Who Is Misha Rubin?
I am a Career Educator. Until recently I was a Partner at Ernst & Young, where I spent 15 fruitful years. I managed hundreds-million-dollar worth of projects, advised a countless number of clients and guided hundreds of careers.

My corporate experience, personal quest for meaning and fulfillment, and rigorous study birthed Leap by Design method (previously know as career leap method)- a pragmatic, elevating, and actionable process designed for people to obtain clarity about change they want to generate, including career, leadership impact, legacy and life more broadly.

I've shared my teachings with hundreds of professionals, executives, entrepreneurs, leaders, RWRs (retired without retiring) and students.

Apart from helping people discover what's next for them, I am a recording artist (check out my music album ARE WE READY under Misha Lyuve), an adoptive parent of three, and a board member of Worldwide Orphans.
and...
I've been there:

- hopping from job to job without direction
- being laid off
- being burnt out and overworked
- looking for "passion" without finding it
- returning to work after paternity leave leaving my 5-month old daughters home
- projecting success on the outside while feeling emptiness on the inside
It took me 20 years, but now I do work that's fully aligned with my values, makes a difference for others, and works for my life and my family.
Your next move doesn't have to fee like "jumping off the cliff"...   because you can discover and pursue it with an experienced guide using a proven method. 
The question is
"What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
-Mary Oliver

When You Discover Your Career Leap...
Barbara P., DC, MBA, Senior Manager 
Transitioning later in career
I am making a transition later in my career & knew I needed some assistance in my next steps. The program challenged me to view opportunities from a different perspective & to focus on things I had overlooked.

The exercises & tools we used were captured in a way that I can always access them to keep me on track!
Anna O., Executive, Financial Services
Needed structure and motivation
This was a very useful exercise for me, simply because it stimulated and motivated me to think outside of my current routine.

It is not something I would have normally done without a structured motivation, just because we all get so swamped and set in our ways, and time simply flies
Rebecca W., NC, Nurse
After 30 years, transitioning with clarity and security
I was looking for as I transition out of a 30 year career as a nurse into something that will not only provide an income but be work I am aligned with completely and thoroughly enjoy doing.

By then end the program I gained not only a solid plan for pursuing a new opportunity within the organization I currently work for but also a detailed plan for making my dream job a reality in the very  near future.

What Others Say
Alex M., NY, Banking, IT Executive
Stuck, bored, but the paycheck was important
I’ve been lucky to have had a successful career - as part of exciting technology start-ups jetting around the world, to key positions with big financial services firms. In the recent years, I’ve become bored, unfulfilled, and frankly hating every weekday morning. But the paycheck was important.

After working with Misha, I find myself suddenly excited with my career prospects aheadI’m clear and confident about the next steps in my career - something I have not felt in a long time!
Ina G., PA, Data Science
From confusion to clarity
Pandemic reshuffled a mix of my personal circumstances and priorities.  The Career Leap framework allowed to fit early open-ended exploration within a more structured approach and a sense of path, avoiding "analysis paralysis."

Misha has an exceptional ability at framing and formulating complex, fuzzy and unstructured matters. I wanted to thank Misha for all his help, facilitating exploration and revealing blind spots.
Anna S., 41, Connecticut, Architect
There is a method to discovering your passion
Misha allowed me to step away from 'my job as means of survival' mindset and recall what I am actually passionate about in life and in my career.

I've got back my spark, interest, and curiosity. As a result, several new work opportunities surfaced immediately and I'm currently pursuing them.
