Get that promotion AND be recognized as the total badass you are

You may not know what’s your next career step, or how to get there. Or you’re simply shit-scared to make the leap. But one thing you DO know is that you won’t settle for anything less than what you deeply want.

  • You are a high-achiever held back by constant self-doubt

  • You feel stuck in your career

  • You lack the clarity of what you really want

  • You feel you are not doing what you are supposed to do

  • You feel like others do not see your potential or contributions

I know how hard it can be to find an exciting job. Here are a few tips (and here you can get the full list):

  • Networking is rather simple: Start with the people you know. Reach out and tell them what you need and with whom you would like to talk.
  • Focus on what the employer, recruiter, or your future manager are looking for. After some hard work, you will have clarity about this. And then you can tweak your stories and experiences on your CV in that direction.

  • Procrastination might be holding you back from getting into action or even working through this book. A study from Amsterdam found that this is normal behavior for about 95% of people. So almost everybody is affected and is putting things off at some point or another.

see what other leaders are saying about my work:

“I started working with Miguel in a critical moment of my life and career where I felt lost and stuck in what I was doing. Miguel helped me discover my values and gain the confidence to make a number of changes in my life – setting up my own business successfully. Through the sessions I got to know myself better, and learned how to manage and leverage both my strengths and weaknesses. He challenged me and coached me every step of the way, creating an open and honest environment to work in. I could not have done it without him.”

Eye opening for my career! Things I learned are: how to unravel the knots, feel confident and strong, go back to my basic values and learn tools how to fix things myself. I worked with Miguel with visual solutions and felt relieved as well as eye opening going through the coaching with him.
