Neville Career Consulting provides tailored guidance to high-achieving professionals navigating critical points in their careers and to organizations looking to maximize their human capital. Founded in 2007 to provide knowledgeable and practical guidance to highly skilled professionals on identifying the range of their options and pursuing them successfully, we expanded our practice to include executive coaching to help clients advance in their careers, whether or not they are looking for a new position. Through coaching, clients build skills that lead to impressive results and increased satisfaction rather than switching jobs to find they encounter similar challenges in their new roles.
Rather than an off-the-shelf format, we work in partnership with clients to build their capacity to develop and execute tailored strategies that sustain progress over time. In addition to working with individuals, we partner with organizations to develop tailored workshops and presentations, often in conjunction with executive coaching for their members or managers. These clients have included national and international professional services firms, associations, large non-profit organizations, and government entities.
In navigating the workplace, many highly educated and talented professionals confront challenges that require them to operate outside of their comfort zones. These can include communicating effectively in highly visible or potentially volatile situations; securing agreement among colleagues, clients, and stakeholders on desired outcomes and how to achieve them; managing high-stakes projects with far-flung teams on tight timelines; and determining a pathway forward to advance their careers.
Kate Neville works with clients facing such challenges to help them leverage and articulate their skills, identify the full range of options, clarify goals and priorities, and develop strategies to advance from Point A to Point B. In working with her, clients report heightened confidence in their abilities to successfully meet expectations, a sense of stability that helps sustain them over time, and new perspective that often has far-reaching ramifications.
Kate brings substantial management and policy experience to her coaching work and has held senior positions in for-profit and non-profit entities and in the public sector. Having started her career practicing law, she has also worked in research and development, project management, policy analysis, and spent more than a decade in management consulting before starting her own business. This breadth of perspective has proven to be a valuable asset in advising clients on developing practical strategies that produce impressive results and help them advance their careers.
She presents frequently on topics related to professional advancement and has developed and delivered workshops for numerous professional organizations, including associations, federal agencies, foundations, and universities. Her work has been featured in The Washington Post, Roll Call, Kiplinger’s, and YahooFinance.
Kate graduated from Princeton University magna cum laude, earned a law degree cum laude from Harvard Law School, and is a graduate of the Coro Leadership New York program. You can follow her on Twitter at @howtoaddvalue.
