Would you like to talk with Career Coach?
If you are reading this, you may be wondering, “Is career coaching right for me?” or “Should I invest in a career coach?” You may have heard that coaching is expensive but, on the other hand, it can get you to your goals faster than you can on your own. Let’s look at why coaching helps so many people.
Think about tennis or gymnastics or ping pong. You aren’t going to be very good the first time you give one of the sports a try. In fact, you can try and try and may never become anything but mediocre! But, if you hired a coach or had someone who is skilled in the sport teach you, you could excel. Managing your career shouldn’t be any different.
School doesn’t teach you how to manage your career. It only teaches you how to do a job.
Feedback from mentors, trusted role models, and experts is how we improve ourselves. Go it alone and you have to learning from your mistakes; which can be a very expensive and long way to learn. It costs you time and money – as in the money you lose by not earning what you are worth. When you work with a coach you reduce your learning curve and minimize mistakes dramatically. You immediately benefit from your coach’s years of experience and education as well as the insight your coach has gained on what makes their clients successful.
The Best Investment You Can Make Is In Yourself
Look at the successful people you admire and you’ll see that they have a team of advisors guiding them to become even better in the important areas of their life. They don’t view coaching as a cost but rather an investment.
Many professionals are aware that a career coach can help them when they are in the midst of a job search. Resume writing, interview preparation, and job search strategy often the reasons individuals think about hiring a career coach. Other reasons people hire a career coach includes when they are pretty sure they need to take their career in a different direction. Very often this is because they have been unhappy in their current career/job long enough to know they need something different. Oftentimes they aren’t sure what that that next career is, or are afraid to make a change, or want to make the change but don’t know how to go about it.
Coaching for Career Development
Career coaches also provide just as much value to clients who are perfectly content in their current job. They help people develop strategies for moving up in their career, developing high level skills like communication, leadership, and negotiation. They also help people when they are struggling to make a wide variety of decisions related to their career. This is what we call Career Development.
Some individuals are fortunate enough to have a mentor who can help them ask and answer these important questions. Do not expect your your boss to look our for your career. That is your job, not theirs. Most people need a professional who can help them think through these scenarios. You might be able to develop a mentor-relationship with a senior person at your company or in your network. If this is not possible, a career coach that specializes in career development is a great choice.
No matter what your reason for working with a career coach, your coach will help you prepare a plan to accomplish your goals for the next stage in your career. Career coaching is for the “now” in your career and the “what’s next” in your career.
