Elevate Your Career Academy

You are ready for something different.

It is exhausting to show up at your job every day, knowing your season in your position is past its expiration date.

You’ve written your resignation letter a million times in your your head. You might even have it printed and ready to hand in, or saved as a draft in Gmail.

The problem is, you need a plan for what comes next before you wave goodbye to your current position.

Sure, the company you work for is cool, and the people are cool, too. But the work.

The wooooork.

The work you do is no longer aligned with your gifts, your goals, what you want for yourself, or the way you are called to serve the world.

You wake up every morning and pray and listen for direction because you know God is calling you to make a move. You’re just not sure what step to take next.

You spend the day at work procrastinating on most of your tasks, or forcing yourself to do them. You get your work done, but it’s starting to drain you more and more.

You go back and forth inside your own mind about leaving or staying.

And you go to bed tired from going back forth in your mind, still listening and waiting for an answer, hoping your next step will become clear.

If this where you are in your career, Elevate Your Career Academy is for you.

But why now?

Something in you shifted. Sure, you are grateful for the job and the opportunities it has given you to this point.

You’ve been able to
  • Develop relationships within your company and industry
  • Stretch your skills
  • Manage teams and projects
  • Learn new systems and processes
  • Get promoted and earn more
  • Grow your professional brand and get opportunities outside of work to lead and serve

But you been called out for more. You are tired of playing small and knowing it. 

You’re in that place where you’re realizing that you’ve only stayed this long because you were playing it safe. You know the job market can be touch and go, so why would you leave a steady, great paying position?

At least that’s what your family and friends have asked you. They’re really concerned for your security…and to be honest, so are you.

But there is this tension in your heart now because you know you are called to more. The light switch has been turned on and you can see clearly how you no longer fit in your current position.

God has confirmed it for you over and over again in the past few months, and you know it is time to step into that more:

More alignment with your skills and gifts.
More development and growth opportunities.
More fulfillment and connection to the work.
More income.
More connection to your purpose.

If you are tired of playing small and living below where you know God has called you to be…

It’s time to elevate.

elevate (a verb): raise or lift (you) up to a higher position.

Basically, we’re leveling up your career.

I’m Tiffany F. Southerland

These days, I teach women how to leverage their gifts so they can maximize their career success and contribute where they are called. 

I was a junior associate at a law firm when I and I got an amazing opportunity to travel out of state to help prepare a witness for a deposition (basically an intense interview to learn more information about a case). 

By this point, I had already been going back and forth in my mind for months about whether I wanted to continue to be a litigator, but I still wanted to do well and serve my team in the best way I could.

I got the travel information and packed for the 1.5 day trip. I packed my charcoal gray suit – the one that made me feel extra professional and corporate – and slipped my laptop in my lady messenger bag. 

I had been working on this case for months. I knew the documents in and out and was excited to see a different part of practice.

The morning arrived. The witness was prepared, documents were tabbed, and my pen wrist, and notebook were ready to take all the notes.

We walked into the room and, truth be told, I was extra nervous. I followed the senior attorney’s lead and positioned myself on his right side around the table. As was customary, everyone in the room stated their name for the record as the court reporter made note of everyone present.

It was time for me to speak and I nervously said my name for the record.

And almost as soon as I heard the words leave my mouth, I felt like something shifted in my mind with the clarity of a snap that breaks an otherwise silence moment

The words I’d spoken sounded right in the sense that I had said what I was supposed to say. But it felt…not quite right. Like I was saying something that was out of place for me. Like I was in a place I wasn’t supposed to be.

The next morning, I woke up thinking it was time for me to get serious about making a change..

I had already started having conversations months before about my career uncertainty, and that moment in the deposition was confirmation. I spent the next several weeks talking with mentors and a few trusted friends about my job search, and applying to new openings that might be a good fit in light of my come-to-Jesus-deposition moment.

After a few weeks of applications, I got 1 interview, 1 job offer, and accepted a new position in law school admissions.

My lightbulb moment happened in September 2012 – I submitted my resignation before Christmas and brought in the new year with a new career.

My goal is to I help (fly) high-achieving women like you who have had their own moments of clarity stop going back and forth in their minds about the way forward and start taking steps toward greater connection and fulfillment in their careers.

Elevate Your Career Academy IS for you if…

  • You just had your own lightbulb moment
  • You are beginning to realize and accept that you don’t have to stay where you are not fulfilled or developing
  • You know your career does not validate or define you
  • You are still looking for and praying for confidence, clarity, and direction around your next
  • You are tired of not using your gifts and moving in the direction you know you are called to

Elevate Your Career Academy is NOT for you if

  • You are looking for a quick fix to your career
  • You only want resume and cover letter feedback
  • You are not self-motivated and not willing to make time for you
  • You are comfortable staying where you know you no longer belong – you prefer playing it safe than choosing to pursue your purpose
  • You think being fulfilled in your career is unrealistic

I hired Tiffany as my coach to help me navigate through a career shift. She taught me how to appreciate my victories, celebrate my strengths, and get clear about my goals as I prepared to further my education. I truly valued her views and analysis of problems I was dealing with. She is a natural, and her advice/guidance has led me towards reaching my own personal goals.

Tiffany’s direct and encouraging coaching style has been an integral part of my overall development. She helped me discover where my personal passions and interest can intersect with professional pursuits. We were then able to articulate a career vision, identify opportunities aligned with that vision, and develop strategies to pursue and secure employment and education opportunities to support my career advancement.
