ARE YOU READY FOR CAREER COACHING?
You might not be sure how, or if you will benefit from career coaching. Perhaps you are concerned about whether you have enough time to commit to the process in order to reach successful outcomes. At times, you may find yourself addressing issues that you hadn't previously been aware of. For example, have your work / personal values changed throughout your career? Is what's important to you now, what was important to you several years ago? Our shifting values over time may result in us feeling dissatisfied with our current work / life balance.
There are numerous factors impacting our career choices and clients who pursue personal career coaching with us are diverse in terms of their background and professional experience and the tangible reasons for using coaching services may vary widely.
For some people, we are a valuable resource to help them determine if they should re-train or consider a new role, particularly if they feel stuck or unhappy in their current career. Others want to learn how to improve their interview success rates, or develop their personal brand.
The common factor is that all our clients benefit greatly from having time to reflect on their skills, strengths and personal values and this empowers them to make meaningful career related decisions.
