“The first step, my son, which one makes in the world, is the one on which depends the rest of our days.." -Voltaire
If you're currently in college or working on your post-graduate degree
you're in the process of figuring out what's next for you and how to properly start your career path,
please know that the answers to these questions will become one of the most important decision of your life and you will feel the impact of this decision for years to come.
In spite of everything you might've heard or even observed:
Let me tell you about The Career Leap Method, an inquiry based process that grounds you in your values,
creates a map of career possibilities
navigates you to the destination of your next career leap.
And of course,
you could read career books and continue your discovery on your own...
While through out our life we're taught how to acquire subject matter knowledge, get up to speed with new technologies and even sharpen soft skills, we don't get educated about how to align our lives to our values.
we spend a significant part of our lives at work.
according to the recent Gallup polls, only about 15% of workforce experiences satisfaction.
on the other side of the spectrum we hear loud voices follow your passion! follow your passion! and while there is evidence that it might've worked for a few, it is not clear what to do for the rest of us...
This is why we developed The Career Leap Method.
The premise behind The Career Leap Method is simple. If you ever feel stuck, unsatisfied, miserable or anything but elated at your work, hobby or just about anything you do, more likely than not they are not aligned with you values.
Even if you're producing results, accomplishments and successes that the rest of the world finds astonishing... The only thing that counts in the matters of fulfillment is whether they stack up to your inner measuring stick, that purely represents your values.
But if you are clear about your values -- your choices, communication, and people and organizations you align with will take you on the path of meaning and fulfillment.
This is how we do it.
Hello, I am Misha Rubin. I left my corporate career to focus on activities that spark light in my heart and make a difference for others. One of those projects is The Career Leap.
Through out past over twenty years, I dove fully into both material, business and corporate worlds as well as spiritual, inner and ontological realms. My mission is to bring both paradigms to empower people.
Till recently I was a partner at a big four management consulting & accounting firm, where I spent 15 glorious years of my career. I managed over hundred-million-dollar worth of projects; navigated dozens of corporate cultures; advised hundreds of clients; built countless number of strategies, processes and systems; managed and guided careers of hundreds of people.
For two years I was the partner in charge of the Flexibility & Work-Life Balance initiative that created significant quantifiable and recognized impact for our employees.
While being a busy-bee management consultant, I released a music album of my original songs "Are We Ready" (under Misha Lyuve), developed a jewelry line, wrote a blog, traveled the world, adopted three kids, and expressed my passion about children causes as a board member of Worldwide Orphans.
"Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage."
