If you need strategies for your work situation now, let’s talk this week. As founder of WorkOptions, I’ve been coaching career women on negotiating flexible work options since the mid-1990s, and on pay raises and salary packages since 2006.
My proven method: short-term “situational coaching” by phone or video call that moves you swiftly towards answers and action steps. No long-term coaching or contract involved.

Work-Life Makeover for Working Moms & Women 50+
Are you tired of the tension between work and the rest of your life? Are you feeling stuck in your search for a solution that fits your hectic career and life? If you’re struggling to find some control and calm in your crazy-busy days, I can help you get a clear picture of your options and the steps to relieve your conflict with a work-life makeover.
During this 90-minute consultation, I’ll get to know your work-life issues and together we’ll clearly define or refine your work-life vision. Then based on my 20+ years as a flexible work-life advisor, you’ll get my expert assessment of your options, with consideration of the realities of your job position and personal life.
From there, we’ll set goals and a custom plan that takes into account your career, finances and home life. Look forward to a refreshed sense of control through a new lens of possibilities.
Talking with Pat before I took maternity leave really helped me a lot. It opened my eyes to some unhealthy workplace dynamics and she made me realize that I shouldn’t settle for a situation that wasn’t working for me and my family. Long story short, this clarity drove me to make new work arrangements after my baby was born, and I am so much happier now. Danielle B., Missouri (She requested no further ID.)

Pat’s guidance provided me with a formula for work-life balance; the framework to evaluate my present position, including scripts for potentially stressful work negotiations, and also how to begin to place preventative measures for future career choices. Her professionalism and commitment gave me confidence about asking for what I wanted… Teri Hayward, DC, Burlington, Ontario

❝I never thought of that.❞
In two decades of advising people, I’ve heard that line often enough to confirm the research that says women are more inclined than men to accept the status quo and not consider (or even think of) all their negotiable options.
My Strengths as an Advisor Are My Abilities to:
- Create custom solutions to match individual needs
- Devise strategies for challenging situations and finding ways to overcome obstacles
- Craft scripts to foster agreement from the other people involved in the situation
The second one is the biggest challenge, but I have a knack for it. In negotiating terms, my ability to clearly assess my clients’ negotiating “leverage” and then favorably frame their “positioning” helps them get the result they want (or closer to it).
I seem to have an uncanny ability to clearly see the agendas of the people (usually managers and co-workers) my clients are dealing with (“That’s it exactly!”). Then I work with them on solutions to address the issues (“What a great idea. I hadn’t thought of that.”) to achieve a favorable outcome.
Strategy + Script: Know What to Do and Say
But beyond the strategy, I’m usually able to construct a short script which strongly supports the positive positioning we’ve established to resolve the communication or negotiation issue.
The script is a spontaneous flash of composition, yet surprisingly spot-on for the situation. (“I love the way you worded that!”) This happens at almost every client session.
So during our time together, not only will we come up with tactics and talking points to address your issue, it’s likely you’ll get a short script of exactly what to say!
When working with clients, I use a combination of advicing and coaching (I was certified as a Career Management Coach in 2005 through Career Coach Academy).
