Laura came to me wanting to make a bigger impact in her role at a big international bank. She was a Director level executive and had great relationships with upper management, poised for the next step. But no matter how hard Laura tried to make an impact, she kept running up against a wall.
It soon became clear that there was no alignment with her vision and the values of the company. She knew she needed an exit plan. But she was too scared to take the leap.
What if I don’t find another job? What if I have to take a pay cut? What if no one wants to hire me?
Through coaching, she finally left the bank and decided on taking six months off to enjoy time with her two small children, travel to Europe and just de-stress. But about two months into her sabbatical, she got a phone call. From her dream job.
Not only did she land her dream job with a salary increase, she also negotiated her start date at the end of her six month sabbatical. She and her family traveled to Europe (where I met up with her!) and she got to have some much deserved time off.
She got EVERYTHING she wanted, AND MORE!
Here is what Laura says about her experience working with Highest Path:
“I have had the opportunity to work with Highest Path for about a year and can say wholeheartedly that it has been transformational for my career path and personally. It has enabled me to gain a perspective which either I would have never learned, or would have taken me a long time to get to. Thank you for all you have done.”
But all this didn’t happen just by chance or by luck for Laura. This happened because she got clear on her values, defined what was truly important to her, and worked on her self-confidence and self-worth. She would have never taken the leap otherwise.
