Happy Clients


Tecla is a natural at coaching and deserves special recognition- she brings out the best in people and helps them understand themselves and articulate who they are. She is focused on the client's agenda and passionate about helping clients to achieve the results they care most about, make a difference and have fun in the process. Working with mostly women leaders to build on their strengths and stretch themselves is her specialty. Ideal clients are ready for their next adventure – to get clarity and challenge themselves to be the best they can be.

She is well versed and certified in various assessment tools, among which MBTI (Myers Briggs), Hogan, DiSC, Firo- B, etc. which she uses for the client's self knowledge and development plans. She is extremely skilled and contemporary at helping people prepare for the next step in their job search and/or transition. She sets people up for success in presenting their best and authentic selves with online presence, LinkedIn profile, resume, networking, marketing and negotiation strategies. 

Her positive approach supports clients as they uncover strengths, insights, celebrate their wins and then find ways to do more of it! Clients appreciate how her insightful questions and use of humor help them to change their conversation and re-frame their situation.  I highly recommend her!

Tecla is a rare find--a career coach who can transform your interviewing skills and strategy and elevate them to the next level. I hired Tecla because several of my colleagues referred to her as the career "game-changer"--and they could not have been more right. I recently had an interview for a very competitive position and she prepared me psychologically, stylistically, and skill wise. She helped me realize my unique brand, positioning and elevator speech and thoroughly prepared me for the interview by role playing and thoughtful reframing. I was impressed with how available she was whenever I needed help--we spoke on the phone several times a day as the interview approached, and each time I came away more focused, prepared, and confident. I was particularly in awe of her energy and attention to detail--no question or concern is too small to escape her attention. The night before my interview, I realized the outfit I had carefully picked out was not quite working. I turned to Tecla for her honest opinion, and even though she was at an event, we spoke at length and she confirmed I would need to change my look slightly--then offered to meet me early the next morning with several appropriate options. She gave me a much more sleek black bag to carry my folders and resumes in, as well as an outstanding statement necklace. I walked into the interview looking and feeling my best--and the first thing the interviewer said to me was to compliment my necklace. All the outstanding preparation with Tecla as my career coach made the interview a total success. 

I recommend Tecla if you are looking to rediscover your brand in a crisp and authentic way. She can take your interviewing strategy and elevator speech and help you find the "wow" factor in your skills, experience, and personality that will ensure tremendous confidence in your approach.
