Balance coaching licensing training is an original and practical career management coaching Questionnaire and Toolkit developed by Rob Nathan and Gilly Freedman of Career Counselling Services. We have been trialling the Questionnaire and the 29 new coaching tools with excellent results.
If you are a career coach or regularly having career conversations, Balance™ will enable you to broaden and deepen the range of career-related issues that you can respond to with confidence. You will thus increase your professionalism and potential client market in offering career coaching.
Our clients sometimes ask the wrong questions. They seek to change their employer or career because things ‘are not working out’. Yet, after career coaching, a good proportion of these people re-commit to their current role.
From a combination of research and our own 40 years of experience, we have noticed that some people place too much emphasis on their own needs and others on those of their employer. A healthy approach is to balance your energy in a number of areas: building relationships, learning and development, adapting to change, use of personal energy, career development strategy and work life balance.
