Professional Coaching is a strategic process which focuses on overcoming obstacles preventing you from obtaining your career goals. Throughout this process, you will learn how to identify key challenges and build your skills to effectively manage or maximize the support you require to be successful in your work environment.
Professional Coaching services vary in scope depending on the type of industry the client works in, the size of the company and the culture within which you are operating.
The most common themes include but are not limited to:
Career Transition Services
Culture & Diversity
TYPES OF SERVICE
Professional Coaching Services can be financially sponsored by the organization as a service to enhance and develop the careers of their employees. In such cases, the Coach will work collaboratively with the representatives of the organization and the employee to design and attain mutually agreed upon goals.
Progress reports and other relevant feedback will be provided to all parties at designated intervals throughout the process. This will allow for any customization or changes in the process to ensure the engagement is successful. Most importantly, the coach will work in a manner which respects the privacy of the client, ethics of the organization and requirements of the business at all times.
Alternatively, individuals may choose to purchase professional coaching services independently. In such cases, individuals are often seeking support to learn to effectively manage a current or upcoming issue that may be particularly challenging. Alternatively, individuals may also work with the Coach to effectively prepare and manage the next stage of their career. Examples include but are not limited to:
Changes in reporting relationships
Changes in culture due to mergers & acquisitions
