The purpose for coaching “was to improve ability to sell ideas to a CEO audience, which included CEOs of large multi-national organizations, and in a boardroom setting. Ms Offord’s coaching held the agenda of the outcome sought but opened the client’s self-awareness and energy, and facilitated skill development to reach goals.” “…your perspective and awareness allowed me to see my motivations, my feelings, my fears, my strengths and my values…My energies are much better used today in considering my options and choosing a path, with less fear, to success…conscious about the choices…and can draw quickly on tools I have learned to create an impact, motivate others, or express whatever feeling I think is appropriate at that time…”

“Marg changed my life.”
Chief, Government of Canada
I felt I was stagnating in my career and I wasn’t sure what needed to change in order for me to feel better about my daily work life. Working with Marg helped me to identify the most frustrating aspects of my current situation. Together we worked on how I could change my approach and responses to these issues and thus reduce my frustration. Changing my behaviour is the hard part and that is where the life coach really adds value. Just like any coach, a life coach supports you when you need support, points out where you need to improve your “style” and gives you exercises so you are able to improve your skills. I still have work to do but even after 4 sessions, I feel better about myself and my performance.
