What People Are Saying:
I just wanted to quickly update you on my interview and search to say that I was offered the housing org job this week and officially accepted. Thanks to your guidance I brought a different sensibility to the interview. And I must have done something different, because they offered me a higher level position than the one I initially applied for.
Phoebe, you are simply the best. You empowered me to take charge over my work, validated my ideas, and emphasized the importance of rest. I benefited from your outspoken, pointed communication. It made me feel challenged sometimes, but I always knew you had my back. Working with you has been a wonderful, fulfilling experience that made it easier to focus and forge on, despite the chaos in the background at work. You made me a better worker and person.
I can confidently say that I am a better worker because of Phoebe. During our coaching sessions, I learned how to better navigate difficult work conversations, effectively give upward feedback, and communicate more clearly to avoid friction later on. As a woman in the workplace, my coaching sessions with Phoebe also helped me to feel more empowered to ask for more transparency, challenge assumptions, and to know my worth. There were a number of times Phoebe made me realize that some phrases I was using were displaying my insecurities and she taught me to not only think differently, but communicate in a way that helped me better get across what I wanted. Because of Phoebe I feel like I have a good foundation to become a great first-time manager in the future, and hope to share some of the lessons I learned from her with others.
