Having been recently promoted to Regional President of a southern bank, I was given the opportunity to engage in an executive coaching relationship with The Edmunds Group.  In a word, my experience was outstanding! The sessions provided powerful insight into my strengths and weaknesses, and allowed me the opportunity to identify where I needed to elevate my management style to become the most effective I could be in my new position.  It also allowed me to relate to and better utilize the different aspects of my personality.

The executive coaching experience facilitated the leap toward becoming a more motivated individual, effective manager and a leader of people.  I would highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to improve their management skills and increase their confidence.

The Edmunds Group staff is truly professional, and it was a pleasure to work with them.
