Career Coaching

Career coaching is an invaluable tool for taking your career to the next level. Our team of career coaches are specially equipped to work with those interested in career opportunities in policy, advocacy, organizing, and political leadership. We start by gaining insight into your background, preferred pathways, and goals to provide you with the next steps you need to achieve them.

Many LEE members are matched with a personal coach who can provide a range of career services. However, career coaching is available in a few different formats, to best meet all members. Here are the five different coaching services available:

  1. Career Consultation: This is a one-time call that may lead to either a longer coaching relationship or a different type of career support. This is for members who may be unsure what type of career services match your interests, need support on just one part of the search process, or have a long timeline for career transition.
  2. Career Onramp: This self-guided module allows you to work through career goals and receive optional coaching feedback on application materials and work products.
  3. Group Coaching: This 8-week course allows you to work through specific pre-recorded modules and complete assignments to bring you closer to entering a role in policy, advocacy, or organizing.
  4. Executive Coaching: This format includes personalized one-on-one calls over a 3-month period to enhance your leadership and impact. It’s typically reserved for members who are pursuing senior policy, advocacy, or organizing roles.
  5. 1:1 Career Coaching: This model is best suited for mid- to senior-leaders seeking a new role in policy, advocacy, or organizing. You’ll be connected to a personal coach who will work with you to set-up a plan and next steps over a 3-month period. 
  6. 90-Day Success Coaching: If you’ve landed a new policy, advocacy, or organizing role, you can access support for building relationships, aligning on goals and priorities, and exploring equity leadership.
