During 2013, I was on a highly demanding overseas United Nations deployment for six months. Regular telephone coaching sessions with Melody enabled me to deepen my decision-making abilities especially in the stressful environment. When tempted to just giving in to the initial impulse of feeling compelled to make rash decisions, which mischievously appeared to be without alternatives, I learned to apply my whole range of possibilities and opportunities and make sound decisions. Melody’s intuitive coaching style and empathetic attitude challenged me in a way that enabled me to make some very sound professional decisions in the mission that will have a long-lasting impact on people in the host countries as well as some profound family decisions I had to make which felt far more based on my values than I have experienced previously in my life. Life coaching already has provided me with invaluable decision making tools for all aspects of my life.
