Before embarking on a career change, you need to think carefully so as not to make unfortunate decisions. Career coaching is a support service that can help you in this reflection. By having a few meetings with a professional coach, you will be able to make the decisions corresponding to your professional aspirations, withoutprecipitation.

The number of meetings and their regularity play a decisive role in your coaching. This must be a real partnership between you and your coach, a relationship that will allow you to express yourself in an atmosphere of trust, openness and transparency.
The coach helps you identify the right targets, set better goals, and work effectively to achieve them. It helps you clarify what you really want. He accompanies you, supports you and guides you towards achieving what is really important to you.
To achieve this, certain steps can be taken before the meeting.
Getting to know each other

To do so, you must identify your:
NeedsExpectationsValuesAspirationsCareer GoalsDominant Motivations
What is most important to you at work? The relationships you have with colleagues, the title you are given, authenticity, personal development, freedom and autonomy?
Take the time to list and answer these questions. You might be surprised at the result
Once the main motivations have been established, take an inventory of your skills.
The ones you have, but would like to develop further;The ones you don't have, but want to get;The ones you prefer to use;The ones you don't have and don't have of interest to you.
This step will further clarify the focus of your coaching. The coach will suggest a structure to identify your profile. You will be the only one to make decisions, but the goal being to provide you with the best possible framework to make them, he will also be there to guide you as needed.

Take the right direction
You've done a lot of the work already. Now it remains to identify what job you are looking for. Mr. Ouellet believes that it is normal, at this time, to be confronted with certain contradictions. If you want both a luxurious lifestyle and balance work and family, you will have to make choices. Will you be ready to give up one oranother of your goals, in favor of another more important to you? “The important thing is to stay as consistent as possible with your goals, in order to make an informed choice,” he adds.
To pursue your work, you will have to define your ideal job and the organization you would like to work for, in which field, what level of responsibility, what style of management and more. You will have to refer to what you identified previously at the motivational profile stage and try to find what best suits your new objectives. This is how you will gradually rise to the challenges ahead!
For the rest, refer to a professional coach who will be able to support you in this important step of career reorientation.
