Going Beyond Success Testimionials
Honest, direct, succinct, hands on, experiential, priceless.
We recently held a career event featuring Patricia Wall. By doing this we felt we could attract people where our career may be a fit for them. The attendance at Patricia’s event was unprecedented in that we had at least 10 times the number of people we would normally attract.
Many people stayed behind to ask questions and talk to representatives from our company as well as with Patricia. Follow-up was very positive with a high number of people requesting information on careers with Investors Group as well as Patricia’s programs. It certainly has given us something to build on in future events. Also by recording the event we have a great marketing package we can now use for future events. We have already booked Patricia for a spring workshop.
I know that working with Trish in our business building efforts will yield results beyond our expectations as we are offering people something with no strings attached. The goodwill created from these events is beyond measure. I know that we will attract the right people to our corporation and everyone will benefit. People will have careers they love and clients will benefit from working with quality consultants who are generally concerned with their clients well being. And as a Division Director I will get to work with people who see the role as a fulfillment of who they are – it doesn’t get much better than that.
I have worked with many types of people. One example I can think of recently: my supervisor is having a bad day and is not coping well. I can tell because she is swearing loudly in her office and has no patience with anyone who approaches her. I am normally affected by the people around me and find her to be disturbing because her office is next to mine. I apply the tools I have learned. I find she calms down, as do I, and later apologizes for her behavior.
I have also had the experience of being bullied. Nothing I did was right and when it was right my boss never gave me credit. I was about to take it to a grievance board when I realized the whole thing was taking its toll on me. I was a wreck. I stopped the grievance. I used my tools to change the dynamic. My troubles were over. With this work I have changed every area of my life for the better.
I have held very stressful positions in my work life that have caused me great anxiety at times both for my mind and body. Through my work with Trish I have achieved a work life that is still interesting and challenging, yet for the most part stress-free. Our work together has been evolutionary, as she helped me to understanding the reasons for my behavior, recognizing when it is happening, then designed practices to allay it, where I finally came to experiencing little to no anxiety. My mind experiences calm now and my body is getting stronger every day – previous unknown states to me. I am grateful for our serendipitous meeting and her desire to share her healing gift which has gone a long way towards making me whole.
Following your workshop I have put many of the exercises into daily practice. I use the tools prior to client appointments. I have found that my appointments with potential clients have changed dramatically. The appointments are much more positive, productive and co-creative. The clients engage in the conversation much more thoughtfully and the questions and comments I make seem to just show up at the appropriate times. We connect more fully and I can feel the positive energy of the interaction. I can “feel” them relax and develop a more positive energy around their financial situation, and jointly we develop potential solutions and ideas that address their main goals and concerns around money, and of course, their lives. They felt as if we understood their needs perfectly and the solutions presented were perfect for them. Not once did I feel like I was selling, it was the most wonderful feeling, knowing I was providing the individual with exactly what they wanted.
This work has and will continue to change my life, my struggle with client interactions is gone and I trust that all that I need will show up if I stay true to who I ‘be.’ And I know this is just the beginning.
I have never felt so good about myself, or so sure of my ability to change, until learning with you.
It just keeps getting better.
