Many encourage people to step out of their comfort zone. I rather believe that people should make unknown situations more pleasant and interesting by expanding the boundaries of their present world.
It is indeed a matter of point of view: a career coach helps you find different perspectives on your work life that allow you to transform your initial conundrum into new inspiring beginnings, choose concrete actions amidst an overwhelming range of possibilities, and let your initial fear of the unknown turn into curiosity about what you will soon discover.
My coaching style has developed through the interaction between professional academic education and working in predominantly creative environments.
As a coach, I can be more supportive of those who see work as self-fulfilment and a strong part of their personal identity than just a way of earning a living.
My personal career experience also helps me to be a more sensitive supporter to people who are moving towards a career change, no matter whether it is deliberately planned or due to external factors and often unexpected.
