I had several sessions with Rosaleen as part of the Genius programme and had a Chakra hand session. Rosaleen helped me to take a deep dive into my future career aspirations and visulise ways how to achieve them. Having the confidence to start this programme with Rosaleen was a major step too. It enabled me to become aware of my strengths ie leadership qualities and recognise my worth. My confidence has excelled imnensely. We also discussed my aim to I seek a mentor and coach at work. I achieved both and they gave me the skills and tips to progress in my role at work. I then sought and was promoted to the next grade, a tangible outcome. I recently completed the role with positive appraisal feedback.
This summer I had two job interviews and was successful in both of them. Currently I am on temporary loan to another Government department and taking the opportunity to meet new people via various departmental group networks.
Rosaleen was a great support throughout. I was at a crucial point in my career journey, and I now have the self belief to seek further opportunities and additional promotion prospects.
During the lockdown period, I took advantage of L & D opportunities, such as joining an internal programme for ethnic minorities.
Overall, my sessions with Rosaleen were a worthwhile investment which have reaped rewards.
