Helping Unemployed Find More Than New Jobs

Chris and Carol Green with Jack

Pennsylvania, USA ----Community Life Coaches Chris and Carol Green, have been hosting monthly workshops in the Pennsylvania Career Link’s Job Club, a state-run program offered to assist the unemployed and under employed. Invited in by the program’s Job Recruiter, these Urban Community Ambassadors were provided the privilege of hearing several successes stories at the conclusion of their latest presentation.

One particularly outstanding testimonial came from Jack who was one of many who attended the Job Club programs for more than six months and is now declaring successful employment. Jack was full of gratitude and praise for the input of the Life Coaching, which led to not only improving his interviewing skills, but a new outlook on life.

"I just had to thank you for providing your services to us at CareerLink-Harrisburg,” Jack shared with Chris and Carol Green.

“What you both have said and providing your time to speak at our Job Club Classes has been well appreciated by myself and others in Job Club. I went from feeling disparity and anger about losing/separating from my employer of 14 years, to having hope and faith for a chance at a better future in what lays ahead.”

The Green’s monthly workshop is driven by the principles of the Golden Rule, ‘Treat others the way you want to be treated.’ The presentations are rooted in the foundation that people are created in the image of God and the world needs the contribution of every life. These Life Coaches give their attendees tools and practical wisdom, which instills a greater understanding of oneself; resulting in better performances during job interviews.

“I (and others) truly value what you have spoken about through your personality assessments and relating your family's personal struggles, with what we in Job Club are/were going through,” Jack continued to expound.

“The way you relate to people is non-judgmental; critiquing without criticizing. If you offer your other services in the same caring manor,  I know people will come out feeling uplifted rather than downtrodden. I know I certainly have."

As the world's leading producers of CARE-Ready Life Coaches™, Chris and Carol Green teach and train community, government and education leaders, human service organizers, business visionaries, and neighborhood dreamers how to be much more effective by embracing the principles of CARE (Compassionate Accountability with Respect and Empathy) in their professional and personal lives. They LISTEN to people, LIFT people and LAUNCH people. Then they equip and empower them to do the same for others.

Many coaching, mentoring and community outreach programs employ what is known as a "deficit model" of working with people. That's where you focus on the problems (deficits) of a person, and then apply a set of pre-determined, cookie cutter steps and treatments to address their issues. The deficit-based model is what many well-meaning Helpers use, but it rarely works long-term, leaving Helpers wondering why their clients fail to break the cycles of addiction and recidivism.

However, CARE-Ready Life Coaching™ mirrors the principles found in the proven, Best Practice strategies of Strength-based, Solution-focused models. CARE-Ready life coaches are trained to connect with people in order to build a relationship/ partnership that empowers the client; thus allowing the client to discover the solutions that will work best for them.

Also, while many coaching programs focus on how to target potential high-paying affluent clients, and high-paying speaking opportunities, the Greens train, equip and empower Care-Ready Providers and Coaches™, who are willing to take on the most often overlooked people of society; those who live in under-served communities, who can least afford, but benefit the most from professional guidance.
