Specializing in Entrepreneurial Coaching for the Engineer at Heart
Know you are capable of more – more impact, more influence, more responsibility- but not feeling fully equipped to deliver? Wanting to create something bigger than the routine office job allows for? As an engineer, there comes a time when all the equations and formulas no longer serve your career goals and aspirations, and that time is graduation. Navigating the “real world” of corporate politics and entrepreneurial endeavors requires skills they don’t teach in school – skills like effective communication, relationship building (and repairing), understanding and influencing others (ethically), and how to effectively manage your time (and others), and taking appropriately managed risks (going for what you want!). Whether you are a new graduate or an old hand, with coaching for engineers, it’s possible to learn new tricks in order to more effectively implement change, manage, lead, or simply venture out on your own and create the career and lifestyle you crave. With a solid engineering career coach in your corner, we can harness your innate talents with new strategies, and tactics, and skills make the professional impact and create the career and the way of life you truly desire.
Mike Gathers offers group and one-one-one coaching virtually and in person in his office in Golden, Colorado. He earned a bachelors in chemical engineering from the Colorado School of Mines and went on to work various roles of engineering, supervision, and management in the high tech and energy sectors. A student of the late R. E. D. “Gene” Woolsey, he completed a masters in engineering and technology management with a speciality in industrial psychology. After a dozen years in industry, he made a major pivot into working as a licensed psychotherapist after earning a masters in counseling psychology from Buddhist inspired Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. Now, after nearly a decade working as a licensed therapist, he has revived his engineering and management past and merged it with his recent work as an entrepreneur and licensed therapist in order to coach engineers into their own greatness.
