Helping clients energize their careers or their teams by showing them how they work best.
You desire a career that energizes you. You want to do your best every day and be challenged by the work you do. You are either a top performer looking to up your game or someone who isn’t sure what path to take. You may be a manager of top-performing team or one that hasn’t quite gelled. No matter where you fall, I can help you explore what sets you or your team apart.
As an innovative career coach I can help you discover what makes you different from everyone else. I help you understand what skills you have so you can excel in your current career or confidently make decisions about what your career path should be. I help you understand what skills you (or your team) have so you can excel in your current career or confidently make decisions about what your career path should be.
Together, we focus on what you are doing right, instead of what you are doing wrong. I give you the tools to figure out your natural abilities and recognize when you are using them. I show you how to describe your talents to those you work with and how to consistently apply them toward a goal.
I know what it’s like to be amazing at your job and still feel like you’re not doing the work you love. For more than 20 years, I worked for a high-tech company managing people, projects, websites and events. I built my career year-by-year, taking on new challenges, learning new skills and continually asking my boss what’s next?
Then, a few years ago, during a team building event I was introduced to the Gallup Strengths Methodology. And I discovered my superpowers.
After being certified, I began to mentor those who worked for me in a new way. I probed about what they liked to do - about what sets them on fire. I assigned them to projects that would highlight their strengths and encouraged them to tackle day-to-day assignments in a style that fit them, not the structure that had been developed.
I watched them soar. I watched them move through confusion about what they’d been told they do well to enlightenment about what they innately knew how to do. I saw them grow confident in applying their strengths and realize their own career paths.
Soon, I began to mentor family and friends in the same way. Again, and again, I saw people move from confusion to understanding. I saw light bulb after light bulb turn on. I saw sparks of happiness and energy where before there was complacency. And I loved it!
At the end of 2016, I left my corporate position to start my own career coaching business. I get to use my superpowers of relationship building, influencing and strategic thinking to show people that finding a career they love is possible.
I am so inspired to work with people every day who just want to be better. They want to take their career to the next level or have clarity around decisions regarding their career. I give them the tools I was given, guide them to their a-ha moment and then watch them soar.
