Jack Clarkson | CFO
“Consistently working my plan has helped me be more conscious of my behavior and the behavior of other people. The daily worksheet that Chris and I created keeps me focused.
I need to make more opportunities to follow up with people and ask if they have noticed a difference. In the past, this felt awkward to me and a little too “staged”. Now, I have informed stakeholders to expect that I will do this, so I feel a little more at ease asking.
Stakeholders do notice hard work and appreciate it. I felt good that people acknowledged it and also understand they are looking for more. Chris’s ability to keep me focused. In addition, he help me think issues through, be able to see the big picture and articulate it effectively. Thanks Chris” – Jack Clarkson’s mini survey and AAR
Gerard Iman | SVP IT
“Another insight I have gotten from this is that I cannot be visible enough whether it be with the business, my peers, or my staff. The more visible I am the easier things seem to go. Also by using some of the communication skills I learned from my coach, Chris Coffey. I can deescalate situations more quickly to allow better rational discussion to get things resolved. I have worked hard to create an environment where people feel safe to express differing opinions and make suggestions.” – Gerard Iman mini survey and AAR
Jeff Breen | SVP Sales
“Changing my own behavior is not easy, especially when my day fills up with meetings and I’m playing catch up but the coaching plan has become part of my thought process DNA and I know I’ll carry with me. The coaching has been invaluable. Thanks Chris and thanks to everyone who pushed me to do this.” – Jeff Breen mini survey and AAR

I am committed to continue with this program’s concepts and values because I believe in it and I’ve seen the positive results for me and the firm.” – Jerry Rosy mini survey and AAR

Often when I was frustrated and overwhelmed with the noise and attacks by some, Chris simplified the process of next steps and how we can achieve the most positive result. He reminded me often to get clarity and to really be clear myself. His validation of the process and the resulting changes I felt in me and my management was most beneficial and rewarding.” – Joan Beck’s mini survey and AAR
