A direct quote from a recent coaching client…

Before the coaching session: It’s like being on a ship, going through a stormy weather and not being able to fight against this bad weather and find solutions to keep the ship OK.

After these several sessions of coaching: It’s like working on the potential that you have inside you to be able to react proactively to the situations.

A direct client quote:-

“I’ve hired Howard to work with me on several different projects to which he has added value in many different ways. I think one of the qualities I admire most about him is his ability to rationalise a complex situation. His logic and level headedness makes a positive difference because he is able to articulate succinctly the options available to achieve the best outcome. His genuine desire to achieve great results comes across both in the way he facilitates groups and the detail in which he prepares. A consummate professional in every respect. As a colleague Howard is just great to work with bringing a unique strength, objectivity and true support that is just priceless.”
