It's been one of those days..... I have an HR background/masters and am working on my coaching certification. I have to coach for 100 hours to qualify for my Level 1 certification and I had a client tell me today that she won't be able to continue coaching with me after only 5 weeks. I was really counting on her hours and now I'm stuck searching for one or two new people to coach with in order to finish on time. I really didn't need this right now- I was moving along so well, and now I feel like I'm back at square one, since my slate was full for May-August. I was so shocked when I read her e-mail, I didn't know what to think. I have 52 hours and would have been in great shape for September, when the certification exam application period opens. I also can't track down another person I was supposed to start with on Thursday, so with those two gaps, I just want to hide under the covers and disappear for awhile. I already started contacting everyone I know to see if there are any leads/people who need coaching. Worst case scenario, I slowly earn hours and eventually qualify, but I am really annoyed!!
