Tips to Help You Find a Career Coach Who Is Right for You
Updated: Sep 27, 2019
Are you in the middle of a mid-career crisis?
Are you tired of being pass over for promotion at work year after year?
Do you feel that you’re on the wrong career path?
Or maybe you don't even know what career path you should chose?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you’re not alone; it happens to the best of us. But, don’t despair -- a career coach can help you navigate through these difficulties so you can take your career to a whole new and exciting level.
Here’s the catch: not all career coaches are created equal. So, how can you find a career coach who’s right for your needs?
First Things First: How Do I Know That I Need a Career Coach?
If you’re experiencing anxiety, frustration, fear, unhealthy behaviors, and deep unhappiness with your career, you could use the expertise of a career coach. But that isn’t all; here are other clear signs that your job is in a slump and you need career coaching help:
Your roles, tasks or position at work make you feel deeply unfulfilled
You’re confused about who to trust at work
You have been hopping from one job to another without visible direction
Your career is in a rut, and you are not advancing
With that said, consider the following tried-and-true tips that are poised to help you zero in on the top career coaches:
A Great Career Coach Is Someone With Deep Passion, Commitment, and Desire to Help Others
The last thing you want is to approach a career coach who’s only interested in making a quick buck. You want someone with genuine passion and desire to help you make the most of your career. More than that, top career coaches go above and beyond to identify the root of your unhappiness at work and help you chart a better career course.
Understand What You Want to Learn from the Career Coach
Again, not all career coaches are carved from the same stone. They often come from such broadly dissimilar backgrounds. That means each career coach can offer you different insights, knowledge, and skills. That’s why it pays to know upfront what you want to learn from the experience. Do you want someone who’ll focus exclusively on your career or someone who will look to improve your entire life?
A Great Career Coach is Well-Researched
Experience is king when it comes to coaching. You want someone who knows the nitty-gritty of career excellence -- a coach who knows what they are doing.
When you want to find a career coach who’ll do a great job, it’s best to check out the credentials, perhaps call a few references, and, above all, ensure that the career coach has the passion for helping others.
