CAREER AND LIFE DESIGN
We use Life Design, a proven career development approach first developed in 1989 and evolved over the years by Mark Savickas. Life Design uses the Career Construction Interview Process to facilitate your exploration and discovery of who you are, what matters and purpose in your life stories and helps you author or create career stories that align with these to clarify your career and life directions and choices and navigate your life and career transitions. This approach also helps you develop two meta-competencies of identity construction and adaptability needed in today’s ever changing world.
Life Design as a career development approach, enables you to develop the resources to respond creatively to a career made up of uncertainties by tapping on your mega motivation to adapt to an ever changing world in a way that aligns with who you are, what matters and purpose.
CAREER AND LIFE DESIGN SIGNATURE COACHING PROGRAMME
Our Career and Life Design Signature Coaching Programme is a highly personalised Coaching Programme using Life Design integrated with the Birkman Method and Hansen’s Integrative Life Planning Model (ILP) as a holistic approach to planning one’s life course.
The Birkman Method is a scientifically validated and reliable assessment to help you as leaders and professionals to recognise your values, interests, needs, personality and strengths. The combination of Career and Life-Design Coaching with the Birkman Method supercharges the coaching with the insights provided by Birkman’s scientifically validated personality assessment and occupational data and analysis. Birkman provides four key perspectives of your Motivation, Self-Perception, Social-Perception and Mindset to help you understand how they influence your emotions and actions that drive your life. You can refer to Sample Pages of Birkman Reports frequently used in Career and Life Coaching below to get a sense of insights that are available with Birkman.
Sample Pages of Birkman Reports frequently used in Career Coaching
- Birkman Signature, with applicable insights on an individual’s interests, strengths, blindspots and needs for development to enhance performance
- Birkman Career Exploration, which helps individuals identify careers that resonate with who they are, optimising their strengths and personality for sustained career satisfaction
Birkman also provide insights on other dimensions of work areas such as handling conflicts, communication, decision-making, how to bring out your best, stress management, relating to others, how you influence others which will be used in coaching as relevant to address specific areas of need that you are bringing to coaching.
The Integrative Life Planning Model (ILP) takes a broader definition of a career as the development and implementation of an individual’s self-concept with satisfaction to self and benefit to society as a sequence of roles a person holds in a lifetime, of which occupation is only one. The ILP framework identifies six critical tasks or life themes individuals need to attend to as they plan for the future. These are finding work that needs doing in changing global contexts; weaving work, family, learning into a meaningful whole; connecting family and work; valuing pluralism and inclusivity, exploring spirituality and life purpose; and managing personal transitions and organisational change. These are woven together as an individual puts together and understands the different parts of one’s life to become more conscious of the ways in which the different parts of family, work, learning and society are changing and how these will have an impact on their career and life planning or design.
Our Signature Coaching Programme can help you gain clarity and connect with who you are, what matters to you and purpose, and help you align your life and career goals in the context of life’s larger themes in the ILP framework to enable you to move towards career success as you define it, better life and career satisfaction and your unique contributions to society.

“The behavioural and interest data in the Birkman report were exceptionally useful in uncovering my strengths and blind spots. This provided clarity and direction in my career exploration and planning.”
“The coaching sessions allowed me to gain deeper self-awareness, and provided me with insights on the direction and steps I could take as I headed into the next phase of my journey.”
“I found the insights from the Birkman report particularly helpful in addressing some of the roadblocks I faced in my career journey.”
“By connecting with my life and career themes in the Life-Design process, it became clear to me what my strengths and interests were and what was important for me uniquely. It then became clear to me how I can move forward in a way that would make sense and be meaningful for me. I became more motivated and confident about the career direction and my next steps that I will take in the next chapter of my career.”
