"Adrian Choo is an absolute Jerk! "
That's what a client said about me back in 2015.
She had been in Logistics for 12 years and wanted to make a career-switch into headhunting.
"It has always been my dream to be a headhunter." She shared, as she came to me for CareerAdvice.
I told her, "Thanks to LinkedIn, headhunting is a dying industry. Don't ruin your career. Moreover, having done this for a decade, I don't quite think you have the personality to make it."
She got upset at my advice and told all her friends that I had destroyed her dreams...and that I was a Bad Guy for doing that.
I bumped into her last weekend and she came up to apologise to me.
She is now a SVP of Logistics in an MNC and said that "frank, tough advice" was the Truth that she needed to hear...and that I was right.
So, if you want to hear cheery, Rainbow Unicorn Advice from a Career Coach, go find someone else.
