Clients Say...

Director of Learning and Engagement, OPERA America

[Opera America hired Astrid to lead two workshops for our 2013 Leadership Intensive.]  Astrid’s background in nonprofit management and ongoing work with performing arts organizations meant that she was able to tailor the leadership workshops to the specific needs of opera leaders.

Pianist & Juilliard Graduate

"The [Energy Leadership] assessment broke down my life clearly into seven energy levels, and it was shocking to see how much negative energy level was present.  Being an extremely visual person, it was the reality check that I needed. The assessment gave me a foundation on which to base my future action plan in terms of solving issues.  While everyone has positive and negative energy in their lives, it is really helpful to know what percentages they are, and how they are also subcategorized, and how these tie in with each other."

Music Publicist

 

"I chose to work with Astrid because of her background in both the arts and business worlds.  After our consultation meeting, it became clear to me that she works with her clients to help them achieve success that rings true for each individual, and doesn't just follow the same formula with everyone.  She is also a terrific listener and very easy to talk to.  There was nothing about the coaching process with Astrid that felt fake or empty -- we got down to nuts and bolts, and took a good look at the motivations behind my current habits as a means of changing those habits when necessary.  As a result of working with her, I have reached a new level of balance in my life, and I have more confidence than before about my business decisions.  Though it wasn't my main goal going into coaching, I also have found I am doing better financially than in the past.  I am now able to approach new situations and apply what I discovered with Astrid, so the benefits of coaching with her have extended beyond the time we were actively working together.  It was an invaluable experience."

What comes to mind when you answer the following two questions? What do you do professionally? How do you feel about your career? The first is relatively straightforward: I'm a student, a musician, an arts administrator, a lawyer, a business professional in transition. The second is trickier because it gets beneath the surface and examines your attitude towards your career. When I ask this question in my class or in my workshops, I get a variety of answers: Great!
