Are there other options that help me to get work I want?
Absolutely. You could do a top-tier MBA and use this as your platform to change your career. That will easily cost you at least €100.000 and a minimum 12 months – not including the preparation. You could hire a top-tier coach. Coaches can be a helpful guide in self-exploration, which is why we include mentoring in parallel to the tutorials. The advantage to our mentor/tutorial model verses a classical coach is threefold. First, our mentors are trained in our unique methodology. The tutorials guide you through the key steps of discovering, finding and getting the work you want, providing you with a concrete structure. This structure is then supplemented by private sessions with your mentor to reinforce and personalize the methodology. Second, we exclusively work with mentors who are active professionals in their own right to ensure they are able to guide you from real world experience, whereas coaches tend to be fully dedicated to coaching with less capacity to bring in real-world insights. Third, price. Our program is significantly more reasonable than traditional coaching. You could approach a colleague to mentor you or ask your HR department. Before doing so, however, it is important to consider whether this could negatively impact your career. Working with current colleagues to help your “move on” to your next challenge carries inherent risks. Often it is difficult to receive independent advice under such circumstances. You could hire a headhunter because they have “jobs on offer” at any time. This can be a fast option, but the goal of a headhunter is to fill the positions they have, not focus on understanding your individual needs and searching for opportunities that match. Once you know clearly what you want, reaching out to headhunters to identify potential opportunities is appropriate, but it’s not the way to identify your dream job. You could try to do it on your own – investing significant time on how to do that and finding the right materials to guide you along the way. That’s what we did when we started to build this course and we can assure you it takes a LOT of time and effort. WYW is all about helping you get work you really want and our participants are focused on achieving a true understanding of what will make them happy and taking the necessary steps to get there. However, if you believe one of these other options works better for you, then we encourage you to do that.
