My coaching engagement with Steve was instrumental in helping me to transition my career. As a practicing lawyer considering alternative career paths, I didn’t know where to start. Working with Steve opened up a world of possibilities so that I was able to effectively consider my options. Through coaching, I also gained the confidence to take advantage of those options and learned how to promote myself in a compelling way. I now find myself in a truly fulfilling position that aligns who I am and one that honors my values. I highly recommend Steve to anyone who is seeking a truly committed and engaging coach.
