"Bruce was my direct manager several years ago, and I remembered how much I enjoyed his “coaching” approach to leadership. Bruce is a people developer first and foremost! When I learned that he had decided to formally dive into the realm of executive coaching, a couple of thoughts came to mind: 1) it’s about time; 2) I would love to continue to benefit from Bruce’s knowledge!
After working with Bruce as my coach for a short time, I had learned volumes about myself. I learned how some of my natural tendencies created obstacles for me and how to use some of my other natural tendencies to circumvent those obstacles. I had been struggling in keeping myself motivated and maintaining the proactive energy that I need to thrive. Working with Bruce opened a lot of doors for me, showed me tools that I could use to break out of the rut in which I had found myself, and even introduced doors to me that I did not even know existed previously. It was a journey of self-awareness and discovery, and Bruce was there as my guide. He did not do the work for me but always had a method in mind to keep probing and exploring. At the end of the conversation, there was an “ah hah” moment as a result of Bruce’s gift in “illuminating” the path for me to follow. This is what allowed me to arrive at the conclusion that I needed to get me moving forward again. Bruce is a world-class coach and I can say, without question, that I would not be where I am today without his leadership and guidance."
