"I had the pleasure of attending a workshop led by Victoria and Celine yesterday, all about getting 'unstuck', whether that be professionally or personally. It was a great session, with collaborative exercises on mindset and positive thinking, and I came out of it with some clear actions to take over the coming weeks to move myself forward."
Are you a professional working in a competitive environment? Is balance difficult to find or maintain? Do you ever wonder if your career is fulfilling you?
We’ve been there. We’ve worn the T-Shirt. We understand exactly how it feels!
We have over 30 years’ combined experience working in the tech space for multinational corporations like Microsoft, Google and eBay, in four countries. Between us we’ve held roles in operations, sales, project management, client management, team leadership, sales leadership and people management. We know how it is to work in Tech - it’s fast-paced, male-dominated and super competitive. Team and company reorganisation is constant. Ambiguity equals normality. Burnouts are commonplace. Huge corporations become difficult to navigate and require a certain tenacity and style. And amidst all of this, there is an intense pressure to perform. Where does that leave you?
In 2008, we met at Microsoft when we worked on our first project together - looking into happiness in the workplace. As we started digging into data and mapping out wellbeing across our organisation, we realised that wellbeing at work isn’t as straightforward a topic as many companies would like it to be.
Our paths took us on to other roles in other companies, and we both eventually ended up in management. We shared a major passion: helping others to develop their lives and careers. Independently and coincidentally, we both trained to become professional coaches. And then some time later our paths crossed again, and we started to discuss our dreams. What if we could create the lives we wanted, doing the very thing we both love to do? Rising Star was born of these dreams. We help professionals unlock their potential and overcome their self-limiting beliefs, so that they can achieve all the things they dream about — and maintain their personal wellbeing. In other words, we want to use our huge experience and give back to the next cohort of leaders - which is where you come in!
We believe that you deserve to live a fulfilling life. We believe that your wellbeing shouldn’t be overshadowed by your job. We believe that you can be successful and high-achieving at work, be an effective and well-respected leader, and still have balance across your personal life.
We offer 1:1 coaching, group coaching and corporate programmes tailored to meet the needs of professionals who are feeling stuck in their career, need support moving towards their goals, or feel dissatisfied with where they are.
