What is Career Coaching?
Career coaching is the professional method, process and techniques used by a career coach in career conversations. Designed to help you move on, up or out of the career problem you face. This means you discover a clear and well informed direction to make progress that you feel really good about. Essentially, career coaching helps you gain clarity and make decisions about what you want to achieve. Subsequently, you break down your goals into practical, manageable chunks. And finally, and only when you have a crystal clear outlook – you link this in a meaningful way to your work and life goals. This means you feel ready and confident to take action and resolve your career dilemma.
Your career coach will work with you to help you overcome barriers. Step around obstacles that can prevent you from making positive life and career changes. Career coaching will provide you with a professional, safe and confidential space. Essentially, you get to develop your work and career ambition in a practical and non-judgemental setting.
