What Our Clients are Saying

The whole process has been a tremendous confidence booster for me

“The one on one coaching sessions with Christine have helped me to take a step outside of my current responsibilities and make a clear minded assessment of where I am now in my career journey, in order to open my mind to all of the available possibilities in the future, based on my specific leadership strengths and talents.

Going through the whole process has been a tremendous confidence booster for me and it shows in my daily work life and personal life as well.”

Christine’s rare combination of skills makes her extremely effective.

“I had the pleasure of working with Christine for over 3 yrs in my role as CIO for a large Animal Nutrition company. During these 3 yrs Christine has proven to be instrumental in some of the challenging changes we had to pursue. The by far most challenging one, was the integration of an acquisition and at the same time moving the infrastructure part of the IT function to an outsourcing partner.

This was about 5000 technology users over 21 countries at some 50 locations in a non-standardized IT environment. The staff impacted, including contractors were around 80 people. The project was quoted fixed price and fixed time and soon proved to be highly underestimated by the partner. Without Christine’s dedication and multi facet skills, both technically, managerial as well as interpersonal, the project would have stranded.

Thru Christine’s dedication, positive mindset and focus on critical path, she was able to keep staff engaged till the end and our partner on point to finish the project at least in a way business disruption was minimized. Although keeping all stakeholders on point and accountable, I yet have to come across a project staff or stakeholder who hasn’t been extremely appreciative about Christine pivotal role in finalizing the project. Even our partner, who has been pushed hardest acknowledged Christine’s value add until the end.

Christine has a rare combination of skills making her extremely effective in change programs. Some of these skills are: high emotional intelligence, able to quickly build highly trusting relationships cross cultural boundaries, strength to lead people through transformational change, team building (creating a cohesive team, empower and engage a team to accomplish challenging goals), building high engagement in challenging times, an achiever (getting things done but in a way that holds a team high), leading large teams of globally dispersed highly technical people, strong business and financial acumen and strong relationship with third party managed services vendor.”

Christine was a big help to me during my period of transition.

“A big help to me during my period of transition. I am a tough person to get talking about myself and you have a really good way of getting things out of me. One thing I particularly liked about your style was that you were not afraid of a “brief silence”. This really forced me to talk through some issues, when perhaps I would have otherwise not.”

Christine helped me flush out my goals in alignment with my core values.

“You really have a very calming aura about you that I really admire. Generally speaking I’m pretty slow to open up to people, but with you it’s like I’ve known you for years. I think that is truly a gift. Every time I leave a session I have a big smile on my face.”

“My overall outlook on a lot of things has changed since I began to work with Christine. I’ve never felt more comfortable about who I am and the values I have…Christine helped me flush out my goals in alignment with my core values and I’m making great strides towards achieving them.”

I left the session with clarity and next steps.

“I was at a point in my life when I felt overwhelmed and clouded by uncertainties, tough choices and demanding priorities. You didn’t solve my problems but listened and guided me to explore solutions that I already had inside me and taught me a powerful exercise I can reuse to help me understand the feelings of my options. So I left the session with clarity and realistic next steps. I will continue to recommend your coaching because of your genuineness, professionalism, and ability to guide to decouple complexity into measurable, attainable goals.”

–Information Architect, State of MN, Minneapolis, MNa

Christine gave me a whole new perspective.

“I’m quite glad to have been paired with you at the Career Center because your encouragement boosted my confidence to just “be myself” at the career fair yesterday. I truly felt genuine as I chatted with people, and allowed myself to feel comfortable treating the day in a more exploratory manner than seeking a specific something. I also appreciated you steering me towards focusing on my passions, especially with the pieces of pie model. You gave me a whole new perspective that was especially useful at that moment in time.”

I feel grateful to have Christine in my life as my coach”
