Vladimire is a dynamic life coach! She is practical, provides a progressive thoughtful perspective, is resourceful, kind and always the consummate professional. I feel empowered, and my life is transforming for the better. Thank you Vladimire for encouraging me to "see" the real me!
I decided to hire a Life Coach to talk to 22 young men and women in their early '20s who were uncertain about their future as they were entering the real world. They were anxious, afraid, unsure, many with low self-esteem (though many had done great in their respective colleges) and just didn't know what steps were necessary to not only blend in but excel in their jobs or positions they were looking for in their fields. We had the pleasure of bringing in Mr. Stone who with his larger than life personality, confidence and assurance woke the group up and explained that there was a path out of the woods, you just had to be shown where the clearing was and the rest would take care of itself. He listened carefully to many of the young people, and made sure everyone who spoke felt like their question meant something, assimilated down the fundamentals that were collectively necessary to get them to realize there was an answer; and more than one answer to their issue(s). Through his entrepreneurial background as an Investment Banker to a Producer in Hollywood, to a Private Jet Executive to a Manager of the top 100 Poker Players in the world to being an International Real Estate Executive doing transactions worldwide; his talk just captivated the audience with stories of the down and out (some well known) who turned their lives around using the right tools and told those in the audience they were far ahead of the earlier mentioned people he spoke about in his stories; and he knows exactly how to tell a story that not only moved the youngsters but everyone in the room. He is one of those people that just knows how to say the right thing to the right person and the energy level and enthusiasm just grew and became contagious which was quite a feeling. Though he is a Certified Life Coach which the youngsters never really cared to much about but it seems that his "real" experiences got the students emotionally invested in him and in the fact that they had a plan and map that was the beginning to getting themselves to where they want to go. I can't think of anyone I know who could have turned this room around so when they left the speech they felt better about themselves and their futures. He is the Real Deal!
I didn't fully understand the role of a life coach until I started working with Judy. At first our work was rather concrete. I needed help to identify, set and achieve various goals for myself. Recently, our work has become a bit more esoteric. Now I find myself exploring questions like "How can I be more self-accepting, self-assertive, purposeful, mindful....?" Working with Judy is like having a built in support system. She is compassionate, knowledgeable and passionate about her work. I greatly value her perspective and truly love learning more and more about myself.
Tom has shown that he genuinely cares about how, when, and if I progress. He is invested in whether I actually achieve breakthroughs toward my personal success. Considering that my goals are so immense: to metamorphosize an ashamed, unhappy, ineffective, & lonely guy, with limited professional influence, into a proud, happy, effective, socially fulfilled, & profoundly influential version of myself, it would have been easy for him to give up on me. Even though I'm confident many life coaches in his position would have terminated our relationship months ago, dealing with such a high-maintenance client as myself - expressing to him hundreds of suggestions / criticisms / requests, expecting a personalized experience that caters to my individual needs, and offering frequent pessimism or guarded skepticism at best - he has been patient, flexible, & determined to support my progress. It has been several months since Tom started coaching me, and I have consciously delayed writing a review until I might have a sense not just that he cares and won't give up (after all, that's part of the job description), but that he will actually help me transform myself, in ways that countless others haven't. I have worked with therapist after therapist for years & years, undergone treatment with psychiatrists, hired dozens of countless project collaborators and personal assistants, and tried more times than I can remember to count on the support of family and friends in order to help me make the steady progress needed to break out of a deep debilitating personal rut that has lasted for decades. All of the above have been unsuccessful. I naturally wasn't expecting Tom to be any different. But I gave him a shot, deciding that I deserved a chance for renewed hope. I almost gave up on him and on myself, but he didn't give up on either. And finally, after months of 'blood, sweat, and tears,' I have come to believe there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I'm beginning to make steady transformative progress, and I'm looking forward to the journey that lies ahead. Prerequisites for success: I have to be patient, make a few reasonable leaps of faith, and make an investment in my future, emotionally and financially. I also have to be an active participant and be willing to gradually take the reins myself. I finally have to accept his limitations, while recognizing and counting on his strengths. His limitations: Tom is not a miracle worker, and in comparison to others I've worked with, he's not the most charismatic, inspiring, eloquent, forward, original, perceptive, intellectual, tech-savvy, exciting, or assertive. But his STRENGTHS far outweigh these limitations: He is persistent in his efforts. He is determined