If asked about any ‘aha’ moments – Emily helped me to focus on executive presence, being politically savvy, creating strategic networks, client relationships, storytelling, and communication styles. She is Brilliant! She boosted my confidence and made me realize that I could achieve more. Emily leads the way forward and with each step helps unleash new potential – never considered through ‘self-discovery.’
My greatest challenges were related to my interactions with others. Emily helped me visualize how to be an active listener and to ask powerful questions. Using the ‘head, heart, and hand’ method, she helped me to connect better with others. Her coaching process on how different personality types process information helped me ‘gain buy-in’ quicker buy-in to influence those around me.
Before Emily, I was bitter and resentful about my relationship with my manager. Emily helped me resolve faulty perceptions after identifying the ‘root issues’ and highlighting the related and lingering emotional baggage. She even helped create a ‘safe space’ – for healing and helped restore conversations and a relationship with my manager – this time with the necessary assured ‘self-confidence, emotional agility, and leadership voice.
