Fulfilling Career Growth

On Your Own Terms

You’ve been feeling it for a while: That “itch.”

You’ve paid your dues in your career, or even made it, but you know you’re capable of more. 

 

You’re existing but not satisfied. You’re finding yourself at an inflection point. You sense there’s more out there for you, but you’re not sure exactly what.

 

Now, it doesn't mean that life is easy.

In fact, you feel up to your eyeballs in overwork and overwhelm. You want more but you’re worried that adding anything else to your plate might be the straw that broke the camel’s back.

 

But you’re watching others find their next thing. They’re getting opportunities or promotions and you’re thinking, ‘what’s my thing?’ It seems like there’s no room for advancement, no one to champion your next step, or no clear path to grow without giving up what you love.

 

You feel like there’s more you could do to reach your potential, but you’re not quite sure what that looks like (yet).

You wonder, is there something more?

You want to use your skills and talents to do work that matters, and feels fulfilling.

But maybe you no longer feel challenged by your job. You just want to get in and get out at the end of the day, and you find yourself not sharing things about your job or projects because you’re no longer excited or inspired.

 

You’re feeling invisible, like you’re not being heard, appreciated, and valued for your gifts.

You’re not sure what your next step in a career that fills you up looks like,

but you are not satisfied with what you are doing anymore.

But you don't exactly know how to move forward.

(and the questions are eternally looping in your brain.)

 → Should I just be satisfied with what I have?

 → I don’t know what my goals are. How do I decide what to work for?

 → How do I know that’s “the right” path?

 → Will I have to take a pay cut to find something more fulfilling? Can I do that?

Imagine having fulfillment, flexibility and freedom in your career.

You look forward to work because it’s continuously creative and collaborative. It’s personally and financially fulfilling.

 You’re feeling engaged and excited to go to work every day.

 →You have more flexibility, more autonomy, more serving your purpose.

 You didn’t have to give up what you love to ‘have it all.’ Because you actively chose what ‘all’ means to you.

All you need is the guidance, support and proven strategies to get to the next level of your career on your own terms

One-one-One Coaching

A Six Month Career Coaching & Acceleration Journey

How it Works

1

Confidence

We build the confidence to go after what you want. We identify and give you practical skills to move past any limiting beliefs or mindsets that are holding you back. This way, we make sure you’re truly going after what you truly want (instead of defaulting to what you think you can have.)

2

Career Clarity

We’ll develop a clear plan for what you truly want in the next stage of your career, (and untangle it from what others want for you.) We use the design thinking process to develop a clear vision for your career – whether its new goals, a title or even a career pivot – and then translate it into a step-by-step plan you can take action on.

3

Action Support

We support you as you take bold action. Whether it’s becoming a thought leader in your field, pitching a new initiative or pivoting careers, we’ll support you through the inevitable ups and downs being bold and making your career the one you love.

What's in the Program?

It’s not easy to change your life and ask for more in your career. After working with hundreds of clients, I know what parts of this process are challenging, where you’ll face uncertainty or resistance and where you’ll need that extra support. 

 

I’ve built this one-on-one coaching experience so I can help you at every step of the way with:

One-on-One Coaching Calls

You’ll have one-on-one calls throughout your coaching journey at key junctures, whether it’s to talk about potential career growth paths, to brainstorm on the right visibility strategy for you, or to take stock of your effectiveness at saying no and setting boundaries.

Personalized Program Strategy

Upon joining the program you’ll schedule a one-on-one call with me to discuss what you most want to change in your career, and therefore what your personal coaching journey will be.

Biweekly Group Coaching & Office Hours

In our biweekly calls you’ll get a chance to ask for strategy and advice on things like the pitch you’re creating or dealing with a toxic coworker. And you’ll get a chance to be inspired by and learn from the stories of other motivated women.

Private Community

In our private community app, you can get advice, share a win or get perspective from others on their journey and connect with others as you go through your own journey of levelling up.

Templates, Trainings & Tools

From templates like my “Cover Letter Mad Libs” to a pitch memo to pitch a new initiative to your company, we have a template for that! Because we want to make it easy to take action and get that upleveled career you want.

What will you achieve in the program?

The results that come from this are widely varied – they’re as unique as you are. But opportunities just magically seem to show up when you get clear on what you want. 

Here's just a few things women have achieved:
Rebecca Michaelson

“Growing my career used to feel ambiguous and confusing, but now I know there are always small, practical actions I can take regularly to thrive.”

-REBECCA MICHELSON

Alexa-Francisco

“[Your coaching] helped me plan and actively be more visible in my industry… I actually just sent a proposal out this week for some new work I pulled in!”

-ALEXA FRANCISCO

Taylor Davis

The program helped me to identify that as an expertise I wanted to build, but find my own spin on it… It has opened up all sorts of new avenues for revenue and research and ways to be creative that I didn’t have before.”

-TAYLOR DAVIS

by the end of your time in One-on-One Coaching

You’ll know exactly what you want in the next stage of your career

and you’ll have the support to make it happen . Whether it’s creating your own opportunities at work, a job search or a career pivot.

Hi I’m Mia "Maya" Scharphie

I’m a career coach, a women’s empowerment facilitator (and a designer too.)

And I don’t think ambition is a dirty word.

 

But I think we each need to define our ambition – what it is we want to create with our work and our precious energy and time on earth.

I spent a lot of years feeling uncertain. I knew I wanted more, but I couldn't figure out exactly what that meant for me. I was overly busy and my inner critic was always there in the background.

But finally, I decided that I had to be the one to decide what I wanted in my career. So I took my training in design thinking – and applied it to the design of my career path.

Once I did, amazing things happened! I worked with amazing clients like Friends of the High Line and Americans for the Arts. I was named one of Impact Design Hub’s Social Impact Design 40 under 40.


I’ve since worked with hundreds of women and have helped them grow in their careers  – on their own terms. They’ve moved into senior leadership roles, launched new, innovative programs, and achieved $25,000 raises. 

My passion is helping women untangle the overlapping threads to make sense of their work, and build the careers they love.

One-on-One Coaching is perfect for you if...

  • Have passed the pay your dues phase of your career,  or have hit a plateau – and now you’re thinking,  ‘what next?’
  • Are not satisfied to just have a job you dont care about. You want purpose and fulfilmment and creativity within your job.
  • Are willing to push yourself to the edge of your comfort zone by supersizing your goals, or doing things when you dont have it 100% figured out.
  • Worry that you’re too complex to find your pathway.

One-on-One Coaching is
not for you if....

  • Are still in the first few years of your career.
  • Aren’t looking for deeper purpose, fulfillment or creative growth from your career. 
  • Aren’t willing to take small calculated risks with your career or to do things when you don’t feel 100% prepared.
  • Know exactly what you want in the next stage ofyour career and don’t need a larger strategy.

Changing your life isn’t usually easy.

Progress isn’t usually linear, and you'll face fear, pitfalls and blockers along the way.​

But that’s why I designed One-on-One Coaching to give you clarity on your next move, and the support to take bold action. 

I’ll help you bounce back when you run into challenges, get less perfectionist and be more nimble and kind to yourself.

I'll celebrate what you achieve and also help you use it to make a better work culture for others that follow.
