Having a trusted partner to help you navigate the biggest moments in your career can be a life changer. Whether we realize it or not, we're constantly being faced with decisions and opportunities that make the difference between achieving our career goals and missing out. Do you ever wish you had someone to give you advice on how to:
- Make a great first impression when starting a new job
- Build an awesome resume to help get a job
- Run through some really tough interview questions
- Figure out the best way to handle a difficult co-worker
- Create a plan that will help you get a promotion
- Get more comfortable talking with senior executives
This is why so many people have started using a career coach. Its a comfort to know you've got someone on your side who can help you make the best career decisions and capitalize on opportunities when they arise.
Here are the question I get asked most about career coaching:
I like the idea of career coaching, but how does it actually work?
A coach is like a partner in crime for your career. Coaching sessions are typically 90 minutes and done using Skype. But even though we have structured sessions, I'm also available to you via email, phone and text to help you deal with the things that inevitably come up in between our scheduled meetings. The first step once you've decided you're interested in career coaching, is to do a free 30 minute consultation. This is so we can get to know each other and decide if we want to get into a coaching relationship - its a bit like dating before getting married. I take coaching very seriously and I'm very invested in my clients' success - its nice to get to know each other a bit before we start.
What will we talk about? I'm not really sure what to expect.
Every coaching relationship is a little bit different. The most important thing is that we work on the things that will help you achieve the goals you have for yourself. Sometimes a good starting point is actually working through what those goals are and what they could be. Here are some examples of common coaching session topics:
- Building a killer 30-60-90 day plan when starting a new job.
- Navigating a difficult or contentious relationship at work.
- Working on how to communicate with your boss and other executives.
- Advice for negotiating a new job offer or salary increase
- Building a plan to get promoted or get a raise
What's different about your approach to career coaching?
There are a lot of great career coaches out there. My approach is unique for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, I have made every career mistake you can make and somehow I've managed to make it to the top. As a senior executive myself, I have a unique perspective to share. I can help you understand what your boss and other executives are thinking and build plans to make a real impact. I've also hired and promoted hundreds of people over the years so I can provide a first hand look into what it takes to get hired and have success. I also think my approach to coaching is unique because I get personally invested in your success. Most of my client have been with me for years - we're partners. If they have a problem on the weekend, in the middle of the night, on a holiday - I'm available.
How much does it cost?
Coaching is $200.00 (USD) for a 90 minute session with discounts available for 4 and 12 session bundles. Each session includes pre-work and post session follow-up. Some clients like to do one session per month, others do one session per quarter and many do one session per week. We can create a package that works for whatever you need.
