Chris Trani… committed, supportive, forward-looking coach. I sought coaching with Chris after starting a new position with a consulting firm, in a new field for me. Initially, I simply wanted another perspective on how I made impressions with clients and a new employer. However, in my work with Chris, I also realized I needed help having tough conversations with a variety of people important to my work – including those who held sway over my assignments and managed my work. She helped me initiate these kinds of conversations sooner and broach difficult topics more skillfully which resulted in different, more desirable outcomes that I had been experiencing. What I like best about working with Chris is her ability to get me to focus on what I want while putting it in terms people can hear. Knowing what I want to accomplish and how to make my views heard without sacrificing the relationship has made a significant difference for me in my work.
