Step 1: Assess & Focus
Take personality and behavioral assessments to identify where to target your time and energy for the highest payoff.
Reflect on the gap between where you are now to where you want to be. Plan how to maximize your strengths and build out areas for improvement.
Step 2: Do the Work
Read, listen, and reflect.
Find opportunities to practice. At the end of the day, without taking action – doing that thing that feels hard – you will not succeed.
You will get clear, timely, and objective feedback on the changes you’re making. Course correction as needed.
A sounding board. Devil’s advocate for key decisions.
Deadlines, individualized objectives, and accountability
Step 3: Measure & Celebrate
Acknowledge the progress you made! Notice where you were at the beginning of the journey and where you are now.
Celebrate and embrace your achievements! Enjoy your career adventure.
Book the strategy session if you know directionally what you want but need help mapping out how to get there. This is not ideal for someone who does not know what they want and needs more (self)discovery. In that case, coaching might be more appropriate.

This information will also allow me to learn more about you and prep for the session.

We will work together to create an action plan to bring you closer to your goal. What we will do:
Step 3: Follow-up (1 hour)

"Irina did an amazing job with me! She definitely love what she does and she is only interested in helping you and making you grow into a better, more self actualized individual. I loved working with her and I am still amazed by how much progress I had only through phone conversations! Thank you so much Irina for your help! "
"Irina is an expert in her field and an amazing coach! I’ve had the opportunity to build a relationship with Irina over the past year and it has had such a positive impact on me, both professionally and personally. She’s a thoughtful listener, she’s easy to talk to, and she provides extremely valuable insights. I can’t thank her enough for the positive influence she’s had on my life. She’s brought fresh ideas and new perspectives to my career goals. I highly recommend working with Irina if you’re looking for a dedicated, effective, and knowledgeable coach who can help you reach your career goals!"
"I feel so fortunate to call Irina a coach and influence in my life. From our first call, I felt an instant connection with her. She is intelligent, personable, and a straight shooter. Irina has many strengths, but one I personally appreciate is her constructive feedback. She is honest and kind and will continue to work with you until you feel confident. And one more thing: from someone who tends to overthink things, Irina brings simplicity and a clear plan of action to my projects and pursuits. So thankful to have her as a coach!"
"Irina has been instrumental in my growth as a leader and most importantly as a person. I have not had such positive impact on my life from one individual until I met her. She was able to quickly diagnose the areas of improvement, devise a plan, and continuously reinforce with patience and empathy. I grew exponentially as a leader under her mentorship. If you are looking to grow your career or be a better leader I highly recommend to have Irina by your side."
"I met Irina during the start of my pivot journey. At that time, I didn't realize I needed a coach, until she started asking me the questions that I was too afraid to ask myself. She challenged me in a way that was exactly what I needed at the moment: beyond my comfort level, but always in a safe space. She helped me see my options differently, not by telling me what to do, but encouraging me to unconstrain my thinking, to take small steps today towards a larger goal. Irina, thank you. You were such an impactful part of the journey I've been on. You are an inspiration to me as a continue my own coaching practice."
"I started working with Irina a few months ago and I can attest that she is exceptional!! I wholeheartedly recommend Irina for a career coach. She is very thorough, detailed and listened to my goals, wishes and desires very carefully and customized her advice based on them. She started out with a few assessments that allowed me to understand myself better, from a professional and personal standpoint. I found myself at a crossroads in my career and did not know which way to go, and because of Irina’s help I was able to ask myself the right questions and explore what I really wanted to do. It turns out that within only a few weeks of working with her, I landed a great new job and I have more confidence in my managerial skills than I ever thought possible.
After each of our coaching sessions, I felt so energized and excited about all the new possibilities that she made possible. And she also made sure to give me “homework” to keep me on track and push me out of my comfort zone. I feel like Irina was able to bring out the best in me and I am looking forward to continuing to work with her in the future and discover new “highs” in my professional and personal life. Irina is a career coach, but I find her advice so beneficial in my personal life as well, I feel so much stronger and happier since I started working with her. I cannot recommend her high enough!"
"Irina is very personable and will structure plans based on your needs. She is flexible and goes above and beyond to check in on you and offer support."
"I had a series of sessions with Irina that helped me navigate a new leadership role in my company. She has a thoughtful, warm, and goal-directed approach. I would highly recommend working with her!"
