Career Breakthrough
Bootcamp

The step-by-step system for showing up with leadership presence (even if you have a super stressful workplace)


Boost your energy, make a difference in your organization and finally break through the glass ceiling.

Career Breakthrough
BootCamp

The group program to learn how to show up  with a leadership presence that improves the energy in your workplace and gets you tapped for promotions, special projects & assignments.  

You've heard it before. 

"All you need to do to advance your career is..."

stand out.

speak up.

get noticed.


But that’s not easy when you get in your own head worrying about other people’s expectations.


You’re smart & accomplished, and you worked hard (and went into debt!) to get your graduate degree to be an expert in your field.  You've been working for a good decade and you have a solid reputation as a subject matter expert, because you always knock your projects out of the park. 

Your boss tells you how impressive your work is, and you feel good about your relationships with your colleagues. 

You’re ambitious and have a dream of rising to a VP role, but you STILL haven’t been promoted, and you’re not sure what went wrong.

Tell me if this sounds familiar

  • You make time for family, friends and yoga, but you lay awake at night because you worry you’ll get stuck in your current role and never get higher pay.
  • You know you have a killer resume, but you find yourself not quite believing you're the same person in that resume.
  • You have a good relationship with your boss  but you still can't stop your mind from going over (and over and over) even the tiniest mistake, wondering what your next performance review will say.
  • You do great work, but you struggle to prioritize and often feel overwhelmed, working long hours to make sure everything gets done, because you love getting “gold stars” & checking those achievement boxes off your to-do list.
  • You're utterly devoted to your family, but you feel guilty about applying for a promotion right now because you worry that you can’t become a leader while still getting home in time for dinner.
  • You keep on top of your work, but when things hit the fan, you find yourself pacing back and forth outside, out of breath from anxiety, because you wonder if this is when they figure out that you’re actually a total fraud.
  • You want people to take you seriously at work, but you don’t want to been seen as authoritative (hello, you don’t want to come across as a b****).
  • You know that you’re smart, capable and accomplished.

  • You know you have a TON of good qualities that would make you a great leader.
  • You KNOW that it’s time for you to FEEL that same confidence in EVERY professional situation.

Here’s what professional life will look like after the  Bootcamp.

Poised

You’re fully present in your personal in the evenings and on weekends because you'll know that things at work are under control.

Powerful

You'll speak up in meetings & take risks to advance your career to the next level because you'll know how to react when impostor syndrome creeps in.

Promoted

You’ll feel comfortable influencing others while staying true to your personality because you'll know how to tap into your strengths to solve the kinds of problems that get you promoted.

I know that it feels like you should read every leadership book, get someone to give you advice, or go back to school to get an MBA, second Master’s or even a PhD to advance your career.  

I felt that way too, thinking I needed another piece of paper to prove I was good enough to be a leader. 

Then I discovered that being a leader is more than learning theory in a classroom - it’s about showing up in the real world with YOUR unique leadership strengths.

I was tired of tipping from being either quiet and tentative, or overcompensating by using a voice that wasn't authentically mine.

Imagine this - you are in a high-power meeting, and you are calmly and accurately presenting three key points to the organization's top decision makers. You are mid-way through your first key point and one of your peers interrupts you, and states, "What Katherine is trying to say is....", and your peer begins to talk over you, and what he is saying is completely wrong.

What is your initial reaction, Do you want to go off on a tangent? Begin to speak louder, faster, and risk saying the same thing three different ways? Or perhaps freeze and then lose the attention of the room? All of the reactions are understandable, and likely to occur to many women in any meeting, on any given workday. These events occurred to me, and I was tired of tipping from being either quiet and tentative, or overcompensating by using a voice that wasn't authentically mine.

As a result of working with Liz, I have found my voice and built my self-confidence. I identified the "old stories" I had continuously told myself that had been holding me back. I have new habits that are now my success formula for preparing for meetings, and preventing and responding to interruptions.

I owe Liz a big "Thank You"! Working with Liz is a positive, exciting and rewarding experience. Liz is my trusted advisor!

This is why I created 

Career Breakthrough 
Bootcamp

An 8 week mindset coaching program to boost your energy so you can show up confidently with a presence that can't be ignored.


The Career Breakthrough Bootcamp is all about helping you show up like a leader in ANY professional situation so you can make a difference.


You’ll get rid of the stress and anxiety at work and instead get your career moving and finally break through the glass ceiling. 


