Looking for ideas and strategies to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and discover insights to improve your career and life? Emilie West, the author of Maximum You, and I discussed this, her work and much more on Episode 71 of the Reframe & Reset Your Career podcast.

In this episode, we will learn about:

Gaining perspective and seeing the bigger picture,

Finding roles which play to your strengths,

Strategies to develop your leadership skills,

Ideas to help you in your job search,

Understanding what makes you unique and articulating this when applying for jobs and interviewing,

Don’t put too much pressure on yourself when interviewing as this may stop your authentic self coming out,

The importance of being consistent during your job search and career, and

How to manage a difficult boss.

Emilie is an award-winning coach and speaker who helps her personal and business clients define and achieve their goals through positive change. Emilie combines her coaching experience with her knowledge as a wellness expert to provide holistic coaching supporting mental resilience, physical health and career success.  Emilie believes that the key to true inner confidence and life satisfaction lies in taking time to better understand ourselves, learning to play to our strengths and living life authentically.

As well as holding a degree in Economics from Warwick University, Emilie is a qualified Nutritional Therapist and an accredited Emotional Intelligence Coach. She is the author of Maximum You, which was recently published and is a great read.

Emilie talked with me about when you’re looking for a new job, think about what makes you unique and how you can stand out from the other candidates and told me that. She told me “it’s not always the obvious path that gets you where you want to go. Really stop and think about your strengths. You want to go and interview for a job where you are exactly what they’re after. If you get very clear on what you’re good at, there will be a company out there that really wants what you have to offer. So it’s being very good at articulating that, both in a CV, a covering letter, and then with my clients, I will put them through interview practice, and help them get better and better at articulating what their strengths are … So rather than comparing and despairing … Think about what advantages do you have over the other candidates?”
