Emilie Schaum - HR Director

“The Our Corporate Life ezine content is relevant, interesting, and tight. The ideas and recommendations offered often resonate with me as they align with my philosphy and the practices in which I have engaged over the course of my HR career. When I contacted Amanda to determine if I might share Our Corporate Life ezine with our staff and what the associated cost would be I was surprised to learn that Our Corporate Life were happy to have us use it gratis (with proper attribution of course!) If you are a leader and not currently reading Our Corporate Life ezine you should be.”

×
Tanya Jishi - Team Leader, PR

“Coaching helps you objectively evaluate your work style and behaviors so that you can focus your efforts on areas that will help you the most. Learning how to tailor my interactions and respond to my audience has increased my ability to “command” a room…and my confidence in general. The experience was extremely beneficial and I truly believe I have become a better a leader and team player as a result.”

×
Meg Alexander - Public Relations and Communications

“[Coaching] helped me focus my attention on my own performance and goals, instead of being pulled in a million directions. I realized that in order to be the leader and colleague I strive to be I need to be fulfilled and satisfied. Amanda is an incredibly helpful, independent sounding board who helped me navigate difficult staffing/management challenges and experiment with various management approaches that got results while remaining sensitive to the different work styles of my colleagues. Coaching is a great opportunity to reflect on professional performance and career goals while working with someone who can help guide the process.”

Kristine Nash-Wong - Health Solutions Consultant

“Years after I originally worked with Amanda I continue to use her advice as a guiding principle – and often “hear her” in my head (in a good way!) She keeps you focused on practical strategies that work for both you and your business. Occasionally I’ll reach out for a “strategy session” and find I consistently come away with new insights. And most importantly – she has a ridiculously sublime sense of humor.”

×
Sandra Schler - Account Manager

“I attended a presentation that Amanda Mitchell made at an NJ Ad Club event. It was the best time spent in a very long time! All the tools we use regularly for our clients are at our disposal, but we so rarely focus them on ourselves, our own careers, and our own happiness. When I left the event, I was extremely energized to make some changes I’ve been considering for a while, but never clarified in my own mind. In a very clear, friendly way, Amanda provided the tools to help me focus on what I really want, and who I really am outside of my job title. I highly recommend Amanda’s presentation to everyone wanting insight into themselves and how to make that work on a professional level.”

×
Lorraine Pastore - SVP, Management Supervisor

“I have found the Our Corporate Life ezine very worthwhile. It’s practical, relevant and almost like having a ‘virtual mentor’. Personally I think people should pay for this content—it’s much better than most of what’s out there and I always get at least one good idea, reminder or insight. Plus it’s quick and fun to read!!!”

×
Bill McElhiney - Freelance Copywriter

“I’m an advertising copywriter and have been reading the free e-zines (ie, electronic newsletters) from Our Corporate Life since they started. I recommend them for anyone who works in advertising/marketing (I think the e-mail to sign up is ourcorporatelife.com/subscribe). The topics for the main features are always about something that impacts my life in small or big ways. I’ve used some of the practical tips to help my career or improve the quality of my working life (both as an on-staff and freelance writer). Then there are articles that just provide great food for thought re career. The good news is that the newsletters are short and well written (yes, that’s coming from a professional writer) and you don’t have to wade through lots of content to get to the key and helpful points/information.”

Lorie McElroy - Life Sciences & Technical Writer

“Want to maximize your time spent on LinkedIn? I highly recommend Amanda’s webinar. For both newbies and busy folks alike, the free webinar provides practical and strategic advice about the site’s many strengths and capabilities. The live-demo walks you through the nuts and bolts of setting up and managing your profile and the various options available to optimize your LinkedIn experience. Most importantly, Amanda explains how to craft a profile that expresses your unique professional brand. Watch this webinar if you want your profile to tell a compelling story–and to be more than just another page in an online directory.

Sue Tougas - Director of Sponsorships & Promotions Marketing

“I’ve had the good fortune of working with Amanda over the past year and a half. She’s been instrumental in helping me navigate my way through a considerable professional challenge. Her counsel, knowledge and ability to quickly assess situations and provide positive solutions, has been priceless. In addition, her business acumen, thoughtful analysis, results driven approach – and I must include “quick wit” are just some of the qualities that make her an exceptional coach! I highly recommend Amanda.”

×
Sasha Gruber - Communications Manager

“I have nothing but positive experiences to share during my work with Amanda. At first, I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical; being in such a challenging position, it was hard to visualize what success would look like coming out of these sessions. Amanda was personable, easy to talk to and very intelligent. It was easy to take her advice because she built a valuable level of trust early on. She helped me recognize behaviors that were having a negative impact on how I perceived my work, and together we identified solutions that were quickly measurable. I feel better going into work every day knowing that I’m better equipped to handle stressful situations that form part of our everyday work lives.”

×
Julie Adrian - Managing Director

“I have had the pleasure of working with Amanda for many years – both being coached and having her coach my team – and I have consistently found her counsel tremendously valuable. She is able to quickly diagnose a situation, provide valuable perspective and give practical advice resulting in sustainable solutions.”

×
Cori McKeever - SVP, Healthcare

“I can’t say I was skeptical going into this coaching experience, because I had heard a number of positive things about it from colleagues. But I was a little wary about sharing how I truly felt, as well as investing the time to really get the most out of this experience. I can say without reservation that I grew professionally from the learnings that Amanda and I uncovered, and putting these learnings into practice has improved my day-to-day work life. I am thankful for the experience!”

×
John Caspole - Management Consulting

“Amanda is a winner! She has superb people skills and is the kind of coach who truly allows her clients to discover their strengths, become aware of their developmental opportunities and if they have blind spots reveal them in a positive constructive way.

She keeps her commitments, holds you accountable and seeks a win win situation for all.”

×
Paul Kingsman - Professional Speaker, Executive Coach, Olympic Medalist

“Having reviewed different coaches to work with, I chose to work with Amanda because of her real-world experience. I was glad I did, because her perspectives on issues and questions I had were helpful; she could easily relate to them, break them down and discuss and process them with me, and help me arrive at relevant, pragmatic conclusions, which I then put into action.”

×
Tracy Gale - Healthcare Communicator

“Amanda has tremendous insight into Chandler Chicco Agency, having worked with employee at all levels. This insight really helps her understand both sides of a situation and the dynamics at play. She helped me develop different strategies and tools for approaching people, as well as being more aware of my intentions vs. how people perceive me and why those perceptions exist.”

×
Neera Chaudhary - Strategic Planning

“My executive coaching has been an invaluable experience. One that has helped me be more self-aware and better navigate my career. I sincerely believe that it takes the right coach matched to the right person to see the benefits. I was fortunate enough to be connected with Amanda. She brings her wealth of experience navigating many different situations in the corporate landscape with an astute ability to objectively see big and small picture dynamics. She has a keen sense to quickly assess a person’s strengths and development needs with the customized counsel on how to leverage strengths and grow.”
