Testimonials


"I recommend Alan as a career/management coach without reservation. Alan brings an excellent mix of experience, insight, listening and strategic-focus to the management/leadership questions with which we grappled. I have worked with a number of coaches and have never worked with anyone who both actively adapts his approach and pace while ensuring that the conversation and long-term objectives of the sessions stay on the agreed upon track. In other words, with active listening and targeted insights, he lets you drive the conversation, but still ensures you end up getting to concrete actions and understandings. I was particularly taken by Alan's ability to challenge my assumptions in ways that both pushed my limits yet never delved into the realm of being defensive. With a solid mix of frameworks/approaches, Alan found practical tools that worked with my needs, but always grounded them in a larger strategic approach that allowed us to add more tools/insights as we worked towards long-term goals. It is rare to build a professional relationship built on mutual respect that pushes boundaries, improves performance and maintains the critical foundation of trust. "

Mark CarratoEconomic Growth Director - Power Africa Kenya Lead, USAID/Kenya and East Africa

I had the pleasure of working with Alan for about nine months as my executive coach. Alan is engaging and supportive but he won't let you off easy in your work. He has all of the ideal qualities of an oustanding coach to help you get to the next level and to reach your goals. With his help I was able to achieve my goals and enjoy far greater personal satisfaction in my work because of it. I highly recommend Alan to anyone looking towards their own ongoing development or as a Human Resources professional responsible for providing resources to your organization to support other members of management."

John McGlewExecutive Director, Human Resources at Sisters of Providence Health System

"I run a 200 million dollar federally funded project and oversee about 150 people. Alan has been my executive coach for several years. I have also hired him to implement organizational assessments, plan and facilitate retreats and problem-solving, strategic planning meetings.

I have a PHD in Counseling/Organizational Consulting and have done this work in the past. I've hired and worked with many OD experts, coaches and trainers. So I'm pretty savvy about who can actually walk the talk. Alan is simply a Master Craftsman in this arena. I really can't think of anyone whom I trust more. He is consistently creative in his approach as my coach and as an OD consultant.

He is also completely bi-lingual and has done very high level foundation/implementing organization work for us in Central America. He was again, very effective."

Sharon RudyProject Director, Global Health; Personal Coach for Navigating Professional Life and Managing Mindfully

"I highly recommend Alan as an experienced, competent, mindful and engaging advisor to any executive who's trying to align and incentivize their team for success. With solid credentials in organizational development, Alan also has a passion for helping shape work environments that build common vision, a sense of mission, greater understanding, and a sense of pride among professionals in those environments. Alan delivers all of this, while at the same time creating an enjoyable and professionally gratifying growth experience for all those involved."
