Career Coaching

Empowerment for your professional life

 

Are you stuck at work and don’t know how to move? Do you have a work related dilemma and think which decision to make? Or maybe you have no idea what to do with your professional life? Try career coaching!

What is it? Career coaching is a process that aims at empowering client (yes, that means you!) in taking actions that lead to an intended change.

Coaching process is based on increasing self-awareness, looking at a given situation from different perspectives and taking specific actions. A coach leads a coaching process and structures a meeting, while you are responsible for making decisions and taking specific actions on the way to the chosen goal. The method is based on asking questions and offering tools to learn about different sides of a given situation, change the way of thinking, generate solutions, support decision-making process.

Coaching focuses on the present and the future. A coach doesn’t give any advice nor suggests solutions.

Career coaching is offered to every student of the University of Lodz. Service is also available for alumni up to 2 years after graduation from UL.
