    Mark was a joy to work with! He is empathetic, articulate and asks all the right questions to get you moving forward. He helped me through a challenging transition and went above and beyond to offer both professional guidance and personal insight. I could sense his genuine commitment to providing exceptional support from day one. I also must mention that he offers a vast library of resources that should get an award in it of itself. I am so very grateful for his invaluable support and highly recommend his services to anyone who wants to move ahead!

    I worked with Mark over the past few months & it was a great experience. Mark is a great coach with a passion to work with others to take them to the next level. He has an ability to simplify a problem and have you focus on what's important to you. I have had amazing work experiences in my career but was struggling to define "What's my Brand". Mark worked with me on that and was able to clearly articulate "Who I am" and the "Value" I would bring to any organization. I have always been very confident on my abilities but with the extra guidance, I am better prepared for the next stage in my career. Thanks Mark!

    It has been a great pleasure working with Mark. When I reached out to Mark I was stuck in a professional role that I did not feel enjoyable and did not know the direction I should go. After talking with Mark in the first call I knew he was the coach I need. Mark's comprehensive system helped me see the big picture, find out my passion and improve my skills to find my dream job. Mark helped my make the plan for my career transition and empowered me to execute it. He is great to talk to and asks questions that are important to succeed in my career transition. Mark is patient and works with me to improve my resume, LinkedIn profile and networking skills. He also does mock interviews with me and gives constructive suggestions. My interviews skills have improved a lot and I am not much more confident. If you are looking for a career coach, Mark is the one!

    Mark really made me slow down and look at the big picture. He has developed a comprehensive system with various exercises that helped me really pinpoint what I am trying to convey in my interview process. Mark is a great listener so he did not plug me into his program but customized his approach to my needs. He realized the things that I wanted to get out of this process (creating a stronger brand for myself, managing my search more efficiently, and networking) and tailored his program to me. An added bonus of Mark is he has an extensive network of people that he can introduce you to. I highly recommend Mark as a career coach. He will help guide you through the process and you will come out a stronger candidate.

    Becoming your personal best!
    Career Coaching - one month of intensive focus, weekly calls with Mark to review progress on the modules he has carefully curated. Truly made a difference! At first, I wasn't sure if I needed or could benefit from a coach - but working with Mark definitely changed my mind about that. As he so rightly stated, even athletes work with a coach and they help realize a better you. So if you are ready to embrace your journey in becoming your personal best - I'd highly recommend going to Mark. He has a gift in making this kind of journey rewarding!

    One of the best decisions you'll make
    In the spring of last year, I found myself at a crossroad- unhappy at work and really questioning what I wanted to do as a career. I decided to begin my search for a career coach and within a few weeks of intro sessions with a number of coaches, I found C-Synergy. It wasn’t long after my intro session with Mark, that I decided to press forward and make the investment for myself and my future. During our sessions, Mark walked me through a series of introspective exercises which helped me shape my life vision, determine the career paths I wanted to pursue and understand my wants, needs, and desires in future job opportunities and companies. Those were extremely helpful exercises as they helped me to narrow down the list of firms which I wanted to work for. While going through these exercises, Mark also helped me to refine my resume, LinkedIn profile and interview skills. Motivated. Attentive. Reliable. Kind - are key qualities I would use to describe Mark. He truly is motivated to help his clients overcome some of the self-imposed obstacles which keep them from achieving their goals. At times, when I’ve allowed myself to let fear in the way of my short and long term goals, Mark kept me motivated, encouraged, and helped me to overcome some of those fears. He is attentive to some of my patterns and has not been afraid to point out some of my tendencies such as pushing things aside and not setting dates or times to achieve certain goals. In turn, his observations helped me to set better daily and weekly goals for myself. Mark is responsive and reliable. I remember being faced with a difficult situation at work and calling him to seek advise on how to best approach the situation. He helped me to remain calm, level headed, and provided me with the necessary guidance on how to best proceed. Lastly, Mark is very personable and kind. He’s easy to talk, provides great insight and is very easy going and understanding. Overall, my sessions with him have helped me both personally and professionally. I’ve since found and have been enjoying a new career opportunity with a great firm; I’ve have been setting better personal and professional goals for myself and have learned to overcome some of my fears while pursuing my dreams. I highly recommend C-Synergy!

