Gladys, here are a few things that I greatly value in you in our working together. Just random thoughts.
1. You know how to "coach", not instruct or teach. Brings out the best in the end.
2. You have a great balance in the details within the big picture, and the big picture is beyond just one application, or even just the one search. You take the time to know me as a person, not just a client.
3. You are very creative, offering multiple approaches to issues, including as was the case this morning, even suggesting a different industry for me to explore.
4. I very much appreciate your calm approach, your being non-directive (coaching not instructing), as I said) all within a very positive base. For example, I really needed to refocus myself on my job search after having to deal with several other issues. I knew a call with you would do that for me and it was completely true. I feel energized, focused and feel forward motion. It was exactly what I needed. You didn't know that at the time, but I did and you have that gift.
5. In general, I'm very grateful for all you've done so far. Finding the right fit doesn't usually happen on the first person you try, but in this case, to my great relief, it did.

"As knowing Gladys better and better, I have been continually impressed with her on several different levels, both professionally and personally. Not only that she has helped me on a professional one-on-one career coaching in NYU, but also I have developed a great deal of respect for her personal attributes, which I am confident will translate directly into her performance as a successful business-woman.
"Among other admirable qualities are her integrity and sensitivity. I have enormous personal respect for Gladys which comes from observing first hand the way in which she interacts with those around her. She is an extremely warm and compassionate person, which enabled her to get along with everyone. She is genuinely interested in those she meets and regularly inquires about others with a sincere and honest concern for their well being. Therefore, she's been able to establish long-lasting friendships with many of students she's been coaching for. I truly believe her personality will win her numerous opportunities in the business world."

"Finally, I got the job I wanted. It was a tough decision to decline an offer I had. I still think that without your counseling and support I would not have gone for what I really wanted. I might have accepted the offer that did not fit my current life circumstances, and equally important it would not have fit who I am. I recently needed some career advisement and the career counselor was absolutely taken by all the things I learned from you, especially the importance of networking, which has yet to be realized by the Austrians. I am forever grateful for what you did for me, and I am still benefiting from it".

"Gladys Kartin was hired to administer the MBTI to several key employees in this retail food establishment. Her original task was to identify ways to motivate the employees to perform better. Gladys identified the personality preferences, strengths and development needs and how this impacted on the quality of their work performance and motivation. She created a better understanding of what 'personality type' would better suited to work in this environment. I value a certain work ethic that lends itself to having a successful career and it was most helpful to learn how useful and applicable this information was. ...I would not hesitate to recommend you to coach and evaluate current employees and newly hired employees. You have excellent interpersonal skills, and were well liked by everyone you interacted with".
