As a Career Coach, I help my clients find the passion they have lost in their chosen careers or to find the courage to move into a brand-new career. The entire career coaching process - from exploring possibilities, to the moment of discovery and finally, implementing the plan, is very rewarding for me as the coach as well as for my client(s).
How does Career Coaching can help a client?
- Career coaching enables clients to discover their own answers and be inspired to live a more passionate, fulfilling life. This self-discovery is what breathes life and power into the decision-making process.
- The answer to “what you should be doing with your life” must come from you (the client). However, there are times, when some clients truly do not know the answer and they need a coach to help them discover it.
- In most instances, people do know the answer, but either are afraid to “listen” to it (because it will involve work & much self-reflection), or are unsure where to begin.
Career coaching is effective because it provides the courage, support, and direction necessary for answers to come alive. Anyone can be inspired to live a more passionate, fulfilling life.
Common client expectations explored during coaching:
Insight – Deeper understanding of who you really are and what type of career would bring you renewed purpose and meaning. (this may involve taking various assessments) ** Defining your values and beliefs, identifying your strengths & weaknesses and career interests.
Planning – Creating Roadmaps for taking your career to the next level.
Listening – A Coach can be used as a sounding board to talk out ideas and brainstorm with client. A coach is always on your side, wanting what you want and encouraging you to get there.
Interviewing – Helping to prepare for interviews. Role plays are an effective way to sharpen the interview skillsets.
Networking – help client(s) leverage existing relationships or grow additional networking relationships
Accountability – A Coach will provide a supportive, yet disciplined presence, that will keep the client on track.
**Assessment administration will vary depending on individual client needs.
