Garden City, NY (PRWEB) November 25, 2014 -- NAPW honors Pamela M. Norton as a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year. Ms. Norton is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in career coaching. As the largest, most-recognized networking organization of professional women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 300 Local Chapters.
“My biggest reward as a coach is when a client takes action on something we've discussed and gets great results,” says Ms. Norton. “I like being their secret weapon.”
Before embarking on her foray into career coaching, Ms. Norton spent more than 25 successful years in the banking and software fields, where as a manager, she particularly enjoyed the aspects of coaching and mentoring her staff. In 2009, when she and her team were laid off, Ms. Norton was instrumental in helping coworkers strengthen their resumes and sharpen their job-hunting skills. Word got around about her effectiveness as a coach. Ms. Norton soon took on her first paying customer and founded TransitionSpark Coaching.
As a Career Coach with “real world, front line experience,” Ms. Norton helps her clients, many of whom are professional women, get more success and fulfillment from their jobs. In addition to the private coaching she offers, Ms. Norton is expanding her services to include online training and workshops on how to think and execute strategically to help clients reach the goals they want to achieve. On her website, Ms. Norton offers practical advice, tools and resources such as her blog, and the opportunity to download a free copy of 7 Steps to a Power Packed Resume, a helpful resume-building guide developed by Ms. Norton.
