Coaching is a powerful, profound resource for many people. At its core, it is about a confidential relationship between a trained coach and you that results in clarity, trust, and purposeful potential. Transitioning to civilian life is both challenging and rewarding and yet often full of roadblocks.
“I was focusing on jobs that I was either overqualified for, or not interested in, and getting wrapped around the axle, so to speak, when I didn’t hear back on them. I was also having difficulty with translating my skills and abilities in a way that employers would understand and appreciate. Jessi helped me see the value I could bring to a potential employer, and also to overcome some of the negative self-talk I was engaging in.
Once we got through all that, I was able to focus my efforts while at the same time I was able to prevent myself from going in directions that really did not help me. She had me take some assessment tools along with other exercises. They validated much of what I already though about myself, while surprising me at the same time. The important thing is that I was able to focus on finding a career that aligns with what is most important to me. All I can say is, the Hawk Eye system works. Without Jessi I would likely still be looking for a job!” US Air Force Veteran
“Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.” Lao Tzu
We believe in helping our military heroes reintegrate into civilian lives with dignity, purpose, intention and vision. That is what Transition Development Coaching can do. Coaching offers guidance and groundwork for decision-making and growth. It delivers noticeable, genuine results.
It is a powerful, profound resource for many people. At its core, it is about a confidential relationship between a trained coach and you that results in clarity, trust, and purposeful potential. Transitioning to civilian life is both challenging and rewarding and yet often full of roadblocks.
A qualified coach can help you traverse these obstacles and manage the landscape much more effectively than if you were to attempt it on your own. Your final destination can be one of joy when the journey is clearly marked.
Veterans arrive at their transition state in various capacities and with varying degrees of excitement, fear, joy, sadness, even frustration. And yet – when that transition happens in an effective, purposeful way – it is masterful!
This coaching is applicable for the recently retired, reservist, military spouse or partner, or the veteran who is changing careers. More than working to uncover next steps in personal and professional development, the coaching engagement is designed to tap into hidden potential and to build strategic plans for successful, sustainable foundations in life and career.
Most coaching engagements range from 3 – 9 sessions at one session per week. Prices range depending on client’s needs. To learn more about a coaching program for your career transition, please contact me. I always offer a free introduction phone meeting.
I am writing to express my sincere gratitude and satisfaction for Ashley Gonzalez. [CVDC] Ashley has been my Coach for the past few months. He has been constantly sending me available job postings specific to my desired field of employment, networking events, career fair and Veteran workshop opportunities and motivational quotes that really come in handy when progress seems to not be advancing. …
I am in an absolute better position mentally than what I was a few months back. I appreciate the extra mile that he goes in assisting me on my journey. The selflessness and passion is clearly evident in his wanting to assist others. A great example to emulate.” Anthony Mesias

SURVEY FINDINGS ON COACHING:
1″In 2006, almost 90% of HR professionals and coaching clients felt the value of coaching was either somewhat high or very high. ‘High value’ perceptions now exceed 94%.”
In a recent Client Study performed by the International Coaching Federation the following key findings were identified:
“Coaching can help with a variety of goal areas. Findings from the 2010 ICF Global Consumer Awareness Study, showed that more than two-fifths (42.6 percent) of respondents who had experienced coaching chose “optimize individual and/or team performance” as their motivation for being coached.
This reason ranked highest followed by “expand professional career opportunities” at 38.8 percent and “improve business management strategies” at 36.1 percent.
Other more personal motivations like “increase self-esteem/self-confidence” and “manage work/life balance” rated fourth and fifth to round out the top five motivation areas.” ICF
*Coaching is not therapy and is not training. It is an experience of growth, guidance and empowerment.
