I was introduced to Astrid's method by way of prep work to be done ahead of session two of a two-part leadership intensive. Having participated in a number of trainings and intensives, I came into the workshop with a commitment to being "open", but also expecting a little more of the same thing, packaged in a different wrapper. What I found within five minutes of the workshop was a feeling of excitement, enthusiasm, and engagement as Astrid began the process of guiding the group through a dynamic two day presentation of leadership training.
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.
"Astrid's approach to personal development and self-discovery was stellar. She was able to consolidate my hunches on what had made me successful and happy in the past, and to refine them in a positive, value-oriented way. The workshop was succinct and compelling, addressing both the practical and psychological concerns of professional musicians. Astrid is an inspiring and engaging speaker, and also a compassionate individual. I highly recommend her workshops to all those who have all those questions and doubts that always seem to be milling about upstairs!"
