Drew Carey spent his professional career in health care marketing for Indiana’s largest healthcare providers. He led the branding teams for diverse hospital service lines including orthopedics, neuroscience, bariatrics and geriatrics, among others. He directed the re-branding effort when two of the region’s largest neurosurgery physician practices merged in 2010. He has extensive experience in marketing, branding, corporate communication and public relations.
He received his undergraduate training in journalism and has always considered himself to be a communicator above all else. Heeding a lifelong calling to enter into a helping profession, he completed a life and business coaching training program at Erickson College in 2012 and opened his own coaching business, Solution-Focused Coaching Services, in 2013. He took his own “leap of faith” and left his job in March of 2013 to devote himself full-time to coaching. He opened his business, Solution-Focused Coaching Services and provides individual and corporate coaching, group facilitation, career assessments and interpretations, and, of course, a wide variety of workshops to businesses and the community at large. Drew considers coaching to be a natural extension of his identity as a communicator.
Today, his clients are diverse, from college students trying to find their way in the world to retirees seeking to establish their “personal legend.” However, the vast majority of his clients see him for career coaching, mostly men and women in their 40s and 50s who have arrived at a point in their lives where work has become less than fulfilling – and usually frustrating, stressful and unsustainable. They seek to find their passion or rediscover it.
He completed the certification requirements and examination from the Center for Credentialing and Education to become a board-certified coach. He is also an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF).
In addition to marketing and communications, Drew worked several years as a corporate trainer. He became a master certified trainer and a certified instructional designer through Langevin Learning Services. Drew incorporates adult learning principles into all his workshops to ensure an engaging, stimulating experience for attendees. Drew’s natural humor creates a relaxed environment conducive to learning and an overall enjoyable experience.
“The idea for these workshops came from my life and career coaching clients. Not only had I experienced the burnout and distress of working in a corporate business environment, but now I had others telling me about their experiences which mirrored my own. I realized I could create informative but also inspirational events that combined my experience in corporate America with my coaching skills. My intention for these workshops is to help people rediscover their passion for work, whether within their current job or in a new job or career path. American workers deserve to be lifted up to realize their true potential.”
