Contract a Career Coach

We have already written about the importance of having a phenomenal résumé/curriculum, of knowing yourself as a professional and knowing how to articulate your characteristics and personal history, about the need to use and constantly evaluate multiple strategies, about the need to prepare for interviews, about the practice of networking and about the need to know the market and carefully select companies that have to do with you and that give you the opportunity to grow. Today our theme is: what is the advantage, or, in fact what are the advantages of hiring a Career Coach.

I recently heard about a successful entrepreneur and C.E.O., a sexagenarian who has three career coaches in his support network guiding him in three different areas. If a successful senior manager, in his sixties, thinks he needs three coaches, how many coaches does a professional at the beginning or in the middle of his career need? Is there any benefit to hiring a career coach? Eric Schmidt, C.E.O of the Google company thinks so and Sheryl Sandberg, C.E.O. of Facebook too, just to mention a few. If these big names in the market believe it is beneficial, they must be right, correct?

Reflect…

  • How has your performance as a professional been?
  • If you have no job, how long have you been unsuccessfully trying to get a new job position? Don’t you need help?
  • Are you happy with your job?
  • Have you been able to develop healthy relationships in the institution where you work?
  • Are you involved in a conflict, you do not see a solution for it and is it making you feel uncomfortable?
  • Do you have dreams and aspirations and is pursuing their fulfillment?
  • Are you growing professionally or are you stagnant? 
  • Have you been investing in your professional development?
  • How long ago did you receive a raise or get promoted?
  • What is the next step for you in the company hierarchy?
  • Would you like to change your profession, but do not know how to start?
  • Are you unhappy, but do not have any idea about what you would like to do and what profession to embrace?
  • Are you aiming for a leadership role?
  • Do you want to become a better leader?
