Leverage Your Passions to Fuel Your Career Search
Developing a strong self-concept, strengthening leadership skills, and pursuing your passion are essential to creating more positive outcomes in your job search.
We must proactively devise a system to develop and nurture our definition of self and replace the negative stories we have told ourselves that hold us back. If we isolate ourselves or cut short the journey to developing a strong concept of self, we can sabotage our most important opportunities in life and business, including being able to execute a successful job search.
Come and learn intelligent strategies to help you identify the leader you “must” become to help create the future you desire, versus the one that would come by default. For instance, LinkedIn’s talent research shows that today’s most in-demand skills weren’t even on the list three years ago.

Getting in Front of Fear
Christa Davis Coaching
We’ve all experienced stress, anxiety, and uncertainty at some point in our careers. However, many times, we struggle with these feelings in silence, believing that we just need to suck it up and work harder in order to be successful. The result: we judge, try to control every outcome, and can’t seem to shake a nagging sense of dissatisfaction. It is often fear that tricks us to remain stuck in this vicious cycle. The good news is that we can break out of fear-based habits to make choices that are in alignment with what we truly want!
Join career & leadership coach, Christa Davis, for a program on how to get back in the driver’s seat and in front of your biggest career fears. This workshop will reveal the sneaky ways that fear shows up in our lives, share powerful strategies to address it, and provide you with a fresh perspective on how to move forward in your career with authenticity and confidence.
