Lin makes you feel safe in her presence and paradoxically because of that, encourages you step out of your comfort zone. One key realization I got working with Lin as my Personal Life / Reiss Profile® Coach is that my need for affirmation prevented me from performing at work and building deeper relationships with my friends. This breakthrough opened up more Happiness in my life ever since.
She first mentored me in my coaching journey since 2009. Back then, she helped me gain clarity in who I was as a Coach and helped me to breakthrough what was stopping me from connecting with people. Since then, I have gained more confidence in dealing with people. Right now, I run my own business, and the coaching skills I honed through her have helped me tremendously in understanding my employees, keeping them happy and performing optimally.
Talking things out always helps. But talking to the right person takes it to a whole new level. This is where I enjoy working with Lin the most. Her appreciation and passion help me to find my own voice and see things from a different perspective. It just makes the whole coaching process more satisfying and clearer. I always come to a better understanding of things and a more empowering solution after each coaching session with Lin.
