Having been a business owner for most of my working life, the tailored one on one career management program that [Consultant] facilitated has allowed me to establish exactly what my value proposition is, and to clearly articulate that. I cannot recommend [Consultant] highly enough for her ability to drill down into what is relevant from a personal skillset perspective, and for her access to an available network to allow me to reality check this proposition.
[Consultant] had a significant impact on my career. I was referred to her because I was told she was the best in the business. She certainly lived up to her reputation. Two career jumps in 12 months speaks for itself. One of the key factors is following her material to the letter and persisting with the changes to your presentation.
With 6 months of guidance from your consultant, i regained my lost confidence and was able to move into the most interesting and varied of business opportunities, enhancing and developing knowledge and skills from my earlier business. Thanks for clearing my head ad giving me the confidence to move forward.
Career Management Group has been integral to the success of my transition from corporate to my own business. I would not be without the expertise, support, friendship and advice that has lifted my skills and knowledge to the next level and beyond so that I can successfully navigate all the new challenges and opportunities in my path.
Career Management Group have brought clarity to the vision of where I want to be and how do I get there. I didn’t realise how short the journey could be until they provided the right focus. Helping people to understand how to pull together their own personal package of strengths and competencies to contribute to the leadership group is an area where Career Management Group excel. They have a range of people and tools to allow you to find new skills as well as methods of converting past experiences into deployable knowledge to assist with growth. Working with (consultant) has been a joint process where outcomes are agreed and then delivered. It hreally has been that simple and the only variable has been the timeframe to reach the goal and that is tailored to match your own intensity and desire to succeed. It has been fun, it works and I really have valued the help. Thanks
While (my organisation) invested in me, as an individual, the learnings and materials I’ve got from the Career Management Group programme have allowed me to reinvest the businesses time and money many times over. The variety of thinking and material I now have to share with my team, in their own career discussions, has increased substantially. As a result, the level of satisfaction I believe my team are getting out of their own career development discussions has increased manyfold, making my life as a manager easier and enabling me to do far more justice to the people that work their socks off for TB and their team every day!
My coaching program with Career Management Group has made me more confident and skilled in my approach to working both with my team and my key customers, enabling me to improve customer engagement, influence key stakeholders and provided a toolkit to better manage the team and their development.
I found your energy and drive to be infectious, highly motivating and sometimes a bit humbling. I know first hand from people that I have referred to you and Career Management Group, that you had the same approach to helping them with their issues.
Your timely advice, practical and simple strategies and supreme confidence in my ability led me firstly to believe that I was capable of moving into a role managing a team on 19 senior project managers and second to be successful in obtaining the position. I am immensely grateful to you for helping me re-inflate and for inspiring me to move forward into a managerial role the likes of which i had only hitherto dreamed of securing.
I have moved into a role that gives me scope, creativity, and above all a great deal of self esteem. Without Career Management Group, I would never have got there. You gave me the direction and confidence I needed in order to help me achieve…for that I thank you!
I believe that your methodology of assessments and discussions before developing a portfolio was extremely valuable. Probably the single greatest element of your help was a genuine understanding and empathy with the different emotions I was experiencing. Your years of experience and professionalism shone through! Now that i have experienced your firm’s level of service first hand, I am sure that I will have the opportunity in my future roles to call on your service again. I appreciate the genuine interest you have shown me.
I’ve come a long way since our first meeting. It’s like I am a different person. A person I am a lot more comfortable with. Thank you for your support, encouragement and guidance. I’ve got my sense of humour and perspective back and the year ahead looks very exciting.
I was warned you would much me hard, but it felt more like firm encouragement.
[Consultant] has been an excellent outplacement consultant for me at CEO level. Her approach is individual and tailored, bringing out the best in her clients. She is knowledgeable and supportive, providing encouragement and direction when needed. Amanda is very dedicated, and has spent a lot of time on me personally, and I would highly recommend her services.
I was lucky enough to get an outplacement position with Career Management Group, which was tailored to offer me some much needed mentoring into the bargain. I learnt so much about myself and received very timely advice as I was stepping into a new phase of my career.
My experience with Career Management Group was such an incredibly positive one and my only disappointment was not to have had access to a similar service 10 years earlier! As a time when my self esteem can take something of a battering, dealing with Career Management Group was all good – from the very first greeting when i walked in the front door/ I am particularly grateful to (consultant) for guiding me in my job search process, helping me to develop a killer resume and prompting me to consider what aspects of a job re really important to me.
I look back on the past year and cannot imagine where I was this time last year The opportunity to participate in your program has been so important to me and I know I would not be where I am now without all the support that you have given me. I now have my freedom, satisfaction that I am doing something worthwhile, and work that I actually enjoy every day.
During what has been my business unit’s toughest year yet, you have shown me different ways of managing challenging situations, though being open and willing to share your own experiences which is truly appreciated. In the past 12 months you have helped us reshape our contact centre leadership group and strategic direction and through the Career Management Group training programs we have now decided better ways of working together within our teams.
Working with (consultant) from Career Management Group has enabled me to clearly identify my professional strengths and attributes, and determine how best to leverage these in my employment and the market. I would highly recommend this activity for anyone seeking to progress in their career or alternatively to find the right workalike balance.
Of all the external providers I deal with (and there are many) I have never, in my whole history of my career received so much fantastic feedback about one supplier. These are all people you and your team have dealt with at XXXXXX over the past 5 year period. I have also never received one ounce of negative feedback and I really think this symbolises your passion and integrity which is a fantastic achievement of your success.
You are one of the most professional operators that I’ve met and your no fuss “let us take care of it for you” approach has been of most excellent assistance to the business that i have been with.
[Consultant] has provided our organisation with excellent support and advice, particularly when managing challenging situations. She has shown us considerable flexibility to expertly support both business and individual’s needs.
I find Amanda to have an infectious optimism. She is very engaging with an ability to build trust quickly with others that is second to none.
DB. 33yo was an IT programmer who was unhappy in her job. The organisation and DB decided it was in everyones best interest that she move out of the role and out of the company. She was provided with an individual program, working with a CMG consultant. Outcome was that DB is now a qualified workplace trainer, consulting to a number of well known and respected training organisations, loving her work, earning more than in her previous role and enjoying some time freedom. (ENTP)
PS, 35yo was a chemical engineer, worked with his organisation for over 15 years. He had no experience in the job market and was shocked by the redundancy. He was supported through the process, enjoyed the self assessment program and moved with his family interstate after securing a perfect role that needed his unique skills and experience. His career transition lasted 4 months, and the move interstate, back to his wider family network was our particular goal given his young family;s needs for additional support.
