Facilitating Career Developments (FCD)
A fully online course intended for professionals and paraprofessionals who provide career-related services in a variety of settings such as higher education, K-12 schools, government agencies, business and industry, private practice, and community-based organizations.
Completing the course enables individuals to work more effectively in any career-focused setting, incorporating career literacy and skills development in their work with students, adults, clients, employees, or the public.
Career Coaching: Fundamentals, Applications, and Future Directions is both compass and telescope. Heather’s expert lens, deep lessons from history, sharp awareness of client needs, honest assessment of program trends, and clarity about interventions are what I’ve searched for and now found! Translating solid literature, and a wide scan of futuristic tools and models, she’s created the most compact, easy-to-use roadmap about where career coaches are headed, what they can deliver, and how they can expand reach and impact. Far beyond the hype, her insights are priceless, and you’ll find the same.
