Working with Laura was a huge pleasure! She helped me gain some much needed clarity as well as helped me in areas I didn’t realize I needed help in.
In the sessions we had together I was able to pin point my strengths & my values, build up my confidence & self assurance, and developed better habits to aid in my job hunting process. This would have taken me significantly more time to figure out left to my own devices.
My time spent with Laura was truly worth while and I’d recommend her to anyone looking for career counselling.
"Laura asked me challenging questions about myself and thus made me see my full potential. She helped me identify where I see myself in the future and which measures I should take to achieve my goals and to stay motivated.
Ultimately, she helped me recognize my strengths which boosted my confidence. I highly recommend Laura to anyone who is thinking about hiring a career coach."
“Laura's coaching has been life changing for me. She helped me identify where I was struggling, and helped me determine what action steps I needed to take in my personal life so I could start my first business. Since starting with Laura a few months ago, I have completed an online interior design business course, been featured in a militaryspouse.com article about creating passive income in short term real estate, started working with my first interior decorating client, and have been invited to be interviewed on the Active Duty Passive Income Podcast to share my knowledge and promote my virtual interior decorating business targeting military spouses. I’m more focused, have more time, am more positive, and I’m enjoying the journey thanks to Laura’s mindfulness practice and other helpful tips and she provided along the way.”
Like many people my career/work had been affected by COVID-19, and for the first time in 8 years I found myself job searching and I knew my searching techniques and CV were outdated and that I needed help.
Laura had previously explained the importance of a crucial ‘Mindset’ and then in the session we looked at my skills audit, evaluating both my soft skills and my technical skills which is where I was having a bit of a brain freeze moment.
In this deep dive session we were able to identify skills that I have, which I never thought about putting on my CV previously, but these are transferable skills that I can use in future positions.
All of this help and advice will help me on my next stage to look at my strengths and get clarity on my future and help me to create my personal brand.
Laura, was professional, friendly and helpful and I would fully recommend her to anyone who is seeking some career advice.
Thank you so much Laura your help is very much appreciated, I wish I had done this 8 years ago.
Laura helped me to identify and craft my personal brand, which I'd never included on my CV previously. In addition, she guided me through how to update my CV & level up my LinkedIn profile for the modern job marketplace, and to make them relevant for my specific industry.
Laura was professional, patient, very helpful and friendly.
In my 1-1 session with Laura, we went through a skills audit to ensure that I was confident in communicating my skills and strengths. Laura was great at encouraging me to dig deeper into my experiences to understand which areas I found the most rewarding and why, and to draw connections to identify my skills and strengths that I had previously underestimated. I now recognize that I can be authentic and push aside the imposter syndrome to embrace my diverse background and communicate the unique value that I bring to the workplace. I feel so much more confident and motivated now, with clear next steps that I can implement in my career journey. Laura was very patient, friendly, and motivating, and I would recommend anyone to get in touch with Laura for guidance in any stage of their career!
Before my Career Coaching with Laura, I felt really lost in my career path as I wasn’t sure anymore if my background fitted enough with my career perspective, everything in front of me was blurry, unclear and confused. I was overwhelmed by “what I was supposed to do” and didn’t know where to start.
At the beginning of the sessions with Project Dialogue, I had to do a lot of introspection and actually put words on what was going wrong with my current perspective. I learnt to identify what was important to me in a job, and in life, as both are importantly related. Laura uses tools that makes you learn a lot about yourself. She helps to provide a healthy ground to talk about yourself. This coaching brought a support into my life when I needed one. Laura is a very professional coach, she understands the struggle of uncertainty in career paths, and she has the right words to identify your doubts and thoughts.
I gained so much during those sessions; strength, self-awareness, confidence, assurance, patience. It made me remind myself that I do have time to figure out how to get to my ‘’dream-job” and that I am also powerful in my decisions. I think it was important to review my core values and remind myself my strengths. We did different self-awareness exercises that helped me to understand myself better. Career Coaching made me realized that there are some non-negotiable criteria in my career perspective that I should not give up on.
I highly recommend working with Laura at Project Dialogue. I have now so much more clarity for my future. I am sure once you get the right support in your life, you can create/build the best version of yourself and make the change you always wanted.
Job Search can be a lonely and frustrating process. Often you never hear back from applications, or get the standard rejection letter. At times like these you need a strong resolve. Having a career coach who is able to get you to focus on a positive mindset and the skills you possess to bring into another role can be beneficial in remaining positive. This was exactly the support I received from Laura. I was unemployed for a year and a half, and wanted guidance on revamping my CV, structuring a cover letter and improving my mindset. Laura delivered on all of these points in a very professional and compassionate manner.
The third interview I went to after our sessions lead to a job offer. I would recommend Laura to anyone looking for a professional career coach.
Laura is an empathetic, skilled career coach and was a true pleasure to work with. As a recent college graduate trying to find my place in the job market, I often found myself overwhelmed. Working with Laura greatly reduced those feelings, and helped me approach my job search with more clarity. She guided me through visualizations to understand my current priorities and aspirations, and helped me develop tangible solutions to accomplish my goals. I can’t recommend Laura enough!
