What questions to ask when you are ready for the next level

Do you find yourself at a crossroads?

Have you noticed feeling pulled toward making a more significant contribution, to be more involved in making strategic decisions in your role or function?

We've come to this realization, my clients included. We are ready to contribute at the next level of our capacity and potential. We yearn for more impact on the critical decisions within our companies.

In the same way that I guide my clients, I'd love to support you to figure out what to do next once you've arrived at this realization too.

When it happened to me, I had worked for about 25 years in financial services and technology and was in a place in my career when it was time to move on. I was ready to contribute to my fullest potential while meeting my needs and values. That decision to move on is what led me to my work today.

For you, it doesn't have to play out this way where you switch tracks or change fields as I did.

For you staying in corporate America and wanting a bigger purpose, I invite you to answer this question:

What do I need to do over the next 12 months to position myself to grow from where I am now into a role where I can contribute to my full potential?

Answering this question may not be easy. If it isn't, break it down into pieces.

What brings me alive? What gives me joy?

What am I good at that I can do with my eyes closed or learned that I can use to contribute at a higher level, to add more value to my company?

What type of work energizes me?

You are already adding value, but you know that you have more to contribute and, in the process, more value to add. If you find yourself in this spot, you're not alone.

Answering these questions will help you leap to that next level of purpose and potential.

Once you become more self-aware about how you want to contribute at the next level, creating the roadmap with the strategies to get there is key. If you need support in doing that, that's what we are here to help you do precisely.

Many of us, especially in our 40's and 50's, feel this pull--a desire to work while finding more meaning in it. It happens organically, and nothing is wrong. Everything is how it's supposed to be.

It helps my clients tremendously when they receive support and have a sounding board to help them think through a realistic action plan to position themselves and feel empowered instead of frustrated and disempowered. And when coaching my clients to gain this clarity and confidence, I see how they leap into action with a clear sense of what they're going to do and why it's crucial in their lives.

Easier said than done? Let's connect over a complimentary strategy session and explore your 12-month vision, your top challenges, and how you can move forward confidently to contribute at your next level. Please visit

Live with purpose, live with joy!
