Career coaching

coffee news job ads career coaching Bethany Wallace

When I started my business in 2016, I offered only career coaching. Here’s why. With years of career services experience, and as a former content manager for College Recruiter, I know how to help earnest job seekers find great jobs. I am passionate about helping professionals pursue career fulfillment. I understand higher education, recruiting, employment, and talent acquisition, and I maintain relationships with colleagues in these industries.

As a professional writer, I can whip out amazing resumes and cover letters. As a communications consultant and former communications instructor and English faculty member, I coach clients as they improve speaking, listening, writing, and other soft skills.

I easily, quickly, and creatively solve simple career-related problems for clients. But what I really love doing for my clients–and what I’m best at–is helping them find career fulfillment.

Executive coaching:

man-iand-woman-doing-a-handshake-3874034Many small business owners, company managers, and nonprofit leaders truly struggle with fulfilling their mission but cannot pinpoint the reasons why or have difficulty finding solutions to the obstacles keeping them from fulfilling their missions.

I help business owners and leaders implement genuine workplace solutions. Some leaders and owners need help with strategic planning. Others need a sounding board. Often, managers play peacemaker between two hotheaded employees and need help resolving conflict.

Whatever your problems, the ultimate goal is to get you where you want to be–and need to be–in terms of two things: career fulfillment and mission alignment.

Coaching features multiple sessions, assignments, and ample feedback. I do not provide  canned coaching packages using content purchased online created by other people. ALL COACHING PACKAGES ARE TAILORED FOR YOU designed to meet your specific needs. A coaching plan involves months’ worth of interaction and improvement.

Why?

Because positive changes–changes that stand the test of time–take time.

  • communication
  • collaboration
  • conflict prevention & resolution
  • organizational mission and branding solutions
  • mentorship
  • improving workplace environment (employee recognition, morale, and attitude)
  • leadership
