7 Step Dream Job Career Coaching Process

Are you one of the nine out of 10 American workers who do not like their jobs?

Act now to find the job of your dreams!

Every individual has a vocation (“a calling”) that he or she was meant to be doing. This calling comes from aligning your natural talents to who you truly are. To those who need career counseling, make sure you choose a dream job that most aligns to who you truly are.

Many services offer career counseling for men and women who are unsatisfied in their careers, but only address the issues associated with getting you into a new job. Dream Job Career Coaching doesn’t just focus on helping you transition from one job to the next, but shows you how to properly align your deepest interests and passions with a career that truly embodies who you are.

The Unique, Seven-Step Dream Job Process

Joel will guide you through a seven-step, action-oriented process that helps you define and land work that aligns with your natural gifts and passions. With specific exercises and tools, you’ll gain clarity about fulfilling work and acquire the necessary tools to reveal the unique talents typically hidden under layers of doubts and self-imposed limitations.

While this Seven-Step Dream Job Process focuses specifically on your career, the resulting fulfillment will spill over to other parts of your life, as well. You will discover standards of excellence that you can apply in all aspects of your life. The Seven-Step Dream Job Process is really about pursuing a life of meaning. As you move into a job that reflects your aspirations, innermost desires and passions, your life will become aligned with your true self.

Joel is proud to help people who need career counseling obtain fulfillment in life. When you sign up for Joel’s Dream Job Career Coaching, you’ll receive personalized coaching through each of the following steps:

STEP 1: Establish Your Foundation
The first step in the Seven-Step Dream Job Process helps you to create a strong personal foundation that allows you to come from a place of clarity and strength as you begin to define your dream job.

STEP 2: Break Through Barriers
This step shows you how to identify personal barriers that have kept you from achieving your dreams. Once you can clearly identify a barrier, you learn how to formulate methods to overcome or put them in perspective. You will gain clarity about what you want from life by shifting from the work you “should” be doing to what you love to do.

STEP 3: Imagine New Possibilities
In step three you use your imagination to conjure up images of what is truly possible. You will be amazed at how many dreams manifest themselves once you tap into what is possible.

STEP 4: Unleash Your Innate Gifts
In this step you recall different times in your life when you have been fulfilled. From this perspective, you identify your innate gifts that directly lead to satisfaction at the work place. This step is particularly helpful in defining what you love to do and applying those insights to the creation of your dream job.

STEP 5: Define Your Dream
In step five you create your personal dream job. An action-step process helps you determine the activities to which you are most drawn. You will identify your core values, clarify common themes in your life, and weave all of these together to declare your dream job.

STEP 6: Formulate Your Strategy
In step six you formulate the strategy and timetable needed to reach your dreams. As you define your plan, you begin turning it into action steps. This helps you become clear on the daily and weekly routine needed to bring your strategy into a dream come true.

STEP 7: Land Your Dream Job
In step seven you declare your commitment to landing your dream job. Then you are guided through a handful of activities that will help you to land your dream job.

Common Fears Associated with Career Change

If you are afraid of leaving the security of your current job to do something more fulfilling, and are seeking an individual career counseling session, you are not alone. Others have traveled this road, recognizing they were ready for a change at work. Here are comments by clients before they started the Seven-Step Dream Job Coaching Process:

  • “I’m 34 years old – I am going stay close to the industry that’s made me money. It’s hard to leave that comfort zone but I know this isn’t what I’m meant to do in life. I need to decrease the control money has over my decisions and increase the value that fulfillment will have when I find something I truly love.”
  • “After earning a masters degree in both physics and business, my future is still unclear to me. My first job was not fulfilling and I was extremely disappointed after investing such a huge amount of time and money.”
  • “I knew within a week of joining the bank that I’d made a terrible mistake, but 13 years later I’m still here… bitter, unproductive, unfulfilled, under-utilized and unhappy. I worry it’s too late for me, that I’ve wasted my life.”
  • “I’ve always had a job and for the last 20 years my job has been my identity. I’m not a person, I’m an accountant.”
  • “After 10 years of working in jobs I’ve just sort of ‘fallen into,’ I’ve decided to work on choosing a career rather than having it choose me. I’ve always had a wide range of interests and focusing on them has always been very difficult for me.”
  • “I’m in a very good job and am on track to be really successful in my field at a fairly young age. But I’m afraid I’ll get stuck here and wake up in another 10 years wondering why I wasted so many years doing something that didn’t mean a lot to me.”
  • “What’s holding me back is that I’m successful in my current job. I make a good income and am very good at what I do. So leaving that behind is difficult for me. I understand my current job – what’s expected, what I need to do day-to-day, how to navigate the organization to solve problems, etc. My job also provides me significant financial security through comprehensive benefits and a competitive pay package.”
