From International Non Profit Development to
Help Desk Analyst (IT)
The 12 coaching sessions I experienced with Eileen of CBD from January through mid-July in Toronto were just what I needed to redirect and recharge my thinking and attitude about my life and career.
I made a significant transition from 30 years of international non-profit work into a brand new position as an Bilingual Help Desk Analyst (IT). I invested a lot of energy into this transition but kudos go mainly to Eileen.
Eileen is a real cheerleader who doesn't shy away from directing the conversations to what matters. I believe I am a much more confident communicator and less distracted by negative attitudes and fear of change.
This process was not always easy. Yet now I have landed a dream position, am learning new things and meeting new and interesting people. It is my time to cheer on Eileen and the CBD team!
Message from Eileen:
I was deeply inspired by Frank's journey from 30 years in international non-profit development with no contacts or network in Toronto to a 'dream position'. Upon reflection of our journey together, I wrote this article to help others understand how Frank was successful.

Digital Media Professional
My Careers by Design experience has allowed me to understand my own skills much better than before, and as a result I am able to present a clear message about who I am and what I am looking for from my next professional challenge.
Eileen, my coach, was very clear about what I can expect from the process and how to maximize its potential from the start.
Enrolling in the CBD program was a tremendously positive and I highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to gain a better understanding of their place in the modern business environment.
