Career Coaching

What can I expect from Career Coaching?
It depends on your needs. Here are some ways that we assist:


  • Improve your circumstances in your current organization.
  • Guide you to a better job; help change career direction.
  • Update your resume and job search tools; become more connected in the community.
  • Help you become more motivated; overcome performance difficulties in your work.
  • Examine ways you would like to improve how you work with others.
  • Re-balance priorities when you’re uncertain where to begin.

Business owners

  • Assistance in evaluating the status of your firm now, and help in setting direction for the future.
  • Marketing methods and ideas for your business or professional services.

What do I get?

  • A skilled partner with more than 20 years experience working with individuals at all stages of their careers.
  • A person who will assist you in setting a direction; encourage you as you move forward.
  • A sounding board for your career or business hypotheses.
  • Someone knowledgeable about the community and its resources.

How will we work together?

  • If you’re unsure about whether we will work together effectively, call with questions or schedule a 30-minute complimentary meeting. During our time together we can learn more about you and your goals, and you can determine if our work style is compatible with your needs.
  • Once we have decided to move forward, we ask clients to complete a goals and objectives inventory that will help us set direction for our meetings. Although you will need to think about your answers, this takes less than 20 minutes to complete.
  • In addition, we provide a Services Agreement that outlines our mutual responsibilities as we commence our working relationship.

How often will we meet?

  • You set the pace of your work and set goals for progress. If you are interested in making a job or career change, more frequent meetings will help us stay on track and move forward. Meeting less than twice a month makes it difficult to make substantial progress.
  • Some people have very directed goals and will complete this process in a brief period.
  • Major life changes take time. Expect a change of direction to take 6-18 months.
  • At each of our meetings we will set goals and determine steps to complete before our next session. This process will assist your progress.

What about confidentiality? I don’t want my current employer to know that I am considering a change.

  • Our work is done in strictest confidence. You determine if and when our work together is discussed outside of our office. When you begin seeking information about other positions, you may choose to talk with others about your career exploration. Together we will determine the best strategies for discreetly exploring new opportunities.

How can I learn more about how you work and if this is right for me?

  • If you would like to talk with a current or former client for perspective on our process, we will arrange a referral. This is a relationship critical to your future success. We are happy to discuss your current circumstances in confidence.
