A light bulb moment during Claudia’s workshop, ‘Women: Take your Seat at the Table’, helped me to find the main obstacle that had been blocking my progress. When I tackled it I got promoted to director - just a few weeks after the workshop! Five years of being stuck at middle management over!
I would heartily recommend Winning Pathways Coaching to anyone who isn’t quite sure who they are, what they should be doing or even what they want to do, and how in the world to get there. I have no idea where I’d be if I hadn’t been so lucky to meet Claudia- and I am absolutely sure I would not be so confident in my plans for the future as I am now.
After just 4 of my 6 sessions coaching programme, I got the secondment I so badly wanted to get me prepared for promotion. Next step, senior management! Amazing!
I was facing big life changes - redundancy, turning 50 and a move to a new town. I needed a plan of action. Coaching helped me to decide what I wanted and to develop suitable actions to get me there. Claudia showed me that coaching was a necessary investment in my professional and personal development.
The coaching experience was very positive as Claudia gave me the space to consider my current approach to ‘difficult’ situations and how I could improve them. I finished on a high note with increased confidence, strategies and techniques for getting better results in my relationship with people at the top. Highly recommended.
I came to Claudia because I was lacking confidence in my abilities. I’m in a responsible role at work and was terrified of making mistakes, large or small. Claudia helped me to work through the barriers in my thought process and create a plan for overcoming them. I’ve made so much progress, feel more confident in my abilities and have received positive and complimentary comments about my development in my appraisal.
I’m continually amazed by Claudia’s ability to continually pinpoint the exact issue undermining my efforts to achieve the success that I deserve. Sometimes I’m confident on the outside but within, a different story. Since working with Claudia for over a year now, I’ve managed to shake many of the limiting beliefs that were undermining my inner power as a professional woman. Now, I’ve a much stronger brand, a much stronger position in the market and in my industry and much more power within myself due to having worked with her. I recommend her to all women who are strong on the outside, but soft and gentle on the inside (but don’t want anyone to know that)
I was hoping to get some business direction and ideas through coaching from Claudia, but I got so much more. I got my business off the ground and she encouraged me towards my goals. She also helped me through relationship problems and serious health issues. She is compassionate, creative, highly intuitive and knows exactly how to ensure you find the best within yourself. I feel I have overcome many things that have always held me back and now know with confidence that I have many tools to be not just a successful business woman but a woman who is happy and confident in herself. I can’t recommend Claudia highly enough.
I think the main thing about Winning Pathways for me was the return of my confidence and self esteem. I have had a horrible 8 months at work with the threat of redundancy. When I first met Claudia my emotional pendulum was swinging wildly but this settled down with focusing on me. Women are always helping others, running the house, running the office, supporting husbands, children, our bosses. At least this time Claudia was there to say hang on, where are you going? what do youwant? You’re important too.
I wanted to increase my self-confidence at work and I came to coaching with a genuine desire to make changes but with a very low expectation of anything actually changing. How wrong I was! Claudia helped me find my path, encouraged me to take small steps that have led to bigger steps and looking back over 6 months, I am filled with a sense of achievement and pride at what I have done.
My coaching sessions with Claudia have helped me grow in confidence, understand myself better and learn some important lessons. I found the coaching process fascinating; realising that we really do have the answers and the wisdom, we just need to give ourselves the time and space to get to it. A professional coach will guide you through this process to get you there faster. I’m now better at my job and feel more able to handle difficult situations.
I had my first ever coaching experience and Claudia’s approach was engaging and challenging. I felt the session was inspiring and effective and enabled me to come up with the answers to a specific problem. Claudia didn’t let it end there however, she empowered me to put together a plan of action which I have already begun to implement. It was certainly a powerful hour that refocused and re-energised me.
Claudia establishes an effective coaching rapport very quickly and despite having been previously sceptical of the ultimate benefits of coaching I have found her coaching sessions challenging, supportive and very, very effective.
Claudia helped me identify the core issues I needed to work on and enabled me to own the problems and make the changes. Great work!
Through working with Claudia I have developed:- More confidence in myself as a manager and leader. - A better and more effective working relationship with my managers.My other thank you is for the way that Claudia helped me to look at myself in a more holistic manner to respect myself and my needs and to see that it’s not all about me.
Working with Claudia on an 8 session programme, gave me the kick that I needed. I’d lost motivation in several areas of my life; I’d become uncertain and was drifting. Claudia helped me to put focus and purpose back into my life. My confidence has increased, I know where I am going and I am well on the way to getting there.
I’m now a director. Our coaching sessions were the start of my journey to this post.
