Cracking the Career Code

Your Private, Tailor-Made 1:1 Career Coaching Program

They say it’s never been a better time to be a professional woman.

We have rights, we have benefits and companies seem to be making more of an effort when it comes to diversity (even if it’s just for optics…).

So why is the Equal Pay Gap and other statistics showing a stagnation or even decline when it comes to women blazing up the career ladder?

Because it’s still hard. And for a lot of us – lonely.

Based on my own journey as an ambitious career climber for 10 years in media and technology companies along with the conversations that came with other women during that time as well as all the women I’ve worked with over the last year, I’ve seen a pattern.

And that is that a lot of us are looking for the HOW…

HOW do I navigate the male dominated company I work with to get the jobs I want AND the pay I deserve?

And when we know the how… We freeze.

Because for a lot of us, the strategy to gett o the top goes against every thing we’ve been taught NOT to do in school, in our families, by society and by pop culture.

While all the men around us have learned the same thing and react when they see women behaving differently (hello, unconscious bias!).

I get it. I’ve been there.

Which of these blocks have been holding you back from reaching the next level in your career?

  1. Time… I seems like your life is living you rather than the other way around and you end up working reactively, not helping your career at ALL.
  2. Procrastination… Because watching the newest season of the Bachelor is many times more fun than cringing while updating your LinkedIn profile.
  3. Self-doubt… You’ve thought about talking to your boss about that next step, but you secretly wonder if you’re really ready and worry about being able to handle the work on a more senior level.
  4. Overwhelm… As soon as you start googling what it takes to move up in your career the 111,063,487 Google results that come up just don’t help.

If any or all of these are holding you back, that’s totally normal.

We have this idea that the career climb (especially for women!) is long, hard and miserable and requires us to put in long hours and go to awkward networking events where we have to suck up to people we don’t even like…

But it doesn’t have to be like that.

If you feel stuck and overwhelmed over how to move forward in your career, you just haven’t had the right system in place letting you get to that next step not only once, but over and over in your future.

When you have these strategies in place and start working them, amazing things will start to happen…

Cracking The Career Code is a 3 month coaching program to help you make progress and gain momentum towards your career goals.

Not even sure what they are? That’s fine. We’ll work on that, too!

I’m here to guide through the journey you’re about to take in your specific company and industry.

PRAISE FROM CLIENTS

“Having been here herself, Anna gets where I want to go and she knows what I need to do to get there.

Over the last few months, I’ve gotten rid of a lot of insecurities I had. I feel a lot less fear and I’m more assertive.

She helped me through a negotiation process where I feel like I didn’t deserve the money I was planning on asking for. Now there is no doubt in my mind. Getting to that point mentally to know that I’m worth it and that I can ask for. It was a life changer.”

-Elianne, 28, Manager in a start-up

“I researched quite a few career coaches before deciding to work with Anna. I was drawn to her no-nonsense, action focused approach as well as her having a real business background compared to others coming from HR or psychology.

“I’m super enjoying the bootcamp. And I think I’m way ahead of where I thought I would be when I signed up. I’ve had conversations I never thought I would have. And I’ve reached out to people I never would have approached before. Also I’m less apprehensive about meeting new people now.”

So how does it work?
