Are you ready for a smart, effective, energizing approach to getting out of your own way and on with taking your life and career to the next level?
You're professional, intelligent, successful and to the outside world, everything looks fine. But you know somethings gotta' give.
Perhaps you know it’s time to take your career, your personal life, your future, into your own hands, yet you’re holding yourself back. Perhaps things you need to deal with have taken a backseat to 'busy' for too long. Perhaps.. well you know what it is and the feelings of overwhelm are all too real.
In my coaching practice, I continue to help leaders in their fields, and professionals like yourself, to transform overwhelm into success in far less time than going it alone.
I am a Seasoned Executive, Life and Career Coach, employing the most trusted career management solutions and personal effectiveness tools to help you create clarity, confidence and forward movement in the next best steps for you, your career, your relationships, your life.
It's an honor and joy in my life to help my clients get out of their own way and on with their lives. As they keep in touch I love hearing about what amazing things they are creating for themselves and their loved ones from a place of freedom and confidence.
Deborah Guy Skriloff, Certified Fear Mastery & Co-active Coach, Career Pivot Strategist,
Your Job Search Expert for the 2020 Job Market.
After working as an interviewer and job placement specialist in the mid-west. I made my first intentional job pivot by moving back to my hometown of NYC to work on Wall Street And then, my next pivot, by moving to the not-for-profit side of financial services.
In New York, I also had the opportunity to volunteer with homeless youth. In survival mode, fear, not reason, makes every decision. When fear was in charge, horrible decisions are made. I realized that reacting from a place of fear was evident in people from all walks of life. In homes, in offices, in businesses, in boardrooms.
I undertook a program of study around 1) fear responses, 2) how to mitigate their negative impact in our lives, and 3) the most effective way to help others to do the same. This changed my life and led to my 3rd career pivot: designing approaches for professionals to help them overcome the apprehensions of a rapidly changing work environment.
Chosen by the Chairman of a Fortune 100 company to become the Director of the company's Courage to Succeed Mentoring Program, I also helped professionals create clarity, confidence, and forward movement in life, relationship, and career decisions. A few years after retiring to raise my then, very young family, I started Crossing Bridges Coaching, now serving individuals and groups across North America and abroad. I look forward to helping you get clear, master fear, and move forward in your life, your relationships, and your work with confidence.
When I'm not working with clients, I enjoy producing and direct community theater. I have served as an Senior Executive Board member of the Community Children’s Theatre of Dutchess County for several years before relocating to the DC area where I now serve on the production team for Colonial Players of Annapolis. Happily married for 26 years, and counting, to the love of my life, we've been fortunate to be able to raise three amazing human beings.
A portion of our revenue from Crossing Bridges Coaching each year is dedicated to ending the cycle of youth homelessness (Standupforkids.org) and Addiction (SMARTRecovery.org)
