2016 in review + resources for you

As 2017 dawns, I’m reflecting on my busy 2016 and want to share some of the career resources I created along the way.

While I’m more than ready for the fresh start that 2017 portends, 2016 was a busy and exciting year for me. This quick review allows me to share not only my news–but also many of the career advancing resources I created along the way. I hope you and your colleagues find them helpful.

Coaching Client Success
My career transition clients continue to field multiple offers while landing great jobs at companies like Disney and CREDO Mobile, and in multiple industries including healthcare and nonprofit management. Thanks in part to a mention on Quora by a client who landed at Microsoft, my niche specialty of working with product managers in the tech world continues to grow.

I’ve been adding more executive coaching clients to help people become more effective leaders, particularly in the area of healthy, assertive communication.

Helping Organizations Thrive

  • Delivered my third Career Summit–a two-day job landing boot camp–for undergraduates at the University of Virginia. Hear their key takeaways in their own words (1 minute)!
  • Designed and led staff and/or board development experiences for multiple organizations including CBRE and JCC Chicago.
  • Continued as the resident career coach for 30+ recent or soon-to-be college graduates participating in the Nachshon Project, and as an instructor in the White House-recognized LA Fellows program.
  • Presented “Advance Your Career With Social Media” (see the online version) at the LA chapter meetings of the Association for Talent Development (ATD) and International Coach Federation (ICF).

Media + resources for you

Cubs win World Series!
My only role was flying right over Cleveland on the afternoon of Game 7 on my way to Boston to lead a series of career workshops, “raining” down all the positive Cubbie vibes I could muster.

I wish you a healthy and fulfilling 2017.
