In recent trends, social media has seen many life and career coaching ads with the industry flourishing now more than ever. Although the profession has been around for a while, how prevalent it is these days makes you wonder: why exactly would you need a life coach?
Here are some typical reasons why life and career coaching is much needed now more than ever before.
Throughout 2020, over 114 million people lost their jobs due to the Coronavirus pandemic. With a global lockdown and little or no need for official duties, there was no reason to keep paying workers who had to stay home indefinitely.
Unfortunately, you may be one of them.
But on the flip side, this is an opportunity to reevaluate your career path. There could be some other job or career that may offer – more meaningful work than the previous one had done. This could be a turning point for that change you’ve always desired. And a life and career coach can help you access your ultimate desires for your ideal career.
Being at home with your family for months on end may have given you enough time to think about how you’d wish to spend most of your time – moving forward.
That job you’ve been doing for years before the lockdown, how much time did it allow you to spend quality time with your family doing what you love? How much did it offer you financially, psychologically, and otherwise?
Life and career coaching offers you the opportunity to reflect, reinvent, and design a new path to a more holistic approach to work and life.
Even as an adult, you may not have found that thing that gives you an ultimate sense of purpose and fulfilment— the Japanese refer to this as your Ikigai, your reason for being. So what about your being and purpose makes you jump out of bed every morning? You may have a great well-paying job that offers everything you want, but you feel there’s something still missing.
Perhaps you have ideas but don’t know how or where to begin. This is a time to seek life and career coaching to help you find clarity, direction, and all the tools you need to live a life of purpose.
Now more than ever before, people are looking to do more, to be more. You’ve achieved all the goals you set out in the beginning. Now could be a time to set new ones.
By working with a life and career coach over 4-6 sessions, you can set new goals and design an effective path to take your career to the next level.
Life and career coaching can help build your self-awareness, emotional intelligence, resilience, and ability to contribute to your world. You may long to make an impact and give back to your society, but you don’t know how to begin. A life and career coach becomes somebody you want to partner with to establish your values, take a giant leap in your personal development and reinvent yourself.
Notably, we’re experiencing an all-time high in demand for life and career coaching due to the situation the world has been thrown into. The pandemic and the growing search for ultimate happiness are just a few reasons why.
Life and career coaching typically harnesses knowledge, psychology, and stats of people’s lives and careers throughout history. Coaches use this knowledge to help steer you to avoid common mistakes, make the right decisions, and live the kind of life known to foster ultimate happiness and fulfilment.
