 If you are here, you’re probably a top performer in your workplace or wondering when you will get that that next big promotion. You may even have a team that is... well... stuck.


But, what are some of the other thoughts you may have?

First, we want you to recognize that even beginning to reflect on your (or your team's)  potential is a great first step.

Does this sound like you or your team members?

  • I am overwhelmed and I don't want to burn out.

  • I don't have clarity on my goals, purpose, or intention.

  • I just moved into a new role, and I want to be sure that I succeed right out the starting gate.

  • My relationship with my boss/colleagues is poor.

  • I am having a hard time managing my emotions.

  • I just can't seem to get clarity around my decisions and/or goals.

  • My career seems to be at a standstill and I need help moving forward.

  • ...the list can go on and on!

New North Carolina Project Team

We are glad you’re here.

Don’t worry, we got you!

This means you will have to Show Up and Show Off your strengths and talent! That is correct! Just like a peacock, it is time to flaunt your feathers. You have potential and confidence to be everything you desire to be… sound like your parents, right? But it is true!


Have people said to you, “You shine when you walk in a room.” Or “You command respect and attention as a leader, but why are you not in a leadership position?”


This has made you begin thinking and reflecting – do I even want to be a leader?


Yes, it is time to be a leader (and it is not just about having a title) because we are in a time where we need authentic, dynamic, empathetic, exemplary leaders. And that is you! No matter if you are in the corporate world, running your own business or in any other industry – it is time!

Like any top performer or good leader, we have strategically put together an experience for you (and even your team) that will have you walk away saying "why didn’t I do this sooner?" That’s just it! We will be that person for you that we didn’t have as we walk through the scary, intimidating business jungle! 

Right now, your thoughts may be overwhelming, jumbled, or it sounds like you are rambling. Just talk! Let us guide you to find clarity so you can unleash your confidence and potential. It’s time to level up! (And can cuss! Have you seen the research about people who cuss!?)


From Corporate Leader to Corporate World Dropout!
