Career transformation


We support executives to help transform their careers.

You might be an executive who has just started a challenging new role, or someone who is stuck in their role or organisation and unsure of their next steps, or perhaps, someone who has just been told it is time for a change by the harsh realities of corporate life.

Our specialist, hugely experienced, well networked coaches are empathetic and understanding, knowing when to be supportive and knowing when to dig you in the ribs. We use a variety of thinking tools, practical exercises and insight to help you generate and evaluate opportunities to make the best of the next phase in your career. We also have strong senior networks.

We will guide you through a four stage process to ensure you have the best chance possible to follow your dreams, hit the ground running and perhaps, transform your life.


1. Understanding the reality

Our journey begins with understanding what you’re here to change, finding focus and building resilience for what’s to come. An exciting opportunity to explore the possibilities!


2. Preparing for transformation

Having established your vision, it’s time to review your personal brand. We’ll zone in on your strengths and experience, and make sure that your online presence showcases your talents as well as possible. We’ll also explore your network to see who we can tap in to in order to get you to where you want to be.


3. Moving onwards and upwards

This phase is about putting a plan into action as you prepare to interview for your next role. We’ll support you as your sounding board and help you to sharpen interview techniques and rehearse, making sure you’re confident and ready for the next step.


4. Supporting future growth

We’re alongside you as you negotiate and accept your new role, prepping you to ensure you can hit the ground running - and we’ll support you for the first hundred days to make sure you’re happy and that all is well.


ascend with us

I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with an executive coach from Ascend and see it as one of the most valuable experiences of my career. I was at a crossroads, or had obviously come to the end of one road and did not know the next direction to go in. My coach was able to help me think about the positives - what was I good at and what did I enjoy - and then translate that into an environment and career that was going to bring out the best in me. It helped me rebuild confidence and pivot into an entirely new environment and role, for which I am extremely grateful.
