5 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Career Coach


How did you get into coaching?

Most coaches I know are people who worked for many years in information-processing or management roles, and gradually realized that they were most fulfilled when working with people and helping them to develop.They are generally thrilled to be able to follow their passion. At the same time, what they did before may have a direct bearing on the kinds of career issues you face. In 2009, there are coaches trained as lawyers, coaches trained as bankers, and even coaches trained as cops. You can find a good fit.


Are you coachable?

This final question is for you, not the coach. To be coachable, you have to be open and conscious. You are, after all, trying to achieve something that you haven’t achieved yet. People are uncoachable when they have internalized cynicism as their core definition of self, or when they are unwilling or unable to detach from a narrative of victimization. Coaching doesn’t require you to believe that happiness is around the corner, but it does require you to be interested in taking a look.
