I’d welcome people’s feedback on a business idea that has been pitched to me
Some time ago I was introduced to a reputable coaching company. Take it from me that they are not rip-off artists. They have a long standing programme that people go through to assess whether they should stay in their current role, actively seek promotion, move to a competitor, start their own business, etc.
In short it’s an “at a cross-roads” programme with a medium term outlook.
I mentioned to them that such a programme for consultants would need to be re-assessed every 18 months based on how often we appear to find ourselves at a career crossroads! I was half joking.
They have now come back to me and asked if I will help them adapt their programme for this very purpose and possibly deliver it. They think they can put together a twelve week duration programme (about 40 hours), done entirely out of office hours that provides MC’s with a definitive guide on their best 3-5 year plan. Cost is likely to be between £400-£500. The course would include a series of psych test, motivational analysis, interviews and face-2-face mentoring and help with networking.
How many people would invest that sort of money in themselves in order to get certainty over a career plan of that nature?
