After you find your passion, we plot your path from A to B to C to Landing.


We provide strategic connections to our extensive network.

Few executives have experience navigating a career transition. We provide a powerful methodology and the “white glove” support best suited for executives from the C-Suite leaders to Directors. Every leader gets the individual attention that a demanding executive career transition deserves.

A ticking clock on your outplacement or transition support only heightens the pressure at an already stressful time. At Navigate Forward, we deliver outcomes. We support you until you successfully land your new role or launch your next phase. We’re by your side at a flexible pace that suits your career goals.

Our powerhouse team of executive consultants are seasoned senior leaders who average more than 30 years of experience. Like you, they’ve achieved success in a wide range of industries and roles, including executive recruiters, C-Suite leaders from many functions including HR, entrepreneurs, and board directors.

Highly effective working relationships require trust, candor, collaboration and accountability. We carefully match you with a lead consultant who aligns with your style, focus and career goals. Your lead consultant will bring in other team members to complement your support.

Your next move shouldn’t be limited by past experience or job title. Our process begins with guided discovery that helps leaders see how your skills—and your passions—can translate going forward. We’re your springboard for the next executive role, a pivot to consulting or fractional work, a role on a corporate board of directors—or an entirely new adventure.

With our broad resources and deep bench of experts, we work with you to craft a market message and create the materials to position yourself competitively. There’s no need to seek additional assistance for personal branding, resume/LinkedIn optimization, networking/interview preparation or salary negotiation. We have experts in every aspect of executive career transition.

Over 80 percent of our clients find their next job through networking. We give you an advantage by teaching you how to target the right individuals and maximize every meeting. Across the country, you have access to our active alumni community.
