“Earlier this year I needed help relating to my future career pathway. I was approaching something of a ‘career crossroads’ and sought out Aideen’s professional expertise to help guide me. Aideen was most professional in her approach, establishing our timeframes, parameters and expectations at the outset. From there she facilitated a series of very engaging conversations that challenged my perspectives on life, work and family. This led me to become very aware of my core beliefs, inner values and awaken my real passions. Realizing the importance of these core traits, in turn, brought a move to a role more aligned with more authentic goals. This new role delivers both high levels of job satisfaction and a far more manageable work/life balance. Challenging my perspective helped change my reality. Would recommend the services of FlexiSmart Coaching to anyone at a career crossroads. “
