Like most of you on this forum, I work for a large consulting firm where the bar is set higher and higher every year and little attention paid to how each individual is expected to achieve the goals. With the current recession looming low on all firms, the next year particularly the next quarter is predicted to be fraught with layoffs.
I am seeking adhoc impartial advice regarding my career goals, best ways to achieve them and experienced advice on how to navigate the political maze of big city firms.
I am sick of opening myself up to internal 'independent' counsellors knowing that all they really care about is that tick in the 'people developer' box and serving the interests of the of the firm.
Is there such a service available where senior management level (C-suite/Executive/Senior Manager) individuals provide discrete face-to-face/over-the-phone advice to keen yet inexperienced city professionals?
If so, I am keen to connect and would appreciate a response.
