Attorney at Amlaw 100 firm

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!’

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.

Associate at Boutique NYC Law Firm

The results of our weekly sessions surpassed all expectations.  In concrete terms, within five months I obtained a new job that permits me to continue being a lawyer – a career path that I was on the verge of quitting despite years of education and hard work – while honoring my values, interests, and creativity and making a good living:  a combination I never thought possible as an attorney in private practice in NYC.  Astrid’s probing questions and value-oriented exercises played a significant role in giving me the focus and courage to identify and pursue my new legal career.
