Several years ago, during a transition from being a long-time business owner to working for the CEO of a private company in an executive position, Ivy provided me with advice and guidance during a period when I was finding it difficult to navigate my new surroundings. Ivy has years of valuable experience in the corporate world which I had not worked in since the beginning of my career. Things have changed and it’s important to understand the current environment in terms of negotiating your initial job description and compensation package to the day to day inner workings of the corporate culture of the company. I would highly recommend Ivy to anyone seeking to change positions, maintain and or elevate their position or negotiating an exit strategy. She’s simply fantastic to work with and provided me with invaluable advice during a difficult time.
I wanted to bring new meaning and purpose to my life, while balancing the demands of my work and personal life. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do. Ivy helped me find my purpose, and develop and execute a plan to get there. With her coaching, I regained my convenience and willingness to take a risk. The result was the launch of a new, successful business venture.
Ivy has experience in a variety of personal and professional situations allowing her to understand high level corporate environments, with all the complexities. I used Ivy as a sounding board, a thinking partner, and an independent third-party who helped me stay focused on the most critical business objectives. Receiving individual feedback and interacting with Ivy helped expose my blind spots, enabling me to achieve greater levels of financial success.
I worked with Ivy when she was in an executive leadership capacity with multiple health plans. I appreciated her ability to give insight to those she managed and to offer a sense of vision and passion. I learned a great deal from her, and I found that she was open to hearing and receiving input from others. I recommend her as an executive coach based upon her ability to help others and my personal experience working with her.
As a business owner I am great at fulfillment, and not so great at asking for payment. Ivy changed that! She really helped me gain the confidence to ask for what I need. Her method of exploration makes her a great fit for just about any situation. My business has become more profitable thanks to her coaching.
