Career Coach for a Woman

Career Coach for a Woman

A woman career coach who knows what you face

Career Coach Wendy Billie, who divides her time between a Fortune 50 company and Feroce Coaching, has been coaching women for many years.  Below she sets out a typical conversation you might have with your career coach for a woman.

In the excerpted coaching session below, one of our women coaching clients, Sue, begins to realize some of the barriers that stand in her way to making a career change.  Sue shares with her coach (Wendy) her father’s resistance to women pursuing careers.  Sue also defines her husband’s resistance to change and his views on her employment search.  We catch them in mid-conversation . . .

Life and Career Coach Wendy Billie

Coach Wendy

Wendy:  What was the first thing you thought of doing for a career when you were younger?

Sue:  I wanted to be a teacher but I have never been an expert at anything, so decided against that career.


Wendy:  Why do you need to be an expert?  Tell me a person in your life that you feel was a career role model for you.

Sue:  I don’t know.  My father’s job was in the trade industry and he was against women going to college.  He didn’t like change and he felt that it had never been acceptable for a woman to go to college.  I didn’t learn anything about careers at home because my father’s view was that mom could work to supplement the family income and she didn’t really follow a career dream—I don’t even know if she had one.  The joint subject of careers and women was not discussed in my family.

Wendy:  How does your father feel about your career choices so far?

Sue:  We don’t talk.  Our relationship was very bad after I decided to go to college. Women do not choose a career.  They can work to make money and help support the family.


But, I know now that this is why I am seeking career coaching.  I have not had a career role model and I never knew what I wanted to do after college.

Wendy:  You said you always wanted to be a teacher, but you are afraid that you won’t know everything a student may ask you.  Are you a woman who has chosen careers in which you can be successful immediately to prove your father wrong?

Sue:  That’s probably true!  My husband is very similar in that he has this idea that he can decide what I do for my career.  I used to make a lot of money and he never understood why I left that job.  So, he feels as if I should either make a lot of money with the career I choose or go back to my old job.

Wendy:  It sounds as if you have just identified some barriers to changing your career path.  We’ll talk during another coaching session on how to address them.  First, let’s focus on identifying your life passions and we’ll use them to focus your next career move . . .

In addition to the coaching, we have the expertise to guide you through powerful career assessment tools.
