Courage is being yourself in a world that tells you to be someone else.
Patrice is such a guiding light. There are so many times that she helped me get “ah ha” moments!
Being coached by Patrice is a calming, peaceful, profoundly impactful experience. She helped me to remember things that I was not aware I had forgotten. She assisted me in creating next steps for my life that have been empowering, fun and transformative.
In the process of coaching, I have come to realize things about myself - have epiphanies - that have allowed me to change the ways I am behaving and change myself for the better. It has given me the ability to see my patterns and crack them. I have been able to apply these new behaviors at work and immediately noticed the impact.
Because of your guidance, willingness and knowledge, you have brought out the best in me! You always knew when I wasn’t myself and you encouraged me to be no one else but who I want to be. I have accomplished so much these past two months because of you - because you gave me the confidence I needed. For that, I am forever grateful.
I worked with Patrice for a few months and really appreciated the way she asked questions – always steering me toward my own truth and my own answers – and listened deeply. The questions were thought provoking, even stopping-me-in-my-tracks. I remember one especially raw session when I was feeling disappointed in my own performance at work. She challenged me. A door opened for me that day and the stress stayed behind. I’ve struggled with articulating what’s on my mind and I thank Patrice for helping me to do so
You know that I coach, but you may not know that I have a coach. Her name is Patrice Ford and she combines intelligence and compassion in an approach that has helped me immeasurably over the last few months. Seriously, you can imagine how much I think of her and the work she does if I am providing a testimonial for someone in MY line of business.
My work with Patrice gave me the clarity I need to not only realize what I wanted as a career, but also the courage to go after the career that i want.
