Recently, I asked my client for five words that best described him. He thought for a while and started sharing some adjectives. When he stated the word: coachable, we chatted about its value and significance in life, work and even in career transition. As a job seeker, have you deemed yourself as someone who is coachable?
Creating change that leads you to achieve goals with greater clarity, purpose, confidence and efficiency.
Opening your mind to possibilities and opportunities through learning from someone with more subject matter mastery than you presently possess.
Accepting and taking action steps to bring about the changes you desire, be it job search or some other aspect of your professional / personal life.
Commitment to getting out of your own way and stepping out of your comfort zone to give learning a chance.
Humbleness and humility in realizing that you could benefit from the guidance, help and support of another human being. These four words “I need your help” can lead to game-changing outcomes in your quest for new employment.
Awareness and appreciation for persons who have subject matter expertise in a specific area that could add value to your career transition (and/or other life goals).
Believing that coaching could be of benefit, buying into the coaching process and being a willing participant.
Letting go of the need to control everything. What are you willing to “give up” in order to “get”?
Engaging fully in the educational process with a sustained energy to do whatever it takes to help you achieve your desired goals and fulfill your expectations with the greatest amount of ease and efficiency.
What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook. ~ Henry David Thoreau
