About Me & My Practice

Many people are fearful of asking for help with their job search or career change. We think that’s crazy – just straight up nonsense. Would you perform surgery on yourself if you needed it, or pull your own tooth out?
Here are some reasons you need a career coach now!
* You could see a 3X return on your investment.
Wellness programs have been shown to provide approximately a 300% return on investment (ROI). In other words, companies who spend $1 in a wellness program earn $3 as a result of decreased turnover, fewer sick days, reduced health insurance costs, etc. – it’s no wonder wellness programs have experienced such tremendous growth — it makes financial sense.
* Your relationships will improve.
Another study shows professional coaching has even greater impact on things like relationships and teamwork. The study says recipients of coaching saw a 77% improvement in relationships, 67% improvement in teamwork, 61% improvement in job satisfaction and 48% improvement in quality.

* You’ll have more positivism in your life.
Career coaches are trained to focus on positive outcomes and to be a source of motivation. They tailor their efforts to help you find greater satisfaction. Since no two people are the same, having a career coach ensures you are getting assistance that speaks to your wants and needs – not someone else’s.
More importantly, it’s been proven the best way to get what you want is to surround yourself with positive people. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case with family and friends. So, hiring a career coach ensures you’ve got at least one positive influence in your life!
* You’ll be following in the footsteps of star performers.
One outdated stigma is career coaching is for people who are under-performing or troubled.
On the contrary!
Most smart folks who seek out career coaching do so because they want to be high performers and feel satisfied with their efforts. In the article above, according to Paul Michelman, editor of Harvard Business School’s Management Update, “Whereas coaching was once viewed by many as a tool to help correct underperformance, today it is becoming much more widely used in supporting top producers. In fact, in a 2004 survey by Right Management Consultants, 86% of companies said they used coaching to sharpen the skills of individuals who have been identified as future organizational leaders.”
So, by choosing to invest in coaching, you are saying to the world you believe in yourself and your ability to be a star performer!
* It doesn't take up a lot of time.
Many people assume coaching is like working out, you need to do it daily to see any results.
Not true!
Good coaches understand you need to work professional development into your schedule. Moreover, studies show just a few hours/month can have a huge impact. The article above states best practices in coaching call for between two and four sessions per month that last at least 20 minutes and up to 60 minutes.
A sweet spot for many coaches and clients seems to be three sessions per month for 20 to 45 minutes a session – a minuscule investment of time for the results achieved.
* Career coaches tell you what you NEED to hear.
While we may be friendly will not become your friend – I am your advocate for change. Unlike your family and friends who are opinionated and bias about you and your career, a career coach will look at you objectively and strive to empower you to take the necessary actions to achieve your goal.
In short, while the people in your life tend to tell you what you want to hear, your career coach will be honest and tell you what you need to hear to make your career goals a reality.
