“When you undervalue what you do, the world will undervalue who you are.”

Oprah Winfrey

 

“I worked with Cathy Wasserman for ten weeks. Immediately, I sensed a deep respect for her clients’ wisdom about themselves. While she gave me permission to think about the really big picture of my career, she also engaged me in the day-to-day challenges and decisions I faced. One hour with Cathy might include problem solving about a difficult professional relationship in one moment, and then move on to what kind of difference I see myself making in the world in the next. She moved seamlessly from forest to trees and back again, teaching me to manage dreams and possibilities with each other instead of in opposition. After every meeting, I felt like there was a lot I could do to make my professional life more fulfilling. I ended our work with some very tangible results which serve me every day. I would recommend working with Cathy to anyone who seeks a space for personalized career development.”
