What have I done in the area of personal and professional development that my clients have found valuable?
I have applied my interests and skills by helping adolescents, counseling provided on two initiatives, YearUp & McKinsey’s Generations. The 22+ years of being associated with three state colleges across two states gave me an incredibly broad experience of helping multigenerational groups. Working with community groups around the state of New Jersey, I have received two Senate Citations from two congressional districts. The work I did as a mortgage banker for some 13+ years has provided me with a perspective on how we interpret one of the most important actions we go through. This has brought me to where I am today as a counselor and coach.
I have volunteered for and with many national, state and local organizations. I believe this has been a crucial part of finding out about myself. It has been real.
The ability to build meaningful relationships is evidenced by the person or persons with whom you are engaging and stated from their voice, their perspective.
What am I currently doing for the benefit of business partners, clients and customers alike?
We all see value in what we do. The true test, what value I do is found in the feedback of how my clients have used these methodologies. By sharing with others various resources and approaches to improve another personal and professional life is probably the height of my life… Being invited to work with some of the largest firms in their respective industries, it is the client’s anecdotal comments of how they achieved breakthrough insights on issues we discussed that make the journey worth the effort to understand their needs.
Creating programs asked for by clients has led me to create 4 online courses. I coached a Toastmasters Corporate account, mentored 3 colleagues for my PMI New Jersey Chapter and Coached for the SBA – SCORE Northeastern New Jersey Chapter. I went back to school and have secured three certificates in Solution Focused Brief Therapy that has helped me move into my third profession and deliver the kind of support that will help people Manage Life’s Changes.
Where am I going? Moving forward with a flexible perspective allows me to engage openly with the opportunities that present themselves.
As we move through life’s experiences we find that the meaning of one experience is very different from one person to another. Being willing to learn about yourself permits you to bring forth latent capabilities, skills and desires that have laid dormant. Your life has just begun if you look at each experience as an opportunity to grow. My underlying mission is to galvanize the intellectual curiosity of those that seek meaning from their lives, by managing the changes on purpose.
Helping to create opportunities for others to grow is a hallmark of self-awareness while understanding how to work with others on their own terms. I invite you to read what others say about my work.
