Becoming More Balanced
As a professional woman in today’s work environment, I’ve struggled to maintain work/life balance. I have a demanding career, two kids involved in many activities and a husband who also has high career demands. I felt like I was juggling many balls in the air and dropping most of them which in turn left me feeling like I was failing as a mother, wife and employee. Tabby coached me over a three-month period and I have had a transformational experience as she has challenged me to think differently. I am now more planful of my activities and work projects, I am more willing to say no to others when I don’t have capacity, and I now realize that sometimes I just cannot do it all and that is okay! While I’m still working on my balance, I’ve seen successes and it’s getting easier to say no. Tabby has been a life saver for my career and family life. (My husband can even tell that I’m much more at ease.) Tabby is very professional and compassionate and I’ve enjoyed my experience working with her.
Finding the Solutions Within
Life is about transitions and bridging the gaps. I was familiar with working with a coach solely in regards to endurance sports and was interested in partnering with a life coach. I realized through the individual coaching sessions that the solutions to my life's challenges were within me. Tabby's coaching style is insightful, in depth and a true eye opener. Tabby values a safe environment where I was able to share my setbacks and obstacles as well as my biggest dreams. I also participated in group coaching sessions which brought home the need for sisterhood and how important building your support network is when you are working towards your dreams. Tabby has become a partner in helping me achieve my professional and personal goals, I achieved the goals I had set up at the beginning of the sessions, and I attribute many of my current successes to Tabby's coaching. I look forward to continuing to partner with Tabby for the upcoming new year.
Gave me confidence
I got a promotion at work! I'm now the Training Manager. Our chats this summer really helped me clarify my vision and gave me the confidence to assert myself more (which I think played a big role in getting this promotion). So, yeah--YOU ROCK! Thanks again for all you've done for me!
Searching for Meaning
I was on the search for a new job, maybe even a new career path....The experience was SO much more than I expected it to be. Tabby not only helped me with defining my Life Purpose and creating my Vision board, she also helped me through a difficult time in my career. I looked forward to my time with her every week! The best part about coaching is, with Tabby’s guidance, you work through things yourself. It’s not about her giving advice or personal opinions, but asking the right questions to clarify and work through what you’re discussing. I loved my time with Tabby and you will too!
Investing in Myself
I had never worked with a coach before and really didn’t know what to expect. My experience with Tabby was much better than I imagined! With her guiding questions and thought provoking exercises, Tabby encouraged me to think about things differently...things that I was not taking the time to think about at all. Through our regular sessions, Tabby served as a source of encouragement but also held me accountable to do the work. Most importantly, she was a sounding board who constantly reminded me that it’s not only okay to focus on myself, it’s a necessity. As a result of my sessions with Tabby, I have gained clarity about my personal and professional life. I feel like I now have a road map to help me reach my goals. And I have learned to value myself and my time in a way that I was not doing before. The coaching experience with Tabby has been one of the best things I have ever done for myself!
One client was searching for his next career step. We worked to clarify his values, strengths, passions, and interests. Once clear on these, he not only made the decision about what that next step would be, but he also took immediate action to make his dreams a reality. "You truly helped me formulate a solid plan for my life...I’m sure you will hear from me again soon as my business continues to grow and I need guidance."
Helped me integrate my values
Working with Tabby over the course of nine months has been beneficial in ways that continue to surprise me. A breakthrough point occurred around session four when I learned to narrow my focus and develop a daily practice. In my final session we discussed what I might still be missing to continue on a journey of meaning and purpose. Tabby shared her experience with personal values. She then gently directed me to look at the values I claimed earlier in the coaching process. I look forward to moving along with renewed purpose because of the acknowledgement of my values.
Opening to New Ways of Thinking
I recently attended a Journal Writing for Self Exploration and Self Growth with Tabby. It was amazing, refreshing, and eye opening! I highly recommend going to these and speaking with Tabby. She recommended a few books that would help me along my journey. I really liked how she gave prompts to help with writing and opening our minds to thinking outside of the box. It was a wonderful experience!
Finding the Next Steps
I recently met one on one with Tabby. She was great at truly listening to what I had to say but then asking thought provoking questions that helped to give me guidance. I feel like I have the next steps I need on my path towards change. Tabby is truly amazing.
