Highly recommended!

I am a high-achiever, operating at or near the top of my industry. I wanted a coach that would enable me to push even further – to take things to the “next level”. I see many coaches falling into two categories – directive (pushing) and facilitative (pulling). I believe Julie’s approach is beautiful combination of the two that results in her unique style of ontological coaching. That is exactly what I was seeking. Ontological coaches, like Julie, take the position that the client is the expert on his or her life and knows what he or she wants. An ontological coach just helps you determine how to get there. Julie knows I have the power and ability to create the life I want. She is not trying to fix me. Instead, she is helping me gain insight into how to live intentionally. Our conversations are about self-reflection. Julie’s coaching helps me identify fundamental truths about myself that will enable me to get to my destination. It is not just about goal-setting and accountability. It is about understanding the reasoning behind my goals and implementing the life changes necessary to achieve those goals. I think Julie has done a tremendous job in helping me in my transformation from the status quo to the businessman and family man that I really want to be. For that I say, “Thanks, Julie!” Highly recommended.

AMAZING

Julie has been my life coach for the past couple of months and it has been amazing. Through our sessions I feel that have been able to understand my goals for 2018 and beyond and I am finally able to articulate why I want to meet these goals. I was in a rut and finally feel that I have been able to get out of it because of her help. I definitely feel motivated and ready after our sessions. I also feel more grounded on what I think of myself as a person and how others view me; we have done exercises that have helped me better understand these critical aspects of myself. She is easy to talk to, non-judgmental, and super smart. She is also very organized and I feel that our sessions have been worth my time and energy. I look forward to talking to her on a weekly basis.

Helped me to get “unstuck”!

I hope that I have conveyed to you how transformative this experience has been for me in a variety of ways. First, coaching has helped me to get “unstuck” and see that there are always options. It has helped me realize that the options and answers are within and I just have to reach deep to find them and execute them. Having week-to-week milestones and activities has truly supported this process by providing me with accountability for my actions. Second, our coaching relationship has helped me to become more empowered and purposeful in how I move my life forward. Your guidance has been supportive and without judgment. You have provided the tools in a way that has still allowed me to be in control of and responsible for my life choices. Third, your warmth and kindness has always shone through during our sessions and sometimes, I just needed someone objective to listen. This has been perhaps the most important trait and skill that you have – listening without judgment in a way that respects where I am in my life and supports my decision to move forward.

I feel that I am on a great path for moving forward. The unknown is a little daunting, but I do believe there are great things on the other side.

Am now a better husband, father, and business owner.

As a sole-proprietor, and only employee of a Contracting Business, hard work comes with the job. What does not come naturally, is, realizing when it’s important to bring in help. I have run my business with moderate success for the past 5 years, but recently I felt it necessary to identify ways that I could grow my business, and generate proven strategies to make it happen. Upon my introduction to Julie Ketover, I knew that I had met the right professional to guide me in this process.
Immediately, Julie assisted me in uncovering “blocks” that were limiting me from achieving the goals that I had set for myself. The demands of my work are abundant, in addition to the demands of family obligations. In just a few short sessions it had become clear to me that the “routine” that I established in my life, was not conducive to my growth. A starting point was addressing my complacency in managing my schedule, and the people around me whom were willing to help. With a few subtle shifts in the way I was planning my work week, and the tasks that were “necessary” during the course of a day, I was able to substantially increase my productivity. My relationships with friends, family, and colleagues grew stronger as I was able to confidently communicate my intentions and needs.
The relationship in coaching was not about what Julie “told” me to “do”; moreover, it was how she was able to help me identify what “I” need to “do”. Unless you are part of some rare demographic, we as humans establish patterns that we don’t always choose. Those patterns almost passively enter our lives because of how we were raised, or even what we believed was comfortable. It helped me to be reflective, and willing to grow in order for the coaching relationship to prosper. Julie has given me confidence that I did not have when we first started working together. The coaching she provided me has been priceless in more ways than I could have imagined. Today, I am more “decisive” than ever in my personal and professional life because of the tools that Julie has given me. I have renewed optimism about my business, a fresh perspective on all of my future goals, and have become a better version of myself.
I am confident that a coaching relationship, no matter the duration, will benefit people from any background. If you feel like you are “stuck in a rut”, a “titan”, or on a path to “greatness” you can benefit from coaching. Some of the discoveries that Julie will help you make will be keys to the life that you’ve wanted for yourself. The best investment I’ve made in my business has been investing in “myself”, coaching has helped me to grow into the person I needed to be years ago. I am a better husband, father, and business owner because of the advice and knowledge from Julie Ketover.

Helped me put structured practices into my daily life.

Working with Julie has given me a weekly structure to examine the areas in my life where, although I want change to occur, I operate on autopilot. Julie has helped me put some structured practices into my daily life, and simply by following those practices, I have seen dramatic shifts occur in my life. Also, Julie sees things in me that I cannot see in myself. Her reflections of me that she shares with me at the end of all of our calls has enabled me to see myself in a more powerful way, and that inner strength has shifted the way I relate to myself.

