The i-GROW model below guides you through the process.  You can sample any part of the model to decide where you want to start.

Using this model

  • think about how you want to progress or change your career/working life by clarifying awareness of yourself: skills, strengths, qualities, ambitions, preferred ways of working and work/life balance requirements
  • set goals for both the short and long-term
  • reality-check and assess where you are now in terms of your experience, professional skills and behaviours and opportunities open to you
  • decide on next steps you want to take and commit to your way forward
