Coaching Testimonials

“We are all busy people and we don’t think about what would keep us fulfilled in life along the way, we wait until there is a crisis. [Coaching is] such a great way to keep from hitting that wall."
- Christine (Arts executive) Minneapolis MN

"Judi caused me to find some stuff in myself I suspected was there. I didn’t even know for sure if what we were finding was useful. I’m happy to say it was."
- Darren (Pastor) Fort Collins CO

"My coaching experience has helped me identify my values and strengths, giving me calrity for my life's mission, this brings a sense of purpose and satisfaction that effects my family and ministry.”
- Tammy, cross-cultural worker in former Soviet Union

"I can highly recommend Dr. Judi Iverson-Gilbert in terms of her professionalism and gift for helping people generate ideas, focus those ideas, and develop action steps to get where you sense God is leading you. She has worked with Hilary and me in the past and our time was quite worthwhile."
- Stu, Asian Access

"Missionaries must overcome many challenges to be effective in their work. Often their confidence is shaken when they are uprooted from all that is familiar and secure as they work in a culture that is not their own. Even routine tasks can became a great source of stress. Because of these challenges, I believe, missionaries may be some of the best candidates for coaching. . . . My coaching experience has helped me identify my values and strengths, giving me clarity for my life's mission; this brings a sense of purpose and satisfaction that effects my family and ministry."
– Tammy, Assemblies of God missionary former Soviet Union

“I truly enjoyed taking another online course with you as I was able to discover, ‘discipline.’ …. I contribute much of this to your leadership style and want to thank you . . for your feedbacks, encouragement and appropriately challenging us in our studies. Thank you, thank you and thank you.”
