Exploring Career Change

Exploring Career Change has all of the same offerings found in the Job Search Coaching Package PLUS we include coaching around the question of “what do I want to do?”. Through a combination of talent assessment analysis and powerful discovery questioning techniques, we identify and narrow good career options to a smaller list of high-potential options. For those with a clear and confident career direction already established, we may put more of our coaching focus on action planning and removing barriers. For those who feel they have “no clear options or career direction”, we replace it with high-potential options and then help you with the follow-through to pursue the best choice for you.
