Why developers need career coaching

Want to improve your leadership, performance, communication skills & relationships? Here’s why you need a coach.

Coaching can take different forms: from informal coaching, like a coffee chat with experienced peers, to semi-formal mentoring in a team/organization, to formally hiring a consultant.

Develop your soft skills

“In general, people from the technology sector tend to focus on hard skills but are not as focused on the soft skills currently in high demand. Once an employer has figured out they have the hard-techy skills, what will make them stand out beyond that?” says Olivia Krauth in Tech Republic.

Get guidance on your career path

“A tech career coach can help you figure out how you can get from working on small projects to large projects. They can assist you in planning which types of companies to work at in order to work on large-scale projects. If you are a freelancer, career coaching can help you design a plan to turn small opportunities into larger ones.” — NeverFriday.
