Some people seek career coaching because they're stuck in a dead-end job that brings no meaning or purpose. Others are challenged by the demands of balancing their work lives with their personal lives. Some clients know exactly what they want to do with their lives, and need help finding and executing a plan to get there, while others have languished without a clear calling in life.
