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.

  • 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. $899 Special Package.

Developing Managerial Presence

So you got promoted and you’re finding that managing is tough? You were one of the team and now you are the manager. It can feel weird to “be the boss now.” Many people are successful leaders who stay true to their values and individuality. Learn how to show up in your own powerful, professional way.

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.

Coaching For Coders

Looking for a coach that gets what working in a coder’s environment is all about? I’ve worked in technology since 1993 and I stay up-to-date about tech careers. You can just talk about your work without having to explain anything. If I have a question about a tool or technology I’ll curiously inquire about it. ICs and Managers welcome!

Four coaching sessions over eight weeks with unlimited email support. Sessions will be conducted in person in Seattle; by video chat or telephone in any other location. In the SF Bay Area? Some sessions may be scheduled in person. $649. (save $51.)

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. 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

Your startup having problems among the founders? You went into business with your fellow founders to create a company that is successful. Don’t let issues between founders be the death of your company! It’s possible to have meaningful, honest 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 team to help you build communication skills that work and last. Experience with pre-revenue and early funding companies.

Quarterly Retainer Package – 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 in person in Seattle; by video chat or telephone in any other location. In the SF Bay Area? Some sessions may be scheduled in person. Starting at $1500.*

*Every startup has different needs, we create the right program. Travel expenses billed separately.

Some sessions may be scheduled in person. $150/Session ad hoc coaching (must be in ICF training or ICF certified) (save $25/session)

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
