Looking for a Niche

Posted on 23. Apr, 2019 by in Blog

In 2005, I began to realise, after several years of general coaching practice, that many of my clients wanted to consider a change in career direction and that, despite my best efforts I struggled to help them over the finishing line, saboteurs managed, and practical steps in-hand, towards a new future at work. I found my answer when I trained as a Firework coach. The day after the intensive I started to claim one of my niches as a ‘career coach’ and haven’t regretted it for a second. I felt so much more confident and equipped to guide my clients as I coached them into a career transition. So much so, that in 2010 I started to train the programme myself with the wonderful Michelle Bayley, also an experienced CTI and Firework coach. So, if you’d like to work with clients on career change, but feel you want something extra to add to your coaching toolkit,  the Firework Career Coaching Programme gives you what you need. Co-created by two coaches, it’s a powerful framework and set of tools which also offers ICF CCE’s.
The next Firework Training Day will take place 4 June 2019 – to register your interest email us at bookings@fireworkcoaching.com

The programme runs over six months. The key events include:

  • An interactive training day in London
  • Two quarterly follow-up group mentoring calls to give you support on maximising the benefit of Firework in your coaching practice
  • Two optional online masterclasses, run by experienced Firework coaches, designed to help you confidently source a consistent set of clients for your career coaching practice

The programme will also provide you with:

  • A licence to use the programme with your clients, together with a badge to use on your website and materials
  • A detailed career coach’s manual and complete set of online white-labelled client materials ready for use with your clients
  • Access to all ongoing updates to the programme and materials
  • 11 ICF Continuing Coach Education Credits (CCEUs) for attending the training
  • Membership of the Licensed Firework Coaches LinkedIn community

This is an advanced programme for existing coaches

Here’s what one co-active coach has to say about Firework:

“I have discovered the most amazing resource. What I found unique about this toolkit is its flexibility. It allows you to build onyour original coaching skills and gives you an impactful array of strategies which you can use with your clients, helping them find meaningful careers. I found this course to be great value for money, considering the wealth of resources you get to take away. The location of the course was fantastic, and the resourceful and knowledgeable course presenters make the course engaging and an excellent investment. It was definitely time well spent. I would strongly recommend this course to any coach hoping to add to their portfolio.” Christine Alexander Smith, The Diversity Coaching Initiative

Firework’s reputation as a quality brand has grown over the years. We have trained and licensed Firework coaches in London, Brighton, Glasgow, Dublin and Chicago and Helsinki. In addition to the licence and CCE’s, the benefits of becoming a licensed Firework career coach include:

(a) Gaining a unique and powerful set of tried and tested tools which give you the confidence to work with both clients facing a major career crossroads and those who may simply want to take stock of their career and perhaps stay in their existing field.
(b) Equipping yourself to offer your services to a large pool of people. Research shows that up to 75% of people are unhappy in their work, making career coaching a sought after service, particularly as restructuring and redundancies continue.
(c) Advice on promotion in a follow up teleclass and a listing as a Firework Licensed Career coach on the Firework website.
