Barbara Wilson

Career Coach | Career Consultant | Speaker | Toronto, ON Canada

I am a career development and learning professional with a 20-year track record of improving individual capability, and helping teams and organizations achieve their objectives. What drives me: leveraging strength as an educator, trusted advisor, and coach to help others find clearer direction and goals, move forward with confidence, and achieve the success they define.

I am a trained CTI Co-Active Coach. I am a trained Career Development Practitioner. I understand and have work experience ranging from large for-profit corporations to smaller, community-based non-profits. I have recruited, hired, coached and managed people. I understand the demands placed on recruiters to find the best talent. I also understand the world of work has changed. It's not enough to go with the flow and wait for your manager to tap you on the shoulder. You have to #beyourowntalentagent: know your values and motivations, your strengths and accomplishments, and align your unique value proposition to the needs of an employer.

Know yourself. As I Coach, I help you find clarity to go forward and make a resonant choice for yourself:
- What is important to you in work, and life? What lights you up?
- How can you lean into your best self to find career fulfillment?
- How are you getting in your own way of your career progression?
- What strengths and skills do you enjoy using most?
- What problems do you want to solve?
- What are the values you are not willing to compromise any longer?

Know your target. As a Career Development Practitioner, I help you build the tools and skills to confidently find what’s next:
- Career exploration
- Networking
- Job search strategy
- Personal branding and LinkedIn makeovers
- Strategic résumé preparation
- Interview preparation

The SkillScan assessment helped me categorize my skills and the career fields I can further investigate. It was nice to see a list of my strength so I could get a big picture of what I am interested in or good at. Also, I thought it was nice that the SkillScan assessment helped me explore things I want to improve. This assessment was a good chance to explore my strength/talent or weaknesses as I develop my career goal.
