COACHING

I work with motivated individuals who are either in need of assistance in their current employment situation, finding a new job,  or are planning ahead to continue working in the stage of life formerly known as retirement. Most of my clients have been leaders and want work that ignites their passion, touches their spirit, and doesn’t feel like work.

My ideal clients have experience, expertise, and want to make a respectable income. It is men and women who are up-to-something and who value the collaboration and support that only a coach can provide.

Who is coaching for?

My program is best for someone who is looking for more than just another job. Yes, even in “this” economy, if you are willing to accept “any” job, you will be able to find one. But you don’t need coaching for that. Coaching will help you if you’re–

  • Eager to change the part(s) of your life that no longer fit (including your work) and reinvent them.
  • Looking for a guide who clearly sees who you are, who you’re capable of becoming, and challenge you to see all the amazing options that are open to you.
  • Ready for someone to listen to your ideas and ask questions that push you into a higher level of thinking and acting.
  • Willing to be held accountable for taking your dreams into DOING and putting your words into ACTION so you’ll land where you want to land!

Who is coaching NOT for?

Coaching is not for everyone. Coaching is for people who want it and are determined to make a change. If you’re not committed to learn new skills, let go of old ways of doing things, face your fears, explore different options and opportunities, then you are not ready for coaching.

What do I get for my investment?

You get absolutely nothing if you don’t do the work. If you’re not ready to roll up your sleeves and get down and dirty, please don’t waste your time (or mine) trying to move forward in your life with our coaching sessions.

However, if you want a career coach (who’s worked in a variety of industries, understands organization politics and made several successful transitions) by your side mentoring you every step of the way, giving you sound information about resources to use, what plan to follow, what strategy is most effective and the potholes and pitfalls to avoid—this is what you get for your investment.

What results can I expect?

Your results depend on how much work you choose to do and how well you complete your agreed-upon steps in between our sessions. My commitment will match your own and I am fully committed to seeing my clients through to their goals.

I hear people occasionally comment, “I feel like I should be able to do this myself by reading one of my self-help books.” But without someone to challenge your thinking and pushing you out of your comfort zone, your growth may be limited. Where will you be next year if you don’t start now

Testimonials

Although I had your business card for a few weeks, I hesitated calling you until one day, I just felt inspired to contact you. Am I glad I did! After applying for literally hundreds of jobs this past year with not even one interview…after sending the résumé you created for me, not only did I get the interview, but I got the job! I feel that God inspired me to move forward and sent you into my life when I needed it the most. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

So, thought I'd brighten your day!  My new supervisor complimented my resume. She said she liked the summary at the top. She also commented that she wasn't positive that my background would've jumped out as a perfect match, but it was written in a way that highlighted my skills as a match for her needs. The resume you wrote for me did much more than any of those things, however. It changed the way I view myself.  It supported me, and gave me a confidence that I was lacking at that time. When I first saw your draft, I didn't immediately connect with it, yet I knew it was all truth. It grew on me, or I grew into it. By the time I walked into those last 2 interviews, I had a new confidence. Something deeper than just knowing I could do the job. I knew I was the right choice. That confidence, that knowing, attracted those jobs to me as surely as my credentials well presented.  It was both, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I just wanted to write and let you know how much I appreciate your help with my resume. It worked!!! I have had 3 interviews, a step I did not reach before. While I have not received a job offer yet, I know it is just a matter of time before I find a position that is the right fit. Your help with the resume made all the difference!

I have built my business through satisfied clients so I cherish testimonials. One of the most stand-out testimonials that was given to me was shared by a client I coached to help her with an upcoming interview.

This client told me later, that she had met a woman at a community event. Jen shared about looking for a position and was telling her about the "biz coach" who prepped her for the interview. The other woman mentioned how she found this excellent person to do her resume and that the résumé itself was highly complemented on in her interview. And best yet, she got the job in the end! In a few minutes, they deducted they were both talking about the same person…ME!
