What did you need at the time you hired Lori?

I wanted to work in my industry and didn’t know how to progress any further than I was. I knew I had much experience that could be put in the industry of my choice but not how to parlay that experience. I needed guidance.

What did you and Lori do together?
Many, many things. Overall, to get clear in my mind what I offered and really what I wanted in a work environment. Every week was another epiphany after another. One of my favorites was the “knowing your core values”. Having had some experience on this subject I was all ready to dive-in. Core Values is key. Knowing your core values.

Lori makes it so easy to pinpoint. One time we were speaking about something else and we both realized…OMG…that is a core value for me. I hadn’t written it down before, but discovered later that if ever a core value fit me…it was the one I mentioned at that time. Knowing that piece of information also answered a long standing question in my head. One of the “why’s” as to my constant upset with other places I had worked.

What were the results from working with Lori?

Many things. One is a great looking resume. I thought, wow, I look good and it was all from work I had already done elsewhere but didn’t know how to say it or present it. Another is the clarity of knowing where I will feel good when I do work. What I really want and with the kind of people I really want to work with on a daily basis. This entire process is so valuable. The best money I ever spent and I am not kidding or exaggerating. I was only hoping it would be valuable and it really was valuable.< I know stuff and it has value and is marketable. Lori showed me those things and it gives me confidence.

Anything else you’d like to add?

Lori delivers above and beyond. The highest quality of exchange, ‘more than you expected.’ I told my friends this over and over: ‘I wish I had her 10-20-even 30 years ago.’ Every one, and I mean EVERYONE, needs a Lori. Her understanding,patience, how she problem solves, putting things in simple terms, was mind blowing. I wish I could that well. I present a problem and she could turn it around and yes…another epiphany.

Lori, is worth every penny. It isn’t about a title. It is about enjoying everyday doing work you love with people you like and are like minded. You’ll know what you are looking for when you interview. I never say this, but I will say it here. Lori is a major key into the rest of my life doing what I always wanted to do. That is: Being happy doing what I do, everyday. Something I have been saying for years. Allowing Sherlock…to be Sherlock. Finding my people. They are out there and now I know what I am looking for in that respect.

When I first met Lori, I was in a rut. Having spent 25 years in the same industry, I was bored, max’d out and didn’t know what to do next. I was pigeon-holed into an industry that I was not so fond of, and saw no way to get out. I felt trapped. Lori understood my predicament, as she had seen it all before — she was sympathetic, but resolute in knowing that she could help me find answers. I took great solace in that!

Through several sessions and dozens of exercises, I began to get a clearer picture of who I am, and where my strengths and talents truly lie. Working with Lori, I was able to translate that understanding into updated, targeted resumes that quickly produced interviews and gave me the confidence to express myself better than ever before.

Consulting a Career Coach should be mandatory for anyone in today’s work force, and Lori is the best at her profession.
