It comes down to what you want to get out of working with an experienced executive coach. Are you interested in growing professionally and in your current position or are you interested in working with a coach so you can pursue something different?

If you choose a coach who had not been an executive then you are not going to get the same level of experience guiding you to your end result. If you ... Read more


I hope Stuart and Janet were effusive in their thanks. What a Performance. You were direct, diplomatic and comprehensive in your analysis and suggestions. You're an impressive and generous man, Mitch. That was one of the best off-the-cuff consultations I've ever seen.

Dave Greeley, Desire Creation Marketing Expert and Consultant

Mitch Russo created a company and a software category, built the business to profitability without outside funding, and sold it successfully to a large software company. I watched him closely 1991-94 as he led his team, earned their loyalty, managed risk and tradeoffs, and grew as a person.

Jim Johnston, President Johnston Co.

As a founder and CEO of Timeslips, Mr. Russo built a leading software company that quickly became the standard by which all Time and Billing applications would be judged. I worked daily with him and was fortunate to learn many skill that I use today. His passion and leadership are instrumental influences to the success of any business of which he associates.

Mike Guillory, WW Marketing Communications Manager Texas Instruments

Mitch knows the software industry very well. He has not only built great companies and sold them for himself; he does it for other entrepreneurs as well. Mitch has elevated our management and marketing practices to the next level.

Jeff Peoples, CEO Window Book Inc.

Mitch did a stellar job working with me via Assist Ventures in an attempt to sell my first company to Swets & Zeitlinger, a billion dollar Amsterdam based firm. Mitch flew with me to Amsterdam and gave it everything he could to make it happen. I'll always appreciate the help he provided at a much needed time. Mitch is a great asset for any entrepreneur to associate with.

Dan Engel, CEO Morpheus Software

It's hard to imagine a CEO who couldn't benefit from Mitch Russo's broad experience and penetrating insight. Even when I was certain I had the optimal plan, and all my bases covered, Mitch would invariably uncover yet another angle or approach. Moreover, at times he has identified flaws in my most basic assumptions which compelled me to rethink an entire project. And thank goodness for that! With his help and guidance, I have become a much more effective and confident CEO. I can honestly say that I value Mitch Russo's advice more highly than anyone else I know. To say his coaching is invaluable would be an understatement. For me, it's utterly indispensable.

L Merriam, President CoLinear Systems

Mitch has a wealth of knowledge and experience that is invaluable to me in my position as CEO. More importantly he knows how to think outside the box when dealing with each new opportunity. Mitch has helped our business tremendously in developing new business relationships and I will continue to use his services whenever possible.

S Parsloe, CEO MaestroTec, Inc.

I just completed a consulting call with Mitch Russo. Wow! I didn't know it was possible to get so much done in one hour. Mitch asked very incisive questions and helped me think through issues of branding, steps in a sales funnel and pricing all in the way only a true pro could do. I am already looking forward to my next call with him.

Ellyn Bader, Ph.D, Director The Couples Institute

We were attracted to Mitch Russo as a coach because of his phenomenal track record of success with the very things we were trying to do. That was the most important criteria to me—that he had already been where we wanted to go, rather than just knowing the theory or making educated guesses. Most coaches simply haven't accomplished what Mitch has accomplished. He has not just deep experience, but great outcomes to draw from.

Our experience working with him was even better than I expected. I can't imagine how any coach could be more effective than Mitch was at guiding us to the next level. We are inspired, motivated and very clear on what to do next. Everything was broken down and simplified. Besides just laying out specific tasks, Mitch did a substantial amount of work for us, saving us countless hours and expense. We received tremendous value for our investment.

He answered questions we didn't even know we had, but that clearly will save us a lot of time and energy we would have wasted trying to find our own way. He lifted up our vision to what was possible while also putting a firm foundation under that vision. If you have the chance to work with Mitch, grab it. You'll be glad you did.
