Frequently Asked Questions
What is the NOW WHAT® program?
Since its introduction in the career coaching world, her program has helped thousands of people make changes in their work to achieve their goals and live a happier and more fulfilling life.
Can’t I just read the book?
Why do I need a coach?
However, having someone who is on your team, pushing you further than you’d go on your own and holding you accountable every step of the way greatly increases your chances of success.
How can I determine if coaching is right for me?
A coach can save you countless hours trying to make those changes on your own. And the faster you get on the right path, the sooner your life situation will improve
What specifically does the program involve?
Be advised, the program is no I-Dream-of-Jeannie solution. Unfortunately, you can’t cross your arms, blink your eyes, and hope to fix everything that’s not right in your life. Instead, we’ll work together to peel back the layers, like an onion, to eventually arrive at your most important beliefs and dreams and then devise a strategy for putting words into action.
How can the success of the program be measured?
You’ll have a clear vision for your future and a positive outlook that comes through in all you do. You’ll be moving forward in your career, whether that means seeking a new job, opening your own business, or exploring an entirely different direction. You’ll feel excited about the many possibilities you now see. The program is truly life-changing, in a good way.
Why should I choose you, Steve Borek, as my career coach?
I decided to help others make the same journey toward happiness. I went to coach training at Coach University, one of the top accredited coaching schools in the world and eventually became a faculty leader for the school.
I got certified as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), then Master Certified Coach (MCC), Board Certified Coach (BCC), and Coach University Certified Graduate (CUCG), and proudly added those credentials to my B.S. in Accounting and Finance and my MBA in International Business.
Today, I love helping others. With the right coaching and some hard work, you can dramatically change your life for the better. I did. You can too!
Where are you based and does it matter if I don’t live in your area?
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for coaching?
- I’m not happy in my current work situation.
- I feel like I’m not reaching my potential.
- I’m open to new ideas and direction from others.
- I’m willing to step out of my comfort zone.
- I’m committed to doing whatever it takes to reach my goals.
If those descriptions accurately characterize you, coaching could help you achieve the career and lifestyle of your dreams.
I feel hopeless. I’ve felt this way for years. Nothing ever seems to change. Why should I think it will now?
Maybe I should just start sending out resumes. Do I really need coaching for that?
What does work is doing some self-discovery and choosing a single, specific direction to achieve your goals. You go after exactly what you want. Instead of spray-and-pray, you focus on one-and-done!
The NOW WHAT program is 12 weeks. What if that’s more of a commitment than I’m willing to make? Do you offer any other options?
I offer a 6-week “Becoming Extraordinary” program that gets you started on the right path. By the end of that program, you can either continue on your own or purchase another 6 weeks to complete the full NOW WHAT program.
I also offer single one-hour coaching appointments if you prefer to pay a la carte, but I hesitate to recommend that option because the most significant changes only take place over time and after completing substantial work.
Okay, I’m interested in working with you, Steve. I’m ready to make some changes in my life. What’s the next step?
