What Clients Are Saying
Paula Sheppard, CEO of NLOWE
We now have a clear understanding as to why we do not do business with our board members. We are all now thinking more strategically and better understand the role of management vs. governance.
T. D., Manager
It has allowed me to become less anxious and less inhibited when working. I am enjoying moment more and worrying less about how/if I am going to get there.
Coaching affirmed for me that with practice, preparation, and commitment I can succeed. My limitations have inherent strengths which can play a part in my success
We have much work ahead of us, but I feel that we all much better equipped to handle the challenge. I am sure that I can speak for the others that we deeply appreciate your commitment and professionalism.
It is such a fantastic feeling that we are now working together as a team!
I learned how my “Gregorc Mind Style” will help me understand my natural way and how to relate to people who have different styles. I know i) what makes a good elevator speech and how to make people want to know more and ii) the importance of having ‘offerings’ that will give people a choice.
I now have a practical way of making sure my business objectives are met.
W. D., Senior Auditor
When I first started I was very frustrated, unhappy, and bitter. Now it takes me a lot longer to get frustrated as I no longer let issues build , I am happier because when I do incur stressful events I know how to leave them behind and I am no longer bitter as I have learned how to communicate things that frustrate me without getting upset.
The greatest change has been with my family life. I play with my kids more, I no longer take out the bad days on them, I do not shout at my kids anymore because I have learned other ways to address discipline issues. My wife is happier because I no longer snap at her.
Thanks for everything.
M. B. D., EAP Coordinator
The employee shared that you were able to assess her situation adeptly, and were able to understand and consider her profession and gender issues. She indicated increased problem solving in all levels and types of communication in the workplace, and reduction in her personal reactiveness and levels of stress.
The employee is now feeling able to consider further steps of intervention from a systemic perspective.
Thanks so much
M. K., Solicitor
What could have been a very tiring session was actually energizing. Dr. Kelleher-Flight’s knowledge of strategic planning was excellent. I learned a lot. She kept us on task and within the timelines. The goals of each session were reached.
We also began to think about what kind of board we are (which is very important to us at this time). Overall, I found it very useful. Thank you.
