“Jonathan Flaks has provided insightful coaching for me in my career planning and job search as well as invaluable leadership counsel in the first several months after I landed my position. Jonathan helped me view situations and opportunities from a creative perspective. He has a unique style that goes beyond the typical "by the book" practices and offers very compelling and interactive sessions in bringing out the best in his clients. I would recommend him highly for personal and business engagements.”  – Bill Ruggiero – Goya Foods

I have the tools and methods to assure a smooth transition into your new role.  Let's figure it out together.

RATE AND RELATE - Which of the following statements can you relate to ?

I'd really like to get out of this RUT and wake up excited for work every day."

“What do I wanna be when I grow up.” ... or more accurately. “What do I do NEXT now that I'm here?”

I can’t just quit – How am I going to integrate my search into my daily plan and stay motivated day-by-day so I can make a smooth transition?

"I'm almost ready to retire - I just need an exciting and meaningful plan for how I'll use my time."

“ I can negotiate real well on behalf of others. How can I negotiate a better deal for myself?”

"My resume and interviewing skills are OK, but I need to do something to stand out and secure first-place."

“How do I strategize the promotion that I know I deserve - it seems like it might not materialize? "

"How can I upgrade or update my networking? I know that’s the best way to make the right contacts."

"There has got to be a better way to leverage my talent and time to make the kind of money I deserve"

If you can relate to these examples, we can talk about your unique situation during your sample coaching session. If you deserve to have a meaningful new purpose, then you owe it to yourself to contact me to discuss the goals you want to reach.

What is so special about my style of career coaching?

Career Coaching is a blend of executive coaching, career counseling and business savvy marketing advice. Unlike most career counselors trained in psychology and human resource functions, my background includes entrepreneurial, results driven experience.

I have a 22 year track record of getting hired a lot, and since 1998, I’ve helped hundreds of others as well.  I focus on helping you position yourself, rather than simply retelling your career chronology.  Many clients have me fix their resumes and networking strategies after trying elsewhere to no avail.

We also maintain a high level of motivation and confidence to overcome the challenges.  Finally, we can leverage what I call your leadership equity to secure the best possible deal for you.

To explore new possibilities in your situation, let's have a conversation ... 

"I had been working in a family business, and I really wasn’t sure where life was headed after that. Jonathan was crucial toward helping me narrow my focus and putting to work my existing skills, which actually turned out to be pretty abundant. His feedback and insights act as a catalyst towards your looking at your self and your situation from a different perspective and lo and behold, it becomes very, very helpful. I’m in a new situation and already working on deals and having success there. Jonathan has certainly been helpful to me – give him a shout, it’s well worth it." – Shayne Mahon
