GUAA Career Coaching Partnership Program

The Georgetown University Alumni Association is pleased to announce the launch of the Career Coaching Partnership Program.

If you are navigating a career transition, looking for new career opportunities, seeking growth in your current role or organization, or hoping to hone your leadership skills, you may consider engaging with a career or leadership coach. We offer a list of vetted coaches as a resource below.

All coaches partnering with GUAA are, at minimum, certified by the Georgetown University Institute for Transformational Leadership Leadership Coaching program (an accredited coach training program). The vast majority of the coaches are credentialed by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) at the Associate Certified Coach (ACC) level (minimum of 100 hours of coaching experience), or the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) level (minimum of 500 hours of coaching experience). The slate of coaches selected for this program offer a diverse array of pricing, expertise, and additional certifications and credentials. ALL coach partners offer a 10-25% discount on their services for Georgetown alumni as well as remote services via phone or video.

In order to find a coach that is right for you, we recommend exploring the areas of expertise, credentials and certifications, bios, and websites of the coaches fully.

Questions to ask potential coaches in order to make sure they are a good fit for your needs and style are:

  • How would you describe your coaching philosophy and style?
  • What should I expect from our work together?
  • What type of individuals do you work best with?
  • How many total sessions do you think would be beneficial for me?
  • Can you share some of your success stories (even if they are anonymized)?
