Rob De Toni
After 23 years of being a litigation lawyer, Rob realized that the stresses of practicing law had finally caught up to him. Near his breaking point, Rob decided to do something about it. Embarking on a journey of self-development, Rob learned the importance that loving ourselves, resilience and intentional living play in achieving your best life possible at work, at home, and at play.
The personal growth I gained after working with Rob is incredible. The skills and knowledge I gained working with Rob not only helped me accelerate my professional growth but personal as well. At the time of my executive coaching experience, it was a challenging point in my career. Rob had the background and the interpersonal skills necessary to help me find the right direction. He provided many relatable examples, along with resources, which enabled me to better navigate difficult situations. I have and will continue to recommend Rob to anyone who wishes to pursue executive coaching.
Heather is a kind and gentle soul with an unbelievable insight towards human emotion and behaviour. She has an uncanny ability to hold space and encourage deep self-exploration in a safe, caring and supportive manner. She coached me to take action and hold myself accountable. I learned to remove the “white noise”, lean into adversity and to use my strengths to pursue want I wanted. I am forever grateful for Heather’s wisdom, passion and support.
I started working with Rob at a time when I was a bit sideways in my thinking about launching my new business. I felt like I was pushing myself against a wall in terms of where I was in my process and where to focus next. Rob was an outstanding listener and asked me great questions. I was able to begin to see where I was with greater clarity. I experienced a new level of energy to build a plan to move forward. As a coach, I appreciate the idea of being challenged to see things differently in order to push forward. Rob challenged me in a thoughtful manner and is a very effective coach.
Working with Heather as my executive coach has been a real pleasure. While highly supportive she helped me through a process of self-discovery by challenging me to consider new perspectives and deeper understandings on issues related to my professional development. With her inquisitive nature, she prompted me to reflect on the alternatives, the pros, and cons and to question my true motivations and desires. Through this, I gained the clarity I needed to see my problems where previously I had been unable.
After identifying the steps that I needed to take to make my goal a reality, I came away feeling focused and energized with a renewed sense of commitment. Her coaching was very effective combining an intuitive approach all the while pushing me to confront and deal with the problems. She was definitely the right coach for me and I would highly recommend her!
Thank you, Heather, I am grateful for your assistance.
