Leading with Your Strengths, Passions, and Values to Live Life to the Fullest

BY KATY BOYCHUK
@ VOL 7 ON SEP 20, 2018

Bouncing from contract to contract was not Katy Boychuk’s idea of a long-term career plan. Last year, she took a purposeful pause to be intentional with her next steps.  She hired a Life Coach to guide her journey, (re)branded herself, and leveraged her resources to explore a new career path. What started as a career development journey, became so much more as she discovered how to lead by her strengths, passions and values, in every aspect of her life.
