We see you!

You’re smart, well-educated, and hard-working, but you’re still not sure you’re on the right career path…

You feel under-challenged, under-appreciated, or under-compensated at work, but you’re struggling to differentiate yourself and advance in your industry or function…

You’ve ticked all the right boxes, but somewhere deep down, you know you’re meant for something more. You want to have a bigger impact and fulfill your own unique potential…

On paper, you’re a success, but some days you still grapple with imposter feelings, wondering why you’re still having to prove yourself and fighting feelings of not being good enough…  

And you secretly feel like you should have all this figured out by now…

If this is you, you’re not alone!

“I want to do several things in my life, but making a choice is very stressful. Making change in a broader organization is hard.  As women we are also up against a biological clock.  I have great skills but need help picking a path.”

Sarah, 27, Co-founder of a fertility start-up.

“I want to know that the next thing I’m doing matters. I’m building experience at work but not sure what that’s leading to.  I went to a liberal arts college and studied art. People claim to value a liberal arts education, but they don’t actually pay us well.  I don’t feel like I’m the right candidate for many jobs.  I’ve also struggled to close the deal.”

Sabeen, 25, Freelance marketing consultant. 

“What am I missing that’s going to help me rise to Director? You need to be humble but not invisible.  Transitions are hard.  I need guidance.”

Miguel, 30, Project Manager at big tech.

“I have a great career on paper, but waning motivation and unsure of my overall career trajectory. I’m ready to break the mold, but don’t know how to do it.”

Jenna, 38, Economist at an international development organization.

“I’ve always wanted to be part of something bigger than myself, which is why I served in the Navy. Now that I’m transitioning to a civilian career, I’m finding resources all over the place and targeted to junior officers rather than to me.  I’m struggling to find my mission again.”

William, MBA Student at top-3 program.

“I’ve transitioned from being a healthcare provider to a full-time MBA student. Since I don’t have a business background, I suffer from confidence and leadership issues and struggle to network with ease.  I want to succeed in my internship and learn how to think and communicate properly under pressure.”

Brigitte, 35, MBA student at top-10 program.

“I’ve been in the same team, doing the same thing, for two years, without much challenge lately. I want to be paid as a manager if I’m doing manager-level work.  I have lofty dreams but no one to help me get there.”

Laura, 25, Product manager in financial services.

It’s not you

If you could have done it on your own by now, you would have.  But like these other intelligent and accomplished people, you’re struggling to make sense of all your opportunities, to define your purpose at work, and to make impact along the dimensions you actually care about.

Here’s why:

No one teaches this stuff.

You’re smart. If someone had taught you this stuff, you would have learned it by now.

Schools – even top MBA programs – teach you a combination of…

  1. interesting concepts that don’t apply to the real world of work and
  2. hard skills that help you perform specific tasks for specific jobs.

And working a job simply teaches you how to be better at that specific job

No one ever teaches you how to navigate a dynamic career lasting six+ decades, where the technologies, culture, and networks underpinning your success are upended every few years, and where dramatic pivots across industry, role and function are not just commonplace but necessary.

This isn’t our parents’ world anymore.
It’s ours. It’s time to steer your own ship,
toward your North Star.

This isn’t our parents’ world anymore.

It’s ours.

It’s time to steer your own ship, toward your North Star.

To find your purpose and translate it into a compelling career, you need to develop a career plan grounded in your deepest values, and learn the mindsets, habits, and skills to achieve it.  You need deep self-awareness and elite communication skills.  You need a community of peers cheering you on.

This is what it means to be a Fearless Leader. It’s what we’re teaching in this program.

At the end of this program, you will have:

  • Clarity – on your values and the specific impact you want to have in the world

  • Confidence – to boldly explore the array of roles, industries, and functions available to achieve your ambitions and live up to your own potential

  • Capability – to develop the skills and build the network to power your long-term career success

  • Commitment – to fearlessly pursue your unique path with continuous self-improvement and growth

Our Program is a twelve-week long, cohort-based learning adventure.

