Client Testimonials

What some of Mark's clients say about their experiences:

  • "I have a much better idea of who I want to be as a leader than I did before beginning coaching with Mark. Starting with creating an inventory of my personal values to defining my leadership philosophy, each session with Mark built upon previous conversations and helped me to envision not only the best version of a leader that I could be, but also how to get there."
    (Newly-Promoted!) Public Service Leader
  • "Mark helped me look at my ‘imposter syndrome’ in a new way. Rather than feeling stress and fighting the internal voice that contributes to self-doubt and criticism at work, I’ve found myself accepting that it provides value and serves its own purpose. This has been really helpful when I’ve questioned myself professionally or felt out of place in meetings with higher-ups, taking some of the bite out of my nasty inner critic."
    Emerging Leader
  • "Mark provided a great balance between validating my thoughts and feelings and forcing me to question why I had those views. It’s easy to get stuck in the thought pattern of how things currently are or how they were in the past, but Mark helped me to think about ‘future me’ and start to think in a way that will lead to a better version of myself."
    State of Ohio Public Service Leader
  • "My executive leadership coaching experience was a multifaceted journey. Mark is authentic, insightful, and compassionate. His coaching not only helped me uncover the reasons behind my career challenges but most importantly helped me recognize my untapped potential! It has given me the confidence to make some tough career decisions. Thanks to his coaching, I am a stronger leader who is looking forward to new career challenges."
    University Professor
  • "Leadership coaching has been so beneficial for me. With coaching from Mark, I was able to realize what my actual strengths are, how to utilize those strengths to be an efficient leader, and how important it is to be an authentic leader...I have become someone who is more confident in my ability to lead others and ready for my next leadership opportunity. Leadership coaching is something everyone should participate in!"
    US Army Officer
  • "The single most valuable thing I gained in working with Mark was recognition of my own strengths. Mark was very skilled at bringing out skills and traits that I already possessed but didn’t really know I had or at least didn’t recognize them in myself. Coaching has helped to give me tools to practice being courageous in hard spaces."
    Public Service Agency Director
  • "When I was provided with a sheet to write down my goals before coaching began, the biggest one I had was being able to find my voice in an effective yet kind manner. After coaching, I have found my voice and know my value as a leader."
    Public Service Senior Leader
  • "Having a “thought partner” who could effectively mirror back to me, process through tough situations, and help me to develop my own leadership philosophy was invaluable. I really feel that the process helped me to be more introspective, and also provided a safe space to build my confidence to face hard things."
    Agency Executive Director
  • "The coaching has been extremely helpful, and I feel very appreciative that I have been provided the opportunity. Mark makes me do all of the thinking when I would like answers ASAP, but that is his job and purpose….to get me to think."
    Leadership Cohort Participant
  • "I believe Mark “knows” me. During each of our meetings he refers to things specific to me, remembers our past conversations, etc. I’m sure he is working with a lot of people and this attention to detail is not lost to me."
    Public Service Manager
  • "I wonder how different my life would have been if I had met Mark 30 years ago."
    Federal Agency Leader
