I have worked with Nancy on two coaching projects –for a key direct report, and for myself – both with excellent results. She coached the direct report to adopt more flexible and motivational management style, resulting in improved team morale and performance. For me, Nancy provided an astute sounding board on how best to transition into a new environment and an expanded leadership role.
Nancy is intelligent and insightful about how organizations and the people in them work. She is at ease with managers and leaders at many different levels. Nancy customizes recommendations for the person, the situation and the business environment; and provides honest, actionable and pragmatic solutions.
Senior Vice President
Penguin Group (USA)
Nancy is a fantastic coach. While I always knew what I wanted to accomplish, she showed me how to achieve it. In a few short months of working together, I became a much better listener and better equipped to handle conflict. A short time later I was promoted and a short time after that I was able to land a much bigger role at another company. As a result of Nancy's help, I feel that every challenge is an opportunity and that I have limitless opportunities in my career.
