Over the years, I've worked with a number of coaches and advisors, valuable resources for anyone looking to get the most out of oneself or one's employees. I've now been a client of Mark's for nearly a year and Mark stands out as the best coach with whom I've ever worked.
Mark has both a direct yet supportive style (a rare combination), and is superb at helping me understand "why" he's recommending what he is. Mark also has a very sharp, quick mind that allows him to synthesize, in real time, what he's hearing, ask clarifying questions, and recommend insightful options. On a number of occasions, I've come to Mark with tricky situations and either Mark's already been there, or he listens carefully and helps me devise a unique solution.
Mark's strongest skills are communication, speaking, and relating to/with people. Mark has an innate way of knowing the best way to connect with employees, customers, and other stakeholders to maximize relationships. As a business owner, I've come to appreciate that the business world operates on relationships - not products or solutions. Mark has helped me tremendously in this area.
Mark is the real deal - he'll do what he says and I am certain he can help with any issue you're facing. If you're even considering coaching, I strongly encourage you to at least give Mark a shot, you won't be disappointed and you'll get more out of it than you might have imagined possible.
