Individual Coaching Sessions

WHYteboard Coaching Sessions (90 Minutes)

Through my work on Purpose and Strengths, I’ve discovered individuals are more engaged, more productive, and happier when they feel they are living their purpose and focusing on what they do well.  This coaching session will help you to identify and express your unique contribution in a compelling and memorable way.

Prior to the session, you will take an online Purpose Discovery course to help you find clarity, meaning, and fulfillment. Additionally, you will take a Strengths assessment to help you discover and harness your natural talents to succeed.

During the session, you will get the opportunity to put onto a whiteboard what you may have always felt in your gut about your unique contribution and talents to create your new “narrative.” 

After the session, you will use this narrative to create your “brand” by:

  • Learning how to talk about yourself at networking events,
  • Incorporating elements of the narrative into your resume and LinkedIn profile,
  • and, how you respond to interview questions when seeking a new job or looking for that next promotion.
