Welcome to Career Success for Women!
Dissatisfied with your work?
Good at your job, but don't really enjoy it?
Stifled by an environment which feels hostile or doesn't value you or your contribution?
In between jobs because someone else decided it was time for you to make a change due to an organizational restructuring or industry shift?
Dreaming of your ideal career, doing something you love?
Imagining what it would be like to be your own boss?
Unable to be your true self in your job or in your leadership role?
If so, you are not alone! Unfortunately, the average employee in the US today spends less than 5% of their day doing the part of the job they love and do well! Can you believe it? Most people really DO spend 95% of their time being unhappy at work! In addition, the typical employee will change jobs every two to three years due to organizational and industry changes, so being "in between jobs" is now a normal part of life!
If you are interested in exploring ways to love your work, start a business you enjoy, enhance your leadership skills, or feel strong and powerful in a hostile work environment, I would like to personally invite you to join me, and other interesting women from around the country, in exciting, dynamic, and effective online, webinar-based programs which will give you the tools, techniques, and strategies to love your work and your life!
For over 25 years, as a Manager, Executive, Business Owner, Professional Speaker, Career & Business Coach, and Corporate Trainer, I have had the privilege of working with tens of thousands of individuals, teams, organizations, and communities. And trust me, I have personally experienced, observed, or heard it all....every kind of workplace situation imaginable!
As a result, I have created these programs to share with you the key strategies which I have successfully used to address the many challenges I have faced in my own professional life and which have supported my clients in achieving success in theirs, as well!
I hope that you will join me! I would love to hear your story and support you in transforming your life!

Don't Let the Bullies Get You Down!
Strategies to effectively cope with workplace bullies!
Unfortunately, bullying behavior in the workplace is very common today! Many women are surprised to learn that it is even more prevalent in service organizations (particularly those providing human or social services) than in product-oriented companies. In fact, you may be working in a hostile environment without even realizing it!
"Overt" tactics are most common (i.e., yelling, critical comments, negative feedback, etc.). But the most destructive forms of bullying are "covert" (i.e., not sharing important information with you, excluding you from relevant meetings, putting up obstacles to your success or sabotaging your efforts, etc.).
Even more troubling, since bullying is designed to gain or maintain power and control, workplace bullies often target the person on the team perceived as the most powerful or threatening to the bully's power.
In this program, you will learn effective strategies to maintain your own sense of power in a hostile work environment and take control of your life and your future!
