What changes are you noticing as a result of coaching?

I am no longer simply doing my tasks, attending meetings, working towards deadlines.  I notice the skills I use, the connections I'm creating, and the decisions I make, further my organization and also to develop new areas of expertise for me.  John's coaching has amped up my awareness of my abilities as well as areas I can improve upon without a single review is necessary.

What did you like most about working with Paradigm Coaching? 

Our original contract said I could expect undivided attention to my growth, resources, and tools, and to support me and hold me accountable.  John exceeded those expectations with his genuine assistance, including giving me feedback on a cover letter and coaching me on how to best present my true self in an interview. Line by line, he went through the job requirements and asked me to tell him how I filled those requirements so that I would have relevant examples for my interview.   I truly felt John was an advocate for me. He helped me see my skills in a new light and find ways to use those in a career that fits my skills and my values.

Did you have any hesitations about starting coaching?

 I have reservations about talking to people about my personal self in general.   However,  John is a fantastic listener.  He hears the ideas behind the words and helps articulate them to fit what I'm trying to say.  He is a professional and experienced coach. He helps me make goals and plans that work for me, not what other people may expect or what "the book" says.  He helped me create specific goals focusing on what I needed at that point in my life.

Would you recommend Paradigm Coaching to others?  Why or why not?

For anyone who wonders if they are in the right field, or who may know for certain they are not, I would highly recommend working with John.  If your natural abilities and values are being utilized in your field, but you are bored, John can help discern that and uncover ways to make your work meaningful again.  If you wish to explore other areas, John has an effective and enticing way to encourage you to find your best career self.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

John is incredibly personable.  I didn't have a lot of experience with a coaching,  but John made it feel like he was close and trusted colleague working on a very important and meaningful project with me.  I was motivated to work on the suggestions he presented and the entire experience was extremely rewarding.
