Brooke’s approach to career coaching is based on reflection, design thinking, and experimentation.
Encore coaching is not linear, nor does it involve cataclysmic leaps. It demands patience but is also enlivening— generative, creative, and activity based.
You will begin by evaluating your journey thus far—reading the events of your life like a good novel: What are the themes and motifs? Who were the heroes and villains? What key values, needs and interests come up again and again? This work will excavate a foundation upon which to build what’s next.
And then…you will experiment. You will test multiple identities and potential paths, all the while paying attention to your distinctive interests and what they have to teach you:
- Collectors may spend time at the Art Institute pondering what their love for art reveals about their purpose
- Athletes may debrief their big race to see what it reveals about their drive
- Those exploring intractable quandaries about the “good life” may read a classic novel for illumination
