About Me

Cathy Ginsberg

Career Growth Coach & Trainer - People Focus Training Inc.

Growth Comes from Stepping Beyond our Comfort Zone

In my career, growth has come from intentionally stepping outside of my comfort zone.

More than once, I have moved from the security of the familiar to explore new opportunities. I have always aimed for maximum engagement in my own work – and to keep those around me inspired to do their best work.

You and your growth are the priority here at People Focus Training – when I created my own company, the vision was to help others in their journey towards growth, engagement and inspiration at work.

Could Overcoming Fear be Your Best Career Move?

Growth for me has included taking on challenges, looking for opportunities to learn, and ultimately to help other people develop and grow as well.

For many years now I’ve enjoyed public speaking – to groups both large and small – face to face and online. But early in my career the whole idea of standing in front of a group and speaking filled me with dread – by the way, this is very common, and it’s something that holds us back from success in life.

I overcame this fear by growing. I volunteered to lead regular meetings for a community group that I cared about and gradually developed the skills, the mindset and the confidence. And I’ve helped many people overcome their fear and gain confidence, to go after that next career move, to go for that promotion, or to switch career paths.

Engagement in my work has kept me anchored, productive and creative. Do you know that feeling when you are absorbed in a task, distractions fall away, where time seems to pass almost without you noticing it?

When you absolutely love your work!

For me, this happens when I’m coaching others to achieve their goals, or presenting and training people on a topic that I’m excited about. And when I am creating a new course, webinar or training session – figuring out what my audience will both want and need to learn, and how to put it all together in a meaningful way. These feel like tasks that I was made to do.

It’s time for you to experience excitement and engagement at work, and I am here to help.

You inspire me!

Inspiration comes from other people. Working with a client who shares her unique perspectives with me as she discovers new ways to move beyond her own roadblocks. Or one who has been stuck too long in a job that she has outgrown, and suddenly finds the courage to step up into a new role. 

I’ve been inspired by a boss who combined empathy, a strong work ethic, a sense of humour and an ability to give feedback that helped me to grow. And by a co-worker who persisted through difficult tasks and uncomfortable situations, showing a steadfast approach and achieving her goals in spite of all the challenges she faced. She inspired me to hang in there too.
