Career Assessment Testing
Deborah Brown-Volkman

 

“My goal in life at the time was to become Mr. America. I’ll never forget making that trip to California with everyone telling me ‘You’ll be back in six months.’ Sometimes the closest people are the ones, without knowing it, that can be the most critical and devastating.” (Jake Steinfeld, President and Founder of Body By Jake and author of "I’ve Seen a Lot of Naked People and They Got Nothing on You!")

"Surround yourself with those who get what you are going through. Going to someone who doesn’t understand, can only make you feel worse and misunderstood." (Deborah Brown-Volkman, President of Surpass Your Dreams, Inc.)

"Does Coaching Work? Yes. Good coaches provide a truly important service. They tell you the truth when no one else will." ( Jack Welch, co-author of the best selling book "Winning," and former CEO of General Electric)


Why Is Coaching a Vital Investment?
 

As human beings we are unable to see ourselves objectively. But, we crave objectivity anyway. We walk around wondering why our careers and lives are not working. We question why we are unable to make better choices for ourselves.

The value of a coach is we bring to your problem a perspective that you cannot achieve on your own, namely: We are on the outside, looking in. You’re on the inside, looking out.

When you hire me, you get honest, direct feedback and answers to questions.  You are able to clear out what’s not working, so you can you make room for what you really want. You get a fresh perspective and a new way of thinking. You will finally have the tools to make decisions that can change the direction your career and life are taking. This is not a false promise. This is what my clients have been telling me for years.

Since coaching is a partnership, ask yourself if you find it valuable to collaborate, to have another viewpoint and to be asked to consider new perspectives. Also, ask yourself if you are ready to devote the time and the energy to making real changes in your life.

The fact that you are seeking help and are seriously considering using your hard earned money to work with me, tells me that you are ready to take action. I applaud you greatly for taking an important first step towards creating a career and live you love. Good for you!


MORE TESTIMONIALS:

"Investing in myself and using your services has been one of the greatest rates of return that I have ever gotten."

”For anybody who is wondering if they can afford to work with you, I would say if they are serious about their career, especially in this economy, they can't afford not to work with you.”

"Your services have been worth every penny."

"Deborah, My Skype interview went very well yesterday. I used the answer we discussed about why I've been temping so long. It worked! I'm their top candidate! I have to take two online assessments tomorrow, and then they'll reach a decision on Monday. I have a good feeling about this one! Thank you and I'll keep you posted."

 


Life is not about reaching your goals alone. Results are harder to achieve and the journey is prolonged when you are working on your goals by yourself. Plus, having an outside perspective and expert speeds up the process.

I’ve helped thousands of people.  I've helped people succeed in jobs, get out of ruts, win jobs, and change careers while working full time.

My clients have gone from, "I know I should do this." to "I am so glad I did this." My goal is to have the same words come out of your mouth.


In addition to years of experience working with hundreds of clients on their careers and lives, you will be working with a coach who has been awarded the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) designation from the International Coach Federation (ICF). The ICF is the regulatory body and the gold standard in the world of coaching. This designation means I have demonstrated high ethical standards, and have met rigorous coaching requirements based on education and professional coaching experience.
