    As a young woman in corporate America, I constantly found myself feeling as though I didn’t deserve a seat at the table. When I joined the CWC program, I had recently been promoted. I was stressed out and working crazy hours trying to learn my new function and still be a good mom to my growing family. My coach helped me figure things out quickly and easily so I could re-frame my thinking and become a better leader. She gave me the tools so no matter what obstacles I face, I am the solution.

    I’ve already recommended several colleagues to CWC. I thoroughly enjoyed the coach’s energy, directness, and sound advice. Her experience in the financial services industry was hugely helpful to me. The program was straightforward, and it was the discipline, feedback, and dialogue that I benefited from the most. We put together a solid short-term plan, and one I can dust off in the future to carry me forward. I thoroughly enjoyed working with my coach.  Her discipline and processes helped to keep me focused and on track.  Her knowledge of the industry and how things work was a big plus.  But it is her style, demeanor, and energy that really made the difference and made me look forward to our conversations.  Truly a pleasure to work with!
