Coaching involves working with someone to deal with an unresolved issue. That issue can be anything, including but not limited to the following:
Coaching is NOT about me telling you what to do - it's about helping you to realize the innate power and confidence you've had all along. My role is to guide and shepherd.
Once we get further into the career exploration journey, I often help my clients address:
People with less than ten years of experience are usually one or more of the following: Individual contributors, first-time managers, pre-graduate school, or recent graduates, who have held one or many jobs.
For these individuals, typical coaching topics include:
-Finding the right career path
-MBA/Masters/Grad School considerations and applications -Understanding job search strategy and tactics (i.e., applications, interviewing, networking, resume, and offer negotiation)
People with 10-20 years of experience are often senior individual contributors, managers, or managers of managers, and can be either established in their careers or looking to make a shift.
As a result, much of our coaching is focused on:
-Aligning what you value most to the jobs, companies, and industry that have what you value
-Work-Life Balance (i.e. family, career growth, school, etc.)
-Feedback and perceptions from direct reports, bosses, customers, and other stakeholders
These are individuals who are senior executives (C-level), entrepreneurs or have more than 20 years of experience. This group often faces challenges of running an organization or being a key leadership team member.
Most of our coaching work is often centered on:
-Life coaching around what matters most
-Processing feedback from customers, direct reports, the market, etc.
-Thinking through personnel questions (hiring, firing, mentoring, coaching, etc.)
"AF" means "as f*ck" and is an expression used (often by millennials) to mean "very" or "really."
As in, "that concert was fun af," or really fun.
For you non-millenials, AF simply stands for my initials (Aaron Fung).
