Career Transition – Planned or Unplanned

Between jobs or looking to make a leap? I keep up with the latest hiring trends so you don’t have to. I have worked with nearly 200 job seekers since 2016 and have extensive experience with technology companies and how to best position yourself with recruiters using my Recruiter Ready methodology.

  • We’ll remake your resume
  • Update your LinkedIn presence
  • Share best-practices on your job search
  • Develop your interviewing and networking point of view

We’ll discuss whatever is coming up: interview debriefing, navigating recruiters, salary negotiation, fears about ageism, and more.

You get a new resume, LinkedIn presence, and job search tactics along with 1:1 coaching for up to three hours. We work together until you get a new job or you let me know you are no longer looking. $949 Special Package.

Feeling like you have Imposter Syndrome

“Why does everyone act like I know what I am doing?” When you are good at your work it shows. But sometimes you might feel like you are just making it up as you go along and no one knows you are faking it, leaving you feeling weird, like you are tricking them… an imposter who will be exposed any day now! Imposter Syndrome is real – and something that can be coached through – allowing you to leave Imposter Syndrome behind and get in touch with the authentic, emotionally available leader you want to be.

No More Frustrating Conversations

Do you feel like conversations don’t turn out the way you expected? We’ll work together to discover what “having a conversation” means to you. We look at where and when communication frustration appears and help you develop skills to connect effectively with others.

Emotional Fluency for Workplace Professionals

Feel awkward with emotions at work or afraid of having conversations around emotionally-charged or sensitive topics? Get a handle on how to show up for others as a professional who can speak to the real emotions in the room (without fear of triggering an emotional blow-out). Using my tried and tested “Core Communication” methodology, you’ll have access to a learnable approach that creates room to discuss the tough stuff like performance issues and interpersonal breakdowns. You’ll also master the art of delivering heartfelt praise in a way that resonates with managers, peers, and direct reports.

Stop Turning People Off

Do you seem to accidentally peeve people off? It can be frustrating when people don’t want to hang out with us or worse, seem to be openly avoiding conversations. I will be authentic about how you show up in the eyes and ears of other people. Nothing to be fixed – you can learn to be with people in a conscious, mindful way. You’ll get some tools and points of view that will change how you relate to others.

Startup Founder Professional Development

Is your startup having conflicts among the founders and/or other key employees? Maybe you’d like to minimize potential conflicts?

You went into business with your fellow founders to create a company that is successful. Don’t let emotions or communication issues between founders threaten the future of your company. It’s possible to create a culture of meaningful, authentic communication. When you compare the cost of losing a founder to the cost of bringing on a coach the math seems pretty easy. I’ll work with the whole Founding team to help you build communication skills that work and last. Experience with pre-revenue and early funding companies (from Seed through A round) and mature tech companies.

Custom Retainer Packages – Example program: Twice-monthly sessions for up to five founders with quarterly group meetings and scheduled on-site visits for coaching. Sessions will be conducted by video chat or telephone, or in the Seattle or SF Bay Area some sessions may be scheduled in person. Starting at $300/month per founder.* Special companywide coaching packages for companies of 10 or less. 

*Every startup has different needs, we create the right program. If necessary, travel expenses negotiated and billed separately.

LGBTQ Aware Coaching

I am here to be with you the way you are.

“Tim is a strong coach. Whether by phone or in person, Tim asks insightful questions, which allow you drill down into the tricky issues, pull them apart to see them from several new angles, and figure out the next steps that are the right fit for you.

Tim is really good at paying attention not just to what you say, but how you say it, to help uncover hidden assumptions about a challenge that you’re facing, which then allows you to take a different approach. He does all of this with a great sense of humor. I always leave coaching sessions with a renewed sense of what’s possible.” – Angela Knox, VP of Engineering, Cloudmark
