“All the changes we worked through landed smoothly and people are comfortable with the new structure. I also shared the technology vision and strategy in the company meeting – people love it! We have mobilized our team towards our goals and making solid progress towards them already. Now the team is more strongly integrated – better quarterly planning, better communication with the rest of company, new operation reviews etc.
All this wouldn’t have happened without your help. You have done a phenomenal job working with me and my team. You have played a critical role helping me integrate the teams after the acquisition. So far, we have had limited attrition and the team is working together smoothly! Thanks again!”

“My coaching engagement with Sherry gave me the much-needed opportunity to invest in my growth as a leader, both in my current role and preparing for future executive leadership roles. I began with an intent to transition to a different role as quickly as possible due to a difficult working environment, and ended with a very different outlook on how my bias for action, E2E drive and focus on my customers were what I needed to drive my own, my team’s and ultimately my employer’s success in my current role. With Sherry’s expertise and guidance my emotional growth was significant and has allowed me to move from being viewed primarily as a strong tactical leader to a strategic leader, positioned well to drive change and growth for a Fortune 50 company in a highly competitive industry.”

Sherry did very in-depth conversations with all direct parties involved with our retreat. She even went further to meet with parties not directly involved in the retreat, but important to her to have the “big picture.” From these meetings she was able to have a better understanding of the issues and the different perspectives. Her background research to me was very impressive. She went above and beyond my expectations to be prepared for this difficult agenda retreat.”

I worked with Sherry during a particularly stressful time in my career. She used tools and insight to help me get in touch with my core values, find what gives me energy and examine my blind spots. She challenged me when I needed it, and encouraged me to go after my goals.”
I’m grateful to have such a powerful and inspirational woman mentor.”
I really appreciated working with Sherry. She helped me grow as a leader in addition to providing me several pragmatic fundamentals to sort through the chaos of life and career change. She was adaptable with the 360 process which provided me with the most meaningful and personalized feedback. I also appreciated her flexibility in re-organizing our conversations to focus on immediate needs and concerns during a challenging time. Her style worked well for me and I deepened my comprehension meaningfully from her ability to recognize patterns in my thinking and communications, concisely frame these into relevant insights, and articulate categories of action for follow-up and decision making.”
