As a Life Coach, specializing in Career Optimization and Career Transitions Coaching my goals are:
  • to help you uncover your true potential
  • to work closely with you on building and realizing customized solutions for your career goals  and challenges
  • to help you to stay on track in getting to where you want to be professionally

I'm your Career Management Mechanic, looking under the 'hood', assessing (at your side) the rich potential inside of you, helping you to unlock your true capabilities, guiding you through to a clear view of what you can achieve. As your mechanic, I can give your career a 'tune-up', helping you change out old ways of thinking that are obsolete, counterproductive and slowing you down. We may need to change out a 'cracked windshield' that could be obstructing your view and clouding your ability to navigate to the right destination. Your career 'tires' may need re-treading or replacement so that you can grip the road to your goal better. Let's get to the heart of that 'rattle under the hood' to figure out what exactly is broken or loose so we can fix it and put you back on the road as the high performance professional you really are.

Why work with me?

As a Coach, I give you the 4 things you need to succeed:

  1. Clarity
  2. Hope
  3. Confidence
  4. A Career Change Plan

In a world of rapid, and sometimes traumatic change, you need a clear vision of who you are, what you want and how to get there. Clarity on these things is the ingredient you most need to succeed. You will discover the Hope
you need to achieve remarkable results in the face of challenging and traumatic times. Our work together will give you the Confidence to make the changes you need to, to match the rich and complex person that you are with the right opportunities, or to make those tough decisions and plans that are key to your success.

We don't just talk and forget what we talked about. It's not about having you leaving our conversations with a 'good feeling'. Together, we build a Career Change Plan with SMART targets in it (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Reasonable, and Time Stamped). And I keep you on track with implementing your plan.

Let me unleash the potential in you.
