Are the challenges associated with dyslexia stopping you from reaching your goals and building the career you’ve always dreamt of?
Many of us dream about being in our ideal job or think about how great it would be to run our own business and be our own boss but what if the challenges associated with dyslexia are preventing us from doing this? Are these challenges affecting your confidence in taking the next step in your career?
Case studies tell us that individuals with dyslexia or other neuro-divergent ‘conditions’ can experience a lack of confidence and low self-esteem if they haven’t received the right support. We also know that the associated strengths dyslexic individuals have such as creative thinking and excellent oral communication skills are less likely to shine if confidence is low. Applying for a new job, becoming self-employed or starting a business can be a daunting process for anyone but imagine how difficult this would be if your confidence is low and you’re not aware of your own personal strengths and skills?
Recognising your abilities and being confident about them is crucial in helping you to move into a new job or career you love. To convince potential employers, clients and partners that you are the person they want to hire or work with, you will need to confidently describe your skill set and past experience. Many individuals require some coaching or guidance to help them to do this effectively and finding a coach with the ability to build your confidence, show you how to recognise your strengths and skills will help you to become a much stronger applicant for your dream job. In addition, a coach that has an understanding of your challenges and who can recommend strategies to help you cope more effectively will further enhance your confidence and well-being.
