CEO, Washington DC - Confidential Company
Customer | 9/1/2016
I'm in the organizational development business; I help clients with their organizational development needs; I help match trainers with trainees and coaches with coachees. It's what I do for a living. So I knew--when I was feeling like I was in over my head and like I was driving everyone around me crazy--I knew what my first step should be.
My first step was to find an executive coach for myself, for the first time ever. I decided that I needed someone who worked far away from me and wouldn't run in my "circles." I needed one who was up for a challenge and who had a sense of humor. I needed one who had experience working with CEOs, who had run a business himself, who would push me without being condescending, and who would listen without acting like they'd heard it all before.
I fond Molto Crescendo, and more importantly, I found Thom Qafzezi. He not only met all of those criteria, but then he proceeded to help me in ways I didn't imagine possible. He has an expert's sense of when to push, when to give, and when to laugh. And yes, I enjoyed my coaching sessions, but more importantly, in between our sessions, I changed the way I interacted with people; I made decisions that had baffled me for a year; I learned not to take myself so seriously; and I learned how to keep growing and changing, even after our sessions ended. I'd highly recommend Thom and Molto Crescendo, but not so much so that he won't be available to me when I need him!
