With the support of Laura Geduldig, I am living an intentional life I only imagined in my dreams!
A respected colleague and friend recommended Laura as an effective and results-oriented coach, and I am so appreciative. When I first spoke to Laura, I was facing a life and career quandary. On the one hand, I loved my work with its 24/7 adrenaline high. I loved my boss, the organization and its mission. The flip side was I had worked with great dedication (and results) for my entire career and had placed my relationships with family and friends behind work. Having experienced the death of a parent and seeing people close to me facing health issues, I re-examined my life and wanted to nurture the important relationships that I had taken for granted for most of my career. I wanted a life that had purpose, which meant I had to make a dramatic change. Laura proved to be the perfect coach for my journey.
Throughout our coaching engagement, Laura listened carefully to my hopes and dreams as well as my concerns and obstacles. She helped me identify what was holding me back – and through reinforcing what I shared with her at key points, she kept me honest and true to the life I wanted to live. She pushed when I needed to be encouraged and paused when I needed time to reflect. Most important, when I was ready to jump into my new life, she was on the phone helping me pull the cord and I drifted knowingly into a safe landing with my parachute billowing boldly in the wind.
Life after Laura is more than I dreamed it could be. I am doing work that aligns with my values, while also carving out a life that includes long walks by the ocean with my two big dogs, relaxed time spent with both old and new friends and quality time with family. I am content, happy, healthy and blessed. I guarantee my new life would not have been possible without Laura behind me every step of the way.
Laura’s coaching was instrumental to my success, and I am stronger, directed and more confident because she showed me what is possible. Life is good – and I am engaging Laura once again as my coach so I will stay true to the life I have created.
