I have been working with Gloria for over 8 months now. She has really helped me to focus on defining what I want for my job and career and why its important to me. From there she has helped me to set both short term and long term goals which are helping me to take my career in the direction I want to go. She has helped me to recognize key strengths in myself and determine what kind of work makes me most happy and therefore most successful. I would highly recommend Gloria as a professional coach! She is empathetic, encouraging, and has really helped me to think about my career and goals in a new way which makes it very exciting.Jan 6, 2016
Every 5 yrs or so, I engage an executive coach to sharpen my skills, grow personally as a leader and for continuous self awareness. As a change agent, Gloria has an innate ability to quickly discover, net it out, and prioritize the top areas of focus to work on, holding everyone accountable. Her relationship skills giving nature, and life experiences are invaluable as an exec coach. She has helped me grow, to see things more clearly in the midst of turmoil and change, and to celebrate the success of even small victories.Dec 28, 2015
Gloria has a great method for helping me to track and prioritize my career goals and helping me focus on these. She is very insightful and has great feedback and suggestions for pushing through challenges and reminding me to celebrate accomplishments. Through a lot of reflection, collaboration and guidance from Gloria, I feel more and more confident as a leader after each session.Dec 21, 2015
Gloria is an outstanding coach. I feel total comfort with her and am able to open myself up without feeling any judgment or anxiety. Gloria has helped me gain a much deeper understanding of myself and has given me the tools to keep myself centered. She has helped me shift my focus towards a stronger perspective of myself which has allowed me to move forward and make some significant changes in my life. Gloria has the gifts of intuition, insight and intelligence to assist others in their journey. I have been blessed to have Gloria as a guide.Dec 21, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes. The pricing is variable depending upon the client's situation and whether or not their company is funding the coaching engagement. Please contact me for more information. Typically a 3 month minimum commitment is needed for a client to start seeing real results. I charge by the month.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When a potential new client contacts me, I will arrange for a 30 - 45 minute conversation via phone or Skype. In this conversation I will explain what coaching is (and is not), the benefits my clients have achieved, and that I too have achieved (I continue to work with my own Executive Coach). I'll answer any questions, and will send the potential client additional information to consider in email. If we both agree this is a good fit and the potential client wants to proceed with an engagement, we will schedule our first session and get started from there.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have completed a year's intensive on site and distance learning professional coach training program through The Coaches Training Institute, one of the largest and most reputable institutions of its kind, training coaches globally for over 20 years. In addition I have had my own Executive Coach for over a year. And finally, I have made many career and life transitions myself - from flight attendant to school teacher to a 30 year career in the high tech industry in sales management and executive positions in both large and smaller private equity owned companies.
