MY STORY

Who is Amy Berenson?

On a cold, rainy day in late November, the last employee walked out of the Boston-based tech start-up I was working in. I was now laying off the employees I had helped recruit and hire as HR Director. Things had gone south; little did I realize at the time that it would lead me to my True North.

Fast forward-–I knew I was qualified for many HR positions but not one of them interested me any longer. So I wrote a viscerally honest description of the aspects of the “perfect” job for me.

A few weeks later, a friend asked me three simple questions about my recent job.

What energized me? What did I miss the most? What was I most proud of?

I told him I had loved the times I helped employees discover their strengths, craft their successes, and take their best course of action. Turned out, this friend was a life coach (a profession I knew little about at the time), and he recommended I look into becoming a coach.

After researching, I chose to become certified by the Co-Active Training Institute, a highly respected coaching company. Through the process, I discovered that coaching is a solution to the kind of uncertainty many of us experienced in high school, college and beyond.–What is “it” I want to do with my life?

I am inspired to help people find their way and my life has never been the same. I knew I had found my “it.”

Oh, and that job description I’d written? It perfectly described the aspects of a life coach! Huh! I am grateful everyday I’ve found my calling and feel honored to help others find the same.

Can you believe the things you say to yourself?

Would you speak to someone else the same way to speak to yourself? Eeks. I don’t think so. Do any of these phrases sound familiar? “You aren’t good at that.” “You will never be as successful as her.” “Who do you think you are?” “You’ll never be THAT attractive.” “You’ll never get a decent job. They’ll figure out you are an imposter.” “You should give up right now. Don’t even try.” Put simply, “You aren’t[…]

Real Results – From a Real Client’s Perspective

When the time is right for client to end a series of coaching sessions, part of the process is to help them reflect on what they’ve learned and how far they have come. It is also a moment to acknowledge their personal progress. Clients are asked to answer a series of “Completion Questions” and I am sharing this particular Completion Form from a recent client (with approval of course). My hope in sharing it is[…]

COVID Causing You to Rethink Your Job/Career?

Here’s what to do. Many of us have been working from home, alone or spending time with our kids, our spouse or significant other, maybe even our parents—and actually enjoying it. We’ve enjoyed the easy conversations, getting to know neighbors, friends and relatives at a different level. And maybe they have even liked being with US as well. Perhaps that work/life balance feels more in line with what fulfills you—more time for family and friends,[…]
