At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, job resignation rates plummeted to shocking levels. However, a year later, they have risen past pre-pandemic levels and reached new heights. The Great Resignation, also known as the Big Quit, is characterized by employees voluntarily leaving their jobs, mostly due to dissatisfaction, and switching career fields.
What the great resignation means for you as a life coach
During the Great Resignation, people have been quitting their jobs for a variety of reasons. One major reason is that they are reporting low job satisfaction and discontent in how companies have been handling wages despite the rising cost of living.
The COVID-19 pandemic has allowed workers to rethink their careers and long-term goals, and the move back to the office has prompted many people to seek new employment. Because these people do not always know what they want to do next, they may seek out the help of a life coach.
Especially for those who have been in the same career for five, ten, or even 15 years, hiring a life coach to navigate this new adventure is imperative. However, many people may not realize the benefit of a life coach. The best way to appeal to these potential clients is to offer sample sessions. Sample sessions are great because they can allow prospective clients to see what it is like to work with a life coach and show the benefits you can bring to them.
Resigning from a job is a life-changing moment, and right now, people are resigning from their jobs in record-breaking fashion. Many of them are electing to switch careers, and they may need a life coach to guide them through this change.
