Building and Reaching A New Professional Image


Background Dilemma:



Marie contacted me when she had been seeking to transition to a more stable career. It was during the current financial crisis (2009) and not an easy thing to do during this time. However in our initial discussion I could tell some of immediate problems were finding direction for her new small business.


Marie has extensive experience and skills across several areas and this fortunate situation had a downfall. It made it difficult for her to see her way to a clear vision. Working with me via phone and remote computer, we quickly identified her goals, and began to chart a course to acheive those.


The need:

This was a terffic case of the ability being there, and the support of an insightful and empathetic coach to draw out them out from within the client was what was needed.


At thhis point, we continue to meet about every other week.



Marie has told me several times how her sessions with me moves her much more quickly through the process than when she works alone. From her perspective: The keys are the coach's experience and willingness to provide support, and my focus on building goal setting skills and  accountability practices.
