10 Reasons

Still not sure if coaching is the right "next step" for you? Here are 10 reasons to get started...

1. Life is Short

A huge chunk of your life is spent at work. Don't just put up with "Ok", "It's alright" or worse "I hate it". Work with a career coach to plan and implement the life you want to lead. You only live once.

2. Exploit Your Talents

Work with a career coach to assess your strengths and identify your transferable skills. What work do you want to do in the future? The clearer your vision is for the future, the easier it will be to get there.

3. Add a Career Coach to Your Team

You may be an expert in your job, but it's unlikely you are an expert in job hunting or how to change careers. Successful people surround themselves with a successful team to help them achieve their goals.

4. An Independent Point of View

Working with a career coach means you can be totally honest about your ambitions. You don't have to tailor it to what you think your boss, work colleagues, friends or even partner wants to hear.

5. Invest in Yourself

We all spend money on clothes, holidays, cars and houses - how much do we spend on investing directly in our success and fulfilment? Hire a career coach for 3-6 months to work out your values and what you love to do.

6. Reach the Top and Stay on Top

A career coach can help you become more successful and stay being successful. Top sports people have them, so do musicians and dancers. Coaches who work with them to challenge and support them to be their best.

7. Measurable Targets

Work with a career coach to fine tune your CV, practice difficult interview questions and present yourself in such a way as to demonstrate your passionate interest in the job to which you are applying.

8. It Doesn't Have to be this Way

Life doesn't have to be a drudge…Monday morning blues…. Sunday nights getting tense again. You can do something you love to do, live the life you want to live - you only get one chance.

9. The New World of Work

Things have moved on from a job for life. It’s unlikely we will stay with an employer for all our working life. The increase in contracting and flexible working gives us the opportunity to shape our working lives closer to how we want them to be. Organisations are not duty bound to manage your career – it’s up to you.

10. Times are Changing

Technological advances mean new jobs are continually being created and old ones can disappear altogether. A good career coach will develop your skills so you can learn to make the right decisions. Work with a career coach to reinvent yourself as the marketplace changes.
