Coming Out on Coaching: Choose a Supportive Coach
User Rating: / 0

You’re stuck in a dead-end job. You want to figure out your next career move. Because you’re gay, it’s important to make a wise decision. You don’t want to end up in a hostile work environment that that doesn’t support diversity.

Coaching can make major transformations possible. But you must do your homework. Not all coaches are accepting of the GLBT community.
