Item Description

She's been working with WAM!'s Executive Director for years, and now it's your turn. Whether you're just starting out, ready to make a change, or just want to take your career to the next level in 2015, Shana Ross can help you master your work life.

Choose one of the following, which can be done remotely via phone or Skype from wherever you are: 

Confidence Boost                    

Do articles about the confidence gap hit a little too close to home for you? Whatever your gender, plenty of us can use help being more assertive in our daily lives and refine the ways we project charisma and confidence.  Using acting, directing and organizational development research and exercises, this package will help you examine, appreciate and wield your strengths, as well as provide tools and suggestions for more effectively communicating an authentic confidence to colleagues, supervisors and the general public.  4 sessions, up to 6 hours direct coaching.

Early Career Insights               

For individuals who graduated from an undergraduate institution no more than 5 years ago…a special deal for those who can benefit greatly from coaching, but are least likely to be engage an executive coach.  Sessions will focus on ways to proactively build the career of your dreams, with regular examination of professional strengths, weaknesses, desires and dislikes – addressing each in turn in a supportive and confidential setting.  4 sessions, up to 6 hours direct coaching.

Making Changes       

For the person who knows they want to make a job change or career switch, but needs help thinking through the process…might be that you’re unhappy or unfulfilled, but want to make sure that your next move is actually a better fit, might be that you’re feeling burnt-out or beaten and fear that’s clouding your judgment, might be that you’re dreaming of a change so big that the steps you need to take are unclear or overwhelming.  Can include interview and resume prep or more general work on self assessment, presentation and professional narrative. 4 sessions, up to 6 hours direct coaching.

Executive Coaching

There are very few executive managers who are “perfect” leaders for any organization – professional coaching is a way to directly target and address specific shortcomings that concern the governing board, limit an Executive Director’s effectiveness, and/or cause the type of personal distress that can lead to burnout. This package can focus on specific management concerns of the board, general leadership development, or, “development” development, in which an executive director focuses on improve the organization’s fundraising efforts by improving the fundraising capacity of its leadership. 4 sessions, up to 6 hours direct coaching.
