Insightful Choices

My Career Counseling and Coaching Services

Feeling lost? Need to identify the right career for you? Want more job satisfaction? Don’t know what to do?

  • If you are like so many people today, you may be confused about what to do, what type of job or career you should pursue. You may feel stuck.
  • If you are a college student, you may not be sure what you are going to do when you graduate.
  • If you are going to college, you may not know what major to choose
  • If you are a college graduate or in your 20’s, you may not have found the career path that is right for you or you may be having problems finding a job. 
  • Perhaps you have started a career and now don’t like it and questioning what to do.
  • Maybe you are in your 40’s or 50’s or 60’s and find that you have to reinvent yourself because your “career” had disappeared.


Using assessment tools, working through barriers to success, identifying new options and new strategies, you will get the counseling and guidance you need. Whether you are just starting in your career or a senior executive, I can help.

You can get assistance so you understand what’s going on today that impacts your choice of a career, how you can surmount the obstacles and gain confidence that you can have a successful career. We provide you with a personalized plan and coaching to achieve your goals. This includes creating a job search strategy, a linked in profile, resumes, and letters.


While anyone can go on-line today and find anything, it’s not the same as having a trained professional provide direction, analysis, and support throughout the process. Here you get motivated, have accountability, and the personal attention to address your specific needs and issues. 

Individuals Choose to Work With a Counselor/Coach if They:

  • Want help assessing their skills, interests, values, needs to create a “personal profile” that is key in the career decision-making process
  • Are interested in learning more about their career and job options
  • Are a recent graduate and not sure about a career path
  • Are at a crossroads and want to consider alternative career choices
  • Want to re-examine their overall career goals and direction

  • Are feeling dissatisfied in their career or their job
  • Need a job search strategy that will work to get you interviews

I will work with you to help you gain self-awareness, perspective and a real understanding of your options. My goal is to help you make changes, find solutions, explore viable alternatives that can lead to more rewarding work and career life.

Testimonials

After graduating college, I wasn't so sure about what type of job I should get or how to go about getting that job. Nancy helped me throughout the entire process which included personality/aptitude tests, resume and cover letter writing, finding leads, interviewing, and negotiating offers. She helped me build confidence in an area that I found very nerve-wracking. Not only did she provide great advice, but she was also very compassionate and understanding of how someone's first job search can be scary. I've been at my first job for over a year, and I thank Nancy for helping me help myself to get here.

Nancy is an amazing counselor, H/R professional, and a career coach. I have used her in all three capacities. Her career counseling helped me land my VP-level job. She worked as my new company's head of HR and made seminal changes to increase employee satisfaction and retention. And I sent a young, underprivileged young woman to her to successfully learn how to come out of her shell, win a job interview, and get her first job ever in the workplace. Nancy is a gem with her depth of experience, sharp expertise, and lovely personality.

Coaching & Human Resources Consulting

Throughout my career, I have provided coaching, HR consulting, training and recruiting services to small entrepreneurial, mid-size and larger organizations in diverse industries, both for-profit and non-profit. 


COACHING:

  • Employee Personal Problems (Counseling)
  • Work Performance Problems
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Communication Issues
  • Volatile Situations
  • Managerial Skills

Employees, whether they are managers or staff personnel can use coaching to help them resolve interpersonal, conflict, and work performance issues that need to be addressed. If you are a manager, you may not know how to energize a team, or manage an employee performance issue, or deal with an employee who seems to have personal or emotional issues getting in the way of their work performance. Coaching is an important part of a manager’s job as is communicating effectively about expectations and job responsibilities.

Often, this doesn’t happen and the result is an employee gets fired or leaves. Turnover is expensive. There are times when two employees are not getting along and there is conflict. Sometimes one employee seems to be the problem but no one knows how to handle the situation.

As a coach and counselor, I can provide assistance to employees and managers to help alleviate workplace problems, boost performance and morale and increase work productivity—along with growing the communication and interpersonal skills of everyone concerned.

HR CONSULTING:

  • Consulting to junior HR professionals to assist them in establishing effective human resources functions/departments/policies
  • Employee On-Boarding & Employee Engagement
  • Employee Relations / Conflict Resolution
  • Root Cause/Metrics Analysis and Focus Groups
  • Recruiting

If your organization might need coaching or HR consulting assistance, please give me a call. My goal is to help you maximize and empower your employees to produce outstanding results. Your greatest asset is your people, your employees and if your employees are not engaged, feeling valued, and effectively dealing with personal or work-related issues that impact their productivity and satisfaction, then you will have a turnover or just lack of commitment and caring about how they do their jobs or meet objectives. If you are experiencing “people” issues where coaching, counseling or human resources consulting could help, contact me or give me a call.
