Nadia

Having had a lot of experience and specializing in understanding the struggle Gen Y students face when they go to college, it is evident that they have the expectation they should know what they want to do for the rest of their lives. The confusion and fear to decide alone can become almost paralyzing.

Nadia, like many students entering college, was quite frazzled when thinking about choosing a major and a career. She thought she was the only one who was struggling to make that decision. We started working together and first dispelled the myths of having to decide the rest of your life at 18 years old. Through coaching she began to realize that confusion is normal at this age, she didn’t even know who she was as a person yet; how could she know how to make such major decisions for her life?

We created a plan with logical steps for her to take, e.g., career assessments, research activities, interacting with professionals in various career arenas, talking with professors, etc. We met for approximately 3 months, at the end of which time Nadia had this to say “I now have a good feel for the career that best suits me and my personal beliefs, values and skills. Career coaching with Peggy helped me to overcome my fear of never finding that ‘perfect’ fit.

Kristen

Kristen was in her late 20’s, frozen in her job search, lacked confidence, didn’t know how to present herself, and she had no direction. She was feeling depressed, unmotivated and lost. During our 3 month coaching engagement, she got her confidence back and began to present herself in a professional manner. With a reorganized resume reflecting her accomplishments we were able to demonstrate her strengths in creativity and marketing. She landed a position as a marketing manager.

Katelyn

Engaging in multi listening and hearing what is not being said in terms of passion purpose and identifying the heart piece the client really wants to focus on is key.

Katelyn had been hired right out of school and was in a very productive job that paid good money. Yet, she was very unhappy and just knew there was more for her in her life and career. In the coaching partnership, we went into depth around what could be done to expand her creative possibilities into this area of her life. We focused on who she wanted to be and how the process of creativity was closely aligned with her heartfelt values.

She discovered her passion was in helping others and that she loved academia. She transitioned from the corporate world into a graduate program that put her in a career in higher education working with students.
