In this world you cannot achieve success alone; you need to surround yourself with many different types of people in order to truly reach your full potential. Having a leadership coach in your entourage, who is successful in their own right, is also a key factor in breaking through your perceived “ceiling”. I have been working with Steve Rosen for almost 3.5 years as a client of his one on one leadership coaching. From the very start, Steve helped guide my career and approach with his unique and effective coaching style. Steve will help you reach your full potential. He will also be there when you need encouragement to fight through adversity; he will remind you that “It’s not supposed to be easy!” I am grateful to have worked with Steve and to call him a friend, mentor, and coach.

We had many discussions regarding several individual cases, as well as the team in general that always lead to some actionable tasks that would help resolve issues or improve performance. Starting out using Steven’s 360 feedback tool was critical to benchmark where some of my blind spots were. We then worked together to build an actionable and written plan to build on and strengthen these skills. I would highly recommend Steven to Managers, Executives and coaches alike. He is very adaptable and extremely knowledgeable. It has been an absolute pleasure to work this past year with Steven.
