Working in a field where big personalities often clash, I feel that Astrid’s seminar on conflict management was a fantastic boost to my own ability to skillfully manage conflicts. I feel like I have a much better awareness of my own conflict management style, and most importantly I feel that I can more deftly identify the most appropriate path forward in a given situation. Thanks Astrid!
Astrid has an incredibly positive yet focused energy that she dedicates towards helping individuals and organizations discover their best selves. I’ve been fortunate to work with her on several occasions and I cannot tell you how much I value her wisdom, guidance, and encouragement.

My colleagues and I benefited immensely from Astrid's communications and branding workshops. She established a great rapport with our group so that everyone felt comfortable discussing their strengths, weaknesses and individual styles of communication. Astrid provided specific and concrete tools for creating a unique brand that was meaningful to both very junior and very senior lawyers. We left each session with individualized feedback and energized to take the next steps in our careers. We will definitely invite Astrid back for more programs!’

There seem to be an infinite number of resources available to people looking to make career changes these days, and I think I looked into most of them before I met Astrid. Numerous books advised me to do what I loved. That sounded good, except that I didn’t know what I loved. A career test provided some insight and long lists of possibly compatible jobs, but ultimately directed me to do what I loved - back to square one. Another career coach, dispensing with frivolities like love, laid out a practical approach to a career path that objectively made some sense, but I knew in my heart that I would hate it. I felt deficient for not knowing what I loved, unreasonable for rejecting a sensible path that didn’t appeal, and in general, completely hopeless about my situation.
