As a well-respected professional in my field at the peak of my career, I became stuck on a moving train or so I thought!
I was on top of the world in my dream job. Downsizing and organizational reprioritization lead to the disappearance of the dream job. In its wake, I was left with what appeared to be an acceptable alternative. Appearances can be deceiving. My work environment became toxic and unhealthy, to the point of dreading each day, experiencing health issues from stress, and avoiding the world as a way to manage the stress. I tried to make it work, I tried bending and flexing, I tried creating the world I wanted, and nothing was working.
I was at a crossroads. I had to create a path to a better future by taking a leap of faith. I jumped off the moving train and haven’t looked back. For me, this meant going back to school, making a career change, and reprioritizing my life. This was my path to being more authentic in my work and in my personal life. I am now doing work that allows me to bring my authentic gifts, talents, personality, and strengths with me each and every day!
What would your path look like?
I work with individuals who want to create a path towards their dreams, allowing them to be more authentically aligned. My approach is supportive, empathic, and collaborative. We work together to explore your current reality and create options that make the most sense for you. My goal is for you to experience greater satisfaction, peace, productivity, and success.
I have a Ph.D. in Psychology, specializing in workplace psychology. I have worked with individuals, teams, and organizations on selection assessment, employee development, team development, and career development. Individuals I work with have included those at the beginning stages of their journey all the way up to those reaching the pinnacle of their careers. Organizations I work with have included small companies, non-profit organizations, government entities, educational institutions, and large corporations in the U.S. and internationally.
I also hold several coaching certifications, including being a Board Certified Coach, a Certified Workforce Development Professional, and a Certified Professional Coach.
I look forward to collaborating with you! I invite you to schedule a free 30-minute consultation session to explore how we can work together: https://www.ilaraleadership.com/book-online.
