Career & Financial Coaching

Action Boards

Coming in Fall 2018!

“Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is simply passing the time. Action with Vision is making a positive difference.” – Joel Barker

Trying to make a positive change in your life? Give yourself the gift of supported, focused time to transform your vision for a brighter future into an action board. According to Neil Farber, M.D., Ph.D., Action Boards are based on research studies in psychology, mind-brain science, and goal achievement. You will have the option to cut and paste inspiring images and words onto a physical or online virtual board (that you can use as a screensaver). The goal is to create a useful transformation tool that you use regularly, not just pretty pictures that gather dust. Late summer is a great time to regroup and set-up a fresh focus for fall.

This 6 week unique coaching cohort is based on the various tech accelerators in town.

Expectations for participation are that you are ready to make commitments to achieve your personal goals and be held accountable to them, and you want to make serious progress toward your next position. There is an application to participate so that we have an understanding of where you are on your search so that we may build a cohort that is in a similar space.

Like other accelerators & UC’s Back to Business Basics, there is a cost of $100.00. However, you have the opportunity to earn back $75 by meeting the milestones that you set for weeks 2, 4, and 6.

Your participation in this group will provide dedicated, structured time to accelerate your search, fill in the blanks of “I don’t know what I don’t know,” and be equipped to carry through to the successful end of your search. You will also have a team to support you, encourage you, and share in the joys as you go, knowing that you are not alone in the job search wilderness. Limited to 8 people.
