Why Do You Need a Career Coach?

 

By LISA SWAN

You may think that you are doing fine in your career, but are you really? Or perhaps you know that you would like to do something better, but you just don’t know how to get there. Why not see if you can truly be all that you can be? That’s where a career coach can help.  A good one can help you gain clarity and work with you to resolve your career issues.

Here are some of the things a career coach can help you with:

  • Getting started in your career: Perhaps you are just out of college. Or maybe you are in the workforce after taking time to raise your children. Whatever your life situation, a career coach can work with you to make sure you make the right impression in your workplace.
  • Finding a fulfilling career path:  With a career coach, you can get help on how to make a career path that is right for you. It is not enough to have a prestigious job; you also want to have a career that makes you happy. A career coach can work with you to help you find the type of work that will make you happy. Yes, really.
  • Deciding on a career change: Perhaps you are unhappy with what you are doing now. No worries. A career coach can work with you, talk about your desires, interests, and dreams, and help you come up with a new career path; one that will make you happier.
  • Growing and developing in your career: We can always be better at what we do, and a career coach can help you be all that you can be. Maybe you want to develop your leadership skills, or your communication abilities. Perhaps you want to learn more about your field, so you can get a promotion. Whatever it is you want to improve, why not talk to a career coach?
  • Improving work-life balance: What you do for a living is important, but it should not be the only thing going on in your life. Career coaches can help you have time for your family, personal interests, and desires outside of work. Instead of feeling like life is passing by, you can have a great life.
  • Getting along with others: You can have the best job skills in the world, but if you don’t get along with others, you may not succeed in your career. A coach can help you better deal with other people.
