What is Vitality Career Coaching?
Vitality Career Coaching is the realization of a lifelong dream. I believe effective coaching comes from understanding the challenges, fears, anxiety, hopelessness, and frustrations we face in lives. Our career are a huge part of our lives and I started Vitality Career Coaching as I believe it is vital for each of us to find career fulfillment and for me to do this kind of work.
My Journey to Career Coaching.
In 2014 I went through a life-changing major medical event. Afterward, I found myself at a crossroads feeling lost and uncertain about the future. I needed to find passion in my life again. My priorities changed as did what it meant to be a "success." This is when I started building a unique set of tools people can use to uncover their goals, what's holding them back, and what they can do to be "successful."
I created the VITAL Goal Setting method by incorporating concepts like Common Cause, Mindset, Holland-Code, Grit, and theories on leadership, communication, employee development, training, human resources, mindfulness, and business into a unique and meaningful technique to set goals. The VITAL method is a highly effective tool for helping clients develop clear and attainable goals.
Why I Became a Career Coach.
Everyone has value, potential, and ability inside them. Unfortunately, a lot of people are never given an opportunity to figure out what really motivates them. They go into careers because a career was suggested to them - not out of desire. This typically ends in being unsatisfied with a career. To get the most out of the work you do, it is critical to take the time to figure out what kind of work aligns best with you as an individual.
We spend more of our lives at work than we do with our families. If for no other reason, we owe it to ourselves to engage in work we genuinely care about. This is why I made the bold choice to become a Certified Professional Coach.
A Different Approach to Career Coaching.
There are many paths to success, and each of us must first decide what “success” means for ourselves.
I have worked in many roles during my professional life. My first profitable business partnership was at age 19. I went on later to follow in my moms’ footsteps into the insurance industry where I was quickly recognized for my ability, work ethic, dedication to learning, and desire to grow. I moved quickly into leadership roles and becoming a department lead. During this time, developing ways to create opportunities for staff to grow, learn, and advance in their careers became one of the greatest aspects of my job. This was when I first started to discover my passion.
My professional life has spanned the private sector, being an entrepreneur, and also in non-profit as a career specialist for a state vocational rehabilitation contractor. This range in experience provides me with complrehensive understanding of the challenges our careers can create.
I am passionate about mentoring, creating opportunity, helping others advance, and empowering them to reach their goals. I believe deeply in the value of career coaching. As a coach. I engage in outside the box thinking and framing challenges in ways that make them manageable.
