“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.”

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.”

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.”

Rosanne also provided each of us tools that will allow us to grow and develop in the important areas we identified, as well as track our progress. Rosanne provided a calming effect in the room which made the group feel at ease to work together and participate. Weeks after the workshop, our group is continuing to use the tools Rosanne provided and to “coach” each other on a regular basis, so we continue to benefit from the workshop.

Rosanne provided a space/atmosphere that allowed me to feel open.  I value the time I spent working with Rosanne and the gift of insight she gave me.”
