What is the problem you were trying to solve when you first started to look for a coach?
As a solo startup founder, I wanted someone to have authentic conversations with, bounce ideas around with, and get feedback. I needed someone who would honestly listen and understand my business idea. I also really wanted other perspectives so I could be more effective in my work.
What did your coach do to help you?
Cynthia took time to understand my business and personal values and because we had a formal coaching relationship in place: the quality of the conversations, dialogue, and decisions were far more meaningful. Cynthia always made sure we moved from the cerebral to setting appropriate time-based action steps and defining smart goals. We set real and aggressive goals to really improve the business.
What results did you experience working with your coach?
Weekly and monthly accountabilities were identified, accomplished and measured – invaluable in a start up! Working with Cynthia, I grew incredibly as a business person. I went from having an idea for a business with a handful of clients to a defined, viable, operating business with a dedicated office, team, and eager clients. In the 4 months I worked with Cynthia, my revenue doubled and I went from operating at local level to working with regional and now international companies.
