"Kristen is intuitive and many a times helped me process my feelings/emotions thereby shifting my energy in the moment. It was very easy to connect with Kristen and share how I felt. Kristen helped me move so many steps forward towards my career goal. I highly recommend Kristen."
"Working with Kristen feels natural. She sees the good in everyone, and helps you see it too. Even on my worst days, she helped me see everything I could do and helped me keep my eyes on the goal."
"Thank you for working through this with me last week. I'm now able to move through this week without worrying if I 'did it right'. I really appreciate you helping me feel empowered and confident in my decisions."
She is an iPec-trained coach using the Energy Leadership model as a base. She spent two decades working in banking and financial services, including management, coaching, and peer learning. Her expertise is in empowering associates, creating cohesive teams, and leading with humanity.
You have the power to control your energy, attitude, and decisions. It isn't always as easy as it sounds.With the mazes navigated each day it is easy to lose sight of overall goals. We are truly at our best when
we are giving ourselves the same compassion, love, and understanding we give others.
My coaching style is about empowering yourself to take control of the energy you create. Many times we forget how much control we have over our circumstances. My favourite moments are when my clients realise how much power they have to change their environment to work in their favour.
