Partnering with Next Steps

Many years ago, when I met Jonathan for the first time I thought โ€œwhat a knowledgeable and authentic bloke this guy isโ€. We have connected and collaborated from time to time ever since and that impression has not changed. Jonathan is someone who demonstrates a deep understanding of organisational change and skills/career development, and the dynamics of how relationships impact the workplace. I highly recommend Jonathan as someone who listens and works hard to identify meaningful solutions for you and your workplace.

I first meet Jonathan while I was at Te Taurapa Tuhono (NZ Trade & Enterprise), we engaged him to provide career transition support for senior leaders. He was a great sounding board and consistently received good feedback from participants.

AO โ€“ Senior OD Manager, Management Consulting

Career Transition Coaching

The practical elements, cv feedback, suggested resources and the coach tuning into what I needed at each session and working with that. I loved how the coaching started and ended with the personality assessment. I have found that to be super helpful, affirming and I will continue using the resources as a guide.

Outplacement Coaching

The amount of input I had into the program/sessions and having the ability to choose what can be focused on. Having a coach who took the time to understand who I am and why I do what I do, which enabled me to feel very supported in the structure of each session.

My coach was amazing! A breath of fresh air ๐Ÿ™‚

Puplic Programme Developer – Entertainment and Coummunity Services

Partnering with Next Steps

Jonathan and his team provide the highest level of service to their clients. Whether for groups or individuals, each approach was bespoke, and handled with the requisite sensitivity and confidentiality. There is no ‘hard sell’, but rather a genuine desire to provide what is needed in a timely and compassionate manner. Our most common requirement was Outplacement support following redundancy, and over the years we made Jonathan’s services available to hundreds of employees, renewing our arrangements many times. I often received glowing feedback from people we had referred. I continue to recommend Jonathan and will continue to use his services when the need arises in the future.

Our Specialist Coaching Streams

Leadership & Employee Retention

Empower people to grow with the business and give them a reason to stay.

Grow your People Leaders, reduce unexpected turnover, boost productivity and encourage high levels of morale and loyalty.

 

Career Decisions & Redeployment

Enable internal applicants to put their ‘best foot’ forward in a selection process.

When restructuring leads to potential redundancy, redeployment options for affected employees must be considered when the business acts in ‘good faith’.

 

Change Management

Enhance leadership capability and grow team resilience during uncertain times.

When a change process is initiated within a business, a new set of unfamiliar skills is often needed by both people leaders and their direct reports.

 

Outplacement & Job Application

Ensure your employee has the skills to change career or land another role quickly.

Terminating an employment relationship due to redundancy, an agreed exit, or poor performance can be a difficult conversation to initiate.
