You're not satisfied with your current path and career trajectory and want to make a change. There could be many drivers and there are many ways you could go. We will help you reflect on your ideal vision, your core strengths and values, your available resources and the obstacles in your way. We will explore your options and help you develop strategies and an action plan to make the changes you want, while building your networks and helping you stay on track.
Becoming an entrepreneur often involves a steep learning curve, which can be challenging for people at the top of their profession who are used to knowing what they are doing. A founder must wear all the hats (CEO, CFO, CMO, Head of Sales etc) and some of these activities may be new. We will help you build the right strategies, leverage skills and resources, overcome obstacles and self doubts, and keep going to make your new business a success.
You are interested in personal growth and self development. You've made some progress on your own and are interested in going further. We will use coaching techniques backed by positive psychology and neuroscience research to help you deepen your self-awareness around your strengths, values and blind spots, develop key leadership skills and emotional intelligence, and help you develop new habits that support your ongoing transformation.
I first started working with Emily when I was in the midst of a major life transition that involved a career pivot and a transatlantic move. At the time I was juggling so much change – at all levels of my life – and running on fumes. My biggest issue at the time was a lack of clarity and space to figure out what "I" wanted and needed. In the past I have always used available resources to support me in navigating new challenges in specific areas of my life – business coaching, mentors and parenting groups. But these support groups focus on one facet of my life and didn't allow me to explore life's changes through the lens of serving me holistically. Emily is kind, empathetic, intelligent and self-aware. She manages to balance humor and light-hearteness with soulful self exploration and clear action plans. Emily encourages self-reflection through her inquisitive nudges which helped me see situations from a different perspective.I always felt empowered and positive after our sessions. One aspect I found particularly helpful in our sessions was Emily's wide and deep repertoire of coaching tools and techniques that she shared with me to help deepen our conversations and continue the exploration after our calls. After working with Emily I feel I am now better equipped to navigate life and career challenges with clarity, confidence and an open mind. Working with Emily has given me strategies that I can apply in all walks of life making my coaching with her invaluable to me now and in the future. I would highly recommend Emily for coaching. If she has workshops in the future, I'll be first to sign up!Julia Wingent: Founder
Before working with Emily, I was on the verge of quitting my job, but scared to do so; I was lacking confidence, and I’d lost sight of my career accomplishments. My hatred toward my job was impacting every aspect of my life and family. My biggest issues were not feeling appreciated, and not doing work that was meaningful to me. Emily has helped me take back control of my career. She has coached me to be present, engaged and proactive, and she has guided me in building a roadmap toward my ideal job. Since working with Emily, I’ve made great strides in aligning my work more closely with my values, including taking on a work assignment outside of my current function in an area that interests me. She has helped to restore my confidence in my capabilities and skillsets, and she has encouraged me to reconnect with former networks/mentors so that I continue to have support in pursuing a more meaningful and rewarding career. Emily is a fantastic career coach. She is supportive, knowledgeable, empathetic, and compassionate, so it was easy to build a trusting relationship with her right from our first meeting. Throughout our coaching sessions, she continuously challenged my attitudes and perspectives, encouraged a positive mindset, and held me accountable for my actions and goals. She asked thought provoking questions which helped me view my career challenges in different ways, and she provided me with resources and tools to continue my self-awareness journey outside of our sessions. My mindset toward my career has changed for the better since working with Emily, so I would definitely recommend her as a career coach.Katie Milford
Before working with Emily I felt particularly unsettled in my current situation as a recent expat from England. I was facing great uncertainty regarding my move to the US and my career. Working with Emily gave me a much greater focus and also, and most importantly, a more positive outlook to my current situation. Emily helped me see my situation in a very different light, and helped me to navigate my way around some very difficult decisions and life changes. Emily helped me to come to decisions in my own time and on my own terms, but her empathy and experience was an invaluable tool for me and I shall remember some of the coping skills and strategies she gave me for a long time to come. I feel not only Emily coached me in my current situation, but also gave me a toolkit to use going forward in my life and career. Coaching sessions with Emily were like a breath of fresh air. Emily is approachable, personable and very knowledgeable on coaching and helping people to make decisions and life changes. I looked forward to my sessions with Emily every week and I never felt pressured into changing or taking action I wasn't ready to do yet. Emily has completely changed my personal perspective on my current situation and made a real difference to my outlook. I cannot recommend her highly enough.Vanessa Beeney