Julie is kind, loving and compassionate. The insights that she shares about what she sees in me have helped me push beyond where I would normally stop in my life. After every weekly call I am left empowered and inspired.

I feel like everyone could benefit in working with Julie. Not only does she provide me with powerful wisdom and insights, but she does so in a very loving and gentle way. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to make changes in any area of their life.

AMAZING!!

Julie has helped me re-connect and recognize my core strengths and to utilize them to achieve my life goals. Wow its amazing! its not that she taught me some rocket science; she just helped me feel comfortable with my self- accepting, working with and at times challenging my limitations and channeling my strength in the right path. She has a very warm and welcoming personality and is completely nonjudgmental.

Powerful Force

Julie has been such a wonderful influence and powerful force for good in my world since we began working together. She takes a nuanced, highly intelligent approach to problems, understands the core of where you’re coming from and tackles them with insight, love, respect and a bit of toughness and grit. She provides complex yet workable responses on the big picture visions, the mundane daily skirmishes and all the in between. She’s been immensely helpful to me in all aspects, and I greatly enjoy the time we spend together.

Life-changing experience

Collaborating with Julie has been a life-changing experience. After witnessing a friend (who works with Julie) shift her personal life and substantially grow her business, I knew having a coach would not only be an incredible experience, but a necessary investment to make things come to fruition in my life. Her sessions each week constantly provide new opportunities for insight. She helps me explore patterns of behavior that show up in my professional and personal life. Julie has a gently yet effective accountability mechanism to keep me moving forward to the goals I am setting for myself. Thank you! Thank you!

Transformative

Over the years, I’ve held many positions in the legal field. I’ve been in big law firms, in-house, out on my own, and now in a small boutique firm. I realized when I hit about 2 years in my current job that the reason I change jobs so often is because I get bored or frustrated or disenchanted with my job and seek change, sometimes just for change’s sake. After talking to Julie, I realized that it may not be the job itself, but how I approach my job that is the real problem. I found that what I really want is to be invested in my work, to find personal fulfillment in what I do, and to find a way to do what I love to the best of my ability, but without compromising who I am as a person, or what matters the most to me in life. In working with Julie, she has helped me find my voice, and reignite my passion for the law. She’s helped me overcome my insecurities and feeling of inadequacy and she’s helped me to see that I am fully capable of realizing my goals in both my personal and professional lives. It has been really empowering working with Julie. She gets me, and doesn’t try to change me. She just helps me tap into some inner strengths that I didn’t know I had or was afraid to access. It’s been an absolute joy working with her, and it has changed my whole attitude about my work. I no longer am looking for the next best thing outside of where I am now, but instead I am seeking to make my current job work for me. She prods me sometimes to own up to some habits, but she does it in a funny and caring way. She makes me really think about the “why” of what I do, and not just the “how”. My coaching experience with Julie has been trans-formative.

When Lightning Strikes . . .

On November 30, 2018, lightning struck me – I met Julie Ketover. Rare we would have friends in common – no; rare we would both love and adore Michelle Obama and want to see her book tour – no; rare we would sit next to each other and talk as if we had been friends for years – absolutely; even more rare that I would share that I was at a crossroads in my career and feeling incredibly unfulfilled and unhappy – no doubt. And so what would have been a phenomenal evening turned magical.

Days later, Julie and I started our journey together. I shared my discontentment in my job, my boss, and my decisions. I blamed myself. I was hard on myself. I had very little faith in myself. But the thing about lightning bolts is that it is an electric discharge, it gives you energy. As did mine. And week after week we worked on me. What I brought to the table – my true essence and I grew more confident. I found my voice again and I started to develop a plan.

Within 3 months of working together, I changed jobs. I am now in a role that I love, working for someone that I admire and emulate. I am passionate about my company and I finally feel fulfilled. That, in and of itself, for me, was transformative, but Julie continued to strike.

During our sessions, I went through a terrible family crisis. Julie listened, provided me resources and comfort. She did not judge me, she did not try to fix me. She was exactly what I needed when I needed it most and for that I will be forever thankful.

Julie is truly remarkable. She delivers coaching that is so far beyond coaching it should be called therapy for your soul. Yes, she can navigate the complicated terrain of corporate America. Yes, she will help you develop a project plan to achieve your desired promotion and sought after goals. Yes, she will achieve all the things you want a typical coach to do for you. But it is the intangible things that make her truly extraordinary. She listens – not in the way your partner listens but in the way you listen to your children when you are trying to uncover the true meaning of their words. She co-creates with you. She is invested in your thoughts, ideas, plans and you feel it when she talks and looks at you. She empathizes with you when you hurt, when you are raw and open. She lets you feel all of your emotions however you feel them. She does not apologize for them or make excuses for them nor does she allow you to – she just lets you feel them. They are yours after all. Most remarkably, she doesn’t shy away from pushing you into the hard stuff and questioning the things that you keep dancing around. If we don’t face our fears we cannot conquer them. She helps you battle them, she may even put on armor and join the war!

So according to the National Geographic, the odds of being struck by lightning in any one year is 1 in 700,000. I guess I am pretty lucky Julie Ketover struck me.
