 After only a couple coaching sessions  with Andrea I began to realize an enormous impact on my work and my  team. The coaching sessions enabled me with insights about my own  leadership and where I need to improve.

For example, when I began my six  coaching sessions with Andrea I was struggling with some core questions  about the different roles on my team, and whether it would be effective  or counterproductive to re-structure the team with some team members in  new leadership positions.

I found it extremely valuable to talk  all of this through with Andrea, where I could explore how I myself  really felt about the decision. In my conversations with Andrea, I  realized that I was focusing too much on the risks of re-structuring and  that the cost of inaction was much worse – for the broader team, for my  own role, and for my own potential as a leader.

I therefore began a dialogue with my  team and in a matter of weeks I had achieved a significant  re-structuring of my team. Within weeks I began to notice that our team  portfolios were stronger and I had more time to focus on broader  strategic initiatives for the team.

Looking back now after six months I  am absolutely confident that these decisions have been good for the  individuals and for the team, and my coaching sessions with Andrea were  the main catalyst.

Thanks again for a great coaching experience.

 I had the opportunity to attend  Andrea’s Mastermind series and it enabled me to establish clarity and  focus on my future life transition plans.

She had me at “hello”….but she really  had me captive after the second session during the Reflective exercise.  That exercise provided an “inflection point” experience that has helped  me gain focus on “My Second Act”.

I further took time to listen to  Andrea’s Second Act Podcast which gave me confidence of how others had  gone about this significant transition in their lives.

Andrea made it fun. I looked forward  to our Thursday evenings. Andrea made it “easy” through the Uber  Conference tools to be “linked” with the others and to share  information.

If “felt” like we were all together  and in one mindset. We shared heart warming stories and lots of laughs  together as well. It made a difference. One has to create space to  enable the energy around that which you dream to happen. These coaching  sessions helped create that space for me. 

Here’s to take a step forward in  developing a plan to reach what I believe to be my destiny. The word of  wisdom…Stop doing what you are doing and give your total focus and  commitment to what your destiny has called you do to…

We can’t keep doing the old,  comfortable (or in some cases not so comfortable) things and expect a  change! We can’t keep the old man/woman and still become the new  man/woman…a good thought life comes from a good self-image.

Andrea’s guidance helped me get there.

 One of the things I look for in a coach is the ability to listen.  Now, you may think that’s a pretty obvious thing to look for in a coach,  but it’s not when you consider how a coach listens, or doesn’t listen,  to what you say. Andrea’s capacity to hear what I would call, “in  between the words,” is key to not only her success, but to mine and  anybody else she coaches. It’s “in between the words” where our stories  lie and when Andrea coaches you from that perspective, magic happens,  things start to shift, and you learn to let go of what’s holding you  back.Thank you, Andrea, for listening “in between the words.”
