When people feel aimless or dissatisfied in their career, it’s often because they have no idea what they’re looking for. Without a clear idea of what they want to do, they get antsy about leaving their job, focused on external measures of success and distracted by shiny jobs. How are they supposed to stop doing what they think is “right” in your career and start doing what’s right for them? If they’re not clear about what they want, there’s no way they can convey it to anyone else.

“Lindsay is an exceptional talent! Her ability to mentor, coach and teach our early talent cohort through workshops and speaker guidance has been wonderful to witness. Not only does Lindsay have a keen insight into the career pathways in tech but she also understands the unique nuance of needs within the subsets of tech and non-tech talent navigating success within a tech company.
At Workday, we have been lucky enough to have Lindsay deliver workshops for early in career full-time talent as well as our North America interns. Each session was built to address the unique needs of the audience and has created waves of ongoing career conversations and exploration. Lindsay has become our top go-to presenter and we are always excited to witness her engagement with our employees.”

"Lindsay Gordon has that sixth-sense empathy that all fantastic career coaches wield. But what really impressed me was how she brought an engineer's precision to her coaching and exercises. I left with more than warm, fuzzy feelings — I had frameworks, concrete tactics and changes I wanted to try."
- Shaun Young
“I liked the interactive nature (vs. lecture) of the meeting. Loved our speaker! Learned new things about myself and loved hearing other people's insights. Loved the idea of breaking vague and immeasurable things like "happiness" or "fulfillment" into categories that are easier to work with.”
