WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY

I continually marvel at my newfound capacity to understand what’s happening with me and manage my inner experience

Thanks for asking me to talk about the experience of working with you, because in thinking about it, I realize I’m rather proud to say I’m a recovering rage-aholic. Your work with me changed my lifetime habit of getting exactly what I wanted by being a terrorist, basically, and then being alone with no way to enjoy it. I continually marvel at my newfound capacity to understand what’s happening with me and manage my inner experience so that I no longer bludgeon the mission-critical people around me and send them running for the hills…

without you, we would never have found a way to listen to one another and work things out for the good of this company

Dave, my dad and I are so different, never talked, never agreed on what it would take to make our thing explode the way it should have years earlier. We were working against each other and the climate we created was a sh*tshow for our people, who were always confused and stuck in the middle. Turns out we can agree on some things, but without you, we would never have found a way to listen to one another and work things out for the good of this company. We’re still old school, new school, but he’s stopped firing me and I stopped quitting. We both know we’ve got to keep talking to understanding each other’s thinking, and we do. At the end of the day, it makes all the difference. Shocking, our numbers are way up and the team has definitely embraced our example of talking it out and working together. Forever grateful to you.

Dave was a great help to me in letting go of some control and guiding my sons without suffocating them.

I brought Dave in to work with my sons. I wanted to step back, but had low confidence that they could handle what I spent my adult life building. Some of the work turned out to be mine. He helped me let them lead, which was a huge adjustment for me. Dave was a great help to me in letting go of some control and guiding my sons without suffocating them. Honestly, it was not what I originally had in mind, nor was it easy to do. But necessary. Throughout, Dave was relentlessly forthright, a steady and capable hand as I worked the problem.

Beyond a vague notion of “raising my game”, I had no idea what I’d be working on. But there was plenty. And, in the end, I got exactly that: a better game, in so many ways. You can’t think this way alone.

Everything was going well and our team seemed happy with me. I intuitively thought coaching was a good idea, but I had a hard time figuring out why for me. I know another CEO that had a great experience with you, and I liked your keynote. Maybe not such great reasons to enroll a coach. Beyond a vague notion of “raising my game”, I had no idea what I’d be working on. But there was plenty. And, in the end, I got exactly that: a better game, in so many ways. You can’t think this way alone. You can’t see yourself. And you don’t realize until you’re taking what you call “the helicopter view” how many ways you could be more effective. It was a great experience working with you.

You got us to a spot we could go forward from. And worked with us to get us (to) keep talking and going forward.

We were sick of each other. Blow-ups at every turn. For too long, nothing got done. Your work with me and both of my partners gave us a reset. You made us calm, showed each one of us our assets- and baggage. Amazing, you did get all three of us to see ourselves and own it. You taught grown men how to talk to each other. You got us to a spot we could go forward from. And worked with us to get us (to) keep talking and going forward. Things are good. Great job. Highly recommended.
