It’s humbling.

I just sent a note of thanks to a client from last year who signed up for one of my new programs in early 2021. Her response floored me. “We received a bonus this year, and this seemed like a great way to use it.

Talk about motivation (and pressure!) to do an incredible job!

A Year of Growth Driven by Purpose

Last year was challenging for everyone, our team included. Yet, it was one of the most productive years personally and as a group. We launched a great number of on-demand and live-online programs. We hosted thousands via our free webinars. I published more articles than at any point in my career. And, we served more professionals in our programs than in any prior year.

It’s nice when the numbers work, but that’s missing the point. We create programs to help people achieve things they never thought possible in their careers. From first-time managers to senior executives, career reinventors, people navigating challenging conversations, or individuals working to level up, we strive to bring this purpose to life in everything we do.

Thank you to everyone who joined our programs, attended our webinars, and read our articles and newsletters! And a special thanks to my coaching clients! It’s an honor to serve all of you.

Shifting the Focus to Leveling Up in the New Year

I hope you’ll consider joining us in the new year to support your growth and development. As my client offered above, investing in yourself and your team members is a great thing to do. And, there’s something for every budget.

Here’s the short-list. You can click through the links to learn more. Feel free to reach back to me with any questions.

Our First-Time Manager Academy (live and online) is great for new managers, but there’s a gap in the market for those thinking of becoming managers.
