Coaching–Process, Timing, and Fees

I work one-on-one with my clients, almost always over the phone in 1-hour sessions. Before we start, we will establish the best plan and process for coaching. Options are:

– Customized coaching plan: The most common approach to career fulfillment coaching is for us to work together to identify your goals and map out a direction for our sessions. Because each person’s circumstances and needs are unique, we establish a process that will work best for you and help you achieve the results you seek.

– Career Reconnaissance. With a combination of subjective and objective assessments, we explore your strengths, interests, and values, as well as your current circumstances and constraints, and identify a set of career options that you can research further. Over the course of 4-5 sessions, you gain additional insights and identify key ideas to help you move forward.

– Interview Strategy. Over 2-4 sessions, we review successful strategies for approaching the interview, identify challenging interview questions (and how to answer them), and practice your skills with mock interviewing.

– “Spot” coaching: A one-time session can address a unique question, issue, or need in your career search or transition.

I wish I could say exactly how long it takes to get from where you are now to where you want to go. Understandably, each unique situation is affected by a variety of factors, such as the local labor market, the clarity of your direction, the magnitude of the change you want to make, and how much time you can devote to the process. No matter what, I am committed to helping you achieve your goals as quickly as possible. I offer an hourly fee for brief coaching work or a package (discounted) fee for multiple sessions.

I welcome the opportunity to review the coaching services I offer and explore which would be most appropriate and helpful for you.
