The benefits to individuals
People often say that one of the most important things in life is to have a fulfilling career, and a great way to achieve this is to focus on career development.
For the individual, career development can lead to a happier, healthier life, which for some gives purpose and meaning. Career development coaching from Ramsay Todd focuses on career fulfilment, whether team members are facing job frustration and need inspiration, or talented individuals need help to navigate their progression towards a management or leadership role.
Career coaching is a wise investment
There are many benefits and reasons why a business should consider working with a professional career coach to focus on career development.
Recruiting the right staff and training them to fit in with the business is expensive and has an impact on business performance when there is high staff turnover.
In addition, existing staff already know how the business works and have a good understanding of the industry dynamics.
A more productive and lower cost solution is to develop the skills of existing staff and to promote from within, providing career progression for loyal employees. Here are some of the benefits of using professional coaching within a business:
- Greater job satisfaction
- Lower staff turnover
- Higher motivation and productivity
- Better decision making
- Reduced recruitment and training costs
Addressing low-morale and lack of synergy
Sometimes a business can suffer from staff not being motivated and feeling unappreciated, believing that their career progress has stalled and they don't know what's next.
If these issues aren’t addressed, staff members are likely to be unproductive or may even leave in pursuit of greater career fulfilment elsewhere.
Mid-career frustration, for example, is a common issue where staff members feel they have taken their career as far as they can. The lack of progress can be very upsetting, but with the right development, they can regain their focus and motivation, potentially creating future executives.
Working with a professional career coach at Ramsay Todd can help you address career development issues. Our executive coaching experts will identify issues such as job frustration or a lack of focus and we will work with each individual to support the creation of a clear career development plan.

FAQs on career development coaching
Professional career coaching is for anyone in business and isn't just used when there is low morale. Even if members of a team are highly motivated and productive, a professional coach can make a big difference by acknowledging progress to date whilst developing a strategy for the future. Career development ensures that staff have the right focus on results for the business and can make better decisions.
Career navigation involves working with individuals to understand what they want to achieve in their careers. A plan is then created to help them navigate towards achieving that.
