I received one-on-one management coaching sessions through The Coaching Connection. Since then, I have realized that being in a position of management means not only being a manager of people, but to be a coach myself… the techniques I learned are very effective to use in a number of situations… To sum it up, I am very grateful for their help in opening my eyes to a new insight on skills that I never knew I had and for enhancing the ones that already exist.

“Your instructions on doing fieldwork and networking prior to resume writing and interviewing plus the following up was instrumental to me in landing my new career. The method of highlighting my selling points in a tailor-made resume for a particular job plus the high impact statements proved to be very successful in my job search.”

“They really helped my to see that I was stuck in “What’s next” in terms of living my dream, finding my true calling. I was so overwhelmed with the giant picture that I couldn’t narrow my focus. I now know that this opportunity is absolutely where I need to go next, to take me to the next level. Thanks!”

“As a new manager with new staff, I found the course to be of great benefit not only to me but also the staff person reporting to me. While I still have lots to learn, your course really provided me with some excellent advice. A couple of the best things for me to learn were to “fire the technician” and the work surrounding the personality styles, and to let people figure out how to do their work without me getting in the way… With the personality styles, and having my colleagues also attend your course, I learned about the personality styles and needs of others.
