Services
:  Life/Career Reinvention Coaching / Strategic Planning / Board Development /  Healthcare / Management Consulting / Public Relations / Meeting Facilitation / Leadership / Productivity. 

 

Clients are from throughout the US and are individuals in transition because of divorce, career change, empty nest, relocation, or leaders at small to mid-size corporations or non-profits who seek a new direction. What keeps them up at night is not having a vision or strategy to move them forward. They see the future very much like the present +/- 10% and know what that has cost them in growth, income and fulfillment. They are working hard but not smart because there is a lack of vision, goals, accountability or good work/life balance in place to produce exceptional results. So bureaucracy, personal agendas and cynicism have grabbed hold when what they want is rekindled passion to be their best or create the best product or service in their industry at a rate of high performers who are fulfilled by a lifestyle friendly business.

Greetings!  

  

If you want to drive your life, your career or your business in a direction that will bring you more success you have to know the destination you are called to pursue. You want to know what that target looks, feels, smells and tastes like. It has to be palpable to you - so much so that you can describe it down to the last detail.

 

No matter what line of work, volunteerism or business you are in, you have an "Ideal Company. Even if you will be self-employed - you want to know what kind of company you want to build. Be specific. You want to define the size and other demographic information of the ideal company in which you'd like to work or business you want to build so that you may follow through with research on who fits that description or how you will build it yourself.

 

If you will be self-employed - I encourage you not to think too small. Think BIG! Many entrepreneurs set low goals so as not to fail. If you are going to dream - this is the place to dream BIG!

 

The ABCs to Distinguish Your Ideal Company

 

Make an "Ideal Company Traits List." If you were to work for or build a company that met your ideal standards what would that look and feel like?

 

a. Is it a for-profit business or non-profit organization?

 

b. How many people work there?

 

c. Do you work on site, in the field or from home?

 

d. Is it a service or product oriented company?

 

e. What are the particular industries that interest you?

 

f. If you are employed by this company what size is the department you work in? / If this is your own company how large is your executive management team?

 

g. How would you describe your work day - Are you able to self-actuate or do you want more direction from managers, clients or customers?

 

h. Who is there to support you?

 

i. What is your boss or your board of advisors like?

 

j. Is their travel involved? How far?

 

k. What does your office look like?

 

l. What does the company do/sell?

 

m. What need does the company fill?

 

n. How would you rate the importance of what the company does on a scale of 1 to 10.

 

n. How does the company's purpose align with your purpose?

 

o. What is your ideal salary range?

 

p. Is there a bonus in your salary structure?

 

q. What is included in the benefits package?

 

r. Describe the work environment - fast paced or leisurely?

 

s. If you are employed how would you describe your manager's style? / If you are self-employed how would you describe the style of your clients?

 

t. Are your work assignments structured or do you have a lot of freedom to create that structure?

 

u. What will your manager or clients expect from you? Who will advise you?

 

v. How would you describe how your manager seeks input from you? / How would you describe how you give input to the people who work for you?

 

w. What is the feeling you go home with at the end of the day?

 

x. What value of your is evident in your work?

 

y. What else is important?
