You’re not happy in your current job, but you’re not sure where to go next.

Is clarity just around the corner?

Let’s see if either of these resonates with you:

  • You’ve been unhappy in your job for a while, but you can’t figure out whether to stay or to look for something new. You’re tired of going back and forth replaying the options.
  • You’ve decided to leave your current job, but you want to get clear about where you’re headed. The problem is, you feel stuck in your job search (if it’s even already started) and are getting nowhere fast.

Either way, you want work in which you can make a contribution, be well paid, and be fully present for your life away from work. You’re ready for a career with more meaning, balance, and satisfaction.

Right now, you’re stuck.

Maybe you give it your best effort to change things at work, but you always seem to end up back where you started. You may have looked at job announcements, but nothing feels right. Or, you’ve written your resume, but haven’t put it out there yet. Or maybe you’ve just tried putting your head in the sand hoping things will miraculously fix themselves. But they don’t.

Of course, things aren’t always horrible. But they could be way better.

The thing is, no matter how skilled you are at writing resumes or cover letters, you need the right mindset to find work you love. You need hope and energy. You need to be able to hear your intuition, establish healthy boundaries, and imagine a much brighter future for yourself.

This is what we help our career coaching clients to do.

Robin McKeon - Physical Therapist
Katherine helped me learn to enjoy being in the driver’s seat while allowing life to show me the way. Our work together began with a desire to further myself professionally. And yet over time, we touched on many aspects of life.

I now feel clear and grounded about my next steps forward. By learning to relax, get quiet, and listen, I awakened to a purpose I could not have predicted. I feel energized and committed to this project in a way that I cannot remember feeling for a long time.

By going after my passion, I’m modeling leadership and bravery to my children. And because I’m now more fulfilled and tapped into what is meaningful for me, I feel a much greater connection with my family and an ability to be present when we’re together.

Katherine helped me to better organize, communicate, set goals, and develop authentic confidence. I now notice the subtleties that make all the difference in reaching my ideal effectiveness, creativity, availability, and satisfaction in my work.

Each session with Katherine gave me the strength to know myself more and embrace the fact that I’m the artist who creates my own path. It now feels natural for me to let the next step on my path to bubble up and to act with creativity, interest, excitement, joy, and fulfillment. I look forward to taking this new connection with my inner truth into other areas of my life and continuing to connect with what truly matters!

To successfully navigate through a career transition and create a career you love, you need four ingredients:

1. Clarity

career coaching: hot air balloons floating into sunset

You probably don’t have a clear understanding of what you want in your life. If you were taught to ignore what you want, you need to learn how to reclaim desire. This includes reconnecting with your inner guidance, listening to your body, and making time to reflect. Once you do this, you will be able to match what you want with the needs of potential employers. And you’ll be able to make critical decisions with much less stress and way more ease.

2. Focus

When you lead a busy life like yours, it can be hard to stay focused on changing your life. You need a plan that works for you, a structure to hold yourself accountable, and a system to help you organize your life and keep moving forward towards the life you want. You need to learn how to manage your time to reach your goals.

3. Courage

Fear is often the biggest obstacle to creating a life you love. Although you might try to push your doubts under the rug or ignore your inner critic, it’s still down there in your unconscious. To have the confidence to put yourself out there and nail your job interviews, you need to learn how to turn down the volume on your doubts, fears, and insecurities and take the risks that will lead to success.

4. Communication Skills

When you have a hard time communicating, it can trip you up in so many ways. Maybe a difficult conversation stands between you and moving forward. Or a friend or family member is making you doubt yourself. Or perhaps you need to learn how to present yourself in a way that makes potential employers jump at the prospect of hiring you. With practice, you can learn to communicate in a way that inspires support and gets you the job you want.

We help our career coaching clients discover the clarity, focus, courage, and communication skills they need to transform their careers.

Sometimes, our career coaching clients rediscover their passion and stay in their current career:

Kursten Holabird - Union Campaign Coordinator
I first came to Katherine for transition coaching in the midst of a huge life change. I’d moved across the country with my husband and children, and although I was able to keep working with the same national organization after the move, my job changed substantially. Previously, I’d worked in an exciting, high-paced environment with lots of connections to colleagues and the people we served. In my new location, I was at home, alone, and felt disconnected from my passion.

Katherine helped me decide whether to change career paths or stay at the same organization. I reconnected with my passion, navigated several difficult conversations, and got clear what I truly needed from a job. As a result, I decided to stay at the same organization but to redefine my position.

Online career coaching with Katherine taught me how to focus on (and experience!) what is good in my life. Rather than letting my challenges suck up my energy and make me feel stuck, I now know how to slow down, connect with myself, and create an action plan that feels good. And I now get to experience all of the deliciousness in the moments when I’m present!

Other times, our career coaching clients take the leap onto a new path forward:

Pam Kinsmith, Communications Director
I wasn’t happy in my job for a long time and wasn’t sure how or what I should do to move on from it in a productive way. It felt unfulfilling, lacked meaning and the collaborative environment that I really missed.

With Katherine’s career coaching support, I got clear on what I wanted in a new career. Through our time together, I gained greater confidence, received the feedback I needed to weigh the pros and cons of potential jobs, and left my old position with grace. I was able to review opportunities without rushing into them as I might have done in the past. As a result, I found a new career that feeds my desires for meaningful work, a creative environment, and a collaborative team. I couldn’t be more grateful to have Katherine as my transition coach.

Sally
Katherine helped me to access the courage to leave a job I had been in for over 25 years, which was holding me back on many levels. I’ve gone from feeling anxious in the pit of my stomach to feeling inner peace, strength, comfort, and confidence to take on my world.

Katherine has an innate sense of knowing where to go in each session. She pulls out of me what I need to focus on without thinking there’s anything wrong with me and helps me to connect the dots with self-compassion. Katherine has become the voice of affirmation and support on my shoulder as I go through my days. She does not tell me what to do, and she does not try to fix me. Instead, she teaches me how to listen to myself.

I wholeheartedly recommend Katherine to anyone who wants to organize their life, up their game, and embark on a journey of connecting to who they truly are!
