You're talented and driven
As a professional with a record of success and achievement, you get things done. But now you're in a place that you never expected to be. The world has changed since the last time you looked for a job. You're not sure that you want to do the same thing that you've been doing, and the process of setting a new direction is challenging to do on your own.
People tell you to find your passion, but that's not so easy when you've given your all to your current career and family for many years. Determining your next step may be complicated by negative feelings arising from your situation. It's tough to discuss, even with people close to you.
I help my clients to figure out how they can get back in the game on terms more to their liking. If you work with me, you will work through a series of exercises to help you to understand your strengths, your preferences and your current priorities. Part of this work will involve exploring feelings that may be holding you back. I also recommend that clients opt for taking the Hogan Assessment, which will describe your personality strengths, behavioral risk factors, and values. Enhanced self-awareness will improve your chances of success. It takes about 60 minutes and is taken on-line.
My program is based on accountability and has serious expectations around action on your part. It is 80% coaching and 20% mentoring so that you will move forward to meet your goals. You were never one to shrink from a challenge, so you can do it!
Let's get started! Set up a complimentary session to learn about working with me.
What people say
"Thanks to your coaching, I'm about to celebrate my second anniversary in a fabulous job after taking several years off for my family. I couldn't have done it without you!" - G.F., Marketing Executive
"Thank you for your help in helping me to discern a new direction. It was so helpful to have someone keep me on track and offer insight as I progressed. I love my new job!" - G.S., Healthcare
"Kris has been a terrific coach, helping me chart a clearer course to achieve my professional goals within the framework of my overall spiritual and personal life path. I felt the need for a coach/mentor who could assist me to make time for my own development and become less conflicted in the midst of a demanding schedule of ramping up a start-up business, parenting a young child and keeping up with other commitments. The Energy Leadership Assessment has been a very useful tool for gaining helpful insights in this process. The structure and support Kris provided in weekly coaching sessions and the "homework" that we agreed on together based on my personal goals have made me feel much clearer about my direction and more focused, effective and energized."
- D. W., Entrepreneur
"I started working with Kris when I started my new job, which required me to step up to a leadership role. Kris gave me advice on how to navigate this new position, especially as an introverted person. We met weekly, and discussed areas where I wished to improve, including public speaking, and running and speaking up at meetings. Kris is a great listener, and she easily and readily distills my issues to get to the heart of the matter. She applies insight from her many years of experience as a senior executive in the corporate world for tangible and well-tested advice. When I first started my new job, I was extremely nervous about my ability to perform, but after working with Kris, I have learned methods and techniques to deal with various situations that have improved my self-confidence." - J.N., Higher Education
"Kris is a very professional and wonderfully talented coach! I had the privilege of working with her for twelve weeks! During that time Kris worked with me on important topics ranging form time management to heightening my energetic presence. In each session I was provided with a safe space to explore my thoughts and emotions all while being championed and encouraged to keep taking a step forward no matter how small! Thank you Kris, for keeping me accountable! I am grateful for your partnership during my journey of self-discovery and personal development!" - Stephanie H.
"When my job was on the line, Kris helped me to understand how I could change my communication style to be a more effective leader. She showed me how important emotional intelligence is and how I could raise mine. Thanks to her coaching, I'm doing better at work and even at home." - D.E., Finance
"Kris has and will continue to play a large role in my professional and personal development. I met Kris during my tenure as an associate at Con Edison's Leadership Programs. She was my mentor. As her mentee, Kris identified my challenges as a speaker and coached me to address and challenge my weaknesses. What I thoroughly enjoyed while working with her is that she is not aggressive in her delivery. She speaks in a consultative manner, allowing the individual to choose how to improve, given the options. Kris's determination to ensure those she has committed to working with is greatly shown and I thank her for being a great mentor while I was at Con Edison and her continuation of the mentorship today." - Emily Yu, Account Manager, Pinterest
