How to find the right career coach for you

By April 20, 2016September 12th, 2022No Comments

I came across this article on Harvard Business Review that gives some tips on how to identify the best career coach for you.  This article suggests that technology has allowed coaching to be done via Skype (and other similar platforms).  I am a little old-fashioned and believe that at some point an in-person meeting is essential. As a qualified behavioural scientist, I don’t believe you can truly experience someone’s behaviour only, online.  This is important as most of my clients at some point recognise that their approach (and behaviour) is what is holding them back.  Seeing it one-on-one I believe is the best way to help someone move towards their desired behaviour and professional approach. However, what I do agree with is some coaching can be delivered remotely, and can also be a more efficient use of people’s time.  No travel, parking, etc and done from the comfort of one’s home. This article does give some other great ideas on what one should consider when looking for a career coach. I hope the article is of value.   Kindly, Margie.  Finding the right Career Coach
