Let's Get Strategic with Your Professional Journey.

Welcome to this 9-Week program designed to help you move forward on your professional journey with intention and confidence. As a mid-career or later career professional, manager, senior manager, executive, entrepreneur or solopreneur, you have already created a track record of experience and achievement. 

Accidental Career Progression? Tired of being reactive?

Unfortunately, too many professionals feel that there's been too much accident to their career trajectory and not enough intention and vision. And too many are fuzzy about their professional value.

In this program, we focus on the building blocks and strategic levers of your professional journey.

We are going to start turning you into a product manager or producer of your career so that you can identify and pursue your next professional step with intention and confidence. 

  • You will re-frame how you view your "career" and discover your powerful why
  • You will elevate your understanding of the market 
  • You'll identify your next step pathway
  • You'll use frameworks to systematically level-up your market power
  • You'll gain a stronger appreciation and clarify of your unique professional assets and your target markets
  • You'll go deep on personal marketing and levelling up your marketability

If you're reading this, I suspect that you're looking for some form of change or improvement in your professional life.

And that's great news. You see, we're never done managing our professional journey until we decide it is time to step-off the road.

The first ingredient is that spark of intention, a positive or negative charged energy that is causing someone to take action. When clients show up at the Bold Career Project, their reason for walking through our door is one of the following:

  • Urgent response to an "event": (an internal promotion opportunity, a lay-off, a key decision they need to make)
  • A desire to make a change that's either defined (help me get from here to there), or undefined (help me figure out X)
  • Energy around a thing / state that the careerist has decided to pursue
  • A Quest to understand their value and fit in the marketplace and what's possible
  • Determination to level-up, play a bigger game, get promoted, move up the ranks.

What they all have in common is that WORK is required ON their career. Not in.

The "IN" part is you doing your job as manager, executive, consultant, business owner or other mid-career professional.. 

The "ON" part is everything else.

The problem is most people ignore or only sporadically (reactively) work on the "ON" part. It is the equivalent of only exercising for a short-time after you've been injured. 

What's required is not a focus on tactics. You need to address the core building blocks of your career.

I elevate the career conversation from the common language of resumes and interviews to more powerful, strategic concepts about your professional journey, market power and how to design a more fulfilling career.

Ready to Take Your Next Professional Step with Confidence?

Remember, this is an active program. To get results (increased clarity, confidence and control, decreased risk, more direction, and a higher-level of awareness and skill on how to be the driver of your career), you need to commit and dive-in.

Also, this program is specifically designed for experienced professionals. You could be an executive or senior manager. Or be in your mid to late 20s with a number of years of professional experience looking to better navigate the years ahead.  

If this fits, FANTASTIC! We want to have you as a participant in this program. 

Here's a sneak peak selection of the program modules from the last run of the program March-May 2020.

Define Why & Path

Re-Frame & Elevate

Define Your Value

Base Strengthening

Market Promise

Embrace Marketing

Execution Strategies

Accountability

When you enrol in the program, you'll experience ...

Strategic Insights

Like it or not, you are seller (and buyer) in a marketplace for skills, expertise and value creation. We will raise your awareness of the market, the drivers you can exercise, and your influence over your professional journey.

Powerful Reflection

As a seller (and buyer) in the marketplace, you must understand and manage you - the "product." Who are you professionally? What is important to you? And where are you going? 

Self-Assessments

Assess your career management strengths and weaknesses, your current Risks and Opportunities, your benchmark market power and professional relationship index.

Accountability

The problem with working "ON" your professional journey is that it doesn't feel urgent. Until you've lost control. And then you're in crisis mode. Let's stop that right now.  In the program we will hold ourselves (and hopefully, each other) accountable.

Conversation & Community

You can go through this program without engaging with others. We hope though that you'll enter into discussions, share insights and learnings and provide and receive support. It enriches the experience for you and the group.

Tangible Action

There will be enormous value in the learning, assessment and reflection described above. We want to take it a step further and get you to make tangible and valuable real world actions to "level-up."
