“I had a coaching relationship with Kim Geil [for three months]. During that time I was able to focus on examining the bigger picture and realizing that my life consists of so much more than the small aspects I was focusing on. She helped me vocalize many of the thoughts and emotions floating around in my head in order to hear myself from an outsider’s perspective and gain a deeper understanding of what was driving my thoughts and choices.” – Danielle A.
“I was struggling with procrastination- (and perfectionism)-related issues as I prepared for my comprehensive exam, a requirement of my PhD program. Kim helped me to develop a number of positive and practical strategies for working through these issues, as well as helping me to identify patterns of what strategies were not working for me, and might actually be hindering my progress. Overall, I found working with Kim to be a thoroughly helpful and positive experience, and I would definitely recommend her to others!” – Lisa C.
“Before coaching with Kim, I was in a deep emotional hole, at a major personal crossroads, and confused about how to proceed with a pivotal decision that had to be made, which would change my entire future. Kim’s ability to cut through the noisy chatter of my monkey mind really helped me clarify the most important issues and re-frame my outlook into a more hopeful and empowering vision of the possibilities. And her support in taking action was instrumental in smoothing out what otherwise would have been a very rocky road.” – Diana D.
“Kim was friendly, insightful, and cultivated…she helped guide me in the right direction (changing my major) that I am currently still pursuing six months later. I would definitely recommend her to others.” – Amy N.
“I felt that I was about 70% effective at work for over two months. There were many things going on. I was doing what’s needed to move things forward, but I had the feeling that I was not organized, not energized, and not at my best at all. I am usually energized by having a vision for both short- and long-term, a future that guides me and my colleagues to move to a better state, but I was struggling with having any vision. [After working with Kim] I feel like I am at about 90% effective now. I achieved results: I was able to get tasks done. I felt clear about my priorities for the day, for the week, for the quarter, and then planning for the year. I don’t feel overwhelmed. I am confident about my choices and my decisions on what to do and what to let go of. This empowers me to then mobilize others on the projects that I want to focus on. I have more time to listen and support others around me.” – Hei F.
