We know what it’s like to navigate white-dominant spaces. We’ve experienced the roadblocks that come with ambitiously working to get a promotion, a raise, a seat at the table as a POC.
Whether you’re leveling up in your career, looking for a new job, or launching a passion project as an intrapreneur, we’ll coach you through the challenges that come with being the first, the other, the only.
Leadership can be lonely, but it doesn’t have to be. And with the visibility, access, and power you gain with your climb to the top, we’ll support your employee activism so you can use your platform for good and help other marginalized folx come up with you.
BUT WHAT IF YOU FLY?
Purpose - Your Why
Power - Confidence, experience, expertise, skills (what you know and bring to the table, any gaps to what you want)
Personal Brand - Presence, positioning ( LinkedIn profile, thought leadership, what you stand for and how you present yourself)
Pursuit - Self-promotion and priorities in alignment with your values (unapologetic about your wants; boundaries, non-negotiables, and parameters around your dream role, company)
People - Networking, building social capital (who you know, mentorship, sponsorship)
Process - Plan, strategy, application, accountability (goals, resume and interviewing, negotiating, pitching)
Perseverance - Mindset shifts towards abundance, optimism, and possibilities as you climb to the top
“I felt really insecure, and I was looking for a way to build my confidence to better my life both personally and professionally. Carissa has made feel more empowered in my career, and realize that my future is "limitless". Carissa was really easy to talk and open up to. It can be difficult to open up to individuals regarding personal and professional goals, but she made it such an empowering experience. She was able to give me practical steps to reach my goals, which is very important. I would recommend Carissa's coaching to anyone looking to take their goals to the next level and beyond.”

“I was struggling to make a decision between two good career opportunities, one of which required me to relocate. The dilemma of choosing between a new career opportunity, and starting over without my professional and social networks. I couldn't map out a decision that I would be satisfied with. Talking with Carissa gave me clarity around the questions I needed to answer to feel confident about making a decision, and helped me realize that the decision was not irreversible, no matter the eventual outcome. I got a lot of clarity around my true concerns, addressed them and was able to make the decision to relocate within 3 days of having the coaching session. Being able to look back at decisions I made and feeling good about making them. I am also looking forward to accomplishing my long term career goals.I loved the fact that Carissa was able to quickly identify my concerns and help me differentiate between the real hurdles and the self-created hurdles. Her insistence that I write down my questions, concerns and thoughts throughout the process was immensely helpful.”
