Helping you make the right choice
We are running the 4th Industrial Revolution, which is marked by emerging technology breakthroughs in a number of fields that consequently affect the job market.
In these times, people are called to face sudden career changes that put them into emotionally difficult and financially inconvenient circumstances. The key is to be well prepared, to be proactive and not reactive.
Our Transition Counseling Service confirms the on-going development of an employee’s life and emphasizes continuity rather than disruption. We address change and deal with the effects of transition by guiding participants through alternative career options, using a very structured methodology to meet their exclusive needs and goals.
We work with you to give your people a flexible and tailor-made service, that rapidly reconnects them to their chosen career and life path.
By offering a Transition Counseling to departing employees, you gain the flexibility to smoothly implement change management decisions. You make sure that your corporate identity remains intact to your market and clients’ eyes.

Unlike other consultants, we do spend time for and with our participants; thus we want them to do the same, without setting limits. We are always there during standard office hours with constant communication, offering proactive assistance and coaching, boosting each individual’s for as many meetings, telephone or web calls they require throughout the whole program. Office space is also provided when needed.
Ongoing mentoring and support
Constant support during working hours and days (9-5, Mon-Fri). One-to-one coaching when needed. In addition, we are still there to follow up the efficiency of the program; we ask participants to evaluate the program after completion, over the 3rd and 6th month. These results are also communicated to our client.
Be an Entrepreneur
Based on statistics, 10% of participants choose to follow their own dream and turn to entrepreneurship as a next career step. For them, we offer a fresh, structured and innovative entrepreneurship educational program. Our program actively supports the development of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial mentality, regardless of the idea and the business model.
It offers contemporary knowledge about the fundamentals of starting up a business, incorporating the most modern approach in entrepreneurial education.
The program expects to help accelerate each participant’s business. For most of participants, that will be taking a rough idea, finding a viable path forward and, with some effort, a solid business plan. For others, the end result will be an MVP or end product/service in the market, with actual customers. And for some, that business will have paying customers and actual revenue.
No matter the final result, everyone who participates in the program will come away with:
- a good understanding of what it takes to create and execute a business plan
- entrepreneurship education, that will allow each participant to try again in the future or give advice/support to other fellow entrepreneurs
- a much better understanding of their business
- a few months’ worth of progress vs. where they would be without the program. If participants come in and work hard for 6 weeks, they typically make more progress in those 6 weeks than they’d make on their own in 6-12 months
