We spend time discussing jack’s personality and what feels important to him. Jack’s current employment is making him unhappy and as a consequence he ‘can’t see the wood for the trees’. We focus on all the positive elements of Jack’s career and identify that he has a wide and well-connected network. We consider how his contacts could be of use in re establishing himself and opening new opportunities. Jack is a specialist in a very niche field and we talk through where else his skills could be used.
