WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Career Results

  • Within six months of taking your lifework program, I had organized and founded a $250,000 statewide partnership for youth tobacco prevention… Because of your program, it is much easier pursuing passions and dreams, turning visions into actions.
    -Rick Bernardo
  • I was pleasantly surprised how Leonard was able to help me in the course of one 30 minute session. He asked me questions that quickly got to the issue and background of my situation. Leonard was able to quickly assess and understand my situation to offer advice that was very helpful and fit the situation.
    -J. Allen, Learning and Development Consultant
  • Working with Leonard was very helpful for me to clarify my career goals and develop a detailed plan of incremental steps and a timeline for reaching towards them. Leonard knows just the right questions to ask to help you solidify what might otherwise be somewhat muddled dreams and aspirations into achievable, measurable goals.
    -Rachel Wahlberg
  • Leonard helped me navigate through some tough career choices to determine what really mattered to me. He also helped me work through political and communication issues at work. Now I’m in exactly the right job and career, and I have a long-range vision for where I’m headed. I’d strongly recommend him to anyone struggling with a career or job decision.

  • Leonard helped me bring into focus my passions and interests and helped me formulate a plan to fit those different pieces into my life. Along the way I stumble onto a career path that I am very excited about that had never occurred to me before my work with Leonard.
  • -Eva Pranis
  • I have found a career that brings me great satisfaction and is a perfect alignment with my values. I don’t know that I would have recognized this as my “dream job” if I hadn’t taken Leonard’s lifework course.
    -Angie Arnold
  • In a short period of time as Leonard’s coaching client, using his thought-provoking exercises, I was able to determine a major new career for myself, one that I really wanted, and I was able to take the necessary steps to begin that important change.
    -Wendy Frytak
  • I’ve tried several different careers, never feeling like I’d found the right fit. I started working with Leonard with a lot of general information about what I wanted but not a clue how to put that together into a plan to move forward. After working through his process, I have direction and feel I’ve finally found something that will “stick”.   Especially helpful for me was Leonard’s Ideal Day exercise, which allowed me to consider different options at a very detailed level, and I’m now excited to work towards making my “Ideal Day” a reality.
    -Missy I.
  • Leonard’s “Lifework” book and coaching are just the thing to start and sustain forward momentum. His approach is straightforward and focused but also inspired by creativity and fun. I’ve learned more about what really motivates me, created a lifework mission statement, and develop a practical career advancement plan. Leonard is a great coach!
    – J Berg
  • I credit your Lifework process with helping me identify the skills I most enjoy using, the type of organization I would like to work for, and to think creatively about how I might combine the two.
    -Richard Wells
  • I have attended many presentations and workshops in the career/lifework field. After a while the presenters all start to sound the same…[but] Leonard’s approach is very original, creative and fun. His approach gives you a new angle on topics….refreshing and well worth my time.

  • Courage, integrity, and vision are three key qualities of a great leader. As a group facilitator, lifework coach, and keynote speaker, Leonard Lang not only models these qualities, he inspires them in others. When it comes to Leonard’s work, I’ve discovered from first-hand experience that you can count on one simple fact–Leonard will bring a fun, creative approach and remarkable insight to every individual, group, or situation that he meets.
