We work with experienced professionals who are ambitious and motivated by career advancement. Whether you want to get ahead or are trying to safeguard your position during uncertain times of turmoil, you know you have to take greater control of your career in order to stand out and succeed.

  • Are you frustrated with the progress of your career and feel that it is “stuck in the slow lane?” You may worry about lack of motivation at work or be uncertain about how to promote your yourself.
  • Do you have skills & abilities you are not using in your current job?Maybe you feel burned out and know you can do other things, but don’t know how to repackage yourself so that others take you seriously.
  • Can you see yourself doing the same thing 5 or 10 years from now?Perhaps you lack direction and need some guidance on how to go after a more satisfying job.
  • Would you like to develop better leadership or management skills? You have potential that isn’t being recognized by your colleagues/employers or clients and want to do something about it.
  • Do you know what you want to do, but don’t know how to get there?You are looking for a specific opportunity but can’t seem to land anything and you’ve run out of ideas.

If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, you can benefit from Business Management Coaching, or Career Management Coaching. I would like to invite you to make this your year to change your direction and your “luck!” Make a simple commitment to transform your career and your life instead of “marking time” and letting fantastic opportunities pass you by!

Top qualities: Personable, Expert, Good Value

“I have not had to apply for employment in 33 years, but Mickey helped me to think through my career change so that I could position myself correctly and realistically in 2008. He is well connected and is a terrific resource for all aspects of managing a career move.” –Ed/Atlanta, GA

“Most importantly, I have to credit Mickey with giving me the courage to leave the corporate world and start chasing the passions and goals that truly make me happy.” -Lee/California

“I knew there was more to life (& work), but I needed help deciding what direction to go – what to do with my career. Working with Mickey helped me do that.  I’m feeling great and more confident” -Matt/Illinois

“Mickey has provided me with the counsel, coaching and support that was necessary to triumph over many life challenges, including unemployment, the decision to start my own business, personal challenges with the terminal illness of my husband and the creation of my first book.” –Jo/California

“Thank you! I need this guidance to move forward effectively. I wish I had met you 10 years ago – but, I know it is never too late. Just wanted to let you know I had a very good experience.” Candy/Georgia 

“The Xerox Corporation carried out several coaching-related studies, one of which showed that in the absence of follow-up coaching 87% of the skills change brought about by the program was lost.  That’s 87 cents in the skills dollar.  However good your skills training in the classroom, unless it’s followed up on the job, most of its effectiveness is lost without follow-up coaching.  For example: Most sales people try out the new skills for a few calls, find that they feel awkward and the new method isn’t bringing instant results, so they go back to their old ways.
