1-1 coaching

Your resume is a snapshot of what you've done so far (and I know, it's impressive)....but you're still wondering what else is out there. You want to get to your next level on your terms. Using your strengths, your current interests, and making a positive impact. Trouble is, you're not sure what exactly that is. You want to love your work, use your zone of genius, be a stand out leader, all without working 50+ hours a week. Sound too good to be true? It's not.

what you need is to stop doing what you think you should...

You can know what you want, make a bigger impact, and love your work without overworking

a confident leader at any level

your next role created for you

certainty in your next move

doubting yourself and overthinking

scrolling linkedin and indeed

Burnt out, stuck & unmotivated
