Below is a guideline on what the coaching program would look like to set your expectations and provide clarity. This is not carved in stone, the relationship I have with each client is unique and tailor made. We design our sessions together where mostly the client sets the outcome of each session and is committed and accountable to deliver the results.
Career Identity Program
Are you a millennial student about to choose your career path? Or a young professional who has stepped into the corporate world, yet still looking for ‘the right job’? When you are stuck in a job that doesn’t quite fit, you know it, even if you don’t know why. If you are looking for clarity and direction on the right career, this is the place that will help you carve out a career you’d be proud of.
Define a clear and compelling vision of what you want
First things first, you will help yourself get absolute clarity on your vision and outcome. We will discuss what results you expect from career coaching and how would success look like for you. Leveraging NLP tools, we will nail down your vision with precision and then help you break down that long-term goal into, smaller achievable tasks. Painting this well-defined picture would help pave the end in mind and be the starting point of all the great work we will do together.
Get clarity on who you are at your core
When you know your own identity, there is a high likelihood that you will also be clear on your career identity. They are deeply interwoven. You will plunge deep into your core and experience an inner shift by becoming more self-aware on your purpose, values, beliefs, strengths and opportunities. For you to find a job that is most meaningful and fulfilling to you, we will find a sweet spot that marries your purpose in life, values and beliefs with your strengths and skill set.
Overcome your fears and limiting beliefs to get into the success mindset
Nothing succeeds like success. For you to truly embrace this mindset, you need to clear out the fears, inhibitions and preconceived notions that are holding you back. You are not the only one, we all have them. The ones who succeed are the ones who accept their vulnerabilities, because only when you do, you can choose which ones are really limiting that you need to turn around in your favor. As Brene Brown says, vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.
Discover the career options that line up with who you are
After taking an inward dive into your core, we will now jump out into the external world and explore the career options that are the best fit for you. There is never one magic answer. We will start by looking into a range of possibilities that align with who you are and make use of your strengths in the best way possible. You will narrow down the choices and ultimately choose your career, with your new found awareness, motivation and brimming confidence.
Market yourself by defining your own unique, personal brand
Finally, we will work on the most interesting and fun part of the process – defining your unique and authentic personal brand. Do you often find yourself stuttering and stammering when someone catches you off guard and asks ‘tell me about yourself’? It is extremely critical that you package your strengths and skills in the most compelling way that communicates your journey, your story. Leveraging my brand management and marketing experience, I will ask powerful questions for you to craft your brand story strategically, and explore how it will come to life. Concretely, you will create the following tangible tools:
– An effective Elevator pitch that always hits a home run during interviews and networking events
– A super stunning and polished Resume/Cover letter
– The art of influencing and negotiating the right package
