Why I started CTRL Alt Delete
I started CTRL Alt Delete to provide solutions for frustrated professionals who felt stuck in their careers and didn’t have a way to get themselves into betters situations. Situations that allowed them better life/work balance, professional growth opportunities, the ability to work toward financial independence and confidence to seek the opportunities they were interested in! I had walked in those shoes before and navigated that road not only for myself but for others.
What does CTRL Alt Delete mean?
CTRL Alt Delete is a personal mantra of mine. It stands for “Take CTRL of Your Future, Alt-er Your Mindset and Delete all doubt which have been core to the work I do with my clients!

Frequently Asked Questions
If there is a gap between where you are in your career now and where you want to be, then there is room for coaching. Ask yourself, “Why struggle on your own when you can get the structure, support, and tools of a skilled coach?
Professionals that are ready to add in strategic support and approach things in a new way so they can focus on getting back to being successful and realizing their career goals. Whether that be transitioning into a new field, better life/work balance/ financial increase or growth in their current field. Using a career coach doesn’t mean YOU are a problem, just someone who has some obstacles to work through.
CTRL Alt Delete is built on genuine connections, authenticity, years of professional experience/competency, as well as proven client results (AND a little humor, because aren’t we already stressed enough!). It’s not job placement, it’s not just editing your resume or canned questions to ask in an interview. It’s a partnership to help you get clear on the direction you desire to go in and a detailed plan to back that up.
This depends on the session you select. Coaching offerings are available via:
A 30-Minute Pick My Brain Session
A 1 Hour Mini Session specifically centered around your resume and LinkedIn
The Career Toolkit Session – 3-Hour Session
The Master Class Intensive Session – 6-Hour Session
Do you feel stuck, frustrated, unhappy, underpaid, stressed, that you are not being challenged, bored or otherwise STAGNANT in your career?
Are you ready to get strategic about next steps and get into action where you may have been stuck or struggling?
Do you find value in having a dedicated resource to help you strategize and create a plan of action based on what is important to you?
Have you made up your mind that STAYING stagnant and stressed is not worth your health and the other impacts to your life?
If you’ve answered “yes” to 3 or more of these questions, you are a very good candidate for coaching…. consider this your personal invitation. Without direction and action, the career we want exists only in our imaginations. Sometimes, it’s working one-on-one with a professional that can make all the difference.
Synergy between career coach and client creates momentum and enthusiasm. Clarity is found. Better goals are set — ones that naturally motivate YOU! Coaching provides a structure of support. Left to our own devices, most people start out with the best intentions and then hit a snag and either get derailed completely or delayed for a long time. Our confidence takes a hit. Working with us as your coach can help you bust through snags and inevitable road blocks. Additionally there is objectivity. Your coach is an objective, positive supporter and PARTNER. Not everyone has someone to provide objectivity coupled with years of expertise in coaching. If you’ve been doing it solo and not successful, try seeing how much more you can accomplish with your own career coach!
A lot of talking, a lot of questions, a lot of listening, a lot of note-taking, often pep talks, strategizing, breakthroughs, planning, support, and encouragement. We want to see you WIN on your own terms based on what success looks like TO YOU.
To get the best from Career Coaching, you need to have a positive attitude towards the achievement of your goal. You need to be totally open, trusting and honest within the coaching relationship. You need to have the time and commitment to complete the actions after your session. These actions are what will move you closer to your overall goal. Ultimately your level of commitment will directly influence the extent to which your career goals will be realized. To help you with all of this, your coach provides boundless motivation, support and encouragement within a confidential and non-judgemental environment.
On the website you can submit general questions to the “Ask Tricia” box and it will be answered. This is not a substitute for coaching but can be additional support as you execute. There are also several resources available on the Resources Page as well as information shared via the Career Growth and Development Newsletter.
