Six Months That Will Re-Launch Your Career.

This is a dynamic coaching and mentoring program specifically developed to help employees become far more effective and valuable in the workplace.

sling Step Up to The Career CatapultThe program has been developed in conjunction with a number of ex-public servants to merge the best of Life7‘s private sector leadership coaching with the needs and practices of the Australian Public Service.

The Career Catapult is suitable for anyone working in either the public service or medium to large enterprises that interact with the public sector.

This is not a ‘love in’ where everyone gets a certificate. In fact, there will be no certificates (who looks at them anyway!). This is a six month program that is firmly focused on results. As with all of our private sector clients, the only thing that counts is seeing each participant succeed in their chosen arena.

We expect to see each participant achieve a pay rise or promotion during or soon after completion of this program. Ultimately, we are striving for genuine success, and that is not simply limited to career success but also a demonstrated integration of career success with successful personal and family relationships and community involvement.

A Unique Professional Development Program

big step Step Up to The Career CatapultThis is a six month coaching and mentoring program that is tailored to the needs of each participant. You will have both a trainer and a personal coach throughout the six month period.

The program combines confidential personal coaching sessions with fortnightly small group training sessions that will include talks by experienced guest speakers.

There is homework, so you must be prepared to put the effort in if you want to get the results. Unlike many other courses, homework will often be different for each individual as a lot of it will be tailored to each participant’s needs.

There is no marking process. If you are successful you will attain recognition at work, through praise, promotion or  financial reward – and that is your ‘mark’, that is the ‘qualification’ that will continue to pay you for your effort every remaining day of your working life.

This is a genuine investment in your future.

The Process

We are here to guide you

The first step is to complete the application form. Candidates will be selected and grouped based on their experience and their career objectives. Ideally we would like to put small teams together that can collaborate well and develop as one. Success will rely on team cohesion as well as individual performance.

Selected applicants will be invited to attend an introductory question and answer session. If you are keen to proceed, final paperwork will be completed and your performance coaching will commence immediately.

You will complete a detailed evaluation to determine your strengths and weaknesses and undergo a two hour personal coaching session so we can clearly determine and agree on the personal development areas that will benefit you most.

Fortnightly small group training sessions will be held from 6pm to 8pm. These sessions will cover many subjects, such as:
