Group Coaching & Other Updates
Hello!  Here is my friendly email to let you know about opportunities to receive support, coaching and networking in your career transition and/or help you maintain work/life wellness.

It's a very affordable way to work with me and also gather with like-minded folks who are on a conscious career/life journey.  Group coaching generally takes place the first Tuesday evening of each month unless otherwise specified in these reminders.
Please note that the next Tuesday Talk Group Coaching will take place Tuesday, November 7th from 6:00pm - 8:00pm.  We hope to see you there - please make every effort to RSVP by 12 noon so we know how many and who to expect. SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN FOR MORE DETAILS, LOCATION & PAYMENT INFORMATION

What can working with Kristina do for you? Here's a recent client testimonial: 
What I found most appealing, and what sets Kristina apart from other career coaches, is her emphasis on your "whole picture." She considers everything you were exposed to or experienced, how that ties into your life's goals and how to find the best path forward from there. Talking with Kristina made sense of all the ideas and confusion running around in my head.  The initial session further confirmed the direction I want to go in and visualize where I want to be; doing her homework helped me become more confident in owning what my gut is telling me and fueled my passion to pursue what I know deep down is right for me. 
As a result of working with Kristina, I now have the tools, motivation and perspective to create my dream career and life. Because of her insights and expertise, I am the happiest and most content I've ever been and found an incredible peace of mind.  
~ Alyssa C.

I am always looking for speakers who are interesting, dynamic and "real" who are able to educate and motivate my group of highly intelligent and creative minds. I found that with Kristina. The members were involved and inspired. The group and I really enjoyed our time with her. I'm sure each and every one of us took something positive away from the encounter. Kristina gave a wonderful, thought provoking presentation to the group. She is truly a breath of fresh air. It is obvious that Kristina is doing what she preaches and excels at it. I highly recommend Kristina as a coach, speaker and mentor.

In case you missed this PGG.....I had someone film parts of my New Attitude Summer School series (see info below), which resulted in this very-roughly-edited-not-the-best-quality video of uninterrupted remarks wrapping up the workshop
 " Lead Yourself to Success (in Work & Life!)"  

In this excerpt covering the final ten minutes, I summarize
my thoughts about confidence, being a leader in your own life,  maintaining your individuality and humanity in the times we live in, and why the world is relying on you to be successful.   Enjoy!
