Ben is thoughtful, compassionate and fun. He has a full box of consulting tools to share with clients and pushes us toward creative solutions that achieve results.Kathi, Corporate Training & Development Manager
I highly recommend Ben and I can think of no one I would rather have as a mentor and coach.Walter, Small Business Owner
My highest core values are Trust and Respect. I selected Ben as my Coach primarily for his STRONG personal and professional core values. I trusted Ben’s confidentiality commitment and his respect of my privacy when divulging areas of my professional life that needed clarity. Ben is a fantastic listener and he is highly effective at capturing big ideas. He quickly designed action plans for me that have paved the way for my achieving professional goals and experiencing continual success. Ben’s calming and assuring demeanor is a huge bonus for positive client and coaching relationships.Luis, Government Agency Executive Director
Ben has the unique ability to truly guide you to self-awareness and self-management. It never feels like he is telling you anything. Rather, you feel like he is a guide on your own journey. Coaching at our level and age is only effective when the one coached internalizes both the need for growth and the methods themselves. I am a better man and leader because of his help.Joseph, Physician Leader in Public Health System
