      "My relationship with my coach truly helped me along the path to leadership growth. My meetings with Jude went from structured where we discussed requirements for meeting goals and plans for the future to more free flow discussions re: leadership and new business ventures. We will continue our relationship long into the future."

      Faculty, Texas Christian University

      I recently completed my MBA at TCU. A key part of the program was a leadership development process in which each class member was assigned a professional development coach. My relationship with Jude was one of the best and most important parts of the learning and leadership process for my MBA. She consistently prompted me to improve and I learned new frameworks for developing personal and professional relationships that will serve me well in the future. Not only did she provide me with accountability in completion of goals, but most importantly, she had a unique insight that empowered me to establish new goals. All it takes is one session with her to realize the advantages that she has to offer. I recommend Jude as a coach for leadership and professional development.

      Sr. Project Lead, Bell

      With Jude’s guidance I was able to pivot my perspective to see my strengths and evaluate areas for development, an immense value as an aspiring leader. Through conversations with her regarding assessment tools and team feedback, my perspective on leadership has significantly shifted from that of management to one of influence.

      "Jude was instrumental in assisting me with my decision to make an executive level career change, and to engineer and execute my plan. Judes style of listening, constructive feedback, and her ability to truly understand my personal situation as well as my career goals helped me tremendously in gaining clarity on my goals and objectives in my search. Judes coaching style is very professional, yet personal at the same time. I highly recommend working with Jude, she is a pleasure to work with."
