When you first entered the workforce, you probably didn’t anticipate the economy turning so sour. You’ve spent many years diligently promoting yourself and establishing a nice set of skills – only to find out your company can’t afford to keep you around.
So what do you do now?
While it may seem like everyone is unemployed, there are job positions being posted. A career coach can help you discover how your options match your values, lifestyle, priorities and long term goals.
Many people who hire career coaches quickly discover this is a potential career that allows them to produce fulfilling results in both their personal and professional lives. A certified professional coach helps individuals and businesses in a variety of ways, including creating a clear vision and goal achievement strategy; becoming more aware of what beliefs, skills, attitude, behaviors and resources are needed to succeed; streamlining decision making and ensuring it matches goals and priorities; forming a detailed, specific plan that lays out key milestones and progress; and, holding clients accountable to what they want to do and who they want to be.
