Sessions start with me asking a TON of really good questions to cut through the noise and get to the heart of the issue.  If I have advice, clients have the option of keeping it, tossing  it, exploring it or putting it on hold.  As we move forward we come up with really strong findings that start making everything make sense.  Once we get the data around the internal profile clarified we go into external research mode.  I use job search engines, LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Truity, and a ton of other information repositories to do interactive research with clients to get to a career path that feels good and works.  The way we do this is tailored to how each client works – planners get a plan that checks their boxes, intuitives get clear methods to gather more qualitative data about situation better, logicians get hypotheses to test to forward the understanding.
