Certified Career Coach

What is a Career coach?

A career coach is simply someone who helps people to achieve their career goals. Career coaching is a specialist skill. Unlike life coaches who focus on a wide range of issues, career coach’s focus specifically on work related issues.

Individual goals vary. Some people hate what they are doing but feel trapped and unable to identify alternative job options. Others know what they want to do, they just need somebody to provide a bit more focus and to help them to put intentions into action.

A career coach helps people to both identify and make the changes they desire. They help people to gain greater clarity about their criteria for job satisfaction, and longer-term career goals. From these initial insights, the career coach helps people to generate career options and an action plan that will help to fulfil their potential and minimise costly errors along the way.

A good coach’s toolbox includes a structured and sound career development framework, coupled with a creative, lateral approach to problem solving.
