What Is The Career Coaching Program?
Career coaching helps you navigate the challenges of your career by helping you establish professional goals and providing the emotional and mental support needed for a career change. The job of a coach is not to tell you what to do, but to back you through decision making, while allowing you the take the time and space to talk about your feelings, which can give you a better understanding of your personal career goals and their impact on your life.
A Career Coach can help you make sense of what you desire out of your career, the skills you will require to get there and how you can develop those skills, these initial steps will set you on your way to the fulfilling career you want.
What The Career Coaching Program is not
The Career Coaching Program is not about your coach giving you suggestions or advice. They are not mentoring or counselling you.
If you commence a series of coaching sessions and it is deemed that coaching is not the correct support mechanism for you at this moment in time, this will be discussed with you directly to find a suitable solution to support your onward journey.
How does coaching work?
Different coaches use different models to structure their sessions. A popular model is the GROW model, which is an acronym for the areas explored, Goals, Reality, Options and Way forward.
This model keeps you moving forward towards your goal. Your coach will be asking you questions, listening to your responses, challenging you while all the time remaining non-judgemental regarding the details and not offering you any advice.
How Can The Career Coaching Program Help Me?
There are multiple ways a career coach can assist and benefit you. However, it is up to you to decide what you take away from the coaching and the reasons that made you seek coaching in the first place.
What a Career Coach will cover differs in different cases; nonetheless, some common topics are:
Career progression within your current organisation
Exploring options and narrowing down the "perfect career" for you
Recognising and overcoming possible hindrances
Improving skills and experiences
Framing attainable goals and developing an action plan
Supporting career path change
Creating work and home life balance
Overcoming the feeling of career stagnation
Positioning for future career opportunities
Easing into work after long-term leave or sickness
Still Not Sure About The Career Coaching Program?
It is ok if you don't know precisely what you want, it is entirely reasonable, and it happens to most of us. However, you can take ease in the knowledge that there are options available that a Career Coach can help you explore. Career coaching can aid you in identifying the skills you have; recognising the jobs you might be interested in and provide you with the support you may need to achieve your goals.
Career coaching isn't limited for people with full-time careers, schools or college students can also benefit from coaching, especially those who feel lost after completing their education and are having a difficult time knowing the next step.
