Modules Overview

The ACT Coaching Intensive curriculum is divided into four key modules.  Each successive module builds on the previous content and learning.

Module 1: Building Self-Awareness & Your Career Vision

Congratulations and welcome to the ACT Coaching Intensive!  You’ve taken the most important step towards building the career of your dreams: you’ve committed to your career transformation journey. 

Module 1 is all about creating the vision for your most amazing career imaginable.  You’ll build the foundation for career transformation through exploring the dynamics that have kept you stuck, learning the tools to bust through your blocks and build momentum, and building the self-awareness needed to get in touch with what you truly want in your next career chapter.

In Lesson 1.1, we set the foundation for your career journey by beginning your self-exploration journey.  At this point, you’re at an inflection point in deciding how to proceed.  Lesson 1.1 honors this important phase by preparing you for your journey.  We’ll set your intentions for the program and increase your self-awareness through completing a series of assessments that measure your interests, passions, strengths, and personality patterns.  You’ll also begin the visualization process for your most amazing career imaginable, which we’ll return to throughout Module 1 as your career vision comes into sharper focus.

Most of my clients come to career transformation coaching because they feel stuck in their current careers.  They want to move forward to something new, but they don’t know how.  In this lesson, we explore the 3 most common reasons that people get stuck in careers they’re unfulfilled by, and discuss strategies for breaking the inertia so you can build forward momentum toward a career you love.

In this lesson we’ll review the likely reasons you’re still searching to discover what you’re longing to do. We examine what career purpose actually is versus what you may think it is.  We’ll discuss the real issue with discovering it: you may have been searching for the wrong thing in the wrong way.  We review the ways many women actually find their career purpose (note: it’s not what you think it is) so that you can jump start your own discovery process.

In this lesson, the tools for finalizing the first draft of your career vision will be deployed so that we can move forward into the research and decision-making phase. Using the outputs from the first 3 lessons of Module 1, you’ll connect with your intuition and deploy discovery journaling, vision boarding, and deep inquiry to get the best version of vision down on paper and begin designing the steps for bringing it to life.

Module 2: Tools to Support You on Your Journey

Going through a major life change, such as a career transformation, requires a robust toolkit for navigating the inevitable challenges and opportunities that arise along the way.  In Module 2, you’ll learn about the practices, mindsets, internal states, in addition to learning some practical tools, to best support you on your journey.

In this lesson, we build on the Module 1 work by disclosing five of the most common myths about our true nature that may be keeping you from moving forward with your dream career.  We’ll go over the five practices you can do every day to align with your authentic self and cultivate the conditions to facilitate your career visioning and implementation process.

Lesson 2.2 orients you to the creative process you’ll be in as you transform your career.  After all, perhaps nothing you do in this lifetime will be more creative than envisioning your most amazing career imaginable and then bringing it into form.  Understanding the inner works being in a creative process will help you navigate the dynamics that arise, dynamics like resistance, your inner critic, and self-doubt.

Here we explore one of the best ways to create momentum and sustainable action for transforming your career: building the positive energetic states to help you feel good in your life and body.  It’s from this state that you’re best able to define and implement your dream career and tap into your inner knowing which will guide you forward on your path.  We’ll discuss how common states of fear, anxiety, and overwhelm block you from reaching your highest potential, and how cultivating better feeling states is one of the best things you can do to prepare for your career change.

Module 3: Navigating the In-Between Phase

In this phase of your career transformation journey, the excitement of a new career chapter is often accompanied by resistance and doubt about whether things will work out.  In Module 3, we begin the process of establishing the structure you'll need to support you in moving through this challenging phase as you begin to research your preliminary career vision.

In this lesson, you’ll be introduced to the life transition process, its importance in human development, and the critical role it plays in your personal growth and career transformation.  We explore the common beliefs many of us hold about this essential life phase that cause us to resist leaning into it. We’ll discuss how to expand your belief system to support you with embracing your own transformation process.

When we go through major life changes, we find ourselves our own Hero’s Journey.  At this point of the journey, we may find ourselves in the Void, the in-between place where we’ve left behind aspects of our selves and our lives, but the endgame is not yet known.  Understanding and normalizing the Hero’s Journey, and devising strategies to get through it, are key to successfully navigating career transformation.

Throughout the transformation process, you’ll confront aspects of your shadow self, the parts of you that are kept below the level of consciousness but govern your behaviors in an attempt to keep you safe.  In Lesson 2.3, we’ll more deeply explore the aspects of your shadow self, and learn to work with them so that they no longer keep you from moving forward with building a career you love.

Module 4: Planning & Implementing Your Dream Career

Module 4 is the culmination of the ACT Coaching Intensive, where we bring together your past experiences, current insights, and future desires to plan and implement your dream career.  We’ll use industry tools, personalized coaching, and group support (ACTPlus participants) to guide you forward with planning and implementing your targeted career.  Together we’ll identify the internal and external changes needed to move you forward in your new direction, step by step.

In Lesson 2.4, we bring together all the learnings from Modules 1 through 3 to help you understand and build a Transformation Mindset to get you on your way with executing your dream career.  We’ll discuss the key aspects of this mindset and how it leads to success.  We discuss setting up incremental actions to begin the process of forward momentum to start bringing your dream career to life.

You’ve now completed all of the legwork to plan and design your path to implement your dream career.  Lesson 4.2 is all about consolidating the outputs from all the work you’ve done in the program, and translating it into a customized roadmap for building the career of your dreams.

Using the output from Lesson 4.2, we will now develop an approach for executing your career blueprint.  This will include both short- and long-term actions to fully realize your dream career.  We’ll discuss skills you need to develop, building a customized network that will guide you on your journey, and the plan to address obstacles that come up along the way.

Graduation

Congratulations on completing the ACT Coaching Intensive!  At your graduation session, we’ll review your life-changing insights and breakthroughs, and discuss the ways you’ll stay connected to this work so you have the ongoing support you need to stay the course.

Things occasionally come up that require clients to drop out of the ACTPlus program unexpectedly.  If you’re unable to continue your participation due to an unexpected emergency or unforeseen financial event, you have two choices: 1) discontinue participation, and you’ll be given a prorated refund for the remaining time in the program (you can choose to complete the program with me individually at a later date), or 2) you can join a later cohort and restart the program from the beginning to ensure continuity with the group at no additional cost (pre-approval required).

Career transformations require deep inner work in order to make the lasting inner and outer changes required to facilitate the desired changes and forward progress.  The lessons take time to absorb, practice, and integrate into daily life. Please see the ACT Coaching Intensive Course Modules for an overview of the topics covered in the program.

For the ACTPlus program, the approximate weekly time commitment is 3 hours; for the ACTIndividual program, the approximate weekly time commitment is 2 hours.

If you’d like to find out if ACT is right for you, you can schedule a 45-minute, no obligation discovery call, where you’ll undergo an assessment/Q&A before being accepted into either the ACTPlus or ACTIndividual program to ensure you’ll benefit from this work.  In this session, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and get really comfortable that ACT is right for you.  I want you to leave ACT being 100% satisfied with the outcome, and the best way to do that is to ensure that we both feel comfortable about moving forward. If we determine that ACT isn’t right for you, I’ll refer you to other resources that may be able to help you with your particular circumstance.

Absolutely! ACT is designed for ambitious women from all work circumstances, whether you’re currently employed, unemployed, retired, or working in the home.  The only requirement is that you’re motivated and committed to engaging in the deep work required for meaningful career transformation.
