“…everyone needs a coach…”

Everyone needs a coach! I’ve had a terrific experience working with Ed in an effort to understand how my colleagues experience me in the workplace. We conducted a really engaging 360-feedback process from where I identified 2-3 areas that, should I do a little bit differently, would have a tremendously positive impact. To date, despite all the extra workplace complexities that come our way, these efforts have and continue to improve my relationships and the contribution of my team to the organization. Ed’s sound coaching advice and advisory helped make that happen.

“…helped me drive conversations that needed to be had…”

As my role and responsibilities at STAG Industrial have been evolving, especially over the last few months, I decided that it would be great to work with a leadership coach to help ensure the leadership skills and behaviors I was already undertaking were known by others, and new leadership skills and behaviors I needed to do were on my radar.  I chose Ed to work with me as I felt his experience working with senior leaders and his style and creativity would help me make great progress.  My assessment was correct.  Ed helped me identify areas that needed organizational visibility, behaviors that needed attention, and he helped me drive conversations that needed to be had.  I hope the opportunity arises to work with Ed again in the near future.
