What’s Career Coaching?

Career coaching is getting the support, help, and guidance you need to figure out how to reach your ultimate career goals. A career coach is there to ask questions, give you guidance, and help you overcome whatever challenges you’re facing in your career.

In a coach/client relationship, you control the agenda. We are trained and skilled in providing you with insight, support, and the direction you need to achieve the goals you have in mind. In other words, positioning you to reach your goals sooner rather than later when you try to do it on your own.

Many things come into play and, depending on what your objectives are, will determine the focus of your coaching sessions.

An ongoing coach/client relationship strengthens your awareness of what’s holding you back or showing up as road blocks that get in the way of moving forward and being able to focus your efforts on reaching the goal(s) you’re targeting.  A career coach helps you establish realistic goals, discover solutions to the challenges you are facing, develop action plans, build self-confidence, and instill motivation to take action.

It’s up to YOU to take charge of your career—not someone else.

Working with a career coach is working with someone who genuinely shares the same ultimate goal you have, creating and adding excitement during the process! The one-on-one career coaching experience is an excellent way to:

  • receive personalized advice, support, and guidance when making career decisions.

  • determine what steps to take and strategies to use.

  • come up with a customized plan that will keep you on track to accomplish what you set out to do

What will a career coach do for you? A career coach will…

  • challenge and inspire you to do your best.

  • be there to support you each step of the way.

  • give you feedback, back you when times get difficult, and will be honest and up front.

  • hold you accountable.

  • tell it like it is—not letting you get off easy when it comes to stepping up to the plate (unlike friends, co-workers, and spouses).

A career coach is your personal advocate and is there for you during a time that’s often filled with stress, doubt, and fear.

Career coaching will serve you best IF you’re willing to…

  • put forth effort and do the work.

  • let the coach do the coaching.

  • “try on” new concepts or different ways of doing things.

  • change self-defeating behaviors that limit your success.

  • And, you’re acting of your own free will (not at the bidding of others)

  • moving forward and making changes to reach your goals.

Bottom Line: No action, no results.
