Description

Why does my workday feel so unfulfilling? Do I need to adjust my current roles and tasks? Do I need to change careers completely? Where do I even start? What if I have no idea what it feels like to be passionate about work? What if I feel completely depleted by my life? Is it possible to have a happier daily life? This online course is designed to help you find answers to questions like these, so that you can make the changes you need to have a happier, more fulfilling life and career.

For most of my adult life, I have been obsessed with understanding what makes people fulfilled by their daily work. Earning a PhD in Organizational Communication, I was constantly seeking to understand how research on happiness and life fulfillment intersected with our careers. As I moved through my own journey, from working as a professor of communication, to a fulfilling career as a professional speaker and life coach, I was able to deeply understand the difficulty of being in a career that didn’t fit, and the fulfillment in finding a path that aligned deeply with my strengths.

This course is not a “feel good” course designed to simply tell you to “find your passion.” It’s a hands on practical class on how to look carefully into your current career and daily life, so that you can get clear about what’s working and what’s not. Drawing on the work of Marcus Buckingham, research on life satisfaction and the state of flow, I offer you the real, nitty-gritty information on building a career that aligns with what makes you feel alive, interested, engaged and happy. And not surprisingly, when you feel this way, you are far more likely to be successful. It’s your life, you deserve to live a STRONG one! Now let’s get started.

Who is the target audience?
  • Individuals eager to investigate what career will bring them the most success and fulfillment.
  • Individuals who feel disconnected from their passion.
  • Anyone desiring more energy, joy and excitment in their day to day life.
  • Individuals who are ready to investigate their life more deeply to understand what fits and what doesn't.
  • Anyone who desires a better connection to their current career.
  • Anyone who wants to get clear on their real strengths and weaknesses.

PhD Communication, Professional Speaker, Life Coach

In 2000 I began my long journey toward a PhD in Organizational Communication and Gender Studies. Like many, my initial career path wasn’t based on a careful calculation of what was in line with my deepest desires, but rather, my choice to become a researcher and professor seemed to be a natural progression. I was interested in the human experience and perhaps most persuasive, I had excelled in my courses. This decision was solidified in graduate school, as I found that I had a talent for teaching. I received excellent feedback from both my students and my colleagues. And while it felt amazing to know I had found a career path where I could perform well, this was simply not enough to make my career and life feel satisfying and deeply meaningful.

Though I loved continually learning and connecting with students, after over 10 years of teaching undergraduates I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was being depleted by the tasks and roles that were at the center of my job. My interest in personal development literature, and research on issues like happiness, career fulfillment, purpose and success was insatiable. I found myself unable to suppress my constant desire to help students deal with stress, figure out their best career path, discover their real strengths and build an overall fulfilling life. After years of building a successful career in the walls of academia I knew I had to make a change if I was going to feel deeply connected to my work. And so I left my career as a professor to become a professional speaker and practicing life coach.

By deeply investigating my current career and getting clear about my true strengths, I was able to discover what I needed to build a life and career that would be meaningful, engaging and in line with the very best of what I have to offer the world. My current coaching practice, keynotes and workshops draw upon my years of studying, practicing and teaching what truly brings people deeply satisfying lives.
