Engaged in supporting her FTSE250 organisation in embedding a new customer-led organisational structure and culture during her notice period, R continued to develop strong relationships with the MD and other Board members and was ready take over the HR Director role when this unexpectedly became available. R continues to engage in executive coaching with Angela.
Working in the City whilst maintaining worklife balance
R gave up his role in the City when he started a family as he expected to be unable to maintain the work-life balance he wanted when he became a father.
Quickly disillusioned and significantly under-challenged by a role in the charity sector, R effectively utilised his network to enable a move from banking into the insurance sector. Successfully negotiating a four day working week enabled R to return to an intellectually stimulating and financially rewarding City role, whilst achieving the work-life balance he had previously considered impossible.
