Bringing joy to your career journey with Everything DiSC®.

About Us

Mia Birk
Professional Coach, Business Leader and Mentor Mia Birk

Every Career is a Journey.
Drawing from 30+ years ferociously building programs and teams in the worlds of business, government, academia and non-profit, I coach professionals on their own career journeys. From getting unstuck to elevating to transitioning from one phase to another, I help rethink, tweak, see things in a different light. Together, we adjust perspective, find resources, rework approaches, and overcome challenges.
I am particularly knowledgeable about professional service businesses and the fields of active transportation, urban planning and design, and community development. I also work with companies, groups and organizations to create a thoughtful and thorough approach to elevating women to top positions.
I bring with me a versatile and robust toolkit of positive and proven tricks and techniques, a never-ending well of positive energy, and a passion for helping people achieve balance and success. It is my greatest joy to put my experience, energy, and wisdom to good use and I apply a business lens to ensure individual progress translates to organizational success.
No one succeeds in business or life without help, and with the right coach, one can break through a thorny obstacle, rapidly accelerate a career, dramatically change a troubled relationship, overcome internal angst, transform anxiety into motivation. In my experience, many successful people recognize what they know and don’t know, what they’re good at and where they need help.
I offer dispassionate and effective listening, an ability to “see” beyond the words and get to the root of a problem, a treasure trove of communication tips and ideas, and hundreds of real-life experiences from which to draw.
Let your journey be filled with joy.


  • Elevating Women

    Using EverythingDiSC as a starting point, we explore what we as women can and should do to enhance our individual strengths, traits, talents, and skills on our journeys to the highest levels desired. We also work with organizations to assess what they can and should do to create cultures and opportunities for women to thrive and accelerate to the highest levels possible.
