In the beginning, I was going to tell Coach Katherine no for coaching, because I felt like I didn't need it, & I was not comfortable working with others. I'm so glad she helped to turn my no into a yes, and now I am getting results that I did not get before. A major lesson she taught me is to not to apologize to others for my journey, because every part of my journey is vital to my success. I have gained more confidence in myself, and have opened my eyes to so many possibilities since being coached by Coach Katherine. She helped me to become more comfortable with ME personally, which helped in every area of my life. I really see that, "How I do one thing is how I do everything!" Now, I'm surprising myself with all that is happening! Thanks Coach K!

My coaching partnership with Sharma can really only be described as transformational. In working with her over the past couple months, I feel that I've reached a turning point in my own leadership journey. My goal at the start of our partnership was to maximize the impact I had on my team, but throughout this experience I've been able to accomplish and learn much more. Before working with her, I was letting self-doubt and other rooted beliefs hold me back from my own power and potential. Sharma's M.A.D.E. to Lead model and her supportive, incisive guidance and questioning pushed me to do that necessary self-work to uncover what held me back, make tweaks to the way I thought and operated, and ultimately create new empowering beliefs that have allowed me to step into my leadership. Even my manager, just yesterday in a professional development conversation, commented on my growth in leadership, communication, confidence, and proactive action in the past couple months. I'm sad to be coming to the conclusion of our partnership, but I'm excited to continue the work. Thank you, Sharma!

      Shannon is the ultimate professional. As a novice, I was pretty nervous at first. However, by the end of my first course with Shannon, I had the confidence and mind-set to to be prepared for whatever comes. I have done two separate training courses in the last six months and am planning on a third. Just be warned--Shannon's so good that is addictive. You're going to want to train with him over and over again. Great stuff!

        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.
