"Doug is a confidant outside of my organization. He helps me with leadership and gives me different perspectives on my business. I value having someone to hold me accountable for meeting my goals and deadlines."
William Lavage, President & CEO, Service 1st, Danville, Pennsylvania
"Coaching has given me perspectives on running businesses unrelated to mine and shown me common points that all businesses share. It has given me discipline and motivation to keep trying to make the business stronger. It gives me positive reinforcement and hope. It has opened an avenue of communication between my partner and myself that I never thought possible. It gives me someone to talk to about my successes and worries, who doesn’t find it a drag, and keeps in confidence. I appreciate Coach Doug’s honesty and holding us accountable for our actions and words.
