The added value of a career coach is present when you start to look at things from a different angle than before. Your awareness will grow by the questions asked and through the assignments. Besides this, you will also receive valuable tips about how to explore the labour market effectively.
The `who am I’ question is key when reflecting on personal and professional development. A career coach stimulates you to ask yourself that question once again at this point in your life. Also, a career coach can challenge you to approach your environment in a different way to see what new insights you will gain. Or, to discover a completely different environment than you are currently working in. This is what I call: field work.
A career coach can be compared with a mirror. She shares her observations with you. The effect is like looking in a mirror but more dynamic. Her observations are moving, changing, because you also change, evolve and clarify things during the process. These observations are without judgement and will speed up your self-consciousness.
The more you are aware of your talents and discovering new worlds inside and outside, the more you will be able to make decisions that make you happy! This applies not only to your career decisions but also to other life decisions. It is an exciting journey in which you are the captain. The career coach facilitates you by offering a map and inquiring about your destination and how you like to travel.
By talking to a career coach, introspection sharpens and your research on career opportunities will have more focus. You will see that those career questions and dilemmas will appear more simple now than before, because your knowledge has grown. You will find the solutions you were looking for.
