You’re great at finding the best deal and winging it. Your motto may be, “If I don’t know something, I can figure it out.” You’re a pro at searching to learn something new. You’re the epitome of resourcefulness.
We’ve been conditioned to do it all – multitask like a champ.
But doing everything on our own is exhausting!
So just like everything else, you take on figuring out how to improve your career.
- Create and design your own resume and cover letter,
- Refer to the web for interview questions and practice.
- Wear your favorite outfit to your interview.
- Wing the case study interview, and
- Quickly send a follow-up email.
You haven’t heard A. Single. Word
Should you call? Email?
Or maybe this is you:
You tell your family and friends about the trouble you’re having at work. You feel you keep getting passed over for promotions and you think your boss has it out for you. Well meaning and loyal, they tell you that your boss is a jerk, and the company doesn’t deserve you. After a good “bash” party with your boss as the guest of honor, you feel better.
Until you have to go back to work on Monday…
Have you considered getting a career coach?
Compelling Reasons You Should Hire a Career Coach
With a career coach, you get to focus on your dreams, goals, and needs.
As a nurturer, you are usually busy helping everyone else and your needs are at the bottom of the list. Your career coach focuses entirely on what you need. At Phenomenal Image, we learn all about you. We discuss your purpose (and help you figure it out if you’re not sure) and what you want – where you see yourself in your career. During your session, your needs and wants take center stage and are the only thing on our agenda. You’ll be more productive because you are finally focusing on your goals (which puts you in a better space to better help others).
Your career coach can help you build your confidence and see your value.
It can be difficult seeing all you offer in your career. A career coach can provide an unbiased view of your unique experiences, knowledge, skills, and abilities relative to how you can benefit your organization. I help you realize your power and help you discover the significance of what you offer the world. Building your professional presence, you’ll be able to discern whether you are under-used and/or under-paid and change your career to align with your goals.
Your career coach helps keep you accountable.
Your career coach can confirm you’re doing what’s required to get you wherever you would like to be in your career. We will encourage, talk with you and track your progress. We will also challenge you when you are creating excuses for getting off-track.
Your career coach can help you become clear on your career path.
Your career coach can help you create a strategy to get you to your dream career. We can help you navigate the ebbs and flows of your career path, help you navigate difficult career decisions and stay focused on what’s next in your career. Your career coach helps you achieve your professional goals faster.
A career coach can help you gain perspective on overcoming challenges at work.
Your career coach can help you gain new insights about challenges at work. You’ll gain a greater sense of self-awareness and use your personal strengths. Unlike friends and family, who may be biased, a career coach is unbiased and can help you navigate through difficult career decisions.
This Is Important
As wonderful as a coach can be to your career, she cannot wave a magic wand and make your career dreams come true overnight.
Commit to investing in yourself and doing the work. When committed, a career coach can help you build a strong foundation that can be the fortress you need to navigate the maze of your career path.
Yes, it’s true that you could probably figure out what you need to do to get unstuck in your career –
But why not use that time to focus on doing what you need to do instead of trying to figure out what to do?
We have plenty of resources you are welcome to use that can aid in your career journey.
A great career coach has invested a lot of time and money to learn their craft. S/he has the tools, knowledge, and skills to help you excel in your career faster than if you go at it alone.
Can you afford (financially, mentally, emotionally) to forgo help with achieving your career goals?
We have a free resource that summarizes what you can expect from a coach. It’s yours, if you like.
