Joseph FrostCo-Founder and CMO, YorCMO
'I’d highly recommend Natalya and the Energy Leadership work she does to any executive looking to improve their leadership capabilities. I’ve already seen an improvement in myself, my team, and my company in a very short timeframe after working with Natalya.'
Paul Fraynd, CEO, Partner Sun Valley Landscaping
"Natalya has given me the gift of a powerful framework and mental model to see my business, my life and the world differently. By focusing on my own energy, I have the power to choose how I show up and respond to the days stress, surprises and hardships. She is a great teacher and listener. Natalya has helped motivate me to be a better husband, friend and leader."
Brent Rising, Owner of Today's Dental
"My life has been going through a transformation since starting the coaching program with Natalya on Energy Leadership. Previously I felt stuck in fear and guilt, with never enough time in my life. I now have the knowledge of the levels of energy, tools to elevate them, and a new sense of self-awareness. Natalya has been incredibly helpful in challenging me to think differently and create a better life for me and everyone I come in contact with." -
Jay Gordman, Co-Founder, yorCMO
“The 360 Assessment was incredibly insightful for me professionally and personally. I learned so much about how I handle busy and stressful situations and how I can better approach these times. Having feedback from my peers, employees and other raters is very informative and has helped me grow as a leader”.
Yolanda Ansó Estarriaga, CEO, Solid
"Natalya coached my team to manage their energy, not just their time, and this new perspective was mind blowing for us. I look forward to working on my own energy levels with her too."
Luis Cortes, Co-Founder BCombinator
'Natalya’s edge is gently guiding you to learn to manage your energy and the impact it has on those around you, like your employees, partners, or in your personal life. With her intuition and empathy Natalya goes beyond what you are saying to get to the real challenge you're facing and help you find your balance.'
Kristin Bennett, President at Nonprofit Resources
'Nonprofits are constantly trying to do more with less. When an organization can tap into the idea of accomplishing more by changing the energy level, it becomes possible. Awareness is the first step, as most groups probably don’t even stop to think about the real cost (in dollars and time) of catabolic/negative energy and mindset. When our team worked with Natalya of Life by Design, it opened our eyes to the fact that we can change our organization’s energy, by changing our own. Then, we are more available to help our clients change their energy for the better. When a nonprofit organization shifts to positive energy, there are no limits to what they can accomplish. This is true for all of us, and we will be working with Natalya again. Anyone lucky enough to work with Life by Design will be better for it!'
Seneit Debese, CEO & Founder, Greta & Starks Apps
“This was a transformational coaching journey, which became my hero journey, where Natalya was my guidance to go through obstacles, as wise as Yoda and as persistent as Samweis. Such a very deep transformation. I am a different person now, a different entrepreneur, a different leader for my team, and a different business person for our clients. Different in terms of success, innovation, collaboration, flow, and joy. I am much more of who I am and whom I wanted to be now. I never had such an empowering journey before. I had several coaches earlier but I never grew in coaching with Natalya. It is a truly exceptional and very valuable experience.”
Yash Dubal, Entrepreneur, Owner, Director, AY&J Solicitors
I have had a great one-to-one consultation that followed a group Energy Leadership workshop and individual Energy Leadership Index Assessment with Natalya Berdikyan. After this consultation, I understood myself better, found what I truly love and found a sustainable solution for a peaceful life. If interested in exploring energy for yourself/your team, then I would highly recommend her full consultation/services.
David Mammano, Host of The Gonzo Experience Podcast and CEO of DavidMammano.com
“For me, Natalya is more of a guide than a coach. There are so many things going on in my life that I often feel like I am lost in a wild jungle. I feel that Natalya takes my hand, leads me to the center of the jungle and then helps me to decide which natural paths to navigate based on my energies; and more importantly, gives me the tools to navigate them. Her approach is one of compassion, understanding and focus. Natalya helps to make me feel understood and is non-judgemental. She’s a great listener and also has helped me to develop an accountability plan.”
