Career Periodisation is breaking down the core competencies of the industry into small manageable chunks to map out and positively boost your career.


Our industry is incredibly competitive, Career Periodisation is the tool that is going to help you to overcome…

  • Confusion and lack of motivation in your current role
  • Feelings of being overwhelmed and anxious about what the right “next decision” is
  • Anxiety relating to building a sustainable, long-term career in the field
  • Feeling that your career path is out of your control

When you create goals you set your intentions, when you create a plan, you are mapping out exactly how you will achieve these goals. The most important part of a goal is understanding the exact process you will implement in order to achieve the target. That is what Career Periodisation will do for you.

The Reflective Practitioners Journal is a beautifully simple product which will be your guide towards happiness, health and wealth. It is designed to give you daily, weekly and monthly check-ins so you can not only improve as a coach but as a practitioner.

We operate in a service industry; we serve our athletes in order to optimise their performance. But what are you doing to help optimise yours? We cannot truly turn up for our clients and athletes if we are not looking after our own well-being. The Reflective Practitioners Journal is your start point.

Core competencies

Core competencies are the pillars upon which you measure your skillset, against those required to do a certain job. They are a personal gap analysis. In some areas you may meet the needs fully, and other areas may be lacking. Being aware of what is required in relation to each stage of your career is crucial in order to plan your own development. This section of the manual supports you to increase your career self-awareness and identify your gaps.
