The Heart of Work is a career and leadership consultancy run by Felicity Dwyer. I help women (and men) to forge successful careers doing work they enjoy, and which allows them to live the lives they choose.
I also help people to develop leadership skills and confidence so they can manage others more effectively. I work with both individuals and with organisations, and offer the following services.
Clarity in Career Transition
An in-depth programme for people at a career crossroads. You may be returning to the workplace after a break, or considering options after redundancy. Or you may want to re-evaluate what you do for a living and where you would like to go next in your working life. This programme is called Firework and has been running for over 10 years, helping people find clarity and direction.
You may also choose a shorter career coaching programmes to help you think through a specific decision, for example whether to go self-employed, or follow a particular career path.
Building Leadership Skills & Confidence
Leadership skills are essential for managers, and equally valuable for those in other leadership roles, for example trustees or board members. I have a particular interest in the leadership issues facing women.
For individuals moving into a leadership role, I can help you become more effective and confident, and to achieve a national qualification in leadership if you wish.
For organisations, I can run accredited or bespoke programmes for you in-house. These courses are particularly suitable for middle-managers and for those who are moving into leadership and management roles, and want to get it right from the start. Leadership isn’t just for chief executives and top teams, it is valuable at all levels of an organisation. It is also essential for people running small enterprises as they move from being a “one-woman or one-man” band into growth, and taking on staff.
RenewYou is an established one-day personal development and confidence building course, exclusively for women. Commissioning RenewYou is a cost effective way to develop women at any level within your organisation. The course encourages self-awareness and effective goal setting, and enables women to move forward professionally with greater clarity and confidence.
