3 Reasons Why You Need A Career Coach
Most of us aren’t happy with our careers.
We sit down to our computers, walk into our offices or stroll into the warehouse with the burning desire to get out of our workplace as fast as we can. Forbes says you aren’t alone. Dissatisfaction is the modern workplace epidemic:
- 48 percent of worldwide workers don’t like their jobs
- More than 80 percent of American workers feel stressed out at their workplace
- Only 30 percent of employees actually feel engaged with what they’re doing.
- 18 percent of workers hate every minute of their job
With so many people dissatisfied with their occupation, we decided to talk to Kathy Caprino, a Forbes columnist and one of Goaly’s expert coaches. Kathy told us hiring a career coach is a wise choice for anyone who finds themselves in the following three situations:
1. You know you’re not happy but you can´t figure out what you really want to do
You’ve come to the depressing realization that you hate your job but you really don’t know which career you’d want to dive into if you decided to quit. So, you imprison yourself in your current job.
“Your career coach will help you discover your true passions, then walk with you as you find the career that best suits your deepest longings and desires for a satisfying career.”
Your career coach will help you discover your true passions, then walk with you as you find the career that best suits your deepest longings and desires for a satisfying career where you can use your ability to meet even the most difficult challenges.
This type of self-fulfillment is a career coach’s specialty: they want you to succeed in what you love to do!
2. You know exactly what you want from your professional life, but you just can’t seem to get it.
For some of us, we’re in the career we love but, for one reason or another, we don’t’ have the ability (or so we think) to achieve the promotion, salary or accolades we desire. A career coach will help you identify the things which are holding you back.
“Your coach will help you see your blind spots, your weakness and reveal your limiting beliefs.”
You’ll discover that, most often, how you perform in the workplace has a lot to do with how you think in the workplace. Your coach will help you see your blind spots, your weakness and reveal your limiting beliefs – those thoughts we have that keep us chained to mediocrity.
When you’re stuck, lost and confused & you want help to craft a more meaningful, rewarding and successful livelihood.
It’s not always easy to make sense of your career and your aspirations. There are times when you find yourself completely confused about your choices, your expectations and your belief in yourself.
A career coach will help you discover yourself – what you want, what you don’t want, who you are and how much potential you have to create the life you’ve always desired.
“Your coach is an expert in the types of problems you face – they’ll have the tools to help you sort out the options, clear up the confusion and help you find your way.”
The road isn’t easy, but having a professional partner walk with you and help you see the best side of yourself is an invaluable transformational process.
Plus, your coach is an expert in the types of problems you face – they’ll have the tools to help you sort out the options, clear up the confusion and help you find your way to a more meaningful existence.
