Sustainable coaching

It is typical for clients to start with me at Soldrevet when they’re at times of transition. Together, we work to make sure that your transition fulfills your long-term vision while meeting your short-term needs. We spend less time talking about CV preparation and salary expectations; we spend our time finding your core desires and evaluating prospective job opportunities. We remove barriers put up by our own fears by coming at the job-search from new perspectives.

Recent transition experiences I’ve helped with

  • New directions after ending a post-doctoral research position
  • Navigating the empty space after leaving a “safe” contract
  • Walking away from impersonal job environments
  • International job search for a researcher with young children

What People Say

Working with Soldrevet kind of gives me tools to navigate my life. And I think one important aspect is stepping back and looking at things from a more objective perspective and being more comfortable that you are in, even if the situation is uncomfortable.

Well, you’ve been through a PhD, and postdoc, and then employment. You know how to work hard. And you know what it means to be in stressful situations, to deal with other people that you maybe disagree with. What also comes through with our conversations is you put a lot of importance on mental well-being. You see the importance of that aspect of somebody who’s in a job that has its challenges.

About TJ Preston

TJ has been helping students and professionals navigate career growth and career transitions before it was ever part of his job title. After the third or fourth person sought out his guidance on life-changing decisions, he realised he was good at it. Soldrevet was born out his desire to work with the people who have passion for the planet and compassion for others. Clients with science and/or research training express easy relationship building with TJ because of his own experiences in studying for a PhD, living internationally during post-doctoral training, living internationally (again) as a researcher and group leader, and now as owner and operator of Soldrevet.

In a way, when you say ‘sustainable development’ could also mean ‘For a person. Personal sustainable development.’ It’s the same idea.
