Either way, you’re in good company if you feel called to give more of yourself professionally right now—and get more personal fulfillment while you do it.

In just six weeks, you’ll learn how to use our very different approach to developing your career—and find out how to truly own and give voice to your role as the central character in a powerful, universally known storyline that motivates you while attracting others. In the process, you'll unleash yourself onto your most authentic, meaningful and engaging worklife path with an updated career planning, job search or personal brand strategy that’s uniquely right for you.

Join us to discover a new, more empowered and energized sense of who you are and what you have to offer. 

Yes! Start Me Fresh!

In this six-week "bliss-based” group coaching program, we'll help you bring your “Who I am” together with your “What I do” so you can name, claim and activate a personal vision of success and contribution.

Dana and Cindy's approach to worklife bliss career planning taps you into your most genuine and accessible source of motivational energy. We combine a powerful personality survey system with an innovative blend of right- and left-brained coaching techniques for an entirely different, more authentic and engaging approach to developing yourself and your career. The result is a more energized you—a you who’s mentally, emotionally and energetically ready to bring your best self to work every day.

What's a "Bliss-based" Career Reset?

Can you find career bliss during a time of economic uncertainty, social unrest and pandemic-based upheaval? You absolutely can, because it’s not about bunny rabbits, fairy dust or continuous nirvana! Career bliss is a purpose-driven state of being that’s always available to you, throughout the ups and downs of your life or the world around you. 

In a story-based approach to human psychology, “bliss” is the process of finding, experiencing and sustaining a joyous lock step between who you are and what you do. It’s a way of engaging in your work and in your life with a commitment to being the person you’re most authentically meant to be, on the path most uniquely meant for you. It's the fastest and surest path to a worklife that lets your passion, gifts and contributions shine—and what’s more valuable in the the world right  now than people who are able to participate from a deep well of commitment and empowerment?

Here are Dana and Cindy's three key strategies for helping you find your own version of career bliss and energize your career with a fresh approach.

Honoring the Authentic You

In this empowering program, we’ve reverse engineered conventional career development wisdom by starting where other programs often end—helping you define and show up with a powerful sense of self before you decide what you’ll do or even why you might do it.  

If you feel like you’re hiding an important part of yourself at work, we’ll guide you along the authentic path to putting your best self out front!  Join us to take this very powerful step of defining and stepping into your most authentic and valuable self.  

Accessing Your Whole Brain

Our bliss-based approach to coaching stimulates both your logical and intuitive brains. This "left/right" brain framework gives you the opportunity to explore what energizes you creatively as well as how to communicate your value in ways that influences those around you. It also helps you take advantage of all of who you are—and discover that both “being” and “doing” are essential for a worklife of fulfillment and contribution. After the program you'll walk away with new "whole brained" tools for tapping your strengths and sharing them with the world.

Activating Your Narrative Intelligence

Narrative intelligence is the secret sauce of career bliss and this program! It’s an essential, differentiating professional competency that gives you something most other people don’t have—the ability to see, understand and respond to motivational patterns that unfold inside and around you, all the time (just like they do in great stories that all of us know). Running far deeper than basic “story telling” skills, narrative intelligence helps you tap into an intuitive human capacity to make meaning through a story-based framework—and become far more successful at narrating a powerful storyline for your work life.

"A Revelation"

The Worklife Reset process that Dana used to help guide me towards my authentic career story--highlighting my unique career character and story type--was a revelation. In the past, networking conversations felt like pushing a cheesy elevator speech. I now have the words, imagery and confidence when talking with potential clients about the value I bring to customer partnerships, and it's giving new energy to go after my career dreams.”
Jennifer V. Miller, The People Equation

"The Unifying Thread"

“This approach was exactly what I needed to bring together a previously incoherent vision of myself professionally. Before working with this system, I could see bits and pieces of what I wanted to express, but there was no unifying thread. Meeting the 12 story type characters allowed me to tell my story and share my message. This was the unifying thread that brought all the pieces together, and in a very compelling and authentic way.  I can even take ownership of an element I was trying to ‘get away from!'”  
Colette Davenport, CEO

"Have you ever heard the country western lyrics “looking for love in all the wrong places?” Like Cinderella I’ve been trying to wear a caretaker’s shoe, when my story type (and career character) is really an explorer seeking new trails to blaze. This thought provoking system has helped me to develop authentic communications beyond my wildest expectations. Clarifying and identifying with my story type has broadened both the possibilities and potential for career and business growth.”
Diane Coffee

"Dana and Cindy are masters of their game"

For years I had struggled with how to articulate my niche, and nothing felt ‘quite right’. Then I discovered the story typing system and it has given me exactly what I needed to clarify, name and claim what is important to me in my career and my business. No more ‘niching’!
Dana and Cindy are masters of their game and the practical, deep and meaningful work they share is like a breath of fresh air.”

When are the meetings scheduled?

Online materials and group discussions will open on September 10th.

We'll meet by Zoom on a weekly basis, Thursdays from noon-2pm eastern from September 24th to October 29th. 

Will this program help me find my purpose?

Yes! The story typing and narrative intelligence-based tools and exercises we'll share with you will help you identify the common theme of your life's purpose—and what it looks like at this point in your career development. When you're living in alignment with this deeply motivational storyline, your life and work will have greater purpose and meaning.

Will this program help me find a new job?

Yes! Finding your perfect job is the first step in the search for a job that authentically brings you meaning and satisfaction. This program will help you shape an inspirational vision of your perfect job, and why it's the ideal fit for you at this stage in your career. Whether your job search is now or two years from now, you'll find yourself more directed and focused on finding work that lights you up. 

You'll also receive support and bonus materials you can use to update your LinkedIn and resume, become more targeted in your networking and interviews. Whether you use these materials to look for a new job or just give your personal brand presence an uplift, you'll be better positioned to gain the right kind of visibility for your short- and long-term career and job seeking goals.

How much time does this take?

You’ll likely spend four hours a week on the program during our six-week time together. That includes attending a two-hour weekly Zoom session and spending a couple of hours on “homework” designed very specifically to move you forward with the most essential components of the program. You’ll also receive additional bonus materials each week that you can download to use at a future time or use as part of your preparation for our group sessions.

Will group coaching sessions be recorded?

Each online session will be recorded and available for seven days. If you miss a session you'll have seven days to view it. Recordings will not include breakout exercises, which are a significant value for the program. 

It's Time to Rewrite Your Story

There's probably a lot of uncertainty in your life and career right now, and maybe some ennui and restlessness, as well. When there's so much you can't control, it's empowering to take a step back to reset your goals and re-energize the way you show up in the world--with intention! 

With an updated career story you'll find more confidence and attract meaningful new opportunities—where your work right now or through the new opportunities you’ll feel ready to take on going forward.
