Coaching takes the set of mental models you are using to make decisions and unpacks them. It makes the unconscious conscious so that you can decide what outcomes you would like.

I really enjoy the coaching experiences. The coaching sessions are like lighthouses for me in the voyage in the darkness. As a new leader, I didn't feel confident about my own decisions. Is this the right thing to do? I didn't have the experience to answer that. After a few months of coaching, I've gained much more confidence in the decisions that I make.

I often entered the meeting with problems that I didn't know how to solve, decisions that I was not sure about, or new initiatives that I was still trying to figure out. For every challenge I faced on a day-to-day basis, Andre always has great insight to inspire me. And I always exited the meeting with a great amount of clarity on what I should do next.

Andre is a very wise coach to work with. I learned so much after every single session with him. I highly recommend anyone who aspires to be a skillful leader to work with PeopleStorming. It will open a door for your fast growth in the area of leadership.

After my first conversation with Andre it became quickly clear that he knew what he was talking about and his help would be well worth the investment.

Working with my PeopleStorming coach has been fantastic. He's an open listener. He provides good feedback that's both strategic and tactical.

The top three benefits of working with Andre have been: better managing my career expectations, learning to adapt to change and knowing how to manage priorities in a stressful work environment.

If you're looking to figure out the best ways to manage your career I would definitely talk to PeopleStorming.

My time with Andre was so incredibly valuable, it's hard to summarize in just a few sentences. With each session, I could see myself improving more and more in my career development and growth. From working through tough managing questions and situations, to workshopping public speaking and presentations, each lesson was tactically and philosophically helpful in my role as an executive. I nailed down some data graphs that I'd been struggling with for years, enhanced my public speaking skills, learned how to navigate tough work relationships, and manage my team better. I cannot stress how much I grew from just six short weeks working with Andre. My colleagues have noticed changes and my boss has been giving me rave reviews on various deliverables since meeting with Andre.

I engaged PeopleStorming to help me develop better executive presence and to expand my influence across an organization undergoing transformation. I was looking for someone who really understood technology, product, innovation, and leadership.

Having Andre as my coach has been a huge help in making me an effective leader. He really helped me identify my strengths to double down on and my blind spots to develop. My favorite part about our sessions is his ability to quickly grasp the root of the problem and offer concrete action plans for immediate effect and frameworks for long-term development.

I have been able to immediately apply the tips and tools he provides and have observed the increased impact I have been making at work. His coaching has really been a game changer for me. I have already recommended Andre to my friends and if you are looking to take your leadership to the next level, I encourage you to have a session with Andre.
