Our Success Stories

Kevin Williams

Jive Software

"Mary-Beth beat every expectation I had for an executive coach. Mary-Beth leveraged her vast knowledge and experience in executive team relationships, behavioral insight, psychology, and business overall, to understand my situation, challenge my assumptions, and resolve many blind-spots resulting in helping me attain my goals.


Specifically, Mary-Beth was essential in achieving my promotion to Vice President of Global Customer Support at Jive Software. My coaching sessions with her led me to understand and fix key behavioral patterns that had stalled my career progression and were preventing me from being more effective in my interactions with other executives and in my job overall."
