Frequently Asked Questions
When should I start the coaching sessions?As soon as you know you want to take a sabbatical we can start the sessions to set you up for success. Then we will continue to have sessions throughout your sabbatical.
I’m already half way through my sabbatical, can you still help me?Absolutely! A lot of people seek support once they on sabbatical. We’ll assess where you’re at and give you a tailored and structured approach to make the most of the time you have left.
Can I pick and choose what to use from the Sabbatical Toolkit?Yes. The toolkit is designed so you can use what you need at a time that serves you and come back to use other tools when you’re ready. It’s a structured approach with the flexibility to dip in and out of it as you please.
How much time will take to work with you and the toolkit?We will have coaching sessions for 1 hour each. I also ask you to leave 30 mins after the session to reflect and capture your insights. In between sessions you’ll often have activities to complete either from the toolkit or something else you’d like to work from the session. You can spend as much or a little time working through the toolkit – it’s totally up to you.
I don’t have WhatsApp – is there another way to join the group?No – we use WhatsApp as people often want to disengage with Social Media during their break and most people find WhatsApp less intrusive and easy to use. You can download it for free on any device - https://www.whatsapp.com/download
Do I have to join the support group?No. You’re free to join or not join and contribute as much or as little as you like. And you can leave whenever you like. There are people of all ages, walks of life and career backgrounds from all over the world and new people joining all the time.
