Other known coaching benefits that don't have a budget line item such as teamwork, motivation, communication, emotional intelligence, job satisfaction add substantial personal and financial benefit through their ripple effect on all those not directly coached.

I hired Mike at this time of my life because I am transitioning to a new job and need to be more effective. Being out there on the job hunt means I am on new ground and must be at the top of my game. Mike's coaching ensures me of that. He has presented to me the tools to change my perspective, to be more creative and generate new pathways to my goals. I would highly recommend Mike for coaching on all levels and in a variety of situations to achieve maximum results in life. - Karin

I feel like the hike went great! The whole experience was like nothing I have ever done. Looking back I think it has made me a more confident person, and definitely don't always take a back seat anymore. At my current job, I regularly give my advice and try to help out as much as I can. I am truly grateful for everything you have helped me realize/learn through this process, and want to say thank you so much! - Ben
