“Ed did not know much about our company when he became my leadership coach.  He quickly grasped our culture and understood my desire to improve in certain areas. The experience and acumen that Ed resonates provided a great foundation for me to learn and develop different approaches to managing complex issues with internal and external customers. Ed's style, approach and experience provided an environment of comfortability in discussing areas of concern that where challenging. The perspective, advice and recommendations that Ed provided created a stability for my business and allowed me to explore new areas of development   I think his business experience added a lot of value to our relationship and helped me continue my executive growth.  I was very happy working with him.”

“Ed provided a pragmatic, no nonsense approach to leadership coaching that I truly appreciate.  I wanted a coach that would give me the straight story, not a rah-rah cheerleader nor someone who would constantly ask me how I was feeling.  He helped me approach people challenges from different angles and worked with me on solutions that worked in my company’s culture.  I respect his opinion, and I valued the way he pushed and encouraged me to act differently.”
