HOW IT WORKS:
Career Transition Coaching begins with an examination of your values and goals in order to clarify a vision of long-term success. We then broaden the inventory of critical career factors by assessing of your strengths, skills, interests, preferences, personal resources, and knowledge and development gaps.
We work together to identify and evaluate career-related options, opportunities, and potential outcomes, allowing you to choose and engage in concrete action steps towards your career goals. Subsequent coaching typically focuses on maintaining momentum and accountability, as unforeseen challenges and insights inevitably impact ongoing progress and direction.

Life Changing is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about John. At a time when I felt my career prospects were few and far between, I enlisted Johns services as a career coach. In working with John, I discovered the sky (and beyond) was the actual limit regarding what I could accomplish. John possesses the natural talents of both a Career Coach and Mentor. John creates this safe space where you find the answers to your questions all on your own - he is a conduit to self-reflection and personal growth. Often our sessions were, me wondering how he was consistently able to get me to find the solutions to my own career obstacles. Through weekly sessions complete with self-reflection exercises and homework, I have been able to realize my own potential and abilities to create a brand that best represents my authentic self. John would be a true asset to any individual or organization in need of accelerating development and/or expanding opportunities, and comes with my heartfelt recommendation.M.D.
John Bowman is an outstanding, one of a kind coach! He genuinely cared about helping me find focus, clarity and confidence. Through focused, thoughtful questions John helped me unravel the stories I was telling myself about what is and isnt possible being over fifty years old. The results: I am pursuing a career in HR management and Ive reconnected with friends and family, finding support systems I didnt believe I had! I am so grateful to John for this amazing invaluable experience!Susan Szarka
John helped me at a time when I needed someone most. He helped me create a plan that took me from being broke and lacking direction to being a goal-oriented, motivated, successful entrepreneur. If it wasn't for John I don't know where I'd be. He is caring and gifted at helping facilitate growth.Brendan Pereira
