THIS week I’m introducing The Coaches Roundtable, in which a rotating panel of career coaches and advisers will answer reader questions. Career advice is a funny thing. Because advisers can give contrary advice, it can be helpful to collect ideas, try a few and see which ones work for you. At times, just the language can make the difference. My first coach told me that I shouldn’t expect to have a single-track career, and I finally felt free to figure out my new direction liberated from the idea of a traditional job.
