Career Coaching

LGNSW’s personal and career coaching services provide invaluable guidance and support for employees who are struggling with change, at crossroads in their careers or who lack the confidence to apply for roles they are well capable of performing. Our services can help council employees become more resilient, confident and empowered to embrace the next stage of their careers.


Career coaching services provide an external source of support during times of change, strategies for future work/life directions, increased confidence levels, improved communication skills, greater resilience and understanding of professional accomplishments.
