The Alternative Career Online Retreat

Navigate Your Career Pivotal Moments And Answer Their Call.  

A 7 Step Transformational Journey To Get Back On Course

Starting 14th NOVEMBER, 2018

You Are Successful, But ...

You have been busy climbing the career ladder or building your business, but you don't feel the level of fulfilment you expected

You have been ticking the boxes of external success.  But you  have this nagging feeling that something is not quite right.  You just don't know what.

You feel confused and lost.  You wonder 'Is this it?'

You keep pushing that feeling down. You keep going.  Maybe it will just go away.  But you just feel more and more lost and exhausted by it all.

Deep down you know you yearn for more.  But more what exactly?

This is what I call a Career Pivotal Moment... When you are successful on the outside, but you feel that something is missing on the inside.

Let Me Help You Find What Is Missing...

You wonder...maybe you should change jobs, start your own business, work for a charity, study something new or take a sabbatical. But that all seems scary.  And you are not sure whether it will really fix the problem.

You look at what is going on in the world.  You daydream about doing something more meaningful.  But you don't know what you would do nor how to still pay the bills.

In this programme, I guide you to navigate your career pivotal moments and answer their call.

I help you find what is missing.  

I guide you to understand what that nagging feeling is really about.  So that you can get back on the right track and find a next step that feels on purpose.  

Isn't it time you knew what really needs to change?

Hi, I am Louise

I help leaders who are at career pivotal moments find their real purpose and step into their true leadership.

I support you to understand what these pivotal moments really are about, hear their message and answer their call.

I have 17 years experience in Leadership, Career and Talent Development - in global multinationals, social enterprises and humanitarian organisations.  

I am a regular Facilitator on Acceleration Programmes and Retreats for high potential leaders, internal change agents and social entrepreneurs.  

My passion is to guide deep transformational journeys for leaders and support them in creating meaningful work and having a positive impact.

I was recognised through the ICF Prism Award for outstanding coaching.

What You Are Experiencing Is A Career Pivotal Moment.

I experienced my pivotal moment 19 years ago.  I was a lawyer in a prestigious firm in the City of London.  A high potential, I was busy ticking all the boxes of success.  My secret was that every morning going into work I wanted to cry and I had no idea why.  I was successful, but something was missing.

I set out on a course to change that.  So I tried all the things we usually think about... I changed career, I learnt to meditate, I took a sabbatical, I went to Peru and India, I studied with shamans and different spiritual teachers, I set up my own business, I did a lot of yoga, I embraced the whole 'lifestyle' business thing and lived in a ski resort, I helped set up a social enterprise and I relocated to a different country.

I was successful at all these adventures and I enjoyed doing them!

But I didn't have a map.  So it took me a while to understand what pivotal moments are actually about.  And how to really navigate them.

This is what I learnt through my own journey and supporting over a thousand leaders in taking their right next step...

Pivotal moments are a wake up call.  

They call you to a new level of purpose and leadership.

They ask that you remember who you are meant to be. 

Pivotal moments are not about just taking on another job.  

They are an inside job.  

They rattle your cage.

They demand transformation.  

They call you back to your true path.  They ask that you realign to your real potential. They challenge you to contribute real value as you.

The difficulty is that you were not trained for personal evolution.  

I help you bridge that gap.



We dive deep into what this Career Pivotal Moment is about...

Pivotal moments are calling you to a new level of potential, real purpose and true leadership. We dig into what is really going on under the surface and what wants to emerge.

We explore what this new level of potential is really about. And what are the right next steps to create your next level of meaningful work and right impact.  What that means in practice is:

Dig deeper:  You dig deeper into what aspect of potential wants to emerge and what is blocking it.  Pivotal moments are usually about reconnecting to a part of you.  So we explore together which part of you is trying to get your attention and what is in the way.

Define your next level:  Here you define what it means in practice to integrate that aspect of potential back into your work.  What changes do you need to make?  What new things do you need to learn? How do you need to relate to yourself differently?

Catalyse your transition:   You get clear on your true next step.  You look at what is the right thing to focus.  You get clear on how to show up and position yourself in the right way.

"In our sessions, Louise guided me to the gifts with which I was born and patiently, gently and lovingly helped me to unwrap, understand and accept those gifts.

I cannot thank her enough for helping me to bring hope, light and meaning back into my life."

Our Journey Together

This is what we will cover together...

Module 1:  Reconnect to yourself

The current way of working disconnects us from ourselves.  We race to the top believing that when we get there we will be fulfilled.  But on the way you stop listening to what makes you happy and has meaning.  You loose yourself in the chase for success.  As a result you can’t access your internal compass as to what is right for you.  Ultimately you end up of course.

In this module you reactivate your internal guidance system.  So that you can to listen inside in a new way.  Before you can make plans, you have to be able to hear your internal voice.  What does it want you to know?


Module 2: Understand what is missing

At a pivotal moment, you feel successful, but that something is missing.  What is actually missing is you.  Or more accurately a part of your potential that you are currently not accessing.  

In this module, we look underneath the surface - you explore what is currently blocking your next level of potential.  And clarify what is the internal shift you actually need to make.


Module 3: Remember who you really are

Pivotal moments are calling you to express a new level of potential, purpose and leadership. It is about accessing your unique contribution and from there creating more meaningful work. Sometimes however you have forgotten what your true innate potential really is.

In this module, you reconnect to and map out this next level of potential.  So that you can see it more clearly. It is time you accessed your real gifts.


Module 4: Reintegrate your potential

Often career shifts seem like a leap of faith which is scary.  So we create safety by reframing what it really takes.  Meaningful work comes from creating work that is aligned to your real potential.  It calls you to touch the world with your unique presence.  It is not so much about location - working in an NGO or having your own business.  It is more about learning to show up in a new way

In this module, you explore how you can already start to bring your true potential into your life.   You start to build the muscle of showing up as you in small incremental steps.  How can you introduce a new level of flow where you are right now?


Module 5: Define your new work

A big block to answering the call of our pivotal moment is our fear that we can’t have meaning and pay the bills.  

In this module, you get practical.  You explore the options of what your new work could look like. So that it can be the springboard to more purpose and a new level of fulfilling contribution. 


Module 6: Catalyse your alternative career 

Next you focus on making it real. Evolving your work is not a linear process.  What it takes is showing up in an aligned way.  A key aspect of that is positioning yourself in a new way.

In this module, you look at the concrete actions that will make the difference.  What are you going to do to catalyse your next level of work? Do you need to learn new things? Who will be your new allies?  How will you present yourself and communicate in the right way?


Module 7:  Stay on purpose

We often think of purpose as a destination.  But how about if instead it was a way of travelling?  Your true work and life emerges from showing up in an aligned way.  Not just once in your life but every day.

In this module, you engage in the deeper call of pivotal moments which is to become a conscious change maker.  You learn the 3 pillars of Positive Energy Leadership:  Energy, Purpose and Partnership.  And how to use it as a roadmap for sustaining purpose and true leadership.
