"The [Energy Leadership] assessment broke down my life clearly into seven energy levels, and it was shocking to see how much negative energy level was present.  Being an extremely visual person, it was the reality check that I needed. The assessment gave me a foundation on which to base my future action plan in terms of solving issues.  While everyone has positive and negative energy in their lives, it is really helpful to know what percentages they are, and how they are also subcategorized, and how these tie in with each other."

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.

I was introduced to Astrid's method by way of prep work to be done ahead of session two of a two-part leadership intensive. Having participated in a number of trainings and intensives, I came into the workshop with a commitment to being "open", but also expecting a little more of the same thing, packaged in a different wrapper. What I found within five minutes of the workshop was a feeling of excitement, enthusiasm, and engagement as Astrid began the process of guiding the group through a dynamic two day presentation of leadership training.

It can be time-consuming, risky and involve multiple and conflicting agendas. But at its best, i...
