Tap Into Presence: Your Job Search’s Secret Weapon

Face it: looking for work is stressful. Presence is a natural antidote to worry; when you are present, it is impossible to dwell on the past — or fear the future. The freed up energy created as a result leaves room for your authentic self to emerge. The end result: increased clarity and confidence. Talk about a more pleasant way to feel while searching for a job!

Liz got her formal training through Georgetown University’s Leadership Coaching program, and recently launched Filament Coaching to help others “shed new light” in order to live their fullest expression of themselves.