I know it seems like you’re already doing everything possible and there’s not really much else to do but wait for your boss to notice your good work or get a degree that proves you’re ready to move up.

I was amazed at how quickly I was able to resolve some of my biggest challenges

I was professionally successful, with a loving partner and great friendships.

But I still felt conflicted inside, like I was trying to do everything well, so I couldn’t focus on what was most important.

Our sessions always lead to incredible breakthroughs, and I was amazed at how quickly I was able to resolve some of my biggest challenges.

I realized that it’s like having all the perks of a close friend or mentor who is rooting for you 100%, but who brings a third party perspective and who ONLY focuses on what YOU want.

Working with Liz, I felt shifts in my energy. I would almost describe it as stagnation breaking up and I am feeling lighter.

The moment I decided that I needed to work with a leadership coach, I was outside pacing and walking back and forth, almost out of breath from anxiety and stress. I realized how much the situation was having a psychological and physical effect on my person and knew I needed to get out of the situation.

Working with Liz, I felt shifts in my energy. I would almost describe it as stagnation breaking up and I am feeling lighter. It’s like yoga for the brain!

Now I’m feeling confident about my leadership, my boss has noticed and is expanding my role to take on more responsibilities!

Liz gave me my evenings and weekends back!

Before we worked together, I was overwhelmed - I was working a lot and was struggling to prioritize.

I had so much to do and sometimes felt paralyzed by it all.

My perfectionism meant I had a hard time delegating, because I worried what would happen if I gave up control.

I now have clarity around how to prioritize, and I've been able to take time off to spend with my family!

Hi, I'm Liz!

I get it, I’ve been there. 

I came blazing out of high school and university with top marks and entered the work world with big plans. I quickly learned that there was so much more to success than being a high achiever.

I still remember the day I walked back to my computer after struggling to connect with one of my colleagues who just didn’t seem to care about my opinion. 

I sat there, staring at my ever-growing inbox, and I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong. I spent hours overthinking what I was doing and what people thought about me.

Turns out, I wasn't doing anything "wrong".

After studying leadership development, I became a certified leadership coach for women and I spearheaded a Lean In Leadership Skills circle. Through it all, I figured out that women face different leadership and communication challenges than men because we get stuck between two problems: dealing with any impostor syndrome or confidence “stuff” (that men have too, btw!) AND dealing with all of the gender expectations and impostor messages that we receive in the workplace.  

This is why I created the Career Breakthrough Bootcamp - it’s a unique program designed to help you tap into your natural leadership style so you feel confident banishing impostor syndrome --- while recognizing that there are very real gender biases out there.

Here’s what you’ll get in the BootCamp

  1. 1
    8 week program includes eight group coaching calls so you can get professional and peer support putting yourself out there as a leader (Value: $950)
  2. 2

I now feel like I can give strong first impressions without having to sacrifice my values

I came to coaching because I felt like I wasn't giving strong first impressions as a leader, due to a combination of warmth, friendliness, my petite size, and my gender.

I was worried that I might discover that there is not much I can do to address my concern.

After working with Liz, I now have a tangible but manageable task ("homework") to work on that will help me prepare for future first encounters and for developing a more accurate, fair, and truthful view of myself in the workplace.

What I really appreciated about Liz was feeling like I was being truly heard and understood. She was obviously listening very attentively to the things I was describing, so much so that she was able to read between the lines and redirect my attention to some important details that I was missing.

I now feel like I can give strong first impressions without having to sacrifice values that are important to me -- this was my goal, and I'm delighted to have arrived at it.

I wasn't satisfied with my work-life balance and felt I was just living for the weekends.

Before working with Liz, I wasn't satisfied with my work-life balance and felt I was just living for the weekends. I knew that I wanted a change, but I wasn't sure how to bring more balance, happiness, enjoyment and satisfaction into my life. It was at this point that a life coach, Liz, came into my life, at just the right time.

At first I was concerned that I might not have the time to commit or that the cost of such sessions would be too much.

After speaking with Liz, I gained a better understanding of what life coaches are and how they can help you achieve success in whatever your endeavors may be. I really felt like this was the missing piece that I needed to help me achieve the balance I was searching for.

I decided to jump in and haven't looked back. Not only has Liz helped me to better understand myself, but she has helped me to achieve successes in both my personal and professional life. I've not only had a coach, but a cheerleader which has propelled me to a happier place, with a healthier work life balance.

