Daniel R, New York, NY
Adeline M, New York, NY
She helped our board with strategy development and identified a clear path forward that was well-suited for our organization (and somehow managed to make us feel like she’d known and worked with our organization for years — not the mere weeks it had actually been). As a one-on-one coach, she made the first few months of stepping in to lead a growing nonprofit feel positive and manageable. She was clearly meant to be a coach, and is able to make you feel truly seen and heard while drawing out “aha!” moments regularly that help you to move your work forward. Her coaching was a transformative experience that I’ll continue to draw on throughout my career.
I can think of no better investment of time, energy, or funding, and highly recommend that you work with Christine if you have the opportunity! Her support will be the breakthrough you need.”
"Through Christine's group coaching program, I not only have clarity on my career direction and what I need out of a career, but I found myself a job that I truly enjoy."
Cat Bristol, big island, hi
“I’ve taken Christine’s career-focused group program (North Star Navigator) and this was one of the most helpful professional development programs I’ve ever done. When I started, I was stuck in my career — I didn’t know how to navigate my way towards something that I loved. Through Christine’s group coaching program, I not only have clarity on my career direction and what I need out of a career, but I found myself a job that I truly enjoy. In addition, I’ve met so many incredible people through this program. Participating in this program has been a life changing experience and I’m so thankful to Christine for the guidance and tools she’s provided that will continue to support me throughout my career.”
"I've had 'Eureka' moments regarding my natural capabilities... I was able to understand the types of roles that are most fulfilling to me and best aligned with my values."
Melissa W, New york, NY
“I started working with Christine during a stressful career transition. Thanks to Christine’s assessments, I’ve had “Eureka” moments regarding my natural capabilities and what I enjoy doing. I was able to concisely draft a narrative of my value and contributions in line with my long-term career goals. Through working with Christine, I was able to understand the types of roles that are most fulfilling to me and best aligned with my values. Most importantly, because of Christine’s coaching, I’m less anxious regarding professional challenges and obstacles.”
"I was able to show up confidently to share my story and my accomplishments, which led to a job offer at an organization that is deeply aligned with my values."
elizabeth a, san francisco, ca
“Working with Christine has been a significant partnership that I truly needed during a challenging job search where I was looking to make a change. I often felt isolated, discouraged and overwhelmed. The coaching sessions with Christine kept me accountable to meeting my job search goals. Thanks to Christine, I landed my ideal job at Kitchen Table Advisors as a Partnership Manager! I was able to show up confidently, share my story and clearly articulate my accomplishments. Most importantly, Christine has helped me learn a lot about myself – how I operate, what really gets me energized and what drains me. I discovered my strengths and skills that encourage me to lean into what brings me joy and fulfillment. In the future, while doubt can still creep up, I know that I can reground myself in my abilities, skills and the accomplishments I’m proud of.”
"I feel the self-awareness I have gained in my time with her will yield benefits throughout my career."
Fatima m, new york, NY
“Working with Christine has been truly transformational for me. I initially started my coaching engagement with her to help me effectively navigate my transition to a new role. While our sessions together were extremely helpful for that specific purpose, I feel the self-awareness I have gained in my time with her will yield benefits throughout my career. Thanks to our partnership, I have a greater understanding and appreciation of my skills and talents as well as the potential obstacles that can hinder me from using them effectively. I also have increased confidence in my leadership style. The fact that Christine is both a seasoned development professional and a skilled executive and career coach makes her a particularly valuable thought partner for senior development professionals. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to advance their personal and professional goals.”
"I highly recommend her to any non-profit executive tasked with development."
jennifer e, los angeles, ca
“I initially hired Christine to establish GMTO’s presence in New York and work closely with the east coast members of GMTO’s Advisory Council. I recognized her value immediately and quickly expanded her role to include corporate partnerships, strategy for donor prospects, and utilized Christine to help develop the infrastructure needed to expand our department.
Christine not only has a great work ethic, but also has deep experience and sophistication in fundraising tactics and implementation. In addition, I benefited from Christine’s executive coaching, which helped me better navigate the complexities of my work. I appreciate Christine’s drive and ability to get things done and move things along through challenges. I highly recommend her to any non-profit executive tasked with development.”
"I'm regularly using the knowledge I gained from CoreClarity to improve my relationships and productivity."
