Coach the Coach: An Opportunity to Join Susan Whitcomb’s Thought Leader SessionsPublished: August 19, 2013
Wow! We’re definitely having you back! You give networking the concreteness that too often eludes the other “experts”.Dean Vera, Assistant Dean, Rutgers Business School, New Jersey
If you don’t already know who Susan Whitcomb is, I highly recommend you find out fast (http://www.theacademies.com). She is the de facto leader of the job coach training industry, with over 25 years of experience and having been a pioneer in this area. Strong and entrepreneurial as she runs her business, yet warm and caring with everyone she meets, she is truly a master of her trade.
Susan and I met at the MBACSC conference (now known as the MBACSEA), where she attended my presentation. We got to know each other better in the weeks after and she asked to feature me on her free monthly “though leader series” – learn more here.
With a global audience on the line, Susan and I interplayed as we discussed the foundation of The Rockstar Approach, the Relationship Hierarchy – a framework for building personal connections with influential individuals. We also discussed how to motivate students and clients who are job-seekers to go out there and really do their best, especially if they are more introvertive or are international candidates who tend to shy away from networking. We spent a good deal of time discussing how to focus students or clients to choose specific industries, companies, functions, and roles.

Being a career coach in addition to an author and public speaker, it was great to share some of my learnings with other coaches… I hope to continue to be a part of Susan’s community so I can learn from other coaches as well.
