Around May 2022, I started looking for a life coach because I was at a point in my life that was incredibly challenging. Firstly, my wife and I had run into some lifestyle and personality differences. She’s from Brazil, and on top of everything going on between us, she missed her family too much to stay in the US any longer and wasn’t sure if she could stay here long-term like we originally planned. We had just sold our house and were going to move to Brazil together in December 2022, but she couldn’t wait any longer and wanted some time alone to figure out what she wanted for her life. I had quit my job to pursue my business ventures full-time, and when she went to Brazil, I moved in with my lifelong friend. His place was smaller than ours, and having ADHD, I didn’t have enough time, focus, or motivation to deal with all of the belongings I had accrued and stored in my previous house. On top of all that, I was about a year behind on my business taxes, I was smoking a lot of weed (mixed with tobacco) and indulging in other self-destructive habits, I felt like I was growing apart from my friends, I wasn’t in the same physical shape that I had prided myself on before, I had just lost a significant revenue stream in one of my businesses, I was unable to exercise for two months due to an injury from a car accident, neither of my businesses were doing well enough to produce a liveable income, and I was diagnosed with depression for the first time in my life. In summary, I felt like I was at rock bottom. I was completely overwhelmed. I was surrounded by piles of boxes that I would painfully bump into every time I walked around the house, and I didn’t know what to do with them. I was sleeping in the bed I bought with my wife, and everywhere I went I saw things that reminded me of her and the uncertainty in our relationship. I felt like I had nobody I could talk to. I had a to-do list a mile long and no idea where to start. It felt like everything I had worked for was crumbling around me. When I found Derek on Noomii, his profile really stood out to me and I felt an instant connection, so I called him right away and left a message. Out of the 5 or so people I reached out to, he was the first to get back to me (I think around 9 or 10pm his time?). I called him back immediately and started bawling my eyes out on the phone. This person I had never met or talked to in my life had such an unbelievable amount of empathy, compassion, and understanding for me and my situation, and for the first time in a while, I felt like I had someone that could help me get through this chapter in my life. We started working together within a couple of days, and my life has consistently improved from that point on. The first couple of months were almost like therapy - not only did he help me work through all the emotional, troubling things in my life where nobody can really just tell you what to do, but he also helped me build a set of tools and habits that allowed me to start chipping away at the critical things I needed to get done in my life and business. Derek has continually motivated me, inspired me, challenged me, and ultimately helped me find the strength and confidence within myself to take on whatever life throws at me. He over-delivers on everything - our sessions were scheduled for an hour, and we would almost always go over. There were days when I was really going through it where we talked for 2+ hours during our weekly sessions at no additional charge - just significant time that was given to me by this man because he felt like I needed it. Occasionally he would call me on the phone to check-in with me, and we would wind up talking for an hour or more. Derek really puts his heart and soul into his work, and it 100% shows. He has been my biggest fan, my biggest supporter, and has never ceased to amaze me with his level of commitment. I’m writing this on January 26, 2023 (Derek has never once asked me for a review by the way, but as the owner of a marketing agency, I recommend he starts asking his clients ;) ), and I feel like my life has completely turned around. Derek has been there for me through thick and thin, and we’re still working together to this day. During our time together, I got in the best shape of my life; I moved to Brazil with my wife, repaired our relationship and things are better than ever; I feel closer to my friends and family; my mental health is doing great; both of my businesses are doing well and growing; I quit smoking weed, tobacco, and got my other bad habits under control; I’m beginning to develop my spiritual side again; and I feel like a completely different person compared to what I felt like before. I’m still working with Derek to this day, and now we focus on more mundane, boring stuff like growing my businesses, strengthening my relationships and spiritual connection, and striving for general excellence in life ;) Thank you so much Derek!! You’ve truly been a blessing to me, and I’m so glad I found you. To anyone on the fence about hiring a life coach - do it…and hire Derek. Best investment you will ever make in yourself.R.P.