We’ve designed a structured, collaborative process that inspires you and keeps you accountable on your path to becoming a Fearless Leader.

Here’s what you’re going to get:

  • Weekly Tutorials – Industry-leading videos, workbooks and exercises developed by Angela, and tried and tested by hundreds of ambitious leaders

  • Weekly Assignments – Specific tasks to apply and master the concepts in real time in your actual career

  • Weekly live office hours hosted by Angela and Aziz

  • A lifelong vibrant community of values-driven, motivated individuals pursuing careers that matter. Belong to, support, and be supported by others like you on your road to success

  • Bonus classes included with your registration on job searching, networking, interviewing, and negotiating offers, raises and promotions

The course is meant to fit into your already busy life, requiring only 1-3 hours per week of work to learn, apply those learnings, and build the durable habits of fearless leaders.

Here’s what some of our fans have to say about this course.

“If Angela offers any book, program, video, advice, etc. – you jump at the opportunity!  Angela has a gift of creating content and materials that help bring out your best self to feel fully confident and prepared for your career journey.”

Christina, 2019

“A practically thorough material for success finders. Going through the course is like immersing in a 3D adventure. You open one door, experience ups and downs, add lessons learnt, find yourself matured and head to another new door.”

Tran, 2019

“Get Your Own Guardian Angel(a)! Angela has been an incredibly insightful and empowering mentor and career coach. Currently, in my first year at HBS, it dramatically changed (for the better!) the way I approached networking and searching for opportunities in my target industry. I’ve leveraged Angela’s techniques to develop more meaningful professional relationships and gain access to new resources. The recommendations and exercises in it were amazingly useful in helping me craft compelling, succinct narratives that I could rely on in actual interviews. It was a huge confidence boost to feel prepared for questions AND be reminded of the wealth in my experiences.”

James, 2019

“This class was awesome! It was easy to fit into my schedule- different modules and videos that you can do on your own time. Angela’s videos are informative, honest, and fun- filled with anecdotes from her experience. Would highly recommend!”

Chelsea, 2019

“For Career Explorers and Hunters, Alike.  Angela’s course turned out to be instructive, inspirational and fairly comprehensive. It was far cheaper than a one-to-one careers advisor session and it still covered all the bases.

In fact, it did a better job than a top MBA school’s careers advisor did and I later introduced the course to my other MBA friends.  Those who signed on loved the course as much as I did, because it was well structured, covering the basic areas like CV, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, and also going into areas like what you value and what you want.  Every topic starts with a video and there are downloadable PDF files that provide quick guidance or document templates.

Unlike many other career advisors, Angela urged her students to discover what we really value, what drives us, what we have been successful in and what we are good at. Her encouragement for students to be more introspective helps career explorers to really think about our next step, rather than jumping on the bandwagon and grabbing the first job that presents itself.

Because of Angela’s guidance, I had the confidence to turn down prestigious opportunities, holding out for a job that would be more sustainable in the long-run, giving me purpose and more relevant skills for the future. Angela’s cheerful guidance, positivity and genuine concern for her students (she took things one step further and introduced me to contacts who could share job or company insights with me) made me glad to have chosen Career Protocol to supplement my MBA school’s careers services.

It is one of the best career decisions that I have ever made. Thank you, Angela!” 

Liqian, 2018

“If you need a support network and guidance on how to figure out what you want out of your career, build strong relationships, and position yourself for career success, this is absolutely the program for you!”

ElleKay, 2019

“The Angela Guido Show: 100% Certified Fresh Tomatoes Angela truly is a ROCKSTAR.”

Collin, 2018

Social Learning

Our brains did not evolve to learn alone in silos. Life is dynamic, happening right now, and always connected to other people. That’s why we learn best when we observe, practice, reflect, and apply our lessons in a psychologically safe space, within a collaborative community.  

