Resources to help you simplify career decisions and customize your work life
My calling is to help people build intentional careers and meaningful lives, and I believe that focused career support can help you get to where you truly want to go. Yet for many of us, this kind of 1:1 coaching work is inaccessible or unaffordable.
This is why I’m passionate about providing free (no strings attached) resources to help guide you through critical career assessments and job transitions.
With support and guidance, you have the ability to discover and achieve your unique ambitions. I know that self-directed coaching can be quite effective when you are properly informed, prepared, and committed.
You can learn more about me and my mission here or, if you’re ready, head over to Job Search, Career Planning or Work Reset to start your coaching journey. The workbooks found on these pages will help you dive deeper into the practical tasks and activities that most impact and shape your career.
Navigating the 6 Conflicts of Work
Sometimes the hardest part of pursuing meaningful work is overcoming the dilemmas that keep us stuck and unable to take the next best step toward the life we want. Many of us find ourselves stuck in one (or more) of these 6 conflicts.
Fear of playing it small and wasting your potential mixed with fear of pushing yourself beyond your capabilities
A desire to remain humble or learn from previous mistakes that warps into self-doubt and insecurity about your skills
Trying to build a rich and captivating work life without letting your profession become your identity or alter your priorities
Finding a way to make enough money to provide reasonable comfort and security without getting trapped in the wrong job
Deciding what it means to “be yourself” at work when that differs from the standards you see around you
Trying to define your gifts and passions but becoming confused and frustrated with the pursuit
My work is here to help you move through these points of frustration, so that you are better positioned to create and realize the work life you’ve dreamed about.
The Struggle is Real
If you see yourself listed above, welcome to the club. Everyone wrestles with these same questions and conflicts. We’re in this together.
Each workbook will guide you through the tactical and strategic work needed to launch a job search, make purposeful career goals, or continue to build a work life that fully utilizes your talents and inspires you. Through their exercises and reflection, you’ll be able to engage with and begin to overcome the six conflicts of work.
Intentions will prompt you to build in moments in your life for short, more frequent pauses to reflect on the questions that impact your career.
Books and podcasts will share additional resources to help you take on a deeper personal transformation to align your career with your values.
