Kathleen’s extensive experience in business coaching and understanding of the complexities and day-to-day challenges that Nationwide business owners face in strategy planning and execution has been invaluable to my agency. Kathleen’s help for me could not have arrived at a more opportune time as I had just completed my MBA and needed a business coach to help me take “business management theories” and begin the process of strategy planning and execution. Kathleen’s passion, insight, optimism and can-do attitude while working with my agency was a huge breath of fresh air that I would recommend to any Nationwide agent. I got way more than my money’s worth!

I’ve worked with Kathleen for 2 years. Initially I used her services to assist me in hiring the right person for the position I was trying to fill. Her assessment tools helped me greatly in identifying the right candidate with skill set needed. As a follow up we would talk about managing the staff to new heights. She gave me insight into what I was doing and helped me see the light through the fog we often find ourselves in due to the daily grind of running an agency. Her assistance has helped me achieve the goals set by the agency to have a growing profitable agency.

I highly recommend this program to any Agent that wants to grow their business, learn excellent management tools, learn how to hire right the first time, learn how to set goals & have a detailed follow through system, learn about their employees and what makes them get excited about your business, to create a TEAM of Excited Employees.

I made President’s Conference because I qualified for it. Me!!! I did that!! But it wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t had Kathleen in my ear, coaching me, encouraging me, checking on my progress, questioning my resolve, on a constant basis, week after week after week. I qualified for President’s Conference, but Nationwide should have sent you to Maui, right along with me!

My coach’s communication style is professional, enthusiastic, engaging, and supportive. My goal is to operate a top selling, growth agency and as our weekly coaching sessions progressed she skillfully guided me to explore my own paradigms regarding success and helped to identify behaviors both in me and my staff that get in the way of us reaching our goals. With these new insights, I have implemented some new management and sales strategies that have already resulted in a higher sales volume. The executive coaching process was well worth the time and expense.

Just a note to let you know how pleased I have been with your coaching sessions. Your style is always friendly and easy going, yet professional. We are now in our second year of using your coaching services. I have been able to begin the process of effecting some change per your coaching in our procedures and processes that I feel will enhance our efficiency and bottom line performance. I would be happy to act as a reference point if anyone would care to call me. Best wishes for continued success.

As you are well aware my business is constantly trying to push the envelope in all ways. Our business has undergone drastic changes in services as well as personnel and marketing and trying to get control or an understanding of this change has been daunting. Since I have been meeting with you and putting those issues out into the open I have found myself better equipped to make decisions in regards to personnel, marketing, service, and even personal issues.

Kathleen helped me evaluate the needs in my agency that I was lacking or putting off. I finally created the urgency for me to get my practices in place with her assistance. I hope to work with her again in 2010.

Kathleen, thanks for all that you have done for Frank, Me, and our Management Team. We are all better at what we do as a result of your training and tutelage.

Most Agents are good salespeople, however, they lack experience with employee relations and management. Kathleen can fill this gap. I had the opportunity to work with her late last year and she was extremely helpful!! She helped me exit some people out of the business and assisted me in the recruiting process. She did an awesome job!! I think her service could be very valuable to other agencies.

Kathleen has been a tremendous resource for all things business, especially all my HR issues. She has helped me create a dynamic atmosphere at my agency in which all things are possible. I would recommend Kathleen to anyone who wishes to maximize the productivity of their agency workplace.
