In the Self Discovery phase we work together to
identify your true passions. So often we can get
caught in a rut doing something just because we've always
done it and we're good at it, it's what we know, it's what
we've invested our time and money in, or it's what we think
we should be doing. In this phase of the career transition
process you explore your life purpose,
what you're good at (skills), and what you like
to do (interests). Where those overlap, we have
found your true strengths.
By honoring your strengths you engage your
source of power and become motivated to find or create that
What IGI's clients say:
When I first contacted you I was mentally exhausted, confused,
and in danger of burn-out. Your coaching sessions have really
been the beginning of a self-knowing and healing process.
I really need to thank for your help. I have still a long
road to go that includes where I want to live and work.
But I am at a much better place right now, much stronger,
and I have much more self-insight. I am confident, rested,
relaxed. Over the past few months I found out a lot about
myself, and found out I really want to be a person who can
make a difference to others. I found that coaching is a
(self-)powerful, truthful, and modern instrument for this.
My vision is to become a career coach working with international
people who are not in their home countries and dealing with
career, location and life issues. As a first step I enrolled
with the International Coach Academy. I have my 1st class
Jacinta Hin – International Career
what you love and you will never work another day in your life!
What is your calling in life? What would you do if you were guaranteed
to succeed? What kinds of things do you do naturally, that take
no effort at all? What were you doing when you experienced being
in the flow and time simply slipped away? Through answering these
questions and more you will be able to articulate your life purpose
and then build your career around it, never 'working' another day
in your life as the money simply rolls in.
Through conversation and coaching you will tap into fond memories
and hidden dreams. We will explore your likes and dislikes and how
those can play an integral role in choosing the career that awakens
Once you identify and own your values and know the values that
are important to you in an organization, you will begin to attract
the right kind of companies into your job search. By aligning your
personal values and the organization's values, you will gain much
more satisfaction and offer much more to your employer.
Needs and Wants
Needs and wants are two different things though tied together so
closely that they can sometimes muddy the waters. By separating
them out and bringing them to the surface we can create parameters
for your job search.
Personality Type Inventories
By completing inventories such as the Myers Briggs Type Inventory
(MBTI), your self-awareness will increase dramatically. Tendencies
and preferences will become clear so you can use this as a piece
of the career discovery puzzle.
Physical Sensation Awareness
Your body knows all...if only you'll listen to it. As you explore
your options we will tap into your physical sensations for your
Reflecting on your accomplishments and the things you enjoy doing,
you will clarify your strengths and utilize them in moving forward
into your next job.
Believe it or not, you have accomplished a GREAT deal throughout
your life. You may not recognize these things as accomplishment,
though they are! Once you recognize your accomplishments for what
they are, you can use them to identify your strengths, beef up your
resume, and increase your self-confidence.
If only you knew what was 'out there' that might fit your strengths
and personality type. You will have an opportunity to explore various
occupations that sound interesting to you and select a few that
really rise to the top. With this, the next step is to do research
and narrow it down even more and even combine a few to create your
very own occupation.
How do you answer the question, "What do you do?" This
can be a very uncomfortable question to answer while in a career
transition. By getting clear on the stage you're in, where you've
been, where you're going, and how others can help you, you will
answer this question with confidence and attract those who can help.
This is key to effective networking.
