Worklife CoaCHING Kudos

 

"I landed my dream job in the middle of the pandemic. Being onboarded online created some unforeseen issues, and I struggled to find my foundation. The unease turned into worry and began undermining my enjoyment of the role, my ability to bond with coworkers, and my confidence. I reached out to Kristina for coaching and a mental reset. She facilitated an environment of trust in which we could discuss anything literally. She has a unique ability to listen to what is said and unsaid and point out what is being overlooked. Through exploring my core strengths in rich detail, I began appreciating what I thought were my least valuable attributes. In short order, she helped me build the foundation I needed to find my way out of the turmoil--back to confidence and clarity." -L. Roe, Head of Quality 

"A friend recommended I contact Coach Kristina after years of watching me feel less and less satisfied in my work life. I began working with her, thinking that I wanted to end my 23-year-career in education. Through my sessions with Kristina, I soon discovered that I did not want to leave education but wanted to create new opportunities. The StrengthsCORE™ process generated a new sense of appreciation for my natural strengths and what I’m capable of achieving. The experience shifted my mindset. Kristina helped me examine many fulfilling moments in my professional life and connect these to my core strengths. Now, I have confidence in the kind of work that brings me joy and how to focus my energy. Not only that but with her guidance, I was able to create an opportunity at work that didn’t exist before. I now look forward to my work with new enthusiasm. I highly recommend Kristina’s coaching for anyone who is at a crossroads in their lives." -A. Sauvie, Educator

"Coach K helped me climb a worklife mountain in the amount of time it would have taken me to just catch a glimpse of the peak. By working through Core Momentum Group’s 12-week StrengthsCORE™ program, I accomplished a great deal more than I could have on my own. On many levels, it has been healing, too. Her approach in helping me to recognize limiting beliefs and unrealized dreams supported me in more ways than my worklife. Coach K meets you where you are, listens deeply, and asks powerful questions. I will continue to work with her and highly recommend her to anyone seeking a better understanding of their strengths & are ready to reimagine a more fulfilling worklife, and life!" - G. Grabiel, Entrepreneur

“I thoroughly enjoyed the 3-month program with Core Momentum. Kristina Mercier was professional and thorough. Her process and planning enabled me to identify and prioritize my goals and make several important decisions pragmatically and less emotionally because of our work. Her fresh view and probing techniques to identify the main issues were a great help. I would highly recommend Kristina’s program to anyone who is in a transition or looking to more clearly define his or her goals both professionally and personally.”  - L. Halladay, SVP Business Development

"Another great session! Working with you has restored my clarity and has given me my momentum back. I thank-you.  - L. Daniels, President, The Punch Factory

"Working with Kristina Mercier progressively drew from me an even higher purpose and a powerful clarity in vision for my business. Through her mastery of combining coaching and marketing skills, I have now polished my ability to confidently communicate to the world what my business has to offer in a language that speaks success.” - P. Pfeiffer, Founder of ESUSA, The Empowerment Society of the United States of America

“You aren't charging enough for this ... this class was so much more than I expected. All the work I’ve created through the Inner Marketing process is something I am going to refer to for a long time to come." – D. Pederson, Founder - Thomastown Technologies

“I can’t say enough about this program. It came about at a critical time in my professional life so I believe there was a reason I was a part of it. The process is very powerful and I am currently using it to make decisions about my life situation. This was truly inspiring.” - P. Sarkisian, Training Director at BBDO

“It was amazing to be able to spend this time with you and learn more about my strengths. While I had taken Clifton Strengths before and read the reports, I had not explored them in a deep way or connected them to my current experiences. I had thought, ‘Wow, this is so me’ but then took no action. In our discussions, it was great to have that reinforcement of what makes me tick. Since coaching with you, I have been more focused on achieving my daily goals. I think this is a testament to your skills and to why many people who are successful have personal coaches. - S. Planko, Engineering Manager at DUO Security

"What I found most helpful about Kristina’s coaching was her ability to see my true potential and understand my struggle. She honestly cares about you and your success and believes in your abilities. She was able to adeptly filter what she had heard me say into actionable insights. She sparked my enthusiasm and drive to take on a new work challenge with gusto when I had previously been overwhelmed and doubtful. I am forever grateful for her warm yet expert coaching." – A. Slaughter, Project Manager at Whiplash

“You have an ability to connect with the unique qualities in others, as well as a skill in spotting connections and alternate ways to proceed. In our coaching session, I walked away with insights where I had not expected them. I felt an immediate connection with you, and I appreciate your ability to be direct and inquisitive in a non-threatening yet challenging manner. I love that you live in the “now” and go with the flow. This is such an asset, especially during these uncertain times!” - N. Clovis, Leadership Development

Career Transition Kudos

“Kristina provided excellent advice, support and expertise in my search for a new career. She helped me with the interview process and salary negotiations. Without her, I would not have been hired for the position!!” - G. Lash, National Outreach Director, Philips - Visicu
 

“Kristina's recruiting capabilities are top-notch. She knows her clients very well and supports their hiring needs perfectly, especially for high-level professional positions. Similarly, she gets to know her candidates to the same degree so that she can be a strong advocate for them after the candidate and client have been brought together. These traits result in excellent candidate-client matches and are profitable because Kristina does not waste anyone's time with matches that are less than ideal.” - C. Butt, Principal Scientist, Neuroscience, Martek Biosciences
 

“Working with me remotely on a challenging project across the Atlantic, Kristina was committed, enthusiastic and flexible. Her approach is very personable, relaxed and professional. I have to say Kristina is the most supportive and proactive head hunter I've ever worked with!”- A. Henney, Director, AstraZeneca
 

“Kristina's major strength is her ability to ask the right questions to assess situations. Such a skill is essential for success in her current role. She doesn't waste time, her own or yours, if she doesn't have some answers or know where to get them. That is valuable to anyone who works with her. A vibrant personality, Kristina is a sparkplug whose intuitive nature makes her that much more unique and effective.” - R. Henkels, Director of Sales, Henkels & McCoy, Inc
