I’ll give you more updates soon–including why I’ve been silent–as well as inspirations and tips on your path to finding and living your career calling
In the meantime, I want to share a celebration.
Yesterday, for the first time, I had the honor of speaking on a French Enneagram panel virtually hosted in France by Cecile-Flora Lefevre. The Enneagram is a powerful transformation system that I use with my clients. On the panel, I shared–in French–my personal journey of transformation using the Enneagram.
I have spoken on countless English-speaking and/or American-based Enneagram panels led by internationally known experts–including Beatrice Chestnut, Uranio Paes, Ben Saltzman to name a few– but it was my first time sharing in French with fellow French and French-speaking Enneagram practitioners.
Bridging cultures and languages is part of my mission. It’s why I love supporting clients from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and countries.
What are you celebrating?
Comment below and let me know. I’d love to cheer you on.
Big or small, shared celebrations help you increase your well-being and become more magnetic to good in your life. It’s why this is the first thing I have my private clients do in our 1:1 sessions.
After 8 weeks of travel in France and Mexico, combining vacation and remote work, I’m back in my California office. Lots of new things are cooking in my work and life. I’ll share more soon.
In the meantime, I want to give a shout-out to my awesome clients, past and present.
Many of them are innovators who are called to forge new paths in the areas they care about, such as:
environment and climate change diversity and inclusion homelessness and hunger community services entrepreneurship and business design and art children and young adults education girls and women education real estate
and many more.
It’s an honor to help them uncover the impactful work they are here to do and make it a reality.
My clients’ visions are coming true and Covid did not stop them!
Lately, I’ve received many updates and celebrations from clients who are making their dreams come true. I’m getting so many of them that I can’t hardly keep up or share them all…
There are clients who have worked with me in 2020 during the pandemic.
The visions I helped them clarify during our coaching work are happening!
Here are a few of them: ✅ A director of marketing and communications with 20 years of experience and a passion for fashion just started an online fashion store—I will share it with you as soon as she gives me the green light—, has taken a few small business clients who need assistance with marketing and presentation coaching, and is experimenting working remotely with her husband, which is part of their dream lifestyle.
✅ A successful software consultant with 20 years of experience, initially depressed and feeling like a failure, was able to see his work in a totally new way. As a result, he grew quickly in his executive leadership role while embarking on a new career as a coach and trainer.
✅ A project manager with 12+ years of experience applied for the health coaching certification program she wanted and just made an offer on a house in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania where she moved with her husband to be closer to her family.
✅ An actuary turned data scientist living in San Francisco with her husband achieved her long-time desire to move back to England to be with family and friends and is getting closer to buying a house in London.
✅ A public relations and communications specialist, initially stuck, stressed, and demoralized in her work, became so clear about her strengths, true passions, and vision for her career through the coaching process that she was able to seize an opportunity for a new fulfilling career that came right in front of her. This work will allow her to fulfill her purpose of stewardship and keeping the legacy of the past for future generations.
All of these are visions we clarify together during the coaching process.
All of these clients started working with me 8 to 12 months ago in the midst of the pandemic.
Covid did not stop them!
If they did it, so can you.
Want to be next on the list? Or maybe someone you know (spouse, relative, friend, coworker) who is stuck in their careers.
I’ve 3 spots open for new private clients and I’m currently taking applications for these spots.
>> Apply here or forward this blog to someone who could benefit from the help.
It is for seasoned professionals and entrepreneurs who want to discover the next career they’ll absolutely love and the confidence to make it happen.
I look forward to being of service to you or someone you know,
P.S. This is what Ryan says about his experience working with me.
“After 20 years in the tech industry and 2 major depressions, I was finally ready to take seriously the fact that I didn’t love my work like supposedly people did. I had been successful in consulting, building a new offering from the ground up, creating a new organization around it and selling over $150M of new clients in ~3 years and yet I was depressed and felt like I was a complete failure.
Isabelle’s process of identifying the “personal blueprint” (focussed on the “authentic self”), using tools very different from the traditional Myers-Briggs personality typing, brought tremendous insight into aspects of my personality that were huge assets and strengths that I had previous taken for granted or barely noticed and which had really powered much my success. It also helped me to become comfortable with what didn’t come naturally to me in a way no other personal development work I’d ever done (StrengthsFinders, MBTI, etc) had been able to do. For the first time, I was able to take seriously the often extremely powerful feedback I had gotten from others and fully accept that the aspects of myself – loving working to serve other people, coaching, mentoring and charting ambitious visions for teams around me – that I had previously overlooked, undervalued or simply denied (thanks to long help beliefs from childhood about what I was and wasn’t) were very real and in fact powerful. This sent me on a journey of self-development that ended in not abandoning my career at all, but being able to see it in a completely new way. That has allowed me to access resources I din’t know I had and grow immensely and quickly in my executive leadership role while at the same time also embarking on a new career simultaneously.”
This is what my client said last week after several months of working together.
She had been looking for quite a while before working with me and could not find it.
I have heard that many times for the past seven years I’ve been in practice. My clientshad been looking and looking before working with me and could not find it.
Some clients even said they took a course with Simon Sinek—a well-known inspirational speaker and author of five books, including “Start With Why”—or listened to other inspirational speakers—such as Tony Robbins and Brendon Burchard— and they are still clueless about their “Why,” their true calling.
Then, they start working with me through my rigorous step-by-step process and they find it!
Listening to inspirational videos or taking a short online class is most often not enough to uncover your true calling and know with confidence this is it. This is why I created a dedicated, 1:1, step-by-step process to get there. And it works!
For the past seven years, I’ve helped hundreds of clients find their “Why.”
I’m not your traditional career coach. I help people who are ready to find their career calling—or their dream career—, not just a job.
Will 2021 be the year you find your “Why” and the career that aligns with it?
Imagine ending 2021 crystal clear about your calling and doing work you are passionate about. How would that feel?
I’d love to help you get there.
This is my calling, helping you find yours.
Are you ready?
Apply here if you want 2021 to be the year you find your Why.
To your brilliance,
P.S. Maybe you are clear on your “Why” already but know someone (friend, spouse, relative, co-worker) who can’t find it. Please forward this email to them.
In the midst of the stressful times we are experiencing in the US and worldwide, I want to continue bringing light and inspiration to you, while also acknowledging all the emotions and challenges you may be experiencing.
In these times, I encourage you to feel and welcome all your emotions, get supported in community, be gentle with yourself while continuing to celebrate life.
It’s why I want to share with you the success of some of my fabulous clients in 2020.
By courageously stepping into their career callings, they are making the world a better place for all of us.
