"To be coached by Lois means embarking upon a journey filled with encouragement, transparency, and growth, while learning to be resilient when challenged with adversity.  Lois will teach you not only how to think as an executive leader, but she'll also teach you how to act, deliver, and be seen as an executive leader.  It's SO much more than just achieving great results - it's a transformation of the "whole professional" and merging that with your natural style and personality.   That is perhaps the greatest benefit of the many I received while being coached by Lois--a transformation of mindset, action, and visibility.  I couldn't see it at the time, but she did, and that transformation moved me forward at lightening speed.  Since being coached by Lois I've moved from an individual contributor to a senior leader reporting directly into C-suite!" - RB

"Ms. Lois mentored me when I first got my job out of college. Most recently,   she has helped me to navigate a new company and new role. Her wisdom was invaluable to me. She helped focus on key issues and strategize how to overcome them. My manager was so impressed he gave me a promotion to Director and put on the Executive Retention program." - CH
