Featured Testimonial:
YouMap® Brings Clarity

"My client was convinced that he needed to make a career change. He was miserable at a job he had been in for seven years but didn't know what else to do. After looking at his YouMap® and going through coaching, it was evident that it wasn't his job that was his issue; it was his boss violating his values. He was a great fit for the role. Now he is looking for a new job in the same industry in a similar role and ensuring he has the proper support from a boss."

- Shelley Piedmont, Certified YouMap® Coach


“I, along with my partners, decided to each get certified in different tools so our firm could offer a suite of services. I started researching and was looking at five certifications a week. Once I got to YouMap® I stopped looking. I showed it to my partners and they said, ‘Well, we want to get certified in this, too. It has everything we're trying to do in one tool.'"

What is YouMap®?

YouMap® is a holistic assessment profile and framework that is a foundation of self-awareness for endless personal and professional uses. The framework is based on four key pillars of you:

“I wanted to get something tangible in clients' hands. Something that affirms who they are, even if they couldn’t see it at first. Many of my clients feel stuck and languishing, and this tool shows them what might be wrong AND a path forward.

Having a MAP of themselves has built their confidence and changed their belief about what they have to offer the world, AND created hopeful conversation toward a path forward.

I’m getting answers for clients that may have taken many sessions and lots of trial and error.”

Nicholle C.

Health & Emotional Wellness Coach


“The key difference I've found between YouMap® and any other model is actionable guidance; it illuminates the path forward in a single tool to uncover aptitude, motivation, and strengths. YouMap takes self-knowledge to the next level by focusing on how to apply that knowledge to benefit yourself, your team, your customers, and your organization.”



Senior Training Manager, Genentech

Why YouMap®?

The intuitive YouMap® profile radically reduces the time it takes coaches, consultants, and leaders to get to know clients or employees, offering deep insight to help people reach their career or personal life goals.

The assessment includes a comprehensive workbook loaded with practical exercises. Entrepreneur, Job Seeker & Career Changer, Life, Corporate, Military Veteran and Student workbooks are available.


YouMap® turns insight into action, guiding users to the "So what?" and "Now what?" - which people want and expect, yet most other assessments do not deliver.

“In my last job I had a lot of mixed feelings. There were things I really liked about the job, but it wasn't the work I wanted to be doing. After using the YouMap® process to discover my strengths it helped me focus on the type of job I was looking for. After I was at my new job about a year-and-a-half I got totally surprised by a promotion, which was really nice, and just an affirmation that, 'Yeah, you're on the right track, you're doing a good job. We appreciate you.’”
