career coaching to put you ahead of the curve
"Meg (my career coach) helped me define what is most important to seek opportunities that fit best into my value system. She doesn't do the work for you. She will push, prod or coax you into taking the time to reach your own decisions. Meg cares about her client's success." – Chris Duffy, Connecticut

Career Coaching for Lifelong Career Management

Abilities Enhanced® Clients want more from their careers. They seek career coaching for various reasons like how to:
Rise to authentic leadership roles.
Master radical career changes.
Achieve successful career transitions.
Explore entrepreneurial dreams.

Career Coaching helps you create your own job security with lifelong career management strategies. Who uses career coaching? No client is typical. Everyone is unique. Many learn to manage radical career change. Others start their own businesses, overcome long term unemployment, or move up career ladders. My clients achieve amazing results!

See a list of Abilities Enhanced® career coaching successes. You can be next!

My name is Meg Montford, the first Career Coach Institute graduate to earn the credential of Master Certified Career Coach. My mantra is: “Believe in yourself and everything is possible!” While most of my clients are Sales and Marketing Executives, I partner with others, too, who face the challenge of career changes and career management. We determine our potential "fit" to work together during your free Career Evaluation.

I gladly supply references. A graduate of both Career Coach Institute and Corporate Coach University with 300 clock hours in coach training, I have acquired over 1400 clock hours of coaching experience with clients. I know first hand what career change is like having “fallen” into a 12-year career in college financial aid administration that I left in 1986 to start anew in the career management field. Learn more about my experience and credentials.

Are you ready to achieve your dreams? You can — with individual or group career coaching. Are you coachable? Do a self-assessment. See if career coaching is right for you, then choose your career coaching program today!

What is Career Coaching?

Career Coaching connects you with a personal career trainer dedicated to your career success. As your Career Coach, I focus on you while you focus on yourself. I listen intently to what you say and offer feedback and ideas to help you manage career change. I always tell you the truth and protect the confidentiality of our coaching interactions. Through "you-centered" career coaching, I help you clarify what is most important so you can create an action plan for your career path. I do not practice counseling or therapy, and I won't act as your best friend. What I will do is support your journey of self-discovery and honor your commitment to reach your goals. I will challenge you to do your best and always there for you.

What barriers get in your way of the satisfying and rewarding career you want? We work together on choosing your career and setting your goals. I partner with you to identify how to achieve career success, whether you want to move up the career ladder, move on to another opportunity, or move back into the workforce.

Career tools can help assess your values, skills, and interests. However, not everyone needs assessments to move forward when they experience the coaching process. Would you like to "try on" career coaching to see how it "fits" your needs? Request a free Career Evaluation. Take the first step to achieve the changes you want in your career. See for yourself how career coaching can work! Find out how you can work your passion!
