Unlocking your true potential

We all have blind spots in our self-analysis, and we’re often unable to identify and overcome them by ourselves.  Through our assessment tools and step-by-step coaching, you’ll be able to reveal and examine obstacles that may be holding you back – in privacy.  It’s a process of discovery to unlock your true potential and advance your career as a leader.

Develop YOUR agenda, not what others expect of you

We have researched, used and lectured on the best practices in leadership development. With these practices and our assessments, we’ll evaluate your thinking style, behavioral traits, interests, motivations, and leadership competencies. Then you’ll be able to identify and make full use of your strengths and become aware of limitations you need to overcome. Isn’t it time to develop your own agenda, not what others expect of you?

Advancing Your Career Eyes Wide Open!

Where do you want to go in your career?  Why? What do you need to advance? And what will the change mean for you when you achieve your goal? We’ll help you answer these questions and identify the resources you may need – whether it’s additional training, supportive mentors, or a network of people to help you reach your goals.  We’ll also help you focus on related challenges before you take the plunge, from family obligations to compensation questions to relocation issues to age factors. And if you’re willing to do what’s necessary, we’ll work with you to create an action plan and timeline to get you to the there.

Negotiating a Raise

Developing a clear strategy to negotiate your compensation is critical for success. It starts with knowledge of the business landscape.  

  • What’s your value proposition versus that of a competitor?  
  • Have you done your homework on salary and benefits in the industry?
  • What impact do you have, or will have, on the direction of the organization?
  • Do you have colleagues or mentors who will advocate for you?  
  • Is the potential for long-term compensation more important than short-term considerations?  
Strategy and effective communication are key. Ultimately, the negotiating process should be a “win/ win” for you and your employer.

Strategic Networking – One Call or One Text Away

In our fast-moving world, six degrees of separation are too far. Are you using your network effectively?  Is your network too narrowly or broadly defined?  Are you attending networking events and not getting business opportunities or leads to advance your goals?  With a review of your networking objectives, we can examine the pros and cons of events you’re attending. With this review, you’ll be able to spend your networking time and energy more effectively, fine-tune your approach (Help others first), and your “elevator pitch,” so people know exactly what you’re looking for and how they can help.

Looking at the Big Picture, too

With a license in certified financial planning, we discuss your career and business aspirations and how this direction will affect your personal financial picture. Look before your leap, eyes wide open. The conversation will include goals, time horizons, and risk tolerance. It’s important to gather pertinent facts about your family’s financial needs and future goals, as well as current financial statements and investment, will and trust documents, etc. in order to analyze your plans and goals in context.  

Guiding Careers of Special Ops Officers

As special-forces officers re-enter civilian life, we can work with them to translate their exceptional skills into a value proposition for high-level careers in civilian life.  

This kind of coaching is important because many officers have little awareness of job opportunities after service or how to promote their skills. We will use leading psychological and aptitude assessment tools to determine best-fit career and education options based upon personality, experience and preferences. Then we will develop a realistic plan for a successful transition and career path.
