We will help you catalyze your passions and priorities for professional success.
The COVID-19 global pandemic is continually redefining the employment landscape. Certain kinds of jobs are disappearing. Meanwhile, others are demanding that we do more with less to accommodate resource gaps and limitations. Furloughs, job losses, homeschooling, virtual meeting marathons, and hiring and promotion freezes, —how do we move beyond merely surviving? This pandemic doesn’t hold the sole right to redefining our futures. Instead, it brings with it an opportunity for each of us to redefine how we want to lead the future today. It offers time to reflect, redefine, and take ownership of what matters most. This course is designed to help each participant do that, especially as our society emerges from the worst of the pandemic.
Over the course of three months, we will engage in 90-minute small group coaching sessions. Each group will consist of a maximum of 10 participants. Designed for maximum impact in minimal time, we begin our journey by delving into an honest understanding of where each of us finds ourselves at this moment.
The challenges, the benefits, and the calls to action are unique to each participant. From there, we move to where we truly want to be and how we want to answer those calls to action. Then we navigate our way there. With SMART goals and accountability practices, we work toward driving practical, real-world results for the future we want to create today.
