Career Coaching & Personal Brand Advice

Having coached hundreds of people into success and through new jobs at every level, I understand that career development is never-ending. This comprehensive course has some of my best advice on how to manage your career at every stage. Included in InPower Free and Essentials  memberships.

Advice for every stage of your career

Over the years coaching people to success in leadership roles, new management responsibilities and job searches I've been asked many of the same questions many, many times! This program reflects my best advice for the most common questions I receive at every career stage.

Get access to this comprehensive library of advice for every stage of your career. This collection of tips and examples is packed full of career advice, and you don't need to take it all in at once. You can complete any sections that are applicable to your current needs, and revisit this course as your situation changes. Here are the topics we'll cover:

  • Building Your Personal Brand: The best way to build a career you love is to create a reputation built on both your past accomplishments and future potential. Get intentional about your personal brand to attract new opportunities, build your influence and position yourself for your next big thing. 
  • Leading and Managing Teams: It's not enough to tell people what to do. To lead your team to success, you need to engage their talent and earn their loyalty. Become a transformational leader to get the best out of your team, and out of yourself.
  • Managing Workplace Stress: When you're suffering from workplace stress and vulnerable to difficult people, you can't play at the top of your game. Develop the emotional intelligence skills that will help you create a strong personal brand while also helping you balance work-life demands.
  • Career Planning: Feeling restless at work is a good sign it's time to get intentional about your future. Becoming proactive about your career will ensure that you make your next move at the right time, in the right way, to get the job of your dreams.
  • Looking for a Job: Looking for job is like ordering something online, right? Nope. The best jobs aren't online and when you know how to find them, you can have your dream job in no time.
  • Interviewing & Offer Negotiations: A good interview and offer negotiation can increase your lifetime income by tens of thousands of dollars. A bad interview can put your dream job farther out of reach. Here are tips to help you prepare to interview and negotiate with confidence.

How it works: Dive into the section most "up: for you right now. Take the advice to heart. Come back again in the future to peruse other topics that interest you when the time is right.
“I reach out to Dana whenever I have a big decision or a big career move to make. She has an uncanny way of always helping me tap exactly the right thought, perspective or belief within me to achieve the next stage of my career success. She recently advised me on making the biggest move of my career. With the confidence she helped me find inside myself I landed not only the job of my dreams, but the salary I deserve.”

“I reached out to Dana when I was between jobs- I had just left one position before having another lined up. Ms. Theus gave me the encouragement and (more importantly) the guidance I needed to make this situation work to my benefit.
She went above and beyond what I was expecting, and her advice gave me a clearer idea of what my career goals were and how to best pursue them. I would recommend her to anyone in need of guidance and direction in their careers. 
I ended up in a new position that was both higher in compensation and better suited to my career goals. I give Ms. Theus much of the credit for this.”
Daniel Saba, MBA Candidate & Army Officer
