Iva Wilson coached me for 12 sessions during September – October 2013. She helped me design goals around my desired outcomes and areas of concern – both in the professional and personal spheres. I am pleased to report that all the goals set for the coaching period were achieved. Additionally, through our coaching conversations, I achieved greater clarity around a number of issues. Her powerful questions led me to shift my thinking over some long held underlying beliefs.
Iva is an empathic listener and very patient as a coach. Both qualities lend to her success as a coach. As coach and client, we were located thousands of miles apart, with nine hours of time difference between our countries. This fact did not negatively impact the effectiveness of Iva's coaching. Due to her attentiveness, she grasped the essence of my situation very quickly – much to my surprise. She also showed a keen interest in understanding what was going on in my country, to assimilate the context I was coming from.
I have learned a great deal from my interactions with Iva. She is a great coach and I recommend her to any prospective coaching clients who want to move forward and get greater clarity in their situations, dilemmas and overall thinking.
