Why did you hire Kristin as your coach?
I hired Kristin because I needed help figuring out a career change. I was confused, stressed out and worn down. My finance suggested I seek help from a coach. I was resistant at first and it took me a few months of feeling down before I finally decided to google life coaches and found Kristin's website.
What were your goals and what did you want to accomplish?
My goals were to figure out what I wanted to do next. I knew I wanted to leave my job but I didn't know what I wanted in a new position.
My main goals were to:
- Find a new job that I enjoyed
- Find a balance between work and my personal life.
What are the tangible results of your coaching experience?
The biggest tangible result is transitioning into a new jow where I have found balance. I now have time for my family and friends, to plan my wedding, and give back to the community. Another tangible result is that I wear what Kristin calls a visual anchor every day to remind myself to apply some of the things that Kristin and I talked about. My visual anchor is a ring. Kristin doesn't just help you clarify and achieve your goals, she gives you ideas for how to stay committed to your goals since it's easy to get swept up by the busyness of life and forget. Now, I am constantly reminded of my top priorities and it feels great.
What are some of the intangible results of your coaching experience?
When I contacted Kristin, I thought she would help me figure out my career change. However, she has helped me with so much more. I have learned so much about myself and how that affects my decisions in life. I am so much happier because I am consistently implementing the techniques Kristin has shared with me. Balance and joy are top priorities in muy life and coaching has given me the tools to make that possible.
What are Kristin's strength, as a coach?
She is a great listener and I never feel judged during out calls. She asks great questions that really make me dig deep. Kristin is encouraging and empowering. She is genuinely passionate about coaching and that comes across during every call.
Any additional thoughts?
I think that a lot of times when people hear life coach or career coach, they don't think that it is for them. I was one of those people since I have a hard time asking for help. However, coaching with a Kristin has been such a joy and I have grown so much. Even though I achieved my initial goals, I continue to coach with Kristin - once a month - since it's like hitting the 'reset' button for me. I love reviewing my monthly progress with her and talking about my intentions for the upcoming month. If I start to feel out of balance between work and life, my conversations with Kristin always put me back on track.
Is your coaching investment worth it to you?
My coaching investment has been invaluable. It has made such a difference in my life and I've already referred three friends and colleagues to Kristin. I cannot recommend Kristin highly enough. She is a light and she shares that light with those she coaches.
