I have been working with Curtis for months now. His approach is just what I needed, but from a professional and personal stanpoint to obtain my main objective which was clarity and direction on my next "chapter." I am 45, and it is time for a career chang; however, the vocation, strengths, and timing must be all in alignment. On the personal side, I feel much more content with my current status, as well as deveoping specific goals and objectives without the pressure of a typical "hammer you" coaching style. Curtis guides you, counsels you, provides feedback on where you should focus, and most importantly puts the effort into understanding what your priorities should be for professional and personal success and subsequent harmony. Several people close to me have already seen a change in me, as well as feeling a sense of clarit, focus, direction, and gravitation to understanding of what "makes me tick" and not feeling guilty about what doesn't. His approach is one where he facilitates you, not where he places demands on you and he is flexible and understands that you too have life committments and contraints, and works within those boundaries.
I've been treating with Erica for about three years now. I was referred to her by one of my close friends who said that Erica helped her to change her life. I was going through a really hard time and was feeling lost so I needed some guided direction. Erica has done just that! What I really enjoyed was that in our meetings she assisted me with figuring out for myself what my goals were and what I needed to do to accomplish them. I'm now on the appropriate career path I desired and am overcoming hurdles in my personal life. I'm so thankful that she has been apart of my life. And like my friend who referred me, she truly has changed my life as well!
Dan Teadt is a Grammy award-winning world class singer with a beautiful voice. His experience on both the opera stage and in the concert hall has prepared him to be an appropriate teacher for singers of any level from beginner to someone singing on the stage at the Metropolitan Opera. Dan understands how to tailor lessons to meet the needs of whomever he is teaching. For instance, I was speaking with Dan last week regarding an issue with my career. He recommended I make a specific change to my operatic repertoire amending my aria list. He listened to my concerns and without flinching addressed my problem from an angle I had not considered before. Brilliant. Dan and I have known one another since 1999. I have shared the stage with him several times and have seen him perform numerous times. I have had many teachers in my training at Juilliard, Manhattan School, Aspen Music Festival and in NYC. I say with all confidence that Dan is on par with the level of teaching at these institutions. He will bring a new approach to whatever issues you have in the big picture or if you are starting from scratch. Pittsburgh is indeed lucky to have a talent like Dan Teadt caring for the young stars of tomorrow. Matthew Burns Bass-Baritone Dan and I have known one another since 1999.

I have known Lenny for almost 3 years, and I can truly say his friendship and mentorship has been a blessing. During this time, there have been several times in my life where I have called upon Lenny for his guidance and advice. Whether it be professional advice or guidance in my personal life, Lenny has always had just the right words. He was kind enough to share career advice and professional tips while I was completing my senior year of college. I specifically remember I was sharing with him my frustrations toward a particular course I was taking at the time. I was so frustrated I was even questioning my major. He assured me that I needed to stick with it and see my field of study through to completion. He told me that, while things were difficult at that time, I would ultimately be glad I persevered and I would reap the rewards of the successful completion of my major in the future. His professional mentorship has continued through my career search and into the career I ultimately achieved. Lenny's mentorship has also extended into my personal life, and that is what I cherish the most. I lost my father in 2014, and Lenny was one of the first people I reached out to for a shoulder to cry on. I knew his gentle, reassuring nature is what I needed. Not only did he respond immediately, but he even attended my father's funeral to support my in that difficult time. I have also called upon Lenny for relationship advice of varying types. He always has personal anecdotes of his own experiences, and draws from them to guide me in my life. We try to meet every few months for coffee and regularly keep in touch through texting. I can honestly say I walk away with a brighter outlook on life each time we meet. Lenny is strongly grounded in his faith, his values, and a desire to bring a positive energy to those around him. He is one of the most inspirational people I know, and it is truly an honor to call him a friend.
While I was initially hesitant to participate in a Life Coach session, Nancy calmed my nerves with her warm personality and positive feedback. She took the time to explain her unique role by insisting that I focus on the present. Nancy taught me how to realistically achieve my professional and personal goals. In regards to the session, I was able to open up about my deepest challenges and struggles because of her incredible ability to listen and guide the conversation with ease. Nancy has a true talent - I highly recommend her services. I think what sets her apart is her ability to work with a diverse group of clients. She knows what is holding a client back; she is not afraid to make you think on a deeper level to notice it for yourself. She has chosen the perfect career to help others be the best version of themselves.
Both Stephen and Sophia are phenomenal coaches! If you have the opportunity, hire them! The level of insight and professionalism they have is helpful in a way you cannot imagine until you experience it. If you are looking to be coached or dive into any personal development for your career or company - I highly recommend Getchell Professional Services.

When I started the journey to hire a career coach, I was not sure what to expect. Working with Rocco over this past year has exceeded all of my expectations. Rocco takes the time to personalize the plan for each client and really took the time to get to know me and in the process help me to discover talents and ambitions that had been buried by years of professional expectations. He challenges me to be the best in all aspects of my life. I look forward to continuing to work him in the future and highly recommend him.

I have been having health problems for awhile with no explanation of the cause. Ryan worked with me closely, counseling me about wrong things in my diet and how it may be affecting my health. With his help I discovered I have severe food allergies to certain foods. Under his recommendation, I have started to eat a cleaner and more natural diet and a lot of my health problems have cleared up and overall I just feel better. He went way above and beyond to answer questions, teach me food prep and just give his insight and support with this major transition in my life. I don't know where I would be without his help today.
I have always been the type of person with a ton of different interests, and have always been okay at doing almost all of them. As someone who has always loved writing and photography, but was always too scared to try and make anything out of it, I was envious of all those that took their passion and turned it into a career. Even still, Im not a risk taker, and all the thoughts of failure prevented me from trying anything other than the humdrum everyday path Id been on. However, within the last year or so, I have done a lot of self-reflection and realized I needed to make changes in my life. I wanted to obtain more career satisfaction and enjoy my life more. I knew this, but never knew how to go about accomplishing this or even planning for it. So for a year Ive felt stuck. Fast Forward to January 2015. Ive been a colleague of Leahs for over a year. However within that time, she has become so much more than a colleague. She has truly encouraged me and inspired me to take on the life I want. To make my own path and follow it and do me! My lack of follow through has not discouraged Leah though. She continued to encourage me and push me past my comfort zone. (Discomfort creates change right?) With her guidance (and persistence) I have developed a plan to accomplish what I want to accomplish. I am enrolled in a photography course, started a blog and finally have goals in place. I feel like I finally have a plan to accomplish things Ive wanted to for years now. While I know life happens and not everything follows a plan, it feels great to know that I am on a path which I am excited about and will hopefully lead me to have the career satisfaction I have long desired!

I met Mary Lee Gannon through a women's professional network. At the time I was facing many challenges in my career. After speaking to Mary Lee, I retained her as a career/personal coach and I haven't looked backed. I could not have made it through the many hurdles and challenges that I was faced with in Corporate America if it were not for Mary Lee. She has guided me through not only my corporate career but helped prepare me to start my own business. I consider myself to be very fortunate to have had Mary Lee as both my career coach and personal coach.
