The Halifax chapter of BU JUMP was pleased to welcome career coach Sandi Roberts on January 25th, 2017 at an event hosted at the law offices of McInnes Cooper. Sandi is a leadership development coach, consultant, and entrepreneur with over 25 years of professional experience in both the public and private sectors. Sandi’s engaging talk, “What the heck is coaching and what’s in it for me,” provided an overview of career coaching and how it can help personal and professional development at any stage of life.
The discussion included an interactive exercise in which Sandi challenged the audience to take a holistic view of their respective surroundings by evaluating eight different aspects of their lives, including one’s career, family & friend, significant other, fun & recreation, health, financial situation, personal growth, and physical environment. The exercise allowed the audience to determine what components in their lives should be celebrated and provided context as to where they should look to help improve their personal positions.
JUMP members found widely viewed the exercise and ensuing discussion as helpful, informative, and a valuable undertaking to unlock one’s potential.
