Coaching Objectives

Career coaching is individually tailored to your current situation or goals and includes the following topics:

Professional Assessment

Usually people face no problems in defining what they don’t want and are not able to do. However, coaching aims to find out your real potential and strengths. Based on a professional assessment, you learn more about your own unique personality. The following questions may help:

  • Who am I? – in terms of skills, values, preferences, dreams
  • What are my abilities? – in terms of competences, previous achievements, special strengths

Occupational New Orientation

Thanks to the outcome from the professional assessment, you are aware of your long-term perspectives. You will be able to present yourself in an authentic and confident way to future conversation partners. The next step is focused on defining your new personal career path and which criteria are important for the occupational new orientation:

  • What do I really want in my life? What is my vision, what are my goals?
  • Am I doing a job to make a living or am I living my vocation?
  • Do I experience positive feelings at work, such as flow or success?
