WorkingFree is a specialist career advisory business supporting senior Director-level executives coming off the permanent payroll into an independent working lifestyle.
Supporting Organisations and Senior Executives moving into an independent working lifestyle.
WorkingFree work with Organisations transitioning senior managers into effective independent working outside the company. These entrepreneurial skillsets, attitudes and behaviours are often also seen as attractive – indeed necessary – commercial attributes required in senior areas of the business and we are pleased to help in these cases. We also work directly with Individuals, in making this transition or seeking to upscale their professional effectiveness.
We coach our clients from dependency into independency – for their own future; for the enlightened reputation of their sponsoring organisations and – increasingly – for the benefit of the community.
Our offering for Organisations can be delivered online or onsite as described in our Pathfinder Programme. This depends on what is permissible and/or what is deemed to work best.
The process normally starts with the Career Direction Discovery Masterclass that is designed to help senior executives appreciate this new career landscape, gain general information and choose the right independent career direction – if that is what they want to do. Very often these decisions are not easily or quickly made – particularly after a mainstream career on the corporate headcount. They call for a thorough understanding of the menu of options. We support this initial MasterClass with a carefully selected and developed range of Career Choice and Support Topic MasterClasses from which the individualised Programme can be created.
We also work with Individuals who can attend regular Community Meet-Ups, Masterclass and Mastermind Groups as published on upcoming events section of our website.
We present WorkingFree as a unique offering in a busy and increasingly important market.
Its uniqueness comes from having free access to an expanding, interactive and online resource of both generic and specific information and advice and unique from being able to work with experienced sector professionals.
All Corporates have their own internal Development Programmes for their senior people. These include helping their senior and Director-Level Managers in whatever they do next in their careers – mostly at the point of exit but, increasingly pre-exit and very often post-exit. Turning employees into Partners is how many see the process. Our Pathfinder Programme – and very often funded by their last employer- is for those who want to do their own thing; to develop a portfolio career and to reshape their lifestyles around changing circumstances. Some simply fancy the idea. Some want to keep working. Some need to keep earning.
With its continuously updated material and supported by judicious editing from the Centre, Working Free is an exciting and innovative niche product within this broader market.
