Why would anyone seek career coaching? Currently, in the UK, we are seeing a raft of large and small organisations making large numbers of employees redundant. Organisations are closing down or re-aligning to a changed market. Organisations are issuing redundancy notices on a daily basis to employees across the UK. A career change is on the cards for many employees in the UK at the moment.
At Seek First Ltd we experience directly the impact of employees finding themselves in a consultation of redundancy. The common expression we hear, during our career coaching sessions, is one of feeling lost and scared. The career goals of our clients have been suddenly and abruptly disrupted. The long term future may well look bleak. Many organisations will appoint a team of career advisors to give career coaching to those facing possible redundancy or redeployment. Not all organisations, sadly, are that enlightened!
Employees can often be left to fend for themselves during a time that can easily lead to work-related depression. Career coaching explores your current circumstances and identifies the most important values and skills you possess. Combining this with behavioural profiling we devise a path towards a career change. Whether this is a career change in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s or 60s. A career coach will also work with you to look at your wider life experiences and relationships. Doing this helps to match you to a career to give you that sense of purpose and achievement once again.
Naturally, you could go off on your own and pursue a job search for what you consider your ideal career. You might simply want to return to work as soon as possible. For many people this is their comfort zone, any job will do!
