My Top 10 Secrets of a Career Coach

I facilitate a lot of workshops within companies to help groups in certain areas like leadership development, communication, and time management.  After completing the workshop, people usually come up and ask me questions or make comments about the content.  By far the number one question I get asked afterwards by employees (who pull me to the side) is, do you do resumes and career coaching?  It’s estimated that 70% of people are disengaged at work!  The questions I get asked inside of companies prove it.  Most professionals are unhappy and a...

No Hard Feelings – 3 Ways to Release Negative Energy and Move Forward

When was the last time you got really angry?  Was your heart beating fast?  Did you feel like you wanted to explode?  Were you upset with another person, or just a situation in general?  How did you react?  More importantly, were you satisfied with your reaction to the circumstance a day later? I’ve always been a pretty calm person for about 95% of the time.  Prior to becoming a coach and running my own business, if you caught me at an angry moment (during that 5% of the time), it would’ve been best to move out of the way. 🙂  I was a very...

You’ll Lose Friends…The Ugly/Beautiful Truth About Creating Success

Take a moment to think about how long you’ve had some of your closest friends.  Are they from childhood, college, or did you meet them at work?  Friends usually make up a large part of your support system.  They are there to listen, help you solve problems, and have a good time with.  Some people spend more time with their friends than their family members.  What do friendships mean to you?  How important are they?  Whether you place a high value on friendships or not, everyone needs support.

Think you don’t need help?  3 Tips to Overcoming Invincible Syndrome & Creating Success!

Can you ask for help?  Or do you think it’s a sign of weakness or ignorance?  Most people are taught not to ask for help or to do so sparingly.  What’s crazy about that is the most successful people in their careers or business are NOT doing everything themselves!  They are seeking counsel and employing others to do a lot of the work for them.  Trying to go it alone is stressful, difficult, and usually one of the experiences that causes people to quit on their dreams.  A lot of new business owners develop what I call Invincible Syndrome.  I...
