I've Been Challenged: Where Do My Resume Coaching Clients End Up?


From time-to-time, job seekers, service seekers and/or prospective clients bring me questions.  I’ve recently been challenged by someone who suggested that I talk / write quite frequently about results.  He asked me to prove to him that my clients actually achieve results when they invest in my methodologies and services 

Yes I do focus a lot on results and I’ll continue to focus on results. One of my top strengths is called “Maximizer” and I do everything I can to live out of this particular strength all day every day.  Even when I'm not at my desk and I'm on the ice playing hockey or on a trail riding my mountain bike.

Maximizer is a Gallup trademarked term.  Here is the definition:

“People exceptionally talented in the Maximizer theme focus on strengths as a way to stimulate personal and group excellence.  They seek to transform something strong into something superb.”

When I explain this strength to others, I tell them that it is in my DNA to take “Good to Great”.

When I work with my coaching clients, whether I’m helping them with a Resume strategy or their LinkedIn strategy or I’m going deeper to help my clients with strengths coaching, emotional intelligence coaching and/or behavioral change, my focus is always on helping that client move from “Good to Great”.
