Honestly I had no idea I was working with him! I had seemed his service in requesting help with my health and with my career. I was instantly drawn to him and felt like I could open up with him! I can’t say it was an easy route bc by far it wasn’t! This experience has been by far one of the hardest obstacles I’ve ever had to encounter! I’ve been back in school and pretty much training myself through the whole process or at least it felt like I was alone struggling to make this happen but I’m now realizing that I have a whole Network of people on my side! You guys have given me what they call tough Love! I feel like a renewed & young again (speaking of mentally!) LoL I am just getting started! Have a whole life ahead of me! I’ll never be done learning! Always be helping, contributing, giving, achieveing and being all I can be! If for some reason I fail at a job I’ll still have my children and my children are the most important thing in this world to me! I’ve lost my twin sister years back and my life has been downward since then! John , thank you for that tough Loving! They are the reason I’ve changed! I thank God everyday for helping me to overcome my issues I once had! I look forward to coaching right along side of John! We all need to start helping one another even the small things can make a huge difference ! Anyone like to join in on change?! All is welcome! I’d like to thank all of those that were involved! God Bless each and everyone of you! To everyone’s success! Few others I’d like to mention , Palm beach Research Group, Marketers Traders Institute, Social Security, NBC, CBS, Funnel X Project, Go Daddy,Click Bank, Sen,.....there’s many many more! Forgive me in advance to those I haven’t mentioned. Once again God Bless I love you all! Together we can...CHANGE
As a business owner and CEO most of my professional career, it is difficult to find someone who can cut through all the BS and get down to the core...my core...what drives me...what has held me back? What is the one thing that has been missing? Lea Goldenring helped me find those answers. She is very engaging and creates a very safe healthy environment in which to do some very productive work. I got more out of a few sessions with her than any of the many self help / self improvement books I have read. If you really want to take up your game, Lea is the "real deal" and is a pleasure to work with...Highly recommended!
Melissa's enthusiasm and positivity is infectious and present in everything she brings to the table. She's helped me question and think deeply about what I truly want in life, in both my career and my well being. She's pushed me outside of my comfort zone, and I've grown immensely. I highly recommend Melissa for anyone who is at a crossroads about their future!
Rachel is very experienced and very professional. Loved everything about my session, so helpful, resourceful and full of wisdom. Some eye opening feedback and priceless advice for my career planning and life advice at the time of transition and stress. I felt inspired and empowered. I can't wait to more sessions with her and will be recommending her to friends and family! Thanks Rachel!
I've searched for years for a therapist that felt like a good fit and Dania was just what I was looking for! Her ability to help me think in new ways has helped me grow and navigate some challenging transitions in my life. Dania's professionalism, open minded attitude, flexibility and insight is exactly what I was searching for.
I have had the pleasure of coaching with Summer Simonton regarding my career successes. She "gets" people and life's challenges right away and has been able to quickly guide me down the right path each time. I continue to rely on her coaching and always will. Carole Browne
Nicole played a big role in my career development. My issues have been trying to focus on what I want to do and how to do it, and working with Nicole on those issues put me on the right path for success. What I love about Nicole is that she forces you to see the big picture, ask yourself the hard (but necessary) questions, and then identify the steps to reach your goals. I look forward to using Nicole again when I need to navigate life and career changes, which I anticipate will reduce my fear of making those changes, knowing I have her in my back pocket.
I reached out to Timur at a time in my running career when I needed some guidance in reassessing my relationship with the sport. I had been training for the Olympic Trials and had experienced a particularly disappointing season, which had left me searching for a new approach. Timur was just what I was looking for. He was able to bring his background in therapy, his own experience as an elite athlete, and his martial arts techniques into our sessions. He created a safe space for self-discovery and growth. We delved into advanced body awareness, technical aspects of running, meditation, flow-state running, race planning, and even play. I walked away from our weekly sessions with tools for life, in addition to running. At the end of our time together, I had found the shift in my relationship to running that I had been seeking, thanks to Timur. I would recommend him to any runner, no matter what your experience level. He facilitates a relationship with running that is deep, meaningful, and sustainable. A rare find!
Carrie helped me through some blocks I had with a career change. She is very positive and a great support. I will use her again if I ever need a push in the right direction!
Distinctively different than other coaching services. It was nice to find a coach who had experience in ADD and other learning disabilities. Andrea was extremely approachable and really listened to my needs and goals. Instead of telling me what to do, Andrea had this amazing ability to guide me through questions. She was genuinely intrigued. It was through my own answers that I made the decisions that I did. It is nice to feel in control of your life. Highly recommend WAM and its coaching services for life coaching or career coaching. They are awesome.
Lisa helped me uncover and take action on my life vision. Every area of my life has seen big changes in alignment with that vision. Ive strengthened my marriage, stepped away from a 25 year career in Human Resources, built a company Im passionate about and found balance in my life. Lisas approach is no nonsense and honest. She has an amazing way of keeping you focused on your dream, one step at a time next thing you know youre living it.
