In this style of coaching the coach works with the client to create awareness and action in all aspects of their life that is consistent, congruent and an authentic reflection of the individual’s whole self.
Life Coaching Testimonials
"Coaching from Lisa was ultimately responsible in helping me balance my career with other aspects of life." | When I started working with Lisa, I anticipated taking tests to find out my interests, etc., before actually working on where my strongest gifts and passions would take me. I was really surprised when on the first phone call I had several "aha" moments about my actions and beliefs, and how they really work in my daily life. Lisa is very bright and naturally inquisitive. She was very present in our sessions and always seemed to be a step ahead of where I was heading. She knew the right question to deeply challenge me to find new ways to align my inner values with my daily and longer term plans, and ultimately turn them into measurable actions!Lisa's background in business, engineering, and environmental sciences allowed her to understand exactly what I was dealing with in my career so our solutions were very realistic! Coaching from Lisa was ultimately responsible in helping me balance my career with other aspects of life. I'm much healthier because of our work together and feel much more empowered in everything I do." Shelley Holly, Environmental Planner
"I was hoping to make a career transition in keeping with a longtime personal goal, but had standing commitments to my business partners, clients, and colleagues." | "Following the launch, growth, and acquisition of a consulting business, I was hoping to make a career transition in keeping with a longtime personal goal, but had standing commitments to my business partners, clients, and colleagues. By engaging in coaching, I was able to craft a long-term plan that helped me clearly define my personal goals, taking into account my skills, interests, and personal style. By working with Lisa, a seasoned coach with work experience in my industry and knowledge of the players, I was able to quickly work through current and specific challenges that cropped up from week to week while retaining a focus on my end goals.Some of the most critical benefits of working with an executive coach for me included the accountability that comes with setting goals, establishing a personal plan, and sticking to a timeline to see the results. Lisa also provided very personal insights and guidance that helped me find the best way for me to manage workplace conflict, stress, and identify my desired mix of personal and career goals.The outcome for me was ideal - I was actually able to achieve my desired transition within my targeted timeline, with the support of those around me. Throughout the process, I feel that I developed some life skills in setting personal priorities, including strengthening my ability to stake out and stand by a position, and managing conflict. These are skills that I can apply throughout my life. Throughout my entire coaching engagement, I felt Lisa was my advocate and enjoyed every conversation, while gaining insights and support for taking on new challenges."' - Alison T., Co-founder of energy efficiency consulting firm
