Testimonials

Geoff Poulton

President | Vista Radio

I interviewed several coaches and found most of them were ‘advice givers’ when what I needed was an ‘insight provider’. Coach Callie’s personality instantly made our coaching sessions feel like a ‘safe’ place. She changed my paradigm by providing me honest feedback and encouraging me to view issues from a different perspective.

I now find myself preparing for and reacting to certain situations much differently. I now come from a ‘curious’ place, which has not only made me way more effective but also reduced the stress associated with thinking I had to know the answer!

I appreciated Coach Callie’s supportive, honest and progressive approach. She tailored her sessions for me. I found the experience extremely fulfilling and very helpful not only professionally but also personally.

I would recommend CoachConnect to people who want a different perspective. Someone that knows they are missing ‘something’ but aren’t sure how to articulate it let alone how to address it. But be warned, they will not let you get away with ‘throw away answers’ or the platitudes you are currently crutching on.

Sr. Director of Strategic Engagements and Development | SafeCare BC

I began working with Coach Callie because I was stepping into a new leadership role and I wanted to know how I could maximize my strengths and overcome challenges to support my team and the organization. She helped me recognize how to leverage my strengths and build capacity in other areas to be a better leader. As a result of coaching I feel more confident in my abilities as a leader and knowing where I have to work harder to grow my skillset. I appreciated her simple and honest approach. I was given tools that were easy to use and adopt to make sure I was putting my best self forward. The process was enlightening. She was very encouraging, which inspired me to make changes because they felt attainable.

I would recommend CoachConnect to anyone who wants learn more about themselves, gain confidence, become better with the way they provide coaching to others, and want to make positive changes in their communication style.

AJ Brekke

Director of Emergency and Trauma Services | Interior Health

I engaged in coaching because I knew that I needed external support to get my professional life on track. I was lucky to have participated in a workshop with Coach Callie approximately a year prior to requesting a coach so I knew her presentation style, her mannerisms, her approach and they all felt very ‘right’ for me. She helped me sort through the issues and prioritize what mattered most to me.

Over the course of approximately 6 months I was able to regain some of my lost confidence. I appreciated her listening and non-judgemental attitude. I felt very at ease from the first time we spoke. If you are ‘stuck’ on which direction to proceed, or can’t seem to overcome barriers CoachConnect will help you move past these.

I began working with Coach Callie because I was leading my organization through a big change. She helped me envision the desired outcome, hold the vision and be present when faced with negativity and stress. I gained clarity and was able to create a path forward for my team and me. I learned to adapt to shifting priorities and never lost focus. She helped me to focus on realistic actions and challenged me to get out of my comfort zone. I would recommend CoachConnect for anyone who wants to grow in his or her personal and professional life, improve results and develop their team.
