Doug’s ability to draw out real mindset shifts has been so incredibly impactful for me, both in the role I had while being coached, and in my new role. We focused conversation on the “why” of the behavior, and then made slight tweaks of behavior to develop better habits. I would absolutely recommend Doug for anyone looking to improve performance, capitalize on strengths, and drive results.
