What I valued most in our coaching sessions was Doug's ability to be candid and challenging. Doug was not simply a sounding board, but was willing to have difficult and productive coaching discussions and ultimately was an instrumental resource in helping me reach my professional and personal goals.
As a coach, Doug knows when to listen, when to probe deeper at things both said and not said, and when to challenge his client. Whether someone is operating a peak performance, recovering from a set-back or on a high-growth career trajectory, they will most certainly benefit from Doug's expertise.
With Doug's support, I have successfully navigated job changes, promotion opportunities and growing my family. I credit Doug as one of the main contributors to the success I feel today in both my career and my personal life.
Doug's coaching style fosters ways for me to look at or understand diverse issues from multiple angles that I hadn't previously considered. He pushes me out of my comfort zone to explore and understand things about myself that ultimately help me learn and grow.
Anyone looking for honest help to see things through a different lens, or wants to be held accountable for their actions and wants to own their decisions and actions would benefit from Doug's coaching. This isn't for someone who just wants to make excuses and blame others. Doug is a critical thinker, who won't take any excuses and turns complaints into an action plan.
In my time working with Doug, his coaching has helped me to find and pursue my highest priorities, as I navigated a career change, cross-country move and business launch at one time. His accountability and support have paved the way to create new habits and mindsets that are so critical for the change and growth that I've been craving for years!
Having a young family and a successful career as a CPA, Doug can relate to the pressure I face both at home and work. Our coaching sessions are often open ended, allowing me to explore professional and personal topics, which usually are intertwined. I get great value from my coaching relationship with Doug and highly recommend him.
Doug is an intentional coach who is not afraid to ask the difficult questions. He does not guide me to answers, but allows me to process through things for myself, which ultimately leads to me taking full ownership over the situation. Doug has been an integral part of my progression as a husband, father and professional.
As a result of our coaching relationship, I have been able to raise my thinking from not just accomplishing daily routine tasks, but to tackling strategic initiatives that are important to my growing business. Doug is easy to talk with and a great listener, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in growing personally and professionally.
Doug has helped me to approach my business and look at the issues facing me more strategically. He has helped me to consider the opportunities and issues from all points of view and come up with an actionable plan.
