Career coaching addresses the areas that enhance and promote success in your career, including identifying which career path will best match your personal values and goals, how to best grow your current career, how to navigate a challenging work environment, skill development, career growth, transitions and change, and leadership development.
As your career coach, I work closely with you to identify your strengths and other attributes as we identify your vision and goals for your career. We utilize those strengths to build that vision and achieve those goals. For example:
- Career path: What would you really love to be doing for a living, and how do you make that a reality? Which are the most important factors to consider when looking for a new job or career?
- Challenging work environments: What is really going on? What is within your ability to change or influence? Do you quit or stick with it?
Skill development: What feedback have you received that lets you know you are particularly good in one area, but perhaps need additional information or growth in another? What patterns have you noticed that let you know your approach is working or not working?
- Career growth: Where would you like to be in your career in one year? Five? Ten? What actions do you need to take today to ensure that you create that vision? What are the things that could possibly get in your way?
- Leadership development: How effectively do you communicate your vision to your team or organization? How do you know? What would be different if you knew that everyone shared the same vision? How can you help to excite that vision in each individual?
Career Coaching Approach
As your career coach, I tailor my approach to you and your needs. My goal is to provide you a safe, completely confidential place in which to explore your vision, concerns, challenges, and successes. I offer tools, assessments, models, and ideas, but the agenda is completely yours. Most clients prefer to meet weekly for a 60 minute session. If you are experiencing big transitions or changes, you may want to meet more frequently at first, or for a longer period. I am always available by email.
