We provide you with high-impact personalized guidance, strategies and action items to achieve your goals. A two-hour minimum is required for the initial session and if you’d like follow-up sessions, they can be scheduled on a one or two-hour basis.

Boardroom Readiness

When considering a board search, how you market and present yourself is different from the way you would for a job search. Whether you’ve served as a director or would like to become one, we offer a variety of services that can help.

We look at your personal brand from every perspective to ensure you make powerful impressions in every business situation.

When interviewing for a job, preparation is key. Our strategic guidance and support can boost your confidence, helping to differentiate you from the competition and receive an offer. This is important whether you haven’t looked for a job in years (or ever), are pivoting in a new direction or targeting a specific job.

We offer general and position-specific preparation.

Executive Coaching

As an executive, you have limited time and opportunity to devote to your own leadership development. Many organizations assume that once executives reach the senior level, they have all of the skills and guidance they need. Professional development happens over the course of an entire career and we help continue on your path.

Our executive coaching will help you:
  • Improve self-awareness & executive presence
  • Communicate with impact
  • Clarify professional & development goals
  • Unlock leadership potential
  • Improve collaboration & team engagement to drive outcomes
  • Expand network & knowledge base
  • Tackle challenges with an impartial sounding board
Referral Network

Drawing from our relationships with service providers in related areas of personal branding that meet our standards of quality, professionalism and customer service, we can provide referrals to:

  • Headshot photographer
  • Stylist
  • Presentation coach
  • Creative designer
  • Video producer
