Self-reflection can be a difficult task. Often, we don’t see ourselves the way others see us and that can be positive or negative. I often find clients have amassed amazing career achievements throughout their climb up the executive ladder but they undersell those accomplishments in their resume, social media profiles, networking opportunities, and job interviews. Seeking the guidance and support of a trained coach will help you to see yourself with clarity and confidence, and be able to market your career strengths to the right people using the right strategies to deliver results.
“I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.” ― Bob Nardelli, former CEO, Home Depot
“Executive coaches are not for the meek. They’re for people who value unambiguous feedback. All coaches have one thing in common, it’s that they are ruthlessly results―oriented.” ― Fast Company
“In a recent study, training alone improved leadership skills by 22%. When combined with Executive Coaching, improvement jumps to 77%.” ― Fortune
A professional coach will listen, collaborate, support and assist you to identify and gain clarity on your goals, achieve your dreams, fulfill your aspirations and enhance your power to succeed. Elite Resumes offers expertise in Career Coaching, Career Transition Coaching, Personal Branding, Executive Coaching, Social Media Coaching, and Interview Coaching.
Career Coaching is a methodology available to help people achieve job and career satisfaction. Compared to career counselling, coaching is more results oriented, less structured and guided more by the clients’ agenda. While similar to consulting, which focuses on solving problems through providing the right answers, coaching focuses on asking the right questions. Unlike therapy, which deals with the past to solve current issues, coaching begins in the present and focuses on moving clients forward to get more of what they want in the future. Similar to Career Coaching, Career Transition Coaching helps executives expedite their job search and return to meaningful employment at the senior level after being downsized or terminated. Alternatively, a transition may mean a change in direction requiring the support of a Certified Job and Career Transition Coach.
