I received an email from someone who was having a difficulty landing a job after being called for interviews a few times. She thought there must be something wrong because she was not getting hired after these interviews. I offered to give her a thirty-minute complimentary coaching because I had a sense of where the problem lies and I wanted to help her.
Twenty minutes into the coaching process, she had an “aha” moment when I made her realize which type of work she should be applying for considering her experience and interests. She said, “Wow…you were able to help me figure this out after talking to me in just twenty minutes. I never thought of this before!”
At the end of the session I was so pleased that I was able to help her. But more importantly, it made me realize why I am doing what I’m doing in the first place. So who helped whom?
