Discover and Create Meaningful Work

 

Ideally, we want our aspirations, values, passions, interests, personality, education and unique experiences to be aligned with our work lives. This alignment or congruence is experienced as "best fit", as personally authentic, more importantly it is the key to fulfillment and enriches our career path(s).

I help my clients discover, create and maintain resilient and meaningful work at any stage of life.

My approach is client specific respecting the diversity of skills, experiences and personal contexts of each individual. 

Single session, customized 3 session packages and 5 session - "a month of coaching" - options are available. Please see the individual session options for more information

Are you wanting…?

  • A career that has personal meaning and purpose

  • A sense that you are making a contribution in and through your work
  • To be connected to your job and your professional community – to collaborate with co-workers, to be mentored
  • To feel passionate about your work
  • To feel more alive and engaged in your work and your life
  • To create a better balance with work and life

  • To develop and maintain greater awareness, presence and perspective in your day to day life
  • To experience a congruence between who you are and what you do – to be engaged in work that aligns with your personal values

My work with clients includes: conversation, support, perspective, customized reflective exercises and collaborative strategies

  • I guide my clients to reflect on and personally define what meaningful and fulfilling work/career might look and feel like.
  • I support my clients with practical suggestions to keep their energy, enthusiasm and creativity active during periods of difficult career transition, career development and/or stress and burnout.
  • I offer my clients different perspectives while upholding and respecting their unique way of being.
  • I encourage my clients in the practice of being more “present” in their daily lives. The practice of being “present” in our daily lives is especially important during periods of transition and change.
  • I work closely with my clients to identify what they value most and then integrate these values into their daily lives: “living our values”.
  • I provide customized reflective exercises that help my clients to identify their unique “experiential expertise” from their accumulated experiences. This process helps clients to: discover innate or personal skills and capacities from their varied experiences; to connect their accumulated experiences and create a more substantive expertise; come to better understand “how” they work; and learn to leverage this more personal expertise (this valuable offering).
  • I help my clients gain a greater understanding of their attitudes, decisions and choices. This leads to the discovery of personal resilience(s) and possibilities. My clients begin to see what choices they have. They become better at making decisions and taking appropriate actions that feel personally meaningful and authentic.
  • I assist my clients in aligning their aspirations, values, passions, interests, personality, education and unique experiences with what is realistic and accessible.
