our story.

We started Next Move as a response to our experience of managing times of feeling overwhelmed and unsure about what we wanted to do next.  We realized - as we supported each other and others - that there was a simple but powerful process that helps people move from a ‘state of unknowing and feeling stuck’ to a ‘place of clarity and action'.  

 

Our seminars, publications, coaching practices, and community have been developed to communicate this process and support people to use it effectively.

 

Next Move has been successfully used by individuals, with groups, in university settings, and by people of all ages.  Irrespective of what you are navigating, our method helps people feel supported, empowered, and able to move forward on the things that matter most.

 

As individuals who have experienced, witnessed, and been educated about bias and privilege - we strive to make the Next Move Method as broadly accessible as possible.

our values.

People Matter.

We care. Attentiveness, empathy, and compassion guide our actions.

Do it and do it well.

Whatever the task, we show up, are present, and do the best job we’re capable of.

Bias and Privilege are real.

The world isn’t fair. We work hard to remember this and act from our awareness to learn, grow, and make things more equitable.

Good work feels like play.

We make time for self-reflection so that we can connect and align what we do with what makes us feel alive.

the 5C next move
method.

Our process is based on the development of five key capacities, known as the 5Cs:

 

CONNECT
Deepen ability to connect with self and others to build a strong network of personal and professional support

 

CLARIFY
Increase self-awareness of personal values, interests, strengths, and constraints and identify what is needed to achieve your goals

 

CREATE
Generate pathways & become comfortable with experimentation as you move towards personal, career and life objectives

 

COMMUNICATE
Expand verbal and nonverbal capacities to fully engage in open and honest communication with others

 

CONTEMPLATE
Bring curiosity & compassion to the self-reflection process to gain a deeper understanding of your actions and behavior 

 

The 5Cs serve as the foundation across all of our offerings:  our seminar; our coaching; our partnerships; and our book (coming soon)!    

 

Via self-exploration, mini-lessons, exercises, games, curated content, and the support and accountability of a cohort, participants learn when and how to use the 5Cs to get clear, feel good and move forward in their lives.
