Week 6: Understanding career coaching
Welcome to Week 6 of the course.
Last week you focused on what mentoring could do for you – looking at how a mentor can help you to set and achieve goals, and learning how to find the right mentor. You also considered how you might become a mentor yourself.
This week, you’ll shift your perspective to look at career coaching. You’ll see how career coaching has developed over time, what it can do andt why it works.
Now watch the following video to introduce the week.
By the end of this week, you will be able to:
- understand how and why career coaching has developed
- recognise the difference career coaching can make
- describe some of the theory that underpins coaching.
You’ll start with a brief summary of the history of coaching that will underpin your understanding of the approaches and processes that coaches use.
