A great experience
I would say first and foremost Dorothy really helped me get to the essence of where I am today career wise, and helped narrow down the options for whats next in order to make a choice that worked best for me taking into account both personal and professional needs. It was a great experience working with Dorothy, aside from her knowledge, expertise and experience, I always felt she genuinely cared and was always authentic in how she showed up.

I got that promotion
A friend suggested I talk to Dorothy before my annual appraisal interview. Although my performance reviews were fine, I had still been turned down for two internal promotions and wanted see what I could do. Dorothy taught me some basic preparation strategies and how to handle the interview differently to get the information I needed to prepare for future applications – whether inside the company or externally. I got that promotion! Great support!

“I have known Dorothy for 5 years and regard her very highly as an exceptionally insightful coach and talent management strategist. Uniquely, Dorothy combines her work as an executive search specialist with career transition coaching; she is thus ideally placed to not only help organisations locate and recruit high potential, high performing executives, but help those executives in their on-boarding and transition to their new roles. Dorothy is additionally very well connected and has made several introductions to me of contacts of hers who have proven to be extremely helpful professionally. I am delighted to recommend Dorothy very highly and look forward to working further with her in the future.”
“Who do you go to when all you know is what you don’t want to do? Dorothy! With her career coaching, she helped me lose my negativity, rediscover my self belief, build my self-confidence and become energised. It all seemed so seamless. I had been stuck in what she calls “yes/but” for years, but taking small steps I found out where I wanted to go and to get out there and do it! She was supportive when I needed it and also demanding when she had to be. Highly recommended.”

Game changing workshop
I had the opportunity to follow Dorothy’s workshop “What's a Unique Selling Proposition and how does someone like me get one?” The workshop really became a game changer for me because it inspired me to push myself to articulate more intuitively my achievements and to also clearly formulate my ambitions. They made me aware that I was unconsciously minimizing myself and that I built up my own “intrinsic ambition barriers. Dorothy’s energy and her capacity of coaching you how to be comfortable and even having fun to sell yourself are really marvellous!

“I hadn’t worked for almost 15 years in a corporate environment while my children were going through school and all my focus and energy had been on my family. Via her excellent career coaching program Dorothy helped me sort out in my own mind exactly what I wanted to do with my life and guided me while I discovered the things I was really good at – I just didn’t know it, or had simply forgotten. It’s been an illuminating and formative experience. I’m now on a completely different track looking into opening my own business”.
Excellent support during a difficult transition
Dorothy provided excellent support, advice and encouragement during a challenging career transition. I was grateful for the flexibility she displayed when scheduling sessions around my complicated timetable. But mostly importantly, after all her sessions, she's left me with the tools and ability to tackle future issues with confidence.

I got the nudge I needed
“I was stuck on the edge of my comfort zone when Dorothy gave me a nudge over the top. I felt uncomfortable and pushed back angry, reluctant to accept responsibility for my self sabotaging tactics. When I railed she was calm and philosophical and told me this is where change takes place and one day I would learn to own my achievements. It took me a while- but I got there. She was right! A good career coach will occasionally make us feel uncomfortable”

The best investment I ever made in myself!
Dorothy is one of the best investments I ever made in myself. Thanks to her guidance, I found a super job in a top company in record time while building my foundation for a healthy work/private-life balance. Dorothy’s methodology and approach proved to be exactly what I needed to achieve results in my job-search. If you are searching for someone to help you get to the next step in your professional life, or guide you to find the power to break through the glass ceiling, or if you are simply looking for someone or career coach to help you better understand yourself in order to be a happier and more effective at work: Dorothy is the one to go to“

My new employer said it is fantastic and what attracted them to me! THANK you for all your help and for introducing me to LinkedIn and 3Plus. I am telling all my friends!”

I was lost…
“When I contacted Dorothy I was pretty lost. Didn’t know what I wanted, what I could do or where I was going. With incredible patience , insight and quite a bit of firmness she’s supported me while I flailed around until I finally formulated a plan… ”
Mary O'Neill, U.K.
Dorothy is simply excellent…! I had a privilege to work closely with her recently, she is trustworthy, insightful and resourceful.

I would strongly recommend her for those who are looking for the first-class professional business coach to further develop their executive career.”

Excellent listening and coaching skills
“Dorothy has worked with me productively while based in Brussels as well as the U.S on activities across Europe. She has the required discipline (firmness) to rule out candidates, saving me time; yet also excellent listening and coaching skills for managers.”
Ray Kubis, Executive Board Member, USA
Prompted a journey of self-discovery
“About two years ago Dorothy helped me rewrite my CV and with her help this turned out to be the start of a life changing journey. During the process she made me realise that what I considered to be minor achievements or even just normal processes of evolution could, in fact, be considered by impartial observers to be significant achievements and major successes. This whole process started me thinking about my life in general with a completely different perspective. It helped me make the decision to embark on two journeys of self discovery…”
Christophe Monnier, Brussels
“A transition period is never an easy period in a professional life, being it chosen or not. Dorothy helped me dig deep into myself to extract my skills and achievements. I built a new CV, I set my goals and strategy, I made myself visible on the market. This would have not been possible without the very efficient and effective coaching of Dorothy. All of this does not make the transition easier, but Dorothy gave me the tools to go through the best possible way.”
Philippe Decre, Brussels
“I was deeply impressed by the professionalism of Dorothy Dalton. I read of HTS (Hansar Transition Services) and we met for a working session. I immediately perceived the added value of her tips and the thoroughness of her recommendations. She can at a glimpse evaluate your cv and indicate the improvements that can really make the difference in a job search. I sincerely think individuals in career transition and outplacement bureaus could gain great efficiency when using her know-how and state-of-the-art competences.”
“Dorothy is the ideal business partner. She goes straight to the point, picks up all the vibes and executes with creativity and speed. She is a pleasure to work with for a demanding customer. She will deliver quality, on time, every time. “Chapeau“!”
Anders Borg, President Hansar International. Former Chairman of the Association of Executive Search Consultants,Brussels
Dorothy is an outstanding coach. Clever, professional, expert, direct, emphatic. Pushing you out of your comfort zone since the very beginning of the coach session, she allows you to better understand where to improve and where to consolidate your own professional skills and attitude. At the end much of the work has to be done individually, but Dorothy’s support and advice are precious tools alongside this journey.

A great candidate experience
“Dorothy is exactly what you “wish” an International Talent Management Strategist should be: she has a deep and detailed knowledge of the subject, she is consistent and reliable, available and punctual at each step of the process and really a kind person, as well as a very talented professional. I appreciated very much her approach and style and I strongly recommend her …

Informative and inspirational
I was delighted to attend a workshop facilitated by Dorothy in Dubai. She covered the concept of Unconscious Bias in a way that made sense and highlighted the challenges for especially women in the workplace She has great presentation skills and is an inspirational speaker. I have never been to a workshop before in the U.A.E which was so interactive and gave me food for thought for many days after. Thank you!
