For 18 years, I was in a career that, for a good part, didn’t fit me well. While I was considered “strong” at my work, several of the cultures I found myself in were misaligned with my values, interests, and standards of integrity. In the last few of my corporate career, I was chronically ill and miserable. Why did I stay? Because I thought I was stuck with no way out, and I thought the problems I faced were my fault.
But after a brutal layoff in the days following 9/11, my wake-up call arrived. I decided in one flash of a moment that I would NEVER allow myself to feel this way again – undervalued, exhausted, longing for work-life balance, disconnected to what I was doing – in short, selling my soul. I decided that if others could find enriching work that was self-sustaining and rewarding, why couldn’t I?
So I reinvented my career – I earned a masters degree in marriage and family therapy, became a therapist and a career coach, conducted national research on women overcoming professional crisis, wrote a book, and founded a women’s career coaching and executive consulting business.
I worked very hard but it was worth it. The outcome – I’m now supremely fulfilled in my work, and feel grateful and excited to be doing what I’m doing. I now know what it feels like to be one of the fortunate ones to love what they do professionally, and who they do it with – in charge of my life.
But I’ve been where you are now…
I once struggled with the same challenges you are facing – feeling like a fulfilling and successful career was out of reach. That’s why I’m excited to share my strategic career development insights with you.
In this teleclass I will share:
- The top six reasons people want out of their jobs
- The 12 “hidden” crises that 9 out of 10 working women face today
- How to determine if it’s time to change your job and career
- What abundantly successful professionals do and think that makes them different
- What five steps you can take today to create a more fulfilling and successful next chapter in your career
You’ll learn the 5 Core Steps to Achieving Successful Career Transition, including:
- Get Clear – understand what’s involved in career transition, and gain clarity on what you truly want (and if you’re ready and committed to doing what it takes).
- Power Up – Learn new ways to reconnect to your confidence and power as it relates to your professional capabilities
- Explore the Options – Understand your priorities, needs and values, and research/evaluate the work and career options available
- Update Your Professional Persona –Refresh your skills, refine your professional profile, and prepare to put yourself out there in a new way
- Network and Market Yourself Effectively –Tap into and expand your network, and “market” yourself and your talents with authenticity, power, and integrity
