How Anne Marie Coaches
Anne Marie’s main goal as a coach is for her clients to earn a high return on their investment in the coaching process. Put simply, she works with clients on simplifying the process so they can take action to move forward on their path. Often the first action is to clarify what that path is, whether or not it seemed obvious prior to coaching.
Her coaching style blends active listening with gentle but straightforward feedback so her clients can effectuate the change they seek in their lives. Clients come to her for the more traditional role of a career coach in the midst of a job search or career advancement or transition, but also to keep on track during other critical points in their working lives.
Her coaching practice has grown out of, and leverages her insights from, her interactions with colleagues and clients during these years. Many of her clients were high-end executives or private fund managers, wanting to maximize value with minimal time input, so she is familiar with that world. On the other hand, they often looked to me to help them stay centered, connected and grounded, especially during challenging times.
How I Write
Her main goal as a resume writer is to help clients find and communicate their value to their main audience, which is often the interviewer and hiring manager/committee. Too often resumes are simply a laundry list of what a candidate has done rather than a marketing document designed to help one’s audience picture the candidate in the new role and feel compelled to make it happen.
Her writing process includes a resume interview session with each client so that she can understand the client’s vision and goals, as well as the client’s experience and background that supports the message to be communicated.
