Testimonials

Within the first month of working with Evan, I was able to achieve measurable, meaningful results.

Specifically the awareness created by our conversations and his proven process resulted in taking responsibility for my priorities, my attitude and my emotional state. Just realizing what influences my decisions has helped improve them in the office, on the road and at home with family.

The most stunning evolution as I look back at the process is how several areas of frustration that dominated my thoughts a year ago have totally evaporated.

Far from being “fluffy” managerial one-liners or some “rah, rah” feel good motivation that fades quickly, Evan and I were able to integrate the coaching relationship directly into my business strategy, performance metrics and direct reports’ development plans.

Evan’s methodology is now central to how my team sets, achieves and reflects on goals. The results have been amazing — largest orders ever for the company, entirely new sources of revenue, increased resources allocated to our team, increased engagement by our customers. And it actually feels effortless, because it is fun.

Evan has been a great guide to me. At a time when I was at a crossroads professionally, I got connected to him through a common friend of ours and thereafter there was no looking back. Be it in dealing with under-performing subordinates or dealing with difficult customers, he taught me to look at situations from completely new perspectives. As a coach, he showed me the value of questioning techniques and the value of introspection.

His genial demeanour,  patient listening, and ability to make himself stand by me for support is what always gave me the courage to talk to and ask questions to him without any inhibition or discomfort. A discussion with him at any time made me feel rejuvenated and emerge from darkness to a point where I could see the end of the tunnel. What I liked the most about him is that he never undermined my apprehensions, always acknowledged my fear and yet made me see solutions to them through discussions with him.

Interacting with him is always fun, enjoyable, and fruitful.

I honestly thought I was in a pretty good place as a business leader – successful on the surface, all the best ingredients for happiness. Through thoughtful conversations, the right questions and meaningful coaching, Evan has helped me understand the obstacles I’m putting in front of myself – obstacles which are preventing me from living an abundant life. His style is non-judgmental but exact, warm but determined. Every session with Evan has helped me feel more self-aware and more deliberate in my actions in the world – he challenges me to think bigger, broader. Don’t be fooled – as in the traditional sense of “coach,” Evan doesn’t do the work for you, but instead helps you walk to the beginning of the staircase, take the first step and then is there with you as you climb. The experience has been a freeing if you will, an awakening – this from a woman who thought she was pretty darn awake already. My highest recommendation goes to Evan. Talk to him.

Throughout my experiences with Evan, I marveled at his knowledge and abilities. I told him several times no previous professional development experience rivaled the life-changing impact of our time together. The study of “Energy Leadership” itself was a revealing journey with terrific relevance to my daily work.

I truly see the world through a different lens, and this is allowing me to engage life and the persons I have in my personal and work lives ever more successfully.

You are a brilliant coach. Looking forward to our future work.

Mark – Senior Vice President, Chicago

As a very hard driving over achieving perfectionist I had hit a plateau both personally and professionally. I came across Evan by accident and my world has never been the same. Evan introduced me to new concepts and new ways of thinking. He’s helped guide me into areas of communication and self-growth I had never realized were there. My plateau was broken! By applying the techniques from our discussions into my life I began to feel more grounded personally while reducing my stress and improving my relationships with those around me. I would highly recommend Evan without hesitation.

When Evan and I first discussed the possibility of having him coach me, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect since I’d never been coached. My articulated needs were to eliminate blocks that were keeping me from achieving my goals. I trusted my instincts and began relying on Evan for his coaching skills.

While I don’t consider myself a religious person, I do have a deep sense of spirituality. Working with Evan enabled me to tap into my spirit to find ways to overcome certain blocks. By listening and through gentle direction, Evan helped me to dig deeper so that I could unlock what was holding me back. In all of my sessions with him, I felt an intense sense of caring and concern flowing from Evan and an overwhelming sense that his work was Spirit-driven. Sessions were freeing and exhilarating and actually helped me to take giant leaps in personal growth. I felt truly blessed by my interactions with Evan and strongly encourage others dealing with blocks to turn to him for the kind of assistance he gave me.

Working with Evan over the past year has brought me out of a personal black hole. My life while full of purpose, was passing me by only to be replaced with doubt, fear and poor choices. Through our work together, I was able to identify the negative energy that was a source of my misgivings and increase my awareness of the choices I was making. Evan’s focus on what my success looks like has helped me gain the confidence I need to be triumphant in all aspects of my life. I look forward to each and every interaction I have with Evan!

Evan has been a colleague and a personal friend for over 8 years.  When thinking about him, the top personality traits that come to my mind are:

  • Clarity in communication
  • Focus on people development
  • Strategic thinker
  • Positive energy

I saw Evan at a retirement banquet a few years when he got up and commenced the banquet.  As he was presenting to the audience, I just could not overlook his clarity of thought & communication.   It seemed as though that each of the word(s) were woven together to convey the meaning clearly.

As our working relationship progressed on, I had a chance to work with him during multiple occasions where the leadership of the organization was brought together for discussions.  Throughout the discussions, it was very evident that Evan’s passion was really about developing people, and helping them reach beyond the set expectations.

Later as we went our separate ways, I have stayed in touch with Evan.  He is always willing to engage in leadership dialogue and ready to “think through” the solution as opposed to just “hand out” the solution.  Discussions with Evan are always full of positive energy, and in sync with the big picture.

He is an absolute delight to work with as a colleague, coach & friend!

I use what Evan taught me every day to both understand where conflict is really coming from and how to defuse it. I also understand what my hot buttons are and I’m learning to short circuit those responses so I don’t create more conflict and solve it instead. It’s all a work in progress but his conflict training has paid big, big dividends.
