“New to leading, I struggled to get the respect and buy-in of my strong-willed team members. I learned a lot about managing team dynamics, gaining influence, and creating team guidelines.”
"I had temper issues that meant people weren’t willing to be honest with me. I got so much out of looking at this – not just professionally but also personally. People now tell me how surprised they are about the progress I have made."
"A great benefit has been my coach’s ability to ‘politely challenge’ ways in which I had previously limited my impact on the job or career satisfaction overall."
"Early in the process I felt I could deeply trust my coach – opening up communication and allowing opportunities to re-examine my attitudes and believes - which led to real change in my leadership."
"I had to look at how I was coming across to others – and how that started to hurt my career prospects. I hired a coach after not making a promotion and got some honest feedback that I could act upon. Feedback from my boss reassures me that I am back on track."
"With a pending global product launch, I started to work longer and longer – making more and more mistakes. My weekly check-ins with my coach kept me afloat and helped me to have my priorities clear. We launched on time."
"Two years after founding a nonprofit, I struggled to get operational practices and strategic relationships to a place from which I could scale up. Having a sounding board and added accountability was incredibly helpful."
"What started as a discussion about what I want from my business next turned into a much deeper exploration of my strategy and my business model. I got so much clarity out of it I refocused my service portfolio and redesigned my website to communicate better what my business is about."
"New to a large nonprofit, I was not prepared for the resistance I met to make the organizational changes I was hired to do. My coaching process meant a lot of learning about driving change – and gave me persistence to see the reorganization through."
"I didn’t have the time or money for an MBA program – but that’s what I felt I got: Customized learning on the job that made an immediate difference in how I approached my leadership challenge."
"My coach helped me understand the how to navigate the organizational politics in global organization. He helped me to see my conflict more clearly and to change behaviors that didn’t give me the desired response."
“Work with Collaborative Coaching has lasted far beyond our engagement with them. That's in contrast to many consultancies where projects lose momentum the moment the engagement is over.”
"As an senior executive of a global company, I have a lot of calls. I always look forward to my call with Yael and Yosh. Their ability to discern dynamics at play on my team and their attuned approach towards incrementally helping our team grow always contributes to a new thought or perspective."
"My staff quickly started to see Collaborative Coaching as competent and collaborative partners willing to find out how to support us - and not as hired hands."
