What Our Executive Clients Say

  • My coach was great. She quickly built trust with me, was an active listener, and encouraged me to guide my own development while laying the appropriate groundwork to help me identify focus areas. She struck a great balance between letting me find my own answers and stepping in to make suggestions when necessary. I really enjoyed working with my coach.

    Steve Anderson

    CFO and Actuary, Health Plans and Population Health

  • This coaching has exceeded my expectations. After being in a leadership position at the local level for the last 20+ years, I must admit I wasn’t sure how much coaching I needed. But working with my coach has certainly enhanced my self-reflection and has really been helpful during my role transition. The strategies we have discussed have been relevant to my role and have been very applicable. There is nothing I feel that needs to change.

    Gayle Dasher

    System Director, Nursing Practice and Standards

  • My coach was excellent. I am an experienced leader, but there is always room to grow, especially while navigating a new organization. I had not worked with a professional coach before and therefore wasn’t sure how much value it would bring. However, I found the sessions to be very helpful, especially in talking through or validating ideas I had for addressing certain situations.
