Learning from the Giraffes: A Special Announcement for 2020

Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed the holiday season and that you were able to sneak a little time for yourself to take a personal inventory in preparation for the upcoming year.

Along that line…I almost never use this blog space for announcements, but 2020 is shaping up to be a big one for Giraffes Consulting, for me personally, and hopefully for my clients. I’ve kept this mostly under wraps until now, but I’m close enough in the process that it’s time to let you know: My first book is nearing completion and should be ready for release in the first quarter of this year!

The book’s working title is What I Learned from the Giraffes, and it serves as part-memoir/part-inspiration. In the book, I share a bit of my own personal and professional journey, as well as some of the universal principles I’ve learned along the way that now form the foundation of Giraffes Consulting—most importantly, the principles of navigating change.

It’s been a long time coming, but it feels like the timing is perfect for this book. With all the upheaval and uncertainty so many of us are facing in our world today, we need to be reminded now more than ever that change is a gift, and when we approach change from a stance of confidence, we can take control of our future in ways we never thought possible. This is certainly the approach I take with my career coaching clients, but these principles extend far beyond finding a new job or career. If you’re facing any kind of life change, whether it’s a change in job, relationships, health or something else, I believe this book will help provide some much-needed context—and hopefully, a bit of encouragement and inspiration, as well.

In the weeks to come, I’ll be sharing a few excerpts from the book here on the blog, and we’ll be planning a much-needed facelift for this website coinciding with the book’s release. Watch for more announcements to come!

In the meantime, if you need help navigating a career change right now, you don’t have to wait for the book to come out—I’m here to help if you need it. Shoot me an at terrylynn@giraffesconsulting.com, or call me at 646-320-1126, and we’ll schedule a free 30-minute consultation.
