This month’s issue of the National Career Development Association (NCDA) magazine Career Convergence features the article "Fear: A Common Theme in Private Practice," by Beth Wingert, a career coach and professional development instructor for Kuder.
Career coaches often work with clients who desire, yet are fearful of, making a career change. According to Wingert, "The key is to help the client identify, brake down, and manage the fear so that it is no longer a barrier in their career development."
Wingert's article explores the role of the career coach in lifting these clients' spirits by uncovering their strengths, encouraging them to be brave, and challenging them to look beyond their fears to a hope-filled future.
