What is the value of using a Career Coach and how does it differ from an Executive Coach?
A Career Coach helps individuals in pursuing a job search and/or career transition. An Executive Coach provides executives with leadership and executive skills development as well as guidance in terms of how to perform their current roles better. The objective of an Executive Coach is typically to make an executive more effective where they are currently employed while the objective for a Career Coach is to better enable an executive to find a targeted new position and/or career change.INFORMED CAREERSprovides Executive Career Coaching that is career coaching only for Executives.
How isINFORMED CAREERSdifferent from other career coaching services?
INFORMED CAREERSonly works with Executives and specializes in providing support designed and customized to best meet their needs. We deploy a proven and disciplined process for enabling them to find new positions in a more efficient and effective basis. Our Coaches are all practical and experienced in deploying a process and the support needed for Executives to implement their search process. Our experience as Executive Search Consultants provides an in depth knowledge of what hiring managers desire and how to work with their recruiting teams as well. We also find that Executives generally prefer our one on one coaching over group sessions to discuss their personal search objectives and strategies. Participating in networking groups is encouraged, but we generally recommend pursuing industry and professional networking events rather than groups of job seekers for our Executive clientele. We also find that Executives generally prefer telephone coaching sessions to minimize the time requirements vs. in person meetings. However, we can schedule several in person meetings with Executives if desired, especially during the Job Search Campaign process.
Integrity drives our focus is on delivering quality results for each Executive based upon their specific needs and objectives. If we do not feel we can meet an Executive’s needs, we will not work with them and refer them to others who may be a better fit for them. We also provide a money back guarantee for all services that were not delivered or conducted for a client.
How do I know I will get results from INFORMED CAREERSservices?
Executives that use Coaches get faster and better results than those not using Coaches according to published studies. The search process we deploy has been utilized successfully for over 25 years with a track record of proven success in both strong and difficult markets such as what we face today. The actual results an Executive will achieve depend largely on their own effort as well as the process and coaching support they receive. However, an Executive is much more likely to successful in a search if a disciplined and proven process is being utilized along with monitoring of efforts and ongoing support to maintain focus and discipline.