The time commitment and the cost of sessions, that I was initially concerned about, were worth the investment. The investment in myself is paying dividends, my only regret is not having signed up with a life coach sooner!

While I enjoyed my work, it wasn’t fulfilling me the way it had in the past

Fifteen years into a successful professional career spanning two fields across two levels of government, I found myself at a crossroads. The time had come to determine what the next phase of my professional life would look like. I could start seriously pursuing promotional opportunities, but I felt a nagging hesitation.

While I enjoyed my work, it wasn’t fulfilling me the way it had in the past. I felt like there were more challenges out there for me to tackle and that the time might be right for me to consider a different path.

I had always wanted to be a writer, and had a small personal blog for a few years. I had been thinking about making a serious effort at freelance and fiction writing, but had never really been able to create a plan for what a professional writing endeavour would look like.

It was at around that time that I learned that Liz was offering personal leadership and development coaching. Even though I wasn’t really sure what to expect, I thought that working with a coach would be a great opportunity to explore where my strengths and motivations really lie.

I had thought that working with a coach meant going through the coach’s specific leadership program, which would have been great. But working with Liz was actually much better than that.

One of my biggest surprises was how much she tailored the experience to me and my needs right from the beginning. She determined what level of prodding and feedback I wanted, and she was really fantastic at listening to me speak and picking up on things that I needed to explore more.

She offered resources and exercises that were helpful and useful. Most importantly, she is both professional and extremely warm and kind at the same time. I had some very vulnerable moments, and Liz treated them with the care and respect that I needed.

​Coming out of the experience, I have a clearer vision for how I am going to pursue a writing career, and I have had the confidence to take the concrete steps to get started. I don’t feel “stuck” any more, I know that I have options and where I’m going from here.

I highly recommend coaching with Liz, for whatever goals you want to pursue.

I'm in a new position (promotion, created for me) and got a pay rise!

Having recently turned 40 and after ten years with the same management consulting firm, I was beginning to get itchy feet.

I felt overworked, underappreciated, and started to wonder if greener fields existed perhaps in another job or field. I looked around for other jobs, but nothing was feeling quite right and I felt torn about whether to leave my current job, just for the sake of leaving and making a change. There are many things that are great about my current job - including colleagues.

However, there are so many resources out there telling you to push yourself and try new things, and I always associated this with a major change - new job, new city, new me...

Many of the resources Liz provided helped me think about options to be more content without jumping into a new job somewhere unknown, doing something I didn't really want. I re-considered my options to stay with my current employer. I re-considered my attitude towards work. I opened up my thinking on what else I could do with my company.

​I ended up having an open conversation with my colleagues about how I was feeling, which was great for everyone. I'm in a new position (promotion, created for me) and got a pay rise! As a result, I look forward to starting a new position, tailored to the needs for the company and my own interests. It will mean new challenges and growth opportunities, but keeping all the things I love about my current situation.

Thanks for the support Liz!

I will be coming back as a manager after my maternity leave!

I had been working for the same organization for the last four years. I have consistently had great reviews and received salary increases. However, that has not come with a senior title. I was struggling with having lots of responsibilities without authority.

I was pregnant and about to hit my third trimester, and thought it may pose a challenge in asking for a higher title. One of my family members did not think I should ask for a promotion since I was about to have a baby and that I should focus on my pregnancy and baby.

I had a performance review, which went really well, and I was mulling over it for weeks. I got a merit-based salary increase, and I wanted to advocate myself to also get a promotion. I decided to schedule a meeting with my manager to ask for a promotion.

Liz's process was helpful for me to get clarity of my goals and how I wanted to structure the conversation with my supervisor. Liz talked me through all the scenarios that could occur during the conversation with my manager.

Going into the conversation, I was well prepared and confident about getting the promotion.

My manager was supportive and said that I will be coming back as a manager after my maternity leave!

If you are mid-career and are looking to transition into a senior role, you'd greatly benefit from working with Liz. She has very positive energy, and she is able to motivate and instill confidence in people.

Liz has got your back!

She has crafted her art

I appreciate the clarity, focus, and actionable leadership development from my discussions with Liz.

She has crafted her art, so well honed by active listening and coaching expertise, along with evidence-based research in emotional intelligence, leadership, and women's career development.

Even after one conversation, I have already discovered the change to be visible to myself, family, and work members.
