What Clients have said about My Career Orientation Coaching Programme

After having worked mostly in my own business for the past decade, some new options had opened up and I felt it was time to make a well informed choice in regards to my career. I realised this was not something I could do on my own. I needed the help of an expert. Going through the My Career Orientation coaching programme was a transformational experience. Using her exceptional skills and insights, Sue Schoormans offered me tools to analyse my career from a new perspective. Getting to know my work related values and acknowledging my true strengths, proved extremely helpful. Sue challenged me to go beyond my inner blocks and come to terms with what I really enjoy doing. Sue is very knowledgeable and highly skilled, which shines through in the quality of her work. I give her my best recommendation and will continue to recommend her to my colleagues.          E, Iceland

If I were to describe my experience of SLS Orientations, it would be "forward". The 5-Step Career Orientation coaching programme enabled me to move from a lack of clarity on how to improve my career path to gaining more self-consciousness about myself and my professional objectives. Every question and activity throughout the coaching period have brought me further in the direction of my ideal job. I am now pleased to be starting soon a new opportunity which I recognise is an important step forward. I am thankful to Sue for the learning, the challenges and the valuable support received.          R, Belgium

Suddenly I was at a crossroads. My career had taken a turn which I had not foreseen. After several fantastic years in the same company, I was on my own. Should I apply for a job, and if so which one? Or maybe I should take the leap and establish my own business? Should I stay in the same country or find new horizons? How could I best use my skills to achieve professional happiness?  I knew Sue from a previous job and called her for advice, because I knew her to be intelligent, calm, kind and very knowledgeable about organisations and the job market. It was a fortunate coincidence that she was establishing SLS Orientations. I enrolled on her coaching programme which has taken me through a very rewarding but tough journey where I had to dig deep into myself to find answers to difficult questions and to unveil both potential and limitations. Following Sue's programme has represented solace and a safe place to analyse and understand my situation. The old crossroads is now water under the bridge and I know that I have taken the right decisions, they are already proving successful. Although less frequently, I will continue to use SLS Orientations as a sparring partner in future dilemmas or choices that might arise.      K, Norway

Sue took me through her career orientation coaching programme through late 2018 and early 2019.  I didn't really know what to expect but can honestly say I was absolutely blown away by the thoroughness of the programme and the depth of detail that was covered.  Sue's background in HR enabled her to gently and supportively probe what my values are and made me realise how important it was for me to express myself in my career in a constructive manner. I have since secured a role where I am able to work in a much more flexible way and bring my values to the role. Thank you Sue. A fabulous programme.      D, UK
