“I had no recent, tangible experience with working with a coach. But Dave created a collaborative, structured, and yes, fun foundation with which to start our work together. He immediately gained my trust and trained me in the tools and techniques that guaranteed my successful outcome. Moreover, Dave’s wisdom was readily on display during one coaching session where he challenged me to “dig deeper.” This enabled me to convey my message with more clarity and authenticity; a wonderful breakthrough!.”
