If you are looking for good quality advice on career coaching for teenagers read on…. you could be a teenagers yourself looking to get a step ahead of your parents, friends or teachers! Or you may be a forward thinking parent seeking real life advice….
This quick read should enable you to talk about what it is, why do it, where to find it and how to make it a success.
Why seek out Career Coaching?
Whether it’s for you or someone else you have to buy into it before you start.
It will give the ‘base camp’ for flexible ideas for what you can do, when you do it and how you get there, it doesn’t matter if you are 13 or 18 .. a good plan still works.
Career Coaching can be found in schools or colleges and through friends and colleagues, the best advice will always come from an independent source and don’t be shy, seek out professional help, it may cost but you can always discuss your needs with a potential service provider before you commit, remember a small investment now will repay itself many times over throughout your career.
So, what is it?
Career Coaching should be a set of theoretical advice and practical activities that give the user the knowledge and motivation to plan their short and medium term career future
It should be guided using attitude, personality and interests, not just on academic or technical ability. Be realistic and don’t throw in too many social, economic or geographical boundaries… they are enough hurdles out there already.
How can you measure success in career coaching for teenagers?
In many ways short term, you will see their level of motivation rise in the direction of study or hobby this will then give them a more informed view of a direction. Their appetite for working part time or voluntarily will increase as will their communication skills with advisors.
Longer term you will see longevity in roles and quicker promotion in responsibility as well or job title.
Professional career coaching will have a long term impact on a teenager’s ability to plan ahead and get a great career. In needn’t be along programme of training, short, punchy and fun works and as we mentioned earlier a small investment will get a return.
Talk to us at TCMO and as ever ‘google’ it, we’d like to think our guidance is honest and real life

Change Management! What is it? Do I use it? Have I experienced it? With everyone’s life being influenced these days by innovative changes in communication technology management. Where exactly does Change Management sit in modern day management structures regarding planning and receptive implementations?
Change Management might sound like a simple statement? But for the savvy business leaders, we have all heard the saying: It’s not worth risking Change for the sake of Change!!! Change Management is a fundamental management skill that needs to be implemented in order to keep that competitive edge and freshness to enable a business or individuals to move their business from a required position to a preferred future position in order for them to keep ahead of the competition or indeed set the yard stick for competitors to chase.
Change Management fundamentally is about dealing with organizational change, however in order to deal with organizational change, we first of all have to have individuals on board, we need the buy in rather than the big sell in, we need to be able to clearly show a vision or plan out a road map as to the thoughtful planning that is going to be involved in, how the change management will be achieved, the realistic approaches that will be taken and how we will measure the results so that we can understand what the organization will look like after, why it must change? How we will know the results of the change management within the business? Who will be effected by the changes and predict how individuals or the business will react to change management?
For many middle to senior managers based in Scotland having to face making these changes within this global recession, it has become apparent that many of us have been exposed to experiences and situations that we have never had to deal with or even think about in the passed, Change Management is about assembling the very best “information and support” from professionals that can advice, inform and support those individuals or business leaders who need to take that next step

In today’s ever changing business environment the need for tailor made and continually flexible outplacement solutions is now essential for most genuine people centric organisations.
Our experience has given us proof that a one size fits all service, previously chosen by a lot of Insider 500 and FTSE 250 companies has had its day.
Although a consistent and results driven approach is still key the necessity to provide an ‘a la carte’ menu of cost effective outplacement solutions leads the way.
At TCMO we provide these solutions by quickly evaluating the needs, numbers and experiences of displaced teams and offering not just one but up to 8 different options for that one business.
These different options can vary from 1 hour reviews to full career transition programmes with a lifetime career guarantee.
A break with tradition is required with these options, not just the usual ‘off the shelf’ quick fix and the style is not decided by salary level or job title, these outplacement solutions are provided on a individual needs basis in partnership with HR.
These options within our outplacement solutions services have generated real results and often eradicate the negativity felt by some teams during restructuring and in some cases we have seen ex employees return after a period of time gaining experience elsewhere.

What does it mean to invest in your career? Go on a course to update your skills? Spend a few hours each week trawling through jobs pages and websites? Or pay a company to manage your career?
Very few will think of the latter but those who do have taken ownership of their own career by investing in their career.
In reality, career management companies deal with individuals who command salaries of £30,000 and upwards, broadly described as middle to senior management.
Based in Edinburgh at Straiton Business Parc, TCMO is Scotland’s most innovative career management services and outplacement services company. Raymond Currie, a Director of the company, explains how the career management service works in practice. “Contrary to the perception most of our clients are not out of work. Most are in jobs but are now taking control of their future career moves.
TCMO offer a personalised service, no seminars and no workshops. Everything is tailored to the specific needs of the client and is a results driven process backed up with TCMO’s career lifetime guarantee. TCMO take you on an interactive journey to success, project managed and delivered by a team of career professionals. The key to success is TCMO’s pro active support built on strong foundations. These foundations include identifying the client’s primary career objective through a Career Diagnosis and Focus consultation.
Effective marketing is essential with cutting edge CVs, covering letters and profiles being created before ensuring that interview techniques are thoroughly addressed. Routes to market are researched before TCMO tap into their network which in turn provides access to the unadvertised job market which accounts for 75-80% of positions in the UK.
TCMO are innovative in their approach to career management. Everything they do is on a one to one basis, scheduled around the client’s diary and existing commitments. Their unique selling points are the on going career support until the day you retire but in particular the professionalism of the career managers.
TCMO start the “investment in your career” by offering two initial career assessment meetings, free of charge after which they produce a proposal tailored to your needs. So if you are changing career, seeking promotion, facing redundancy or at a crossroads in your career, why not contact TCMO with the view of taking ownership of your own career…or do you want “to wait and see?”
