Product description


Pit Stop is a very good and practical book. It is aimed at those who are not sure what they want to do and takes the reader through their past, where they currently are and exploring potential futures. At every stage he offers different exercises to help marshal one's thoughts. He helps the reader think about what is important to them, what they want more of and how they can not only get clarity but also articulate it. From the very beginning he helps identify their gaps and how to overcome these. As with any book it can only do so much and Michael points this out early on making suggestions as to how you can engage with others to make the process better. Not only is he informative by giving context and theory to each part but also his writing style is lively and engaging. This book is for the person who is not sure what they want to do but is prepared to put some thought and effort into this. With lots of intelligent, thoughtful exercises and comments Michael provides a roadmap that will take the reader through their own motivations, skills and aspirations to a place where they are able to identify where they will find a satisfying career. --James Talbot, career coach at JTC

About the Author

Michael is an experienced career coach who has worked extensively with adults during significant career transitions. About half of his clients are from financial services and the remainder are from a wide spectrum of sectors and organisations. His goal is to enable people make better quality career decisions through exploring their history and preferences. He trained in Engineering and Management at St Peters Oxford, prior to his first role in Coopers and Lybrand Deloitte as a Business Modelling consultant. He moved into the Financial Services Sector, working as a Project Manager in Credit Suisse Financial Products for five years, in London with a short stint in Japan. Since leaving the corporate world, he has been part of three small businesses, focusing on process consultancy, change management and most recently career coaching through his company This Is My Path. He has extensive experience of outplacement working as an associate of Penna. He studied Organisational Behaviour and Career Counselling at Birkbeck and continues to be an active member of the career coaching community. This varied experience gives him a broad understanding of the tricky nature of career decisions at certain times in life. He recognises, from personal experience, that career transition requires addressing the risk and emotional issues as well as the purely financial considerations.
