ABOUT BIG OAK COACHING

Bypass What Everyone Else Is Doing

When you spend the majority of your waking hours at work – 100,000 hours over your adult lifetime – it is imperative to your wellbeing and career success to be happy in what you do. When you are in a fulfilling role that brings joy, you feel like you never have to work a day in your life.

With our help, Leaders & Professionals reconnect with what matters. And when they do, we help them identify their value and strengths, decipher the return on investment (ROI) they bring to an employer, confidently market their worth, bypass what everyone else is doing with a strategic career & job-search plan, and land a new position they love.

And without using underhanded tactics such as sensationalizing, bragging, wild claims… or applying for a gazillion jobs, blasting their resume into the black hole, or wasting hours trolling job boards.

Do Work That Matters

When you remain in a soul crushing job, it zaps your motivation and zest for life, your career goes nowhere, and you continue to be passed over or ignored for promotions and salary increases. And if you’re doing a career pivot toward a role that fits your passion & purpose, you feel beaten down before you’ve begun because no-one will interview you.

We fix all of that.

Our clients land jobs they love, feel valued, are paid what they’re worth, AND have a greater impact in their sphere of expertise.

Transition & Thrive In A Job You Love

BUT HERE'S THE TRUTH

We're Not For Everyone

3 Reasons Why You Should NOT Work With Us

s

01

Don't work with us if you want "easy"

Carving out a path to your dream job takes work. A lot of it. If you’re expecting us to do all the heavy lifting, we can’t help you.

We have a step-by-step, proven system that takes you from where you are now to where you want to be. We make the process enjoyable, fun and as simple as possible. While we make the path easier, it will not be easy. There is no such thing.

Success requires hard work and a committment to be decisive, resourceful and coachable. Our clients achieve success because they follow the process and smash through challenges, setbacks and fear.

02

Don't work with us if you NEED a job yesterday

If you’re driven by an economic need to urgently land a new job, we can’t help you.

Because urgently needing work means you settle. You settle for a job you don’t love.

To be in a role that brings you joy and fulfilment, it demands that you take the time and do the legwork before you even embark on your job search journey.

Our clients achieve success because they get crystal clear about themselves, their ideal job, their ideal working environment, their ideal industry and their ideal employer and more. Our clients land a job they love because they do the hard yards in defining their value proposition right from the get go. This is the vital first step when we work together… we then take your hand and help you with all the job search and marketing to transition into a new role, fast.  On average, our clients land a job they love within 10-90 days of an active job search campaign. But without this, you’ll take the slow road or settle.

Clarity is vital to position yourself as an expert, leverage your expertise, and be in a role you love that contributes to a career, not just any old job.

03

Don't work with us if you don't have a record of results

If you don’t have a track record of results, then we can’t help you.

To position yourself as an expert and command a higher salary, you need to prove ROI. We can’t help you look good if you can’t back it up. We’re career coaches, not magicians.

If you solve problems in a business, or you help a business succeed, or you’re in a project related role or KPI-driven role… as long as you’re doing something that achieves an outcome in some way – and one where you play a key role in achieving that outcome – then we can help. And yes, we can do that even if your results are in a different role or industry.

Are We A Good Fit?

Who We Work With

Executives. Managers. Consultants. Strategists. High-Level Professionals.  You seek a role within the private sector / commercial enterprise. You may be currently working in an NGO, government department, or ‘traditional’ education / health sector, but you MUST be wanting to transition out.

You consider yourself as a leader / professional who is purpose-driven and highly committed to your career. Whilst salary is a key factor, doing work you are passionate about – something that is etched on your heart – matters the most. You may know exactly what role you want to vie for, or that might be a a little fuzzy right now. But if you yearn to make a greater impact within a company and in your sphere of expertise whilst being true to your career vision, we can help you get crystal clear about your value proposition and career path, and help you secure more interviews, more job offers, and transition into a job you love.

You MUST be: Committed, Coachable, Decisive, Resourceful.

If that sounds like you, we invite you to a complimentary training where we take you through our process of landing a job you love, within a company you are proud to serve in, whilst being compensated at a salary you deserve. You’ll find the link below.
