Why a Career Coach?
People find their way to careers all the time. Why get professional help?
There used to be a time when a person would find or fall into a career and stay with it for life. Not anymore. Many are being displaced involuntarily, while others are no longer willing to do work they find tedious or unbearable.
In addition, there's a growing drive to self-actualize, to have work that expresses our unique set of gifts, talents and passions. We don't want to spend 40 or more hours a week doing something that's deadening to our spirit. Many people fall into job after job, only to wake up 20 years later in a place they never intended to be.
The world of work is more complicated than it used to be. We have more options and choices, which make it more exciting . . . and more confusing. If you've been laid off, your outplacement package may not support you in looking beyond your current career. If you're approaching retirement, you may feel stuck about how to spend your time once you leave your job.
A Career Coach can help you to discover and sort through your options and come up with a career choice that will be fulfilling for you. The synergy of working in partnership with a coach can help you uncover buried passions and discover new ones, and then shape them into a career or business.
The career process I work with – the Life Purpose Process© – is a whole-person approach that honors your uniqueness. Rather than taking computerized assessment tests, I'll take you through a self-exploration process using worksheets and discussion questions. You'll learn more about yourself and discover things that might never come up on standardized tests, and you'll learn skills that will help you guide your own career path over the coming decades, as you grow and change.
But It's Expensive!
Yes, it may seem that way. But what is it costing you to not do it?
Career Coaching is an investment in your future. Many people feel they should be able to figure out their own career path, but often your own limited thinking, along with doubts and fears that we all have, gets in your way. By working with a trained coach, the process moves more quickly and opens up new possibilities that you might not think of yourself.
So, whether you want to explore new career options by choice or necessity, make a wise investment in yourself and your future by exploring Career Coaching!

"I’m reminded as the five-year anniversary of 9/11 approaches of what a dramatic impact you have had on my life. Together, we set some goals about my possibly returning to school to get a graduate degree in psychology. The key to getting me out of the “research it until it’s dead” mode was setting a deadline – 3 months. I checked out schools and did informational interviews and landed in exactly the perfect place. I started an M.A. in Counseling Psychology on July 1, 2002. Two years later, I started the doctorate, and now I’m Dr. Kubacky! I’ve just launched a private practice, and have about one-third of the hours I need towards licensure as a clinical psychologist. I am really appreciative of your generosity with your time, and wanted you to know that it was deeply meaningful." ~~ Gretchen Kubacky, Psy.D.
"When I first went to Sharon Good, I was very unsure if Life and Career Coaching would really help. But I thought I should try it out a for few sessions because … hey … I couldn't figure out what I wanted for a profession. Sharon really helped me to realize that I could take myself in eleven different career paths and that it was okay to have a different profession at different stages in life. Now, for the first time in four years, I found a career that is best for me, and I am excited to start working toward this goal." ~~ Elizabeth D.
"I just wanted to let you know that I was offered the position at my workplace! I'm pretty excited about it and happy to have things solidified. I'm so glad we talked about my work environment because when [my boss] asked me what I'd be interested in doing, I was prepared and able to articulate what I was looking for in a position. And I got just what I asked for!" ~~ Lisa F.
"Working with Sharon, I gained a better perspective of what is truly important to me. She helped me to weed out the 'shoulds' from the things I am truly passionate about. Within a few short sessions, Sharon helped me to narrow my career focus to just a couple of very exciting options to explore. This clarity enabled me to focus and truly commit to a few manageable goals. Sharon's energy is very calming and supportive – I highly recommend her for anyone trying to streamline their options and choose the personal/professional path that is right for them." ~~ Kami Rodgers
"Our conversation helped inspire me to go out on a limb,
step beyond my fears and explore some career options. I continue
to grow in this area, and I'm working toward pursuing my dreams.
"Doing the explorative work can be difficult, but Sharon makes the process a lot easier. She really helped by being a positive support person who asked pertinent questions, listened and gave great suggestions. Having scheduled times to speak helped my motivation, plus Sharon is a very compassionate person and gave me a positive perspective." ~~ Michelle Hughes
