Using a careers coach isn’t just for the world’s top CEO’s, you can make use of one as well. But the question is how. Well a good careers coach can help you achieve many things in life. Not only career related but personal as well. So let’s have a look at what a careers coach can do for you and why you should make use of one.
Are you always passed over for promotion? Well your careers coach can help you with you. A good careers coach will be able to identify any areas of your professional life that you need to work on. Maybe it’s your personnel skills that need some extra work. If you don’t ask yourself you’ll never know.
Your career coach will help you develop a plan of action. They’ll help you decide exactly what you want from your career and identify areas that you need to work on. This is in my view is the number one reason for using a career coach, if you don’t know where your going you’ll never get there.
Are you happy with your current career? Do you fancy a change? Well your careers coach can help you here too. Sit down and develop a plan to either retrain for a new career, maybe in project management or a complete change from IT architecture to programming.
Sit down with your coach and develop a plan of action. If you donâ€™t do this youâ€™ll just keep on plodding away in your current career and before you know it five years will have passed and you’ll still be unhappy. Don’t let your life pass you bye, Take control and take some action.
Achieve Your Dreams
Everybody has dreams but most people never achieve them. Don’t be one of those people; make the most of your life.
If you want to make your dreams come true you’ll need a plan, but more than that you need someone to give you the confidence to carry it out.
Once you’ve devised your plan it’s easy to put it to one side and forget about it. But when you have a coach they’ll push you and give you incremental goals to achieve along the way.
Setting your goals is perhaps the most important thing your and your careers coach can do together. It will become the blueprint for your whole life.
