Does this sound familiar?

You did everything you were supposed to do in your career, but this isn’t how you thought it was supposed to turn out. You got the education, you invested in professional development, and you work hard to advance. And yet, you’re still not where you want to be professionally, financially, or in career fulfillment.



You're tired of:

  • Not having the credibility, earnings or impact you thought you would have by now

  • Trying to look like you have it together but struggling internally with self-doubt or uncertainty

  • Wondering if your lack of results is because you're a woman, or some other unknown obstacle

  • Feeling intimidated by negotiations – for money, resources, and/or responsibilities

If you’re ready to advance in your career on your terms, get paid what you deserve, and increase your impact these programs are for you.


Hi! I’m Lelia. I started this business because women kept coming to me for support in workplace negotiations and career decision-making. Several years in, I’ve helped thousands of women increase their impact and leadership capacity, and I’m positively giddy about helping women connect with and achieve their vision of career fulfillment.

The clients I work with develop clarity about their professional aspirations, rather than the goals or job titles they feel they should want.

When we work together, you’ll develop a personalized and attainable vision of career fulfillment that includes what you’re good at, what people will pay you for, and fully integrates what you enjoy and how you want to spend your time.

Through my signature system for career fulfillment, you’ll develop:

  • Clarity about what career fulfillment means to you and the skills to achieve it

  • Connection to a network of badass, ambitious women who can provide support and accountability

  • Confidence to advocate for yourself and achieve the income, leadership opportunities, and impact you desire

  • Commitment to a realistic action plan to accomplish your vision

"Two months ago, I made a decision to invest in myself. After working with Lelia, I learned my value and felt empowered to ask for what I deserved.

- Ciji

Ciji wanted to switch careers and move into a new industry. After working with Lelia, she:

  • Created a clear vision of her goals

  • Changed careers and secured a phenomenal position in her target profession

  • Negotiated a package that increased her salary by 30% and included a signing bonus


"Lelia helped me develop tangible tools to implement personally and professionally, and she completely flipped my approach to negotiating.

Lelia's framework is fresh and instantly applicable. She asks the hard questions that produce authentic and personal results."

- Charlotte 


“Lelia asked all the right questions to understand my needs in transitioning from my previous job.” 

- Dina

Dina contacted Lelia after receiving a job offer with her dream company.  The position was a lateral move from her current position with only a slightly higher salary, which made her hesitant to take the role. She wanted to advance in her career and felt conflicted about what to do. After working with Lelia, she:

  • Developed clarity about her career goals and how this role fit (and didn’t fit) into her long term aspirations

  • Negotiated a salary that was a 17% increase from her current role and an improved vacation package

  • Enthusiastically accepted a position at an organization aligned with her interests after she secured an opportunity for a salary increase and promotion over a specific time table



"Lelia's energy, confidence, and approachable personality instills optimism and courage in her clients. I found Lelia's optimism infectious and her ideas empowering.
