Attorney

Astrid is an invaluable resource for ALL lawyers in transition.  I felt lost and defeated after years of working at a law firm,and I wanted to make a change but didn\'t know how.  Astrid immediately inspired confidence and helped me make positive changes in my career and personal life.  The coaching process was empowering as I re-discovered my strengths and interests in addition to  working on improving my weaknesses.  With coaching, I was able to identify alternative career paths that I would find rewarding and that I would be passionate about based upon my unique set of strengths and values.  Astrid also coached me through my interviews and brought out the best in me as I presented myself to new employers.  I am excited about the opportunities in my new career, and coaching was instrumental in allowing me to be a happier and more productive person.

Composer

 

"Astrid has turned around the way I look at my career in the most extraordinary way.  I used to think that the professional part of what I do was very separate from the creative and deeply personal aspects of being a composer.  Going after professional opportunities to get my music out there felt to me like a very daunting task--one that I found a little distasteful because it felt like "selling myself."  Astrid really helped me realize that building a career has to come from the most genuine part of myself--in the same way as building a piece.  With this understanding, the professional world looks much less scary to me now, and I'm able to reach out to my professional network with the courage of my conviction, and with the kind of personal investment and care that makes professional experiences deeply meaningful.  Career building is about believing in what you do, and its validity; it is about communication and courage.  It only works if it feels true to who you are.
With her supportive and positive attitude combined with her incredible sensitivity and intelligence, Astrid has created for me a wonderful safe space to discover how I want to develop my goals from the inside out.  I have found in her a true kindred spirit as well as a powerful ally and coach."

Working in a field where big personalities often clash, I feel that Astrid’s seminar on conflict management was a fantastic boost to my own ability to skillfully manage conflicts.  I feel like I have a much better awareness of my own conflict management style, and most importantly I feel that I can more deftly identify the most appropriate path forward in a given situation. Thanks Astrid!

Astrid has an incredibly positive yet focused energy that she dedicates towards helping individuals and organizations discover their best selves.  I’ve been fortunate to work with her on several occasions and I cannot tell you how much I value her wisdom, guidance, and encouragement.
