What Clients Are Saying. . . 

"I am deeply grateful to have the opportunity to work with Barbara. I believe her coaching has equipped me with the skills to be a more effective leader; it has indeed been transformational. Her concept of 'participant observer' has helped transform how I behave in meetings and interact with colleagues. In fact, the changes have not gone unnoticed by my colleagues. One recently mentioned that it was 'inspiring.'" (System Vice President)

"Thank you for your coaching advice during a very difficult year. I am still here-and standing tall due to your expert advice and guidance"
