You had a big decision to make
when you were all of 18 or 19 years old

You were supposed to decide what to do with the rest of your life. But life doesn’t work that way. You don’t work that way. You are a dynamic creature who grows and changes with age and experience.  So it makes perfect sense that your life and career will grow and change too.

Check out the following video that highlights one of my recent clients, Elliott, who I helped navigate a career change when her music industry job was lost to COVID.

Your life doesn’t have to be broken
in order to reach out for career coaching

You don’t have to be at a point where you hate your job. Maybe it just doesn’t fit you very well anymore. Or maybe you just want to try something different.  Or maybe you’re caught up in the rat race and looking for more fulfillment. It’s time for a change.

There are a number of reasons to reach out for coaching

It’s Dilemmas Like

I’m totally burnt out and have no idea what to do about it.

How can I find a career where I really get to use my gifts?

Is this all there is?

I feel like I’m living a version of Groundhog Day, doing the same thing day in and day out.

COVID has killed my industry sector – help!

How can I feel better about myself?

I need more work life balance.

I thought if I made it to this point in my career I’d be happy, but I’m not.

I’m so overwhelmed! There’s never enough time.

On paper everything looks great career-wise, but I still feel like something’s missing.

How do I get back into the workforce if I’ve been gone for a while?

I should be happy by now, but I’m not.

How do I make it to the next level in my career?

What should my next move be in my career?

My Story

A number of years ago, I was struggling with my career. I spent day after day staring at mind-numbing spreadsheet after mind-numbing spreadsheet, waiting for the hours to pass so I could escape to happy hour.

One day, I finally reached my breaking point, and I called a career consultant to make an appointment. One very large sum of money later, I had a fancy 57-page report to show for what I had spent. The report listed possible careers from marketing to teaching to even law enforcement, all based on traits in my personality profile. It was highly entertaining bedtime reading.

Two years later I was still stuck in exactly the same place. So I did what any well-intentioned person without a clue would do. I went back to school and got an MBA. Another two years and thousands more dollars later, where was I? Right back where I had started when I first graduated from college 10 years before.

In my not so humble opinion, here’s why most career coaching fails. It focuses on the what as opposed to the why. That’s what we are going to spend your initial coaching sessions figuring out – your why. Then we’re going to work on the how – how you actually make your why happen, which eventually will lead to the what.

First comes your why, then comes your how, and then comes your what. That’s the secret to career coaching that works! Sound good?
