In the age of the hybrid workplace, our personal and professional lives are more interconnected than ever. Personal coaching services are a helpful way to navigate job-related issues so you can perform at your best in both the workplace and in your daily life. 

Working with a personal coach can assist you in a myriad of ways. For instance, a coach can help you stay accountable to your goals, overcome burnout or help you find excitement in your career again. 

Here are five benefits of personal coaching you may not be aware of:  

1. It has a therapeutic effect. 
Just as we have the option of seeing a therapist to help with our mental health, working with a certified personal coach can help you cope with difficult workplace challenges or changes.  

While therapy typically looks to the past, personal coaching looks to the future to help solve problems or advance your goals. But in a similar manner to therapy, personal coaching provides you with confidential 1:1 sessions that give you the tools you need to manage obstacles or stressors that might be holding you back.  

Our personal coaching program also provides ongoing support between sessions via text or email, ensuring we are there to help when extra support is needed.  

2. It provides mentorship and companionship. 

For solo professionals or entrepreneurs, a personal coach can provide companionship and mentorship to ensure your career journey is not a lonely one.  

Additionally, coaches can provide mentorship services to a first-time manager who is looking for leadership guidance, for example. 

When it comes to companionship and mentorship, establishing an authentic, trusting relationship with your coach will ensure your career journey includes the support, connection and inspiration you need to succeed.  

3. It cultivates greater self-awareness.   

Coaching can improve your sense of self-awareness by providing you with a deep dive into where you’re at in your life and career, what brought you here, and where you’d like to be.  
Research shows that heightening your self-awareness can help improve creativity, communication, confidence and emotional intelligence, among other benefits.1 

In your first 1:1 session with an ivy Group coach, you’ll share your goals and personal values, which will form the basis of a personalized action plan that will further and hold you accountable to your goals.  

4. It acts as a “personal trainer”.   

Like a personal trainer, a personal coach can help bolster your strengths while helping you overcome your weaknesses. A coach will evaluate your personal situation and provide you with actionable steps to help you improve in the areas you desire. As an example, one of the “personal training”–like services our coaches offer job seekers is interview preparation, which includes interviewing tips, techniques and mock interviews.  

5. It helps you achieve your goals. 

Last but not least, coaching is a great way to stay on track with your goals. Whether you’re feeling stuck in your current role or you’re thinking of making a career change, consulting with a coach can help you objectively evaluate your situation, make a plan, set goals, and cultivate a growth mindset that will help you thrive.  

Ultimately, personal coaching empowers you to do exceptional work so you can reach your full potential.
