I'd be happy to chat about The Activated Genius Method, my research, our individual and organizational coaching programs designed to maximize your performance, or Tailored Output in general.

No question it too silly, or too profound. This is my life's work. Let's chat!

Tailored Output is a professional development coaching company with an emphasis on goal-setting, career-planning, and team-building within the context of creating whole and fulfilling lives. 

Individuals working with Tailored Output will uncover their unique genius to identify career opportunities that will contribute to a whole and fulfilled life.

Organizations working with Tailored Output will learn how to assemble multi-disciplinary teams--staffed with engaged and motivated members--to accomplish seemingly impossible tasks in alignment with the corporate mission and values.



Are you at a fork in the road? Have you been working for a while, but maybe not on the right things? Are you ready to refocus your energy? Do you like the idea of coaching but are not quite sure you need a whole program? Are you looking for someone to help you think bigger (and call you on your bullshit)?

My friend,  it's time for a gut-check.

 It's time to dig deep, get unstuck, and get yourself back on the path to where you want to go.


The Gut-Check is all about finding focus.

Within the safe and confidential environment of our coaching conversations, you will call upon your Genius to check-in with yourself, your plans, and your progress.

Then you will leverage that 90 minutes of deep insight to rebuild your strategy and get yourself moving in the right direction. And just to be sure your plans survive first-contact with real life, we'll have a rapid check-in two weeks later, to integrate learning, identify unforeseen obstacles, and double-down on success.




I'm Julie Slanker and I have just the tough-love you need. I'm open-minded and curious. A strategic thinker. And ready to challenge you when you sell yourself short.

I have spent my career assembling the right expertise, information, technology, resources, and equipment to overcome insurmountable challenge. I have master's degrees in Physics and International Affairs and have led scientific and government teams through major reinvention efforts.

I hold a certificate in Leadership Coaching for Organizational Performance from George Mason University. I am a member of the International Coach Federation and abide by the ICF code of ethics. I also am a licensed facilitator of The Desire Map


Gut-check Info

Every Tailored Output coaching program starts with an introduction to coaching and a scene-setter of what’s to come. Unlike the other programs, we'll handle this all over email to keep our coaching time together hyper-focused and rapid-fire.

We'll hold our sessions by phone, by video chat, or in person* (even at your favorite bar), for 90 minutes of introspection, perspective shifting, and strategic planning. Then two weeks later, we'll follow-up with a quick call to integrate additional insights and ideas. 

Short. Sweet. And to the point.
