Dr. Dominique Chlup works with highly accomplished academics, creatives, and executives who decide it’s time to turn their unmet dream into real life. She has served clients at more than 32 universities and colleges and worked with executives at Fortune 100 companies including ExxonMobil, Apple, and Morgan Stanley.
Dominique holds a BA in English and History from Columbia University, MFA in Fiction Writing from Sarah Lawrence College, and two degrees from Harvard – both a Masters in Education and a Doctorate of Education. She’s a published author on over 210 publications and presentations, recipient of 28 distinguished awards, and $6.7 million in grant funding.
For twelve years, Dominique worked as a tenured University professor at Texas A&M University, where she ran the nation's largest Literacy Resource Center for Adult Literacy Learners and went on to co-direct the Promoting Outstanding Writing for Excellence in Research (POWER) program. That’s when Dominique noticed that she and her team weren’t actually teaching, educating, advising, or mentoring people – they were coaching.
Eventually, it occurred to Dominique that she didn’t want to continue life as a professor. She ended up walking away from her tenured academic position to become a coach.
She now helps other high-achieving professionals uncover and map the action steps to finally make what they’ve dreamed about actually happen. She supports her clients as they write the books they’ve always wanted to write, start new chapters in their careers, move to countries that call them, and live the lives they’ve always wanted.
A Professional Certified Coach credentialed by the International Coach Federation, an organization that sets the gold standard for coaching, Dominique gives talks and leads workshops at universities, companies, retreats, and conferences around the world, blending the latest in motivation psychology with real life strategies and stories about crafting a career and life that’s custom built, wildly inspired, and deeply satisfying.
