Helping companies and individuals with important career transitions and ensuring they happen well.

Increasingly, companies are using strategic talent management which is leading to: succession, (earlier) retirements, movement of leaders to new roles late in their careers, and leaders’ concerns regarding their next seasons. On the other end of the spectrum, early career professionals are seeking purpose, career growth, and relevancy. My Next Season’s individualized, caring approach demonstrates an understanding of, and respect for, these fragile transitions on both ends of the career continuum.

  • “My Next Season’s process for Advisor matching was very effective, and one I would highly recommend. My Advisor and I shared a no-nonsense style and it just ‘worked.’ She had extensive executive experience in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors and provided excellent support and advice as I worked to make a similar pivot. The program was instrumental in my path to an exciting new role as President and CEO of the National Safety Council.”
