Here’s what some of our clients have to say about coaching with the McAloon Group

Like feeling frustrated? Stalled out? Unfulfilled? Enjoy re-creating the same pathologies in your professional and personal life? If so, then move along and don’t stop to do a session with Elizabeth.

If you want to change your life, improve pretty much anything you put your mind to, call this woman. But be warned, this isn’t a cute collection of life hacks: You will be transformed. —Lynn Melander Moore, Development Lead at Mozilla Foundation

entrepreneur coachingI enthusiastically recommend the services of The McAloon Group. I am forever thankful for Elizabeth’s guidance and support in pursuing my lifelong dream career.

After 20 years as a senior partner in the management consulting industry, I was nearing a crossroads in my career and looking for a change. In addition to helping me understand the difficult job environment of 2009 and what I would need to do to prepare for a very competitive job search, Elizabeth opened my eyes to possibilities I had only daydreamed about in my old job.

Elizabeth is phenomenal at helping to create options and overcome obstacles in your mind, while also providing a practical view of what it takes to pursue those options. Her advice is grounded in years of experience. Her homework is challenging, yet extremely eye-opening. You learn a lot more about yourself throughout the process than you would have expected going in, which in my case, led to the perfect career pursuit. I am now happily and gainfully pursuing my passion.

I found Elizabeth quite approachable, easy to talk to, empathetic to my situation and knowledgeable about what it takes to be successful in this difficult job market. I don’t think I would be where I am today had I not had the opportunity to work with Elizabeth last year. Whether you are looking to change careers or advance in your current career, Elizabeth’s services have proven to me to be invaluable. —Dave Goldson, Managing Director at Slalom Consulting

 

I am living my dream as a result of working with Elizabeth. I don’t know that there is anything more powerful than that statement. I hired Elizabeth to help me figure out a calling that I had experienced since I was four years old. I left and extremely successful career as a pharmaceutical sales rep and created a business that I love.

Elizabeth challenged me and pushed my beliefs about what what possible. She is a brilliant coach and I am clear that my first step in creating this amazing life I have was hiring her.

Not only to I own my own business, but I have a weekly YouTube TV show, and have been featured in national media publications. As I look back on all the steps it took to get where I am, it all started with that phone call to Elizabeth and the work we did together.

I highly recommend her work. —Kendrick Shope, Creator of Authentic Selling & Sales Coach

Elizabeth is a sharp, thoughtful coach who goes way beyond the “one size fits all” approach. At a time when I was struggling to maintain my optimism during a job search, she helped me focus my thinking not only with regard to improving my interview skills, but also for taking a longer view of what I actually hoped to get out of my next job. She helped me come up with insightful interview questions that were tailor-made for my profession, and since I started using them, I’ve never failed to get “That’s a great question!” from the interviewer – and significantly more thoughtful responses than those I’d been used to.

Close to a year after being let go from my previous job, I’d had dozens of phone interviews and a handful of final-rounders, but no offers. The first job offer came within a few weeks of two phone sessions with Elizabeth, and she has offered invaluable advice since then as well. Working with her has been worth every penny I paid. —Jeffrey Anbinder, Experienced Development Professional

 

Elizabeth is a fantastic career coach that works to develop a detailed plan of action for her clients. She always provided great insight to an issue and created client specific assignments for every meeting we had. Most of all, Elizabeth helped me stay focused and calm during a drawn out job search in these tough economic times.

I owe Elizabeth a great debt of gratitude because without her help I probably would have strayed from a successful, but long term, job search in order to make short term financial gains in a mismatched employment opportunity. Her fees are reasonable and so worth it in the long run. Thanks to Elizabeth, I am on the career track I finally want to be on. —Josh Levin, Community Liaison at New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer

career transition coachingElizabeth is one of the most decent, hard working and insightful business consultants that I have had the privilege to work with. If you want to improve personally and have your business grow, contact her. This endorsement is genuine and unsolicited. —George Goldhoff, President/CEO at PURE Canadian Gaming

 

 

Elizabeth is a great career coach. One of the best attributes about her is how she changed my perspective. In fact, by working with her I was able to see what I considered my weaknesses to be my differentiators. I continue to work with her and I would highly recommend her. —Dev Gupta, Business Process Manager at Fresenius Medical Care

Despite having good qualifications, I was ready for a career change and was a bit clueless about where to begin in the modern “online” age of job hunting. Elizabeth helped me brand myself, network online, and negotiate. I found her very honest, open, and upfront. She has an exceptional ability to notice attitudes and behaviors in me I was not fully aware of until working with her.

I have transitioned my career, am paid well, and have a job that I like so much it makes me dread weekends! Elizabeth was instrumental in this transition and I would highly recommend her services to anyone. —Raymond Rumpf, Professor, 3D printed circuits & electromagnetics, micro/nano-photonics, computational EM

She is very practical and action oriented, with a focus on helping you make good things happen in your life and your career. Very importantly, Elizabeth is a highly experienced and expert coach. This is her career choice, in contrast to so many others out there who jumped into coaching only because their intended career hit a dead end. She’s passionate about it and great at it. If you invest in coaching, go with a dedicated professional… someone like Elizabeth. One final note: All my coaching sessions with Elizabeth were conducted by phone, and she made that work very well for me. Based on my experience, I’d say you could benefit from working with Elizabeth no matter where you live and work. —Tom Varian, Executive Writer & Communications Consultant

Elizabeth demonstrated that career counseling at its best is both an art and a skill: an art in her keen appraisal of my talents and limitations, my strengths and weaknesses; a skill in suggesting practical, achievable steps I could take to leverage the things I do well to dig my way out of the career rut in which I felt deeply stuck. Since working with Elizabeth, I have been much more successful in my career. She is, simply, wonderful at what she does. —Ezra Goldstein, co-owner at Community Bookstore

 

I am grateful to Elizabeth for her relentless rigor in holding up the mirror that allowed me the first glimpses of new awareness. With competence, humor and care she invited and supported me as I began to dig in corners of myself that became the path forward. And now as I begin to make my new offers, she has shared freely and selflessly from her extensive experience to help me help others. I recommend that if sustainable change is what you seek, you owe it to yourself to initiate a conversation with Elizabeth. —Eva Krieger, PhD, Director Organizational Development at Proxymity

sales coachingI was fortunate enough to find Elizabeth during a very challenging time in my career, and boy am I glad that I hired her as my coach.

My most recent body of work has received accolades in both the artistic and political worlds. —Ara Lucia Ashburne, from Concept to Completion without Compromise

I really didn’t know what I was looking for when I found Elizabeth. I wanted to start a business in a field that was related to my career but required knowledge and resources that I didn’t have a clue how to tap into. Elizabeth knew! She knew exactly what resources I needed, and they have since been essential to my new business. She also helped me break down the project so that I was able to get it successfully off the ground. She is very good at “presenting the possibilities in a way that makes them possible.” —Mary Marino, Designer, Writer, Blogger (Fashion, Jewelry, Lifestyle)
