In today’s coaching environment, professional coaching frequently involves career coaching. Often coaching engagements, especially in the business or executive arena, include helping clients figure out what to do with their careers, how to advance in a company, and how to conduct a job search. Beyond basic coaching skills, do you have the additional tools and expertise to be exceptional in this specialized area or offer this as an additional service to expand your revenue and client base?
Career coaching is a lucrative business and relatively insulated from economic cycles. Most “career coaching” is not “pure coaching”— it involves a blending of “knowing” (expertise, training) and “not knowing” (coaching). Career Coaches move in and out of these roles to meet their clients’ needs. They are at various times consultants, trainers, mentors, or coaches.
In partnership with Yellow Brick Path, Coach Academy has developed a comprehensive self-study workbook designed to support career management coaches and other professionals. It emphasizes the importance of coaching—questioning, challenging, and letting the client lead throughout career management and job search engagements. Whether you are new to career coaching, already conduct career coaching, or want to add it as a specialty to your current business, this workbook is invaluable.
