The only way talent and career management will truly succeed is by supporting and being part of the business strategic plan, and ultimately part of the culture or mindset of the organisation.
We work with businesses and organisations to create that culture and mindset by supporting their people throughout their employment journey, from successful on-boarding, goal focused career coaching, innovative talent retention strategies and when appropriate, preparation for their release.
We work with organisations to reduce any risk that on-boarding can create by supporting individuals to transition into their new role, new team and new context with impact and ease.Find Out More
We work with individuals to be more self-aware, to identify their values and career goals, and to develop a structured action plan so that they achieve their desired outcome.Find Out More

In our Lifestyle Choices programme we give time for self-assessment and reflection and we’ll pose some questions that clients can set out to answer. Our aim is to open this new world to exploration and throw in some ideas and helpful direction along the way.Find Out More
“My CDS coach has helped me understand many issues that were affecting my work and personal life to the point now where I am much happier and delivering results I didn’t think were possible. She is practical and resourceful as well as caring and inspiring and I would, without hesitation, recommend her to help anyone who was looking for coach.”Senior Programme Manager – Energy Sector
“My CDS coach provided me with the opportunity to bounce ideas around, acting as an off-the-wall sparring partner to generate ideas which led to “eureka moments” post the session. I valued the confidential, independent, non-judgemental nature of the conversations.”Head of Technology – Finance Sector
“I enjoyed the whole coaching journey. From the initial meeting where I was asked to articulate where I thought I was in terms of my current working environment and the challenges I was facing – with too many plates spinning, right through to my current role and work life balance. The opportunity to share my experiences in an open and safe environment without judgement was hugely beneficial.”Senior Leader – Finance Sector
