EXPAT COACHING Coaching as we see itThe aim of our coaching is to guide candidates in (career) change processes. The objective of acourse will be to find out what the most energizing career choice appears to be - sometimes therewill be more than one – and to work out the way beyond. Guiding the candidate towards self-management and taking responsibility (again) for his/her own life and making his/her ownchoices are the prime factors. Above all, the coaching is focused on the candidate “going intoaction” again and wanting to “have a go”. With candidates who have not yet reached this stage,or are found not yet to be ready for this, coaching or treatment by another professional will bediscussed.Central to a coaching course is that the candidate will gain more insight into his/her own choices,wishes, dreams and ideals and also into his/her own qualities, bringing forth a (new) focus on thefuture. Possible hindrances and/or convictions will be mapped out and further examined so that a(realistic) career path can be outlined. The candidate will be given exercises by his/her coach todo at home or specifically outside the home.The coaching will take place by means of individual discussions with a career coach. The coachserves as a sounding board, will reflect, stimulate, challenge, sometimes be critical and keep onasking questions. The coaches make use of various discussion techniques and methods, andvarious tests and studies may be introduced. This serves only as a means, however, never as anend. It is only intended to make the candidate step outside his/her own comfort zone and to helphim or her to think “out of the box”, and in so doing to gain new perspectives.The discussions will be held in a “safe” environment in which confidentiality and privacy areguaranteed. It is important that the candidate is willing, and able, to be “open” to his/her coach,and a “click” and confidence in the person is therefore very important. This applies to both clientand coach. This is why a getting-to-know-each-other discussion, which is free of charge, alwaystakes place before a coaching course is embarked upon.The coaches are respectful and without prejudice towards the person and his/her choices. Thecoaches do not give answers, and will not push or pull or give their own opinion: the answers liefully and solely within the candidate him/herself.
