The Right Career Coach For You
I’m unique in the world of career coaches because as an executive recruiter and career coach I’ve been helping people change and choose their jobs and careers for over 30 years. Most career coaches approach their work from a psychological or therapeutic perspective, they coach more by principle and best practices, not from practical experience working with hiring managers and companies. I’ve yet to find a career coach who has also been a successful recruiter, executive search and talent advisor.
I was also an early entrant into the career coaching space. In the late 90s, I trained with David Rock, a pioneer in offering career coach instruction and certification. I’ve counseled thousands of people in every imaginable industry, from entry level to the C-suite, all of whom were in the process of changing jobs or careers. And I’ve worked with hundreds of hiring managers from a wide variety of companies and industries.
Most career coaches will agree there’s a certain degree of pragmatism and mastery of subtle nuance required when repackaging someone’s career and work history. What makes me unique, and provides you with a value-add you’ll not find from any other coach, is 3 decades of hearing feedback from hiring managers and corporate HR departments about what they want to read, see and hear from candidates. I pass this all that data, plus so much more, onto you.
I take a very direct approach; I challenge your assumptions and beliefs, reflect back key themes and issues, and ask relevant and thought-provoking questions with a dispassionate and objective perspective. And I’m not shy about addressing difficult topics such as weaknesses and potential disparities between skill sets and desired outcomes.
