“5 Stars — Highly Recommend”

I started working with Stephanie in the fall of 2020 to get a better sense of my strengths and weaknesses (or “balconies” and “basements” as Stephanie calls them) as a leader. I found her counsel invaluable and felt much better situated to approach my work from a strengths-based perspective and to talk about the assets that I bring to a group or a project. She even helped me apply for and take on a new nonprofit leadership role. Since then I have worked with Stephanie and Wendy to help turn my big picture thinking into actionable steps, and to engage my board in a way that was impactful and meaningful for all of us.

The women of SideKick! are excellent coaches and insightful thought partners who really do provide a safe and supportive environment for those of us who want to do our very best for our missions and our organizations.
