Hi! If we haven't yet met, I'm Coach Darcy Eikenberg, and I help smart professionals make better decisions, faster, in their lives at work. I've helped thousands of people navigate tricky career situations and since you found your way here, maybe you'd like a little help, too!
Over the years, my team and I have created hundreds of articles, checklists, classes and videos to help you figure out what to do. Most are 100% free! We’ve compiled the best advice right here, organized by situations we see happen the most frequently.
Here's what I know—everyone hits roadblocks at work from time to time. The trick is to not let those struggles stop you. Start scanning the situations below and find the tools and ideas that can help you NOW. ⤵
I'm on a mission to help us change our lives at work without having to change everything in our lives, especially during times of great change (and face it—when AREN'T we managing change?). I'm a coach to high-performing leaders and teams at organizations such as The Coca-Cola Company, Microsoft, State Farm, Deloitte Consulting, and more. I also speak on career and personal growth issues, plus I teach leadership and manager development strategies that work in the new world of work.
I'm an International Coaching Federation (ICF) Professional Certified Coach (or PCC), former principal and communication consulting business leader at Hewitt Associates (now part of Alight Solutions), and graduated from Northwestern University. I'm honored to be quoted regularly in the media, including the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Thrive Global, Yahoo Finance and others.
In all of what I do, I try to bring a sense of encouragement and humor to serious matters in our work and careers, offering simple, practical ways we can transform our lives at work, right where we are, right now. I'm glad you're here.
