TESTIMONIALS

Most of our business comes from referrals. This is because of the excellent service I provide. Below, you can read actual comments submitted by my customers.

MANAGING BEING LAID OFF

I was fortunate to be referred to Mark by one of his clients during a time of significant transition.  Mark was my career coach for nearly two years.   We began working together when I was job searching. I had been displaced after 27 years and had limited experience with external job searching.  As a client I felt that Mark was thoughtful, listened to my needs, career aspirations and was very motivational.  He helped me become proficient at networking, developing a marketing plan and refining my interview planning and execution.  Mark also served as a professional coach once I was hired and help me transition and show up strong at my new organization.  Mark’s breath of experience gives him real world  knowledge and perspective.  Mark has and will continue to serve as my career coach.  I value his enthusiasm and passion for helping his clients.

THE CONFIDENT INTERVIEW

I want to thank you for meeting with me this morning and helping me navigate my strengths and personal pitch as well as my career goals. Leaving our talk, I felt empowered to take my career into my own hands and mold myself into who I want to be.

 

I had an interview at JP Morgan Chase today and I played your pitch summary for myself three times before the interview. Using some of the key phrases we discussed, I successfully framed myself as a desirable candidate and received some really positive feedback (never before in an interview have I been told I have a "bubbly" personality. Usually they give me a lot of anxiety and I underperform.) Our discussion gave me the confidence to represent my experience in an effective manner and completely shifted my perception of my work.

 

I really appreciate you taking the time out of your morning to come to Babson and meet with us MBA students. Not only am I better able to represent the positive attributes of myself, but I look forward to working on moving the dial away from task orientation more toward people and asking questions and developing the leadership potential within myself.

ANONYMOUS - INTERVIEWING FOR JP MORGAN CHASE

RECENT GRADUATE STUDENT

During my last semester in Business School, I had the opportunity to engage in a series of meaningful conversations with Mark focused on making me more marketable for future opportunities. With the many resources that the school had to offer, none were more valuable or useful than the (coaching) I received from Mark. Upon starting my career in marketing, our coaching sessions shifted from seeking opportunities to career development. I credit Mark with assisting me in recognizing my professional potential.


Chad – Marketing Manager, Procter & Gamble

FIRST TIME MANAGER

Mark has helped to put me on an upward career path. Mark guided me through (some tough) issues by challenging me to come up with solutions. With new found solutions, I was able to execute an action plan beneficial to not only my direct reports but also myself. Mark is not only a great listener- he is an amazing provider of feedback. The feedback given challenges me to think differently and strategically. Mark does not spoon-feed solutions, I am challenged to generate solutions on my own by answering the strategic questions posed to me. In that sense, I am taught to be a better problem solver. Mark's coaching has been an invaluable experience. 

 

Angela – VH1 Talent Manager

EXPERIENCED EXECUTIVE

Mark's passion and dedication to coaching is magnetic. Mark has keen insights that are truly uplifting and can offer you the ability to see your own situation from a truly objective perspective. I have relied on Mark's experience and insights to drive dramatic change in organizations, gain insights on potentially caustic situations, and to even uncover blind spots on myself and my leadership style.

THE 911 CALL

I engaged Mark with a complicated scenario. Mark quickly diagnosed the core issues and outlined a proactive action plan. I acted on Marks recommendations and ultimately resolved a complicated workplace challenge. Mark's insights and coaching abilities are rooted in his depth and breadth of corporate experiences. 


Bill – Marketing Director, Johnson & Johnson

SEEKING PROMOTION

Mark's coaching services presented itself at just the right time for me. I was interviewing for a big promotion while exploring what other opportunities were available to me outside the company. Mark's insight helped me to explore my options and stay positive about my current situation. I got the job I wanted! As I move forward in my career, I asked Mark to push me and provide tough feedback on my "softer skills" (not an easy task), and that is just what he is doing every week. I look forward to working with Mark and growing personally and professionally.
