Testimonials

Sabrina, Business Owner, Health Services

"Ruth has been an invaluable resource to me as I built a new team, established new leaders, policies and processes, and grew my business. I was starting from a place of not knowing what step one was, while knowing I had 100+ steps to complete. She has a great process around brainstorming, planning, execution and reflection that enabled us to identify a plan (specifically, a waterfall of meetings involving different levels of my organization), carry out those meetings, and regroup in between the meetings to digest new information and course correct as needed. We are over a year into our engagement and the "new leaders" are no longer "new", two of them are no longer with the team (which has been great for the overall health of the company), and my organization is highly engaged with revenues consistently 20+% higher year over year. I appreciate her real world corporate experience at all levels, her great education in the coaching world, and her continued education around emotional intelligence and team building. I fully endorse Ruth and encourage you to reach out to her if you are looking for insightful coaching for yourself and/or your team."

Jen, Managing Director, Executive Search Firm

"I have worked with Ruth in an executive coaching capacity for a while, and I HIGHLY recommend her.  Ruth is not just a coach who is "wise" and has a strong opinion, Ruth has decades of professional, executive experience, successfully advancing her career with a Fortune 50 company.  Ruth is an honest, direct communicator, who will help you discover the best path for yourself, but also help you drive yourself to reach the best outcome.  And if you want someone who will also make you laugh hysterically and have a blast while doing this, Ruth is the one who can do that too!"

Kelly, Managing Director, Global Brokerage Firm

"Ruth has a knack for taking a disparate group of contributors and creating an inclusive work environment where those individual efforts come together seamlessly.  Her leadership coaching ensures teamwork even in challenging business environments, which allows for delivery of innovation on schedule and ready for implementation."

Kim, Senior Vice President, Global Insurance Firm

"I worked with Ruth in the corporate world for several years and witnessed first hand how her coaching and mentoring skills would lead individuals and teams to successfully take on challenges that seemed insurmountable. She has an incredible sense of humor and ability to develop high-functioning teams. I recommend Ruth to help unlock your potential - she is amazing!"
