Testimonials

I had the opportunity to work with Doug as a business coach along with several of my colleagues for approximately 2 years. Initially we meet bi-weekly and then monthly. I found Doug to be very helpful in analyzing various situations with our team. His insights were refreshing, insightful and provided food for thought. I would characterize Doug as a tremendous ‘student of communication.' He is well read and often includes information from literature he has just read into the discussion. I recommend Doug as an executive / personal coach.

Doug will always stand out in my mind. He was assertive, respectful, smart and most of all was one of the best listeners I have met. He had a way of energizing and engaging the people around him. He always acted selflessly and was committed to improving leaders around him. I think his focus on inspiring people to always do the right thing every time was incredible. I am hoping our paths cross again so we can collaborate together. Doug has a smile that will warm the whole office.
