Career Coaching Opportunity: Appointments available to book

Over the past several months, several colleagues on campus participated in UBC's Coaching for Career Influencers Program.  As part of our ongoing development as learner coaches, we are required to engage in a minimum of 20 x 30-minute career coaching conversations.  These mutually beneficial one-to-one coaching conversations, exclusive to graduate students or postdoctoral fellows, offer you a safe and confidential space to explore a concern or challenge you are experiencing and to work with you towards defining actionable goals for yourself, all while helping us enhance our coaching skills.
