Find your happiness. Boost your confidence. Play to your strengths. Create a plan.
Are you at a turning point in life with a new opportunity for change? Are you unsure how to navigate the next steps forward?
Whether you’re working toward a promotion, took a career break and want to get back to work, starting a business, or are simply unsure of your next move, now is the time to join us on a journey of improved self-awareness.
"Embrace What's Next" is an intentional program with our CliftonStrengths coaches where we navigate through a different and intentional topic each week. In this program with like-minded women, you will find clarity, confidence, and create an actionable plan to move forward.
We are experts in behavior change and we know the greatest room for personal improvement isn’t where you’re weakest, but rather where you’re strongest. This leadership development program is designed to help you move forward with tangible tools and a roadmap as you transition to a new role, career, life phase, or circumstances.
More information about the virtual cohort can be found below. The virtual cohort is our most comprehensive program. It meets once a week, for 6 weeks on a specified date and time with Gallup-certified facilitators and like-minded women. Please contact us for the next cohort dates.
We offer three options for our Embrace What's next program:
1. Embrace What's Next On-Demand
2. Embrace What's Next On-Demand Plus, with 2 Coaching Sessions

View this short webinar that introduces you to "Embrace What's Next," where we highlight each module so you can determine if this program is right for you. You'll also meet the creators, Sara Regan, President of Strengths Now, and Jessica Selchan, Executive Coach. They will share stories of highly successful women who completed this self-paced training and how the program helped them find a new pathway forward.
Our Embrace What's Next On-Demand program is offered with coaching, and without coaching. The on-demand program is the same for both. With the On-Demand Plus program, we offer two, 45-minute personalized coaching sessions with our coaches for those that want to explore your individual talents and strengths with a professional coach and receive one-on-one team guidance to maximize your talents.
First, please know...We've got you.
You belong. We respect your journey and are honored to help you navigate your next steps. We value the diversity of our women and know that we all have something to learn from each other.
We kick off the program with an introduction to your personal strengths using the Clifton Strengths assessment. When you take the assessment, you uncover your unique combination of 34 CliftonStrengths themes. Together, the themes explain a simple but profound human behavior element: what's right with people. Individually, each theme gives you a way to describe what you naturally do best and how to play to your strengths.
You arrive at session one with a boost of confidence and a solid grounding in who you are. This program involves self-reflection and connection with others. And each session thereafter brings a new concept, group discussion, group polling (so that we hear from everyone based on comfort level), and so on. We also leverage breakout rooms to inspire conversations with your cohort and commit to weekly actions to move forward in embracing what's next.
Modules each week:
It's a journey
In addition to understanding your unique strengths, you will also be part of an incredible women's community with professional coaches. We know that women learn and grow better as part of a group—a cohort. You will be part of an inspirational group with like-mind women who are embracing what's next with you. Fostering genuine trust and respect, this program provides an interactive, intentional, and dynamic setting for women to discover their strengths, transition to new beginnings, and get more of what they want.
We welcome you to join us for a weekly mediation/yoga or connect with our expert resume review team. As you complete the program, you will have made strong connections that last, and you'll be welcomed into our alumni network with a place to rejuvenate, hear success stories, seek input, or pop into a strengths seminar. Moving forward, our clients report increased confidence and less anxiety as they approach their transition.
"I recently attended the Embrace What’s Next program and was so impressed by the experience. Sara, Jessica, and Danielle were amazing. They were organized, flexible, encouraging, and knowledgeable as they led our team through this self-reflective journey. The exercises were highly insightful as to what I need and what I bring to both my professional and personal lives. I appreciated interacting with other women and learning about how our strengths and areas in need of development shape us. I feel more confident in knowing what my next steps look like and how to get there. Highly recommend to other women contemplating a work or life change."

"I recently completed Embrace What's Next and I found it extremely helpful in identifying my next steps and my vision. As a new business owner in the midst of starting up a new venture, the program gave me a framework in how to utilize my strengths and realize where I could and need to ask for help. The connections with other women were invaluable as well. As a result of participating in this program, I have identified a clear path and am more confident in how to realize my goals."
