What is Career Coaching?

First off, career coaching is not just about getting a better job or promotion. It’s about the long-term, even lifelong, journey of discovering one’s unique strengths and offering it to the world. From the raw ingredients of your passion and strengths, the coach guides you to build and promote your personal brand to help you stand out in a crowd. Hiring managers see more than a hundred resumes for every job posting. Your unique brand will help you get noticed.

Project Management Coaching

There is a gap between project management training and the application of acquired skills to deliver projects. The project manager already knows the best practices and what needs to be done. The challenge is how to apply that knowledge within organizations that have cultural norms, leadership styles and decision-making patterns that are not conducive to project management best practices. The flip side of this challenge is an opportunity. What if you can deliver successful projects and at the same time introduce project management best practices into a company? That will accelerate your career advancement and catapult you into leadership. An experienced coach can help you on this journey, so it takes less time and you avoid mistakes and missteps along the way.
