Coach with Wise – Application drives Value

“I initially didn’t understand or comprehend the need for an executive coach. But as the old adage goes, “you don’t know what you don’t know”. I was lucky to have Alan as an executive coach during a period of time where I needed to change my leadership style. I learned a lot from him on dealing with leadership challenges, building a high-performing team, and providing a vision to guide and unify the team.”

Jesse Bhondi, MBA, Senior Manager, Finance, Alberta Health, Government of Alberta – May 9, 2019

“Alan has been my coach for almost a year now, and in that time I’ve found him to be really effective support for my professional development. His strong theoretical and practical understanding of leadership development have helped me hone my understanding of what it means to be an effective leader and a whole person. I would strongly recommend Alan as a great coach, and look forward to working with him in the future!”

In very short time he helped our team, collectively and as individuals identify the core issues and then working closely with us, develop a realistic, achievable go forward plan. He was able to quickly build trust, learn our culture and then with incredible insight and sensitivity help us safely move forward. Alan is very kind in his approachwhile providing clear alternatives for the group. I am very pleased to recommend him unreservedly.”
