I wholeheartedly endorse and support the value of professional coaching that Victoria Eastwood delivered to our group, that was simply too busy in our day to day to see the importance of team behavior until we met Victoria. We have a larger team and we have hired her once again to ensure our team remains high performance in 2016 and beyond.”

Victoria coached me during a job search. I found our sessions to be extremely helpful.   Victoria asked the right questions, and shifted my perspective about what I really wanted with respect to my career.    I know that my approach to interviewing, networking, etc. improved, and more importantly, my confidence increased.  I am grateful for the guidance and coaching that Victoria provided me during this time.”

“I’ve known Victoria for many years and have always used her advice and guidance although until recently I never thought of it as coaching.  Victoria asks the probing questions when I am trying to reason through a problem or situation that help me to get to the right decision for me.  Importantly, it’s my decision – Victoria has an innate ability to help one to make and own both the reasoning process and decision.”
