“Kerrie’s facilitation played a huge role in soliciting honest feedback (during our Teambuilding retreat.)”

Director, Kaiser Permanente

“Kerrie is very skilled at helping me to identify key factors that are keeping the team from performing effectively, and coming up with ways to instigate change that benefit both the team and my own personal needs. As a coach, Kerrie was always friendly and upbeat, but also really challenged me to appreciate various perspectives and take on the hard issues. Kerrie always managed to find a perfect balance between giving suggestions for ways to deal with management issues and challenging me to come up with the ideas on my own. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.”

– Carolyn Marley, Director, Kaiser Permanente

– Participants in “How to Succeed in Business …Without Being a Man” at Morgan Stanley

“We first offered the Coaching Clinic to our managers in 2002. Since that time, the communication that occurs between managers and employees has been more meaningful and beneficial. Not only are the annual performance review discussions more productive, but managers are finding time throughout the year to engage in “coaching moments” with their staff. These unplanned candid discussions cover topics from career planning to problem resolution to setting personal and profession goals. We look forward to more Coaching Clinics.”

– Stephen W. Dixon, Director of Human Resources & Administrative Services, CAMICO Mutual Insurance Company

“You’re been wonderful and amazing. I’ve kept our discussions at the top of my mind and think about (our coaching) all the time. What changed me and my interactions with my management team was your constant guidance and reminders on how to stay the course. I now feel armed for the next set of challenges.”

– Coaching client Tiffany Borodkin, Manager, Account Retention Unit, PacifiCare

 “As a result of the coaching, I am already seeing that my team management techniques have improved and I am getting positive feedback. The most positive aspect was the ability to voice my concerns and areas of improvement to get an objective assessment. Throughout the session, I was prompted for solutions to the issues I’ve raised – this is more gratifying than having the solution given to me.”

– Connie Chiu, Cisco

“I feel your questionnaire gave you good insight to my needs and you asked me insightful questions, so I could come up with answers to my issues, instead of just telling me what I need to do.”
