Career & Financial Coaching
NEW! Tuesday, February 20 (3-weeks), 7-9 PM. Pre-registration required.
“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.

Job Search Accelerator
Job Search Accelerator: New in 2018! - Three different 6-week sessions
Monday, February 26, 1:30 - 3:30 PM (Register here)
Thursday, April 12, 7-9 PM (Register here)
Monday, June 4, 1:30 - 3:30 PM (Register here)
This 6 week unique coaching cohort is based on the various tech accelerators in town. Each weekly session will include: presentations from subject matter experts (based on the needs of the group), time in the session to apply what you’ve just learned to your own job search, and individualized coaching within a smaller sub-group of four people working with a coach.
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.
Will return soon! Mondays, 1:30-3 PM.
Whether you’re reemerging into the workforce by choice or necessity, searching for a new job can seem like a daunting task.

We’ll begin with résumés, LinkedIn, and networking, and progress to mock interviews and how to ace them. While there is intent behind the flow of the weekly lineup, pre-registration is not necessary, as participants are welcome to join the group at any time.

In this small coaching group, you will be able to consult with subject matter experts from all ages and stages of life to develop your knowledge base and action plan for financial, physical, and emotional success – as you define “success”. We will start with two weeks focused on all things financial, according to what the group members desire. We anticipate some discussion of the following: managing bills, tracking expenses, housing options and how to evaluate, retirement planning, record keeping, etc. Then we will transition to two-weeks of physical and mental health, again as defined by what the group members desire. Suggested topics include the following: health insurance, preventive maintenance/well-being checkups, finding resources when needed for spiritual, emotional, and physical needs, time management, resetting, etc. Finally, our focus will shift to career and professional development and the issues group members would like to address. Some topics might include the following: work place anxiety, working with multiple generations, managing people 40 years older than you, career development, when to move on, and how to search for a job while working.
