Answers to Your Questions

Considering a partnership with Inspire Careers for your career coaching needs? Here are answers to some of the most common questions we receive. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, we’re just a consultation away.

How does Inspire Careers specifically support professional women in advancing their careers?

At Inspire Careers, we’re committed to supporting professional women with personalized career coaching and customized career management strategies. With over 15 years of executive coaching, industry-recognized leadership, and her own transformative career journey, Cathy Lanzalaco has designed programs to address the needs and aspirations of ambitious women and help them achieve more in less time than going it alone.

What is the Inspired Power Day, and who is it for?

The Inspired Power Day is a 4-hour intensive one-on-one session for mid-level to executive women looking to make a significant career leap. It’s perfect for those who are ready to move up (like a VP targeting SVP, EVP to the C-Suite, or senior manager aiming for a director position) but may not know how to articulate their value, negotiate their salary, or develop a strategic job search and interview plan. This package includes immediate assistance and action planning, salary negotiation strategies, job search and interview coaching, and bonuses like a professional reference guide and the Inspire Careers resource library access.

Can the Career Transition Coaching Program help me if I'm stuck in my job search or current role?

Absolutely. Our 6-week Career Transition Coaching Program is tailored for individuals who feel stuck and are unsure how to navigate their job search or transition to a new role. This program includes assessment calibration, professional branding alignment, job search strategy coaching, resume critique, LinkedIn optimization audit, and more, all aimed at mid-level professionals and up. You’ll also receive lifetime access to the Inspired Careers vault and a 50% discount on our digital library, helping you identify and land your next role and excel in it.

What makes the North Star Program unique, and who should consider it?

The North Star Program is our most comprehensive offering, a 90-day journey designed for high-achieving individuals seeking executive-level advancement and clarity in their career path. It includes personalized executive coaching, branding alignment, career clarity exercises, professional resume feedback, LinkedIn optimization, and much more. Participants also gain lifetime access to the Inspired Careers vault, an all-access pass to our digital library, the book “The Big Leap,” and exclusive networking opportunities. This program is ideal for those ready to explore their “zone of genius” and make impactful career moves, with the support of an executive confidant and access to a community of thought leaders and influencers.

How do I know which package is right for me?

Choosing the right package depends on where you are in your career and the level of support you seek. If you’re seeking immediate, intensive assistance to leap to the next level, the Inspired Power Day might be for you. Consider the Career Transition Coaching Program if you’re stuck and need structured support over a few weeks. For those looking for an all-encompassing, transformative career journey with extensive support and resources, the North Star Program would be the best fit. We recommend contacting us for a consultation to discuss your career goals and determine the best path forward.

Why should I consider working with an executive coach?

Working with an executive coach can provide you with personalized insights, strategies, and accountability to navigate career transitions, leadership challenges, and personal growth opportunities. It’s an investment in your professional development that can lead to significant advancements in your career.

What outcomes can I expect from these programs?

While specific outcomes depend on your goals and engagement, you can expect to gain clarity on your career direction, develop a robust action plan, improve your job search and interview skills, and enhance your professional branding. Our programs are designed to help you land your next role and position you for ongoing success and fulfillment in your career.

Where could the wrong turn take you?

Making the right career moves is crucial, especially in today’s economic climate. Without expert guidance, it’s easy to find oneself at a crossroads, facing challenges that could hinder professional growth and personal fulfillment. Here’s how the journey might unfold without the personalized support and strategic insight Cathy provides.

Stagnation in Career Progress

Remaining in a comfortable yet unfulfilling position might seem like the easy choice, but over time, this complacency can lead to professional stagnation and missed opportunities for advancement and personal development.

Underestimating Your Worth

Without being able to clearly articulate your value, there's a risk of consistently being underpaid or overlooked for promotions, affecting not only your career trajectory and earning potential but also your personal confidence and job satisfaction

Navigating Career Transitions Alone

Career changes are complex and fraught with uncertainty. With all the misinformation available, it's easy to make missteps that can delay or derail your transition to a more fulfilling role or industry.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. With Cathy’s expertise and the personalized support system at Inspire Careers, you can navigate your career path with confidence, making informed decisions that lead to growth, fulfillment, and success. Let’s transform potential pitfalls into stepping stones towards your ideal career.
