My coach has been an amazing coach/mentor. Often when I discuss what is on my mind, they patiently listen and ask very probing questions that lead me to introspect and discover next steps. They have a knack to read between the lines so often that they understand my core feelings even before I come to terms with it. They have been a great sounding board for my proposals/solutions. I also like the simple real-world analogies they share as they make the decision-making process fairly rational.
Coach & Mentor
Barbara’s expertise and coaching sessions were instrumental to my growth personally and professionally this past 6 months. Barbara helped me to be accountable with creative solutions on how to carve out strategy brainstorming time in my life. Barbara’s style was empathetic, yet empowering, unassuming yet direct – full of examples and conceptual role-play. She shared personal examples, which at least to me, helped in my visualization and application of her suggestions in my life. I even was promoted to a manager track role during our time which I credit to how she coached me to coach my team.
