"I was recently promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure at a US medical school, and I am at a career stage where I’m thinking “what comes next?”. The coaching from Shieak really made me think about the impact I want to make with my research program, not just for the next year, but for the next 10 years.  Shieak provided outstanding guidance on how to push my thoughts beyond the limiting convergent mindset, and towards divergent thinking with the big picture in mind.  I was particularly impressed with Shieak’s sharp focus on my specific needs each week - I honestly felt as though I was in “career therapy” where I was able to express my concerns, and Shieak was able to help guide me towards the most appropriate solutions.  The weekly “wins” were always a highlight of each session with Shieak, and something I have now implemented in my weekly lab meetings. I highly recommend this style of coaching for anyone who might be struggling with their own “what comes next?”
