What is career coaching?

Career coaching is a professional relationship between a coach and client where the coach helps the client explore their interests in developing and improving their career. Benefits to clients can include:

  • identifying and developing skills to increase satisfaction in the client’s current job
  • designing or refining a career plan for advancement
  • transitioning to a leadership role
  • overcoming obstacles in the job seeking process
  • and much more.


In short, coaching can help to bridge the gaps and accelerate progress over you “going it alone”.

Career coaching is an investment – specifically, an investment of your time and money in your career and life. Depending upon the reference source, the average career spans 80,000 to 90,000 hours! Many people initially look at coaching as a tool for advancement or increasing their salary but find that it can provide many more benefits such as increased motivation/productivity, enhanced job/life satisfaction, emotional improvements, stronger individual/team relationships, and more. While there are no guarantees, career coaching helps most clients and provides returns that greatly outstrip the time and capital investments.

And don’t forget – Coaching by Mindring is all about YOU! We focus on your needs throughout the entire process. So what does the coaching process look like…..

Why Career Coaching by Mindring Consulting?
What do you have to offer?

During my 30+ year career, I saw and experienced a lot – some good, some bad, and some very ugly. When I retired I knew I could help people just like you avoid some of the pitfalls and challenges I faced.

I know our paths are likely very different – that’s expected. I have helped staff, peers, and friends build confidence in themselves and pursue plans that were best for them – regardless of being good for me or the company we served. We were not on the same paths – it was working with them to find their path, their way that was the common point.

It’s also not about helping people “up”. Instead, as I help people move forward I also expect for them to eventually stand on the shoulders of my and other’s knowledge and experience and continue on well into the future.

To give you some insight into my path, here are a few experiences I draw from every day:

  • In college, while I had a steady direction on my study courses, my thoughts on career direction changed several times – from pre-med to several specialty medical professions to finally pursuing a graduate degree to enter pharmaceutical research.
  • In graduate school, I learned first-hand how plans can change unexpectedly and how views of a career can change with knowledge. I also know the strength it takes to decide to change your path rather than pushing forward just because “that’s the plan.”
  • In my first job out of graduate school I worked in a lab and found that my “hobby” – working with technology – was really a strength and passion. It took time and courage to pursue a complete field change.
  • Throughout my career I had times of frustration – not being heard, not being understood, not being able to express myself, handling ambiguity, wearing “many hats”, etc. I continued to learn and find others that could help me understand and grow.
  • I took on leadership roles. Few transitions provided any formal training. I developed my skills and path with the help of some great resources and learning from leaders I admired.
  • I was laid-off during the “Dot Com” bubble and was with a major financial institution close to ground-zero during the 2008 financial crisis. While these were fearful times, I learned a lot about being prepared, self and situational awareness, and to better trust my analysis of things going on around me.
  • I’ve been a “care giver” to several family members. That non-career, role is likely the most thankless and lonely role that I’ve had yet the memories are priceless.
  • I made the decision to retire early. Leaving my friends and company was difficult. Making this life transition provided me with the time and energy to help others, like you, with their career path beyond the confines of a single organization and my personal, professional network.

What can you expect from the career coaching process?

Choose your package for
Career Revolution

When we both feel the coaching partnership is a great fit, you’ll select a package, sign the coaching agreement contract, and pay for the package (we accept major credit cards and bank transfers). All of this is taken care of in one, consolidated, convenient step.

Prep for your coaching journey

You’ll get ready for your first session with ease. Booking the session is through the same booking tool as our initial chat – you choose a time that’s convenient for you. A WELCOME guide will be included to gather some initial feedback from you to have a great launch session.

Let the coaching begin!

During the first session we’ll set a solid foundation by answering the question “What do YOU want to accomplish?”. We’ll work the rest of the program on your needs (don’t worry – we can adjust the plan as you have time for introspection and self-learning).

Coach. Rinse. Repeat.

We’ll spend most of our package sessions here working on one or more of your priorities – exploring, refining understanding, evaluating progress, and growing closer to your target. While it’s not quite as easy as shampooing (Lather. Rinse. Repeat) – the process will become more comfortable and, in many cases, faster paced. Throughout the process you’ll have access to the coach (me) providing support on questions, concerns, doubts, and more.

Close package. Review success. Know your ring.

As we close out the package, we’ll revisit successes, challenges, and opportunities. You’ll leave the final session revisiting the progress you’ve made and what you’ve learned about yourself through the prior sessions. You’ll have a clear plan to continue progress beyond the coaching sessions and reflect on what support you may need (or not need) in the future. In short, you’ll know your (career) ring!

Beyond the final session, you’ll continue to have access to the coach for support.
