Tim has this amazing ability to question you into a space to where you just get it. You know the answer and you think, gosh why does it take him asking me these questions to get me there? But sometimes it very hard to turn the mirror around on yourself. Tim does that in a very intelligent and intuitive way.

I never would have imagined how much Tim’s coaching would help me develop professionally. I started soaring once I began my coaching sessions with him. I know the coaching Tim provided has given me the aptitude to grow and develop, creating the possibility for me to aim to higher goals in my career.

Tim’s coaching has helped me navigate from being a high performing contributor to a team leader. I have realized the importance of living each day focusing on commitment and putting effort and thought into how I treat myself and others.  My quality of life – both at work and away from the office – has never been better.
