CAREER COACHING

CAREER COACHING

You deserve a career you LOVE. I help you rethink, reimagine, and recreate your career — and your life.

As a high tech career coach, I’m an expert at helping Silicon Valley’s top talent rethink, reimagine, and recreate their careers. Want to see what’s possible with a highly caffeinated career coach in your life? Keep scrolling.

Once you’re ready to get started, request a consultation to see if working with me is your next best step.

My clients achieve what they never imagined was possible…

  • After a 20+-year career in retail leadership, a senior executive broke into high tech and secured a work from home role for almost 2X their annual salary.
  • Feeling stuck and burnt out after a successful career in high tech, an executive rekindled their passion and successfully transitioned into nonprofit leadership.
  • Following a decade-plus career in finance, an executive learned how to translate their skills to their newfound passion (human resources) and landed multiple job offers.
  • Unsure how to break into project management, a healthcare analyst learned the high tech landscape, networked with industry insiders, and landed a role in high tech — plus a $40K+ salary increase.

While your results will vary, know they will be anything but ordinary. That’s my promise.

Kyle really helped me find my strengths and what I could improve on throughout our sessions.

He was calm, collected and also honest about so many things including ideas from his own life. I would highly recommend Kyle for anyone looking for their next great job. Thanks to him, I got a great job working for a tech company.”

—ADRIAN NUÑO

I will teach you how to rethink, reimagine, and recreate your career…

I am an expert at coaching people to get unstuck, own their fabulousness, and achieve what they never imagined was possible.

My Zone of Genius is coaching — I coach you to rethink your career, reimagine your career, and recreate your career.

As a career coach specializing in high tech and Silicon Valley, I harness the power of deep coaching questions to help you connect the dots between where you are and where you want to go — in your career and in your life.

Most often, I work with you to strategically and intentionally connect the dots between your career story and the companies and positions you are targeting in your job search.

The results? You find a career you LOVE. You also achieve happiness.

Working with Kyle was a dream!

He is kind, intuitive, challenging, and extremely talented. The process he has created with his clients is very efficient and, more importantly, it works. I landed the exact role I wanted as the next step in my career within months of starting our work together. Kyle truly helps you to put your best foot forward, hone in on what matters most, and ensures that your most relevant experience shines through. Kyle is professional but at this point, I also consider him a friend. He has been so generous with his talent and time, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to continue to work with him. I highly recommend Kyle!”

—Michelle Focarazzo

I do this using a proven methodology…

  • Deep Dive Coaching Sessions: We will begin by you telling me your biggest goals and dreams, and what is holding you back from achieving them. I will then help you see inside yourself, slice through your limiting beliefs, and own your fabulousness. Together, we will craft a plan to achieve what seems impossible.
  • Insight You’ve Always Craved: Clients hire me because I tell them what they NEED to hear, not what they WANT to hear. I am typically the first person to tell them how it really is. Sometimes it hurts, you may even sweat and cry, but you’ll leave each session feeling less stuck.
  • Highly Caffeinated Session Notes: I will take notes during our sessions so you can focus on the deep, moving questions I ask you. After each call, I will compile key takeaways and send you any helpful resources to build upon your experience.
  • Customized Homework: After each session, you will receive bespoke “homework” to keep you on course to achieving your goals and dreams. This may be readings or a book, worksheets, journaling activities, or even meditation.
  • Support Between Sessions: Much of the magic happens between sessions, and I will be there for you. Clients share that the support they receive between sessions is easily worth the investment in coaching alone.

Coaching Session Frequency: Most of my career coaching clients meet with me every one to two weeks. We will determine how often to meet to achieve your career goals.

Working with Kyle was definitely a great investment.

His program and incredible motivation helped me analyze my strengths, goals and laser focus on what was needed in order get my new and current job. Just make sure to set time aside when you decide to make the transition. It’s totally worth it to understand why we want something new and which company would offer that great future.”

—ERIKA NAGY BASANTE

My coaching philosophy and approach…

  • While it may not seem like it at the moment, there is value in being stuck. I help you rethink, reimagine, and recreate your career.
  • At least 99% of the answers to your questions lie within you. As your coach, my role is to help pull those answers out of you, even when they seem unreachable.
  • Deep, moving questions are one of the most powerful tools available to help you get unstuck, own your fabulousness, and achieve what you never imagined was possible.
  • No two people are the same. You deserve a bespoke experience and deep insights that you cannot find anywhere else.
  • You are fabulous. The world deserves to know how fabulous you are and experience the gifts that only YOU have to offer.

