What will we work on? The choice is yours.

Coaching is a great way to get your life moving forward. Maybe you came here because of a problem, setback, or simply feeling stuck. We all experience these circumstances and want to find a path for something new to happen. Here are some coaching topics that are popular with my clients. Of course, we can explore any topic you’d like to bring and we aren’t limited to just this list.

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 more than 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 discuss whatever is coming up: interview debriefing, navigating recruiters, salary negotiation, ageism concerns, and more.

You get a new resume, LinkedIn presence, and job search tactics along with 1:1 coaching you can schedule as needed (up to three hours). We work together as long as you are actively seeking employment until you get a new job (or we’ve worked together for six months). $949 Flat Fee Special Package.

What’s Next In My Career, Career Shift, or Changing Industries

Not sure what you next act might be?  We all suffer from “The Drift” – a career that has evolved naturally along the lines of the opportunities where we said “yes.” That first break in your current field may have defined the types of jobs you’ve been able to get for your whole professional life. If you’re ready to take charge of your career and assess your skills and experience, you could choose your next role rather than going after the same sorts of jobs you’ve pursued in the past. We’ll take stock of where you are, what you want to do, and what steps to take to go after a role you are qualified for and really want. Some clients like to do this series before signing on for a Career Transition Package.

Four coaching sessions with unlimited email support. Sessions will be conducted by video chat or telephone, or in the Seattle or SF Bay Area some sessions may be scheduled in person. Four Sessions: $765 (save $135)

Developing Managerial Presence or New Manager Coaching

Have you’ve been promoted and looking to develop your confidence and skills?  Many people are successful leaders who stay true to their values and individuality. Learn how to show up in your own powerful, professional way. I’ve worked with dozens of new managers and experienced managers work through common and unique challenges of the role.

Four or six coaching sessions with unlimited email support. Sessions will be conducted by video chat or telephone, or in the Seattle or SF Bay Area some sessions may be scheduled in person. Four Sessions: $765 (save $135) / Six Sessions: $1149 (save $201)

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. This type of coaching series includes “Core Communication” – an approach for talking through topics that might have seemed impossible to approach in the past and mindful awareness about what is getting conveyed to others. We come from the point of view that “the meaning of the communication is the response that you get.” Communicating from the right mindset can revolutionize your relationships.

Six coaching sessions over twelve weeks with unlimited email support. Sessions will be conducted by video chat or telephone, or in the Seattle or SF Bay Area some sessions may be scheduled in person. Six Sessions: $1149 (save $201)

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.

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 it feels like no one but you knows you are faking it. Imposter Syndrome is a common topic in articles and blogs – and if you are feeling like an imposter, that is something that can be coached through. Leave Imposter Syndrome behind and get in touch with the authentic, emotionally available leader you want to be.

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, SVP of Engineering, Cloudmark
