Be who you are and all you can be, transform where you are now to where you want to be. Dare to dream. Feel the excitement of taking control of your life by taking control of your career!
For over 20 years, Executive Coach and author Jean Erickson Walker has guided people through the twists and turns of their careers, assisting leaders, managers, leadership teams and mid/senior level professionals to be more successful in their current positions or seeking new opportunities.Jean spent years working in outplacement businesses witnessing the obstacles career transition created for individuals and organizations alike. Why did some companies seem to miss the mark, while others continued to expand? Why did so many leaders not understand their own communication styles were stifling their employees’ potentials?
Much too often, people become victims of the past, struggling to make changes to meet new challenges, failing to understand they are their own worst enemies, expecting too little of themselves, lacking the self-knowledge to be confident in decision making and interpersonal relationships.They learn skills and are bound to them, rather than exploring new options.They are stymied by age and experience in a culture enthralled by youth and technology.Jean teaches them how to combine their hard earned wisdom with innovation in order to lead the race to the future.
In 2000, Jean added author to her professional profile with the release of The Age Advantage: Making the Most of Your Midlife Career Transition, which is available at www.amazon.com and www.jeanericksonwalker.com. Publishers Weekly described her as, “Blunt, compassionate and effective.”
