Mr. Perez and I met about 5 years ago at a forum to celebrate the youth here in Chicago. We carried on a professional relationship that I truly value. Mr. Perez is a solid communicator both in written and verbal forms, very organized and very task driven. This has proven to be an asset for him in his career. Mr. Perez appears to be overall maturity and show a solid level of integrity. In our conversations, Mr. Perez shows awareness of the need for more dedicated, educated and knowledgeable professionals in the field of education and providing solid public services for communities at large. He understands that working in this field takes much commitment, dedication, hard work and drive.

She has an uncanny ability to get to the heart of the matter which helps you see your own heart more clearly. Anne gently guided me to uncover my passion. Her insights inspired me to set goals for myself and her encouragement propelled me towards fulfilling them.

Just after the first session we both felt it was going to be a good match.Andrew is very easy going and easy to talk to .He also seems to listen very well and pick up on exactly what areas need attention in relationship conflict . We are looking forward to continuing service with him .

I am a Health Coach and was having difficulty with my presentations with my clients - Not in my coaching or my capabilities but with my non-verbal communication. I was lacking confidence in my body language (I can be fairly shy) which I really needed to present myself as a professional for my business. Tamara was phenomenal. She is knowledgeable in all types of non-verbal communications techniques and although I am shy I have gained a skill that will absolutely be beneficial to me in my business. Any time I feel like I am slipping or having complications again I will come back to her every time. I highly recommend The Naked Truth to anyone looking for expertise in this area - She is genuinely friendly, attentive and supremely experienced. Thank you again!

After a second downsizing in three years, Jeff helped me map out a course of action that involved assessing a couple of different business opportunities - as well as - taking a hard, serious look at what I really wanted for my immediate and long-term situation. Jeff's down-to-earth, consultative approach helped me to realize that I already knew many of the important action items I needed to address in determining a path forward - and with his coaching, I began making immediate progress. I highly recommend Jeff Schuster and Acuity Small Business Consulting for anyone who needs to get their business bearings!

Stephen took the time to understand me, my family background and associated stress points before developing a plan to work through the challenges I was struggling with. His approach was a nice balance of listener and strong coach which resulted in a positive outcome for me and my family. Would offer an unconditional recommendation supporting his practice.

"From my very first meeting with Anikka, I knew that I was in for an exceptional experience and she never disappointed. Because of Anikka’s ability to truly tune in to what I was saying and feed it back to me, even when I was talking in circles, I was able to reach deep inside and verbalize thoughts and feelings that I had previously been unable to express. Because of that, I was able to look at my true self, weak and strong, and face my fears and move forward using my strengths. She is truly an amazing coach to work with and I highly recommend her."

Real Life Coaching is about you. Your goals, your problems and your challenges. How you reach those goals and overcome those challenges is where we come in.

At Pikes Peak Coaching & Consulting, I start all of our work with the CliftonStrengths assessment (formerly Clifton StrengthsFinder). CliftonStrengths is based on over 50 years of research on what comes naturally to an individual. It’s a powerful assessment tool that identifies the unique way that you think, get work done, interact with and influence others. While there are several “personality” assessments available online, CliftonStrengths is more of a development tool and provides a much more personalized report for you. Only 1 in 33 million people will have the same top 5 that you have in the same order and the chance of two people with the same top 5 in any order is 1 in 278 thousand. So unlike the majority of the personality assessments, your CliftonStrengths report is distinctly YOU! Just like people, each mountain peak is unique and Pikes Peak has become one of the most iconic mountain tops in the United States. It is not the tallest of the 14er’s in Colorado, but it is the highest summit of the southern Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. It’s distinctive shape can be seen for nearly 80 miles in all directions and is the inspiration for the song America the Beautiful. The Barr Trail leading to the top of Pikes Peak is the longest of any trails leading to the top of the 54 mountains in Colorado that are over 14,000 feet. And rising nearly 8000 feet above the city of Colorado Springs, it has the greatest base to summit elevation gain of any mountain in Colorado. Pikes Peak stands out amongst all the rest, so should you! Over 18 million people have taken the CliftonStrengths assessment to date. But taking the assessment is only the first step, to truly reach your Peak Potential you need a coach. As one of just over 2100 registered Gallup Certified Strengths Coaches in the world, I will help you identify your innate talents and teach you how to get them to work for YOU! As with climbing any mountain, success comes not only at the top, but many times along the way. Through coaching you will discover ways to use your strengths to work through challenges to achieve your goals and how to build better teams and partnerships with others that are productive and mutually supportive. Just like an athletic coach, I will support you in honing your strengths and encourage you on the journey to the top. It is my goal to help everyone identify and use their natural talents and strengths to reach their Peak Potential and let them stand out amongst the crowd!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a career coach?

If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

  • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
  • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
  • Defining your career goals
  • Creating a plan for job searching
  • Improving networking strategies and skills
  • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
  • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
  • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

Why is career counseling important?

Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

  • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
  • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
  • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
  • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
  • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
  • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
  • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

What is a career counselor?

If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.

How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.
