Getting Unstuck Bootcamp

Be part of the mind-frame shifting Getting Unstuck Bootcamp, an explosive day-long group coaching program to re-group, re-brand, and re-tool yourself for your next career move.  

Do you get the feeling that you are spinning your wheels, that you keep getting the same less-than-satisfying results, and you are not sure why?  Is the same detrimental behavior and the accompanying self-limiting thoughts holding you back from your potential? 

The Getting Unstuck Bootcamp begins the work of identifying these barriers, understanding the larger issue underlying them, and developing an action plan for change. 

Event Dates: Stay tuned for our NYC debut in early August!

The workshop tackles the following:

  • What is holding you back?  Examples among the 12 major patterns of self-limiting behavior include:
    • Never feeling good enough
    • Seeing the world in black and white
    • Doing to much, pushing too hard
    • Avoiding conflict at any cost
  • What is your 5-7 year life and career vision?

  • What is your long term (5-7 years), short term (1-3 years) and immediate term (for 2009) to get your closer to your 5-7 year life and career vision.

  • Who are the 100 People critical to increasing your success and joy factor.  What is your 30 day plan to create these lifeline relationships?
