 LIONSOLOGY- What is it? 

Programs cover transition, career management, leadership

You are:

A woman passed over for promotion – and don’t know why
At the Manager, Director or VP level and in transition
Working and hate your job
Convinced your boss is crazy and abusive
Maybe you got fired or laid off
Waiting, hoping work will get better. It doesn’t.
Postponing your happiness telling yourself it is for the good of your family
An individual who values security, stability and wealth
Someone who has been told you ‘made it’. It doesn’t feel like it.
40 or 50 and wonder if this is all there is to life
Feeling alone, old and unwanted as if no one wants your skills
Certain that you should know how to manage your career by now and feel embarrassed that you don’t

Sound like you? 

Session open to men…
