“Start today creating a vision for yourself, your life, and your career. Bounce back from adversity and create what you want, rebuild and rebrand. Tell yourself it’s possible along the way, have patience, and maintain peace with yourself during the process.”
Is there a faster and more harmonious way to finding career happiness?
Do we need to endlessly bump into the same road blocks because we always take the same route?
Are we all alone in our quest of finding a dream job?
The answer to all these questions is a big resounding NO. There’s a comfortable option: career coaching.
Career coaches help their clients to zoom in on their vision and create a solution-focused plan to make their goals happen. People looking for career coaching are likely to be high performers and ambitious individuals longing for more mastery and purpose in their careers. They are thinking about a new role, full career change or transition, or mastering a new challenging task in their professional life.
Keeping it real
Almost everyone will, at some point, have some career problems that they’re not sure how to handle. And that’s where a career coach can really come in handy. Clarity is power. It helps you make better decisions. It sharpens your mind. Confusion leads to mistakes and blind alleys. As a leader you need a vision for your career. A career coach is someone who know the shortcuts, and magic doors leading to new career ‘story’ for you.
Support and accountability
A career coach wants you to succeed. They are your personal cheerleader. A career coach can help when you just feel a little stuck in your career, a little lost or confused, or need some extra motivation. They will with guide you through career options, selecting from career choices, changing careers, CV, and cover letter writing, focusing and targeting a job search.
Living into possibility
Anything is possible! A well-trained coach will not buy into the limiting stories you’ve created about your career and capabilities. Sometimes we need help in breaking down the walls of the ‘impossible’ around our careers. You can be, do and have more, and a good career coach will show you ways to make it happen.
Uncover what you really want
It can take years to figure out what it is we really want to do. Through trial and error, we spend our time studying something new or try out different jobs until something finally clicks.
A coach will give you personalized, tailored advice to help you realize what these ideas and threads could lead to. They will help you discover what you want out of your career and how to get it. You’ll come out from sessions feeling confident that you have found a career that will bring you balance and satisfaction, and the steps to make this a reality.
Now that you know why you need a career coach it is up to you to make the first move…
