Growing A Career Coaching Business For HR Professionals – With Jane Ferré

I was delighted to be joined on the A Better HR Business show by Jane Ferré, a highly successful career coach for senior in-house HR professionals.

Jane is growing a career coaching business for senior HR professionals who’ve outgrown their current role and want to secure their dream role in their dream company with a dream package in less than six months.

Jane Ferre on growing a career coaching business

Before setting up her own coaching practice she had a 20+ year career in senior HR roles such as HR Business Partner, Head of Leadership Development and Head of Talent at British Airways before joining LEON Restaurants as their very first Head of Training.

All of this means that Jane has been active in the job market in recent years. She understands exactly how much effort you need to put into each job application and how frustrating it can be when you get ghosted after an interview. She has also been on the other side of the recruitment table, so knows exactly what recruiting managers are looking for.

I asked Jane:

  • Tell us a little about your background and how you got into consulting?
  • What consulting do you do? How do you help your clients?
  • How do you structure your coaching services and programs?
  • How was the transition from the corporate world to starting your own company?
  • How did you get your first few clients? What are your main marketing channels for getting new clients now?
  • What do you see coming down the road for HR and the world of work and how should listeners get prepared for these changes?

Is Your HR Business Positioning Losing You New Clients? Here’s How To Fix It

Normally, on the A Better HR Business show, I conduct interviews with business leaders from across the Human Resources industry but I’m flying solo today because I’ve been getting so many emails and LinkedIn messages over the past few months from consultancies and agencies in the HR industry and the vast majority of them have been about how they’re struggling to find new clients in these difficult times.

Ben

There are many different reasons why a business in the HR industry may struggle to find new clients but today I want to take a quick look at what may be the biggest reason that you’re struggling to win more work:

Is your HR business positioning losing you new clients?

Growing A Project Management & Administration Business With An HR Focus In The Performing Arts Industry

Rachel Barker

Rachel Barker recently stepped-up her HR consulting business to the next level and I really love the way she’s gone about it.

Rachel helps leaders in the performing arts to successfully manage their people and create better organisations.

During the course of our discussion, I asked Rachel:

  • Tell us a little about your background and led you to launch your own consulting business? How did it feel?
  • What consulting kind of consulting services do you provide and to whom?
  • Most people who are employed in some sort of HR-related role, when they decide to start their own consultancy they go very broad and very generic. I love the fact that you’ve decided to focus on a particular niche. Why did you choose a narrow area and was it a big or scary decision?
  • What’s your advice to other consultants who are trying to find their niche or focus point?
  • What are your plans for getting new clients?
  • What do you see coming down the road for HR and the world of work and how should listeners get prepared for these changes?

Growing The Predictive Index

In 1942, twenty-six-year-old Arnold Daniels volunteered for the U.S. Army Air Corps. Shipped off to England, he was placed as a flight navigator and his team soon logged more than 30 missions—all without a single combat casualty.

When commanders noted the team’s record, they sent a psychologist in to work with Daniels—to study just what made their teamwork so successful.

This was Daniels’ first introduction to psychometric testing, and what would become a lifetime passion: solving business problems through the lens of understanding individuals.

After the war, he returned to Boston, where he briefly attended Harvard to study workplace psychology. In 1952 he released the first Predictive Index Assessment.

In 1955, Daniels founded PI Worldwide (now called The Predictive Index).

The Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment™ was created through a normative sample of thousands of people and has since been the subject of nearly 500 validation studies. It has received continual updates and today represents a well-established, business-relevant, and scientifically-proven measure of behavioral tendencies in the workplace.

Over six decades since, thousands of organizations have used The Predictive Index in nearly every job and industry around the world.

The Predictive Index helps businesses and organizations all over the globe overcome workplace challenges through a unique blend of scientific behavioral assessments, groundbreaking software, exceptional management training, and professional consulting from the world’s top workplace behavior specialists.

In short, The Predictive Index helps companies understand how their people think and work to help employees maximize their productivity.

The Predictive Index helps more than 8,000 clients across 142 countries; I’ve used it many times in different countries myself, so I was delighted to be joined on the podcast by the CEO of Predictive Index, Mike Zani.

Years ago, I was a fresh-faced young HR graduate in an international, very rules-based company when my first mentor gave me a copy of a book called ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People‘ written by Stephen Covey.

The book had a profound effect on my thinking and on my subsequent career in Human Resources.

It seems, I wasn’t the only one.

Now listed on the New York Stock Exchange, the FranklinCovey company is considered by many as the world leader in helping organizations achieve results that require lasting changes in human behavior.
