Many of our clients initially come to us as doubters. They have read many articles on improving their careers and question the benefit of hiring a career coach. We have heard comments such as, “I can do it on my own.” or “I don’t want to admit that I need help.”
Thankfully, we have worked with these doubters, and they now recognize the worth of working with a coach.
Top 4 Reasons to Work with a Career Coach:
- Advice Customized for You
There is so much career advice out there. Yet, while the information may be useful, all of it does not pertain to everyone. A career coach listens and understands your situation and provides expert assistance in identifying what can work for you.
- Time to Make Progress
Even if we get all the advice we need, life happens! A career coach will work with you and your current juggling of priorities and help you identify how you carve out time.
- Plan to Experiment, Iterate and Improve
We all know that sometimes we have taken action plans, and without encouragement and direction, we may not take action. With a career coach, you have someone that can encourage you to take action, review the work with you, make modifications, and set you on the path to continuous improvement.
A coach is that person that you can count on in your corner. While a coach will be your biggest cheerleader, a coach is also a partner that will hold you accountable.