The Fearless Leaders Program includes intentional sociality at three levels to maximize your learning experience:

  • Small groups – Work through the curriculum in your Triad, a carefully curated small group of three.  Learn by sharing with, responding to, and coaching others in your Triad. 
  • Weekly live office hours – Bring your questions and concerns, and receive personalized feedback and direction from Angela and Aziz on live calls
  • Vibrant, online community across all cohorts of fearless leaders – As a Fearless Leader, you gain membership in a tribe of fellow kind, brilliant, and ambitious humans seeking to make a difference in the world along dimensions that matter – connect and communicate online, network, collaborate, share resources, and grow together.

+ Free Bonus Classes included with this Course!

Free Bonus Class 1:
Tell an Inspiring Story

($490 value)

Your work does not speak for itself. Only you can. And sharing facts about yourself or (worse) your opinion, just doesn’t cut it. You need a good story! 

Whether you’re interviewing for a new job or promotion, presenting to a client, or just having lunch with a colleague or boss, being able to tell authentic, inspiring stories about your work is a foundational business (and human) skill.

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Select events from your life that actually make epic stories!  An epic story (a) reflects your values and abilities, (b) clearly positions you as the story’s hero, (c) is defined by how you overcame conflict to achieve something you actually care about, and above all, (d) genuinely inspires you to tell that story in the first place!
  • Be wholly present with your audience, overcoming any nervousness by letting your genuine excitement for your story carry you forward.

  • Use compelling narrative structures – like The Hero’s Journey – to get your audience emotionally invested in you and your journey.

Free Bonus Class 2
Make Your Network Work For You

($190 value)

Creating and nourishing professional friendships is central to long-term career success.  From inspiring confidence in a first conversation, to sharing your passions, to becoming a superconnector, we teach you how to make your network work for you.

In this class, you learn to:

  • Master networking by framing your experiences and ambitions in a way that inspires.

  • Develop a plan to grow your network and keep in touch with the professional friends you already have.
  • Establish authority and expertise beyond your personal network.

  • Amplify the power of your network and become the hub everyone relies on.

Free Bonus Class 3
YOMO: You Only MBA Once

($1,900 value)

YOMO: You Only MBA Once: the premier pre-MBA prep program for rising MBAs that helps you maximize the value of your MBA career pivot

Includes all lessons above, plus

  • A crash course in MBA jobs so you know what the options are and which ones are the best fit for you

  • A framework to prioritize corporate networking and on-campus opportunities so you can take advantage of all the amazing options without getting overwhelmed
  • Interviews with successful MBAs to help inspire your own journey and keep you focused on what matters

  • Two special MBA-only coaching sessions with Angela and Aziz

Free Bonus Class 4
Get a response to email

($90 value)

Get a response to email.  Turn that cold email into the first step in a long and beautiful professional friendship.  You first need to stand out in your recipient’s inbox – by communicating with concision, actionability, and personality.  We teach you how to make it easy for busy and important people to help you – to say yes to you, and to invest in you.

Our Guarantee

We’re confident that this course will give you the vision, clarity, and tools to emerge as a fearless leader.  If you’re not loving the course and seeing yourself transform, we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee.

September 21st

Twelve weeks of structured tutorials, exercises, and office hours with Angela and Aziz.

Unfortunately not.  Paying up-front commits everyone to engaging fully and purposefully with the classes and the cohort community.  We have a 30-day money back guarantee, so there’s no risk to you if you don’t love it.

The course is meant to fit into your already busy life, requiring only 1-3 hours per week of work to learn, apply those learnings, and build the durable habits of fearless leaders.

Life happens.  If you’re a week or two behind, don’t sweat it.  Try to make it up.  If it’s longer, talk to us and we’ll make sure you’re getting the most value you can.

Because fearless leaders achieve their potential and change the world.  Fear is the greatest barrier to self-love and therefore to success and joy.  When we stop being afraid, we start to embrace who we are and what we want.  Only then do we open ourselves to learning the tools, habits, and mindsets necessary to make it all happen.  Fearless Leadership is a skillset, and you can learn it!
