Barbra was an excellent career coach. I was able to have conversations with her about my career that were much more productive than with any mentors or co-workers in the past. She helped me to make an action plan to achieve a specific career goal. She was very insightful and encouraging, and gave me a renewed confidence in my skills and talents. I would recommend her to anyone looking for career coaching.
Barbra was a calm and super-effective sounding board for my classic work life dilemma - should I continue to attempt to move upwards at work or adjust the balance and be happy with what felt like the slow lane? Barbra got me to work hard and I wouldn't say it was easy, but I emerged a few months later with an entirely unexpected sense of peace and a deeper understanding of what I really wanted. I warmly recommend her.
As a coach, Barbra has a very calm and easy to talk to manner which enabled me to explore and challenge myself in our sessions across a variety of topics. Barbra is naturally compassionate and understanding and has a great way of asking questions that help to better understand how your mind works - so she can tailor her coaching approach to suit how you think and process information. I fully recommend Barbra as a coach!
