How I can help
Does the idea of networking make you cringe? Do you freeze when you hear that most people find their next job through a personal relationship? Natalie works with her clients to understand their network, figure out what’s holding them back from cultivating and engaging the network, and finally, putting a networking plan into action. Along the way, she shares the secrets of bringing the spirit of a small town with you wherever you are. Natalie can facilitate this with individuals, work groups and community organizations through 1:1 coaching, small group coaching, and workshops.
Who I work with
Individuals and groups interested in building a meaningful network
The concept of mentorship is something many organizations tout as a key to professional development, but it’s a relationship many individuals struggle to define and execute. Recognizing this, my center recruited Natalie Siston to present on mentorship to clear up a number of key questions: How does one know if they’re ready to be a mentor? How does such a relationship start – or end? How is a mentor different from a sponsor or a coach? Natalie did an exceptional job not only answering these questions but in organizing her entire presentation in a clear, thoughtful manner, delivering her content in a polished but personable way that resonated extremely well with our crowd. She comes highly recommended from our center as a thought leader in this subject matter area.

For someone who always cringed at the word ‘Networking,’ Natalie brought an entirely new perspective on the subject. She was able to setup plans that were simple and realistic, while shedding light on the importance of getting past hello. The exercises that were assigned really helped to open up my mind to the subject and provided me with practical application. You always hear how important it is to build and maintain your network, but Natalie was able to ease that overwhelming process. She was an incredible speaker with significant real-world experience, which helped to validate her expertise around the matter. Highly recommend Natalie as a speaker and resource!