If you’re looking for a career coach that lives up to their word of helping people find work that they love, Kyle is the career coach for you!

I thought career coaching meant helping me find and apply for work, but Kyle helped me find confidence in my abilities and helped me showcase the skills I know I can bring to any organization in the most fabulous way! Thank you for being the motivator, pusher, confidence booster, and absolutely incredible supporter I needed.”

—WINNIE LUONG

How I will help you find a career you LOVE…

I recognize working with me is a significant investment in your career and in your life. As you review the following career coaching packages, ask yourself:

  • How much is it costing me to spend 3, 6, or 12+ months unsatisfied... unhappy... undervalued... underpaid... underemployed... unemployed...?
  • How much is my happiness worth?
  • How much am I worth?

Additionally, I work with a very limited number of career coaching clients at a time. My clients achieve the impossible because I am deeply committed to their success and their happiness. As a result, my coaching practice is application-only. I often have a waiting list for new career coaching clients.

Note that my typical client makes six- or seven-figures and loses at least $3,750+ every week when they are unemployed; this does not include health insurance and other benefits.

When you take into account the $25,000 to $60,000+ salary increases my clients often receive with their new job offers, your package is a small investment that will pay for itself many times over. Also, many of my clients receive $10,000 to $100,000+ sign-on bonuses (plus stock options) with their new jobs.

And, if you are considering a career coach you found online, I encourage you to read this article I wrote for Forbes on how to vet top career coach lists and the career coaches on them.

–TONI SPINUZZI

Your questions answered…

I feel stuck. Are you sure you can help me?

Yep! You’re in the right place. This is my Zone of Genius. I help people get unstuck, own their fabulousness, and achieve what they never imagined possible.

What’s your experience helping clients land jobs at [insert big tech company name here]?

My clients have landed interviews — and jobs — at nearly every Fortune 500 company you can think of as well as hundreds of large privately held companies and hyper-growth startups.

I haven’t looked for a job in 5, 10, 20+ years. Can you help me?

Absolutely! You’re in the right place. Many of my clients are senior managers and executives who have not looked for a job in a decade or more.

What if I want to cover a topic(s) not listed in one of your programs?

Let’s do it! Each of my career coaching programs is customized to your unique needs, goals, and learning style. During your no-obligation consultation, first session, and throughout the program, we will determine what areas to focus on to ensure you make the best first impression possible.

The topics listed above are purely for illustrative purposes. In fact, some clients choose to ditch the topics listed and create a 100% individualized program.

You will quickly learn that one of my greatest talents is curating a one-of-a-kind experience that ensures your success.

Here are the 10 most common topics that clients bring to their career coaching sessions with me:

  • Career Discovery Guidance/Target Company and Position Identification
  • Career Document Review (Resume, Cover Letter, & LinkedIn Profile)
  • Networking and Leveraging LinkedIn
  • Interview Preparation
  • Salary Negotiation
  • 30-60-90 Day Plan Development
  • Executive Presence
  • Thought Leadership Marketing
  • Time and Energy Management
  • Confidence Building (AKA Owning Your Fabulousness)

As a career coach specializing in high tech and Silicon Valley, 8 out of 10 of my clients work in high tech and 2 out of 3 of my clients work in Silicon Valley. However, I do not offer technical interview prep or coding interview prep. That said, I will point you to trusted resources as you prepare for your technical interviews and/or coding interviews.

Can we work on my career documents during our coaching sessions?

Yes! Your sessions with me are YOUR time. I am happy to offer feedback and comments on your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile during our sessions.

Wait… Can’t you just write my resume for me?

Nope. There are a lot of professional resume writers out there who simply write your resume for you. You will find that what sets me apart from other professional resume writers and career coaches is how deeply I get to know you while working with you to craft your career story.

My Zone of Genius is teaching clients to rethink, recreate, and reimagine how they tell their career stories. This involves deep dive coaching sessions (I call this “co-creation”) and “homework” on your part between sessions.

The results are powerful. You learn to identify and own your fabulous. You stand out in the saturated job market. And, most importantly, you find a job you LOVE.

What if I want additional career coaching sessions?

Many clients choose to invest in additional career coaching sessions once they complete their program with me. Additional career coaching sessions are available at $475 per session (50 minutes). All sessions include highly caffeinated session notes in addition to customized “homework” to keep you on track toward achieving your career goals.

When can we start?

I run an application-only coaching practice. I often have a waiting list to begin due to a full coaching practice and busy speaking schedule. Click here to request a no-obligation consultation.