to be an ally on the road to victory, offering extra support when needed, never conceding defeat. He is compassionate, showing empathy for my experiences & struggles, frustrations and pain, & and my initial often-pessimistic attitude. He is patient, and will put in the time to understand, listen, and reevaluate / regroup when necessary. He is humble and modest, not expecting recognition, praise, notoriety, credit, or gratitude for going above and beyond. He is affordable, & ends up charging far less money than he could for his time, and far less than any of the other life coaches I considered, let alone being a mere fraction of the cost of a therapist or psychiatrist! He is respectful, as a friend would be, but sensitive & honors any boundaries I set. He never speaks down to me. He is honest, and when requested, very candid about what he thinks needs improvement, more, focus, or a shift in perception. He doesnt rub me the wrong way as a salesman might, as though Im a source of income, but always treats me like a person who deserves to achieve his dreams. He is passionate about helping people. He works very hard, often going above and beyond what others would do, putting his clients ahead of his personal life. He is fair, respects agreements, honors his word, readily forgives, and shows lenience. He is creative, willing to try to approach problems from new perspectives and angles. He is open-minded, willing to work with approaches and systems hes unfamiliar with that I know are likely to be effective. He is trusting, and gives me the benefit of the doubt, while also helping me to become more accountable. He is reliable, and I have been able to count on him in ways I couldnt count on therapists, employees, mentors, friends, & family. His system of "open access" helps me throughout the week, and this unique system of coaching has been the key to my success, helping me beat procrastination and not lose sight of my goals. He is flexible, & accommodates limitations, changes, and conflicts with my schedule, deficiencies in my attitude, and treats my perceived failures like learning opportunities to take a new, more promising approach. He is resilient, and puts up with much more than necessary for someone in his position, and never complained once to me about it. Finally, he is kind, complimentary, and friendly. He's like that 'conscience on your shoulder.' I would recommend him to anyone who is considering hiring a life coach, or to anyone who has unfulfilled dreams they know they deserve to and could achieve, but haven't. Thank you, Tom, for your efforts, and quality work :)
We're off to a great start! I just signed on for a 3 month life coaching cycle with Jerry and am very pleased. I had my 1st coaching skype session earlier this week and gained much clarity and many useful takeaways both through our session and through the discovery questionnaire she gave me to do prior. Life is already feeling better. Jerry is very responsive, kind and professional!
If you are serious about improving your communication skills and your influence in the workplace or in various social settings, then YOU HAVE TO TAKE JUSTIN'S COURSE! I took Justin's communication and sales training course and I was able to recoup 200% of my investment just in a matter of weeks, through Justin's instruction. He taught me how to frame my thoughts and polish my words when speaking to prospective clients. He gave me an effective and flexible system, from beginning to end, on how to sell any product (including yourself). He revamped all of my social media outlets for better presentation, not just for business purposes, but for personal reasons, as well. Justin is serious about your results. If he does not see week-to-week improvements, he will call you out on your lack of progress. To top everything off, Justin's program didn't only improve my sales and communication skills, but he was also able to reignite a burning desire inside of me, which involves changing my work field and industry. Now, I'm taking action to change course in my life...towards what I'm really passionate about. Thanks Justin!
Absolutey excellent job I've never had a constant coach at my fingertips Was excellent to have someone with me on the journey Down 29 lbs. feeling great and high energy
If you are looking for a photographer, and you’re in the area, I would definitely recommend working with Dreannworks! Absolutely amazing, all our photo shoots were like mini adventures, as we traveled from spot to spot. He always made sure that I was satisfied. He never stopped working on a picture until it’s reached it’s full perfect potential. You will not be disappointed with his work. Honestly I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Besides the photography, he got to know me, my insights and perspectives on the world, and I appreciate him for that. Deen is very friendly, helpful, and understanding. His photos are honestly astonishing, I got overwhelmed on the amount of creativity he possesses. I really don’t even have words to even describe how great they’ve been to me, other than the fact that they are amazing. All in all, I will always recommend Dreannworks as he will always try his best to make sure he can bring you’re perfect picture come to life!
"It's funny, but you can be so good at identifying brand attributes and communicating consumer benefits for your clients, but when it comes to doing the same for yourself, it seems to be an insurmountable task. Joanne helped me to identify what value I would bring to a new position and what I wanted in a new job. When an offer came, Joanne was there to coach me through negotiations. As I progress through the new company, I know that circumstances will arise where I will need to think through my approach. And Joanne will be there to coach me through it."
