  • Coaching Testimonial

    I am grateful for the opportunity to have had Carole’s time and attention. As a seasoned PM, I found myself in a rut and wanted to make a transition to an entirely new career path. Carole listened intently to my new thoughts and goals and was able to review, refine, enhance and teach me to be my own promoter and voice my career/life in the way it should be. She has an ability to understand and articulate the best ways to emphasize your knowledge, strengths and abilities. If it were not for Carole’s work with me, the hard discussions and the practice interviews, I doubt that I would have landed in my dream job. Only a month in but I am happier with my career and my home life. I now smile and laugh and have the desire to work. Best of all, I have lost my grumpy demeanor! Thank you Carole for being such an amazing coach and helping to change my life

  • Coaching Testimonial

    Carole Stizza is a wonderful coach. I loved how really caring she is and felt she “got” me. She gave me so much positive feedback and encouragement, combined with targeted feedback that helped me to overcome obstacles. Carole provided me with tools (thinking and communication framework) that has made a world of difference in how I approach people and tasks. I am able to communicate differently from before; more efficiently and better suited for my audience.

    I cannot thank her enough for her support and guidance. I was promoted to director during the time that she coached me and I believe that applying Carole’s recommendations and choosing to do and see things differently made the difference.

WHY MY Leadership COACHing?

Having supported a military family who moved often, leadership roles came in a variety of forms, each one unique both in geographic location and income.  Work leadership is not different than self-leadership and I quickly learned that what I had learned through tragedy became a gift through work.

Life is Short

Having led myself through the recovering of 3 car accidents, which all occurred while stopped and turning left, there was no fault or blame, nor any area of improvement that could have happened to prevent these.  At that point you have to either move forward or wallow and wallowing wasn’t an option.  The same can be said for work.

Wallowing slows down progress, limits opportunities, and basically just makes everything get stuck.

However, after my recovery of the difficult diagnosis of stage 3 cancer, I became – truly – just stuck.  I have seen this happen to many at work through an unexpected pivot in career plans, mergers that displace redundant personnel, downsizing due to economy, and right sizing for start-ups. And wonderful professionals get stuck.

This happens in every facet of our lives and when it happens in our work life, it can be overwhelming.  So much rides on how we are valued that many times we forget to value ourselves before we buy into how other’s value us.

Embrace your truth to recognize your happy!

When I got stuck, I got a coach. Each session brought new perspectives, new challenges, new ideas, and new ways to validate my gifts, talents, and skills. While all coaches are unique and offer what they are great at, I realized that I was a unique breed in the way I viewed leadership.  I’ve delved deep into research because I needed to be able to move opinions aside and help people feel validated through the rigors of science and get to heart of what makes them great.  To build their own leadership style and uniqueness.  To help them revel and explore where to grow based upon what makes them unique!
