Career distraction #4
The case for coaching.
Complexity around career decision making is inevitable. Some decisions may seem difficult while others seem straight forward. When should you see someone? Who should you see? Having an objective discussion to clarify your own thinking is worthwhile. Talking with your mentor can help you to learn from their experience, whereas talking with a coach can be an opportunity to learn with or together, especially if you want to work toward positive relationships and positive outcomes.
People are complex and being pushed beyond your equilibrium can cause a shift to happen. Life is a process and so is learning. Coaching uses the socratic method of asking rather than telling. Maybe your mentor is a good coach?
