Meet Your Mentors

Our program was developed by renowned career coach Kathy Simmons (founder and principal at Metier Associates) in partnership with long-time collaborator Kathleen Fournier whose career includes experience in community facilitation and career strategy.

Kathy Simmons

For more than two decades, Kathy has provided counsel and strategic advice to thousands of C-suite executives and board members. Each Mindful Career Building participant will have the opportunity to meet with her – and benefit from her unparalleled expertise on all aspects of career management and recruitment – three times throughout the program (a value of more than $1500).

Kathleen, who will be your guide through this process, will be joined by a host of respected thought leaders and subject matter experts who will provide knowledge, insight and inspiration for each step on this exciting and life-changing journey. In weekly group coaching sessions, she will lead you through exercises and projects to practice the skills you will learn throughout the modules.

Together with a host of subject matter experts, we are here to help you:

Assess your strengths and weakness and implement a plan for improvement

Harness the best resources and test your skills along the way

Address your challenges so you can propel forward


…but only after thoughtful and deliberate consideration as to where you want to land. We are your trusted partners and are excited to take the journey with you.
