Career Enrichment

In order to reach your professional goals you might find it helpful to consult with us. We can help you find ways to increase your effectiveness through improved communications and leadership. Observation, feedback, and concrete information will validate what you do well and may alert you to potential flaws in your leadership style. You may also learn important information about how others perceive you in relation to how you perceive yourself.

We can help you increase your comfort and confidence in:

  • Communicating effectively
  • Developing a professional work style and image
  • Fine-tuning your leadership or management skills
  • Balancing your work and home lives
  • Managing Your Team
  • Becoming more adept at office politics

Career-Related Counseling

If you are dissatisfied with your job, feeling bored, or unsure that it is the best match for your skills and interests, you might benefit from speaking with an objective professional who will help you identify the reasons you feel this way and plan a strategy to move forward. We can also refer you to a professional career counselor.