    He did this for me and he can do it for you!
    I am very excited to recommend Mark as a career coach. Excited may seem too exuberant a word unless you have been in a position where you need his services. I was in a very unpleasant professional situation. Throughout our time together Mark provided insight, a clear process, and a positive message. Together we turned a negative into education, perspective, concrete techniques, and a path forward. I feel much more confident and have a more mature professional perspective that is already helping me in my current position and my search for a new one.

    Career Coach who genuinely wants to help
    Mark is a fantastic coach. I hired him to help me with my resume & job search. He even offered a complimentary phone call before I signed up to discuss my needs & how he can add value. He guided me in making my resume impactful and directed me on job search and networking strategies. He doesn’t use a generic approach but figures out where you are in the process, what help you need for immediate support, and which areas to focus upon for the best results. Mark's got a great personality and a very positive attitude. He really wants to help you achieve whatever your goals are! I highly recommend working with him.

He was instrumental in helping me to make a decision to take over a position that I was hesitant to accept. Mark is compassionate, kind and knowledgeable. But most importantly, he knows how to take you out of darkness to the light, and make you believe in Yourself. Thanks for everything you did for me, Mark.

    Great Coach
    Working with Mark was a better experience than I had hoped for. It was therapeutic in that he helped me to see things differently and practical in that he understands the business world and it's operations. That was exactly what I needed. I learned to look at myself a little differently and understand how that translates into the workplace. We had a lot of great discussions that helped me clarify my strengths, adjust my perspective and find the confidence to believe in what I have to offer. I said to him several times that the way he lays out his business perspectives is so clear and concise that it left me in a state of wow, like how did I not see it like that? Of course, I knew I couldn't see it like that and that's why I needed a coach. I needed someone who could help me understand more clearly business/careers/goals and guide me to a better place as an individual ready to go after these things. Great experience that's helped my confidence and belief that things are possible if you can overcome the fears that are often holding you back.

    Your Next Career Coach
    Mark is a fantastic coach, and was able to deliver an immediate impact on my job search strategies and outlook. We really hit the ground running. This next part's important: His framework is far from being a "one size fits all" approach. One of Mark's core strengths is his ability to adapt and tailor his work to the individual -- he quickly diagnosed where I was in my process, where I needed some immediate support, and where we could focus our efforts for the best returns. But this was not at the expense of longer-term planning and strategy. Mark also helped me define my true north, encouraging me to evaluate new opportunities against my newly-re-defined career focus. All this while being relentlessly positive, insightful, and encouraging. Mark's got a great personality and sense of humor, and is a pleasure to work with. It's pretty obvious that he lives for this work. If you're looking for a coach who can meet you at your level and deliver results, offer insights from the perspective of an executive, or teach you some winning strategies for everything from job search to salary negotiations, Mark's your guy.

I'll certainly be working with him again in the future!

    As an educator, one honors continuous learning and growth. In the pursuit of an Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology, I felt the desire to grow in my professional life and make a drastic change. To begin this process I reached out to a career expert, Mark Langford. Leaving a profession with no specific future profession identified was scary and discouraged by many of my peers, however, I knew there was something better out there for me. Mark helped me first by figuring out who I was. What did I want? What were the things that I wanted in a career? Mark helped me to dig deep into my personality, look at my “weaknesses” and begin overcoming them, reevaluating or removing them. Once we had determined my career and life “must-haves” we began exploring careers that met those wants and suited my strengths and skills. The best fit? Instructional Desig in the corporate realm. We began preparing my resume to best impress future employers and began honing my interview skills. I developed my networks and became more confident in myself and my skills. Changing careers and “embracing my career identity crisis” has led me to my dream career, being an Instructional Designer. I could not have done this without Mark Langford and his vast knowledge and experience in career counseling. Mark helped me to develop, not only as a professional, but as a person.

