Career Coaching

Career Coaching is about helping you close the gap between where you are today and where you want to be in the future. Successful athletes, executives, and superstars regularly enlist the services of a great coach to assist in their career success. They invest in themselves. They invest in their future. At Ascend2Success, we want you to make that same investment.


Ascend2Success offers an exciting, creative career coaching program designed specifically for administrative professionals. We believe in listening, motivating, offering support, and creating action plans to help you reach your career goals. We center our approach on your specific preferences and needs, so you can navigate your career with confidence. Private one-on-one coaching is the most effective means to elevate your administrative career.

Coaching sessions are tailored to each client’s specific needs and privacy is assured. Where sensitive information is involved, coaching may be the only practical option. In addition to teaching skills to enhance your executive/assistant business partnership, coaching is available to assist with a variety of topics to strengthen your career and build a solid partnership with your leader.

**Services will be provided virtually by phone or Skype. A face-to-face meeting can be arranged for clients living in the Silicon Valley area and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
