STEPPING INTO CONFIDENCE WHILE CREATING A NEW VENTURE AND BALANCING MOTHERHOOD

I am starting off to a strong 2019 after going through an insightful coaching program with Charise Naifeh of Live, Grow, Bloom! If you’re looking to clarify your career goals and overcome obstacles that may be in your way, I highly recommend this program.

FINDING FULFILLMENT AND BALANCE WHILE TAKING ACTION TO FIND A NEW JOB

I was in a difficult work situation when fate intervened and I met Charise. Her thought model approach was instrumental in allowing me to change my view of the situation, giving me the power to take control over my thoughts and feelings instead of feeling like events were happening to me.

With her assistance, I am now focused on finding “the right next job” and have an action plan to do so. I am also more content in my current work situation, which lets me feel like I have the time to locate a job that maintains my desired work/life balance.  Plus, I’ve applied her thought model approach to non-career related issues with the same positive results.  I highly recommend Charise!

DISCERNING CAREER GOALS AND NEXT STEPS WHILE MAKING TIME FOR CREATIVITY AND SELF-CARE

The thing that stands out the most from my work with Charise is just how incredibly efficient it was!  I left every session with what felt like a groundbreaking revelation that has allowed me to shift my life in more positive, productive and joyful directions. She helped me unpack and re-write the core beliefs and habits that I have been bumping up against as long as I can remember.

FINDING A NEW JOB AND CREATING BALANCE AS A WORKING MOM

In just a few sessions with Charise, I started to see transformation! Charise helped me define clear goals – getting back to work being one of them – and implement ways to make these happen! I knew I was lacking focus and organization as a mom of 4 year old twins.  She provided practical tools that helped me find time and focus almost immediately. In fact, applying these tools, I was able to find a new position and return to work at a job that I really enjoy! Her gracious nature and relevant analogies made it so easy to digest and implement these tools and I know they will stick with me for life. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from Charise and highly recommend her as a coach and guide!

PLANNING NEXT STEPS FOR A MID-CAREER CHANGE WHILE BALANCING WORK AND FAMILY DEMANDS

Working with Charise gave me a safe place to explore a career change.  In a short time we were able to explore all possible ideas of optional careers, then work to narrow down a few possible ones, and then execute a plan of next steps to go after my dream job.  Charise has a way of being extremely compassionate and warm while still keeping me moving forward and accountable on my next steps and goals to put my new career within reach!

DISCERNING NEXT STEPS AND CAREER GOALS WHILE MAKING TIME FOR CREATIVITY AS A NEW MOM

I was stuck in a rut, feeling rudderless and paralyzed.  From the first session, Charise helped me see beyond my self-doubt. I ended the program with a personalized plan and defined goals that are guiding me toward what I want to accomplish. 

Charise used her intelligence, instincts, communication skills, and professional expertise to help me overcome setbacks, stay focused, and pin down what I wanted to work on.

If you have ever been part of a sports team, you know a good coach does more than outline how a game is won.  A good coach guides, inspires, and empowers their athletes.  Just as in sport, you get out of coaching what you put into it.  Charise is helping me get the most out of my efforts with her inspired coaching.