Derek is a great person with a very friendly personality. He is very easy to talk to and he looks for connections. However it did not work for us as our needs for improving executive functioning was beyond providing motivation and tools with incentives and consequences. Plus Derek tends to talk a lot before coming to the point and for someone with ADD hard to stay focusedSPM
Derek has been extremely supportive, non-judgemental, effective and caring in our coaching relationship. He has helped me help myself, in my own way, being a careful listener for my problems and challenges and guiding me at every step. He has provided help and support beyond our official agreement. He is very knowledgeable about ADHD and addiction. My personal and professional life has improved greatly since meeting him about 7 months ago. Thank you Derek!Beltz
I came to a plateau in my personal development journey and I really needed a life coach who would really push me to produce more impactful results. Thank goodness I was paired with Derek! My initial goal was find better connections, possibly help me in finding an LGBTQIA community and maybe help me with my issues with sparking a connection with other gay men. But through my sessions with Derek, I realized that my answers and fulfillment didn't lie in the outside world. Derek helped me uncover myself and made me realize that what I REALLY needed the most was myself. Like a dedicated coach, Derek worked with me in championing for myself, forgiving myself, trusting myself, and really love myself AS much as I love others. This was so much more than any friend, boyfriend or husband can ever give me.Jeff Fontelera
About 6 months ago, prior to getting coaching from Derek, I thought I just needed a little accountability in my life. From the very first session, I discovered there was so much of my potential left on the table, not just from lack of accountability (which Derek provided above and beyond), but from lack of a crystal clear purpose. Derek's advanced coaching techniques taught me there are definitely levels of knowing your purpose, and it isn't until you drill deep down into your vision and purpose, that you are able to unlock that top gear of energy, focus, and calmness, knowing what things are worthy of your attention, and which things to stop stressing and wasting energy on. Derek's ongoing coaching has allowed me to discover what I truly want to get out of life, so that I can stop wasting my valuable limited energy on things that do not make me happy or get me closer to my goals. Derek is a true pro at taking your unique situation and getting you to optimize your thinking to set you on your path to living a happy and meaningful life. I would recommend Derek to anyone seeking clarity and better results out of their life.Jake Mast
I have not seen Derek Steater, but he left a lovely message on my voice mail. I am in Vancouver BC and have decided to try and find someone local. CrystalCrystal Deshaies
Derek is a great coach and I highly recommend. He never ceases to present creative solutions to remind you of the skills you didn't know you already have. Dereks's coaching will leave you with perpetual tools you can rely on to navigate challenges with confidence. He is very supportive, consistent, and authentically cares about his clients. That is my experience.Jason
I have been working with Derek for four months and meet with him weekly for roughly one hour long sessions through a Whatsapp video conference. I am a physician, specifically I am a neurotology fellow nearing the end of my formal training and am transitioning to independent practice. My motivations for seeking a coach were multiple. I wanted help in finding ways to balance and meet my goals professionally (increase my research productivity while being in training and establishing a practice) and personally (Improving communication in my marriage, staying physically active). I think most medical professionals find some struggle in balancing work and life. There never seems to be enough time/energy/motivation to do everything you need to do or want to do. Derek gave me the foundational skills in how to think about triaging and allocate my time and resources. He also helped me better attain my goals by teaching me how to make them accountable and actionable. However, by working with Derek over the last few months, he has given me more than what I thought I wanted from a coaching partnership. Dereks approach is to key into who you are as a person- what your strengths, values and motivations are, and how to use those attributes to achieve your goals. He did not change who I am, but he helped me understand who that person was and who I aspired to be so my actions are sure to be aligned with that person. Derek uses fun and an openness to new experiences in his approach to coaching. That has helped me to do the same in my own life. Importantly, Derek has been very flexible in working with my schedule when our usual meeting time gets altered due to surgical days running late or when emergencies come up. I highly recommend Derek as a life coach. Like a coach for an athlete or other high performance profession, Derek cant do the work for you. However, if you are motivated to improve some aspect of your life, Derek will help you find your purpose and provide the framework for you to succeed.Alvin
I have worked with Derek in a personal / business capacity for several months and he has been fantastic. He is an out-of-the-box thinker, an excellent listener and has an uncanny ability to get right to the "heart of the matter" as it pertains to growing yourself, your business and your life. I give my highest recommendation to Derek and you will gain more from an hour with him than several months with other consultants. 5 stars!Phil W., iOS Developer (Apps for iPads & iPhones) @ Touchopia, Salt Lake City, Utah
“I met Derek when he was the trainer for an intense 2-day Crucial Conversations workshop I attended this spring. We exchanged e-mails before the workshop and he was enthusiastic and supportive before we ever met in person. His workshop was WOW! Derek knows the material inside and out. He encouraged the participants to share and created a safe environment through his candor and openness. He reinforced the lessons by giving us opportunities to practice our skills. Derek has provided added value to me through additional one-on-one coaching. He has helped me apply Crucial Conversations principals to navigate some difficult personal issues. Derek's warmth and magnetism and his true caring, combined with excellent presentation skills and in-depth knowledge of his subject matter, make him a fantastic trainer and coach.”Jan Coleman, Corporate Support, Television Station
“I know the "real deal" when I see it. Derek Sleater Cook is the real deal! As the author of The Accountability Experience, I have the opportunity to watch trainers of the material in action. Derek is by far the most authentic, dynamic provider of the material I have seen to date. He has enthusiastically internalized the concepts, speaks from a congruent and compelling personal truth, suspends judgment so participants can explore their own thoughts and actions in a safe environment, and remains teachable at every turn. Derek's combination of platform speaking skills, one-to-one coaching, and small group facilitation ability is rare. He is organized, prepared and realistic about what can be accomplished with the time and resources provided. Derek walks his vision with every fiber of his being and it is clear it attracts others to him that nourish and support his desired goals in life.”Linda Galindo , Author and Keynote, The 85% Solution How Personal Accountability Guarantees Success. No Nonsense. No Excuses (business partner)
“Derek is a very passionate, enthusiastic and gifted life coach. His intuition and natural talent for being an agent of change are uncanny.

I highly recommend Derek for anyone who is seeking out coaching, he is a powerful person and partner to work with in any capacity.”Shereen Faltas , Owner & Life Coach, LOL Life Coach (business partner)
“Derek has a gift of being able to reach people from all walks of life. He is a genuine, compassionate, and insightful person. He has a way of teaching great life lessons in every situation. I am a better person because I know him.”L. Jones, Executive Assistant to C.O.O. and C.I.O., Administrative Program Coordinator, Admin. Assistant
If you are wondering if Derek is the Coach for you- take the leap with him and you won't be sorry! Derek has a joy for life that is infectious. He is insightful, intuitive, empathetic and "walk's the talk". He is incredibly easy to talk to because of his warm, accepting, non-judgmental nature. Derek has incredible insight and his questions will challenge you to open your awareness and stop self sabotaging your goals.Kimber N. - Sales Manager, Mother, Entrepreneur
