Individual Career Coaching Results
When I meet with a client, it’s rarely clear at the outset what the solution will be; that’s why it’s always a joy to see how the right solution becomes clear at the right time. Read about some of the ways my clients have discovered solutions to their career problems using my proven process.
Job Redesign for Greater Satisfaction
An executive who worked at a large healthcare organization for 10+ years had become dissatisfied with his job responsibilities. He felt a great deal of loyalty to the organization, enjoyed the people he worked with, and felt generally comfortable with his pay, benefits, and commute. Still, the job had evolved into work he no longer enjoyed — so much so that he was contemplating a job change. Through coaching, he was able to pinpoint specific changes he desired in his job responsibilities, negotiate those changes, and implement them over an agreed-upon period of time.
Attorney's Work/Life Balance
A corporate lawyer practicing with a large firm for 9 years struggled with work-life balance issues. Work was depleting, leaving him little time or emotional energy for himself, his wife, or his young children. He didn’t want to become like some of his acquaintances that had put worrying about work-life balance on the back burner in hopes of regaining it later. Through coaching, this lawyer realized he was being depleted by a job he wasn’t enjoying. He went to another firm, zeroed in on a specific type of law to practice, and now enjoys what he does so much it actually gives him extra energy to spend on himself and family.
"Right Mix" for Small Business Owner
A small business owner wanted to maintain her flourishing fitness business but felt that something was “missing” in her professional life. She wanted to explore additional services to offer clients. Through coaching, she realized she wanted to do something to exercise her mind as well as her body. She restructured her work to incorporate an additional activity for herself — a part-time accounting job.
Transition into "Retirement"
A school superintendent was contemplating her retirement and knew she wasn’t finished “working.” After 30+ years in education it was difficult to think about anything else. Through coaching, she created a personal vision incorporating her natural abilities, skills, personal style, interests, values, family, and goals. She successfully applied that vision to identifying her next job and incorporating the pursuit of her neglected interests and leisure activities.
