Your Mind - Your Breakthrough
I take no credit for my clients' breakthroughs. It is they who do the hard work and achieve the results. I am however, grateful for my intuition as it is this which guides me to delve further to deeply understand their true objectives, empathise with their challenges and see their full potential.
Results are reliant on commitment, chemistry, communication and trust in equal measure. There is no guarantee or recipe for this; either it works or it doesn't. I am proud of the people I work with, they provide inspiration, leadership, insight and innovation to me and to their cohorts. I thank you.
I approached Claudine originally as my division was embarking on a major change in direction which looked as though we'd be merging with another. I could see that throughout this I would have to be making some difficult decisions about staffing, have to lead through turmoil and be the spokesperson communicating the changes to come.
Asides from this personally I wasn't sure if these were changes I wanted to stick around for, I wasn't sure if I was up to the challenge and I hated the idea of being the messenger. I was frightened, isolated and had to 'tow the company line' - There was no one I could talk to about my concerns.
Claudine's approach to coaching was compassionate and confidence inspiring. We retraced the steps to where my insecurities came from and examined each in turn - it was through this that I was able to learn the lessons I missed the first time round. Claudine's past experience of mergers and acquisitions, leadership and HR came through in her coaching which enabled me to see I had options.
The greatest gift she awarded me was the confidence to be me, that I had everything I needed to make a success of the transition I just needed to learn how to apply all the skills and techniques I had to this very new, alien and unwelcome circumstance.
As it turns out I began to see the opportunities this change presented me with and I am glad I did. I am now the proud leader of a committed happy team that is making a real difference to the business and the pharmaceuticals industry.
Claudine has been invaluable in my search to find the right landing spot as I pivot careers. She is part strategist, part thought provoker, and part cheerleader. And she has a masterful knack for knowing when to invoke these various skills to bring out a clarity of purpose and desire that is often hard to pinpoint on your own. She has a way of repackaging your own, sometimes confusing, thoughts in a way that adds meaningful direction. I could go on and on with superlatives, but suffice it to say that if you are looking for someone to confide in and learn from about yourself, your professional skills, your career ambitions, and your potential, look no further than Claudine.
Claudine is an incredibly talented, natural coach. Her values-centered guidance challenged me to think beyond just “the job search” and focus more on finding a career that would capitalize on my passions and strengths. Her knowledge of so many industries and her willingness to connect me to her network were particularly valuable. She has not only been an amazing coach but also a caring mentor, and the strategies and lessons she has provided have inspired and motivated me to live a life aligned with my values and passions. Claudine is truly one-of-a-kind, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an intuitive, sincere, and deeply passionate coach.
Claudine’s Leadership programme was by far the most powerful and moving course I have ever attended in my entire professional career. Her vision and foresight has helped me deal with many difficult situations both personally and professionally.
What a tremendous coach. Claudine has a very unique and powerful style which has helped me to fix my objectives and build a very profitable online business. She pushed me to reach my full potential! I have been motivated and inspired, and have learned powerful tools for my business and personal life. I feel the happiest in my entire life.
What I’ve gained is bigger than words. My perception of myself, of my life, of the world, and of my place in this world is today totally different from what it was 4 months ago. My individualistic approach to leadership has moved to a more humanistic one. The effect on my work has been significant and sustained.
Claudine is a fantastic coach who gets to the core of the issues excellently. She helped me to take drastic steps (they were needed!), which brought me a massive shift in my business and my family life. Now, I work less, earn double that I used to and have more time for my kids. What I like about Claudine is that she can be straightforward if needed and when necessary. She is not afraid to ask the difficult (fundamental) questions when the situation calls for them. An outstanding return on investment!
I entered coaching with a fair number of preconceived expectations and cynicism. As a Lawyer I am ever conscious that time out for 'me' has to deliver a return on investment. That said I was so lost and jaded something had to shift - coaching was a bit of a last resort.
However, I am now a convert - and I wish I'd done this years ago. In short I have sought out opportunities within the firm to add value aligned to my passions and am gaining more and more enthusiasm and motivation developing and mentoring our new talent; I've stopped being wonder woman and working to prove 'god only knows' what point and now spend more quality time with my family and young children.
I've learnt to delegate and set boundaries without compromising respect or relationships.
I am, if anything, more successful. My billings have increased yet I feel as though I've more time, more energy and a renewed sense of purpose. Claudine has delivered ROI quantitatively and qualitatively - as she promised she would!
I highly recommend coaching and I highly recommend Claudine.
