Life coaches, career coaches, executive coaches, personal coaches. If you’ve been researching whether you should hire a coach, you may be unsure as to what type of coaching you need.
Many overlaps exist among the various types of coaching available, so don’t feel you have to identify exactly which type fits you best. It’s my job to understand as quickly as possible what’s up for you, where you want to go, and what’s needed for you to get there.
While it helps clients to know what types of coaching I offer, my approach is to address your specific challenge or situation – which may not fit cleanly defined coaching “types” – and proceed from there.
The focus here is on your becoming more effective, fulfilled, and satisfied in your career.
Career coaching helps you identify what success on your own authentic terms means. Once you know this for yourself, you can craft a plan to get there and start moving it forward.
Here are examples of the kinds of questions you might choose to work on:
Stress management is much more than finding ways to “manage your time” or “work stronger, not longer.”
Working together, we’ll develop strategies and tactics that work for you – and I’ll help you as you learn how and when to implement them. I can’t promise transformation, but some clients have told me that’s what they experienced.
Work-life balance can be tricky to implement if you’ve been working at 90 mph for years – simply because you may not know how to work and live any other way.
Work-Life Balance coaching is also for people who want to make a course correction in order to make more time available for priorities outside of work: young children, teenage kids, a dying or very sick family member, obtaining a professional certification, planning a wedding, or finding a spouse.
What is this stage of your life asking of you? Life coaching supports you in answering this question, figuring out how you want to proceed, and then proceeding.
These or other stage-of-life challenges can be addressed in coaching. Life coaching provides assistance in navigating these changes and the personal development “opportunities” that often accompany them.
