I have known Jean for about six years. While on a trip together, Jean and I had the opportunity to discuss a variety of topics. Among the topics, there was an abundance of issues related to business.
I felt stuck at a crossroads in my career and I needed executive advice. I have worked with dozens of business coaches through the course of my twenty-eight-year career. Jean had given some incredible insight I had yet to be presented with. I decided to work with Jean as a business coach.
Through Jean’s approach, my perspective was altered and I was equipped to deal with issues that needed to change. She was able to help me to effectively and elegantly get through the roadblocks I had been facing. Our work together gave me tools to break through my impasse and I am delighted with the results.
I am a senior executive at various hospitals located in Ontario. I entered into a professional coaching program with Jean to overcome some career challenges and determine the next steps in my professional path.
Through the ongoing efforts with Jean, I gained the courage to articulate my goals to myself as well as my superiors. Jean was kind, yet tenacious in directing my thoughts into constructive goals. She was able to help me use strategies to improve my professional position within my organizations and help me find personal fulfillment!
Before working with Jean, I was really anxious about what retirement was going to look like for me.
During those early sessions, I was able to articulate what retirement meant for me, what I needed to do to find out exactly where I was at both financially and emotionally, and thinking about what was going to happen after I retire.
Jean was key in keeping me focused. I will always remember her saying "If tomorrow is the first day of your retirement - what are you going to do"? I was able to list off about 5 things right away and suddenly realized that this was something to look forward to, not to fear. As a direct result of working with her, I am at a place where I can't wait to retire because I now know and understand my options.
Jean helped me through my own personal journey of change when I found myself feeling stuck, overwhelmed, unclear, unmotivated, and lacking the confidence to move forward.
The most successful takeaway with Jean was that she helped me realize why I kept stopping, quitting, stalling, and not reaching my goals. She taught me how to reach my goals and to keep growing and pushing through obstacles even in the face of fear.
Working with Jean has helped me see that I am capable of creating a great future and career using the passion I already have.
Before working with Jean it felt like I had lost my identity and confidence. I had built up a protective wall, living separately from myself totally overwhelmed with life.
Jean's coaching gave me the tools to be able to be still, breathe, and be able to love myself, bringing balance to my life. With the tools that Jean helped me develop I now can empty my mind of the clutter, have feelings of peace and joy, and see the future in a new light.
