We are certified coaches, with years of experience in both one-on-one and team coaching. We engage individuals through thoughtful conversation and the use of assessments, including Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and EQ-i 2.0 and EQ-i 2.0 360 assessments, and we have a unique program designed especially for Women in technology roles.
For Women in Tech, or Organizations that Want to Support Women in Tech
According to a 2016 Catalyst report, 53% of women who begin their careers in the tech business leave for other industries (compared to 31% of men) and over a third of women who earn engineering degrees never become engineers. On average, women tend to leave tech-intensive industries after 10 years.
Growing representation of women in technology is a complex problem to solve. Studies have shown that some key factors in retaining women are: helping them build relationships, providing role models and mentors to support and guide them, helping them build senior relationships, and offering training and development opportunities. In most organizations, women must lead these initiatives on their own and they often struggle to navigate to success.
We offer several services to help you and your organization help support women in tech to grow their careers, and/or to provide supportive coaching to women in those technology roles.
Are you stuck?
Perhaps you are at a crossroads in your career, not sure what to do next, where to go, or how to get started. Perhaps you need a new resume, or need to prepare for your dream job, but don’t have anyone who can help. Do you have trouble setting goals and/or keeping them? Maybe you find yourself staring at a blank piece of paper, not sure what it is that’s bugging you, but sure that you need to do something about it. But what?
We can help you figure out that direction you want to go and the next step to take, and then set you on a path to be successful in achieving your goals. Our approach is simple, private, and effective.
For Business Leaders
Would you like to be more effective as a leader?
We offer Executive Coaching to help people develop a team, achieve goals, and move their careers forward. Similar to our “Coaching for Individuals,” our Executive Coaching approach involves uncovering the barriers to your success, setting goals, and developing an action plan to get them done. Combined with our psychometric assessments (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and/or EQ-i 2.0), we can help you find that “career-defining” moment you’ve been looking for.
What Our Customers Said:
When I started looking for a new position I was pushing in many different directions, making a focused job search difficult. Whiteboard’s strategies on how to organize my efforts more effectively and how to narrow the goalposts towards the type of role I was truly seeking breathed new life into my search. I started to feel traction immediately. The skills I gained from our sessions are also applicable to everyday organization and problem solving, allowing forward motion with renewed vigour. -J. Hatcher, Creative Director
I came to Whiteboard Consulting seeking help to prep for an interview. What I thought was going to be a stressful conversation turned out to be very motivating and encouraging. My coach listened to my concerns offering insightful and helpful tips on how to tackle the issues. She asked questions that changed my perspective! I ended up with a clear vision on how to best to approach the interview. (P.S. I got the job💃) – S. Smith, LCBO
Dear Whiteboard: I wanted to send you a quick line to say thank you for our coaching sessions! Before the experience, I wasn’t sure what I wanted, but with your logical, hands-on approach, I have a much more clear vision, a 5 year plan and set goals along the way to help get me there. I truly appreciate your positive attitude, down to earth approach and honest feedback. You have a gift of seeing any situation with an optimistic lens and finding opportunities where none seem apparent – it’s quite refreshing. You are so good at what you do and I wish you nothing but success! – C. Pagliaroli, Ontario Public Service
I asked my Whiteboard coach to help me prepare for a critical panel interview with the partnership committee of my Bay Street law firm. Given her skills and expertise, I had confidence asking her to help prepare me with mock questions and an interview. She did an amazing job, as I had expected – she asked me tough but thoughtful questions and helped me frame my responses in a more strategic, confident and polished way. Needless to say, as a direct result of her coaching and guidance, I aced the interview and was promoted to partner as a result. I will always ask for her guidance for similar matters in the future and would recommend her to others. Thank you, Whiteboard! – A.B., Bay Street, Toronto, Law Firm
