Life changes. We evolve. Yet sometimes our work doesn't keep up.

If you've spent years - or decades - building a career, it can be daunting to find yourself 'stuck' and not knowing what to do next. The idea of changing course, can bring significant emotional and financial risk. I know, I've been there. And that's why I've created this programme.

A world-leading process designed for professionals who want to de-risk change.

With over 4 hours of video, 18 episodes, 22 printable activity sheets + a set of Values Cards, this offers incredible value.

What past customers have gained

Being challenged creates courage

Claire Woolley

"Melissa has the kind of deep experience and approach to make working with her a simply awesome experience. She challenged me to think broadly, creatively and also courageously and in so doing, I got much needed clarity on my professional value and possible future paths. Highly recommended!"

Stephen Webb

Getting the job I truly wanted but couldn't see it

Ngaire Woodhams

"Melissa’s ability to help you to truly get to the heart of what "you are about and what drives you" is amazing. As a result of this process I was able to look for - and get - the job I truly wanted. I’m still in that job and deeply passionate about it!

Reducing the risk of leaving a safe job

Paul Siratovich

“Making the decision to leave a safe corporate job is never easy. For me there was a lot of risk involved, but this process helped me to minimise those risks by identifying the right options for my skills and values. I have now forged a new and profitable business as a result. Without the kick-start this process gave me, I would be a lot more lost and not certain it would have even happened!"
