“As a first time general manager of a country business unit within a successful global company, I was experiencing challenges across a range of facets of the company. It felt like I was working longer hours and getting lower results. Andrew helped me to map out priorities, identify strategies and options, and was a sounding board that enabled me to build my confidence over time. The key element that makes Andrew special is that he has helped me to do this job better. He has not tried to “do” my job. We set goals and I have achieved most of them … and those that remain are ones that I can see what I need to adjust in order to reach them.
Interestingly, some of the most positive feedback about my engagement of Andrew as my business coach came from my staff. They felt that I was more open to hearing them. I learned how to delegate more effectively. They also felt Andrew’s presentation leadership at a Company conference was valuable and insightful… and I am working with them to bring the concepts which Andrew presented into our culture and my management (leadership) style.”
