About my experience in dealing with Todd Smith ... after having had a successful career as a healthcare administrator and entrepreneur which enabled me to retire at the age of 52, I decided at the age of 65 that is was time for me to "give back" to society and do something constructive. So, I got a job as a school bus driver for the Eden Prairie, MN school system. I love young kids and felt this opportunity would enable me to help young people grow in maturity. After only a few months on the job, I quickly realized that I was failing miserably in dealing with the kids. As a father of three children and six grandkids, I thought I had all the requisite skills and experience to be a good influence on the kids on my bus. I was confused and almost heartbroken to realize that I could not successfully drive the kids back and forth to school while at the same time helping them mature. In truth, many of the kids on my bus were out of control and doing things that were actually counter productive to their growth in maturity. I thought seriously about going back into retirement. I was very close to quitting one day feeling like a total failure when Todd Smith got permission from management to ride along on my bus and help me learn some better skills for managing the children. The kids were misbehaving on my bus. I needed to earn their respect. My goal was to learn some techniques to better control their behavior. Todd coached me in many techniques including positive reinforcement, caring interactions, and the use of logical consequences. I needed to have better boundaries and not let the kids walk all over me - but to do it in a kind way. Todd was very kind to the kids which made me happy but also very direct in this approach ... giving me concrete instructions and homework. It was like a workshop in good parenting skills. As a result, I was able to keep my job and develop a satisfying relationship with the kids on my bus. Todd is a magnificent teacher. His guidance for me, even at the age of 65, was life changing. I can highly recommend Todd to help you achieve your own goals.

I went to a Chamber Breakfast looking forward to learning things to bring back to my place of business for improving how I get things done but came out with more for my personal life. Betsy gave me the boost I needed to improve things in my life and to change what I need to become happier. I have a passion and have wanted to be able to make a career of it and she said that I can. I started steps to make this happen and am establishing the groundwork to happiness. Betsy has such enthusiasm and is so genuine in her approach to improvement and happiness. I appreciate her and what her words have done for me.

I came to Emily Adams for advice about the choices I needed to make involving my career and future endeavors. She responded very quickly and came to have a conversation with me. She was very attentive and listened carefully to the concerns I brought forward. She gave me wonderful advice and provided resources to alleviate my concerns. With her help I feel assured that everything will work out for me. Within a few days, she was willing to assist with cleaning up both my resume and cover letter, and now I feel completely confident with applying and posting both my resume and cover letter. I feel that with her advice and help, it will help me better both personally and professionally.

When I started coaching with Andy I was burned out on what I felt was a dead end job for me. By the end of coaching I had renewed energy that I could apply to my career, but ultimately ended up shifting gears and landed my dream job. One of the reasons the interview team selected me was because l was "very self aware and comfortable talking about her strengths and and achievements," which wouldn't have been the case if I hadn't spent time with Andy reflecting on my past and what I wanted to accomplish in the future. Coaching really was a game changer for me, and Andybis the absolute best; I can't recommend him highly enough.

I am starting 2015 with a new-found acceptance of who I am, thanks to Julie. With her as my life coach, I discovered my natural strengths, needs and values that I can apply in my daily life. Julie is a great listener, and her questions opened me to more personal growth. She is respectful of my time and willing to reschedule. I recommend Julie and Emerge Coaching and Consulting Services to anyone who wants to grow in their personal life and their career.

About

I am a business, career and life coach, specializing in energizing visioning and strategic planning journeys designed to optimize and obtain individual, team and organizational commitments. What makes what I do stand out is how it's approached. It is approached from a shared prospective. I identify clients' passions and talents and seek opportunities for them to be combined in a way that leverages their energy and capabilities. Examples include the following: 1) I developed and facilitated workshop experiences for clients (e.g. fanatical leadership, personal leadership and goals to action) designed to generate leadership insights that lead to action. 2) I hold one-on-one sessions with clients in various stages of transition, including job change, divorce, graduation from school, etc. 3) I consulted with two entrepreneurs to develop and implement business plans for their new businesses that led to increased productivity, reduced costs and greater demand for their services.

About

CareerSherpas was founded on the idea that where one person can improve their life dramatically, everybody deserves the same chance to succeed. What's with the name? Sherpas are the native mountaineering guides of the Himalayas who have been relied on for successful ascent of the highest peaks for generations. Their daily work as climbing and terrain experts allowed many expeditions to succeed against impressive odds. I took on the moniker CareerSherpas to express what I look to achieve for my clients: Reaching the pinnacle of personal success. My own career has had ups and downs, but I've learned a lot about the trajectories that can be set if you aim high and want to share that success and knowledge with others. What makes CareerSherpas different? CareerSherpas was founded on the idea that where one person can improve their life dramatically, everybody deserves the same chance to succeed. I don't live in an ivory tower; I work in the real world and see every day the trials, tribulations, and enjoyment that work can bring when you're doing what you enjoy. I came to do this because people often struggle with knowing and accepting what they really want to do or even realizing that they aren't doing it. I know what it means to develop and prosper in a professional career with a balanced and busy life, not because I've studied it, but because I live it every day. Who am I? My name is Peter Fitzgerald, and I am an ex-patriot Australian information technology professional with a broad array of experience in all the many facets of IT, but that doesn't really start to explain how I wound up offering to help people with their careers, does it? In a lot of ways, it does! I started out helping friends, family, and colleagues discover opportunities for growth, and in doing so, discovered a knack for connecting people with the things they really wanted to do and finding ways to help them do it. I believe in practicing what I preach, and have consistently been applying the same techniques and approaches to my own career that I use to help others. While my results may not be typical, I have been able to consistently improve my situation over the past seven years and get involved in work that invigorates and engages me. I want to share this success and help you set and achieve goals that make your life better. Contact me, and let me help you find a fulfilling, successful career for you.

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

What is a life coach?

A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

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

How much does a life coach cost?

A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

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.
