Midlife career coaching and intergenerational team development
When people join an organisation, they don’t leave their age at the door. Today’s businesses often comprise staff from up to four generations – with different experiences and working styles. Our aim is to work among and across those generations (offering midlife career coaching and intergenerational team development) to ensure businesses capture the strengths of each.
COACHING INDIVIDUALS AND TEAMS
We help people develop in a role or job that they can feel passionate about. This is achieved through career coaching of individuals or a group of employees in an organisation in the UK or Continental Europe.
A WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE
I have over 25 years of international business experience including 15 years as a career coach helping many professionals reach their career goals. I specialise in midlife career coaching and have also developed a program supporting organisations to improve their intergenerational team performance.
OUR SERVICE BENEFITS
Our clients benefit from our practical, solution-based approach through which we motivate and inspire them towards their desired result. We are open, energetic, sensitive and respectful but also challenging where appropriate.
A healthy organisation will make sure their staff is challenged and exposed to new opportunities within that organisation. Looking at having four generations working within your organisation at the moment, especially the generations born after 1980 need to be challenged more frequently to keep them engaged. READ MORE
Your employees may have experienced a manager who told them what to do, a manager who demanded a work-life balance or an employee who was very keen on personal development. These are typical examples of how different generations require things at different points in their careers. It is therefore important for organisations to relate to all generations and at the same time bridge the gaps between them. READ MORE
Being a Generation X (born between 1966-1980) person myself, I have researched in detail the differences and similarities of each generation. I recognise the stigmas and prejudices that people of different generations experience working with older and younger colleagues which can cause a team to stagnate. Our interest is in re-setting viewpoints and re-energising teams and individuals to ensure strengths and not negatives are brought to the fore.

“Nicolette helped to improve my knowledge about how to make use of Linkedin in a more effective way. She was superb in using her skills as a coach to help me define clearly what I wanted to get out of social media and how I was going to do it. It was a pleasure working with her”.Reinaldo
