Career Coaching: A Navigation Program
Thinking about getting some career coaching?
I’m guessing you chose to become a professional helper (a therapist? a coach yourself?) because you wanted to be of help to people.
Combining that drive with a desire to have a successful career can be tricky for many people in the helping professions.
The thing is, you are the pilot of your career.
And if you don’t have proper navigation skills, tools and support. . .
you might find your career in a nose dive or in danger of a crash-landing.
Effective career development coaching helps you have a clear map for where you ultimately want to be in your career.
My husband is a retired Navy pilot and he has taught me a lot about the process of flight navigation.
In my own career as a therapist, consultant and instructor, I have discovered proper navigation has been the key to a successful take off, journey and landing.
Before we had GPS in our cars and on our phones, we relied on a compass in order to figure out where we were and which direction we were headed.
We used paper maps to determine where we wanted to go and how to get there.
When it comes to your career, there is no electronic GPS.
You must develop your own internal compass in order to remain oriented and arrive at your desired destination.
You gotta have a map that shows you not only the 2-dimensional roadways but also the topography and pitfalls along the way.
This is where it is supremely helpful to have a professional navigator by your side.
And that’s where I come in.
I am your professional career development navigator.
I know the ropes. I’ve been down these roads successfully for many years. I know where the pitfalls are and I know how to help you avoid the pot-holes along the way. I know the short-cuts and I have a collection of tools to help you create your ideal, successful career.
Based on my own experiences and the experiences of the hundreds of helping professionals, therapists and coaches that I have mentored, supervised and mentored over the years, I have created this value-packed program to help you navigate your career development so that you can feel fulfilled both financially and emotionally knowing you are serving others in need while also achieving true success.
In this program you and I will work closely together. You are the pilot. I’m your flight instructor, co-pilot and navigation expert here to help you develop the skills requires to fly solo and successfully.
No matter where you are in your career whether right out of graduate school or facing a shift and change in career direction, I can help you by digging into where you’ve been, where you are now and where you want to go.
The Structure of the Program:
- 8 Weekly 60 minute sessions via video-conference
- Weekly Training and Practical Application of Tools – a well organized series of weekly assignments from which you will see results right away
- An online shared documentation system with 24/7 access where all of your assignments, program-progress notes, session notes and questions/answers along the way
- Daily access to me via email and/or voice or typed text system for on-the-spot questions
The Substance of the Program:
Quick Assessment and Orientation Check – This is where I take a close look at where you have been, what you’ve done so far in your career and what your currently are in need of.
Mapping Your Journey Forward – Here we take a look at the potential destination options for your career journey and once we determine where you want to go we look at the lay of the land along the way. I help you identify the pit-falls so you don’t get off course, become lost or fall along the way.
Equipment & Systems Check – In this part of our work together I help you develop or fine-tune your time management system, your planning mechanisms, the nuts and bolts of your business and ensure all systems are well tuned and humming.
Launching & Landing – This is where we work on the starts and stops of your journey recognizing there are times you need to be in full throttle mode and times when you need to land, rest and reflect before taking off again. Having a self care plan is essential to a do-able, sustainable business plan and we will assess your energy levels and patterns through a specific tool I use and teach. We will also look at practical ways to make the most of your launch time to gain momentum in your career so you can enjoy the times you can coast on that momentum.
Want to get started?
I have very limited availability for new coaching clients. And I only work with people when we both feel we are a good fit because I want to help people who are ready for my help. I would love to know more about where you are and where you would like to go with your career. I ask you to fill out this application below which does not obligate you in any way. It simply allows me to assess whether I’m a good fit for your needs and from there I will contact you to arrange an initial 30 minute Connection Session so we can discuss the program and whether it it indeed a good fit for where you are at this time. During that call, I will discuss the fees and payment options as well.
