Bernie helped me navigate the early stages of my self-care and narrative coaching business and his advice was priceless. He took into account the many moving parts in my life (studying, working to pay the bills, and trying to launch this venture) and encouraged me to work towards balance and sustainability in ways that felt completely in line with my ethics and needs. I cannot recommend him highly enough – his coaching helped me in the business but also in my ability to manage complex and often conflicting demands, and I feel better positioned to continue meeting my goals than I was before our work together.

The time I spent learning form Bernie was extremely helpful to me – both professionally and personally. Years later, I still reference the principles he taught me. His military background provides a great base for his logical approach to strategic planning, ownership, and moving an organization forward. I would highly recommend his help for any group or organization (or individual) that is trying to get to the next level.

Bernie’s depth of experience and flexible work style allowed him to meet the challenge of working with my executive team as we went through a significant business transition the past 2+ years. Bernie’s guidance and ability to get my team focused on disciplined execution was extremely valuable and directly contributed to substantial, measurable results in our business. He was also instrumental in connecting us with various tools, saving us valuable time. We will continue to work with Bernie.

We hired Bernie to coach us through a transition time in one of our operating companies where we were experiencing challenges with planing, execution and team building during succession planning.
Bernie’s perceptions, patience, innovation, and creativity were of great assistance. He was able to work with many different personality types. He proved to be very personable, had a deep knowledge and expertise of the issues, and produced deliverables on time, which all proved to be a great example of his leadership. I highly recommend Bernie, to provide guidance through similar circumstances to the business community.
