Why should people get WorkWiser Executive Coaching?
Getting WorkWiser Coaching to address your professional and career aspirations would be analogous to a person deciding to see a medical doctor to proactively improve their health or a clinical psychologist to sort through some of their emotions, past experiences, etc. Many people are willing to take these other aspects of our health and well-being seriously and we at Minerva believe that professional should similarly take their own career and professional development just as seriously. Consider the possibilities of working with an executive coach to be able to land that new job or promotion at work. Your career trajectory (promotability, monetary compensation, etc.) would forever be impacted and a small investment in a coaching relationship would have enormous pay-offs for that professional.
What type of client would want your WorkWiser Career Coaching?
Someone who is genuinely interested and committed to developing themselves for their career; someone who is open to self-discovery; someone who wants objective feedback about their performance and their career path; someone who wants the support and guidance and research input on how best to improve, further develop, reach their goals, etc.
Why you believe WorkWiser Coaching works?
I know it works because our approach is based on psychological evidence that has been proven by research. Our recommendations are based on this sound and valid research evidence and most importantly, I know it works because I see it work every day with my own clients.
Why do you think coaching fails for some? How could it fail for you?
I think it fails when folks aren't fully committed to making changes. And I know it's hard to make change. But like anything that is worth it, a successful coaching relationship requires hard work, a willingness to engage consistently, and a strong commitment so that these changes become habitual and their benefits are fully realized.
