"Thank you for considering our group - I'm devoted to each and every participant's professional path. I set a strong container, keep it semi-structured... and my top goal is professional and emotional safety. While this is a didactic group, I often invite participants to use the group for a degree of processing in the service of professional development. I'll give lessons, particpants ask questions or share progress and I offer my consultation in response. What you put into the group is what you'll get out of it. Oh... and I assign homework between meetings that inspires you to stretch your comfort zone, lazer-focus on your goals and achieve the professional and career results you're pursuing. I credit my consultation group for helping me get to where I am today! Join us!" - Dr. Julie Hartman

Structure/Format:

 

  • Group leader (volunteer participant) coordinates dates for each participant to present a Professional Identity/Career Development topic that he/she is addressing, such as 'branding', marketing, referrals, financials, solo practice vs. group practice, self-promotion, confidence/vulnerability, laws/ethics

  • Dr. Hartman offers specific coaching/consultation, including recommendations, examples, exercises and modeling to help participants make progress on their goals 

  • Participants ask Dr. Hartman clarifying questions and she'll faciliate the opportunity for participants to engage in 'cross-talk' or offer each other suggestions on topic

 

Sample benefits:

 

  • Make decisions about starting points, i.e. "Given your experience, consider the following 30-second summary of who you are and what you offer, then consider joining X association and contact the Director to ask about Y opportunities... this will help you 'try it on' to begin building more public self-promotion 'muscles'"

  • Become more skillful in authentic presence while also maintaining clear professional boundaries, ethics, i.e. "What's your story? What's a time in your personal life that makes you be able to build specific rapport with clients? Here's an example of mine. I may not ever tell this to people... but through professional identity work, I've learned to embody it so my unique power from that story comes across." 

  • Organize your assets i.e. "Make a mind-map of your assets... I'll do it here on the white board to get you started..."

  • Learn and practice calculated risks, i.e. "Let's explore which risks you're ready for, which feel too scary and why, then let's create a hierarchy of what step/risk makes sense to do next."

  • In addition to Dr. Hartman's consultation, the group format offers the opportunity to learn from each other's development as well
