Blue Diamond – Empowering you to take control of work & life

Are you looking to do something different?

Are you looking to do something different?

Realistically, most of us will be working until our mid to late sixties, or even later. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this seems to be the reality. We’re living longer, which on one hand is great, but also needs financing in some way or another.

Many of us are not inspired or fulfilled by our work. We dream of doing something different, but few actually take steps to do this. We’re often too “comfortable” within our own situations, even if we’re not feeling fulfilled by what we’re doing.

Even if we’re determined to make changes to our lives, it’s often hard to know where or how to even begin.

Fortunately, I help people identify and forge their new path forward all the time. That’s part of my role as a career coach

I used to do this exclusively through bespoke 1:1 coaching, until I discovered that some clients preferred a more structured approach. They liked to know the full extent of the journey that they’d be taking upfront (although career change journeys often include some unexpected twists and turns). So I created the Do Something Different programme, a structured 7-step approach.

Do Something Different

I’ve been running this on a 1:1 basis and with small groups since mid-2020 – if you recall, there were a lot of people considering their options at this point in time. This has worked well and there have been some great results to date for those who have completed the programme.

But I understand that even with small groups, this was financially challenging for some people – especially those feeling the pinch following redundancy or months of being furloughed.

Launch of online course

So I decided to launch an online version of the Do Something Different programme, to make this more accessible to more people.

This follows the same 7-steps structure, but allows you to do it in your own time and at your own pace. I share numerous tools and techniques that could help you get started in your quest to Do Something Different.

If you’re planning to Do Something Different this year, what better way to get started?
