Why Hire A Career Coach?

6 reasons to hire a career coach philadelphiaIn working with executive professionals in various industries for the past 20 years, I am often asked what are the benefits of hiring a career coach.  

Here are some of the top reasons to consider.

1. Accountability

You’ll have someone other than yourself to whom you are accountable. Your consultant will hold you to your commitments and move you steadily forward.

2.  Perspective

You’ll get a different point of view on your progress or your challenges. You’ll gain insights that will help you find solutions more quickly and effectively than you could on your own.

3.  Structure

You’ll have a proven, step-by-step framework for exactly what to do, how to do it, when to do it – and when to make exceptions to “the rules.”

4.  Support

You’ll have someone to complain to or celebrate out loud with – someone who is committed to your success. When you hit a roadblock, you’ll have someone to support you and guide you back into action.

5.  Experience

You’ll have a sounding board and seasoned advisor on your team when it comes to multi-phase interviews, complex negotiations, and ongoing career success in executive roles.

6.  Productivity

People who work with a qualified Career Coach are far more productive and focused in the search. They secure positions that are a better fit, within a shorter timeframe, earning higher compensation, with greater satisfaction.
