Today we’d like to introduce you to Pamela Grant.
Pamela, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
After working in management for two major airlines for over 20 years, I went back to school and obtained a Masters Degree in Occupational Education. I started my own business 24 years ago. I am a business coach, career counselor and management consultant.
I average a coaching clientele of 15 clients. I do management training and development for various companies from Houston to Lufkin.
I am a career counselor for people in their teens (getting ready to go to college) to people who are starting their first retirement.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I have been very fortunate because this has been a true calling in my life.
Most of my business is from referrals.
The struggle happened in my corporate life. The stress there almost killed me. I was the first woman to hold the last 5 jobs I held in the airlines at any airline.
So the struggle in that life propelled me into a graduate degree as well as a new career. It was a little scary to start over in my late 40s, but I’ve never looked back!
Life Callings – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
As I stated before, I do business coaching, career counseling and management training and development.
I specialize in helping people find their true calling and following that path.
In management training and development, I specialize in team buildings using personality profiles to enable team members to understand each other and become a more productive and compatible team.
In my coaching practice, I enable people to meet their goals and celebrate their life.
I am most proud of the continuous referrals I receive as well as hearing from past clients that they are still using the techniques they learned with me.
What sets me apart from others? I listen really well and make sure that the clients are getting what they want and I don’t impose my agenda on any of them.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
There have been many. One of my clients went back to school to get her undergraduate degree. I coached and encouraged her through the process. On her graduation, she said that half of the degree was mine.
Not true, of course because she did all the work, but it felt really good.
