Change Management - Executive Coaching

Client: Principal Implementation Consultant
Location: North Carolina, USA
This case is about an individual who has worked in the IT Professional Services sector for her entire working career. Having worked for a number of large ERP solution vendors in a variety of countries she was becoming restless and questioning where her career was heading. She had just had her CV/resume re-written with a company who also offered Executive Coaching. She felt that she wasn't 'getting anywhere' in her work but when speaking to the coaching staff she didn't gel with them personally. It was then that she found Unlike Before and began working with Deanne.
Our client was looking to change company but wasn't finding positions that felt a good fit, that were satisfying, and where she could do what she wanted to do. This was also carrying over into her personal life and her reality was one of 'same old, same old'. She felt pigeon holed into the same position every time she changed company when what she really wanted was something different. There was no fun to be had anywhere.
By committing to a 6 month Executive Coaching partnership with Unlike Before our client was also making a commitment to herself. The coaching partnership involved us meeting on a weekly basis for one hour. We worked together discovering what she really wanted to be doing constantly challenging her status quo and self-beliefs, while all the time encouraging her to set boundaries where she could specifically focus on nurturing herself. We requested that she look internally and externally so as to benefit fully from the partnership.

In our client's words, "Unlike Before has and still is challenging me to think 'outside the box'. It sounds simple but it is not. I've been given techniques that help me when I fall back into my old patterns of behaviour. I've changed my job, my outlook and am working towards my goals. Deanne has helped me to realise my value and I have confidence that I can actually reach my goals."
Our client has now given herself permission to dream and to know that she can turn those dreams into goals and actually reach those goals. She is more positive about life, where she is now and where she wants to be. She continues to focus on not taking 'ownership' of everyone else's problems and making them her own even though she remains willing and able to help. She feels for the first time in a long time she is still growing, learning and enjoying instead of slogging.

"I don't believe that I would have been able to do this on my own. I am so committed to this program with Unlike Before that I am continuing with another 6 month partnership."
