Doug,
You possesses a rare combination of business expertise and a highly developed sensitivity to the needs of the people you coach. Your holistic approach provides a safe environment to process one’s fears, while receiving the tools and guidance to move toward the realization of one’s goals. Compassion, wisdom and nobility of spirit characterize this rare individual, whose contribution to the lives of others is immeasurable. As an independent consultant, doubt and fear are frequent visitors. You have challenged me to value my talents and the expertise I deliver to my clients. Since I began working with you, my consulting business has increased by 100%. In the immortal words of James Bond: “Nobody does it better.” —A.M., President

Doug,
I’ll be really honest with you.  I was impressed with you during our short hour here in Paso Robles.  I can tell you take pride in your coaching and I can see myself under your wing.   Sincerely, D. T., Realtor-Partner

Merry Christmas Doug, my most awesome Coach and Friend,
I cannot say Thank you enough times …nor are there any words to express my personal and most sincere gratitude for all that you have done to coach me this year.  You are my HERO!
 
Your presence at our executive retreat was the best thing ever and our team is revving up for an awesome year and so appreciated you, your knowledge, wisdom and personal time given on that day.  My admiration for you has grown so much  after hearing all the wonderful things that you have done in your career and how you have helped change and grow so many different companies.  I am truly impressed!  Without you, this year wouldn’t have been nearly as successful. —Yours Sincerely grateful, M.J., CEO

Hi Doug,
Thank you so very much  making me face what I have to do. – The next day I arranged with my mentor weekly meetings to practice basic scripts where so I can be more effective on sales calls.  So, actually, with your guidance, after a long time I’m finally back on track.  Your web site insights were right on.  I was able to pass on your advice to the web designers.  So many good things are happening.  It’s always easier to deliver 100% when I’ve got money coming in. —Thanks so much, T.C., Self-employed

Hey Doug,
Our executive is doing just GREAT! I couldn’t be more pleased with their progress and with your coaching support.  Thank you for all you’re doing to help the growth of our business. — M. B., Owner

Doug,
Taking over a failing market center, you helped lead me into success this year.  For several months and I was empowered, tested and pushed to the limit to achieve things I thought I couldn’t do.  I’ll never forget what you said:
 “I will do whatever I can and guide you however you need to help you reach your goals this year because I know that if we don’t do this, we won’t see you back in the coaching program again.  It is my duty to see you through this financial storm so you can get back on the program to reach higher.  I am with you all the way.”  WOW!  What a profound message to me.  My hat will always be off to you for what you’ve done for me and our business. – M.J. P., CEO.

Doug,
I wanted to thank you as well for all the effort you have put into helping me be successful.   I am grateful for all of the advice.   My business environment is less than ideal, but, with your coaching,  I know I can make things work. —  Regards, J. S., Franchise Director

Doug,
You are so wonderfulJ!  I was going to do the same thing for my team so now I can use some of your stuff and don’t have to re-create the wheel.  I look forward to re-connecting with you every week.  You made everything seem so much more tangible and doable. — Blessings, S. McV, CEO

Doug,
What a sage! I’m all about staying in curiosity thanks to the “tennis racquet” you mentioned during one of our earlier coaching calls.  Now, you’ve one-upped it with some great specific scripts. I look forward to sharing this with my role play partner. No doubt this technique and practice will hone my skills! — C. J., Team Leader & Owner

*****

Doug,
As always, with these questions, you’ve provided another great platform from which to view my growing business.  The questions, for me, get to the heart of the goals that I have … and keep me centered on why I am in business and how I want to be perceived in my business.  I often find myself listening to client as they speak, wondering who they are and whether we would be a good fit, but, until now, I didn’t have a “roadmap,” and I couldn’t take my questions that far.  Now I can.   I suggest sharing with others.    I’m even thinking of creating a mastermind group, something I have ALWAYS wanted to do. —D. N. Blass, Team Owner & Entrepreneur

*****

Doug,
I don’t know how long this new “me” is going to last, but I do know one serious truth:  If I know what to do and don’t do it, that is true failure.  And I’m just not gonna go down that path ever again.  Your motivation is very important to me. — K. S., CEO

Doug,
Who could have predicted that when I told you 2 years ago in our initial conversation that I had big questions about coaching, you would become the same mentor whose counsel and respect I so value today.   I credit your wisdom in helping me achieve all I have gained as a successful business owner and as a leader. —  D. Nelson

Dear Doug, 
Thank you for the terrific coaching I received from you last week. I integrated your recommendations into my letter to the CEO so that she would more clearly understand what I provide. I was willing to walk away from this project if the client did not recognize the value I bring. It was a scary feeling, but I knew I had to cross this chasm. Thank you for giving me the courage to honor myself and the value I bring. — A.O., Director

Doug,
I am working on my “brand” and with your assistance and coaching as to direction, I am committed to getting there.  There is no alternative. I am so glad I met you in Atlanta. —Kathy P., Self-employed

Dear Doug:
When the student is ready, the teacher appears! I am sick and tired of doing things the same way and expecting different results. I think that is called insanity.  Having someone hold me accountable makes perfect sense and I am eager to begin. You need never apologize for making me face the truth.  That is a loving gift that I gratefully receive. Be as tough as you deem appropriate, in order to keep me on track. I am determined to super-charge the laws of creation with effective action steps. —A. Osborne, Business Owner & Strategic Director

 *****

Doug,
Attached is my list of action items and desires. It is a very constructive exercise, which not only makes me more keenly aware of potential opportunities, but is holding me accountable for designated follow-up. With your help, this will change how I perceive myself as a businessperson.—Anne M., Self-employed
