    5 Steps to Discover and Define
    Your Career Genius Zone

    Whether you are mid-career or a recent grad or even semi-retired, many of us find ourselves mulling over this question.

    We have a degree from an exceptional school, but for many of us, our career steps may have been more responsive to opportunities presented or reactions to circumstances. Perhaps you like what you are doing but aren’t totally fulfilled. You may have a sense of “I should be doing something different, but I am not sure what.” Perhaps the COVID-19 pandemic has been a catalyst for you to rethink your core values and career path. Now might be the ideal time for you to take charge of your career path and be proactive.

    Tracy Timm, CEO of Nth Degree(R) Academy will lead attendees through a unique and remarkably insightful process to understand:

    • Am I in the right place?
    • What is my niche and what are my super powers?
    • What type of role, company and environment is best for me if I am going to achieve long-term satisfaction and fulfillment?

    The career transition process typically has three phases. This session will focus on Phase 1. Many individuals when faced with a career transition, whether forced or voluntary, often jump right into the Phase 2 activities such as updating their resume, revising their LinkedIn profile, and consolidating their contact list. Others may even skip directly to Phase 3 activities such as calling on friends and colleagues, targeting specific people and companies, and responding to open positions. When individuals jump into these second and third phase activities, they neglect the more important and fundamental Phase 1 activities that involve answering the really hard questions such as “what do I really want to do with my life and career?”

    In this webinar, Tracy will share components from her proven career clarity methodology, The Nth Degree®, which will allow anyone to master the necessary Phase 1 activities of discovering one’s true value, defining one’s professional genius zone, and driving one’s dream career into reality.

    Join us for the timely and actionable session relevant to us all. Every participant will develop and solidify a strong foundation that will enable them to take the next steps in their career with clarity, confidence, and certainty.

    ABOUT THE SPEAKER

    Millree Williams is a Strategic Communications Consultant and Coach who crafts and executes communications and messaging strategy to optimally position organizations, their missions and their leaders to build support and sustain loyalty. Her expertise and experience are in defining and executing innovative strategies aimed at engaging audiences, shaping opinion, and compelling action.

    With more than 20 years of organizational, consulting and coaching experience, Milree has led university, nonprofit and public health teams to build successful and lasting organizational brand and storytelling platforms, communications strategies, stakeholder engagement and loyalty. My leadership has always been hallmarked by building collaborative teams that felt connected, and that grew and empowered members.

    When he lost his leadership position several years ago, and after a long period of time trying unsuccessfully – and frustratingly -- to find a new position that leveraged my expertise, he made the personal decision to pivot; to follow his passion and become who he really wanted to be: someone in charge of his own destiny, who is trained and empowered to help others become their best selves.

    He created Willekop Consulting and Coaching, LLC, a specialized communications consulting and coaching firm that provides seasoned expertise in positioning organizations and guiding business leaders and individuals as they create and execute next-level transformation.

    As a consultant, Milree helps clients achieve their organizational goals by more strategically articulating their mission, values, priorities, and strengths to their key stakeholders. The result? Improved positioning, stronger and more expansive support, and confidence in crisis management, resulting in longer-lasting brand loyalty. As a CTA-trained coach, he works with individuals, small businesses and business owners -- especially those pivoting in the midst of this pandemic period -- to build awareness, drive business and improve market share.

    He has a BA in English and Philosophy from Bowie State University, with a graduate certificate in leadership development from the Harvard University School of Graduate Education. He has also completed training programs in leadership, strategy, emotional intelligence, and change management.
