What is it?

Individual coaching provides you with the opportunity to discuss your career plans and parenting needs confidentially with a qualified executive career coach for up to 12 months. It is a personalised, one-to-one service delivered by an Executive Coach. It is designed to be flexible and to meet your needs. Coaching will help you to boost and sustain your career and family well-being assisting you to avoid the common pitfalls many working parents face. Your coach will work with you to create your own unique plan that supports you to achieve your ideal career and family goals. The coaching is suitable for employees (both men and women) who are parents and carers. It is ideally suited to people during parental transition or later when career and caring needs become complex or change.

How it works?

To enrol, express your interest and the Parents At Work team will contact you about your eligibility for the service. Coaching sessions are approximately 1 hour in duration, and can be conducted over the phone or face-to-face. You can expect to have three coaching sessions throughout the 12-month program, followed up by check-in calls and emails to see how you are progressing. Flexibility around when and how the coaching session is delivered is paramount, and is tailored for you. Most importantly, this is a confidential service and your privacy is maintained.
