Yuri's consulting, advising, and coaching portfolio includes speaking engagements, workshops, and advisory work on personal and professional development.

Yuri trains client teams on ways to maximize talent retention, learning and development using storytelling, branding, and personal development. And he has a book coming out soon -- What Millennials Really Want from Work and Life.
Yuri and Stew talk about how the trajectory of careers has changed; the pros and cons of career switching; and the effects of mobility for individuals, families, organizations, and society. But to start, Yuri describes his own remarkably mobile professional life -- he’s not yet 40 and he’s had, as he says, five careers -- and then explains what he calls the four pillars on which you have to focus in order to align who you are with what you do: life mission, values, outcomes, and role. These practical guidelines derive not only from his reflecting on his own journey through life so far, but also from research and evidence drawn from various fields.
