You’ve already accomplished a lot in your career. You’re clear on what matters to you and you’re no stranger to hard work. You crave a good challenge, especially when you’re engaged in something you believe in.  

But lately you feel stuck. You know you’re not living up to your potential. So many questions are swirling through your head.

 

“Shouldn’t I have this figured out by now?”

“Is it too late to make a career change?”

“What am I even qualified for anyway?”

 

It feels like you’re in the middle of an identity crisis. You know what you don’t want, but pinpointing exactly what would make you come alive…that’s not so easy.

There have been a few times when you feel like you’ve been onto something, but when you sat down to take action, you just found yourself drawing a blank on where to even begin. So now you avoid doing anything altogether.

You spend your weekdays waiting for the weekend and your weekends dreading the week ahead. You’ve logged hours on job boards and have read article after article promising to help you land your dream job, but so far nothing’s come of it.

You long to feel like you could:

-       show up at work without having to pretend to be someone you’re not.

-       be fairly compensated for work you enjoy that builds on your natural talents.

-       have the job you’re doing every day be aligned with your purpose and values.

You’re ready to make your next career move with purpose and intentionality. You long to follow that voice in your head and feeling in your gut about how you want to spend your days. You can’t wait to do more of what you’re really good at and care about what you’re working on.

It would feel so good to know exactly what direction you want to take next in your career. It’d be even better to be able to know the exact steps you need to take to get there. And being able to approach the opportunities you’ve been interested in with confidence...well that’d be icing on the cake.

Career coaching that’s personalized for you

It’s time to stop spinning your wheels and start moving towards the career you really want, even if that’s different from what you’ve done before. 

We’ll start by assessing where you’ve been and where you’re headed. Rather than rushing to the job boards, we’ll identify what’s really important to you in your career. We’ll explore where you’ve excelled and pinpoint the common elements in your previous positions.

Together we’ll narrow in on exactly what your ideal career looks and feels like. We’ll determine what you want more of and what you want less of in your future and what your priorities are.

After that we’ll create a customized plan to get you where you want to go. Our work together will go far past creating the perfect resume. I’ll help you articulate your strengths and point of view so that you can feel comfortable promoting yourself as the expert you are, both on paper and in person.

Throughout the program I’ll also serve as your accountability partner. You’ll no longer feel overwhelmed thinking about taking action because you’ll be getting personal guidance each step of the way.

We’ll finish by updating your personal brand to reflect how you want to be known as a professional. Your resume, LinkedIn profile, and portfolio materials will all tell a consistent, authentic story that’s aligned with the type of positions you’re craving.

When we’re done, you’ll be well on your way to a career that pays your worth, brings you joy, and fits your lifestyle.

THIS COACHING Program INCLUDES:

  • Career story questionnaire. As soon as you sign up, you’ll gain access to a powerful questionnaire that will kickstart our work together. No more wasting your precious time. You’ll be able to start making progress right away by taking stock of exactly how you got to where you are in your career and what it is that you want to change. This will set us up for our first coaching session, ready to dive in, rather than spending time rehashing your goals.

  • Private coaching. We’ll have 6 coaching sessions together - on the phone or Skype. This is where I put an end to the feeling of overwhelm you’ve been getting from reading article after article of general career advice. Everything we cover in our coaching sessions is 100% customized for you. 

    • On each call we’ll work through what’s been holding you back from success, how you can communicate your value as a professional, and how to build an effective personal brand that establishes you as an expert in your field. You’ll get invaluable nuggets of expert advice and actionable steps that you can take to start making change in your career right now.

    • You’ll also have easy access to call recordings so that you can go back at any time and review our conversations and your breakthrough moments.

  • Customized action steps between sessions. To keep the momentum rolling and encourage you to keep taking action, I’ll send you personalized homework assignments (fun, I promise!) that will build on the topics we discussed on our coaching calls.

  • Email support. You’ll never to have to go at this alone. I’ll be available to you to support you and answer any questions that come up along the way. When self-doubt creeps in or you’re not sure how to move forward, all you have to do is reach out and I’ll be there to help troubleshoot.

  • Individual review of your job search and branding materials. Coaching doesn’t end once you’ve realized what you’re good at and how you want to use those skills in your career. I’ll help you rebrand yourself in a way that attracts the type of employers and/or clients that you want to work with. This includes a personal review of all of your job search and online materials - from resume to LinkedIn. I’ll highlight ways you can leverage what you’ve already accomplished in your career to what you want to be doing next, so that there’s no question of whether or not you’re qualified for the job. The result will be a consistent, compelling professional image that you’re proud to share with others.

You don’t have to keep hoping for things to be different.

By the time our 8 weeks together are complete, you’ll feel more focused and optimistic than you have been in years. You’ll feel more confident in the direction you want to take in your career. And you’ll finally be excited to wake up each morning knowing you get to be paid for doing something you love.

If you’re ready to finally find work that brings you to life, I’d love to work with you!

+ Is career coaching a good fit for you?:

The individuals who are the best fit for this type of intensive coaching are interested in their next career move being strategic, well thought out, and in line with both their professional and personal goals. If you’re actively job searching, under a time crunch, or want someone to solely update your resume for you, I’m probably not your gal.

+ Why does it take 8 weeks?:

My process is not a quick fix, but it works. Jumping into the job search just to find something new doesn’t ensure career satisfaction.

A successful career change hinges on your ability to connect all of your past experiences and strengths with where you’re heading next. In order to do this, you must first understand exactly what ideal work looks like for you and be able to articulate how you’ve developed your unique professional expertise. Once you understand your story, your values, and your non-negotiables you’ll be able to pursue your goals more confidently and replicate this process in the future.

+ How will we work together?:

The majority of our work will be conducted online and on the phone. You’ll also have daily access to me through email for any questions that come up along the way.

We’ll hold our coaching sessions on the phone or through Skype so that they can be recorded and you can access them after each session concludes. In some circumstances – when geographically possible – we may be able to hold our live meetings in person. If this option is selected, it is not possible to record our sessions together.

+ What if I get hired before our 8 weeks are complete?:

What a great dilemma to have! If this happens, we’ll continue to refine your brand and can also spend time discussing negotiation tactics and developing a 90-day success plan for your new gig.

+ When can we start working together?:

I'm not currently taking on new clients, but please reach out if you'd like a recommendation on others you might wish to seek out in the field.
