About Seth Kaufman, J.D., Psy.D., Certified Career Coach

Truly fulfilling work is more about who your work allows you to be, than what your job title says you do.

As a career and leadership coach, my mission is to help you find your unique identity as it translates into your work, serve as a catalyst for professional growth, and foster your self-empowerment to successfully overcome new challenges.

Over the course of more than 25 years of professional experience, I’ve seen over and over that when you make a deep commitment to yourself and truly go for what you want, you can accomplish amazing things.

I understand firsthand the challenges that come with career change and professional growth.

In my own professional life, I’ve been an attorney, a psychologist, and a career and leadership coach. I’ve lived it myself, so I know what you’re struggling with from personal experience.

Seth is, quite simply, the best – and I've worked with a few coaches in the past. Beyond his expertise, integrity and knowledge, there's that “certain something” about how he works with you that so easily helps you gain clarity, perspective and a crystal clear direction that is right for you. The best investment I've ever made in my career and myself. I recommend Seth without reservation.

Since 2003, I’ve dedicated myself to helping clients attain new levels of career fulfillment and leadership expertise. Grounded in the wisdom I’ve gained over the years, I’ve successfully guided clients from a variety of backgrounds to be who they most want to be in work and life. Along the way, I’ve had the privilege of working with many courageous and determined clients.

What does this mean for you? As one client said, “Seth has the career athleticism to appreciate what it means to make changes and understand the courage it takes. He has the professional credibility to help you with this because he’s lived through multiple aspects of career crossroads.”

As your Career Coach, I believe that finding meaning
and fulfillment in your work is non-negotiable.

My approach focuses on more than simply identifying your skill set. It’s about determining who you most want to be in your work and life.

As your Leadership Coach, I support your personal and professional growth. I’ll help you rise to the challenge of being your best self as a leader, and foster the self-empowerment required to step fully into your leadership role.

I will guide, challenge, and support you to create your unique definition of professional success.

My coaching process is focused, creative, and pragmatic, with much outside-the-box thinking. I’m holistic in my approach, as I believe that professional and personal fulfillment are closely intertwined.

My highest satisfaction is to free clients like you from self-limiting beliefs of who you “should” be, and from soul crushing work out of synch with your true talents. I take great pride in knowing that through our work together, each client I’ve mentored is well down the path to a fulfilling and successful professional life.

We can meet at my Center City Philadelphia office, by phone, or Skype.

Seth has helped me greatly in building my business. He has shown me how to get out of my own way, and go after the work I want. Since working with Seth my business and income has grown, and I believe I am communicating better with my clients. He is a truly nice guy and I enjoy talking with him.

Seth’s practice offers the best of both worlds: systematic, insightful self-examination coupled with genuine compassion. He helps you to cut through the chaff in order to determine what’s preventing you from being fulfilled. What separates Seth from the rest is the amount of thoughtful, personal attention he provides. He does not offer ‘cookie-cutter’ solutions or meaningless motivational mottos. Creative Vision Coaching offers the chance to dig deep and realize your aspirations with an engaged, experienced, and motivated coach.