Pam W, San Francisco, ca
“The CoreClarity workshops have allowed me to learn about how I navigate my life through the lens of talents and strengths. From the first workshop to weeks after the last session, the vocabulary used in the series continues to be part of my daily conversations. As I continue to process and analyze my actions, decision-making process, how I communicate and what I do to fill my time, there’s a heightened awareness of activities that drain or energize me. I’m also more sensitive to how I interact with individuals who are different from me. I’m regularly using the knowledge I gained from CoreClarity to improve my relationships and productivity.”
"I am more attuned with my gifts and talents, feel confident about using them, and now know how to present myself more authentically."
Lisa A, West orange, NJ
“Working with Christine has been a gift beyond my expectations. While I started the coaching engagement to identify and land my dream job, I’ve gotten so much more than I thought possible. As a result of Christine’s personalized coaching and thought-provoking questions, I now have a much greater insight on who I am. I am more attuned with my gifts and talents, feel confident about using them, and now know how to present myself more authentically. I also feel less anxious about the job search process. I’m on a journey, and having been equipped with valuable self-knowledge and tools, I am certain I will reach my destination.“
"I now have a job at SAP that has everything I wanted from a professional and personal standpoint.... a role that is fulfilling, meaningful, and challenging."
Miriam R, Madrid, Spain
“Thanks to Christine, I now have a job at SAP that has everything I wanted from a professional and personal standpoint. Her coaching helped me to develop a “wish list” that I was able to check off during my interviews. It helped me to objectively evaluate a job from my own criteria, and I was able to find a role that is fulfilling, meaningful, and challenging. Working with Christine has been an amazing learning experience, and honestly, I couldn’t be happier to land at SAP!”
"Christine... provided much needed confidence to get me over my anxiety, made me feel empowered, and gave me the tools to stand out from the competition."
Patricia k, washington, dc
“I was scheduled for an interview for my dream job at Facebook. I knew the process would be competitive because there were senior level candidates with many more years of experience being considered for this position. Christine walked me through foundational and critical aspects of an interview, from the psychology of the interviewer to helping me hone in my message in a clear and succinct way. She provided much needed confidence to get me over my anxiety, made me feel empowered, and gave me the tools to stand out from the competition. After several interviews, I was offered the job, and even better, they gave me a package that I couldn’t refuse! I couldn’t have done it without Christine’s coaching and encouragement. I highly recommend Christine to anyone who is facing a tough interview for a job they truly want.
"The assessments and coaching helped to reveal my strengths so I can now shine confidently!"
Christine R, Hackensack, NJ
“I was at a place in life where I was feeling stuck at work and was at a dead-end in my career. I felt I had no choice, especially since I barely had any time. By working with Christine, I was able to get clarity on what I want from life and realized I wanted to start my own business and do what I love. In three short months, to my surprise I was able to focus and prioritize, and ended up accomplishing significantly to setup my business. At the same time, I was able to draw boundaries with my boss and manage my toxic workplace. Christine helped me set my sights on higher goals and focus my attention and energy on the most impactful steps.
Furthermore, through the assessments and coaching, I began to recognize when I was feeling victimized and was able to shift my energy and emotions to a place of hope and productivity. Now I am more assertive and feel empowered with the perspective that I can create my own path in life rather than having life happen to me. The assessments and coaching helped to reveal my strengths so I can now shine confidently! The best part of coaching was seeing my growth accelerate! I could not have done this without Christine’s coaching and guidance.”
"we know our natural capabilities so much better than before"
Richard P & Sarah P, New York, NY
“We decided to take the Highlands Ability Battery because we were at a crossroads in our career. We have been brainstorming what our next career or business venture would be but coming up with a decision has been a challenge. The results from the HAB opened up our perspectives on our natural abilities and learning channels were and how they would fit with the kind of work we would pursue next. After reviewing the results with Christine, we finally have the opportunity to find something we feel good about pursuing because we know our natural capabilities so much better than before. “
"I cannot express how deeply transformative it has been working with Christine"
Grace Y, Chicago, IL
“I cannot express how deeply transformative it has been working with Christine as she provided the support I desperately needed in breaking through unhealthy frameworks and habits I found myself cycling through in my career. Christine’s coaching approach and style helped surface significant issues that directly tied to all areas of my life (i.e. self-identity, family dynamics, romantic relationships, finances), which impacted the perception of my self-worth in achieving my career goals and professional pursuits. I found each session resonant and powerful, thanks to Christine’s incisive questions, observant reflections, and the incredible array of tools and resources she provided. The exercises she walked me through during each session produced new paradigm-shifting breakthroughs, moving me towards more self-compassion and positive behavior change. The hurdles we faced together seemed less scary, knowing that I had an encouraging and well-equipped advocate supporting me in my journey. Christine’s ability to help people navigate obstacles and pursuits while building their confidence and motivation is truly a gift unto others. It’s not only worth investing in, but profoundly necessary in one’s path for personal or professional growth and development.”
