Having transitioned from a successful run with Allstate Insurance to pursue executive coaching, Frank Berardi is intimately familiar with the challenges and opportunities that accompany big career changes. As an Advisor with My Next Season, Frank walks alongside leaders in career transition and gives them the tools they need to pursue their next season goals. His corporate skill set, his executive coaching experience, and the lessons he learned as he transitioned from a demanding, high-stress job make him an effective and empathetic Advisor.
After retiring from Allstate, Frank launched his second career as an executive coach and founder of the Callahan Group. He later joined a consulting firm where his specialty was helping leaders with both long-range strategy development as well as how to manage and adjust when confronted with unexpected change. As a coach, Frank worked internationally with nearly 300 CEOs and C-Suite executives at the H.J. Heinz Company, Chevron, Bayer, and other organizations.
In addition to his work as an Advisor, Frank is deeply engaged in philanthropic endeavors. He and his wife Jan play active roles in the Main Street Organization, which seeks to strengthen small towns by encouraging business leaders to transform main streets into charming environments where small businesses can thrive. Frank is also active in his church, where he serves regularly as a proclaimer. He and his wife live just outside Chicago and have three children and several grandchildren.
