SUCCESS STORIES!

 

My focus is on helping people find solutions and offer strategies to intrinsic goals as well as offering expert skills training.

My partners usually come to me in search of skill-based solutions to public speaking, communication, interview skill building, or career change.

But they also come to me knowing that the issue is more complicated than skills alone.

They know their solution will also involve addressing emotions such as anxiety, confidence, nervousness, insecurity.

So we start there. As the program progresses we move into skill building.  One step at a time.

A wonderful Catalyst Partner of mine comes to mind…

We’ll call her Alice. Alice reached out to me because she was having difficult communicating and connecting with her supervisor of 7 years.

The situation had escalated and she found herself feeling insecure on a regular basis and at odds, often engaging in conflicting communication.

When she met with me the first time, the relationship had deteriorated into distrust.

As we began our process, Alice was determined and committed to doing whatever was needed. She knew the issue was about communication but also about her emotions...

At those early stages, what was needed was her honesty with herself and her willingness to look at her part. She was willing to do both.

Because of that, she was committed to the self-reflection and homework that I suggested.

She began to build her own feelings of self-worth and confidence through self-compassion work. Gradually, Alice was able to extend that compassion to her supervisor.

She began to practice the suggested communication techniques I offered and in time began to rebuild the trust between her and her supervisor.

From Alice’s reports and updates, the trust was being rebuilt on both sides.

Her success was a combination of her doing the work, her commitment, and her willingness to recognize that communication skills are much more complex than skill building. I’m so proud of her!

While Alice’s success is very personalized to her, I have helped hundreds of other partners over the years reach their own personal and professional success.

Another wonderful Catalyst Partner comes to mind...

We'll call him Jim. 

Jim was a supervisor at a large non-profit organization. Each week he was required to give an update at the leadership team meeting. Often he would speak as little as possible, and tried not to be noticed. Jim initially reached out to me for help with professional public speaking and communication. Although his primary goal was to communicate with more ease, his secondary goal was to increase confidence in himself, and to learn strategies for reducing nervousness when speaking up. He had ideas but never shared them because of fear. Through the course of the program with me, Jim committed himself to reducing his negative self-talk, identifying his beliefs about himself and others, and doing things everyday that helped him face his fears. By the end of the program, Jim had established himself as a vocal and contributing member of the leadership team. He knew his ideas were valuable not because others were telling him so, but because he had built his internal confidence and he came to know his own worth. Go Jim! 

It is my forever honor to do this amazing work with my partners. I am so grateful to be able to help people find peace, find compassion, and find confidence in themselves.

TESTIMONIALS

"The key to the program was the lovework and taking the time to complete it. Taking that little time to love yourself and honor yourself and stop the negativity. It's amazing how your entire perspective of everything can shift- personally and professionally. It was truly the key for me making such a huge shift. I realize now that I needed to come into my confidence before I could swipe away [my beliefs about others]. I had to go into myself first, own who I am, be comfortable with who I am. The lovework helped me do that, and being more compassionate, allowing myself to make a mistake, not beat myself up, give myself the space to not be perfect, take the lessons I learned and move forward. I have become more self-aware, trusting of my instincts, tuning into my inner voice, owning myself and feeling comfortable in my own skills. I now go into the room as myself, and face my fears. I feel brave, assertive. I just didn’t see it before, I was looking for applause in other people, but now I don’t need their validation to feel whole. When I stopped seeking it from other people and started giving it to myself -it helped me work through my own insecurities. I stopped comparing myself to others, and began celebrating my own little accomplishments, embracing my own idea of success."

"I spent several sessions with Rebecca to prepare. Her guidance, insights, and recommendations made all the difference. Her coaching is straightforward and illuminating--she can discern one's strengths and weakness and propose just the right regimen."

-R.L.

"I would highly recommend Rebecca Cooley! We hired her to coach our speakers for an event, which included general presentation skills and timing. She was great about keeping me informed on their progress and making suggestions about the overall theme of the content to ensure the speakers were heading in the right direction (I was not in the sessions, as they were private between her and the speaker). At the event, the speakers were all amazing and we had a large number of comments on their exceptional speaking ability. So clearly, the coaching worked! In fact, I have already spoken to Rebecca about hiring her for another upcoming speaker event.
-Courtney Edwards

"How do you prepare for a job interview when you have no idea what questions will be asked? Rebecca helped me do just that! The tools and tips she gave me were great. I walked into the room feeling prepared to answer any question I would be asked. I felt more confident than I ever have entering the room where the interview took place, and it was the first time ever that I left a job interview feeling that I gave adequate answers to the questions asked. I highly recommend Rebecca Cooley; she taught me some valuable strategies that I will be able to use in my future endeavors."

-A. E.​​ ​

"Through working with Rebecca, I have more clearly defined what I enjoy in life and what I want to get out of life. With that I have developed goals to pursue the things that I truly value. Rebecca then helped me define manageable action steps to get from point A to point B with accountability that helped me break the complicated wishes and desires into tangible steps for which I could take immediate action. The profound take away I had was to sit down and look at different facets of my life to identify my core values. I accomplished this through focus and by becoming more mindful of my feelings and emotions.  During each of our conversations, Rebecca demonstrated a true sense of genuineness. Her no judgment approach encouraged me to dream big. And with big dreams have come new and exciting opportunities.  My confidence has soared and my jovial, fun, and charismatic  personality emerged — I have become more of the me I want to be."

-J. Kenney

"I wanted To let you know that today I got an offer for my dream job and couldn't be happier. Thank you so much for your help because without it I'm sure I wouldn't have gotten close."

"Rebecca's coaching is straightforward and illuminating--she can discern one's strengths and weakness and propose just the right regimen to improve one's relationship with oneself and the world in which he or she interacts. I wholeheartedly endorse her work as a life coach."
