What is Career Coaching?
Career coaching is grounded in evidence-based approaches incorporating a number of coaching psychology theories and tools. It aims to create a positive outcome regarding career direction, work satisfaction and personal fulfilment.
While the sessions can focus on specific skills, performance or development, often a ‘whole of life approach’ is taken, incorporating both work and non-work related development.
At Careers4mum we believe the best coaching conversations are based on open and honest dialogue. We co-create a productive and reflective space with our clients where they are challenged and supported to achieve success.
Why should you engage a Career Coach?
Career coaching can support you to achieve success in a number of areas. The reasons to engage a career coach are endless. Some of the common goals discussed during coaching sessions include:
- Career change
- Presentation anxiety
- Establishing success quickly in a new role
- A transition back into the workforce
- Re-establish motivation at work
- Stress management
- Work-life balance
- Personal growth and development
- Career planning
- Motivation and time management
- Interpersonal skills
What to expect?
Generally each and every coaching session will be different depending on what goals and challenges are discussed, however most sessions aim to create the following:
Help you set clear and motivating goals
Challenge your current thinking and behaviour patterns
Generate novel action plans to achieve your goals
Maintain your focus and commitment
Keep you accountable to your agreed actions
General coaching process
Together we will commit to a regular time (usually once a fortnight) where we meet either in person, over the phone or on Skype. Typically a coaching session will last for an hour; however this can be changed to suit your personal requirements.
In addition to your hour coaching session you will have access to email support between sessions where the key challenges and actions from the previous session are further developed.
All coaching is completely confidential.
We have a number of career coaching packages to suit your individual needs.
