WHY WORK WITH A CAREER COACH?
Support - A coach actively listens to what you are saying and what you aren’t saying. They will create a safe environment where you are comfortable and can talk without judgment. Looking for work can be extremely isolating. Working with a coach provides the necessary support to move forward. A coach provides non-judgmental guidance and can offer different perspectives and opportunities. They’ll help you identify where you are stuck, what the obstacles are between you and your dream job, and illuminate the path to what you really want.
Focus - A career coach will help you focus on what you really want to do and where you want to do it by identifying your values, interests, talents, and passion. They will help you discover what is really important to you and how that relates to finding your ideal career.
Structure and accountability - A coach will set up regular coaching meetings with you and assist in developing a plan to achieve your career goals. Looking for work can be frustrating, annoying, and demoralizing and it may be difficult to know where to start. Having regular coaching sessions will lend structure and stability to your career transition. A career coach will customize a program to suit your individual needs and meet you where you are, whether at a career crossroad or in job search mode. They will provide the necessary accountability for you to achieve and exceed your goals, far faster than you would on your own.
Confidence and your personal brand - When you are out of work you may lack self-confidence and your perspective on successfully finding work may become clouded. Career coaching can provide you with fresh perspectives on the challenges and opportunities when finding meaningful work, give you better awareness of your strengths, accomplishments, unique value proposition, and your own personal brand.