"One of the best investments I've made for myself."
Carmen S, Washington, DC
“Christine has been a wonderful coach and I recommend her highly. Since I did not have to apply for a job for the past 21 years, it was quite daunting to update my resume and cover letter, let alone search in a completely different field. Christine provided incredibly helpful guidance and strategies to job hunting and career change, that transformed my perspective on the process. I can now even share some of those strategies with my daughters! I also learned a great deal about myself and was able to narrow my focus to identify an ideal job for me. Best of all, she’s helped me to gain confidence to accomplish my goals. I have a better plan of what I need to do now and I am so grateful to have worked with Christine. I know that this was one of the best investments I’ve made for myself.”
"With every completed step, my dream career began to crystalize and it was so invigorating to see that I could achieve it."
Christine C, Los Angeles, CA
“Working with Christine significantly accelerated the changes I wanted to see in my career beyond what I could imagine. I had been in my current field for a long time and was itching to try something new, but I didn’t know where to begin or how to focus my search. I talked myself out of moving forward countless times with varied excuses. Christine helped me to confront my self-limiting thoughts and we devised clear action steps to explore my interests in depth. With every completed step, my dream career began to crystallize and it was so invigorating to see that I could achieve it. The accountability I received through coaching was crucial to my progress and I can’t wait to make bigger strides in the near future. Don’t stay stay stuck in the land of imagination–work with Christine and learn how to realize your dream!”
"Sometimes the shifts were so powerful and happened so quickly it surprised me"
April Y, San Francisco, CA
“Christine gave me encouragement, hope, and guidance after a traumatic time in my life when I was uprooted from everything as I knew it. She kept our sessions focused and respected my time and priorities. She knew exactly the right questions to ask me to help me dig deeper and provided very relevant, tangible advice to help me shift my perspective to a more positive and beneficial frame when I was only able to see things in a way that was not helping me move forward.
“Sometimes the shifts were so powerful and happened so quickly it surprised me–in a very good way. For every aspect of my life that we worked on, I feel I received positive results working through all of them with Christine. I highly recommend her skills and talents!”
"Working with Christine... was such a game changer"
Ama A, New York, NY
“Working with Christine this summer was such a game changer – I went in as a skeptic knowing that I needed help and was truly transformed due to her dedication, knowledge, objectiveness, wisdom and encouraging spirit. She is very passionate about what she does, and is a great listener and speaker. She was a cheerleader when I needed one, challenged me as a teacher/instructor does and always made sure that I stayed on track. I truly believe that this is what she is called to do, and I hope that I will find my calling in this way as it is deeply inspiring and such a beautiful blessing and gift.”
"refine my goals, gain focus, and plan actionable steps"
Esther S, Los Angeles, CA
“I really enjoyed working with Christine Oh on rebuilding an area of my life that needed upkeep after a bout with depression. Christine helped me refine my goals, gain focus and plan actionable steps. Being able to discuss my concerns and receive her feedback was incredibly helpful—Believe me: a much more efficient way to get that part of my life back in order! Christine combined a sense of care with a vigilant ethic over my progress. In the end, I was able to maintain and grow upon the habits that we developed together. I highly recommend her.”
"Christine... helped me create realistic game plans for each goal I wanted to accomplish"
Lauren E, Long Island, NY
“Christine is an amazing coach. She is extremely caring and helped me create realistic game plans for each goal I wanted to accomplish while working together. When I got stuck, Christine made sure to help me to see why and find ways to get back on track. By doing so she helped me realize what was really stopping me for achieving my goals.”
"She guided my anxiety into a place of understanding and ease"
Sabrina J, Granada Hills, CA
“Looking for a new job can be stressful and frustrating when one doesn’t hear back after sending out so many resumes. Even though I THINK I’m doing the right things, I may not be doing ALL the right things and with the effectiveness I’d like in return. Christine really helped me narrow down some of my job searching tactics, and how I can delve into what I could be doing more. Most importantly, she guided my anxiety into a place of understanding and ease when it came to tactics that I know are best for me but not sure how to start. I feel like that is what was most valuable, since some of my nerves kept me from moving forward. Christine asked the right questions on what I can do to get to where I want to be and was very easy to talk to and relatable. I would recommend her to anyone who feels stuck about reaching a goal in life.”
