Delivering career guidance and coaching via telephone and video (Expert Training Online)

This expert training online session is aimed at career practitioners who deliver or intend to deliver career guidance and coaching via the medium of telephone and video. The content focuses on in-depth guidance and coaching rather than tracking or cold calling. During the session we will explore how the skills and methods of face-to-face work can be creatively applied to telephone and video, rapidly building rapport and using multi-sensory tactics to fully engage clients and address their career development needs. The workshop will be led by Liane Hambly, Career Development Consultant. Liane uses these media in her own coaching practice and has delivered webinars and learning programmes on this topic throughout the UK and internationally.

Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in Career Conversations (Expert Training Online)

ACT is one of the most promising tools for career practice to have emerged from the field of psychology in the last decade. Its aim is to support clients to identify and pursue a values-driven life, by helping them to minimise the impact that their negative thoughts and feelings have on their actions. For career development practitioners, it offers an approach to help clients to work out what their career goals are, and provides some techniques to help clients deal with low confidence and anxiety. There is a growing empirical evidence base for ACT, which demonstrates that it can help people to feel less anxious, more resilient and more motivated through group work and one to one exercises.
