Professional support for you
La Belle Ouvrage helps you refocus your career, understand the difficulties encountered in your job, redefine your priorities, focus on a specific objective, understand your work context, lift obstacles and become more proactive.
In each case, the goal is to work together to build the knowledge and the strategies required for your project. We are keen to develop your abilities to find out what is at stake, to develop scenarios, so that you can act accordingly. Therefore, your consultant will help to support you, and endeavour to be at your side, following the pace you decide to set.
This nevertheless leaves space for consulting, expertise and assessment, particularly during the implementation of the project, when it is faced with the realities of our field.
Below are a few examples of a situation where our support may be used.
Designing or revisiting an artistic and/or cultural project; going further, detailing the proposed focus, developing the uniqueness and relevance of ideas, make your project better understood.
Applying for a new position: defining your objectives, explaining your values and what is important for you in your work, making connections between previous and future experiences, helping you improve your CV and cover letter, preparing for the job interview.
Analysing and understanding the difficulties encountered in your job, gaining hindsight, elaborating new changes to be implemented, building up a professional identity, progressing, taking decisions.
Preparing to take on a new position, a new job : understanding a new professional environment, positioning oneself compared to others, identifying new skills and responsibilities to be taken.
Starting up and building new activities : identify why your project is unique, work out the economic and legal framework of the project, define your position as a leader from birth to management, set up a development strategy.
Preparing the end of your professional career and exploring how to carry out activities differently : Retirement is a major step and a decisive moment, when we can take stock and look back to our careers, as well as lay the groundwork for new projects. This milestone is also a chance to reflect on life-work balance and life after work. Therefore, it seems important to explore the particular implications of getting older for arts and culture professionals, whose work is often halfway between the professional and the personal spheres. We are here to help you design and build your project.
Finding and securing your place in the cultural sphere : find your place in your environment, understand how different jobs and disciplines evolve, discover possible gateways, build connections and resources, access trade standards.
Developing leadership tools to support an artistic and cultural project: business model, teamwork, organisation, scheduling, partnership strategy, etc… respectful of the values and the style promoted in your specific project.
