What exactly is Career Coaching?

Updated: May 7




Coaching is all about you - we work together to bring out the best in you - personally, professionally, in your life roles and relationships, spiritually and emotionally, all framed by a fulfilling career. We form a kind of partnership - you're always in the driver seat and I'm your co-pilot for a bit. You call the shots as I observe, reflect, feedback and keep you on track.


You have the answers!

The premise of coaching of any kind is that you have the answers within and I'm trained to help you bring them to the surface. As I said, you're calling the shots.

Do you ever find you're good at giving friends advice but wonder why you can't do it for yourself? We all need help to clarify our goals - it's impossible to see the wood for the trees in our own situation. It's all about perspective - working with a coach sets you up with a support system, a sound board and powerful accountability. I consistently check-in with you to see how things are going, what's working, what's not working and why, and to assess your next move.


Our focus together is on results, progress, actionable steps. To engage in coaching is a commitment and you need to be ready to do the work that comes with it. You need to be in a place where you are willing to stretch yourself and be open to growth and learning. If you are ambitious with ideas, vision and high hopes for the future - you are naturally open to growth and change.



Coaching is a process - so we can get to know each other and dive as deep as is necessary to release blockages and make lasting changes in your life.

People often wonder if coaching is like therapy or counselling? It is in some ways - it's all about you, we talk and discuss and examine your life from lots of different angles - the key difference is that you are starting from a point of wellness, not illness and our focus is on the future, not the past.

The confidentiality element is also the same - this is essential so we can build trust and work from the truth in an honest and integral way.



Objectivity


The objective eye your coach can cast on your situation is invaluable - why? Because they have nothing to do with your life - no history or pre-conceived notions of who or what you are or should be

Coaching is an opportunity for a clean slate - freedom for you to express who you are RIGHT NOW in your life - particularly with me as my focus is on freedom and thinking outside the box with your career objectives.


As your coach I also have an arsenal of tools to help you envision and create the life you want - tools like goal setting and confidence building and brainstorming.


Always remember though - people are people - you have to work with someone you click with, someone who gets you and above all someone who is highly professional.
