What if you could jump-start your career development? And have the tools to iteratively build along the way?
- Do you know how to translate your academic work into a job?
- Do you know the difference between a CV, a résumé, and a LinkedIn profile? And how to message across each?
- Did you know that budget and team management matters if you want to be promoted into a management role?
A lot of my executive clients didn’t know these things at the beginnings of their careers. They just happened to stumble in the right direction.
For years, I’ve worked with people who are already in management roles—from early promotions to 25-year management careers that create six- to eight-figure incomes.
Here are some examples:
- In 1999, I began working with a marketing manager who has come back every 2-3 years and asked me to take him back to square one … to find out who he has become … to challenge his assumptions. Today, he’s president of a multibillion-dollar business unit.
- In 2009, a client who’d earned his PhD from the University of California in 1997 said this about our work together: “I wish I’d know these things when I was heading into the work world. I’d have saved a lot of grief, and known what to focus on as my career progressed.”
- In 2014, I began working with the University of California Humanities Research Institute, helping recent and soon-to-be masters and doctoral students shape the next steps in their careers. Participants who worked through the full learning and coaching process saw serious spikes in their job search effectiveness. Jobs were secured in ways that previously felt blunted, and I like to think we paved the way for what will eventually become fulfilling careers.
