Bridging the gap is hard, don't go it alone

You know the vocational skills gap is there, employers know it and it feels rubbish when you confront it and are hindered by it. So little support. Confusion. Doubt. No direct access to experts. Confusion about which path. Fear of falling short.

Aspiring sports performance professionals face these struggles every day. These struggles can lead to unfocused action, paralysis of momentum, poor decision making, and feeling overwhelmed. Faced with these struggles, it's no surprise why so many fall short of achieving their goals.

So little emphasis in education and work is put on how to become effective at working. Whether you're studying and want to up your employability or you're about to step out into the working world - you're often left to your own devices to get ahead. You should know that good grades will not be enough to get a job or flourish once you've got a job.

the right place?

Yes! You are most certainly in the right place to accelerate your career, though don't think there is a short cut.

It's not easy. Success is never guaranteed. However, the probability of success, building the skills to thrive, can be dramatically improved by joining forces with others who share your ambition, appetite and approach.

And the solution...

We have 25 years of supporting and championing performance people. We've seen 10,000's of CVs; interviewed 1000's of applicants; managed, developed and coached 1,000s of people to secure the job they dream of and to thrive in the role. We've never had a private community to focus on supporting people, until now!
