“I’m Great at My Job, but No One Seems to Notice… Now What?!”

Become a Sought-After Expert in Your Company and Unlock More Opportunities for Projects, Promotions, and Growth

Are you trying to be seen, heard and appreciated but keep getting overlooked, talked over, and passed up for opportunities? Many women in the science, tech, and engineering fields are great at their jobs, but still feel overlooked and undervalued—and sometimes wonder why they’re switching on their laptops in the morning.

Maybe you’re not even sure anymore of who you are and what you want out of your career. (Or if you do know, you’re unsure how to speak about it with others.)

All of this can take a toll on your confidence, so you sit in meetings quietly, not sharing your thoughts or ideas with others for fear of sounding stupid.

You only interact with people you naturally come in contact with through your work, because networking and small talk don’t come easy to you. And really, you don’t want to feel like you’re bragging or being pushy, right? But you’ve been told that 

you need more visibility to get the recognition and the opportunities you deserve. You want others to know you’re the go-to expert in your area, but how to actually make that happen… 

Here’s How We Jump-Start This Journey

I’ve developed Springboard, a 3-month private coaching and mentoring program specifically for women in STEM who want help increasing their visibility in their company, clearly positioning themselves as experts, and believing in their own ability and potential. (And who want to do all of that in a way that is aligned with their values.)

You’ll learn to build your reputation and position yourself for recognition, and in the process…

  • You’ll feel much more secure and convinced of your own strengths, uniqueness, and the value you bring.
  • Gaining credibility and a network of supporters will make your whole work easier through better access to resources and connections to decision-makers.
  • You’ll also stop ruminating, doubting and second-guessing yourself. The whole work experience becomes so much more fulfilling. And when you enjoy your work more, you feel more motivated, you’re engaged, and feel like you belong to the team.
  • You’ll confidently show up in meetings, make those impactful contributions, and even take a more leading role in your work.
  • You’ll be known and respected by peers and managers across the organisation.
  • And those new opportunities? They mean growth—and that you get to do more work you really want to do and you enjoy.

In the end, you’ll know that you are on a path of growth and development and endless possibilities.

What’s Included With the Springboard Coaching and Mentoring Program & How Does It Work?

In this private coaching and mentoring program we’ll have regular virtual calls on Zoom:

  • Kick-off: A two-hour call to get to know each other, fully understand your current situation and your goals, and craft your unique strategy to achieve them. We’ll also start diving into solution-finding and develop an action plan for the coming weeks.
  • Deep-dives: About three weeks after our kick-off we’ll have the first deep-dive session and another week later the second one. These hour-long sessions will help you stay on track towards your goal and move past any roadblock you may encounter.
  • Debrief: Three weeks after the second deep-dive session we’ll have our final debrief where we look back at your growth over the past months and make a plan how you continue with that momentum after the programme ended.

These calls are a mix of exploration and solution finding, and we can discuss any hot topics or concerns you may have at the time.

All sessions are recorded so you can rewatch them in case you want to deepen the learning.

I know you’re busy, so the ‘homework’ in between calls is very limited. My goal is to help you find your clear next steps and learn new skills during our calls, so you can put them into action right away. I’ll check in with you once a week though to see how it’s going and make sure you have all the support you need.

About Me & How I Work

Hi, I’m Dr. Nicole Tschierske. I’m passionate about helping overlooked women in STEM become influential, so they can confidently unlock new opportunities for themselves, get their employers saying “we need you on this job!”. That way my clients strategically turn their career frustrations into a renewed love for their work.

I know these strategies work and the skills we build through this work are effective because I’ve done it for myself: Building an expert reputation inside a company. And I’ve helped other women to achieve that too.

It’s important for me that my clients find their own unique way of reaching their goals. That’s why in this program there’s a lot of space to talk through your concerns in a safe environment. It’s designed to give you custom tools and strategies that fit your needs, your work culture, your personality and strengths—plus the guidance and accountability to implement what you learn.

About You & Your Career

You’ve got some experience in your job—at least 1 or 2 years of experience in the workforce and 2-3 months into your current role.

You have a few achievements to show. You might not have made major career jumps… but you feel like you can rely on the value you deliver for the organisation—or your ability to use your strengths and skills to rise to new challenges.

You have some improvement ideas for your work life. You didn’t come this far to only come this far. Whether it’s finding a new position in your company, being selected on a project, or reaching a new level of excellence and confidence in your current role—this training will help you.

Need a quick push to move your career forward? Work with Nicole! I'm now able to solve problems with confidence. This is the real deal!
This programme has put me into a better professional position and I've improved my leadership and personal skills quite a lot. The applicability and the results are real!

I had 3 separate pieces of feedback from managers saying how impressed they were…
Deciding what to focus on in each session made the programme really specific to my needs and situation. I feel much more confident to express my views to senior management… and also really excited for the future challenges that will come my way.

Ready for Springboard?

The investment for the Springboard Program is 1,200 EUR. Payment plans are available.

This includes 4 live coaching sessions over 12 weeks:

  • Kick-off
  • Deep-Dive 1
  • Deep-Dive 2
  • Debrief
  • and weekly check-ins.

Let’s get to know each other to see if we’re a good fit! If we think this program is the springboard you need to reach your next level, we’ll set up the date for your Kick-Off Session and handle payments.

You might be wondering…

I’ve read books, watched TED Talks, and worked with a mentor—none of this got me real results. Will this really work for me?

As with anything in life, there’s no guarantee for a certain outcome like “get promoted in three months”. It would be grossly unethical to promise that. What I can promise is that this program doesn’t give you generalised advice and concepts that are hard to translate to your situation. That’s why we’re live on the calls together, to talk through the complexities of your individual situation.

I don’t feel ready and don’t have the time or mental capacity at the moment.

It’s true, sometimes we just have too much going on to add yet another thing. So how can you decide? I recommend checking in with yourself about the trade-offs.

If you decide not to join the program, what will happen? 

You might continue on your current path, returning to work each day increasingly frustrated. I’ve heard from women that they went as far as finding a new employer—only to discover that they faced similar challenges there. 

What if you decide to join the program? Of course, you’d have to take some time for the calls, think your strategy through, and take action that’s outside your current comfort zone. 

I always say “Which problem do you want to have?” because almost every decision we take in life comes with consequences. The question is just which are we willing to live with.

Do you offer a payment plan?

Yes. You can choose to either pay in full or over three months. 

And yes, you and your career are worth that investment. I once had a client who was so hesitant on spending money on coaching for herself as she thought it was an ‘over-indulgent luxury’. But then her partner went off to buy a new game console which triggered a completely new perspective for her: Of course, her capabilities and with that her future are worth investing in!

Now I feel much more confident about the things I’m good at and what I want to achieve.
I wasn’t sure if coaching was for me. But Nicole is a scientist, too, and totally down to earth, that’s what I was looking for. She doesn’t preach but teaches tools which helped me help myself. Now I know a lot more about myself, why I react to certain situations, and what I can do to change that. It feels liberating.

Nicole helped me change my mindset quickly. She always has the answer. Always has the tools. I'm so much happier now!
I realised that I don’t need a straight career to be satisfied – I just need to look out and ask proactively for the projects I am interested in. If I find myself struggling again, Nicole is going to be my first point of contact.
