Lois Melkonian Denver, Colorado
Life Coach, Career Coach, Executive Coach
Lois Melkonian is a Certified Holistic Life, Career and Executive coach with a passion for clients who’ve hit a roadblock in their lives because their attempts to please everyone is never enough.
She knows, she’s been there. Growing up as a third culture kid, raising three sons as a single mother, caring for her aging parents and juggling a career as a broadcast anchor and reporter, Lois felt she had to conform to be accepted. Until she made a decision to examine her life and put an end to this destructive cycle. Three things had to change: striving for external validation and approval, apologizing for herself and those around her and trying to fix others. Sound familiar?
You, too, can take back control of your life and find emotional balance and stability. Using engaging tools, you’ll see your confidence and self-esteem return. Those fears that hold you back? You’ll find what they’re teaching you as you begin to take care of your emotions and let others deal with their own emotions themselves. One by one, the decisions you make in every area of your life will be your own. And you will own them.
Born in India, Lois lived in Lebanon and Denmark before coming to the US. For more than 30 years, she asked questions to get to the bottom of a story as a Radio and TV broadcaster in Denver, San Francisco and Houston. She transitioned to life coaching after stepping away from broadcasting to manage the care for her parents, one of whom had Alzheimer’s.
As a Life and Career Coach, Lois utilizes a variety of modalities including Personality Strengths, Powerful Questions, Emotional Intelligence, Neuroscience and Brain Based Coaching.
Together, she will team up with you in a thought provoking and creative process to eliminate the addiction you might have to pleasing your family, your boss, your colleagues and anyone you encounter. You will discover what it is you’ve always been passionate about and then design the life and work you’ve always wanted. Your way.
I engaged with Lois in the middle of a very challenging time with my company. We were evolving product, having to right size our staff, and motivate a new generation of workers at the same time. Lois helped in a number of ways; focus on the now, focus on the what and how and stop asking any why questions; focus on positive forward; and drive from the heart for the team. All of it worked, and we are on a great road, making fast progress and are resetting the organization ... Can not recommend her enough ..Art Raymond
