Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Plain old life skills mean more and more in today's society of service. My clients each get a personalized program with homework! Here are some of the topics covered:

First Impressions
Goals - what are goals? How to you set and reach them?
Commitment - what does that mean?
The Journey - it's not always about results....
Self esteem - how do you feel about yourself?
Personal Development - always room to grow
Mindset - daily attitude
Dealing with difficult people

How to interview successfully
Choosing your career path
Listening skills

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. Successfully coached a sales rep on the verge of getting fired. Her boss knew she was talented and hired me to work with her for 2 months. Through weekly meetings and honest communication, we were able to get to the root of her issues and create solutions. Given homework assignments and encouragement from her spouse, she is now a highly valued manager with increased productivity, sales and attitude!

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Personality match and respect are key to building a good relationship with a coach. Do your research. Look for references and don't stop until you find what's right for you!

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I have a real talent for getting to the challenge and then I am solution oriented. Communication is key. I can always find a way to hear things you "don't" say. My patience level is off the charts!
I believe that everyone deserves to be the best at who they are and what they do. I will help get you there.

Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?

A. I hired one of my former students as a file clerk. She was the first of 13 children to graduate from high school. She was already married with a child. She worked with me for more than 10 years ending with her role as Office Manager. Her growth and enthusiasm was so much fun to be a part of. I'm very proud of her!
