Testimonials: Executive Coaching
“I have known Dr. Barbara Gronsky for a few years, during which time she worked separately with myself and two of my staff on different aspects of management and leadership within a large pharmaceutical company. These were diverse and challenging assignments, which Dr. Gronsky approached in a rigorous and systematic manner, with in-depth collection of relevant background information, appropriate planning and clear articulation of the objectives and outputs. The face-to-face meetings were focused and productive, with Dr. Gronsky exhibiting an engaging, pleasant and very professional, results-oriented style; importantly, there was significant follow-up. Overall, she made a big difference with my staff and I, and we continue to see the fruits of her work. Dr. Gronsky clearly has a breadth of experience and expertise and I would have no hesitation in recommending her as an Executive Coach.”

"Barbara has been my executive coach for the past 5 years and she has made a significant impact on my career. She is exceptional at engaging her client on both a professional and personal level which allows her to dig beneath the surface and identify the real areas for development, and she backs that up by providing the kind of real world coaching necessary to experience true growth in those areas. I rely heavily on Barbara's insight and coaching and I highly recommend her to anyone who is on a trajectory towards, or already in, a senior management role."
