Craft your career with purpose, passion and progression.
Developed in collaboration with career and leadership coaches, the Aspire Career Designer is a self-coaching journal and a career planner to help you move beyond the day-to-day of your job title and create a road map for your bigger picture career success.
This journal is a valuable coaching tool to reflect, review, plan, and progress your working career to reach your fullest potential. It will give you clarity on your purpose and your natural strengths with a structured way to record your career experiences, achievements, and learnings as you go.

It will be your companion during annual reviews, when navigating career negotiations, and preparing for job interviews.

Why we created the Aspire Career Designer
Leaders in Heels CEO and founder, Kasia Gospos, has worked with many women who have paved their own pathway (having climbed the corporate ladder herself AND created an award-winning business).
However, since the inception of Leaders in Heels, so many incredibly talented and hard-working women have reached out with confusion around career progression, direction and what makes a viable employment opportunity. Seeing the difference that coaching tools made in these situations made the Aspire Career Designer a must-have in our planner collection.
