Career Coaching

SHVA Leadership career coaches understands job seeker and career changer needs. We give you the advantages you need to compete in today’s highly-competitive job market. If you are looking for a new job or advancing your current position (promotion), we are here to help! Our coaches work with you one-on-one to meet your needs. They do not use an “out of the box” approach. We tailor our coaching to you. Each client receives an individualized written action plan that will work individually for you.

SHVA employs a proprietary approach to career coaching. We offer support, advice, tools, and resources to enable you to land a new position in an expedited manner. Most of our clients are hired or promoted in a unique position, 60-70% quicker when compared to the average search time of 5-6 months. We work as hard as you do to get you the job you want!

What is a Career Coach? Why do I need one?

Career coaching is designed to enhance your job performance and job satisfaction. We also work to provide you with the tools and focus you need to overcome the fear and doubt which stop many career professionals from gaining traction on career progression. Our objective is simple: Eradicate the fog of fear and uncertainty in reaching your professional goals.

A career coach helps you determine your skills, interests and economic needs and then establish their professional goals and objectives to help you meet those goals.

We do this through a series of assessments and coaching sessions. These sessions target your immediate needs and motivate you to reach the next level!

If you want to make a life-changing career move or change jobs, a coach can assist you in designing a strategic plan to achieve your career goal. The techniques we employ have helped hundreds, and we are confident they will help you too!

Résumé Services

As part of your coaching engagement, SHVA Leadership Coaches will work with you to develop a résumé and cover letter. No need to pay for that seperate. However, we also offer standalone résumé services too!

Are Career Coaches the same as Career Counselors?

SHVA Leadership Advisers are not career counselors. Career coaching and career counseling are not the same.

Through a series of tools, exercises, and assessments, we identify your core values, transferable skills, areas of expertise, interests, and economic needs.  We use the results to help you in creating a plan to meet your needs and desires. Career coaching utilizes a results-oriented action plan for reaching your professional objectives.

However, the non‐judgmental perspective, privacy, and confidentiality of the coaching session provides a safe place for you to reflect on feedback and work on improving the specific areas you desire.

Career e-Coaching vs. Face to Face

We specialize in e-coaching! Studies show that e-coaching is just as effective as face-to-face coaching.

One of the main advantages of providing coaching in alternative formats such as telephone, Zoom®, Skype®, or e‐mail is we can pass the savings on to you!

You save travel expenses and time off work by participating in e-coaching sessions. However, you always have the option for a more expensive face-to-face meeting.

The study also indicated that career coaching had positive effects on:

  • organizational outcomes overall by 36%
  • specific skill-based issues by 28%
  • affective outcomes by 51%
  • individual-level results by 124%

How Many Career Coaching Sessions Are Required?

We do not force you into a 3 or 6-month commitment. The same study discussed earlier showed that there was no significant outcome difference by increasing the number of coaching sessions or lengthening out the coaching engagement. Also, there is not a “plateauing” of the impact of coaching (lengthening the coaching engagement did not improve the overall effectiveness of the coaching). Short‐term coaching has a beneficial effect. Again, we can pass the savings (hundreds or even thousands of dollars) on to you through shorter, more cost-effective coaching engagements.

However, depending on the severity or complexity of your coaching development issues, your coach may recommend extending your coaching engagement. Some employee development issues may require a higher number of sessions and longer-term coaching engagements than others.

Can I Afford Career Coaching?

Career coaching is not just for executive or self-made millionaires. Our clients are recent graduates, early to mid-career professionals, and people just like you looking to gain an edge or a promotion.  We are confident our coaching will help you reach your dreams.

If a professional career coach can help you cut a couple of weeks from your job search, how much have you saved? What if you were promoted now instead of six months from now, how much more could you earn?

Consider this: The average job search takes between 5-6 months. The average person needs between $3000 and $6000 per month to meet their economic needs.  Being unemployed can cost you $15,000-$36,000.

Our goal is to fast track your job search or promotion so you can get in a position that better suits your values, skills, and monetary needs. Perhaps, instead of asking if you can afford a career coach, you might ask, can I afford not to have a career coach?

SHVA Leadership Advisers also provides Leadership Development, consultation services, and Executive Coaching. If you want a more generalized approach, we offer whole  Life Coaching. While résumé services are part of our coaching engagements, we also offer stand alone résumé services.

How the SHVA Career Coaching Process Works:

Select your preferred coaching engagement from the selections below.

Complete the questionnaire(s), coaching agreements, and upload required documents. Schedule a time to conduct a phone or Zoom© consultation to gather all relevant information, discuss your goals, needs, and desires with your Coach.

After your first session, you will schedule a follow-up call or Zoom© meeting (at least one-week after your first appointment) to review your progress, resolve any concerns, receive tips, coaching, or training. Typically, this step repeats each week based on your desires, needs and selected coaching engagement.

SHVA Leadership Advisers bring the coaching and leadership development to you!

For Virtual meetings, we have no limitations. We will work with you anywhere in the world via video conferencing or telephone.

For In-Person meetings, our default travel area is the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex. However, we are available for coaching anywhere in the world.

If you would like us to travel outside of the DFW area, do not register for a service below. Instead contact us at [email protected] to make the arrangements.

Free Career Coaching Consultation – Virtual 

For those who are not sure that a full commitment is for them, we recommend you attend a Career Coaching Consultation. There is no cost and no obligation!

This session is a complimentary time for you to meet Gary and discuss your needs.

 

Because all coaches are not the same, we strive to find the coach that will best suit your needs. If during this session, we agree that another coach or service may better serve you, we will provide you the information we have (we do not recommend specific coaches, doctors, or consultants. Instead we recommend certain types and categories that we know may be better suited to your needs).

 

There is no cost or obligation associated with this session. We want to help you reach your goals. We will work with you to make it happen, even if it is with another coach or consultant.

Sign up! We look forward to meeting you!

In-Person Career Coaching Discovery Engagement (Dallas-Ft. Worth, TX)
