Untangling Career Challenges and Choices through Coaching for Courageous Results-Oriented Clients who need Solutions NOW!
I met Career Development Coach Lupe Wood two years ago in Boston at a Healthcare and Leadership Coaching Conference. We hit it off immediately and after some dialogue decided to work together as peer coaches for one another. Since that time, Lupe and I have met for individual career coaching sessions every other week. She has helped me fine-tune and develop coaching my business with style and finesse. She has been pivotal in my business success.
Lupe is an attentive listener, providing wise counsel along with sound business advice. I have never felt worried about laying my cards out on the table with Lupe. She does not judge. She does ask probing questions that allow me to open my thinking cords and find alternative paths I had not considered otherwise. She is affirming, supportive and has provided direct feedback when required. I value and appreciate the work we do together. Lupe is my coach, my friend, and energy recharger. I leave Lupe’s sessions with greater confidence and a clear plan of my next steps.
I would highly recommend any professional who is thirsty to develop their skills and/or is in a career transition to reach out and connect with Lupe Wood.
I highly recommend Lupe to anyone seeking an expert career coach! I started working with Lupe just prior to starting my Ph.D. several years ago. She has expertly coached me through the Ph.D. experience, several job transitions, and in maintaining work/life/school balance during all of this. She also greatly helped by coaching me through the development of a strategic plan for both my university administrator role and in starting my own business. Lupe has a knack for asking the right questions at the right time to really help you understand why and what you’re doing and to challenge you to do more and to be more effective. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a coach!
I had reached out to Lupe when facing a decision on whether or not I should stay in current industry or move onto a new career. Lupe put a lot of effort to digging into the specifics of my industry. The initial consultation she asked questions to understand your goals in order to prepare a plan and focus on direction to take in career. Lupe is very energetic, calm and patient. She has a knack to tweak and adjust accordingly through exploration. Nothing was scripted and you knew she had your back, very supportive. After each session, I felt I could conquer anything and had clarity. Strongly recommend her if you are looking to make a career change or clarify your role/direction in your current career or industry.
My company introduced me to Lupe Wood as part of a leadership development program.
Lupe helped me make the transition into a new Global role which required organizational changes and process improvements across a team in multiple locations. She guided me to a point where I was more comfortable and able to think about how to share my thoughts and strategies with my leaders, peers and new reports.
Lupe gave me a different point of view. With her help, I can say that the transition became easier. I was lucky to have her as an executive coach. I learned a lot from her on leading with organizational changes, understanding different cultures and building an unique identity for my team. Which I admire about Lupe is her extraordinary ability to ask the right questions that led to achieve personal and company goals.
I encourage everyone to meet Lupe. I could not be more pleased with the relationship and the demonstrable results.
I am a Professional Certified Coach, with a Masters degree in Executive Coaching and Organizational Effectiveness.
My passion is untangling career challenges and choices through coaching for courageous results-oriented clients who need solutions now.
