"Mine is a very personal coaching process. I take a holistic approach to career exploration. So many elements of your life impact your career (family, finances, health, background, internal scripts, risk tolerance, etc.). In order to move forward successfully, you need to look back at all relevant issues in your life. Be prepared to bring your whole self to each assignment and each session and watch how different parts of your life and work intertwine and start to make sense in a new way." - Julie
The Effort vs. Payoff Imbalance
If your current working situation feels like too much work and not enough payoff, it’s time to challenge the status quo. Nearly 60% of working Americans say they would change career paths if they could do it all over again. Are you one of them?
The process of exploring alternate career options can feel daunting and risky. But a well-thought-out strategic move that capitalizes on your strengths, minimizes your weaknesses, and creates new opportunities can be life-changing! You will spend approximately +40 years of your life working. Devoting that time to something you love will have an immeasurable impact on your quality of life.
You Don’t Have to Go It Alone
It is 100% possible to transition from unemployment, underemployment, an unfulfilling job, personal/professional roadblocks, or situations of uncertainty and burnout, to an ideal career that aligns with your unlimited potential.
When contemplating a career transition, having a coach in your corner can be a game-changer. I guide clients to identify their optimal career direction and explore it from a variety of angles to ensure a smooth transition into the next phase of their professional life.
Life is About Using the Whole Box of Crayons
Your purpose is to learn and evolve on your life journey and teach others, directly and indirectly, through the model of your life. Does your career allow you to do what you do best every day? Too often you can be promoted to positions that benefit your boss or the company but allow your natural talents to go untapped. Most managers are more focused on your immediate performance and how that reflects on them, instead of your development leading you to devote more time fixing your shortcomings than developing your strengths.
My comprehensive, individualized Career Exploration Series – Connecting with Your Inner GPS, guides you to evaluate a wide range of career factors, including your talents, aptitudes, interests, values, desired impact, and more - to discover the career that’s the right fit for you.
The Career Exploration Series
You receive module-specific course materials that guide you to a deeper understanding of yourself and build confidence in your career decisions by
Exploring what is working for you professionally and what is not to determine the type of environment, people, and culture that will foster the greatest growth
Evaluating which patterns of behavior create success and satisfaction in your career and your life and which do not get the results you desire
Analyzing your interests and passions to determine what type of work connects with your innate reward system
Exploring your genius of you (tapped and untapped) by identifying professional attributes, technical skills, and competitive differentiators
And how to integrate all this information to identify a new role that values the way you are naturally built and allows you to transition your strengths to new endeavors.
How Does It Work?
This is a self-paced series comprised of four modules.
The client will receive 2+ pre-assignments for each module that must be completed and returned in order to schedule the associated Session.
Once the coursework has been completed for a module, it can be submitted for a brief review. If the assignments are deemed complete, the client is sent a scheduling link for a sixty-minute 1:1 coaching session.
You can move as fast or as slowly through the sessions as you wish, depending on calendar availability. (Note: Calendar availability is"typically" booked out 5-10 days from the date of search but may vary depending on seasonality and demand).

“Julie was great to work with. I needed help determining which way to turn when I was laid off after 24 years with the same company. Her process is a lot like therapy which I wasn't expecting, but it helped me really nail down what I wanted from a new job and life in general.
I've never been good at self-promotion, so working with her was key for me to be able to verbalize all my skills and how they translate across industries. Her process helped me realize that I had much more than I had thought to offer another employer.
She's down-to-earth and real, which appealed to me. She was honest and supportive as well. I feel I made the right decision hiring her and actually already recommended her to several friends and former co-workers." - Melissa T

“Being in an established Senior Leadership position for over a decade, I wasn't used to having to navigate a career change. I found Julie's expertise, insight, thoroughness, and products "tools in my arsenal" that I would not want to be without as I being my search in today's employment climate. ” - Corey K

“I spent quite a while researching career coaching before deciding to work with Jule. During our initial phone conversation, I immediately connected with Julie's energy and coaching style. I knew she would be the perfect choice to guide me into my next step in my career. I was at a crossroads due to some unexpected life changes, and Julie was able to help me figure out where I wanted to land next and define a clearer vision for my future. We then continued our work to create a resume I'm extremely happy with - I highly recommend her services!" – Blair B

“I really enjoyed going through Julie's exercises as it helped me discover a side of me I didn't acknowledge before. Sometimes we think we don't have a passion until we do deep introspection and Julie's exercises made me 'dig deep' to get there. I'm so glass I went through the process with her. She's also very insightful, honest, and encouraging." – Silvia Z
