“I came to Kim because I was dissatisfied in my current job and I needed help defining what options I might have going forward. While I had been in my past position for decades, I had successfully made the switch to another organization yet I wasn’t satisfied with my role or my title.
Within our first conversation, Kim helped me pinpoint and articulate my areas of concern. She had me consider opportunities for process improvement and additional autonomy – key areas that were important to me, but I had been unable to clearly state, even to myself. Her suggested questions for my consideration were reasonable, rational, and helped me to find my comfort zone. She worked with me to develop a plan and a strategy to ask for a title change. She was flexible and listened when I became anxious about standing up for myself. She helped me see that even if the initial answer was “no” it would give me information and answers that I could build on to try again or to consider my options with the organization. She helped me see the situation from an objective point of view and to consider my value to the organization. She gave me courage to ask for what I wanted and what I deserved. In every interaction with Kim I felt safe and secure. I knew that she had my best interests at heart. She was encouraging and supportive and always open to listen and to flex if I needed to take a breath and pause in my plan development.
The good news is that I took that step and asked for the change …and I got it! Kim was as excited as I was about the change. Honestly, I could not have accomplished what I did without her very wise and insightful assistance. It has been a joy working with Kim and I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to her again. I also highly recommend her as a coach. She is a gifted professional.” ~ Joan C., Nonprofit Leader, Washington, D.C.
