Many stay-at-home parents opt to return to work after their kids start school or leave the nest. You may be looking for a way to earn some money, use your talents, and do something meaningful with your time. But going back to work after an extended absence can be intimidating. You may struggle with self-confidence and worry about your ability to balance work and family life. You may also discover that in your time away, your interests and priorities have changed.
Inspire Growth provides professional, objective career assessment and counselling services to help you re-invent yourself as a professional and get back into the workforce with confidence and inspiration.
Get to Know Yourself
I use the leading career assessments to help you pinpoint your current career-related talents, skills, interests, aspirations and values. I then help you relate these aspects of your identity to careers that are likely to be a good fit for you and your overall life vision.
Expand Your Career Options
The world of work has changed greatly over the last few decades, such that there are more options today than ever before. I help you consider the full range of options available to you, including career fields you may not have considered.
Identify Your Transferable Knowledge and Skills
In the course of your life, you have gained some valuable knowledge, skills, and experience, either before you left the workforce or in the years that followed. I help you identify these strengths and build on them to develop your new career.
Create an Effective Action Plan
I help you set short-term and long-term career goals, and identify the specific steps you need to take to qualify for your new career. This includes pinpointing the education, training, and experience you need to update your resume and “test-drive” your new career path before committing to it.
Change can be scary, but you know what’s scarier? Allowing fear to stop you from growing, evolving, and progressing.
