My coach's perspective on the decisions we make that alter the trajectory of our careers - it is not just looking at the next step on the ladder, but a complex web of factors that drive us to work on what we are passionate about. This was not just I need help with X okay here is X - Mike really dove deep into my why to understand the root problem rather than just treating symptoms.Reed

After a 40-year career in sales, marketing and account management, I recently retired. Following two weeks of sleeping in, I awoke one morning to ask myself, Okay, what now? Michael Hodge skillfully guided me through a process of self-discovery, for which I am grateful. First, we discussed what type of coaching and frequency would be most beneficial to me at this point in my life. Michael helped me create a metaphor for my life's journey (so far) and consider what possibilities lay ahead in the future. He also assisted me in developing, refining, and prioritizing several unfinished life goals that I am now pursuing with fervor. Michael Hodges patient listening skills; his calm and analytical demeanor are a tribute to his success as a qualified life coach.MikeR
I like the way Mike is able to get me to critically think about my own (sales) process. He has added value points, while simultaneously challenging me to come out with my own ideas and strategies.Noah
I had the pleasure of working with Mike as my career coach in the autumn of 2022. I can describe Mike's services and approach as very caring, motivating, and encouraging - and yet filled with practical advice and takeaways! Most importantly, these sessions helped me to laser-focus my job search by identifying the Target role - as an experienced professional running my agency for many years, I have been wearing numerous hats, and it wasn't clear to me how my Dream Job should look like at the moment, and what the official title can be called. By asking delicate but guiding questions, Mike had me identify what I am most passionate about and suggested that I envision and describe myself in this realm - which I did in the form of updating my LinkedIn profile, of course, but also by quickly creating my website https://www.natalielihacova.com/ which emphasizes my current passion and the most relevant of my "hats" - Product Management. Even if we only consider this takeaway - it is already a huge one! However, it is just one of many.Natalie
