Stop asking for Permission

Experience coaching firsthand and discover what differentiates people at the top of their career. The reality is that you have most likely been successful to date, but you sense that the same approach won’t propel you where you truly want to be. Sounding Line provides you the opportunity to get dedicated support and practice making important decisions without a risk. In order to guarantee that you will get the outcome you desire, I need to know that we are a good fit. And you need to trust that I can help you go deeper on your career than you’ve been able to go on your own. A one-hour career coaching session may be all you need to move past the fear of making the wrong move.

The free one hour discovery session...

Our free session is an active meeting. Not a sales call. We get right into the questions you are trying to answer. Even if you don’t decide to contract with Sounding Line right away, I want to help you start the process of getting clarity on what you truly want. Together we get into your story. Through a narrative process, we start to explore what you liked and learned in each chapter of your life and generate real possibilities for the future.

Career Goal Fitness

It’s not that things don’t make sense but that the things that used to make sense are not as reliable. Sometimes it can feel difficult to figure out the goals and outcomes you desire and how they fit into a fractured system. Credits and degrees, promotion and advancement, appear to be the end game but they don’t describe the space you truly need to navigate. You feel obliged to go from job to career like you know what we are doing and that your investments are safe. It’s not a matter of being successful, you probably already have that. It's more about having the wherewithal to experience your own definition of success as a practice.

 

At Sounding Line, we call this Career Goal Fitness. It’s not ok to accomplish what you set out to do and still be yearning for something. We need peace of mind and ease and flow because building a career is a non-linear continuous process. If you want to pivot toward the skills you want to use and the impact you want to have, then you need a language to talk about the things you bump into along the way and what to do about it in a practical judgment free way. The capacity to handle life’s challenges with a positive attitude is more than a practice. In the world we are living in, it’s an asset that you can’t do without. Deep dives, getting to source code and rebooting your career navigation system requires mental fitness and accountability. I don’t want clients to get bogged down in ideas and insights.

Focus is the career currency of the future!

 

Sounding Line uses evidence-based practices from breakthrough research in neuroscience, cognitive behavioral psychology, positive psychology and performance science to build an operating system for the inevitable cycle of stability and change in your career. Group and individual programs are available.

"I started the program at a pivot point in my life. My chronic pain issues were finally getting better, but I was faced with profound changes and uncertainties in both my personal and professional lives. Through simple yet challenging exercises and by creating a space for vulnerability, working with Sounding Line helped me set new foundations on which to build the next stages of my life and started me on the path to self-acceptance. "

The Power of Storytelling

At the heart of the Sounding Line process is the reflective practice of experiential learning. Research shows that your stories, the important events you remember and share, provide the most fundamental understanding of what you want and don’t want. In our first session, we create a mosaic of desires, strengths, natural interests, personal qualities and assets, by revisiting who you truly are. As you share your essence, we begin the process of transforming your values, passions and skills into real-opportunities. All of our work together gets stored in a web-based storyteller interface where we go from clarification into taking action and exploring what's possible. At the end of our initial session, I provide a log-in, so you can revisit your work. If you remain a client of Sounding Line, we continue to reflect on your stories, look for clues and create a wealth of professional language about the next chapter of your life. You retain access to this highly functional online career planning tool for as long as you desire to use it.  

Scheduling & Payment

Sounding Line makes scheduling and payment easy. Your free session provides the opportunity for me to assess the type of program that will be best for you. All individual career coaching experiences are built upon a Pay as You Grow model. I also encourage clients to participate in Career Goal Fitness and experience the benefit of an accountability pod. Mental Fitness can also be incorporated into individual sessions.

The Sounding Line Promise

Many traditional career navigation systems have been broken for a long time. You want accountability and structure and a person with experience related to your issues. At Sounding Line, we believe that you never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
