Negotiating a career or life transition can be an overwhelming process, and accessing support to plan for and manage these transitions can optimize the chance of a successful outcome. Life transitions can include major life events, such as postsecondary adjustments, marriage and family planning, moving, and preparing for retirement, but can also incorporate lifestyle goals around wellness and fitness, interpersonal goals, and improving overall life satisfaction and happiness. Setting achievable, small goals in line with a clear, overarching vision can make the process of creating meaningful changes not only manageable, but enjoyable.
Most people change jobs multiple times over the course of a lifetime, which means that a conscientious, holistic approach to career planning and development is important to both short-term and long-term success. Whether an individual is entering the workforce for the first time, returning after a maternity, medical or other absence, or looking for a career change, it can be helpful to work with a coach to explore how one’s unique personality, values, strengths, experiences and interests align with options for employment. At The Clinic on Dupont, we offer life and career coaching to support our clients in making the changes needed to fulfill their personal and professional goals.
