Are You an Academic Seeking "Out"...

...but can't envision your next step?

Once again, something--or rather, someone--I've come upon who is too good not to share. Her name is Shari Cohen, and she's the Principal at Intersections Resources, her coaching firm.

I know Shari through her work at Demos, where she currently heads up the Fellows program. Shari has been helping leaders (including thought leaders) solve problems more effectively for ten years and brings the depth of a political sociologist, the breadth of a scenario planner, and the insight of a coach and a teacher to her work coaching individuals and organizations. And let's just say she "gets" academics who decide to leave academia. She has a Ph.D. from Berkeley in political science.

Shari has worked with individuals in international development, health, philanthropy, advocacy, market research, technology, and publishing. (Organizational clients include the World Bank, Charney Research, Demos, SHARE, and the Carnegie Corporation.)

If you're wondering what it's like to work with a career coach, do give her a shout at sjc@intersectionsresources.net. Shari is generously offering a 20-minute sample session and a special rate on her five session package to readers of Girl with Pen. (Just mention that you heard about her through this post.)
