What Clients Say

Trisha D. Scudder

My whole attitude has changed.  I am much more relaxed and thus handling the ups and downs at work in a much easier way.  It seems as if the old triggers that set me off no longer work.  I am able to set them aside and "get on with it" instantaneously. Thank you for emphasizing that personal life and health are just as important as my professional life.

My work with you over the past six months has been transformational. I have a clearer vision for the organization and have been able to get exponentially more work done through others…this has expanded my perspective on life and has enabled me to attract healthy, supportive personal and professional relationships.

I read Margot’s bio and something clicked. I decided to give the coaching a try and by the end of the second session I was sold! I am happy to say I have been working with Margot from Executive Coaching for almost a year now. 
 
Margot has helped me in so many ways, to see things I didn’t realize and accept or admit things I did. Both my business and I have grown while working with her. I have accomplished tasks that I have been putting off for years. I’m striving forward while acknowledging road blocks and the ways to break through them.
 
I cannot recommend Margot  enough!"
--Debbie H., Graphic Design Agency, Laguna Woods, CA
I was continually impressed by ECG’s professionalism and knowledge…and am extremely happy with the results I achieved with Margot. The coaching experience was by no means 'cookie cutter.' Margot quickly and accurately assessed my strengths, my weaknesses and immediately understood what I wanted (and needed) to do to excel at a new and growing management role within a global financial services institution.
 
During our work together Margot demonstrated terrific intuition; was candid and realistic in her coaching; and was able to share examples to help me envision and adopt possibilities. 
 
Margot made a huge difference in my career!"
