As a result of Mona’s ability to quickly understand the business contexts and challenges that I described, and her ability to tailor feedback, I walked away from each of our discussions with clear action steps to achieve the desired outcomes we discussed. I also appreciated the thoughtful questions Mona asked to make sure I was thinking broadly and anticipating roadblocks that may occur as I pursue my goals.
Mona is an excellent coach. She is a great listener and she articulates ideas in a way that I found easy to apply to my situation. She gave me reading materials to review between sessions and would ask for my feedback on progress. I particularly found the role-playing exercises beneficial by enabling me to see areas where I needed to improve. I feel my work with her has helped me to be more efffective in my workplace and with my colleagues. In fact, after I completed our initial sessions: I have reached out to her for coaching in other areas.
Mona is more than a highly accomplished manager and leader – she is a caring, perceptive developer of people. She is passionate about coaching others in their quest for successful careers and meaningful lives. She possesses and effectively applies that critical balance between candid and nurturing feedback. Perhaps most important, Mona understands and respects differences, and works with individuals and groups to turn those differences into collective strengths.
Mona possesses an extraordinary ability to bring out the best in people as well as systems. The wide and deep regard for her abilities as well as her character is no accident; she earns it. She is clear about processes, tireless in gathering feedback, and abundantly helpful in providing new skills, awareness and knowledge. Mona also possesses a deep and abiding regard for privacy and confidentiality-a trait that is all too rare in our instant-gram/twitter/snapchat-crazed society.
Mona is calm and steady; provided me with things I can put into practice…and helped me formulate goals and a plan to implement them.
Mona was excellent at guiding me to get to specific things I can do to address areas I want to focus on. This was extremely helpful.
Mona is a trusted and reliable colleague. She and I have worked together on projects, leading changes, and overseeing organizational restructures. Mona is a level-headed pragmatist who will work to resolve conflict and move initiatives forward. Mona would be an asset to any individual or organization who hires her.
