Why explore your life history during career coaching?

Reflecting and articulating your life story can lead to insights, rich meaning and unification of events that seemed disparate until retelling the story. Your past experiences give clues to your motives, abilities, values, interests and character strengths. The way you decide to organise, retell and sequence your story unifies your life story and describes possible development pathways. This process helps me form an overview of your life and career and gives me an insight into your life patterns and themes and clues to occupational possibilities.

I help you discover your strengths and desires and uncover discrepancies and contrasting periods of your life as variations on, quite often, a common theme running through your life. I present my findings in a short report.

During this process I recommend assessments that identify your strengths and talents to help form and confirm your life story. My preference is for:

  1. Clifton Strengths Finder by Gallup https://www.gallupstrengthscenter.com/Purchase/en-US/Index which gives your talents
  2. Via Character Strengths assessment http://www.viacharacter.org/www/Character-Strengths/Personality-Assessment which gives your character strengths.
