Successful authors need a coach

 

People often comment that I shouldn't need a coach because I am so organised. I am organised because Geraldine helped me find a balance in my life between work and play. She coached me to develop strategies to reach the short and long-term goals I set. And she guided me in developing business and life-plans so I could live the dream I had always had, to be a full-time writer. I'm not at all embarrassed now when I'm labelled an overachiever! I'm delighted.

I’ve worked with Geraldine over a few  years and have really enjoyed it. I went to see her about a specific professional decision and then asked her to help me with some broader planning. Geraldine helped me to prepare a vision using my ideas, hopes and dreams then to refocus and find practical steps to achieve it.

 

Geraldine is well prepared irrespective of whether I am doing strategic work or have a specific issue I want to work through. Whatever we do, I always gain valuable insights about myself. I am amazed at her ability to keep us on track and find a positive, constructive way to approach every aspect of our work. And happily, there are also a few laughs!!    

 

I always leave a session, feeling inspired, positive and committed to taking actions towards a goal (or two)! We all need someone to hear us, ask the right questions to let us critique our ideas, provide wise suggestions and encourage us at times - Geraldine does this with humour, kindness and professionalism.

Geraldine - It is with the utmost gratitude that I thank you for coaching me. I learned so much and made progress in both my personal life and my coaching business in working with you. I am so glad you are out there in the world making a difference with your masterful coaching abilities and your bright spirit.

The trust and integrity that Geraldine deploys in each session makes a safe place to muse, contemplate and more importantly, develop strategies to achieve your goals. Her honesty in her approach to accountability of self is refreshing and only inspires you forward. The honesty results in recognition of the underlying motivators for behaviour and changes the way you think about the aspects of your life. Certainly more powerful than the 'intellectual only' approach to strategising your desired outcomes.

 

I highly recommend this clever, articulate woman who has the appropriate splash of humour to keep it all sane and enjoyable.

Geraldine was fantastic for both my professional and personal growth and development. Our sessions together gave me a new lease on my current role, together with a strategic plan to move toward my career goals. I have now gone on to a bigger and better career pathway.

Star Monde Communications

 

People say

I have experienced the excellent communication services provided by Geraldine Star, now of Star Monde. Geraldine successfully scoped the communication needs and delivered a comprehensive internal and external communication plan for a complex, high profile Government organisation of approximately 1,000 staff.

Geraldine increased awareness and positive communication outcomes for the organisation. A new corporate image and branding were introduced to reflect the corporate vision and values and these helped the agency to gain Australian and international recognition. The comprehensive communications program developed included media and communications campaigns targeted for different audiences; issues management strategies; stakeholder management; and executive spokesperson training as part of effective internal communication protocols and mechanisms.
