Career Transition Program
Many believe being “let go” is a commentary on their success in their career. However, in truth, departing an organization is often the most opportune moment for most professionals to create even greater success — and fulfillment — in their career. The key is getting out ahead of the distracting stories that keep us stuck chasing a completed past instead of moving towards our ever-more inspiring future. IN Alignment™ was created to provide a centering, empowering and inspiring career transition program for displaced team members in successfully navigating to their next career step. And while job search, resume development and interview strategy are components of the program, the program more importantly focuses on helping transitioning professionals get to their heart of their greatest potential — a potential is often well-beyond what they have ever considered for themselves before. This self-study virtual program design from over a decade of career transition coaching and research, helps participants re-discover themselves in a fundamental way. They experience a re-alignment to a deep inner clarity, confidence and power to maximize the limitless opportunities in front of them.
IN Alignment™ Program Modules

This module provides participants a critical understanding that no career, position, business or otherwise will ever be perfectly the way we want, and that to be fulfilled in our careers, we must first recognize that fulfillment is not based on things being perfectly the way we want, but rather, based on how we show up to things we do not want.
DEFINING YOUR VISION
15 ::: Preparing The Long & Short Game
This module has participants appreciate that their values (and thereby their career vision) will change as they navigate life phases and the best game plan for the next step in their career is to ensure that game plan incorporates a balance with the longer game plan of their likely, if not inevitable life.
