When people seek to engage in career coaching – whether voluntarily or involuntarily, they are engaging in a process of redefining their identity and then matching that identity to a career that fits. Joyce Richman and Associates, Ltd. serves as a trail guide on this career journey. In general, career counseling includes three integrated components:
- Using instruments and assessments to identify personality characteristics and possible career direction.
- Interpretation of the results of the instruments and discussion of professional or occupational options.
- Goal setting and supportive guidance to achieve the goals set.
Throughout the career coaching process, a philosophy of life-long learning and self-development is employed with an eye toward always looking to match one’s current skills and abilities with the right work environment.
