Kristi Hemmer.


IWhen I started, I had a couple of options for coaches, but after meeting Kristi Hemmer, the choice was obvious.  Kristi was a natural fit for me.  Since we began, I have moved into a new job that is more fulfilling than I would ever have expected, learned communication skills that have changed relationships, and still feel like I’m just at the start of where I’ll someday be.  The experience has been transformative.  Amy (USA)

 

 

 

Kristi  Hemmer 168ed her life in2010 and spent the last year:  helping the earthquake survivors of Picso, sand boarding in Haucachina, hanging out with penguins in Antarctica, salsaing in Buenos Aires, leading a faculty meeting in Vanuatu, speaking Bahasa in Bali, and starting her business.   

She is a certified life coach by Academy of Coaching and NLP with her M.Ed. in counseling and almost 20 years of ”coaching” in schools as a teacher, school counselor, and principal. 

Kristi is available for life coaching, school coaching, and to lead workshops on how to “168″ your life and a variety of other life changing topics.

Testimonials

  • Kristi Hemmer is extremely good at what she does; she helps you both identify your goals, and inspires and encourages you to go after them.  She didn’t hesitate to be frank (yet gentle) with me about ways I was impeding my own happiness.

    Polly (U.S.A.)

  • I was extremely stuck in many areas of my life prior to the initial coaching sessions with Kristi.  Kristi took the time to listen without judging; she gave me thought provoking assignments for clarity; and inspired and guided me on how to improve my life.  She was there for me.  I would highly recommend Kristi Hemmer and 168Coaching to anyone looking for some major changes in their life.

    Lori (U.S.A.)

  • It was my first coaching session; I spent an intensive, important, “rich” hour with Kristi Hemmer. She asked the right questions, which made me think about the important points of my life.  Thank you, Kristi!

    Ute (Germany)

  • My sample session with Kristi Hemmer allowed me to gain perspective and have a clearer understanding of my immediate goals and hopes for the future. Throughout our session she was an active listener offering solid and supportive feedback.

    Beka (Canada)

  • I’d never even considered coaching before I met Kristi Hemmer.  I’d say I’m a pretty outgoing person and I’m happy, so I didn’t really think it would make a huge difference.  But from my first session with Kristi I realised that there were a lot of things in my life where I was just settling, and Kristi has really helped me to get to the bottom of things that were stopping my from being completely happy.

    Elise (England)

  • Kristi  Hemmer is an intent listener who is bright, insightful and engaged.  She has an outstanding ability to connect with me  matched with a sincere dedication to creating a plan to which she holds me accountable.  She asks poignant and targeted questions and is a hub of creativity to help unlock new solutions and ways of thinking. She draws on my strengths and allows me to take the reins in creating my own way to a fulfilled life.  I would recommend Kristi without hesitation.

    Hazel (Canada)

  • Taking the time to 168 with Kristi Hemmer  has been exhilarating! Kristi has been instrumental in helping me recognize and use the tools I’ve always possessed to make minor changes that have resulted in major, and immediate impacts. The decision to invest in “me” through 168 Coaching is something I’m proud of and would recommend to others 100%.

    Lisa (USA)

  • Prior to working with Kristi, I thought personal coaches were for someone else and a waste of money.  Wrong, wrong, wrong!!  Kristi’s powerful questions helped convert my life from directionless wandering to a self-chosen path to my hopes and dreams.

    Kathleen (USA)

  • When I started, I had a couple of options for coaches, but after meeting Kristi Hemmer, the choice was obvious.  Kristi was a natural fit for me right from the beginning and moved seamlessly into a coaching relationship with major impacts.  Since we began, I have moved into a new job that is more fulfilling than I would ever have expected, learned communication skills that have changed relationships, and still feel like I’m just at the start of where I’ll someday be.  The experience has been transformative.

    Amy (USA)

  • Kristi’s 168 plan is so effective and begins Day 1. Her approach serves to identify how time is spent to enable one to restructure as needed. Kristi Hemmer is professional, supportive and intuitive. She guides her clients to be accountable in order to accomplish their priorities. She helped me through a very challenging and important decision. As we moved through I was empowered with the clarity necessary to be sure of my actions and then to follow through. Thank you Kristi! I’m so pleased our paths have crossed.

Jonas and Jill are my niece and nephew.  When they were born, I gave them the book, Oh!  The Places You Will Go. by Dr. Seuss and started a travel fund.  Since Jonas was five, he has been researching where he wants to go with me.  At first, it was Thailand.  Then South Africa to dig for diamonds.  Then Pearl Harbor to see the WWII relics. 

We are continuously planning and figuring out how we can make his dream trip come true. 

This is for those who either want to take their dream trip to (fill in the blank).  Or for those who want to take time off from their job to take a whole other journey.  Now is the time to “Be the possible in your impossible.”

In addition to the coaching session, you will get an email with your summary, a follow-up  email between sessions, and a planner to help you make the most of your next session.

Your adventure begins NOW!

The Grandma Bernie Special.

Grandma Bernie was a practical woman who wanted to try something first before committing her hard life’s savings.  She also was the one who inspired me to 168 my life.  To be the possible in my impossible.  She is the reason I only charge $20 for a Sample Session. 

In honor of Grandma Bernie,  be inspired, 168 your life, and start living your life with a FREE Sample Session.  Experience for yourself what is possible.

