What is a Coach? Do I want One?
I’m sure over the course of your career many of you have received the advice, “You need to find a mentor” or heard during career discussion, “Do you have a mentor? You really should”. What did the concept of a “mentor” mean to you? Have you ever wondered if you need one? If any of this is resonating with you, let me shake this up a little and offer this – Would you try to fly an airplane without first getting some instruction and clear direction? Would you join a football team that didn’t have a leader? Would you….
My guess is, you probably wouldn’t, or at the very least might be much more successful if you HAD the support implied in the above scenarios. Your career should be no different and if you’re here, reading this, you too are looking for something different, some type of support that speaks to you in real terms, perhaps you too would like to shake things up a little! It’s time to get off the bench, charge down that field and grab a victory! You don’t need a series of motivational conversations, you need to dig into the details of what you want out of your career, you need someone by your side picking through the nitty gritty, someone challenging you, teaching you, COACHING you through real life situations and fine tune your career skills. You need a Coach who is by your side, helping you to prepare and practice, someone who is that honest voice in your ear pushing you to be the very best you can be but at the same time someone who is knowledgable enough to arm you with the skills to do it.
Over my career in HR, I have seen many separations, been part of many terminations and part of a lot of hiring. I understand the process and can help guide you through. I have helped so many people identify what they want and guided them along the journey to get it done.
