I’ve said things aloud to you that I have never said to anyone; I needed to do that so I could think…you were my thinking partner, and now I am confident in my ability to deal better with challenges at work.
I have such a heightened sense of self-awareness now; your coaching session really made a huge difference for me.
You always have this sixth sense when to connect. You were instrumental in getting me to move through “the fog” and to get the process of clarity started. I would be more than happy to be a reference for you.
You have a respectful and purposeful way of calling a spade a spade; there is no escaping your observations, and so very approachable.
Linda has been very genuine, caring and motivated to help me.

This is the first time that I have worked with an Organization Change Consultant, and as a Sponsor, your role is extremely valuable to me and the team.
Your style and approach is so effective with this group as we reached consensus on this strategic decision. I’d like to recommend you to one of my colleagues.
Thanks for your help with our strategy and balanced scorecard…it’s a huge improvement from where we started.