    I found Mark Langford through an online search and signed on with him after reading his testimonials.  I spent about 3 hard-working months with Mark. It culminated with an offer for a dream job in a different industry. His coaching is worth every penny!   The details: I am a mid-career marketing professional at a large corporation who felt stuck in a dead-end job in a declining industry.  Having interviewed for new jobs for over a year without getting any offers, I decided it was time get professional help.  I needed to shed the negativity from my existing job, and I was worried that it was impeding my job interview performance.   After our initial conversation, I knew that I wanted to work with Mark.   His approach is very engaging, supportive and results oriented and he tailored a plan specific to my needs. Mark and I worked a lot on positive thinking and on changing my job search approach.  His philosophies focus around mindfulness and authenticity - which I believe the corporate world needs a lot more of!  I started working with Mark in February and continue to practice the insights and advice he gave me on a daily  basis.  It has really helped me to move past my obstacles and to consciously create a future that I truly want.   Practically speaking, Mark also helped me identify target companies that fit me, clean up my cover letters and resumes, and put together interview tactics and strategies that helped me to stand out.  The result was increased opportunities, more clarity and focus and, ultimately, an exciting new position at a company I truly admire!   I highly recommend Mark to my friends and colleagues, but know that he requires you to work on yourself and that you get out of it what you put into it.  If you're ready for it, Mark will provide direction, challenge, support and accountability to take your game to a whole new level!

    Working with Mark has been a great experience. He really helped me understand the steps I have to take to make change happen. Now, to get the most out of working with Mark, you definitely have to do your assignments! Make sure that if you decide to work with C-Cynergy, that you are also ready to make a commitment to completing your assignments. Completing the assignments are not only an insightful experience for yourself, but Mark is excellent at going through the assignments with you and understanding them at a level that will clarify your wants and desires. Also, Mark has a positive and fun energy about him, so working with him is a lot of fun. I had a very fun experience with Mark when I attended a networking event with him. I had not been out networking in some time and I felt pretty rusty, but going to the event with Mark and having him throw me into the mix (Yes, he will throw you out there!) really helped me come out of my shell and within minutes I was connecting with other great folks at the event. If you are finally ready to take your career to the next step, hire C-Synergy!

    There are moments in your life where you face immense challenges that test your will, strength, and courage. When I met Mark about 6 months ago I was at the lowest point I had ever been in my career. Prior to that point everything was working out just as I had dreamt it. As a 32 year old portfolio manager for an investment advisory firm I was outperforming the market, attracting new assets, and feeling like I could do no wrong. Destiny was playing out and I was meant to make a straight ascent to the top right away, or so I thought. In early fall of 2015, what could go wrong did. One of my largest holdings cratered and what had been constant praise from clients turned to intense ridicule and unrelenting criticism. I wanted to give up and run to relieve the discomfort and fear, even if it meant leaving my dream behind. Enter Mark.. After encouragement from my family I decided to seek advice from a coach, which was a brand new idea to me. He was the perfect choice given his corporate background (and time spent on Wall Street). I left our first meeting enlightened and encouraged that I could get my life back on track. It was about more than just charting a path forward in my career it was about exploring my inner feelings, confronting my fears, and realizing life is about enjoying the journey and not being solely focused on the destination. I feel one of Mark’s greatest gifts is his ability to put everything into perspective. He is able to help his clients see the bigger picture (not only as it relates to career but also when it comes to life). Mark realized the passion I had for my work and wouldn’t let me give up. He has reinforced the fact that we can’t appreciate all the good in life without experiencing challenging times along the way. One of the most important things our time together helped me realize was that there is no such thing as failure if you are true to your word and if you give everything you have. Mark has a very organized and effective way of working with his clients. This includes phone calls/in person meetings, written exercises, reading, audio, etc. He has been there for me every step of the way and is extremely responsive (there have been multiple times I have called just to talk through a hard day and he is always there!). He has helped me set clear goals, network, become more organized, and he has given me the tools to be able to deal with stress. I view Mark as a life-long friend, who just happens to be an amazing coach. My challenges with the market are still ongoing, but my zest for life and the confidence I have in my professional ability has never been stronger. If you are looking to advance personally and professionally, Mark is an excellent choice to help you get there!

