2023 Sparkle Plan

As we roll into yet another new year (where does time go?!) and 2023 begins, it’s time to take control of your career. 

Perhaps you ended 2022 on a high. You worked hard all year. You wrote enough emails to write a novel and spent an average of 9 hours a day on your computer. 

That sounds like a lot!

But how are you feeling
about what you achieved in 2022?

If you’ve had a kick-ass year then I take my hat off to you, and I’ll toast you on your success. Let’s make sure 2023 is at least as good. Right?

If 2022 didn’t light a fire, fill you with inspired action and thrilled at your success, but instead you found yourself plodding along, then I also want to help.

And that starts with having a career that we love.

We spend more time working than any other single activity other than sleep. So in my opinion we should love what we do. That doesn’t mean you love every single moment (though I’m also down with that — I just think that’s quite a high bar to set!). What it should absolutely mean is that you are more often than not excited to get to work. If that’s not true for you, then The 2023 Sparkle Plan Workshop is for you.

Regardless of whether you love your job, are in a role that is just not hitting the high notes, or you are unemployed, you shouldn’t underestimate the importance of getting a jump-start on your career in the year ahead.

But year after year I see two big mistakes happening when people start their New Year planning.

We set big audacious goals which then just sit on a dusty shelf making us feel guilty.

We’ve experienced #1 << before and now say ‘never again’ and don’t set goals and targets. So we end up with a bit of a dull, lackluster life, because we just plod along.

If you fall into either of these two camps, I want 2023 to be different for you. I want you to get back into control of your future (and that does require some planning). 

Join me to put the sparkle in 2023 and ensure you are set up for success

I’d like to offer you the opportunity to take some much-needed time and space to plan your year and career. A few hours to think about your future career and work this year so that you prioritize you, instead of everything and everyone else. 

In this live and interactive online workshop, you’ll get to work with me on:

Exploring your strengths

Clarifying your priorities

Putting in place a career plan that works for you in the short, medium and long term

Setting powerful goals for you that are balanced and not overwhelming

Writing your own personal professional plan, whether that’s for thriving in your current role or landing that next great job

This is a fabulous chance for you to take stock of your life and career and think practically about how you can take good care of yourself while building a great career, then planning those important next steps. 

I’ll be giving you tools and practical examples to get you going. 

By the end of the workshop, you will have a clear plan for the coming weeks and months. You’ll also have learned some simple tools and techniques to use again in the future whenever you want to reflect on your life.

This workshop will be a mixture of live training and homework. To give you time to complete the exercises we’re holding this workshop throughout the month of January to make sure you immediately implement what you are learning. 

Recordings of each session will be made available for a limited period if you can’t join in live.

The Program:

Session 1:

Session 4:

  • Build your 6-month professional development plan — take your sparkle plan and turn this into bite-sized chunks for making progress

If you can make one New Year’s resolution let it be to make 2023 Sparkle!

I look forward to meeting you in the 2023 Sparkle Plan Workshop!
