If you’ve ever played sports, odds are you had a coach. What was the true purpose of the coach? A good coach helps improve skills and stay ahead of the competition. Nowadays, coaching has spread to everything from personal fitness to your career.
Do I really need a career coach? If you are highly disciplined, already know what you want to do and how to get there, you can develop your own DIY plan of attack.
But - if you are:
➞ Sending out beaucoup resumes without success.
➞ Attempting a major career move.
➞ Finding the interview process debilitating.
It may be time to pull in a coach. According to Forbes, “The right way to hire a career coach” is threefold:
➊ Does the coach have a systematic accountability program with clear milestones?
➋ Do you respect and resonate with the coach?
➌ Does the coach understand and empathize with you?
The number one thing to keep in mind is that the coach is your partner in success, not a magician. You’re the one who will have to do the work to turbo charge your career. When have you pulled in a coach?
