Events & Workshops

AN OVERVIEW OF OPTIONS

Dramatic changes are underway in the economy.  It is estimated that by 2022, more than 40% to 50% of the workforce in the United States will be self-employed, freelancers, contract workers or in temporary-to-permanent positions.

Many employed professionals may need executive coaching to maintain or revitalize their current status.

Dr. Evans provides examples of presentations, workshops on how to manage what is commonly called the “gig economy.”   Three popular presentations are:

  1. Finding a new position

Additionally, she gives an overview of executive coaching for those currently employed.

EXECUTIVE COACHING FOR THOSE IN EMPLOYED POSITIONS

Many employed professionals, even those with prestigious degrees and strong corporate backgrounds, may need executive coaching.  Early in her career, Dr. Evans did research on how stalled and top executives in the pharmaceutical industry handled their careers.  Today she provides personalized support for those in positions, seeking to transfer to another internal position or to identify ways to be more resilient in facing corporate or professional crises.

In identifying ways to address a crisis situation, the FUD factor provides useful guidance. Coaching clients to eliminate Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt and, instead, focus on Faith, Understanding and Direction is helpful in gaining control over a current challenge.  Clients discover positive outcomes when Faith  in oneself replaces Fear; Understanding the situation replaces Uncertainty; and Direction  in knowing what to do replaces Doubt.
