Some coaches charge more for curriculum reviews, while others include it in the total price. Understand exactly what you get for the cost. For more strategic questions about career changes, the professional training process takes a little longer. The way I see it, it took a while to create the professional dilemma, and it usually takes a while to resolve it.
It can vary from person to person; some people are good at researching for themselves, establishing contacts and making decisions, and others need much more support. So you've decided to get a little career guidance. You have your goals and you're ready to start. How many sessions will you need? For customers who are open and ready to explore these types of deeper development opportunities, we recommend starting with a block of six sessions, with the possibility of expanding them by additional sessions as needed.

As for working with a coach, you'll receive personalized attention from a professional expert who will use impactful questions to better understand your professional goals and work to achieve them. Expect a combination of guiding questions, associations of ideas, and action steps to help you with what comes next. If a cancellation request is received before the first call, you will be refunded the full amount. If a cancellation request is submitted when a package is partially completed, we will issue a refund only for sessions that haven't started (pre-training evaluation is the starting point).
Individual sessions will not be reimbursed after the first call. The packages include the “Ultimate Job Search Kit”, the Stuck in a Career Rut package and the “New Manager Program”. Most career-oriented clients complete their work with me in 2 to 4 weeks. How much time is there between career counseling sessions?.
In addition to the coach's experience, some services offer you more time or interactions with your coach as your level increases. As a career counselor who has worked with many people, I have discovered that recording is a resource that you will use and benefit from for many years to come. In my coaching work, I know each client as a completely unique person and recommend work and career ideas that are perfectly suited to their needs. Each client receives a list of very specific ideas from alternative jobs and careers that I think could be a combination for them, and specific research strategies to investigate those ideas and be able to choose the best career direction for them.
The sessions include quantitative and qualitative evaluations of your values, personality, interests, strengths and preferred skills, such as Myers Briggs, Strong Interest Inventory, DISC and Skill Scan, attention to your personal professional history and emotional considerations, resources for exploring options, tools for making decisions, help in charting a course and a schedule for achieving the chosen goal. In addition, I have an encyclopedic knowledge of jobs and careers, as well as a patented technological platform, which allows me to quickly identify alternative work and professional options. Some people, especially people with high incomes, accept an initial wage cut so that they can transition to a new job and career that are more satisfying in other important ways. When working with clients, I always try to identify work and professional options that take advantage of their skills, knowledge and experience so that they can start with the highest possible salary.
Some clients want to quickly discover alternative work and career options, and will schedule their two career counseling sessions in one week. For example, a career book for accountants who want to make a career change could recommend 20 specific options for accountants. Coaching will include best practices in standard and behavioral interviews, and in those challenging panel interviews. In almost every case, your coach will be able to help you find a solution, as long as you contact him.
