As a former student and now as an administrator of the Pace University Encore Transitions Program, I saw...how Astrid's questions and the sharing of her life experiences resonated with the students, how much joy they got out of watching her build stories for the students out of their answers to her questions and their listing of their life experiences -- stories they could use for their next acts. I saw them come alive, cast off their fears of transition and become genuinely excited and optimistic about the prospects for their second acts for the greater good. I look forward to one day soon working again with Astrid, this time on a one-to-one basis, as my own transition continues to evolve.

Astrid is an invaluable resource for ALL lawyers in transition. I felt lost and defeated after years of working at a law firm,and I wanted to make a change but didn\'t know how. Astrid immediately inspired confidence and helped me make positive changes in my career and personal life. The coaching process was empowering as I re-discovered my strengths and interests in addition to working on improving my weaknesses. With coaching, I was able to identify alternative career paths that I would find rewarding and that I would be passionate about based upon my unique set of strengths and values. Astrid also coached me through my interviews and brought out the best in me as I presented myself to new employers. I am excited about the opportunities in my new career, and coaching was instrumental in allowing me to be a happier and more productive person.
