A warm THANKS! to all of my executive coaching clients and to all of you who have chosen to visit and "hang out" at the Career Success! Partners blog site. I also invite you to visit and join the Career Success Community -- the premier online interactive career development community for high-performing business professionals.
As an Executive Coach, my absolute focus is to positively impact the lives of others
-- it is the purpose behind what I do; it is what makes me leap out of
bed every morning -- service to others, helping others love what they
do for a living, helping others be the best that they can be, and
helping others achieve incredible career success.
I literally fell in love with my job when I entered the coaching profession over 15 years ago, and the love for what I do has continued to strengthen with every client relationship, every client meeting and through all of the writing, speaking and media appearances I make.
I have chosen a selection of statements -- presented below -- that others have said over the years -- as feedback on the services I deliver through my coaching practice, and as testimonial to the quality of career information I strive to deliver through this media center, through my speaking engagements, and through the Career Success Radio Show.
Thanks for the wonderful feedback.
