Thinking about a Career Coach? Think about GottaGettaCoach!
"Yes, it's time for a Career Coach, and YES, you're ready."
A lot of people TALK like they're focusing on their career development, but they really aren't - they're just talking about how they're not where they want to be, career-wise. The telltale is action ... or not. You see there's no neutral position. If you're not actively working to move yourself ahead, then you're actually falling behind. Talk is cheap, and time passes quickly.
So what's next for you in your career? How actively have you been pursuing things?
What a Career Coach Does
Obviously, a career coach can help you complete these assignments, but that's not all. Career coaching can provide you with structures and insights to stimulate your learning, give you an objective sounding board to challenge and encourage you, and help you find the answers you need to questions like these:
What a Career Coach Does NOT Do
While a career coach can certainly help you clarify your thoughts about work, help you get more in touch with your passion for work, and help you prioritize -- and and hold you accountable for -- what you need to do with respect to your work, the truth is that you have to do the work. So don't expect a career coach to decide what your ideal job or career is, or tell you what industry you should work in, or find you a job or arrange interviews for you. Career coaching is NOT something that's done FOR you; it's done WITH you so that you can find your own answers, the one's that are best suited for YOU.
Maybe you're not quite ready for coaching, but would still like to get a better sense of some possible career paths. If that's your situation, here are a few inexpensive career assessments worth considering:
