"Ed has everything a leadership advisor should have, from experience to methods to the right credentials. I have seen him coach professionals on a variety of leadership challenges and he is able to guide executives and leaders to solutions and results. He does this with a calm focus and keen intellect, along with great listening skills. He gets to the root of pressing problems quickly, enables clients to develop a plan to address them in practical and efficient ways, and – simply put – gets results. If you seek a leadership advisor and executive coach with substance, training, and natural ability, you will be very glad you have worked with Ed."