    Over 25 years into my career, I felt the need to look for a coach because I was frustrated, confused, exhausted and feeling a little stuck in my current role. I still loved my job, but I felt like I was not utilizing all of my talents and creativity. I had read many “self-help” books, but I could not seem to get over the hurdle of solving my own problems. Then I connected with Mark. He was able to help me get to the heart of what was holding me back – my own limiting beliefs. Through his own rich experiences and intuition, and by working through the process he outlined for me, Mark helped me see things from a different perspective. Now I feel reenergized, empowered, confident and motivated! He has been instrumental in helping me see so many expansive possibilities not just in my career, but in my life. I’m still working with Mark on building out my new path, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Thank you Mark for making such a difference! If anyone out there is on the fence about coaching, I highly encourage you to contact Mark and see for yourself the difference that the right coach makes.

    I was in a big-time rut and because of my time spent with Mark, I was able to transcend my situation and see a whole world of options of which I had no previous awareness. He provided many tools for me to work with, and he held me accountable which was something I very much needed at the time. He genuinely cares about his clients, and gives 100% of himself to the process. If you are looking for a boost in your career and to live a richer, fuller life, then Mark can help you get there. He has an innate talent of being able to cut to the chase of your issue, and exposing it in such a way that it can be easily handled. I would recommend him to anyone looking to get more out of life.

    I am so glad I chose Mark as my coach! Mark not only helps and advise on how to make a career transition, but he helps you take a step back and look at your career and life comprehensively - I don't think I would have that gotten elsewhere. He offers tailored and genuine advice and he truly "gets it" - I have several instances where I needed real-time perspective and he has been very responsive and helped me think through sticky situations. Mark also is the guy who will give it to you straight - in my 15 year career in corporate America, I've not gotten such realistic and helpful career advice. By working with Mark I've developed a better foundation and perspective on my career (and life,) while receiving actionable coaching on reaching my career goals.

His Career Synergy System, and one on one coaching, is helping me to better manage my time, plan my goals, and get motivated to create measurable results and be more productive. When I came to Mark, I was stuck. I couldn't find a way out of my rut. I knew I had potential, but I was not able to get past my limiting beliefs and behaviors. Mark is helping me to get closer to my dream, and now I feel that I have someone who can keep me on track and hold me accountable.

    Before I started working with Mark, I felt paralyzed by the difficult decisions I had to make relating to my life and career. Mark has provided me with a systematic way to approach these decisions. I think everyday we doubt ourselves and our abilities in small ways. Over time, we let these doubts become beliefs that limit our choices. Part of Mark's process is to take these beliefs and deconstruct them, which has been very useful for me (it turned out that I had a lot of these beliefs). One thing that I think separates Mark from a lot of other career consultants is his vast knowledge and diverse network. Each week before our session Mark sends me an extensive email filled with resources that he thinks might be useful for me to look at, questions to ask myself, and contacts in his network that he thinks might be useful to activate. Mark has also helped me setup a timeline to achieve my career goals. Every week, he identifies exercises or tasks that I should do that relate to my goals. I was amazed at how much this helped improve my productivity and confidence with my career exploration. I can thank Mark enough and I highly recommend him!

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
I simply enjoy being of service to others and live vicariously through their successes.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Deep self-reflection and sound-boarding. We all have an inner voice that connects us to our higher consciousness. I am simply a facilitator of answers that flow from what you already know. I help people get out of their own way and to connect to their inner genius.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Helped a trucker driver transition into a design position. Helped several unemployed people find jobs. Helped a VP secure a CFO role. Helped a president of a winery step into independent consulting. Helped a corporate employee step out and start their own business. Helped many figure out what their true passion and career calling is.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Follow your inner-knowing, it will let you know if a Coach is right for you. If you feel ease and flow in their presence, it is a good match. If you feel the slightest resistance or uneasiness, then it's probably best to keep looking.
