Angie Halamandaris’s coaching services have been the best investment of my entrepreneurial journey. She has helped fuel rapid growth by asking the tough questions, fine tuning my leadership approach, and helping me build a more effective and impactful business team. I have come to depend on her coaching to help me navigate our company’s toughest challenges. I always leave our sessions with a fresh perspective, a clear plan, and greater clarity. I highly recommend Angie and the Juniper Group.
It’s been a mind (and heart) opening experience for me, learning from you Angie. I love how you always remind me about my strengths and encourage me to think of how to leverage them even in settings where I’d originally thought to be impossible. In the process, I’ve learned about myself and my strengths in a deeper and more meaningful way, while also learning to think out of the box and challenge myself in new situations. I’ve also taken away communication techniques in terms of catering the message and delivery to the key audience, focusing not only on the content or delivery but on how I want them to feel at the end of it. All these will go a very long way for me, not only in my career but also in my personal development.
Angie helped me move forward. I was stuck. I was overwhelmed by the idea that the “world was my oyster” and my “future was a blank canvas of opportunity.” Hearing these cliche phrases from well-intended people just pushed me further into a catatonic state. Angie’s ability to help me see how to take that initial step forward cleared a path for positive energy and understanding on how to take the second step, the third step…and so on. I am in motion now.
Excellent workshops! Angie and Renee conducted engaging, interactive and fun CliftonStrengths® learning experiences across the First Horizon North, Central, and Southwest Florida Regions. They helped me create a strengths culture as the organization goes through an exciting and transformational time. It was extremely helpful for our team members to learn more about how to maximize their individual strengths and how we can leverage strengths productively as a team and organization for greater success. I would highly recommend their impactful workshop!
You have profoundly changed everything for me. You helped guide me to the heart and soul of who I am, which shifted a huge weight of doubt into believing I have so much talent and experience to give. Your ability to help me see myself with confidence, achieving my goals as an accomplished and successful woman, was an incredible gift and helped lift me up to do what God put me here to do. I am forever grateful.
I have been extremely well served by Angie’s flexibility and willingness to “meet me where I am” during each of our coaching sessions. She has helped me (and continually reminded me to) zoom out and slow down, so that I can better focus on the priorities I have for myself and for my organization. But, when both little and big fires erupted, Angie was an incredible asset in helping me with timely problem solving. We all know that most journeys involve unplanned (and sometimes unpleasant) detours—sessions with Angie were a roadmap for me in moments that (as a very new ED) felt directionless.
We all have been talking about our strengths, and I think about them more intentionally when working with my team now. The follow-up worksheets were so insightful. I was really impressed by the entire experience. I believe it was what I needed to get the fire lit under me. The words catalytic and intuitive keep dancing in my head.
Thanks for your commitment to helping my team, we really appreciate it.
Angie is a natural coach who has woven in her vast expertise working with, and learning from, people from all walks of life over the years and across the country. She is excellent at connecting the dots, so to speak, getting to know people’s truest interests, strengths, concerns, needs and hopes–coaching them to see their ultimate potential. She’s done that for me and keeps me believing anything is possible if I strive for it!
