Making a career transition is hard and can be stressful. Together, we will create a strategy, your narrative and the momentum necessary to land a career that moves you toward your goals. Grounded in your values and informed by your experience, we’ll leverage your skills to create opportunity for you and value for your employer.
Here is some of what we’ll do together:
- Skills positioning
- Strategic narrative development
- Building your tools-resume and LinkedIn
- Networking strategies that get results
- Interviewing techniques that go beyond roles and responsibilities
- Compensation negotiations
- First 90-days planning
- Ongoing executive coaching
What does a career transition engagement look like?
You’ll work directly with me, not an associate. As every relationship is unique, together we will figure out your priorities and create a set of expectations.
We’ll have 90-minute weekly or bi-weekly meetings, either in person or virtually. In our first meeting, we’ll set the expectations for our engagement.
Within 24 hours of each meeting, you’ll get a complete set of notes from the session with my thoughts, recommendations and next steps. These become the basis for our next meeting.
In between meetings, you’ll have an assignment that prompts you to think deeply about your value and skills. These assignments create the momentum that keeps your career goals at the forefront of your thinking.
How long does career transition work usually take?
Typically, we’ll work on a monthly basis for 1-2 months to develop your core positioning/narrative development, build the tools you’ll need and create a networking and interviewing strategy that gets results.
As you move into the active networking, interviewing and compensation negotiation phases, we’ll shift to an hourly basis to maintain accountability, assess progress and reset strategy in real time. Once you’ve accepted a position, we’ll develop your plan for your first 90-days.
Who do you work with?
I’ve worked with people in just about every sector, from attorneys to finance to healthcare to documentary filmmakers to designers to nonprofit executives, through every stage of their career.
Many clients are currently employed and looking to move to a different company or transition to a new career path. For others who have been laid off or downsized, we use this in-between time as an opportunity to reset and explore new career options.
Still others have had a fulfilling first career and want to find their “Career 2.0”.
Whatever your circumstance, I can help you move from where you are now to what’s next.
What if I’m happy in my job, but facing a challenge with a boss or colleague?
Call me! We’ll set up time to identify the challenge, create an actionable plan and overcome the obstacles. There is more information on the Executive Coaching page.
