I have gotten a lot out of building a vision of my ideal work environment, which keeps me oriented in the right direction.
I’ve been getting confirmation of what I value about myself and been able to see traits and strengths that weren’t readily accessible before. Working together with Hannah feels like I have new direction and I’m hopeful about where I’m headed. I feel seen, heard and validated in a deep way.
