Hello, I am Misha.
Till not long ago, I was a partner at a "big four" management consulting firm. I managed $100M+ worth of projects; navigated dozens of corporate cultures; advised hundreds of clients; guided hundreds of careers.
Throughout my 20-year career I tried it all.
I hopped from job to job to find "it."
I stayed with one company for 15 years hoping "it" would strike me.
I took a year off to figure out "my passion."
I added work activities that I found meaningful and created fulfilling endeavors outside of work...
I liked many of my jobs and there were times when I was really excited. But it never felt this is it.
Even when I became a partner at a "big four" management consultancy and got a title, paycheck and recognition...
I couldn't shake off that creepy feeling that I'm just wasting my life away.
So I inquired, studied and explored...
I'll never forget this July morning. There were probably thousand things contributed to this moment and it's still a mystery to me how it happened. But suddenly I knew exactly why it wasn't "it." More so, I had language to describe it and method to explain it to others. This was my moment of truth.
That was the start of The Career Leap method.
Finally after years of wondering and an unexpected moment of truth, I'm doing the work that makes a difference for others, taps into my unique talents and allows me to live my dream life.
My mission is to fill the world with empowered impactful humans. My programs are designed to fulfill that mission.
The experience of stuckness comes when you feel like you’ve tried everything and nothing has changed, and there's nothing you can see that will work...
But stuckness isn't the problem. It's a symptom that your paradigm of thinking isn't serving you anymore...
Paradigm of thinking is a network of believes, knowledge, assumptions and judgements. It's hard for you to notice it, because it's very similar to fish not noticing the water it swims in.
While your paradigm of thinking operates in the background, it mightily constructs the rational for your actions, justifies your results and shapes your experience of life.
So if you aspire for fresh ideas
for where and what you could do for work
you have to create a new paradigm of thinking.
That's exactly what The Career Leap method is designed for.
That career where you are engaged, empowered and alive - even though you don't know exactly what it is and where to find it - you'll discover it in this new paradigm of thinking.
The Career Leap method is designed for you to have an abundance of moments of truth.
You know this feeling: seemingly out of nowhere, there's a thought, often a simple one, that solves a puzzle of questions you've been trying to resolve for a while now. Suddenly, there is clarity about the situation and your next step. That's a moment of truth.
Moments of truth show up naturally when you're dismantling your old paradigm of thinking.
A new paradigm of thinking starts with awareness of self.
You will discover, understand and articulate intrinsic aspects of you that hold keys to how you experience meaning, fulfillment and your unique ingredients for success, what motivates you and how you work with others.
The new paradigm of thinking provides access to new ideas, actions and experiences.
This access will lead you to careers that are worthy of your time, effort and life.
Moments of truth: from "useful insights" to powerful choices and actions
4 Pillars of The Career Leap method:
1. Awareness: mastering how to dismantle disempowering beliefs; getting to know and articulating important aspects of self
2. Discovery: developing criteria to curate career opportunities and business ideas; identifying industries, organizations and leaders that match your criteria; making awareness-based choices
3. Preparation: assessing your career leap choices against your skills, experience and knowledge; learning to communicate in authentic, transparent and relevant ways with potential employers and connectors through written (resume, LinkedIn, introduction notes) and live interactions
4. Strike: being in action pursuing your career leap with confidence, clarity and structure

There Is a Method to Discovering Your Passion
Misha allowed me to step away from 'my job as means of survival' mindset and recall what I am actually passionate about in life and in my career. I've got back my spark, interest and curiosity about many aspects of my career that I stopped pursuing for some time. As a result, several new work opportunities surfaced immediately and I'm currently pursuing them.

Letting Go of Fear to Move Forward
I’m usually a very enthusiastic person, but lately I felt demotivated and needed to go back on track with my life goals and fulfilling my potential. Working with Misha was by far the best investment in myself and my career other than the grad school. I’ve learned to understand my inner drive, established career values, reiterated my strengths and am ready to go in any direction I choose with full confidence. No more “justified paralysis”! I’m ready to rock and roll and meet with my next CEO!

From Being Stuck to Freedom
I felt stuck in a career/job. Once I expressed my career values, approaching new companies becomes more than just connecting with a former colleague or applying for an open position, but rather a much deeper connection via common values. Because of the program I took actions outside of my comfort zone.
I had a great experience working with Misha overall, as he is very professional, personable and can really listen.
