You know there are unwritten rules to getting ahead at work that haven’t been shared. Office politics may have stopped you from applying for a higher job, or you feel unqualified because you don’t have an MBA. Even if you work at a company for a while, understanding management dynamics or office culture can be confusing.
It’s really tempting to think you need the right school, the right boss, or years of experience to take the next step in your career.
That is not true. Having a successful career and getting paid what you’re worth doesn’t depend on a different boss or another degree. It takes action. SkyRise will prepare you with a roadmap to rise.

A career coach helps unlock all the secrets of managing your career. If you have a mentor, great. SkyRise will serve as an added resource, a way to cross-check whether the advice you’re getting squares with some of the latest views.
If you lack a mentor, then consider SkyRise a friendly substitute. We can take your questions when you are making a decision at work and provide a shoulder to lean on when you need it by providing practical pointers on how to handle a range of situations that you’ll no doubt face in the workplace.
When you become a member of SkyRise, you’ll practice taking small steps to build self confidence and consistently learn the strategies that move your career forward. You belong to a community of colleagues making career moves with the support of thoughtful, trusted members.

Founder & CEO
I downloaded the SkyRise Interview Template to help me prep for a next-day interview and got so much more.
I used my five success stories to talk to my manager about a raise and stayed at my current company with a 12% increase in three months.
After the free workshop, I found a mentor! We meet monthly with a clear path to becoming Manager of Residency Programs.
I would never have stopped feeling intimidated without Shatriece!
SkyRise accelerated my career!
Area Sales Manager
I was skeptical of making an investment in career coaching but my current boss is frustrating, so I hired Shatriece to help create a structured and organized career roadmap.
I realized the best way to communicate with my boss, create status reports that get noticed, and now my boss is recommending me for a lead sales role.
