The goal of career coaching is to empower professionals by helping them make informed decisions about their trajectory. It’s a solution-based approach to career decisions.
Career coaches focus on results, actions and accountability. They start right where the client is “now”. Most commonly, they use Skype or telephone calls to interact with their clients, which enlarges the audience they can reach out to.
Career coaching can be done at any point during the work life of a professional. It can go from finding a student job at the very beginning of your career, building a new CV, negotiating specific conditions, to guiding you towards your next career step or transition, or even to retiring.
Career coaching will give you the methodology and mindset to make smart professional decisions and find your sweet spot – i.e. which opportunities exist, what you are good at and what you want from life.
You get personalized, expert advice that is tailored to your specific situation. Career coaching will give you the tools to refine your next career step and set out a clear path towards success. Your coach will give you the key to assess your current career situation, identify your strengths and weaknesses as well as your differentiating factors, identify potential skills gaps and recommend actions to fill them.
You dedicate time to focus on your career. It’s very common among professionals to have the desire to revisit their career and take on new challenges, but most fail to make time to work on it due to their daily routine. With a career coach you will have well-defined, realistic goals and a clear action plan, which will make it easier to organize yourself and work towards your career objectives.

Everyone encounters stress during their lives at one point—never-ending bills, demanding schedules, work, and family responsibilities—and that can make stress seem inescapable and uncontrollable. Stress management skills are designed to help a person take control of their lifestyle, thoughts, and emotions and teach them healthy ways to cope with their problems.
Find the Cause
The first step in stress management is identifying your stressors. While this sounds fairly easy—it’s not hard to point to major changes or a lot of work piling up—chronic stress can be complicated, and most people don’t realize how their habits contribute to their stress. Maybe work piling up isn’t from the actual demands of your job, but more so from your procrastination. You have to claim responsibility for the role you play in creating your stress or you won’t be able to control it.
Strategies for Stress Management
Once you’ve found what causes your stress, focus on what you can control. Eliminate the realistic stressors and develop consistent de-stressing habits. Instead of watching TV or responding to texts in bed after work - take a walk, or read a book. Maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and getting enough quality sleep, will ease feelings of stress and help you relax.
Also, make a conscious effort to set aside time for yourself and for relaxation. Alone time can be whatever you need it to be. Some people like doing activities such as tai chi, yoga, or meditation, but you can also treat yourself to something simple, like taking a bubble bath, listening to music, or watching a funny movie.
Finally, don’t feel like you have to solve your stress on your own. Reach out to your family and friends. Whether you need help with a problem or just need someone to listen, find a person who will be there to positively reinforce and support you. If stress becomes chronic, don’t hesitate to seek the help of a Coach to goal set and create your new management plan.
We all have moments of frustration whether they be associated with a friend, a family member, or a disagreement in your everyday life, but there are several positive strategies to utilize when it comes to dealing with conflict.
What qualifies as a conflict?
According to the Office of Human Resource Development at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, conflict is understood by analyzing various behaviors and the consequences each behavior produces on individuals living the dilemma.
- Avoidance: This is the person who wishes to ignore the problem and will allow it to dissipate or squander. Unfortunately, quite the contrary is happening in this situation. The problem then swells under the surface until it’s no longer avoidable and will need to be addressed.
- Standing your Ground: People who use this technique may appear controlling and aggressive in their means of communication. They fear not having their needs met if they don’t set the rules and direct the conversation.
- Surrendering: Often perceived as the diplomat, the person using this tactic concedes to the needs of others. They place the needs and opinions of others on their own because preserving the relationship(s) is the ultimate goal.
- Compromise/Sacrifice: This method is a sort of concession and, while it seems to be a good route to take, it’s not the best approach. People in this category make a sequence of tradeoffs which means they are focusing on what they want as opposed to understanding the other’s viewpoint.
- Collaborate: People who practice collaboration care about win-win solutions. This simply means that they scout common aspirations and needs, to where every party knows their opinions and feeling are important and are going to be heard. This style needs a lot of cooperation, assertiveness and communication among the parties.
Ultimately, understanding your wants and needs as well as your behavior patterns will establish internal insight. You will have a better understanding for not just yourself, but for others around you and how situations may or may not unfold. This knowledge will give you the preliminary tools for conflict resolution.
If you are currently working through a contentious separation or divorce, you’ve likely heard the term “family coaching.” Perhaps it has been ordered by a law court, recommended by your legal or medical teams, or maybe you’ve sought it out on your own as a means to work through your challenging circumstances. But what is family coaching?
The truth is that there are many, MANY different approaches to family coaching, and even more self-proclaimed experts who claim to have a revolutionary approach to the practice. It can be tough to figure out which service is right for your family; your decision can drastically affect your ability to effectively navigate separation and restructuring. At worst, the wrong coach or approach can make your situation worse, damaging parent-child relationships already strained by trauma.
Below, you’ll find a few notes and pointers based on our experience in the family coaching industry, as well as more information on the unique approach that Bald Eagle's Family Coaching offers. Read on to learn more about family coaching and how Bald Eagle Coaching can give you the skills to navigate your family’s restructuring.
A MIXED BAG?
Family coaching is different from counselling, psychology, medical and legal practices, and other professional fields you may encounter during your separation or divorce. Unlike these professions, there is no standard approach to family coaching, nor is there any universally recognized accreditation for practicing family coaching. This isn’t necessarily bad; often, family coaches transcend the boundaries of the psychological and legal fields to provide the best possible care for their clients in one place. However, the lack of standardization means that every family coaching service will be different, and different approaches may be more or less effective for your unique family dynamic.
Thankfully, most family coaches approach their practice with integrity. While “snake oil salespeople” certainly exist within the industry, the vast majority of coaches have a genuine desire to help families experiencing difficulties. However, without overarching professional standards, family coaches often employ wildly different methods and tactics, some of which can further damage your strained family dynamic.
So what does this all mean for you and your family? Before entering into any kind of family coaching, do your research! Wherever possible, arrange to speak or meet with a family coach before beginning their program(s). They should be able to clearly articulate their approach to family coaching and what will be expected of you and your family throughout the process. Bear in mind that many family coaches have specialties or areas of expertise; make sure these align with your family’s unique circumstances.
Additionally, seek out family coaches that teach skills and techniques that will help your family beyond your present situation. The very best family coaches will not only tell you what to do now, but also empower you with the skills and knowledge to maintain and protect a healthy family environment throughout every phase of your and your child’s life.

WORK AND CAREER ISSUES
Most of us spend more time at work than at home, therefore the workplace should be an environment where we feel safe and comfortable. However, because work is where a bunch of different personalities, communication styles, and worldviews gather around, things don’t always go smoothly. In fact, workplace bullying is on the rise and though statistics vary, some studies reveal that nearly half of all American workers have been affected by this problem, either as a target or as a witness to abusive behavior against a co-worker.
Examples of common workplace issues include:
- Poor job fit
- Mental anguish
- Sexual or verbal harassment
- Low motivation and job dissatisfaction
How a Coach Can Help
Coaching for overcoming work and career challenges can help a person develop a better understanding of their wants and needs as well as approach alternative ways to handle tension while on the clock. Coaching is a neutral setting where patients can discuss their fears, worries, or stressors, and regain control of their happiness.
Coaching tends to work well when addressing workplace issues because coaching such as this can effectively develop skills and techniques that can stem from these conflicts. While not a mental health professional, a coach can also teach coping skills that will help a person manage work-related stress.
