Are you stuck in a rut that you can’t seem to shake?
Maybe you’re looking to change careers or find work you feel passionate about?
You might feel hopeless and purposeless, or possibly in two minds about seeking assistance because of pride or because you believe you should be able to figure it out on your own.
But the truth is that lot of us do need help, and there’s no shame in admitting that.
Do you have someone in your corner? Whether your goal is to transition to a new career or move up the organisation chart within your current company, having a career coach in your corner can be the key to achieving your career goals. The expert advice that a career coach provides can accelerate your job search, help you negotiate a pay raise, or build a case for a promotion. Professional career coaches are skilled and trained in helping you create a personalised plan designed to meet your goals.
Career coaching typically consists of a one-to-one meeting between you and your coach. A session usually lasts 45 to 60 minutes each. Usually, there is an initial complementary conversation or ‘chemistry’ session where the coaching company and client understand a little more about each other and see if they think that together they are the best coaching partnership. Most people meet their professional coach once a week, although some people meet every two weeks or even once a month.
At the start of coaching it is helpful to meet weekly at least a few times so that you can begin to get momentum towards your goals. Once you’re making progress and keeping up your motivation, you can meet with your coach every two to three weeks so that you have plenty of time to work on your assignments between sessions.
Many people who are making good progress then cut back to coaching sessions monthly, or every six weeks, to maintain their gains. When the time is right, you and your coach will both know that your work together is done. You’ll be able to continue your journey towards success independently and apply everything that you’ve learned in coaching to your new goals.
Career development offers both immediate and long-term benefits:
- Achieving a higher salary
- Improving your marketability
- Minimising risk
- Enhancing job satisfaction and interest
- Positioning yourself for future job opportunities
