If you are curious about the work I do, below is a sample based on my clients’ sessions today.
Today, I helped…
my client who works in HR for Accenture, discover her purpose & vision for her next career in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Justice.
➤ She left the session lit up and excited about some tangible action steps to take in the next few months.
my client who is Senior Director in Product Marketing for a tech company uncover her natural leadership style, why it clashes with her boss’s, and what to do about it at her next meeting.
➤ She left the session finally understanding the strengths of her leadership style, why her manager does not see and value them (as they are different than his), and what to do to address it.
my client, Senior Product Designer, successful, smart and a high achiever who tends to repress her emotions which causes her stress and fatigue at work and life. We did a powerful process to help her learn to welcome her emotions more, and use them as a leveraging tool in her career/life, instead of a hindrance.
➤ She left the session with some internal shifts and practices to welcome/leverage her emotions instead of repressing them.
My clients’ visions are coming true and Covid did not stop them!
Lately, I’ve received many updates and celebrations from clients who are making their dreams come true. I’m getting so many of them that I can’t hardly keep up or share them all…
There are clients who have worked with me in 2020 during the pandemic.
The visions I helped them clarify during our coaching work are happening!
Here are a few of them: ✅ A director of marketing and communications with 20 years of experience and a passion for fashion just started an online fashion store—I will share it with you as soon as she gives me the green light—, has taken a few small business clients who need assistance with marketing and presentation coaching, and is experimenting working remotely with her husband, which is part of their dream lifestyle.
✅ A successful software consultant with 20 years of experience, initially depressed and feeling like a failure, was able to see his work in a totally new way. As a result, he grew quickly in his executive leadership role while embarking on a new career as a coach and trainer.
✅ A project manager with 12+ years of experience applied for the health coaching certification program she wanted and just made an offer on a house in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania where she moved with her husband to be closer to her family.
✅ An actuary turned data scientist living in San Francisco with her husband achieved her long-time desire to move back to England to be with family and friends and is getting closer to buying a house in London.
✅ A public relations and communications specialist, initially stuck, stressed, and demoralized in her work, became so clear about her strengths, true passions, and vision for her career through the coaching process that she was able to seize an opportunity for a new fulfilling career that came right in front of her. This work will allow her to fulfill her purpose of stewardship and keeping the legacy of the past for future generations.
All of these are visions we clarify together during the coaching process.
All of these clients started working with me 8 to 12 months ago in the midst of the pandemic.
Covid did not stop them!

P.S. This is what Ryan says about his experience working with me.
“After 20 years in the tech industry and 2 major depressions, I was finally ready to take seriously the fact that I didn’t love my work like supposedly people did. I had been successful in consulting, building a new offering from the ground up, creating a new organization around it and selling over $150M of new clients in ~3 years and yet I was depressed and felt like I was a complete failure.
Isabelle’s process of identifying the “personal blueprint” (focussed on the “authentic self”), using tools very different from the traditional Myers-Briggs personality typing, brought tremendous insight into aspects of my personality that were huge assets and strengths that I had previous taken for granted or barely noticed and which had really powered much my success. It also helped me to become comfortable with what didn’t come naturally to me in a way no other personal development work I’d ever done (StrengthsFinders, MBTI, etc) had been able to do. For the first time, I was able to take seriously the often extremely powerful feedback I had gotten from others and fully accept that the aspects of myself – loving working to serve other people, coaching, mentoring and charting ambitious visions for teams around me – that I had previously overlooked, undervalued or simply denied (thanks to long help beliefs from childhood about what I was and wasn’t) were very real and in fact powerful. This sent me on a journey of self-development that ended in not abandoning my career at all, but being able to see it in a completely new way. That has allowed me to access resources I din’t know I had and grow immensely and quickly in my executive leadership role while at the same time also embarking on a new career simultaneously.”
In the midst of the stressful times we are experiencing in the US and worldwide, I want to continue bringing light and inspiration to you, while also acknowledging all the emotions and challenges you may be experiencing.
In these times, I encourage you to feel and welcome all your emotions, get supported in community, be gentle with yourself while continuing to celebrate life.
It’s why I want to share with you the success of some of my fabulous clients in 2020.
By courageously stepping into their career callings, they are making the world a better place for all of us.
