Personal development coach and chartered accountant Carol McLachlan is now offering careers advice in Coach Carol's career advice group on AccountingWEB.
As a senior manager and director of resources of Ernst & Young’s north region, she has a wealth of experience to draw on and now advises accountants through her consultancy theaccountantscoach.com.
Carol helps individuals and organisations with a wide variety of professional and personal development challenges including career planning, work-life balance, performance enhancement, leadership skills, team building, assertiveness training, improving communication and managing conflict.
As part of her long-running association with AccountingWEB.co.uk, she is now available to field your questions and offer her expert advice on how to improve your personal effectiveness and career prospects. This week for example, the group has heard from an AAT student looking for advice on how to gain a position closer to home.
If you are looking for a new position, make sure to take advantage of this opportunity - but remember, it's a voluntary service. Please don't expect her to find a new job for you, instant answers or on-going support for free. She's also got to earn a living!
