In their own words
If you’re curious about what coaching can do for you, please read what my clients say about working with me.
I thought the skill set I had developed as an entrepreneur and nonprofit board member would transfer easily into a community-based organization leadership role. However, when I took over the FAIR Foundation as Executive Director, I found myself struggling in a variety of areas. Brad’s expertise in compliance and fundraising issues has been invaluable. You don’t know what you don’t know. Thank you, Brad!
I came to The Mission Coach during my search for professional development. What drew me in was Brad’s relaxed and highly professional coaching style. Through our work, I rediscovered my passion for teaching and created both professional and personal goals. My coaching sessions with Brad also helped me become more aware of the role I play in moving my personal and professional goals forward.
I appreciate my gifts more fully now, and am happy to have a sense of direction and milestones to reach this year. Thank you for helping me uncover a better version of myself!
Priorities and Values Aligned
I met Brad during a transition that left me filled with fear, self-doubt, and uncertainty. Through coaching, I realized I wasn’t as lost as I thought I was. Now, I’ve rearranged my priorities to align better with who I am, what my heart wants, and what I value.
Decisions without self-doubt
I came to Brad eager to learn how I could best evaluate fit for my next job. I now have a stronger sense of where I’m going because Brad was able to cut through the clutter in my life, career, and challenges so I could steer myself in a more fulfilling direction. His authentic, direct approach came without judgment. He validated my feelings and supported me to make decisions without self-doubt. I’m now looking at a new life ahead!
Positive Change Framework
Brad has an upbeat manner and is very positive. It was great to look at my life holistically and then focus down on the areas that I really wanted to improve. I found that the sessions were very pleasant and I looked forward to experiencing Brad’s gentle guidance each and every time. The sessions provided lots of positive reinforcement and a positive framework to help me to focus and identify the changes I wanted to make in my life and career.
In summary, Brad has a gift that has enabled me to transform my life and thinking and I will be forever grateful.
I sought coaching because I was overwhelmed by a new work environment and needed guidance to find my way through this change. Brad’s powerful coaching methods impacted me greatly, creating an enduring awareness of my inherent talents which have since been fueling both my personal and professional life.
My experience with Brad was a non-intrusive journey in self-discovery. The things that I appreciated the most were how engaged he was and his personal commitment to helping me understand my strengths and how I can apply them to energize my leadership skills.
Discovery, Support, Progress
I came to Brad for coaching after I had endured a series of brutal losses, when I no longer had a positive image of myself. As a result of our work, I have entered a new career as a Realtor and have reconnected to the parts of me that I felt I had lost completely.
Brad offered me support to understand my situation, and he spoke clearly and quietly to encourage me into my own discovery and to find solutions I was seeking. His coaching is a gift I recommend to those looking for real moments of peace and progress as you become the true you.
Clarity, Priorities, Action
Brad has exceptional listening and empathy skills. He not only heard and remembered the pertinent details of our discussions, but paid attention to my tone, emotions, and non-verbal communication. There were times when Brad recognized potential obstacles or challenges before I did.
It was also very clear that he thought about my situation and our discussions outside of our sessions, and then came to our next session with ideas, alternatives, and suggestions. Our discussions helped me to keep on track with my priorities and action plan. I’m clear and confident with my decisions. And as a result feel excited about the changes I’m making and I’m looking forward to how they will enhance and enrich my life now and in the future!
In working with Brad, our sessions helped me to continue to move forward with small steps that became bigger over time. I was able to gain insight into my strengths and to have acceptance for where I was. Magically, through that process, I was able to muster the courage to do things that I had not yet done that placed me more firmly on the path of building a better foundation for my business.
Brad’s insightful questions, curious and caring demeanor, and continued focus on what I wanted and needed in coaching were immensely helpful in getting me unstuck in some key areas of business development. I highly recommend Brad to anyone wanting to make changes in their lives.
