“I came to coaching because I wanted to build my influence and listening skills.  I also wanted to be better at communicating complex concepts.  Working with Rosanne, I learned how to leverage my strengths of drive, courage and authenticity.  I also became self-aware around how my thinking and beliefs were sometimes impacting me showing up at my best.  This helped me shift how I influence and communicate, regardless of the situation. I’ve “slowed down to speed up” and bring others along for the ride.  I’ve come a long way!  Rosanne was amazing as a coach.  She really helped me to grow, and I’ve now got tools that will help me sustain my growth and continue to build on it.”
– Bryce Saunders, VP Channel Strategy & Delivery, LoyaltyOne. 

“It was invaluable to have someone to talk over issues with, particularly at a time when there were some tricky issues to navigate. I loved the Positive Intelligence program and found it very helpful to identify personal traits to work on with Rosanne.  Through the coaching, I realized the impact my delegation skills were having on the junior team, and I can now easily identify my desire to “rescue” and adjust accordingly. I’m also now able to set appropriate boundaries around my time, which improves both my work and home life. I’ve really appreciated Rosanne’s support over the past 6+ months. Lifelong skills have been learned all of which can only improve all aspects of my life.”
–  Janice Topp, Partner, HOOPP Capital Partners. 

“I started this journey because I wanted to improve and become a better version of myself – how I show-up and how I lead.  Any preconceptions that I may have had about “coaching” have long since been replaced with the fantastic actual experience.  Rosanne helped me to safely be more vulnerable with myself and by doing so, identify and dimmish barriers that I was putting in the way of my own performance, and by extension my feeling of contentment.  I have acquired a new way of looking at situations.  One that I will continue to practice and improve long after coaching has formally ended.  Thanks Rosanne! ”
–  Andrew Behrend – Director of Marketing Operations, LoyaltyOne

“I was at an impasse in my personal development. I committed myself to become a real agent of change and to be open to whatever was going to turn up, and to the tools I needed to get there. I realized that at the root of my personal growth was the need for self-compassion. Rosanne was my personal champion in this radical yet simple discovery, and she helped me identify and hold myself accountable to my vision. Coaching with Rosanne has been such a powerful experience. I feel exhilarated at the possibilities in store for me and much more confidence in my ability to lead and transform, while being even more authentic to myself.”
Stasha Poznan, Director Marketing, Large financial institution

“When I was promoted to a senior executive position, I started work with Rosanne to best prepare myself for this new challenge.  We targeted areas that would generate the greatest impact.  Rosanne’s coaching helped me to understand my core values and get away from wasted negative reflection/energy.  This has helped keep me shift to having a more positive and productive frame of mind, and has helped me concentrate on positive actions and energy.  The result is that I’ve become a better/happier person, and that’s translated into great results and success.  Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate to have had coaching at many different levels and stages, and I can definitely say that my experience with Rosanne has had the greatest impact.”
Chris Kitagawa, AVP Administration, La Capitale Financial Security

“Before coaching, I believed I was very self-aware. Rosanne non-judgmentally helped me realize that the anger and frustration I felt toward others, was really driven by fear.  I changed from seeing myself as a victim of circumstance, to someone who’s in choice.  I no longer feel the physical signs of stress.  I’m now calm and collected in situations where I used to raise my voice in panic.  Senior leaders have noticed, and I’ve been told I’m ready for the next stage in my career. Rosanne’s breadth of experience, advice and academic insights truly astounded me. As unnatural as the process was for me at first, she made it feel safe. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to partner with me on this journey. ”
– A. Thomas, Director, Large financial institution 

“Rosanne helped me identify what was preventing me from reaching my full potential. She taught me strategies to get out of my own way, including tools to get out of my head and make connections with others. I have gotten the feedback that I’m speaking with more confidence and I am providing a higher level of leadership to my team. I also have a greater sense of peace with myself. I’m grateful for the strategies I’ve learned and for the opportunity to become more in tune and aware of who I am and how I can serve others.”
– Jackie S. Dean of Academic Operations,  Large U.S. for-profit academic institution 

“I have benefited from Rosanne’s coaching and, as a result, highly recommend her as someone who can help you to achieve your objectives whatever they may be. Rosanne has an innate ability to sort through the ramblings that make up our everyday lives and drill down and show you what is really important. In a very objective way Rosanne does this by listening and making you ask yourself the right questions to understand yourself. She is action oriented, understanding that to achieve big goals they must be broken down into bite size pieces. Importantly, she does all this in a supportive, non-judgmental way.”

I have made significant changes in my work environment by moving to a new role in the organization. Rosanne has helped me to look at my challenges at work from a different perspective. I’m also now able to consciously live in the moment and be “present” with the people I’m with. This change has definitely made me a better leader in my organization and in my whole life.”

I was not only able to carry out the plan, but to sustain the momentum of a significant shift in career direction. If you are looking to bring innovation and creativity to a career, a business, or a team, Rosanne would be an excellent resource to maximize the options and assist in a realistic action plan.”

“Your coaching has drastically altered how I approach work, and also made a huge difference in my general happiness and satisfaction in my professional life. This past year was a really difficult year for me, in terms of my career. Coming off of my second maternity leave, I questioned my career choices and started to contemplate next steps. Your sessions gave me that clarity, courage, and confidence to take control and change the things that I could, and focus on the parts that made me feel fulfilled in my current role. Work and work dynamics are still challenging but I am in a better place to understand how to move forward and more importantly, how to show up at my best.”
