Personal career coaching can help you in various ways and I’m going to go over some things right now that you can do to help you advance your career in record time. Some of the things that you need to know is that most employees don’t really have clearly defined goals for what position they would like to move up to. If you simply write down what it is that you want and what position you want and by when, you will increase your chances of getting promoted over others easily by over 50%. You should note that most people who are not happy at work are not happy because they have no ambition. I am proud of you because you have ambition and you have proved it to me by reading this article!
My personal career coaching is for those who really want to make a change in their lives. Those who look around and see that there are companies that make people wait years and years for advancement and then offer it to some new kid out of college. There is a reason why you have not been promoted yet. One of the reasons is that you simply have not created a plan to get where you want. The hard truth is that there are just some positions that you will never be able to get no matter how much planning you do. You need to learn quickly how to weed these out and focus on the ones that you can do. Forget about being realistic because of the great example from the Wright brothers. Flying in their day was not realistic but they did it and now it’s an everyday occurrence!
Personal career coaching is for those who understand that you can leverage off of other people’s mistakes to advance your career without having to try to figure out everything on your own. How nice would it be to be able to call someone who has done what you are trying to do who will answer any question that you have so you can avoid unnecessary pain? I know how hard it is to figure out how to get to the top because there are so many people clawing and fighting for what you want. If the position that you have your eye on is any good, you can bet that there are many others who are also gunning for this position and you’ve got some competition on your hands. Don’t look at the other competitors and rule yourself out because you think they are more qualified or you think the boss likes them more, no instead look at yourself and how you can get where you want to go. Think about it, there is always someone more qualified, thank God this is not what is necessary to get raises!
Another way that you can benefit from personal career coaching is the fact that you now have someone Else’s experience working for you. Make sure that if you do decide to work with a career coach, that this person has experience doing what it is you want to do. I’d make sure that they are easily reachable and that there is a way to be able to ask them questions and get them answered in a timely manner. People that hire career coaches usually beat out others for the job, it’s just that simple. I’ve prepared some cutting edge techniques to advance your career below, enjoy!
