I received the most heartwarming email from a client a few weeks ago. I want to share it with you here because it struck a chord with me and I will be forever grateful for how this client made me feel. She was a ‘dynamo’ right from the beginning and you can tell from her note, that she continues to do exceedingly well in her career. She found the positive in a very stressful career transition – and she moved forward with grace and dignity. She never spoke a bad word about her employer, in fact, she was grateful for them to have employed her for years, and been generous enough to have paid for my services during her transition.
See if you can pick up the vibe she shared with me during our work together.
“The feedback from everyone who gets my portfolio has been extremely positive. Almost everyone comments that they have never seen such a professional portfolio or such a comprehensive LinkedIn profile as mine, which is extremely flattering and makes me very proud. Each introductory letter I have sent out has resulted in a reply from the president followed up by an interview, mostly on the phone, but in person as well.
I wouldn’t have gotten this far in my search without your tremendous assistance. Your coaching, feedback, and professionalism gave me the tools, the strategy and the confidence I needed to get a foot in the door. Thank you so very much.”
As I clean out my home and my files in preparation for my family’s move to Belgium, these warm thoughts and messages bring much joy to my day and remind me of the value in the work I do. I am truly grateful to do the work I do.
What makes you feel valued at work?
