Extend Coaching is the literal best thing that has ever happened to me.
Becca brings peace where there is chaos.
Becca deserves the highest recommendation I can give.
I wish I had hired Extend as a coach when I first started. Who knows where my practice would be now.
You completely changed the trajectory of my business. I owe you.
Becca challenged me to move from my comfort level and helped energize my career.
Working with Becca has provided insight and balance while also making me more confident.
With my long-standing job coming to an end, I felt stuck and uncertain about my next steps. Little did I know that this retreat would bring about a remarkable breakthrough…Stepping away from the daily grind and immersing myself in a serene setting allowed me to be fully present and focus solely on my journey.
Stepping into this new role created new challenges for me. I needed to stop doing the things that had gotten me here and begin to create the environment for everyone else to do those things, but that was hard to do.
It was time for me to figure out what was going to change because I couldn’t continue to live the way I was living…I unearthed new insights into myself, like what drives me and what scares me. More than that, I came up with a plan to modify my future to allow me to say no, and to continue to show up powerfully.
We acknowledged that our personal backgrounds very much inform our professional lives and drew strength from that to build a plan – a real plan, with actionable items, for moving forward. And I found myself among the most amazing group of women. We are gently holding each other accountable to this day.
I came to realize how much I craved structure and stability in my life, and how much I missed my family. I also realized how much I had been holding on to “the image” of being part of a start-up and how much I feared letting others down.
Before Team Coaching I would tell you that our team was strong. I didn’t realize how strong we could actually be. Because we are mainly a remote workforce we need to be over the top in terms of trust, understanding, and communications. Working with Extend, we were given tools to address disagreements so all members could feel fully heard, we could see new options, and make decisions faster. Extend’s ability to help us see how our conversations were limiting our interactions with each other and our staff had tremendous impact on us as individuals and on the company as a whole.
I have worked my way through the organization from the entry-level to the CEO. I did that through hard work, being known for getting things done, and understanding the business. Stepping into this new role created new challenges for me. I needed to stop doing the things that had gotten me here and begin to create the environment for everyone else to do those things, but that was hard to do. I actually liked getting things done! Through coaching, I have realized that keeping a $100,000 issue from happening is more important than solving a $100 issue in a fire drill. I now save the day before the day needs to be saved.
We had owned our business for 2 years when Covid hit. As a fledgling organization, we struggled with what Covid meant for the future of our busines. Through our Strategic Planning with Extend, we were able to identify the immediate needs to get through Covid and create a path for strategic growth that allows us to live within our values. We just won a major job that will catapult us to the next level, thanks to Extend and focusing on our values.
As partners, we had lost our way and we were both wondering how the company could go on with both of us. We were often angry and frustrated. Through coaching, we figured out how to leave the past behind us and communicate with each other in a new way. Since then, we have not only recharged the partnership, we have made a corporate decision to grow the company exponentially over the next 10 years — and we are using Extend to help get us there.
I was a strong, career-driven Millennial who was part owner of a start-up company, but underneath I knew something was not quite right. Through coaching, I came to realize how much I craved structure and stability in my life, and how much I missed my family. I also realized how much I had been holding on to “the image” of being part of a start-up and how much I feared letting others down. After working with Extend, I found the courage to leave the start-up and move back to my home town. I cannot explain to you how different I am than I was two years ago. I’m still a strong, career-driven Millennial, now with stability, a steady job and my family by my side. I thank Extend every day.
I always admired Becca as a no-nonsense, driven executive. She became my coach and helped me migrate from middle management to C-suite. We strong women often do not get constructive or honest feedback in our circle. I highly recommend Becca. She is professional and effective. She helped me achieve better balance and communicate more effectively with executive leaders. She challenged me to move from my comfort level and helped energize my career.
