Coaching for Individuals – Is your future still “to be determined”?

Ever feel like you’re waiting for your life to happen? If you’re like most of us, you may know where you’ve been but not where you’re going. That’s complicated by an ever-changing world of work that represents both risk and opportunity. You may find yourself wondering “What’s next? Is it realistic to seek fulfillment in my work and life or should I be happy to just get by?” We are here to help answer those questions.

Knowing your skills, values and organizational fit is key to strategic and effective career management. Along with ongoing self-assessment, understanding the internal/external marketplace and networking, coaching will help you stay on track. Whether you are looking for guidance in determining your next career move, practical assistance in conducting a job search, support after a job loss, or coaching to maximize work/life effectiveness and satisfaction, we can help.

Look through the service descriptions below and see which fits your career management needs; there’s more information on each individual coaching service page.

Executive Coaching

Day is an excellent coach, and I am lucky to have had her in my corner for several years. In that time, I grew into progressively senior leadership roles, transferred to the USA for a COO role, then back to Canada where my career has continued to develop. Throughout these career events, Day’s guidance and support have been incredible. She finds the right balance between formal coaching techniques and personal experience to keep me motivated and on track – and she does not hesitate to tell you things that you might not want to hear! Her objective feedback and straightforward style have been invaluable in helping me build the career I want.

If you are looking for an executive coach to help you succeed, Day is a great choice.

I have known Day professionally and personally for over 10 years. Day is a multi-talented executive career coach and human resources professional with a wealth of knowledge and experience.

Her calm and measured style of coaching is authentic, and she is good at identifying and communicating the unique strengths and capabilities of her clients.

I’m pleased to recommend Day to anyone needing support to achieve the next step in their career.

Day is very responsive and knowledgeable and helped me navigate the job search stage with my newly minted EMBA. She is thought provoking and gives good suggestions for reading/evaluation material to help you understand and be a part of the resume build.

Career Transition

Day was instrumental in my transition to a new industry. Using her deep understanding of industry needs and culture, she aided me in finding a career that is a true fit for me. Day has an uncanny ability to determine a client’s strengths and values and help them find an organization where these are needed assets. Day gave me an appreciation of the appropriate job search process as well as the means to grow and leverage my professional network to ensure my ongoing success. I highly recommend Day/2BDetermined and will seek her counsel again when I make my next step.

Career Guidance

Day Merrill provided valuable career guidance to me over the past year through telephone, email and Skype. She encouraged me to step outside of my self-imposed boundaries, despite my fear-based reluctance and resistance. She steadfastly demonstrated a cheerful and professional demeanor that guided me in my successful negotiation with more than one client. Beyond the coaching, she and her partner, Michael Locey, offered specific and practical know-how with proposal writing that resulted in good contracts. I recommend 2BDetermined regardless of where you may be physically located.
