Brian is in his late twenties and works in the insurance industry. He considered himself to be making valuable contributions to his firm, but was discouraged to see others being offered the promotions that he had been aiming for. When he came to coaching, he had given up any hope that he had a future in this company. Coaching provided the setting for him to take an objective look at himself and to examine his presentation and work ethic. No longer able to make excuses to himself or blame others, he committed to the process of examining his strengths and weaknesses and to presenting his best self in a dignified, engaging manner. Within a matter of months, Brian was able to demonstrate the abilities he had all along in a manner that was compelling and readily recognized. Shortly afterwards, he was pleased to report that he was offered a sizeable salary increase and promotion.

Marie is an attorney in a prestigious law firm in Boston. Highly motivated to advance her career, she had taken on increasingly more demanding assignments. Although she believed she was well-respected, she was convinced that her team was taking advantage of her. Never one to comfortably deal with confrontation, Marie came to coaching initially for support in learning how to effectively assert herself. After she began to address her original concerns, she shifted her focus to look at the bigger picture. Were the sacrifices necessary to make partner in her firm really worth the price she was paying? After a heart-felt assessment of her values and priorities, she discovered that the career goal she had spent so many years striving for would not be fulfilling long term. Marie surprised herself when she discovered that she could, in fact, assert herself quite well when she was crystal clear on the direction she needed to take. The coaching was now focused on a path to apply her skills to a related industry with a position that would enable her to have more balance in her life.

David is the Senior Vice President of Information Technology at a Fortune 500 company. He was referred for coaching by senior management after several complaints had been lodged against him. Recognizing that his position was potentially in jeopardy, David committed to the serious process of looking at his autocratic management style and reflecting upon the effect that he had on subordinates. He now understands that he can be judgmental and, at times, inflexible. Upon further reflection, he determined that he came on too strong, both to mask his insecurities and to present himself as knowledgeable and confident. The coaching process helped him gain more assurance in his leadership capabilities, and within a relatively short period of time he was able to develop a more relaxed demeanor that commanded respect and camaraderie.

"I found myself overwhelmed by the pressures of a high-paying, but demanding and unfulfilling position that did not allow me to enjoy my family or find time for myself. Coaching with Linda proved to be eye-opening. I found her to be dedicated and very supportive, even as she challenged me with tough questions. With her encouragement, I was able to make significant career changes that gave me my life back!!! "
