I’m coming up on my tenth year (?!) as a career coach, and it’s still as exciting as ever. I love to help women get clear about what they want, and how to get it.
Finding the right coach is such a personal decision. I’m not the right fit for every prospective client, and it’s as important to know when it’s not a fit as when it is.
If you’re considering a career coach, here are great tips from marketing consultant Dorie Clark, author of Reinventing You:
1. Understand when you need to reach out. Don’t wait until it’s too late to make a difference. You’ll need to strategize well in advance for that promotion or raise.
2. Identify what you want to learn. Only you can set the right agenda for yourself.
3. Give them a test drive. You’ll find tons of articles on my website that will give you an idea of my approach and philosophy. (And I never start a coaching engagement without a preliminary “get-to-know-you” conversation.)
4. Recognize it’s not forever. You need a coach for your present agenda. As you grow and your needs change, your coach likely will, too.
