What does the program cover?

The aim of the program is to engage clients to actively participate in their job search and employment preparation. I will provide them with tools to assist with:

      • Motivation
      • Goal Setting
      • Build essential life skills
      • Managing Limiting Beliefs
      • Building resilience
      • Overcoming adversity
      • Personal presentation and communication
      • Disability Disclosure.

Jobseekers will leave the Bounce Back to Work Seminar with an ability to identify the barriers preventing them from obtaining work, and how they can overcome and negotiate the things that are holding them back from achieving their employment goals. This session is designed to break down the negative thought processes that many job seekers hold toward obtaining or returning to work.

A focus of the Bounce Back to Work Seminar is to really tap into the interests and outcomes of the Jobseeker. Clients have an opportunity to create an image and vision of how obtaining sustainable employment can impact positively upon their lives. The Bounce Back to Work Seminar is not only about work, but about how clients can set goals, leap the barriers that life presents and change their whole life

HOw the program works

Bounce Back to Work is an Interactive Seminar and participants will be asked to share thoughts and ideas throughout the session. A Q & A time is allocated at the end of the session for a facilitated discussion of topics in more detail.

The Bounce Back to Work Seminar has been adapted to meet COVID safe requirements and consists of an hour of Zoom interactive engagement with Jobseekers. An alternative to the Zoom option is a  3 hour face-to-face workshop. Follow up sessions or individual career coaching can be organised.

Your training will be provided by an experienced career coach and presenter. Fiona has lived experience with disability, being legally blind.
