Or you can drive.


Create the Work You Love and Make A Difference in the World!

 2018 Career Navigation Program 

for Professionals in Transition and New Entrepreneurs



When it comes to your career, you have two choices. You can go along for the ride. Or you can drive.

Look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself, “What do I want to do every day for the rest of my life?” Do that.

Let’s face it.  The whole world is in transition and it’s up to each and every one of us to choose our destiny in this time of great uncertainty.

Partnering with a professional coach is one of the best gifts you can give yourself in these times of great change.

Are you in transition? Are you ready to reinvent yourself?

Are you considering starting or growing your own business?

Is it time for an inner economy tune-up?

Do you need a grounding chord, a compass, or a new lens?

 “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; Ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go do that. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive.”  – Harold Whitman

CAREER COACHING:  Sample of topics covered.

Session One: Where to go from Here?

We will start with an assessment of where you’ve been, where you are, and the new frontiers you’re exploring.  Are you employed, underemployed, unemployed, or ready to  start your own business? We will look at economic projections, salary guidelines,  specialist vs. generalists,  future trends , emerging industries in the New Economy.  We will explore the answers to these potent questions: What lights you up?  What Makes You Come Alive?  What’s your personal mission/vision?  What do you stand for? What would you do if you knew you would succeed?




Session Two: The Art of Personal Branding

Who you are, what you offer, to whom, How and Why? Skills & Strengths Assessment.What problems do you solve? How do you describe yourself? How do colleagues describe you? Best Practices from the Reach Branding System.


Session Three: Cultivating Your Inner Economy

I will share an overview of Powerful Inner Tools and Practical Daily Practices that I have synthesized and used over the last 30 years for Navigating Transition, Overcoming Fear, Healing Loss and Grief, Releasing Limiting Beliefs, and Expanding Prosperity Consciousness. A good place to start is here

Session Four: Crafting Winning Resumes

We will address the many myths about what to include and not to include in your resume.  What to include in your Profile Summary. How to handle gaps. How to Use Keywords. How to overcome perceived ageism. How to overcome perceived lack of experience (recent grads).  What to do if you are changing industries or careers.  Leveraging a hybrid career Determining the best format: Chronological, Functional,  Portfolio, or Powerpoint Graphic

 Session Five: Cover Letters

Yes, you need a cover letter. Not only do you need a cover letter, but one that creates a connection, arouses curiosity, and has a balance of persuasive business writing and your unique value proposition.  By the end of this session, you will have an award-winning formula, template, phrases, and the writing secrets I only share with private coaching clients to create a fresh, compelling, and inviting cover letter.

Session Six: Time Management & Productivity


Tapping into the Hidden Job Market Creating a strategic plan with daily, weekly, and monthly goal setting and accountability systems.


Session Seven: Stellar Interview Coaching

I will provide you with over 200 Practice Questions (Behavioral, Situational). This is a revealing, challenging, skill development session weaving techniques from Talent Management Experts,  NLP and other Communication Coaching Systems.  Role Play and Feedback provided. Think of this as learning a new language. Most effective using  Skype.



Session Eight: Networking 

 It’s not about who you know as it is about who knows you.  Your network  is your net worth. Have you ever experienced  the  Six Degrees of Separation theory- that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries? In the 1950’s , it was proven mathematically. Yes, it is a small world after all. In this session, we will delve into  three key areas: Your Linked In Profile, Moving beyond e-mail by Picking up the Phone, and How To Work a Room at professional business mixers of all sizes.

 Session Nine: Using Linked In & Social Media

The focus on this session will be your on-line presence, particularly your LinkedIn Profile and connecting with recruiters using both Linked In & Twitter. We will also examine setting up a blog platform, e-zine development and article marketing as powerful marketing tools that differentiates you and positions you as the Expert.


Session Ten: Action Plan-Showing Up 100%

If you have played at 100%, you most likely will be well on your way to your a dream job by Session Ten, and at the very least, well on your way to  solid leads and scheduled interviews. In this final session of the Igniting the Spark™. Career Coaching Program, we will create a 60-day action plan incorporating what we have covered throughout the program

“It’s over. No more vertical. No more ladder. That’s not the way careers work anymore. Linearity is out. A career is now a checkerboard. Or even a maze. It’s full of moves that go sideways, forward, slide on the diagonal, and even go backward when that makes sense (it often does.) A career is a portfolio of projects that teach you new skills, gain you new expertise, develop new capabilities, grow your colleague set, and constantly reinvent you as a brand.” ~Tom Peters
