Thank you for purchasing our VIP Platinum Package: In-Person Coaching

Congratulations and welcome! I am delighted you have signed up for my in-person VIP platinum package. This elite service for my highest priority clients does all the heavy lifting for you; however, your positive participation is critical to your success! Please read the simple instructions below for getting started.
Getting Set Up

We will be using a platform called “Basecamp” for your project management. You will be receiving another message with instructions on how to join your project, so be on the lookout for an invitation from my Director of Operations, Cindy, with the following “from” line:

From: Cindy D. (Basecamp) <>

Cindy will be your personal project manager and will manage the logistics of your project. Note that the above message will be delivered manually, so please anticipate a delay. To ensure you don’t miss any correspondence from our team, please add to your email safe sender list.

Complete Your Blueprint

Here is where we get started! Please open this link to your “Career Success Blueprint” to download, complete and upload to Basecamp.

Career Success Blueprint
(If you have opted for board document creation in lieu of an executive resume, please use our Board Success Blueprint)

Your Blueprint is a leadership development tool  with questions that will help you clarify your goals, analyze your markets of interest and align your major accomplishments and skills to the opportunity you want next.

I believe you will be pleasantly surprised with how it will help you frame your overall strategy, and the information you provide will empower us to develop a powerful executive resume and supporting marketing materials for you.

If you have questions as you are completing your Blueprint, please call or reach out to me so I can help. Our clients generally take 2 to 14 days to complete it. Once completed. Please upload it to Basecamp so we can analyze your input to determine if we need additional information from you before we begin to draft your executive resume.

Blueprint Support (Optional)

Mary Elizabeth Bradford recorded a short audio on how to determine your next best role, plus a tip sheet that guides you on how to approach writing about your metric driven accomplishments.

How to Contextualize Your Focus of Direction (audio)
Helpful if you find you’re not satisfied with the current clarity of what you want your next role to look like – and how to gauge market need.

How to Quantify Your Accomplishments (PDF)
Helpful if you are unsure which accomplishments of yours to showcase or how to approach sharing metrics.

DISC Assessment

Your package includes a DISC Leadership Profile Assessment. We use the DISCstyles™ LEADERSHIP REPORT, which is an industry standard in behavioral style assessments. This is included with your Platinum Package because in addition to your metric driven accomplishments, your leadership aptitudes are critical to showcase. This assessment may confirm traits you know you have or define others in detail that you had not previously emphasized. Please complete this assessment in the same window of time you complete your blueprint so that we can integrate your results during the creation of your executive documents.

Click here to the register for the test.

After registering, you will then receive a separate customized link to your test, which should take about 15 minutes to complete. The results will be sent directly to you in the form of a 40+ page report and will outline your leadership style. We recommend sharing your results with us via Basecamp, so we can utilize your core leadership strengths in our overall positioning strategy for you.

Here is an additional reference to understanding your report results:

I can’t wait to meet you for our one-on-one coaching session! One of my team members will be reaching out to you shortly with several dates in the coming months that I am available to meet with you here in central Texas. You are responsible for transportation and lodging. As a courtesy, if you wish to spend the night or make a mini vacation out of your trip, we have listed various lodging options from beautiful hotel resorts to Texas Hill Country B&Bs here:

Lodging in Boerne, TX

If you will be flying in and out on the same day, a catered lunch will be arranged. Specific meeting details will be sent to you after the dates are confirmed. Please let us know if you have any wine or food preferences or allergies we should be aware of. We want your experience to be enjoyable and relaxing.

The dress for your strategy session is business casual. Central Texas can be in the 30s in the winter, and summer is hot and semi-humid.

Retreat Day Coaching
During our 3-hour retreat day coaching session, I will be walking you through a job search strategy customized for your particular goals. I will be going over the marketing collateral we developed for you, sharing resources with you, and working with you to set up systems to make your job search easy, efficient, and effective. We will address your primary challenges so you are well-prepared for your executive transition.
