I Believe

"When I see your strom clouds begin to dissipate, I feel absolute joy!"

About Cecile Peterkin

Career Confused?  Need to get out of a Professional Rut?  Need to change gears but — WHICH gear, WHICH direction, WHICH strengths?
You need a career coach

Here is what I have learned from my years of coaching — when you are in the middle of a hurricame, you don't try to protect yourself by running outside like a crazy person.  

There is a better way....

My journey has made me what I am.  People look at me and make grand assumptions about my wonderful life.  I do have a wonderful life and it's because I too have been blessed with pain. It's an odd thing to say, true, but it's in those times of complete stop where the most amazing opportuities lie.

Broken, you can now honestly reassess  — why am I in this place, and decide, 'yes, I want to continue' or no, no more'.

What Coaching can do for you

This is where life and career coaching comes in.  I am not in crisis so I see the opportunities that surround you and the potential in you. If you will let me be your guide, I will help you see what I see.  Perhaps it's leadership skills that need to augmented, maybe today's career choice is not what's in your heart, perhaps you are trying to break through what you think is the glass ceiling but could be goals that are working at cross-purposes.  If you are ready, I will help you take the next step in your career, increase your leadership and management skills or help you reevaluate your life's choices.

"When I see your storm clouds begin to dissipate, I feel absolute joy!"

I mean for you to succeed and will help by setting short, quick goals before you.  If you are looking for someone who will be gentle, sweet and let you weep for hours — that's  not me.  But if you are looking for a coach who will work with you, guide you and most of all, be straight with you.  Contact me now for a 30 minute Complimentary Session!

If you are able to hear my words, I promise, you will:

  • Be more confident
  • Take away strategies on how to better navigate in your corporate environment — what to be watching for, how to change the tone of your dialogue
  • Be released from Small Time Thinking and move into your BIG PICTURE
  • Be on your way to fulfilling your dream

Katherine's Story

Women dealing with work related stress

I began working with Cecile in the lowest years of my life.  I’d been victimized in my work, and I was angry, discouraged, negative, and anxious about my future.  Cecile worked with me where I was.  She took the time to get to know me and to understand my values.  Patiently, she helped me find my own strength.  She challenged me to remain positive and helped me think outside my own box.  She helped me to be true to myself.
Now, four years later, I have achieved the career goal I’d been working toward for the past 20 years and was ordained as a minister in the church.  Cecile traveled all the way to Virginia, USA to attend my service.  When I met her in person for the first time that day, I was impressed that her outside so well suited her inside; she was as radiant and inspiring in her person and demeanor, as she is in her character.
I continue to work with Cecile.  I consider our meetings to be one of the best investments I make in both my career and my personal life.  She helps me press on in my journey of becoming the person I am made to be.

Journey of Self-Discovery

Men dealing with work related stress

Coaching refreshes your perspective; renews your vitality; strengthens your confidence; gives clarity through research and self-discovery, and revitalizes your identity and personality.  All of these qualities will make you a strong self-advocate.
You find yourself accomplishing goals in ways you did not expect and in places you have never been before.  Independence is an asset while seeking out what you need to accomplish your goals.  Learning to express your needs through clear communication with employers, educators, family or friends gives them a clearer picture of who you are and what you require to succeed.  A dynamic coach teaches you to go out into the world and seek out your dreams and passions with vigorous determination.
Dynamic Coach
Cecile is fun, professional, patient, influential and attentive to your needs while affecting you with her contagious smile and upbeat personality.
Cecile teaches, coaches, guides, listens, deciphers, gives direction and ideas and lets you sit on them.  She gives you the knowledge and skills.  She shares her wisdom and experience to show you that you are both on a journey together.
She delves into your strengths and weaknesses but allows you time to experience or trial her ideas.  She coaches you to merge her ideas, with your own, based on experiences and research.
Eventually you realize that you are companions on a similar journey; a journey of self-discovery.
