Live for Yourself (LFY) Consulting

Your coaching based leadership solution

We coach and develop intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs to find more meaning at work and in life

LFY Consulting, based in Chicago, IL, offers leadership and empowerment coaching and consulting services for intrapreneurial business professionals that are in managerial or directorial level positions and entrepreneurs that feel stuck or unfulfilled at work. They tend to be overworked but under utilized, lack clarity, are unsure about next steps in terms of their work or business, and despite professional success do not feel successful.

Too often people seek greater meaning in life and at work externally, such as from a new job or an entrepreneurial venture without ever actually finding meaning. The hard truth though, is that personal meaning is really an inside job. You need to focus on leading yourself. That’s where we can help, and that’s how we achieve results for our clients.

LFY Consulting bases its programs on two distinct and exclusive coaching systems, The Three C’s of Self Leadership© - Clarity, Confidence, and Control, and The LIVE System© - Life, Intentions, Values, and Expectations. Start a conversation to find out more and how we can help.

Everything I was doing at work, all of my “success” didn’t feel good. Nothing really felt meaningful and I was stuck. I knew a coaching program with LFY Consulting was going to be an investment but that’s what I needed, a real investment in myself instead of just saying I was, or thinking I was. Coaching with Dr. Ritter was refreshing and more than eye opening. Not only has he been there, done that, but he was able to access information I didn’t even know I had that led me to understand who I was, and where I wanted to go. In only three months of coaching I felt unstuck, and had the confidence and clarity to lead myself.
 
 

 

You don’t have to feel stuck. There’s a process and system that you can learn to find more meaning in life and at work.

You’ve been successful in your professional career, but you’ve proven that being successful doesn’t mean you actually feel successful, or are able to help others feel successful. Your behaviors, habits, and mindset - your internal system - isn’t going to lead you toward your new goals.

This is the future of personal and leadership development. Everyone can and deserves to feel fulfilled at work and in life.

LFY Consulting understands how today’s society and the associated pressures lack the ability to find and cultivate meaning. The big picture has little to do with your salary, job title, and it’s still a lot bigger then what most coaches preach as the holy grail, your values.

In order to create an impact in an organization, for yourself, others, and ultimately the world, you need to be able to consistently live a life of meaning, knowing and making choices that are aligned with who you are, and then be able to lead others in learning how to do the same for themselves.

A life of meaning is a life of fulfillment, and a life of fulfillment is a great place to live and work.

LFY Consulting spreads this modern message of personal and professional development through it’s unique and exclusive LIVE system©, and the Three C’s of Self Leadership©, that are at the heart of all of its coaching and consulting, but also through workshops, a series of events, it’s podcast, products, and courses.

Are you an entrepreneur that’s experienced some success but is getting in your own way?

Your inner critic is screaming at you every day. Doubt clouds your vision. Your to-do list piles up and you can’t seem to find the motivation to do the work you need to do. You don’t even know what exactly to do anymore, and your life is out of balance.

Well the tricky part is that you are your own worst enemy right now and so it’ll be really hard for you to solve your own issues without taking some drastic action - like giving up - which is not the option you probably want or that I want.

So I coach entrepreneurs to get unstuck, feel empowered, and be able to lead themselves and their business again through creating greater clarity, confidence, and control at work and in their life (The 3 C’s of Self-Leadership©). While also reigniting the meaning that they use to feel with their work through the LIVE system©. Schedule a time to chat with us.

Are you an intrapreneurial business professional that doesn’t feel fulfilled and you want to start your own business?

You’ve had enough at work. Either you can’t stand your boss, coworkers, or just aren’t finding meaning at your work anymore. But you aren’t sure what to do, you don’t truly feel competent yet to launch a business, and you don’t really know how to launch a business. The WHY, WHO, WHAT, and HOW are undefined and feel too far to even reach.

So I coach business professionals to uncover what they truly want to create and then take them through the initial stages of forming their business and preparing to leave their old career behind. The programs I offer focus on creating greater clarity, confidence, and control (The 3 C’s of Self-Leadership©), while also exploring, defining, and aligning their life to the meaning at the core of their work through the LIVE system©.

Are you an intrapreneurial business professional that doesn’t feel fulfilled in their work and wants to pivot into a new career?

You’ve had enough at work. Either you can’t stand your boss, coworkers, or just aren’t finding meaning at your work anymore. You have the semblance of an idea about what you want to do but you have little idea on how to make that a reality. You don’t truly feel competent yet to start applying to jobs because you don’t see how your experience fits. Let's be honest, you aren’t really confident that you’d get hired. So you stall. Put it off, and let time pass you by.

So I coach business professionals to uncover what they truly want to do for the next stage in their career, take them through the initial stages of presenting their strengths in a way that fits a new role, generate strategies to create connections in the career that we uncovered, while also preparing them to leave their old career behind. The programs I offer focus on creating greater clarity, confidence, and control (The 3 C’s of Self-Leadership©), while also exploring, defining, and aligning their life to the meaning at the core of their work through the LIVE system©.

COURSE

Too often people take the "easy" way out when they feel stuck at work. They leave. Initially it makes sense to think that to find more meaning at work you need to find a new job. Ultimately though, if you were to fast forward 2 years you're going to feel the same way. That's not to say that you can't find meaning in a new job, but it's implying that finding meaning is more of an inside job. If you’re wondering how to make the most out of any job you’re at, then this course is for you.
