Insights

No, your 360 feedback report should not become public knowledge. In most cases unless one has also undergone a 360 assessment they'll most likely misinterpret the feedback. I coach my clients to not share their full feedback report. After our 1-on-1 debrief I ask that they

Testimonials

Dave, I wanted to remind you that I have achieved my first anniversary with the new company that I consulted with in their pre-IPO stage. It is through your help and my determination that I am succeeding as a member of this new management team. The work that we have done together over the past few years has given me the insight and tools to transition from management level employee through my own consulting practice and on to greater success with my present employer. I believe that your background and skills uniquely qualify you to be a successful business coach. Thank you for helping me to succeed in playing the game of business at this level!

Bill Gartner, VP Director of East Coast Operations BioMed Realty Trust, Inc.

Dave is a keen listener and has excellent insight into business organizations, interpersonal relations, and the fine art of management. His probing questions and wise words of advice helped me adapt much more smoothly than I had predicted. I highly recommend Dave for executive coaching services.

Daniel Z. Sands, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer and VP Clinical Strategies Zix Corporation

I want to thank you for your dedication and your professionalism during our coaching sessions. I know that without your counseling I never would have been so bold as to ask for this promotion—or if I had it would have seemed like an ultimatum rather than a request from an excited employee. The knowledge and support you have given me have led to many great accomplishments in my life and I believe that I have truly become my own boss. Thank you again for your dedication and support.

Chris Favreau, Product Development Director Quabaug Corporation

Our Company has been using Game On for almost 2 years now and I have found that the skilled and engaging coaching helps me directly and positively manage my Company and my personal life. Game On has consistently provided me with the motivation and tools necessary for me to accomplish significant personal and professional growth.

Michael D. Casper, President/CEO UltraSource, Inc.

When we started working together I was in an embarrassing ranking of #122 out of #132 vice presidents – the bottom 8%. The latest scorecard that came out ranked me #34 – the top 25% and based on the numbers this quarter, there is a very reasonable chance I am going to move up by at least 5 – 10 spots for the next quarterly scorecard. So I wanted to thank you for your contribution to the cause. I appreciate the work we do together, your leadership…and the best part is that there are concrete results to back it up.

Maria Dell'Ovo, Field Vice President American Express Financial Advisors
