Anthony has coached me in many life phases…he has led by example and is direct when asked to hold me accountable. I greatly appreciate his habits that allow him to empower others…If you have an opportunity to work with Anthony, you are in good hands.
He has made a significant impact on my business, as well as others in my organization. I hired Anthony because I wanted to have someone alongside me to identify key factors of growth potential in my business, and he has encouraged and admonished me along the way, just as I had hoped.
Anthony is a great servant leader – truly dedicated to the success of his direct reports and entire team. I look to Anthony as a life and business mentor and would recommend him as a mentor and business leader.
I really appreciated his insight, and I can credit many of my newly-built good habits to our time together. His coaching included very targeted time together voice to voice, additional work and accountability outside our calls, and the books and talks he introduced me to, which came together to create an experience I would recommend to anyone building a business.
