I offer two kinds of services – coaching and personalized, hands-on advice – which can be sought separately or in a combination that works for you.

What is coaching?

Coaching is an advice-free zone! In coaching, the coach helps the client come up with their own solutions, priorities, action steps, and more. Coaches ask powerful questions to help the client move forward towards their own objectives. Coaching might be right for you if you’re looking to reconnect to your motivation, set your priorities, create a vision for a project or your career, improve your relationships, and re-balance your work and personal life.

So what can we work on?

  • planning, writing, finishing that dissertation
  • writing project management, motivation, and getting unstuck
  • research program management, planning, and execution
  • teaching goals
  • collegial relations
  • getting ready for tenure and promotion
  • going on the job market
  • transitioning out of academia
  • work-life balance
  • managing service commitments
  • creating new work habits
  • public speaking
  • event planning or organization
  • grant writing
  • how and when to say yes or no
  • short, medium and long term career planning

“Hands-on” consulting services

This might be right for you if you’re seeking personalized, solution-focused on advice on something quite specific, like a job application, a grant proposal, or writing project. I’ll offer advice and guidance based on my own experience, while still encouraging you to work towards your own solutions.

We can work on particular tasks related to:

  • preparing job market materials
  • tenure and promotion packages
  • grant applications
  • syllabi
  • writing projects
  • decluttering your space and work
  • sorting out your schedule/time management
  • conference/event organization

As a consultant, I don’t provide copyediting services or prepare materials for you. I will offer higher level advice on structure, content, style, etc. Head over here for details!

Don’t these services overlap?

They might! We’ll figure out together which kinds of services are going to make the most sense for you.
