Matt H, Hotel Manager

45 Degrees coaching was given to me as a gift at a difficult time in my career. I was skeptical not because of their expertise but that anyone could help me sort out the issues that I had bouncing around my head that were adversely affecting my job. From the very start, I could tell that they were not going to give me the answers, however they were guiding me and being the “voice on my shoulder” to play devil’s advocate to help provide me channels to make whatever changes I felt would reduce or remove the barriers that I was experiencing. It was a very organic process with homework that was very effective in providing me the clarity needed to rework my needs, expectations and demands of myself. This in turn, led me to the path necessary to bring my challenges into focus and eliminate them one at a time. They were critical to getting me to the stage of self fulfillment and career redirection that I have taken. I highly recommend 45 Degrees for any assistance that you may need whether that involves personal or career examination.”

Ronni O., Paralegal

“Professional coaching, personal coaching, and family parenting strategist…I have found them to be extremely talented and knowledgeable as a coach. They are an engaged listener and easily able to identify the heart of challenges and strategize a game plan with her clients. They explain that coaching is much different than going to a counselor. They work with velocity. You come away with a recap of your discussion and a list of goals. There is follow-up, and the techniques work. They make it fun! I wholeheartedly recommend coaching with 45 Degrees individually, or in a small group setting.”
