Certified Career & Life Coach
Forbes Coaches Council
IT Consultant, Msc, EdS, PMP
When I look back at my first experiences in corporate jobs, I see a smart and educated young woman—eager to succeed and quick to learn—who didn’t have the soft skills or roadmap I needed to successfully navigate a male dominated IT industry.
I fumbled my way through years of promotions, taking whatever was given to me then learning through trial and error how to negotiate and create win-win experiences. It was a struggle that I knew (even then) didn’t need to be so hard. I eventually learned the keys to being a successful professional woman who is control of her career and earning potential. I became an active participant in my growth.
Here's what I learned:
Seek help in all aspects your life because ...
Mental blocks hinder your performance and ultimately diminish your success
To drive success, you have to drive performance
To drive performance, you have to acknowledge, take responsibility, and change your actions
To drive your career, you have to be at the wheel
After years of mentoring and coaching high achieving and highly qualified women—helping them find their voice, find their confidence, define their next career move, and negotiate for more rewarding roles—I’ve created a way to help many more women succeed.
The need for mentoring and coaching never ends even when you are at the top. I'm on a mission to bring high achieving women together and curate the tools, insights, and support (all in one place) that will serve them on their journey in and out of the office.
I am significantly more confident in myself, which has directly impacted how I conduct myself at work and how I represent myself in networking events and during interview. Additionally, it has given me ways to look at my future that I did not see before. In particular, understanding what I really want verses what I think I want/need; that things may look differently than what I may have imagined. Overall, it was an incredible experience that I have greatly benefited from in many ways. I am grateful for the opportunity Jackie has given me, this is exactly what I needed professionally and personally.
