Therese, Enerprise Applications Manager

I didn't know what coaching was before working with Alec. After two sessions . . . I was fortunate to be interviewed for a new job and I nailed the interviews! Seeking a new job wasn't even the plan for our coaching, but career coaching was.

 

The exercises in our first 2 sessions helped me to take stock of my career history, future objectives and find a confidence that was hiding inside me. The timing of the interviews was crazy, and Alec didn't even know about them until they were done and an offer was in hand! I love that he helped me in an area that neither of us even planned on!

 

The skills I learned with Alec helped me to both interview well and have the confidence to step into something new. Alec is an amazing coach and is an incredible influence and I consider him my permanent Yoda.

Before starting with Alec, my career felt like it was being planned out for me without my input. I wasn’t sure what I really wanted or if I even had [the] skills to move to different areas or teams within or outside of my current field. Alec helped me to realize that I have a wealth of 'hard skills', but my 'soft skills' are equally--if not more--important, and pivoting is an option for me, as you can’t take back the experience I have.

 

Alec’s compassionate yet direct coaching has given me [the] confidence to move forward with more drive and I have realized I have more to offer than I knew. I highly recommend working with him if you are feeling stuck at work or want to level up.

Callie, Manager in Oil & Gas

When I started working with Alec, I had just made a career change that landed me a job I was excited about but not quite prepared for. I didn’t know what to expect with coaching but was looking for a way to grow into my new role.

 

Meeting with Alec was one incredibly important step I took to creat[e] a better and more fulfilling career for myself. He asks thoughtful questions that really made me listen to myself, pay attention, and fully engage with who I am and who I want to be.

 

The day after our first few sessions I already saw that I had made meaningful steps towards personal growth and felt more prepared for my new career. I was satisfied with my life choices and career before coaching with Alec, but he has helped me grow in a new direction and taught me to not accept good, reach for great.

 

Coaching has made me more confident in myself and my decisions, and it has given me the tools to be a stronger leader.

I didn’t know what to expect when I first began my sessions with Alec. Over the past few months, I have been pleasantly surprised by how impactful coaching can be in how I approach problems and what actions I take.

 

. . . Alec has provided a valuable outsider perspective that made me take more direct action than otherwise. In all cases, this boldness served me well. In the end, I was the one that took action, he merely provided an outsider’s perspective that I found immensely valuable.

 

I recommend a life coach to anyone seeking to improve, and I recommend Alec specifically to those looking for patient and wise advice.

Michelle, Small Business Owner

Alec has been instrumental in helping me find clarity in many aspects of my life. Working to figure out my next career move has brought to light other issues that are deeper than simply selecting a new path forward, but play a substantial part in the search and choice of a new career. His questions have prompted me to respond with what I believe to be the answer, but he eventually leads me to the real answer and what really lies beneath it all.

 

Although I consider myself an articulate and self-aware person, Alec has the ability to infer what I am really trying to verbalize to foster clarity and a clearer understanding of what is holding me back. Working with Alec has emboldened me to organize and prioritize what is most important to me as part of my career change. He has been able to observe and distinguish these things while allowing me the time to speak, explore more thoughts, and reach conclusions on, what appears to be, my own. He then utilizes these discoveries to further the work we are doing together.

 

I’ve made actionable moves that have opened up new doors and opportunities thanks to working with Alec.

Working with Alec has allowed me to get to know myself better, identify what are my core values and how to grow personally from there. Alec is a very empathetic coach. He invested time in understanding at what point I was in my life and what I needed to keep growing. He asks really probing and insightful questions that invite me to reflect. Also, he really invests in listening and understanding my stories, and helps me identify the key themes in them.

Matt B., Instutitional Advisor

Alec is incredibly talented at helping empower you to self-discover the right answers you're seeking. He is an active listener and has helped me navigate some very impactful complex decisions in my life and career.

 

One of the most impactful exercises we did was the values exercise. It helped me gain clarity when faced with very complex challenges and I believe will ultimately help me be a better leader to others, and to confidently live a more fulfilled life. I came to Alec contemplating a major career change and to put more focus and attention on my personal life. I’ve been amazed and grateful for the results he has helped me achieve and the advice he has given.

 

I truly value my time with Alec and it’s worth every penny!
