HERE ARE SOME PROFESSIONALS JUST LIKE YOU WHO KNEW THEY WANTED A CHANGE BUT DID NOT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE OR HOW TO MAKE THE SHIFT. I HELPED THEM FIND THEIR DIRECTION, GET THEIR CONFIDENCE BACK AND THEY ARE NOW ACTIVELY WORKING IN THEIR NEW FIELDS.
Adenike coached me during my job search. She was always available to me for any kind of help I needed and on numerous occasions, went out of the way to connect me with the right people to aid in my journey. During my job search, I always had peace of mind knowing that I have someone who can empathize, understand and guide me in the best direction.
Earlier this year, I felt a bit stuck. Despite working for a great company and having been promoted into excellent opportunities, I knew that something needed to change. And, I couldn’t get out of my own way to see things clearly and make a decision. I started working with Adenike Makinde, a coach and career strategist. She helped me get clear about what I valued in a career, and what I really wanted to do next. I’m now following a passion and building a real estate business
During our coaching time together, I was encouraged by the attention that Adenike paid to my needs, but she took specific care to ask me more in depth questions for two reasons:
To make sure she was advising me based on her clear understanding of what I just shared and
To get ME to understand where the origin of what I was feeling may have started. By doing this it opened me up to some revelations about myself and how I viewed my successes and failures and how to use those realizations to move myself forward.
I felt confident after working with Adenike that I could handle many difficult situations both with the interview and general networking, which I was nervous of doing before.
