Supporting AXA management after a restructure in Bristol A case study

Lequin’s career coaching helped me look at all the possibilities with an open mind, define my motivators and values, increase my confidence and challenge my preconceptions about roles and directions I could go in. It was greatly appreciated.

IT Manager, AXA, Bristol, UK

After a major restructure, AXA’s outplacement programme provided 44 middle to senior managers in Bristol with support finding new roles and careers.

Our career profiling assessed personal strengths, skills, values, and working preferences. This helped people see where they might go next, where they needed to develop a skill – and what they should avoid. We ran eight clinics:

  • Visioning & career management
  • CV & letter writing
  • Interviewing skills
  • Presentation skills
  • Confidence & self management
  • Personal impact & branding
  • Influencing & negotiation skills
  • Job search & networking

Career coaching was tailored to the needs of each individual, we used our five-step career coaching process to help people develop the skills, confidence and direction needed to find their next job and establish a long-term career path and vision.
