Success Stories for Chicago Executive Coaching

 

 

“You have helped us to turn this company around.”

We just had the best month in the 10 year history of the company in sales, margin and profit.  You have helped us to turn this company around.

- President, Construction Products Manufacturer

“Highly Recommended”

Tom did a great job in connecting with me as a person, helping to guide me in understanding of my approach and interaction with people and providing me with a road map for life.  I've discovered the importance of qualify of life balance, prioritization of work flow, and family interaction improvement

Most valuable was the gap awareness process of who I am, who I want to become and how to get there.  Highly recommended for people who are in the process of transitioning to a new role.

“Able to accomplish more and enjoy my accomplishments more”

Truly, I've been able to accomplish more -- and enjoy my accomplishments more -- as a result of your coaching. I definitely have more work to do and habits to fine tune but the foundation is established for me to be open to the process of fulfilling my leadership potential. Thank you!

- Sr. Managing Director, Practice Leader - Global Consulting Firm

“I learned that all the answers lie within myself”

In the area of time management, I learned that I need additional structure in my day to be more effective and work on the multiple areas where I have to engage in on a daily basis.  Most importantly, I learned that all the answers lie within myself. It’s all up to me.

- Director, Global Packaging Manufacturer

“I liked your style.”

I liked your style, which is why I chose to work with you.  I know of a few other management coaches that are too forceful and opinionated – telling you how to “fix” your business in the first 10 minutes with little or no historic knowledge.  I appreciated that you got to know me first and my issues before spouting advice.  I also like the little follow-up emails – some good items come across once you reflect upon our discussions.  And I liked how I could divert the conversation to current issues if need be.

- President, Information Technology/Software company

“More Confidence”

I have enhanced my personal satisfaction with my job, increased effectiveness at inspiring and leading my staff. We now have faster and more efficient meetings.  I’m able to provide more clarity to my expectations. I have a happier staff, more personal effectiveness in all life areas all around. I have more confidence and a richer personal life.

- CEO, Financial Services Firm

“A 10 out of 10”

My experience rates a 10 out of 10. Tom is really talented and clearly loves what he does to bring the enthusiasm.  He combines his experiences and professionally developed coaching skills with his intellect and intuition to utilize them all well.  The delivery was skilled and compassionate. The content was amazing.  He also shows a good command of the content, its origins and its ultimate purpose.  He knows where he is going with it and is able to change up approaches and/or frameworks to get there on the fly.

- CEO, Financial Services Firm

Gained “Insight into my Strengths”

I gained by learning that I score highly on three dimensions including Creativity, which is quite rare. This has really given me insight into my strengths and particularly my ability to see solutions to problems that other people don’t see. This understanding has also helped me communicate better with others; I understand that others may not see what I see, so I have to help them see it.

- Global Strategy Director, Financial Services Firm

“I am forever grateful”

Over the course of the year, Tom has calmed me down a lot and helped me see that I was more in control than I thought, and that other people weren’t in control as I thought they were. Tom made himself tremendously available to me when I was going through some pretty difficult times and had few people to talk to. This was invaluable, and I am forever grateful.

I got to the point at the end of our engagement where my confidence was back and there was less to work on. This is a good thing!!!  I am much better at dealing with difficult people.

- Global Strategy Director, Financial Services Firm

“I was blown away…”

I was blown away by the professionalism exhibited by Tom. He's a great listener and coach. Even disagreeing with him was a pleasurable experience.

I'm much more patient. Our sales goals have been met two months in a row.

General Manager - Automotive Electronic Recycling & Distribution

“Learned How to Engage People to Perform at a High Level”

I made the most improvements or marked growth with my intangibles. I learned valuable lessons on leadership and what its true essence is about. I loved learning about the power of well engineered questions and how to use them in a professional setting.

The thought process around the goal planning process is incredibly useful and can be applied in many ways. I understand more now than ever how to engage people to get them to perform to a high level and to an aligned vision.

- Director, Global Packaging Manufacturer

“A new ‘never give up’ attitude”

Since completing the program, I find myself asking the question, “Am I making the most out of my time right now?”  Another thing that the program has done is to allow me to look at my failures as experiences to learn from.  It has given me a new “never give up” attitude toward everything I do.

– "High Potential" Coaching Client

“A Stronger Foundation”

Through the process I grew to question why I am who I am and that uncovered hidden gems around what makes me tick personally. Having those personal aspects in place has created a stronger foundation from which to build my professional house again.

Director Consumer Insights, Global Food Service

“Goal Planning & Business Arguments”

Before I started working with Tom I would have said that goal planning was one of my strengths. I still think I am good at it but  going through this process has taught me that I am weak at making business arguments.  Tom has helped me to formulate my thoughts, bring in data when needed and has helped me with sentence structure all with the plan of influencing others with a business argument. Working one-on-one with a coach was a much better decision then sending me to a few classes.
