“I don’t find pep talks to be particularly motivating; what I need is an actionable plan to move forward, and that’s exactly what I got from Jill. I need the opportunity to talk through difficult situations with a thought partner who can ask questions that make me think about challenges in new ways, provide suggestions based on my existing strengths, and help me to grow in areas that are not areas of strength for me. There were times when I should show up to our sessions feeling somewhat dejected and frustrated with how things were going at the moment, but I invariably left our sessions feeling energized, empowered, and clear about my next steps. I wholeheartedly recommend Jill Gibson as an executive coach!”
