Career Coaching: Exploring Options
Whether you are working in a great job or just starting out, your future earnings depend on networking, continuous learning, leadership, and discerning fads from trends in your industry. This coaching session provides you with a framework for exploring options and taking specific actions in order to keep a razor-sharp competitive edge.
Career Coaching: Networking Skills
People hire, promote, and recommend individuals that they like, know, and trust. Networking happens when you are a deep listener, someone who is genuine and helpful to others. Another aspect of networking is aspirational. It is targeting the people you want to meet, but do not yet know. Our coaching work focuses on your immediate and aspirational networking strategy.
