What is a career coach?
A career coach is a trained professional, who explores with you what is happening in your work life at present and drives you on to where you want to go to tomorrow. Their task is to help you to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. Your coach will empower you to reach your goal whether that is, for example, excelling in the workplace, choosing a career or study path, going back to work, achieving a work life balance or any other burning ambition you may have.
A career coach will use techniques based on core psychological principles and their own intuition. Your coach will provide you with the tools to confidently face difficult situations, push past emotional barriers and eventually view life with fresh, hopeful and enlightened eyes.
Just as sports coaching works with athletes to hone themselves into the fastest, strongest, most tactical competitors in their disciplines, career coaching helps people from all professional and personal backgrounds, improve their strengths and build upon their weaknesses, to make the most of their lives.
A career coach will not tell you what to do, or become personally involved in a client’s life. Career coaching is not about instruction, but about objectivity, structure and empowerment.
