For many, finding balance in life is an ever-elusive goal. Achieving “balance” only comes when one realizes that work and life are so closely intertwined that you must address both in order to achieve your goals.
In our experience, what happens in your life (family, relationships, etc.) has a tremendous impact on your work. In addition, both positive and negative changes in your work (job loss, toxic co-workers, a promotion, entrepreneurship, etc.) impacts your family, relationships, home-life, etc. Stowell and Associates provides a number of Career Management services to help you work through the challenges of daily work and life.
“When I first met Mr. Stowell, I was floundering in a job I hated with a boss who didn’t give me the time of day. Tom is a true professional and a very calming presence. He immediately helped me to feel at ease and recognize that the situation that I was in was having a dramatic impact on my ability to get up every day and go to a place I didn’t feel valued. He helped me to develop a plan to deal with the issues I had at work while focusing my attention on finding a new job. He provided tremendous support during my search and helped me every step of the say. He helped me to reframe my current situation so that I didn’t sabotage my chances at acing an interview. Within six months I accepted a position with an awesome employer and can’t thank Tom enough.”

“I contacted Tom for help with transitioning to a new position with my organization. I climbed the ladder pretty quickly and found myself in a position to supervise a team of ten with no supervisory experience under my belt. Tom worked with me to understand how to transition from an individual contributor to a supervisor responsible for establishing a culture for my team. We worked together for a year and it was like having a crash-course in managing from someone who has a very strong sense of how to work with people. My success in my first year as a supervisor is in large part to Tom’s guidance. He is a true professional.”

“After twenty years with my previous employer, I was nervous to make a change. I had worked my way up from an hourly position to a senior executive role and didn’t know how to manage a job search for a similar position elsewhere. Tom helped me take stalk of my skills, talents, and value proposition and launch a search for a position that fit my “wish list”. Tom helped me with everything from interview preparation to negotiation of a complex offer. I would have missed out on a number of “perks” if Tom hadn’t reviewed the agreement and made suggestions for negotiation. I can’t thank him enough for all his help – it was well worth the investment.”
