When I started this practice in 2013 I focused on mechanics and deliverables; meaning that I specialized in helping career changers and job seekers with specific products: a new resume, LinkedIn profile, professional branding, mock interviews & feedback, and a very strategic and tactical job search plan. The work focused on actions in response to change. My background in HR and hiring management supported this approach.
What I didn’t expect was the quest for personal transformation many of my clients were on.
Many were reeling from major life changes – divorce, empty nest, relocation. Some clients were restless and knew something bigger was on the horizon but couldn’t put their finger on what that thing was. Some were anxious or hopeless about what was next for them.
Restlessness = when our wanting, our being, and our doing aren’t aligned.
What my clients validated over the years is that we desperately want to be ourselves. In work. In life. In general. The kind of genuine, out-loud authenticity that often requires jumping off a cliff into the deep waters of self-awareness and then wringing ourselves out (multiple times) to find.
So, my work evolved, as I did, and expanded into the depths of transformational coaching for life transitions of all kinds. My work today is a co-creative process with clients to bring the wanting, being and doing into alignment while navigating the disorienting space between endings and new beginnings (the “Neutral Zone” as William Bridges calls it) of life’s many transitions.
Living your genuine is a process of becoming who you will be on the other side of whatever transition you are in.
I would be honored to be your partner.
