"Your personality is so warm and supportive. It was the perfect environment for me to ask questions and express personal doubts. It was also the perfect way to turn my Kolbe results into actionable changes.

"You're not a conventional coach/counselor/advisor and that's awesome because traditional, weirdly, has not worked for this erstwhile rule follower.

I cannot speak more highly of your integrity, rye wit, intuitive eye and efficacy in validating the humanness of the struggle to identify one’s work in the world."

You are not the problem


You live in a society that demands conformity and doesn’t want you to trust yourself.

I promise you that no matter how lost you feel, how disconnected you are from your own desires, you can discover what you really want to do.

And I’m here to help you.

ABOUT

I’m Shannon Post and what I know is, if you hate your job right now, it isn’t your fault. We live in a culture that depends on people believing work is supposed to suck. The good news is you have the power to change that. This is a skill you can learn.

I can also tell you that you're not alone. I searched for the work I was meant to do for well over a decade. I’ve had crappy minimum wage jobs and what on paper were “dream jobs.”  I was a professional classical singer performing on the most famous stages in New York City. I was a dog musher for a prominent Iditarod racer in Alaska. And I was a CIO and top senior IT executive leading teams in technology and mapping.

In each case where I had “made it” in society’s eyes, I was miserable. None of the jobs felt like me. 

I wasn’t fulfilled, I wasn’t fully using my natural talents (mostly because I didn’t understand what they were) and I wasn’t making the kind of impact I wanted to make in my world.

I’d tried to find the perfect career so many times without success that I thought something was seriously wrong with me. Like maybe I wasn’t allowed to have a career I loved and felt passionate about, or maybe having a career I was naturally good at was just a pipe dream.

If you can relate, you need to know that it’s not you. It’s the box you were trained by society to try to fit yourself into. That box, the traditional career path, doesn’t work for everyone—and that’s okay. There is fulfilling work out there that fits you & your personality like a glove. And it’s my goal to help you find it.

My work is informed by my own experience building careers in vastly different industries, over twenty years supervising, managing, leading, and mentoring employees. My own mentors, continuing education, and my studies at the University of Montana, the University of Virginia, and Stanford University. 

But the thing I’m most proud of is that, against all odds, the life I have now is the dream I had long ago. Alaska. Based in Talkeetna under the shadow of Denali and the Alaska Range. The ability to make an impact in people’s lives & improve the world around me. Alaska is breathtaking, and I am indebted to the Denaʼina & Ahtna people and their traditional territory where I now get to live & work.

I’m an INFP and my Kolbe index is 3-2-10-4. So I’m an introverted, empathic, innovative disruptor. I’ve been certified as a coach by Kathy Kolbe, a leading authority on human instinct, and Dr. Martha Beck, a Harvard-educated sociologist specializing in human behavior. 

I had a boss who said my results always broke the barriers of what he thought was possible.

Now I want to help you break the barriers you face and so you can change your world and the world of everyone around you.
