Are you a professor(*) struggling with the following?

01

You’re in the early or mid-stages of your career worried about burnout, a lack of balance, and an ever-expanding to-do list.

02

You want to create sustainable work habits, not suffer through all-nighters, writing sprints, or bootcamps.

03

You want to create a career you love and the impact you desire, not suffer through a job for a paycheck.

(*)Professor is a catch-all term. Tenure-track, tenured, adjunct, sessional, soft-money, research-focused, etc. All are welcome and if this speaks to you, this is FOR you!

Key outcomes

Discover FLOW and find ease, rather than struggle

You're burned out because of all the demands placed on your time and energy.

Getting into the Flow state increases your productivity and reduces stress.

Know that your efforts are worth it because you're connected to your purpose.


Design habits that work for you

You have a planner or calendar and it contains hour after hour of interruptions to your work, commitments to other people, and obligations that pull you in multiple directions.

You'll streamline and focus your planning system (or create one!) to represent your priorities.

Articulate a career vision and purpose to guide you

Develop a litmus test for opportunities, costs, rewards, and risks in your career. This focuses your time and attention, saves you energy, and reinforces joy!

Decisive prioritization!

If the opportunity isn't a clear HECK YES, then it is likely a HELL NO! Create a system to eliminate waffling in uncertainty!

PhD, CPCC, PCC

I have been an academic coach for five years, working with academics one-on-one to help them identify and meet their career goals.


In this course, I am taking the key foundational steps I provide for all of my one-on-one clients and putting them together in an accessible, cohort-based course that gives you the best possible foundation for career planning, career decision making, and productivity.


Not only will you learn key wellbeing and productivity strategies, you'll learn and practice them together, with other smart, dedicated, cool people who want academic life to be fun and rewarding.


Before I became a coach, I was an adjunct professor, a visiting professor, a tenure-track then tenured professor, Dean's project coordinator, and a Learning and Professional Development Coordinator -- all in higher education.


In addition to my Ph.D. in German Literature, I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach with CTI, and a Professional Certified Coach through ICF, and a certified Positive Intelligence coach.
