Career Coaching means partnering in a thought provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential. Coaches help clients focus and make strides towards what they seek to achieve. Even if a client is unsure of his or her goals, a coach will work closely to assist him/her in determining where he/she would like to go and to develop a plan for achieving those goals.
Coaching gets a client farther, faster and more strategically to the goal/success than working alone. 


There are four linked and reciprocal coaching components:

  1. Setting the stage.  The coaching process is based on trust, rapport and coach-client chemistry.
  2. Explore and construct deep picture of present needs and wants.
  3. Review, assess and understand data regarding what works and what does not work. 
  4. Utilize coaching discoveries of self-awareness and create a strategic plan of action.


Our free introductory coaching session is designed to provide exposure to our process and the benefits of coaching. Please plan on 30 minutes. We will explore your interests, objectives and wants. You will have the opportunity to decide when you would like to start coaching and what additional information I can provide. We will discuss and determine whether there is an effective match between our coaching methods and your needs.

How A Forced Career Transition Can Take You To The Next Level

Pavel Krapivin

Forbes Contributor

CareersI write about the intersection of work and happiness.

We are supposedly living in the age of a 100-year life, where most of us will be having multiple careers, and therefore undergoing numerous transitions from career to career, or from career to school and back again. Being able to make these transitions smoothly is likely to be key to our happiness and well-being.

A recent study from the University of Hamburg explored these kinds of transitions to try and understand just what it is that makes them so challenging. They hypothesize that the key to a successful transition is to obtain closure in one period before you transition to the next. If we feel that we have done all we can and have completed the goals we had set ourselves, then moving on to pastures new can be relatively easy, but if there are lots of loose ends that remain un-tied, we tend to move on with a series of regrets instead.

Six Resume Mistakes to Avoid

The million dollar question is this: can your resume get through automated and HR screeners so that you will get the all-important phone call to set up an interview. And is that call for a great job? At the right level and for a good salary? When you are over 50, you need to start worrying about these things.In a study using 40,000 fake resumes, the results showed compelling evidence that there is definitely age discrimination in hiring. https://www.forbes.com/sites/robinryan/2019/01/24/baby-boomers-six-resume-mistakes-to-avoid/#13e836766179
