Creating your ideal life or career is a series of goals you'll need to clarify and accomplish. Reaching those goals will likely challenge you to grow and develop along the way. It's just like climbing a mountain. First, you have to believe you can reach the summit. Then, begin training and mapping out your plan to get there. Here's the truth: It's not always easy and sometimes it's tempting to turn back or give up.
Ideas and inspiration are everywhere! You can learn how to 'climb your mountain' (reach your goals) on podcasts, in seminars, or reading books. Sometimes, that's all you need! However, you might find yourself getting excited looking at the mountain or talking about it but not actually climbing it. This is when a coach can help. Be honest and ask yourself if you've been merely dreaming about your goals or digging in and taking steps forward with them.
"Kristin was the third coach I had a sample session with, but the outcome of our session was completely different than the first two. If I had to assign a value to Kristin's coaching, it would be priceless. Yes, she inspired, coached, and guided me with my start-up, but she did something much bigger--she gave me my life back. She helped me create and execute a life strategy that allowed me to focus on my number one goal...my family. I have created a life where I am with my amazing wife and kids everyday, while living my dream. How do I put a value on that? "
Hello! I'm Kristin Taliaferro, a career coach and life coach with 20 years of experience plus expertise as a former executive recruiter. My superpower is the ability to get to the 'root of the matter' right away in a direct, warm and inspiring way!
I am honored to be an MCC, Master Certified Coach, awarded to the top 1% of coaches worldwide by the International Coach Federation.
You can expect faster results than working with most other coaches - saving you time, frustration, and money.
When I coach you, I'll deeply listen and track what you're saying to ensure it aligns with your personal and professional goals. Then, I'll ask intelligent questions that push you into a higher level of thinking and acting.
Brainstorming is also included, because knowing what you want and the best step forward isn't always obvious at first! My coaching style provides the inspiration, clarity, and structure to keep going - no matter what gets in your way.SCHEDULE A SAMPLE SESSION
"I wanted less stress and a dream job. I also wanted to travel the world. I heard about Kristin from one of my clients and I hired her since I immediately connected with her and knew she was someone I would listen to. Kristin coached me to create my dream job, which enabled me to travel the world. For 6.5 months I worked for a famous 'Motivational Guru' as his traveling assistant. "
