We've found that deep satisfaction with life and career begins by tapping your inner compass, which is rediscovered by exploring childhood stories and reclaiming the parts of you that have been lost along the way. This compass sets the direction for a more fulfilling career or business.

✧Who We Work With-

Mid-career professionals, executive leaders, and business owners who are successful in the conventional sense, but feel stuck regarding their career or business' next steps, and desire more meaning and fulfillment in their work.

✧What We Do- 

Our 3-month signature process helps you identify the behavioral patterns that allow you to thrive, breakthrough the patterns that are holding you back, and identify opportunities that would be a better fit based on your self-discovery.

✧Why We Do It-

Traditional career counseling and assessments don't work for most people because they highlight generalities and don't go deep enough. Our approach integrates psychology and career development to help you understand what truly motivates you in your career, what you do well (and should get paid for), and WHY you do it based on your life story.

✧Our Results-

97% of our clients report that they have a better understanding of who they are, their Driving Talents and transferable skills, and a clearer picture of what they are seeking from their career or business. 90% of clients report that they have found a more fulfilling role or made a fulfilling business change within a year of working with us.

Why I developed The Inner Compass Process and why you can trust it

Danielle Roessle, Inner Compass Coach, expert career coaching, job interview coaching, job search coaching, and leadership development, serving Denver, CO, Washington, DC, and the United States. Top rated and reviewed.

Dear Career Changers and Entrepreneurs,

I’m Danielle Roessle, LCSW, Executive Career and Business Alignment Coach, and founder of Inner Compass Coach.

As a kid who was bullied, and a person who found myself stuck in my career back in 2012, it took me a deep investigation to understand that my childhood and career were intrinsically linked.

I struggled because I was a career development professional when I was unhappy in my career, but was frustrated that assessments could not provide the answer to career satisfaction.

While assessments have their place (we use several in our practice) and can generalize one’s strengths and career options, they are limited because they told me what I already knew, ignored my deepest drivers, I couldn't connect the career suggestions to who I was and what I needed.

I began to look for answers by taking career development workshops, but even they didn't work until I had a greater understanding of inner childhood psychology. What I have learned is that the best way to find a career or business that's a better fit is to go back to the source of where your motivations developed- childhood.

Childhood is the doorway to show you what makes you feel alive, what holds you back, and what gives you a sense of contribution and fulfillment. Assessments cannot do this. 

When you have a career or business framework of that draws on your previous experiences and  what you're looking for, it's easier to identify opportunities that are a better fit.

While our approach is not for everyone, if you want a deep, solutions-oriented process to clarify your direction, check out our offerings below to see if our approach would be a good fit.
