Dr. Guy Langvardt is a TTI Success Insights® DISC Certified, TTI-Motivators® Certified, and CareerCOACH™ Certified job coach expert. Guy is a seasoned scholar/practitioner, a global educator, business consultant, and start-up advisor who brings his extensive hiring, leadership, and entertainment/media and high-tech industry knowledge to his career coaching practice. With more than 50 national and international awards for excellence, Guy has demonstrated his passion and track record for leading others to greater success. He joins the CareerCOACH™ team from his office in Culver City, California, serving clients throughout the Greater Los Angeles area.
Guy earned a Ph.D. in Organization and Development and an MBA in International Management; he has achieved excellence working for Compaq, ICM Corporation, NCR Corporation and Sun Microsystems. Guy has the educational background, aptitude, and professional experience to appreciate the scientific methodology used in the CareerCOACH System™ to achieve highly sought-after results in career development.
Guy immediately embraced CareerCOACH™ founder Bob Britz’s approach that aligns job-seekers with careers that truly excite them. “It’s all about the results. This systems-based approach is the most robust career coaching process available: it simply works. Bob has spent years perfecting the model. There is considerable evidence that the CareerCOACH System™ helps clients reach their desired goals.”
Unlike the typical conversational style of job coaching, Guy applies CareerCOACH tools to assess his clients’ motivations, passions, talents, and vision for their lives. Informed by these assessments, Guy develops a specific plan tailored to his clients’ needs that leads them on the path to finding a fulfilling and rewarding career.
What sets Guy’s coaching style apart from others is his unwavering focus on his clients. “I do a lot more listening than talking when working with clients. Once I understand their needs, their goals, and their vision for the future, I can apply the right tools to get them there.”
According to Guy, “There are few rewards that are greater than helping others reach greater success. My years of experience as a manager, my volunteer work as a SCORE (volunteer arm of the SBA) mentor, and my teaching experience share a common theme. I love counseling, coaching, and mentoring others.”
As an educator, Guy recognizes the value of new graduates in the workplace, as well as the advantages that seasoned professionals offer employers. Both remain as important and valuable to employers as ever. However, Guy asserts that all of us need to understand the imperative to update our skills to remain competitive in the digital world. “I help guide clients to make the right choices for future success.”
Guy recognizes that there is no single path leading to the ideal career. He believes that “the right career is out there for each and every one of us.” Guy and his fellow CareerCOACHes™ are here to help our clients know where to look, to create the tools to connect, and confidently step into a more fulfilling future.
