What does a career coach do? That depends on the career coach. Each coach is different and they'll have their own set of specialities and ways of working. Ultimately, we are all here to do the same job; help you to conquer your career dreams.
Each coach will have their own specific methods of coaching, and their routes to the destination may be slightly different. The role of a coach, in our opinion, is to guide you along your journey by being your ‘safe place’; enabling you to freely and openly discuss your challenges, concerns and apprehensions in order to identify the most appropriate and effective answers and solutions. Alongside this, a great coach is also able to fill the role of mentor; imparting their knowledge and experience, as well as challenging you when necessary, to ensure you maintain progress in the right direction.
One of the biggest parts of a career coach's role, is to be your trusted critical friend; to ensure you keep to a plan that enables you to stay motivated and energised. Remember, the process isn't going to be easy, it’ll take effort and consistency, but it’ll be worth it, we promise!
