A Real Life Case Study Example:
Beginning section: Identifying the challenge

After twenty-eight years of corporate service, the time had come for a senior executive to leave her employment. She doubted her capabilities without the corporate umbrella and had no clear idea what the future would hold. She had learnt many management techniques but when it came to applying them to herself she needed outside help.

Middle section: The SMP approach – Analysing and developing the solution

SMP listened to the fears and concerns that had built up in the executive’s mind.  Fears were turned into focus, which quickly lessened anxiety and turned negativity into a more positive outlook. Over the next few months the use of the SMP Six-Step Career Navigation Cycle with other dedicated tools and techniques revitalised dormant passions and optimism.

End Section: The results and benefits gained
The result was that the executive had relit the fires of enthusiasm. She now had the courage to leave her old employer to create her own business in a field that she loved.

 Client testimonial:
“Steve and his team have turned my dark world into a glorious bright future
and I’m sure he can do the same for you. Don’t delay. Turn your fear into
focus and take charge of your own future.”
