Working with Lucia helped me process my thoughts, so that now, I can move forward without doubt.
I’d been in my career for nearly 20 years and was considering my options. Do I stay safe or do something different? I was finding it really difficult to create the head space to reflect properly so that I could make a decision.
The biggest thing that came out of the process with Lucia was the realisation that I hadn’t been using some of my real strengths (or “Superpowers” as Lucia calls them) for so long that I thought they were my weaknesses.
I enjoyed being more analytical about what I’ve done in the past and liked the combination of short visual tools and longer form profiling tools we used to help me figure out what I’m very good at.
Of course, I know I’ll have tough days going forward but I feel that I have a much stronger foundation upon which to build that future.
Thank you so much for your time over the past few months. You really helped me focus on my strengths which helped me clarify my thoughts.
I was initially worried that career coach wouldn’t provide value for money or return on investment – both thoughts were unfounded as far as your style of coaching is concerned.
I found that my plans were not as wide of the mark as I’d feared and that attributes that I always believed were strengths are, in fact, super strengths! I particularly benefited from the face-to-face sessions that really got me to examine what I wanted to do and what I could do.
I found the whole experience confidence building - the creation of possibilities certainly lifts the spirit.
Many people seek career coaching because of self-doubt. Your style of coaching helped to lift my fog of self-doubt leaving the way ahead much clearer.
It was great to have someone as positive and enthusiastic cheering me on when I had kind of lost hope.
Working with Lucia was like a breath of fresh air because I'd been going round and round in circles, ruminating over the same ideas and the same stuck patterns of thought on what I might like to do. The positivity, passion and clarity Lucia offers can really open the gates of possibility for you to change career. She gave me the confidence to take some steps towards a career change that I hadn’t had the belief or confidence to take.
I liked the authentic interest Lucia showed throughout our coaching sessions. Her genuine curiosity in helping me to understand myself better made me more curious about myself as a person and more committed to my pursuit of finding a satisfying career. For example, Lucia tended to summarise what I had said or what we had covered during our calls – it was enlightening to hear someone else bring things together in a completely different way.
"I thought the workshop was very thought-provoking, and reassuring in many ways - that making what seems a large 'leap of faith' can be done in smaller steps over a period of time.
Lucia is an engaging speaker and the amount of information provided was just right for the evening, to allow people to reflect, take some ideas away, explore a bit themselves and potentially come back for more guidance."
"I was going to wait until my 60s to do what I loved but after working with Lucia I decided to just crack on with it.”
After my time with Lucia, I decided to stop doing what society had been telling me I should be doing and start doing what I really wanted to do. Her “superpowers” session had a huge impact on me. Somehow, she could not only accurately see my strengths but helped me value them from a completely different angle."
