If you're between 18 and 55, chances are you've been on or currently are on an endless quest toward professional growth. Maybe you want a better boss, better hours, more pay, more exciting or more meaningful work.
From the minute we finish high school, one question drones in the back of our minds: What am I doing with my life? I don't care if you're a lawyer, a doctor, an accountant or a grocery store clerk. A great title and a great pay doesn't equate to job satisfaction.
So where are you now? Are you just starting out? Are you in a career and ready for change? While you're current situation may be different from the next, the process is relatively similar. Keep reading to find out more.
WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP IN MY CAREER?
How happy are you with your current job? Are you paid enough? Challenged enough? Learning and growing enough? Do you like the people you work with and for? These questions may be pointing to some pain points for you and if so, it may be time to make some decisions that can benefit your well-being and professional development.

WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH MY LIFE?
The Paradox of Choice states that the more options we have, the less likely we are to be satisfied with our choice. Career path selection is the perfect example of this phenomenon. It's like going to a restaurant and being offered a menu with a million different items on it. The result? Analysis paralysis and an unhappy customer. So how do we decide which career path to choose?
Career coaching helps reduce and eliminate the clutter by focusing on and identifying the criteria that are most important to you. Your talents, passions, ideals and core values are front and center. Let a coach help guide you to living a life driven by passion and purpose.
What a question! No pressure right? Well, it's a little more simple than it appears. You see, we're all born with a set of natural abilities as well as things that turn us on and finally, things we think are more important than others. In short, Talents, Passions, Ideals and Values. Properly exploring and identifying these elements is the difference between working a job you don't like versus finding your vocation and living a life where work is synonymous with satisfaction and self-actualization. Which do you prefer?
Once you know who and why you are who you are, it's time to use this information to filter out the noise. Eliminating anything and everything that doesn't align with your identity. This phase is about assessing all of your options and checking-in to see how they resonate with your clearly defined identity. This step should reduce your choices down to a manageable shortlist. Something you can easily grasp and work with. Knowing What you want is half of the process. The other half is knowing Why.
Those who know what they want and why they want it usually end up getting it. The missing ingredient is a concrete, achievable action plan backed by a winning team. This is where your steps are clearly laid out in front of you and all you need to do is to execute. You may want to go back to school, rework a professional resume, look and play the part and go for it. Great wins require strategy and bold action. Coaching provides you with the clarity, strategy and support you need to take the leap.
