know what it takes to find direction, plan and transition into a more purposeful and fulfilling career stage.

Our purpose is to help you find your talent

In The Aha! Moment Academy we do a different type of planning. We give you the tools to make the journey is as enjoyable as the destination. 

To the extent you use the tools, you will get the potential benefits. Below you have a breakdown of the 1) activities and 2) potential benefits:

Exploration 1: Truth and openness

What you’ll do: You will be guided through a set of exercises to access a new level of self-awareness, become more open and accepting of yourself and more objective in the way you perceive yourself and others.

Potential benefits when you practice using the tools:
  • You improve the relationship you have with yourself and others: you become kinder with yourself, a better friend, colleague, manager, partner, parent, etc.
  • You start to influence others with integrity and overcome habitual reactive patterns, thus becoming more able to navigate difficult relationships and challenging conversations
  • You clear out tensions and spend less time managing politics, overthinking, making unnecessary mistakes or being annoyed with people, and you spend more time on being productive, enjoying your relationships


The estimated financial benefit over 12 months:
£300 - £3,000
Client Example: Priyanka - was able to challenge her manager with integrity for the first time in her career and overcome years of being poorly managed. 

Exploration 2: Choice and decision making

What you’ll do: You will explore how much choice you have in your life by examining to what degree you can choose your emotions, behaviours, labels, reactions, beliefs, and career path.

Potential benefits when you practice using the tools:
  • Take control of aspects of your career and life which previously you didn't know you could have control over. These could include thoughts, emotions, reactions, and career paths.
  • Become less stressed, have more energy, become more productive, overcome hardships easier, and get to enjoy the ups and downs of life.
  • Stop using external solutions to make yourself feel better, such as alcohol, drugs, shopping, nights out, eating out, conflict, etc.

The estimated financial benefit over 12 months:
£300 - £1,000

Client Example: Brian - became more aware of the stories he created and his habitual reactions to challenging work conversations and was able to navigate them with more ease and less conflict.

Exploration 3: Get unstuck 

What you will do: You will understand why you're stuck in the same patterns of behaviours, emotions, perceptions, and learn how to overcome them practically.
Potential benefits when you practice using the tools:
  • Become aware of areas where you're behaving in ways that aren't in line with what you truly want and deserve, both at work and at home.
  • Learn to ask for what you want from others with integrity, such as setting healthy boundaries at work, pushing projects off your plate, asking for more autonomy and authority, and asking to be more included.
  • Create better work conditions and environments, and learn to cope with any challenges in the workplace. You will also feel more engaged at work, more alive, and in control over your work. You can improve your self-confidence and self-esteem by overcoming insecurities such as feeling not good enough, capable enough, important enough, likeable enough, etc.

The estimated financial benefit over 12 months:
£300 to £5,000

Client Example: Denise - transformed bad working relationships into positive ones and increased her self-esteem and self-confidence in the process through a series of conversations.

Exploration 4: Define who you are 

What you will do: Identify labels, defences, and characteristics that you picked up along the way that don't define you anymore, and learn to get in touch with your essence. This will help you redefine the kind of life you want to live before you decide what kind of work you want.

Potential benefits when you practice using the tools:
  • Gain confidence from the inside out, knowing that you can be whoever you want.
  • Stop being limited by your personality, labels, and beliefs that other people (including you) have stuck on you.
  • Avoid growing old with regrets (e.g., putting work before life).Become a better negotiator because you know what you want and aren't willing to settle for what you're offered.

The estimated financial benefit over 12 months:
£3,000 - £20,000

Client Example: Lucie - defined the life she wants to have, including how much flexibility she wants. As a result, she negotiated her new job offer by reducing her work days from 5 to 3 while maintaining her severance package.

Exploration 5: Clarify your work purpose

What you'll do: Understand why having a work purpose is beneficial, remember your work purpose, and have a sense of direction in your career.

Potential benefits when you practice using the tools:
  • Become more fulfilled, motivated, and determined in your work.
  • Fall in love with the concept of work and start looking forward to Monday mornings.
  • Stop searching for the ideal job and use that time to enjoy your work and the impact you're making.
The estimated financial benefit over 12 months:
£1,000 - £50,000

Example: Anne-Francoise - found a new sense of direction, drive, and motivation after defining her work purpose, which enabled her to reinvent herself after losing the spark in her career 20 years into her work.

  • Know exactly what skills you want to develop and what jobs/businesses will enable you to do that.
  • Save time: at least 1-5 years, by stopping the wastage of time going from one job to another without a clear direction in mind.
The estimated financial benefit over 12 months:£3,000 - £20,000

Example: Tom - was offered two jobs both in line with his previous experience. Because he had created a plan based on his work purpose, he was able to make the right decision to propel his career and fulfillment.
