College Instructor, Counselor, Career Coach and author Halimah Bellows, author of ‘Champion Your Career-Winning in the World of Work’, ‘Career Quest Cards: Coaching in a Box’, and Career Quest APP, announces new career review and assessment tools for job seekers. “This is the time of year that people are generally making assessments of their lives. In the process of review, the question of job satisfaction comes up high on the list. My assessment and review tools give job seekers the strategies needed to make informed choices” Bellows explains.
As a Career Coach/Counselor, Halimah is often asked to assist in goal setting. In the goal setting process there are elements that lead to success in meeting goals. Conversely, there are attitudes and beliefs that impair the success of meeting a goal. “What people need to think about as we enter a new year is that one should be setting goals for what they want, instead of trying to get out of something they don’t want. It is common for people to want to make these typical New Year’s Resolutions: lose weight, stop a habit, or get rid of stress. All of these resolutions are based on what a person does not want. And even the tools used to make these resolutions happen are negative. For instance people go on a diet to lose weight and can’t wait to ‘end the diet’. What I focus on and teach others through my APP, eBook, ‘Career Quest Cards, Coaching in a Box’ and soon to be released ‘Champion Your Career’ book, is that in order to meet a goal, turn to those things that you want to make happen that will give you a sense of accomplishment, skill building and joy. Those goals will be easier to achieve and much more sustainable.”
Halimah teaches her coaching clients to re-frame their life and career choices by choosing positive and life affirming goals that have realistic timeframes so discouragement doesn’t set in.
The Champion Your Career e-Book is now available at Amazon.
The author has also developed ‘Career Quest Cards, Career Coaching in a Box’. The boxed set offers skill building career prompts for young, middle aged and older adults, and can be ordered through Amazon. These cards are portable, practical, thought provoking and combine the best of current career search information. The boxed set contain 24 colorful cards with over 30 exercises, and are chock full of ways to open creativity, think outside the box, and make best possible career choices.
The Career Quest App is available now at Amazon. The App and eBook are also available at the google and Ibook stores.
