Hi, I'm Karl Staib. The creator of the Dig to Fly method and author of Bring Gratitude. I struggled for years with staying consistent with my goals and working toward them until I got clear of what I really wanted to accomplish. I would like to be your co-pilot on your next big change.

I struggled with depression, money issues, being fired from a great job, Cancer, relationships, career. etc. If you are currently struggling thru something right now, I probably struggled at one time to overcome it as well. My main issue was that I didn't prepare properly. I would launch into a project and just wing it as I would go. I got decent results, but my results could have been so much better if I had a better system in place.

Now I go through a checklist of questions before I start any major project. It's this mental map that keeps my anxiety and stress manageable through each stage of a project. It's about developing your own systems that help you improve your mindset, but also prepare yourself for anything that comes your way.

Do you feel like you could use a co-pilot?

Someone to help guide you through the stormy weather.

Your Co-pilot

Would you like someone who has been through the mindset trenches and knows how you can do work that you love?  Then we should set up a time to talk. You have to review your current foundation, eliminate what isn't working and help you tackle whatever challenges that occur with your transition. When you can be grateful for each challenge you have prepared yourself to succeed.

What mental shifts do you need to make to improve your career and life?

When you are ready to make a big change in your life it should always start with working on your mindset. I made the mistake of listening to the stories and limiting beliefs that played in my head as I tried to make the leap.

The best way to prepare for your next big change is to get your thoughts and emotions onboard, otherwise you won't succeed. It's starts with truly appreciating the challenge and all the possible nuances that will occur. That's why I have all my clients start with a system that helps them build a more positive and resilient mindset. When you practice certain mindset techniques you are rewiring your neural pathways, which builds the foundation you need to the next phase a success. You don't want to start the next phase of your life and go crawling back to the one that caused you so much stress and tension

You could use someone to help you see your blind spots. As your co-pilot I'm there to make sure all the instruments are reading correctly and that the captain (That's You!) of the aircraft isn't going off course. It's this mutual respect that they have for each other that saves lives. I help my clients create a plan that helps them soar above the turbulence.

I had one client who got a promotion at work and had no idea how to lead people. She was caring, kind and smart, but she didn't know how to get the best out of her people. I'm going to share a secret. It starts with appreciation. You have to appreciate who they are and what they bring to their job. Then you focus on helping them grow and strive, while praising them when they are doing a good job, it's a magical formula.

It starts with working on your mindset. You have to understand your blind spots and practice growing your emotional intelligence to get to where you want to be.

"I had sessions with other experts that felt unproductive because they merely revisited personal growth exercises I'd previously learned about in books. Karl focused instead on helping me identify the action steps around my short-term and long-term goals. As someone who thrives on organization and forward momentum, I appreciated working with someone who focuses on results." Lori Lori Deschene of Tiny Buddha

"The best thing about working with Karl is the ease in which the conversation flows. It's easy to bounce ideas off of him and get immediate feedback and he always keeps the conversation focused and on target. He plays a great devils advocate and forces you to question your actions/direction. Karl is compassionate, understanding and full of ideas he is willing to share.

How We'll Work Together

My focus is to help you focus on the important things in your career that truly make an impact. It all starts with your mindset.

Here is the Dig to Fly coaching process:

  1. Understand your story and the thread that ties it all together. After our first session you'll get your Spotlight Value and Dig to Fly Question to help you on your career journey.
  2. Outline your vision for the next 5 years.
  3. Learn how to dig deep to method that will stop overthink, release tension and keep you moving forward.
  4. Create a flight plan to reduce mental turbulence and get to your destination ahead of schedule.

Once we create our foundation then we'll have common ground. We'll use this time to build trust and layout out how you process information. We'll find out what are you main pain points are then the stories you tell yourself that encourage you and what stories hold you back.

We'll have one-on-one working sessions together depending on your training package. At the start of each session we'll set a goal then what ritual/action can we create to support this goal and a hypothesis of how this will improve your life. After 30 days we'll review your progress and decide to keep the same goal and add a new one or just make a new one for the next 30 days.I'm available via email/text (your preference) check-ins. This will help us calibrate your progress and make any small tweaks to optimize it.
