midlife career change

Jason - Finance, Surrey, 40s

"I thought the workshop was very thought-provoking, and reassuring in many ways - that making what seems a large 'leap of faith' can be done in smaller steps over a period of time. 

Lucia is an engaging speaker and the amount of information provided was just right for the evening, to allow people to reflect, take some ideas away, explore a bit themselves and potentially come back for more guidance."

I was going to wait until my 60s to do what I loved but after working with Lucia I decided to just crack on with it.

After my time with Lucia, I decided to stop doing what society had been telling me I should be doing and start doing what I really wanted to do.  Her “superpowers” session had a huge impact on me.  Somehow, she could not only accurately see my strengths but helped me value them from a completely different angle.

Lucia has a very engaging, insightful and professional approach which put me at ease and ensured there was mutual trust from the outset.  She was pivotal in helping me to challenge many preconceptions about myself and to gain a greater appreciation of what really matters in life.

By helping me to identify my “Superpowers”, she unlocked some fundamental insights into my natural skillsets and the extent to which they were being utilised (or not) in my chosen career.  I am now far more aware of the importance of using those natural skills in order to deliver greater work and life happiness.  As a direct result of Lucia’s guidance and counsel, they are at the forefront of my plans as I move into the next stage of my work life.

"By the time I had been introduced to Lucia, I'd felt stuck for quite a few years and had begun to feel that work was sucking the life out of me.  I read her "50 year old corporate toast" article and it was like a lightning bolt had hit. 

I thought more about my career and my future than I've done for decades, possibly ever!   As a result of our time together I have designed a very exciting new plan for the last decade of my career but one which could last much longer if I'd like it to.   I'm still working in my old career but making lifestyle changes to get my new business idea off the ground over the 6 months or so." 

Alex - Finance, Berkshire, 40s

The time I spent with Lucia was insightful, enlightening, motivating and fun.   She really helped me to understand what I really want rather than what I thought I wanted.  As a result of working with Lucia, I got great detailed insights into my own strengths, what specific type of career is most suited to me and how to go about achieving it.

I have been dealing with work stress which has been spilling into my weekends but since working with Lucia and doing some of her exercises, Sunday afternoons have been so much more relaxing.   I definitely have a higher degree of self-awareness and during our sessions I was able to think through lots of possible options and ideas that I may not have come up with myself.

 

 

Howard - Law, London, 50s

Over a 6 month period, I went having hundreds of ideas about my future career to choosing the one that fits most closely with my newly-discovered but long-held unique strengths.  Lucia reversed the way I think about work and I feel excited about how much more enjoyable my future work could be.  Now it's up to me to take action and make it happen.
