“Claire is a remarkable executive leadership coach and a truly wonderful human being. I worked with Claire while transitioning my career within the single family office area. She challenged me to identify my strengths and weaknesses and to establish goals and milestones. She intuitively knew that I needed to be more introspective to determine what I really wanted to do professionally so that I could attain the goals that made sense for me. She spent many hours with me breaking down the barriers I had established around my perceived career path. She opened my eyes to the market for my talents and helped me establish an action plan to get where I wanted and needed to be. I could not be more grateful to Claire for her hard work, imagination and honest encouragement. Please feel free to contact me directly for more information about Claire.”

” I had never met Claire before I reached out to her to learn more about her coaching/consulting practice. I work for a commercial real estate investment company and I had just been given responsibility for raising private capital for our newest fund. During my initial research and discovery process, I found Claire. She had an interesting background that corresponded with what I was working on professionally and, after meeting with her, I determined that she’d be a great coach in terms of selling into the high-end private client market, understanding how to position our offering and networking with the right intermediaries. As a coach, Claire helped me to get focused, identify my strengths in my new role and then to implement my fund raising strategy. Through her wisdom and empathy, Claire expanded my outlook and enabled me to grow professionally. The end result was that within six months of starting our work together, I had raised the amount of capital expected and our fund closed as scheduled. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Claire and would highly recommend her as a coach.”

Gary Shunk, Principal, Family Wealth Dynamics

 

“I’ve known Claire since our days together as colleagues at FOX, but I came to have a much greater appreciation for her skills and talents when I hired her to be my Executive Coach during 2012. While she helped me in numerous ways, her ability to get me to focus, think ahead, and know what is most important for priorities were her most valuable traits. I would highly recommend you consider Claire for your leadership needs. We are bringing her back in 2013 for work with our team.”

Thomas R Livergood, CEO, Family Wealth Alliance LLC
