Do we have to meet in-person?
Coaching is not bound by geography. I can work with you in-person, by phone or by web/video conferencing like Skype.
How long does it usually take?
I tailor my coaching to each individual, although there are some common elements that most people find useful.
Developing your Career Balance Sheet typically takes about a month. This varies depending on the complexity of the conversations or the scope of the change you wish to make.
Following this, I am always available for individual sessions to explore specific career questions or challenges, to prepare for interviews, etc.
More structured comprehensive career transition work, which starts with the Career Balance Sheet, often runs two to three months. Beyond this, some clients want regular, though informal, career conversation and counsel.
Do I have to be a certain age for career coaching?
No. Career fulfillment and happiness is relevant at any age. My expertise and process are designed to meet you where you are now and then help you define a path to your next step.
What is the investment for these services?
You’re right in thinking of career coaching as an investment. That’s a realistic way to look at the structure, advice and strategy for your career planning and management of fulfilling and harmonious livelihood.
The major values of my coaching are actionable self-knowledge of what you truly want, and career advice and definitive strategies to go get it.
The tried-and-true starting engagement is the Career Balance Sheet, which shows you where you are today and provides guidance to get you where you want to be tomorrow. It’s the optimal mix of time and effort that both you and I need to make for you to get the maximum benefit for the rest of your career.
The typical investment for developing your Career Balance Sheet is one thousand dollars.
How can I pay?
I accept checks, Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal. An initial retainer is due when we sign the engagement agreement, which will include a schedule of payment for the remainder of the fee.
Do you do corporate and/or group coaching?
Yes. I provide custom options for groups and teams of all sizes. Ask me how I can help you.
Do you provide outplacement services?
Yes. I provide planning, management, and transition support services to organizations managing staffing changes.
