We first met almost 8 years ago, I was in search of somebody who could help me overcome a monumental obstacle of transitioning my hi-tech background and get into the cutting edge biotech field. Marge gave me encouragement and hope that she could help me turn this impossible task into a possibility.
I followed every aspect of her teachings and before long I received an interview with the #1 biotech firm on the Fortune 500 list of top companies to work for. Thanks to Marge’s Discover Winning Ways program, I interviewed well and got the job! I’ve been with them for nearly 8 years now. I’m indebted to Marge for her dedication and commitment in helping me realize my own potential, and for sharing her unique strategies and tactics that resulted in getting my dream job!"
Marge has a personality and a work style that is truly perfect for me and I think we clicked from the start. Her sense of humor always gave me something to laugh about and at the same time made me think more clearly about what I needed and wanted in both my professional and personal goals."
The cloud of what I thought I should do, or must do, was lifted. Winning Ways was instrumental in granting this expanded perspective. I was truly touched by Marge’s straightforward approach, her humor, wisdom, and kindness is one of a kind.
Regardless of age or career status Winning Ways can provide the tools for focusing and motivating new beginnings."
“The employees she has worked with and is currently working with have had nothing but wonderful things to say about Marge. She provides encouragement, motivation and is brilliant at helping our employees discover their career strengths. She provides the tools and drive necessary for them to take that step and pursue possibilities they never thought they could”.
“Letting go of staff is always emotionally difficult in this job (no matter what the reason is), but knowing that Marge is taking care of these people provides a sense of relief for me as well as all of us here in Human Resources. We know that they are in good hands and have excellent chances of making it on the outside in a career that fits”.
Once the questions about skills, experience, interest and passion are explored, the process of narrowing down job types and industries is undertaken.
That’s where Powers’ experience, skill and insight come into play even more forcefully. Why? Because she has an uncanny ability to help her charges prepare for informational interviews and to speak the language of the industry and job that has piqued their interest.
It’s this demand-side wisdom, i.e. speak and think the way that your potential hiring manager thinks, that puts a job and career seeker in a great position to win. They see things from the point of view of their target audience and not their own point of view.
It’s a lot of work. But at the end of the day, it’s the difference between pitching a tent that blows away with the first gust of wind and building a home with a strong foundation. When you re-position your career thinking and job search techniques this way—the right way—you end up with something substantial and long lasting."
In short, thanks to you, I am creating the magnificent in my life."
Marge is completely unselfish in her help and willingness to go the extra mile for her clients. I feel that I not only was coached by a truly gifted person but also have a friend that I can call on down the road to help answer my questions that are most important to me!"
Her wonderful coaching brought me across a threshold I have been wanting to cross for 30 years, and that is changing from my old career in office administration to my heart’s desire of working in holistic health. My life will be totally changed as a result, and literally my fondest dreams are coming true.
But there was still one block left to remove before I could truly move forward, and that was a life-long tendency to extreme worry and anxiety. Childhood traumas had set me in a pattern of fear and doubt about myself and life and the Universe in general, and this produced continual bouts of anxiety and insomnia.
But, Marge to the rescue! Her mastery of NLP brought me across this threshold. I finally leaned that, while anxious situations won’t ever go away, it is the ability to manage far that gets us through. NLP helped me to recognize that I indeed do have the inner resources for coping. This may sound elementary, but it was a life changing revelation for me!"
My goal is to grow where I’m planted and allow myself to bloom. I tend to be so “out there,” always looking beyond, as if the grass is greener somewhere else; that I forget the abundance and opportunity I have right before me. Time to get rid of the worry and rush through life gremlin.
Working with you has been a Godsend for me. I had hit my bottom and when I started working with you and today, two months later, feel stronger, more focused and accepting of who I am and what I have to offer.
I’m sure I will continue to call with questions as the process unfolds for me. I would like to keep in contact with you. You have become a special person in my life; a good source of information, support and inspiration for me and I always learn so much from you."
We met to discuss everything and she showed me that I have so many more skills and marketable gifts than I had ever imagined!!! We explored all sorts of alternatives and in the end decided I was exactly where I needed to be but that I needed “an attitude adjustment”. As a result of those meetings and Marge’s delightful insight and sense of humor, I was able to take stock of my career goals, retool my practice and become the happy and satisfied professional I am now.
Oh, the attitude adjustment? Well, that’s easy; I quit going to court and now only focus on non-litigated ways to help people resolve disputes!! Many thanks to Marge who helped me see who I really am.
Since then, I have sent to Marge many of my clients as referrals, and each of them has had a very positive experience with the Winning Ways assessment process."
