My clients land jobs.

Hear what they have to say.

The market is booming.  

 

The investment you make in yourself pays off in spades for years to come.

This past year I decided to take some sabbatical time off of working full-time for a transformation of my own making. Soon after, I was drawn to a SecondAct Women’s event where Chelle was listed as a speaker. Immediately, I related to her story of transformation and decided to participate in her 8-week Positive Intelligence program. 

 

The benefits I derived while working with Chelle were amazingly unexpected and timely as I rested from my “high achieving” ways to better manage my health and emotional well-being. In the process, she has partnered and encouraged me to rediscover my authentic self and bring forward into this next season to maintain work-life balance. I am thankful to be adding new mental fitness tools to my toolbox that will help me improve relationships and pursue meaningful work. 

 

I would highly recommend Chelle to anyone looking to transform their own story.

I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity of working with Chelle during a transformative time in my career. Our conversations as well as participation in her Positive Intelligence program allowed me to take meaningful action in the pursuit of a new role. She helped me get my confidence back.

 

Chelle is passionate about helping people achieve their goals. I highly recommend her Positive Intelligence program as well as her coaching. I have appreciated her immensely through my recent transition.

"Know your worth, and add 10%." This is the advice from one of my very successful clients, Charles Sullivan, who just landed a new role with a collaborative, flexible, and entrepreneurial organization.

 

He almost DOUBLED his pay!

Chelle conducted a coaching program which I participated in that had a profound and lasting effect on my career. 


During our program, Chelle was able to facilitate and coach us not just through career tactics, but, instead gave us the tools to more confidently manage our lives, our relationships and ourselves. I highly recommend her as a professional coach.

I recently completed an 8 week program on Positive Intelligence led by Chelle. As the program leader/coach, Chelle did an amazing job of tapping into the unique needs of all of us hyperachievers in the group. 

 

Before doing this program, I was feeling restless and bored and unsure about the future. As the weeks progressed, I learned how to say goodbye to negative thoughts that no longer served me, increase empathy for myself and others, improve my focus and lead from the heart. 

 

Thank you, Chelle, for getting me on the path to stronger mental fitness.

Chelle is a rare and special breed of human and coach. I found her to be especially skillful in the area of career coaching with the specialty of an executive job search. She is a grand connector, mentor, and cheerleader. Her knowledge of talent acquisition best practices is exceptional. This expertise gives her unique insight in how her clients can best succeed. This creates an organic framework based on the client’s goals infused with Chelle’s experience of what potential employers are seeking. The result is a strategy where both parties, (job seeker and employer), successfully meet for a win-win. 

 

However, Chelle’s value exceeds that of an exceptional career coach. Chelle has a deep awareness of the metaphysical and the difficult-to-describe forces that guide our personal decisions about how to best succeed in life. This includes the ability to help her clients stay grounded, balanced, engaged, and committed without burning out. 

 

I found Chelle to be one of my most influential teachers; someone who helped me stay centered, vibrant, and alive with the belief of future success. She helped me realize that success. She is a master of alignment between aspiration and realization; a connector of the inner self and the professional self. She also helped me realize they are one in the same. 

 

I am truly grateful that I had the opportunity to work with Chelle during the most pivotal professional transition of my career.

After the roller coaster ride of 2020, I was ready for a 'reset' in 2021. Chelle was instrumental in making it happen. With Chelle I was able to come up with my 'reset' goals:

  • Increasing clarity and confidence

  • Focus on Mental Fitness and Positive Intelligence

  • Overcoming Burnout

  • Imposter Syndrome and tools to overcome it

It looks like a big overwhelming list, but Chelle helped me break it down to make small incremental changes with the Positive Intelligence (PQ) program and coaching.

Chelle has the special touch! With Chelle's coaching, I'm back to having a spring in my step and excited for each new day. I've dramatically decreased 2nd guessing myself, increased my positivity, and feel less stressed.

After using a national career counseling service that was ineffective, I switched to Chelle and found the right fit.

 

Chelle helped me understand the clear way to land a great job-- keep searching for a company's pain points and/or growth points. I was looking at jobs both in and out of my previous industry, and with Chelle's help I was able to identify several pain and growth points in two different industries. This is what landed me two offers in the same week! Chelle encouraged me to use all methods of communication- sometimes email works, but a good old-fashioned phone call works wonders. People crave connection. I'm thrilled in the new direction this next chapter in my life will take me.

 

Chelle provides a comprehensive and unique game plan just for you. No cookie-cutter-one-size-fits-all with Chelle. She listens intently to your goals, strengths, passions, and fears to help you understand yourself better, which also helps you find your ideal job. A constant encourager, she is prompt in returning calls and is incredibly accessible.

 

Her resume writing is truly amazing; I received many compliments on my resume while interviewing. From resume writing to job acceptance-- she is the whole package. My one regret is that I did not find her earlier in my search. It is absolutely money well spent.

I originally set out searching for someone to help me with my resume when I found Chelle. At the time, I wasn’t totally sure what I needed but I knew I was looking for a change. Upon meeting Chelle, I felt an instant connection. I signed up for a resume refresh as well as career coaching.

The honest truth is working with Chelle is one of the best investments I have made in myself, professionally. Chelle helped me develop a super clear vision of what I wanted in my career, which has given me so much confidence. She also helped me totally revamp my resume and it now actually reflects the work I did and my professional accomplishments.

 

It’s clear that Chelle genuinely cares about the people she works with and she was incredible at helping me find myself. I am sure that the skills I’ve gained in resume writing and the focus I have in what I want out of my career will serve me well for many years to come. Chelle is absolutely the kind of person you want in your corner.

​I had the pleasure of working with Chelle Johnson for pre-interview preparation. She is an exceptional mentor and expert in her craft. Her unique coaching style and her honest, unbiased feedback.

 

If you’re seeking to hire a career coach who delivers personalized tips to master the art of interviewing, with the innate ability to connect seamlessly with her clients, Chelle is that person.

Before working with Chelle, I really needed to get clarity on my career, to contemplate and discover where my true self would flourish in. I fortunately met Chelle and discovered that we had worked at the same company although not at the same time. We respected a lot of the same people and we clicked immediately.

 

While working with Chelle, I found an unwavering ally, an unrelenting partner in my quest.

Chelle has an innate sense of the unity of the universe, she sees the bigger picture and is passionate about my career in a manner that brings energy to me and belief in my quest.

Chelle’s resume writing ability is great because she knows how to say a lot in a few words. She gets networking and the essentials of building a career, she also gets human fallibility and has the patience and humility to get into your shoes and help. She genuinely cares!

 

As a result of having Chelle as my career coach I am in a better place than I was and am distinctly better off because I found a friend.

Before working with Chelle, I felt stressed and completely stuck; unsure that my career path was the one that I wanted to be on. I had interviewed a number of different Career Coaches, all of which were highly qualified including Chelle.

 

I knew Chelle would not only give me the results I was looking for, but also take the time to understand who I am as a person and what I truly need to succeed and reach my goals.

 

While working with Chelle, I discovered strategies and insights that only through her professional experience and expertise were able to give me.

 

I felt more confident going forth and tackling the obstacles that are relevant to finding work in today’s climate. As a result I not only feel like I have someone on my side who’s rooting for my success, but I feel like I can move forward with landing that job that I’ve always wanted.

 

She’s given me the tools for success and the confidence that I have everything I need to reach my goals.

 

I feel so fortunate to have found her as a coach, she’s more than worth the investment!
