Discover Your Inner Leader Are you an introvert who is moving from being an individual contributor into a managerial position? Managing others comes with a host of challenges—including not knowing how you want to show up as a boss. You won't be alone as I work with you to discover your distinct leadership style. We will begin by defining your Foundational Leadership Values, which will serve as your compass to help you navigate your new role. This course is designed to help you own who you are in your work environment in order to build up your voice. As a fellow introvert, I am in touch with the distinct challenges we face holding our own in this extravert-centered culture. This six-month program includes a 90-minute assessment and eleven 50-minute sessions.
The Get S**t Done Program is a kickass way to get into action. We’ll start by looking—really looking—at what it is that you want and define possible roadblocks before creating an action plan. This program is designed to move you out of the land of good intentions and into meaningful, purposeful action.
Completing important tasks not only gets you closer to your goals but it also can contribute to your wellbeing, sense of accomplishment, and self-confidence. Those benefits serve as fuel to keep you motivated and moving forward.
During our work together, we will look at what motivates you (because we are not all wired the same) and what holds you back. We’ll build on that knowledge, allowing you to deepen your understanding of yourself so that you can be more aligned in your work and your life.
This four-month program includes a 90-minute assessment and seven 50-minute sessions.
Writing for Reluctant (Non-)Writers Program Do you need to write for work but don't think of yourself as a writer? Whether you're working on an ebook, a dissertation, or other piece of writing , I can help you become undaunted—and perhaps embrace—the activity of writing.
Before training as a coach, I worked as a writer, including a seven-year stint at UC Berkeley's Office of Public Affairs. I know that writing can be fertile ground for procrastination and self-doubt. During this six-month course you will learn to get out of your own way, find flow, and redefine your relationship to writing.
Making It Work at Work Program is for you if you feel fed up, frustrated, or uninspired at work. During this four-month program, we’ll take a deep dive to explore what’s really underlying your “complaint(s).” Once we pinpoint what you wish to change, we will create an action plan comprised of next steps and weekly strategies (this doesn’t necessarily include leaving your current job).
It can be soul sucking to work at a job in which you are not at your best. It takes a toll on the rest of your life. The benefits of clearing out the stuck/frustrated/unhappy energy of a bad work situation will spill over into your relationships, your health, and recreation. Let's work together to change that. This six-month program includes a 90-minute assessment and eleven 50-minute sessions.
Career Logjam Breakthrough Program: I know what it’s like to feel like you haven’t discovered what you’re meant to do. I believe we each have unique gifts and contributions to make in this world. When you find your “sweet spot,” you’ll be able to approach your work with a different level of engagement and energy. Working at what you have chosen to do and what you do best will result in a better, more aligned relationship between you and your work.
This program will help you focus your energies in a new direction—or find what excited you in the first place about what you’re doing now—so that you can break through that frustrating, stuck feeling to become engaged and energized by your work. We'll use Gallup Strengthsfinder and Foundational Values Definitions to align you with your life's work. Then we will look at the steps you can take to move into an inspired work life. Available add-ons include resume writing, networking skills, and interview preparation. This six-month program includes a 90-minute assessment and eleven 50-minute sessions.
Envisioning Your Next Chapter Program is for you if you’re exploring the idea of retirement or have retired from your career. Retirement affords the opportunity to revisit long-ago interests, invest time in what matters most, and live life with a new freedom. Perhaps you have a legacy to consider before moving on. Maybe you’re considering relocating or downsizing your home. Or you’re concerned that you’ll be at loose ends without a 9-5 structure.
Life is precious. Defining what you want and making clear, conscious choices will help you wring the most joy and pleasure from your life. Who can argue with that? This four-month program includes two 75-minute assessment sessions and six 50-minute sessions.
“I sought Wendy out when I was moving into my first ever management role and she has been instrumental in helping me find my voice as a leader. She has also helped me tackle some persistent struggles I have had with time management. Wendy takes an empathetic and thoughtful approach with questions that drive at the heart of the matter. Working with Wendy has been truly enlightening and I treasure the learning and growth I've achieved with her guidance..”