Kevin Burns has a depth of knowledge, compassion and understanding that I haven’t seen and or experienced in a long time. He gave me lots of personal advice to help me get “unstuck” at a time I needed it most. With his advice I was able to turn things around. His words came from a deep place and has helped me “change course” in many areas of my life. He’s warm and very professional and has a good heart. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking assistance. He’s an amazing ‘Life Coach’ ...Keith Gitens
Over the past few years, I've had the great privilege to attend a dozen of these mindfulness workshops through my organization. Each focused on a different aspect -- from communication to time management. They helped me become more focused in life and work.
Insightful, powerful and eye opening. I would be separated right now if I hadn't given coaching with Gillian a chance. It's a fresh approach that opens your eyes to how you are being blocked and simple solutions that are right in front of you but somehow haven't been considered...my wife and I are communicating so much better and are firmly on a new path, and really excited about it...awesome! - Bill
There was an instant comfort I felt with Judy. I had never gone to therapy before and she put me at ease almost instantly. I started having sessions with her at a really difficult time in my professional career, and there were times when I thought I was doing everything I could, but she helped me realize there were more options and other avenues of achieving my goals that I hadn't even explored. Our sessions together really helped me through some very dark times in my life and when I couldn't afford therapy anymore after I lost my job and health insurance plan, she continued to send me text messages just to make sure I was doing ok. She is incredibly thoughtful and has given me valuable tools for handling anxiety and difficult work relationships.
I just started taking classes with Liz and I am glad I found her! She has a vast knowledge of the industry and a unique and efficient teaching style. Her website "I aint playin films" is 100% true because let me tell you she doesn't mess around! She challenges me every class and makes sure I leave a better actor. I feel like she is a mentor and a coach all in one and I look forward to continue working with her :)
Very good. Highly recommended
I truly enjoyed working with Brent. I feel like he really takes the time to listen deeply into what you are saying. I felt heard and understood, which is something I don't say often. We only worked together for a few months, but it was a great few months. He always maintains eye contact and shows great care and compassion. We shared an amazing moment during our work together where I felt like he truly understood where I was coming from and I began to cry. This is something that I don't mind sharing because it just shows how much Brent really takes the time to make you feel comfortable and heard. I highly recommend Brent as a coach.
Patricia Diesel's Life coaching approach and unique one-on-one partnership offered a different technique. Her phone coaching with my decision to invest time to a new way of thinking, preparing and taking action not only brought great success for emptying my storage unit on time, but a transformation in me happened as well. I became empowered and applied the reality of my abilities, values, and accountability to repeatedly bring about a positive result. I take away from this a tool box of skills unique to my strengths, abilities and mindset for success is ready to bring out for all future projects and goals. Her instruction was wonderful but it was her encouragement that brought life to it. Thank you, Patricia!
"Christina had explained the benefit of organizing your LIFE once you finish organizing your space. Once we finished organizing my house, (which was life changing because it brought me so much joy!) we started our lifestyle coaching sessions. It’s the perfect transition for me to address thoughts and ideas that I always think about, but never act upon. By working with Christina I have realized that dreams can come true! We are working together to bring them to life! By putting my goals and dreams into categories and then prioritizing them, Christina helped me formulate steps to capture the experiences that might have escaped, because life is short! I am so lucky and happy to be working with you!!! I LOVE your youth, spirit and wisdom. You are truly something." ~Cathy, Wyckoff NJ
I’ve always been intimidated with working out. As a professional body builder, she knows how to scale workouts to all levels. She’s very knowledgeable, compassionate, and fun to workout with. I lead a very busy life and she is always working to accommodate the needs of all her clients. I’ve been working out with her for 6 weeks now and I see small changes in how my clothes fit and surely a lot more definition. With the meal plan she has me on, I see my belly become smaller and smaller on a weekly basis! Only 6 weeks in and I’m super satisfied! I’ll add pics on 6 months and 12 months!
Recently I have been so busy seeking for what I want in life, and I decided to try this form of emotional healing. Feed the demon has been a powerful transformation in my life. In the process, I kept discovering that my inner child needs so much love and attention that I never gave to her. In the process, Karoline was open, neutral, caring but still let me experience my own feelings. It really lifted up some weight from my body and emotions
My experience was empowering, motivating and exceed expectation. I’m so happy that I decided to have a life coach, and looking forward to sessions that follow.