Gaynor truly was more than I could have ever asked for. She really helped me focus, provided honest feedback and motivation to help me figure out what I want to do next in my career. I strongly recommend her to anyone in the Bay area looking for a career coach to receive feedback on your resume, career guidance or help you get to that next level.
Jennifer was fantastic! I was facing some tough situations dealing with moving my career forward. I felt stuck, unable to make a decision about moving forward or staying where I am. After my sessions with Jennifer, it became crystal clear what I needed to do. I'm so grateful to Jennifer for giving me clarity and motivation. Plus, her personality makes her feel like a friend as well as a coach.
Dave helped me hone in on goals in all areas of my life - personal, career, fitness - and helped me figure out a workable, achievable plan for making progress in each area. The really great thing is how he interwove those areas - engaging me in conversations about my relationships, for example, while walking or riding our bikes - so that I was actually ACHIEVING progress in every area during the time we spent together. Dave is laser-focused and you have his undivided attention, he is 100% present and there for YOU. You never get the feeling he's rushing you or just killing time until his next client or appointment. Even when I haven't been able to show up in person, Dave will get on the phone with me to make sure I'm staying on track; our conversations have always helped me clarify my thinking. Maybe most importantly - Dave CARES. He really, truly cares about you and your life and helping you reach a more positive, balanced, healthier life. I feel blessed to have him in my life!!
Wendy played a major role in how I was able to realign my life to be more purposeful and gain control of my future. Before I started my sessions with Wendy, I worked at a decent job with above average pay but extremely low job satisfaction in an industry I could care less about and a role I strongly disliked. I am sure this describes most of us! I knew I wasn't truly happy, and Wendy helped me take inventory of my life. She challenged me to think deeper about what kind of life I wanted going forward. With Wendy's help, great patience, and her asking me all the right questions, and through different assessments, I realized it was time (and felt ready) to switch careers, back to what I've always wanted to do. Once we figured that part out, she helped me with resume review, cover letter review, and interviewing techniques through mock interviews. Now I can say I am finally doing what I studied in college, which is what I've wanted all along! If you are looking for a coach or feel that something is off in your life then I would suggest reaching out to Wendy and starting the conversation to create meaningful change in your life.
Congratulations on considering working with Shannon Gibbs as your personal coach. In my experience with Shannon, I can attest to the value she brought to our relationship. She’s unlike a traditional counselor, rather, she brings to the table her coaching hat. Shannon’s skills and innate and spiritual wisdom provided me exactly what I needed during a rough patch where I was struggling with identifying my personal gifts and how they could be best used in a career profession. She helped guide me through an exercise where I was able to discover, through feedback of close family and friends, the personal qualities that I possessed that will propel me to my next career. It took this guided instruction to get me there. She has a nurturing and supportive style that is invaluable if you are feeling stuck and need a little nudge or feel defeated, worn out, confused, dealing with a life crisis or are just plain scared and tired of being stuck. She has backbone, passion, commitment, wisdom and persistence. She is also a natural teacher which shines though in her coaching because her focus is that you be set free so you can soar on your own. It is in these coaching conversations that she talks with you to find the root of your desire to become all that you were created to be. Shannon always has a word of encouragement or correction or wisdom and it’s always delivered in compassion and constructively. She has inspired me to pursue a career passion that, up until now, seemed distant and unattainable. I still have a lot of work and growing to do, but Shannon taught me how to be open to these new possibilities so that I can thrive where I’m meant to be.
I had an introductory half-hour session with Stephanie, in which we discussed where I am currently in my career, what I'm passionate about, and options for the future. I felt that she really listened not only to my words but my emotions as I spoke and this gave me additional insight into my goals. She provided advice and clarity, in terms of my direction. She was very personable and professional. Overall, I felt that she genuinely cared about helping me and that the session was successful. I would definitely contact her again for assistance with my career goals.
My career has transformed completely since working with Emily. I came to Emily feeling stuck in my career and unsure of how to tap into my skills. The coaching process has helped me to learn about myself and what I need to do to succeed. Also, Emily held me accountable to myself and to her which caused me to actually get stuff done and make progress towards achieving my goals. Now, I have my own business, have won a huge international award, and feel confident in my direction. Thank you Emily!!
When Lindsay and I started our work together, I was lost and overwhelmed by the career search. I felt trapped into a prescribed role by my previous job skills, and unable to see a future where I could someday like my job and use my skills to better the world. Lindsay helped me to be realistic and practical about the experiences of my past and my goals for the future. We went through my work history and past roles, and she listened attentively to the challenges and triumphs that led me to where I am today. With her guidance, I was able to clearly come up with a framework for evaluating my next opportunities. She provided human accountability and self-imposed deadlines to keep me on track, and I am pleased to say our work ended with me feeling empowered and in control. Directly through her advice in how to seek out new jobs, I found a part-time role I'm working in now and have a final round interview with a potential dream employer. If you're not sure about career coaching or Lindsay in general, I can't recommend this experience more enthusiastically. She makes the daunting challenge of a career transition feel like an obvious step in the right direction, and for that I am very grateful.
