With career coaching, you will get resources, support, and ideas to help you use your education, training, and skills to find your dream job.
What To Expect
Our coaching isn’t overly prescriptive or cookie-cutter. We work with each individual to understand their unique circumstances and provide a tailored coaching experience that gets results.
Social sector expertise
No one likes advice from the cheap seats. Collectively we have decades of experience in the social sector. We are particularly experienced in coaching mission-driven leaders.
We will meet you where you are at. Our support ranges from identifying core values and creating purpose statements to updating resumes and LinkedIn profiles and advising on real-time job search strategies.

Who can benefit from career coaching?
Are you thinking about switching jobs? Feeling stuck in your career? Currently in-between jobs? Career coaching is for you.
You give your car an oil change every 3,000 miles to keep up a maintenance schedule and get expert mechanic advice. But what do you do for your career? When it comes to your professional life, a proactive approach is best. Having a trusted adviser, such as a career coach, is a secret weapon that executives use across the globe, but you don’t have to be a member of the C-suite to take advantage of this opportunity.
Is it the same as counseling or therapy?
Coaching is NOT COUNSELING or THERAPY. Coaches are careful to maintain a clear distinction between their coaching and therapy. Coaches focus with their client on life and work issues from the perspective of “where are you now” and “where do you want to go.” Therapists, on the other hand, delve into clinical analysis, generally from a historical point of view, and focus on diagnosis and treatment. Many therapists may use some coaching techniques and vernacular, but coaches may not cross the line into therapy — a licensed profession. If a coach observes the appearance of a mental health issue, he or she will be equipped with referrals to an appropriate psychotherapist or mental health agency.
