Ed is a very insightful coach whose questions have triggered great changing processes in my life. His experience in the corporate world and his overall atittude towards life and relationships is an inspiring source of energy. R.Altavini, Global Exec

The power of this process is that the coaching isn’t about “symptoms.” We will work until we’ve uncovered the “source” of the areas that are holding the leader back from moving to peak performance. And, we’ll capitalize on the strengths that are identified by both the SEIP 360 and the Qualitative 360. That powerful combination has produced remarkable results for leaders!

Ed brings together years of powerful, inspirational and influential 
leadership skills. Combined with his amazing intuition and exceptional grasp for what is really important in life, Ed is exceptional at helping people design, develop and follow their road map in life. He is truly an amazing executive coach, mentor and leader and will guide you to the next level. J.Arnold, Executive Coach and Consultant