The Linda Kay Special.

My mom Linda is all about coupons, bargains, and staying on budget.  She’s a realist.  It’s a tough economy, but she says, “Do it today because it’ll be more expensive tomorrow.”  My mom is also known for her humor.   

And my mom is always looking for ways to improve.  For those who want to change their life but not give up the farm, the Linda Kay Special is the one for you.  

In addition to the coaching session, you will get an email with your summary, a follow-up  email in between sessions, and a planner to help you get the most of your next session. 

Invest in yourself tomake the most of today and tomorrow.

The Amy Marie Special.

My sister Amy has worked in schools almost as long as I have.  She is a math specialist, professional development specialist, and a mentor for new teachers.  She understands the need for School Coaching. 

This is for new teachers, teachers new to a school, and any other educator who needs a little more support than the faculty lounge offers.   

In addition to the coaching session, you will get an email with your summary, a follow-up  email in between sessions, and a customized planner to help make the most of the next session. 

If you are an educator, this may be the plan for you.

I have always known and felt the Girl Effect in my life.   However, as a teacher, school counselor, and principal the past 20 years, I experienced first-hand how girls and women shrink in a classroom, a community, and the world.  Something needed to be done.  So, I quit my six figure job and started 168Coaching and NOW am launching SUPERgirls Academy. 

Save the date:  February 13th from 6-8:30pm.  In partnership with St. Kate’s Leadership Institute, the workshop “What will YOU do with your SUPERgirl powers?”  will unleash your SUPER and hero.

168it: Accountability.  Get it!

My nephew is in middle school.  Since kindergarten he has been planning what to do with the travel fund I set up for him when he was born.  As he’s grown, so has ideas:  Thailand for the sea life, Washington, DC for American history, South Africa to dig up diamonds, and recently Rome to see the ancient history he loves.

He is one of the reasons I’m writing my book on social entrepreneurship.  For years, I’ve been told I should write a book for students.  After my first international trip to East Africa in 1995, I started a book about Wally the Wildebeest.  But, Wally faded fast from my To Do list

And then last summer, my nephew Jonas and I started “Book Club.”  We would read books together,  text each other updates, and would discuss the book at a local café over a decaffeinated drink (caffeine stunts the growth in adolescents).  We’ve read Holes, Maniac Magee, Crash, and are working on The Hunger Games trilogy.  I wondered what Jonas would REALLY love to read.

Since a toddler, he’s preferred non-fiction.  He wants to make money (hence his diamond expedition in South Africa), and I want him to save the world.  After reading Half the Sky, I was inspired to write a social entrepreneurship book for Jonas.  He would be able to make money while saving the world!  A win-win.

And so, the book that I’m researching and starting to outline is dedicated to Jonas.  A young man who loves ancient history, playing tennis, meeting other young social entrepreneurs, and Doritos.  Just like his Auntie Kristi.

I don’t know.  It thwarts our movement forward.  It silences our voice. It excuses ownership in our own life. 

I work with superstars:  high-achieving, intelligent, compassionate, ferocious, and amazing women.  When I asked one particularly creative client what she wanted to focus on for the week, she responded, “I don’t know.”  We worked through it.

But the next week, it appeared again.  I don’t know.  And again.  So, I challenged her to ban all “idk’s” from her life.  It was a saboteur that worked for her in the past when she needed time to think.  Needed the expert opinion of her medical team.  But not anymore.  She did know. 

In the past two weeks, she has used her voice and not “idk” and has seen movement towards creating a life beyond what she imagined. 

“How does it feel?”  I asked.

“Amazing.  I feel empowered.  Authentic.  And that my opinion matters.”

She knew all along that she DID know. 

I knew all along that coaching empowers women, gives them a voice, and makes them realize that their happiness does matter. 

How does it feel?  Amazing! 

168it:  Ban “idk” from your vocabulary and see what a difference it makes.

King Tut’s mask and the Panama Canal.  Since I was a little girl, I’ve wanted to see these two things.  I vividly remember seeing King Tut’s golden mask in my social studies book when I was in second grade.  At 29, I traveled to Cairo and stood over it in awe.    

 

At 41, I stepped onto the viewing area at Miraflores Lock.  I looked left, the right.  Then right, then left.  The Panama Canal.   

 

As a little girl why was I so obsessed with this canal?  Makes sense.  I loved learning about the explorers:  Balboa, Drake, Vasco de Gama.  Not Columbus.  He was too ordinary for me.

 

And the Panama Canal symbolizes my being:   innovation, doing the impossible, working smarter not harder, travel, adventure, and exploration. 

 

After returning to my hostel in Casco Viejo, I roamed around the markets searching for a Panama hat.  I met Conrad at the first store I stepped into.  He told me his grandfather helped build the Canal and lectured me about how the original Panama hats were actually made in Ecuador from special reeds and dubbed Panama hat because they were used building the canal in the early 1900’s. 

 

He plopped one on my head.

 

I looked in the mirror.  “What do you think?”

 

“Bonita,” the storeowner said. 

 

“It’s a bit high don’t you think?” 

 

“It’s a Panama Hat senorita,” Conrad replied.  “It’s supposed to look like that.” 

I smiled.  He’s right; I bought it. 

I can’t to wear it this summer.  To remind me to chase my third grade dream:  publish a book.
