  • Get Unstuck and Clarify Your Career


    This program is designed for college graduates and mid-life career changers feeling stuck, burnt-out, and needing a clear “Why” to start the day.  According to Gallup, most career satisfaction comes from who you are with, rather than what you do.  This program dives deeply into both, and the “how” and the “why” of your day.  When you combine self-awareness with up-to-date knowledge about the world of work, you will make informed career decisions that result in meaningful career development outcomes.  You will get unstuck and be able to move forward with a clear plan leading to satisfying results.

  • Self-Leadership

In other words, this is for anyone who wants to be an effective leader: a leader of themselves and others. Participants will gain awareness of how their belief systems and emotions drive their life. Furthermore, they will understand how their perceptions are influencing the results they’re creating.

Why Career StoryBook Works

Career Storybook is a community of professional career coaches and counselors working with teams pursuing a common mission. We offer a collection of courses, activities, and success groups to take you from zero to happily employed. Relationship-based learning using reflective activities beats doing it on your own any day.

Career development can be self-directed (‘free’) or with a career coach (‘expensive’). We use an online group-based model that focuses on your needs and goals. Career Coaching is an investment in yourself. Career Storybook makes that investment accessible.

Personalized Learning

Our programs develop you as a person, a professional, or citizen while meeting your individual goals and interests. We offer personally meaningful learning experiences, and what is meaningful is engaging. And what is engaging has a deeper and more long-lasting impact.

Small Group Coaching

All our courses and groups have limited enrollment to ensure you get the attention you need and to foster trusting relationships necessary for you to risk growing. Mutual accountability drives creativity, problem-solving, and productivity. Coaches provide guidance while your group sustains your attitude and altitude.

Blended Delivery

We use the best of both learning mediums: online self-paced programs provide you the flexibility of time and place while saving travel and costs. Face-to-face or video meetings enable complex conversations, rewarding activities, and relationship development.

Interactive Programs

When you apply your new knowledge, skills, and perspective to interactive projects, you deepen your learning, your engagement, and have some good fun too. We use a variety of strategies: Problem-based learning, role plays, case studies, gamification, and fictionalization.
