“Deena and I worked together during an inflection point in my 20-year career. With a small child at home, I was questioning the impact I was making at work and my ability to be physically and emotionally present at home for my daughter. She helped me understand the challenges I was facing professionally, and whether those were being influenced by internal or external factors and address them accordingly. The result was clear insight that it was time to do things differently as I had in the past. And more importantly to gain confidence within myself to do so. Working with Deena has been invaluable to me during this turning point in my professional life, and an absolute pleasure to work with.”
“My coaching sessions with Deena were invaluable in terms of helping me see myself through the lenses of others. She has a wonderful way of asking questions that prompt another level of thinking so that it became a process of self-discovery in a non-critical and supportive environment. It’s obvious that Deena cares deeply for the people she coaches and offers a forum to explore the possible outcomes for various scenarios being considered."
"As the founder of a CSR and cause marketing firm, I place great importance on working with value-based individuals. This is Deena in a nutshell. She immediately understood what my company stood for - and even more importantly, what I did, subsequently helping me to set clearer goals for myself, break them down into actionable steps, and overcome obstacles in the process. Her ability to take complex situations and distill them, and to simultaneously support the personal and professional needs of her clients makes for an incredibly valuable coach. I couldn't recommend Deena more highly."
“Deena’s encouragement over the past year to take time and reflect on the things that are important to me, while also considering how to better leverage my strengths has enhanced my leadership potential. By challenging me to use my knowledge and self-awareness, while also offering a fresh perspective on issues I’m faced with she’s helped me to identify better solutions. Through Deena’s coaching my confidence as a leader has grown, my voice is heard more often, and I’m making career choices that reflect who I am and what’s important to me.”
"I recently went through a complete career change which would have been impossible without Deena's coaching, encouragement, and unwavering positivity. Deena gives solid direction and advice but also knows exactly when and how to get me to find the answers within myself. I enter our sessions presenting Deena with my anxieties and uncertainty (which can feel insurmountable at times!), but leave every session feeling confident, assured, and inspired. Deena is able to address and facilitate a range of issues and consistently surprises me with how easily and accurately she cuts to the core of the problems I present her with. I've taken ownership of my life in a way I never thought possible thanks to Deena's coaching!”
"Deena Goodman has worked with several people within our organization on executive presence and general presentation skills. One of these people worked very closely with me and I had watched her struggle with these issues for years. Shortly after she began to work with Deena Goodman, my colleague began to blossom and other leaders around the organization were asking me what had changed about this person. The transformation was very noticeable and while some couldn't exactly put their finger on what had changed, the entire perception of this woman was suddenly different. She would present very well and with confidence and ease during both internal and external presentations and conducted herself in a much more comfortable and assertive manner in all interactions."
