Navigating the twists and turns of a career path can often feel like a solitary journey, especially in tech. However, it doesn't have to be. If you've found yourself pondering questions like "What is coaching?" or "Why should I try it?", you're not alone, and more importantly, you're in the right place. In this blog, I’ll guide you through the unique approach I offer at Careersy Coaching and how it can propel your career forward. Whether you're navigating the tech job market, aiming for your next big role, or enhancing your professional presence, you're about to embark on a transformative journey.

What is Career Coaching? I hear you ask. 

Career coaching, at its core, is a partnership designed to empower professionals in their career journey. It's more than just guidance; it's a collaborative process that supports behavior change, emotional well-being, and helps you achieve specific professional goals. Whether you're eyeing a promotion, transitioning to a new field, or simply aiming to enhance your day-to-day performance, a career coach acts as a catalyst for your growth. They have your best interest in mind.
This personalized approach to professional development can be transformative. It's not just about answering "What should I do?", but rather exploring "What can I become?" Through career coaching, you can uncover new perspectives, identify strengths and areas for improvement, and develop strategies to overcome obstacles. Ultimately, it’s about unlocking your potential and guiding you towards a fulfilling career path.

The Careersy Coaching process explained

Understanding the coaching process is key to setting the right expectations and getting the most out of each session. Here's a typical flow of how my coaching sessions would be conducted:
  1. Defining the goal: Each session starts with identifying a specific, predefined goal. What do you want to achieve? This clarity sets the direction for our work together.
  2. Exploring significance: Why is this goal important to you? Understanding the 'why' brings depth to our sessions, ensuring that the outcomes align with your core values and long-term objectives.
  3. Identifying obstacles: What's standing in your way? We'll uncover the barriers, whether they are external challenges or internal limiting beliefs, and work on strategies to overcome them.
  4. Generating insights: Through our discussions, you'll gain new perspectives about your career or the specific goal you're targeting. These insights are often the catalyst for meaningful change and backed by hands-on recruitment experience. 
  5. Building an accountability plan: We'll develop a plan to keep you on track. This includes actionable steps and regular check-ins to ensure progress and adjust as needed.
  6. Structured and private support: Throughout our engagement, you can count on receiving structured support tailored to your needs. This support is anchored in my experience as a tech recruiter and coach, providing you with the insights and strategies to accelerate your career growth.

Each coaching session is a step forward in your journey, designed to be focused, productive, and transformative.
