What Drives Success?
Clarity. Attitude. Direction. Preparation.
I work with individuals like you: senior managers and C-level executives to help you stand out in the market place. To do this, you need to have Clarity about the value you offer to the work world - what do you do well? How is your Attitude? You want to be viewed as capable, confident and competent - never arrogant. Are you clear about your career Direction? Do you know which opportunities to pursue and how to do it? And are you Prepared to confidently present yourself in writing and in person? Addressing these questions is what I do for my clients.
Are you ready to run your own company?
Are you in a high risk startup and getting tired of the pace and constant pressure?
Have you been laid off and want to take stock of next steps?
You are at the top of your career but things may not be going the way you planned. Or maybe your life circumstances have changed. Now might be the time to think through your next move rather than just do it.
Ask yourself: What’s important for me to have in my next position? What does quality of life mean to me?
During our time together we will address all these issues so that you emerge with a clearer understanding of your motivations, your professional aspirations, and what kinds of job situations will allow you to thrive.
Have you plateaued and wonder about a new company or new career?
Are you getting passed over for promotions and don't know why?
Do you want to move from a specialist to a management position and not sure how to do that?
You have made significant progress in your career so far but you want more. Maybe that means changing companies or careers.
You might want to take a closer look at your management and leadership style and be willing to make changes.
My job is to give you an objective look at how you come across and then make specific suggestions that will get you where you want to go in your career.
Why am I qualified to help you move forward in your career?
What I do in Standout Strategies is based on my 25+ year career as a consultant and employee to Fortune 100 companies, start-ups, foundations and nonprofits. My focus has always been in executive education and marketing strategy.
Now I use the same marketing principles I used with these organizations to help individuals create marketing strategies for themselves so they can succeed in their careers.
I’ve worked for decades at the C-level and with senior management, including the CEO of Gulf Oil, the COO at McDonalds, multiple executive directors of nonprofits, and presidents of colleges. LinkedIn has chosen me as one of their career and resume professionals in their ProFinder program. I understand the issues you face and will give you an objective, business-oriented look at how you come across.
