There are many obstacles in engineering career development that engineers face on a daily basis. Inadequate soft skills and leadership training, poor communication skills (especially when speaking with non-technical professionals), fear of networking and building relationships, stress associated with project deadlines, and the inability to effectively delegate due to their problem solving mentality.
Our founder, engineering career coach Anthony Fasano, P.E., provides one-on-one executive coaching services to engineering professionals to help them boost their engineering career development. In addition to his engineering credentials, Anthony received his Associate Certified Coach certificate from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching.
What is executive coaching? Executive coaching is a process in which a trained professional helps bring out the very best in a client, whether the client is an individual, business, team or organization. Coaching is an action-oriented process with a focus on the client’s current situation as well as their short- and long-term goals. Through the process of coaching, clients improve their performance and enhance their quality of life. One-on-one coaching typically consists of 3 to 4 phone calls with your coach per month and is a strictly confidential relationship.
Engineers typically seek executive coaching for the following reasons related to their engineering career development:
• Advance their engineering career more rapidly
• Assistance with the transition from design engineer to manager
• Soft skills training for engineers (i.e. communication, public speaking, networking)
• Leadership development
• Assistance in becoming a better delegator
• Engineering career advice on various topics including what engineering graduate degree or other credentials to obtain, where to find a mentor, etc.
• Defining what a successful engineering career is to them
• Career goal setting
